Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is joining CBS News as a contributor. Her new role was announced Sunday as she appeared as a panelist on CBS' "Face the Nation."
"Everybody knows Condoleezza Rice was President Bush’s Secretary of State but I'm highly pleased to announce she has a new job. As of today, she’s joining CBS News as a contributor," said host Bob Schieffer said.
Ahead of the inauguration of President Obama's second term, Rice recalled beginning a second term working under George W. Bush when she was nominated Secretary of State, and how quickly the time passes. "You better know what you want to achieve in these three years or so," she said.
