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.
