Rice will make great President: Laura Bush
US First Lady Laura Bush said Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would make a "wonderful" President - but indicated Rice was a reluctant candidate.
Her comments were made in an interview to Cable News Network on Friday with talk show host Larry King.
"She would be a great President ... but we can't talk her into it," Bush said. "She would make a wonderful President."
The names of Rice, a Republican, and Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton repeatedly surface in discussions about the 2008 presidential race.
But Rice, a committed fan of American football, has made clear she would much rather become commissioner of the National Football League.
