Condoleezza Rice on why she backed Rex Tillerson, a client of her consulting firm

Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric spoke to former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice about her new book, “Democracy: Stories From the Long Road to Freedom.” Couric also asked Rice about criticism of her supporting the nomination of ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson to be secretary of state when ExxonMobil was a longtime client of her consulting firm. Rice said, “If anybody thinks that I would actually recommend somebody for secretary of state because I’ve gotten to know them in a business relationship, well go right ahead and think it. That’s not how I roll.”
