Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's wife said Wednesday it's a shame voters aren't picking the nation's leader this year.

"Well, it's too bad the election isn't today," Ann Romney told CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "It's frustrating a bit to watch what's happening with the Obamacare rollout, but we are where we are."
With President Barack Obama's approval numbers sinking in recent polls, an Obama-Romney matchup might have been quite different in 2013.

For example, a Washington Post/ABC News poll in November that asked respondents for whom they'd vote if the 2012 presidential election were held this year, Romney led Obama 49 percent to 45 percent.

"We don't look back," Ann Romney told CNN. "Neither one of us ever look back."

She also said she thinks several Republican women would do well in the 2016 presidential election, including Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez.

"We have some extraordinary women that are representing New Hampshire, South Carolina, New Mexico that are doing great jobs," she said.

Romney said that in Congress, however, lawmakers need to be more sensitive to one another — and respectful of U.S. voters.

"Let's remember that the American people sent us there, and we need to be respectful of the needs of the American people, let's get things done," she said. "Let's work across the aisle because . . . I mean, it's just extraordinary what's going on in Washington."
