Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has joined CBS as a contributor.
Her new job was announced Sunday morning during Face the Nation by host Bob Schieffer.
Rice, 58, is the 66th Secretary of State under President George W. Bush and the first female African-American to hold the post.
Before joining the Bush Administration, she was a professor of political science at Stanford University.
Last year, Rice gave a powerful and popular speech at the National Republican Convention and it was rumored she would return to politics.
During her first appearance on Face the Nation as a CBS contributor, Rice took part in a round-table discussion. She spoke of her personal experience during the civil rights movement and said she did not have a white classmate at her Alabama school until she was in 10th grade.
Rice also spoke about the Republican Party and said it has a "political and policy problem," adding, "the Republican Party has to demonstrate it has broad appeal."
