Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told the Ohio delegation at the Republican National Convention this morning that they share a bond that goes back to 2004, when she was the first to let Karl Rove know Ohio had swung to George W. Bush. Rice is now pushing for Mitt Romney. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more from Tampa.

Condoleezza Rice was supposed to be the finale at the last of the Ohio delegation’s breakfasts. But traffic being what it is – which is to say “awful” – the order got mixed up and she ended upended up going first. She spoke of debt, a pivotal election and hard work. But the foreign policy questions and answers came at a short press conference afterwards, in which she criticized the Obama Administration’s foreign policy, though not her successor, Hillary Clinton.

"The problem isn't Hillary Clinton, who's great, the problem is that we've chosen to speak with a muted voice about America's role in the world. We've chosen to try to lead from behind. That's an oxymoron to my mind. And whent he world doesn't know unambigiously where the United States stands, then you get chaos; you get the president of Egypt going to meet the Chinese about leadership before he's met the American president. When has that happened?"

Rice said she has no concerns about the lack of foreign policy experience on the part of either Romney or his running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan because both have demonstrated leadership. She’s expected to make that case tonight in a featured speech on the convention floor.
