Rice: I Don't Want to Run for President For Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, no means no — and no again — when it comes to whether she will run for president. "It's not what I want to do with my life, it's not what I'm going to do with my life," Rice said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." A group pushing for a Rice candidacy has run a television ad in New Hampshire — traditional site of the first presidential primary — and plans to air it soon in Iowa, where the first party caucuses take place. At least two Web sites are promoting Rice even though Rice herself has said for months that she is not interested in running. Asked on NBC and on "Fox News Sunday" whether she would run for president in 2008, Rice said she is flattered but would decline. "I'm not somebody who wants to run for office. I haven't ever run for anything," Rice told NBC. "I think I'm doing what I need to do, which is to try and promote American foreign policy, American interests, the president's democracy agenda at an extraordinary time." Pressed by host Tim Russert, Rice said, "I don't know how may ways to say no."
"I may have jumped the gun, just a little..." Pirro hits up Hillary for money to battle Hillary By MARC HUMBERTTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS ALBANY, N.Y. — This is one check that definitely won’t be in the mail.
In an Aug. 19 fundraising letter, Jeanine Pirro told potential supporters of her race to unseat Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, “I cannot win without your support.”
Pirro sent one of those appeals to:
Hillary Clinton1600 Pennsylvania Ave.Washington, D.C. 20500-0030
That, of course, is the White House where Clinton used to be first lady.
The Pirro letter came to light just three days after the Westchester County district attorney reported raising $438,555 for the three-month period ending Sept. 30 in her bid for the GOP nomination to challenge Clinton’s 2006 re-election effort. Clinton reported raising $5.3 million.
“No wonder Ms. Pirro raised so little money,” quipped Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson on Monday.
