A couple of days into private life, former Secretary of State James A. Baker III says he's still trying to decide "what I want to do when I grow up."

Baker, 62, on Friday visited Rice University in Texas, which last week announced creation of the James A. Baker III Institute of Public Policy. Baker will serve on the board but says he isn't sure how much time he will spend at the new think-tank.Baker's grandfather served as the university's first board chairman from 1891 and 1941.

Baker returned to Houston on Wednesday after President Clinton was sworn in, as did longtime friend and former boss, George Bush.
