Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice threw her full support behind Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney Wednesday night, but did she also hint that she’s leaving the door open for her own possible White House run?

“On a personal note,” Rice said near the end of her speech at the Republican National Convention, “a little girl grows up in Jim Crow Birmingham, the segregated city of the South where her parents can’t take her to a movie theater or to a restaurant. But they have her absolutely convinced that even though she can’t have a hamburger at the Woolworth’s lunch counter, she can be president of the United States if she wanted to be, and she becomes the secretary of state.”

Rice’s name surfaced in July as a possible running mate pick for Romney. She subsequently shot the idea down, saying there was “no way” she would do it “because it’s not really me.”
