Nelson Mandela Claims He Didn't Want To Be President In New Book

Nelson Mandela never wanted to become South African president and would have preferred a younger person to become the country's first black ruler, according to a new book.
Mandela says in the book "Conversations with Myself," due to be launched Tuesday, that he only accepted after senior leaders of the African National Congress put pressure on him.
