BOSTON—They were at odds during the presidential campaign, but Gov. Mitt Romney said when his wife Ann fell ill, one of the well-wishers who phoned the family was President-elect Barack Obama.

Romney said Obama told him that he and Michelle had his wife in their prayers. Ann Romney had surgery recently to remove a precancerous lump in one of her breasts.

Romney made the comments during an interview on CNN on Sunday.

The former Massachusetts governor praised some of Obama's cabinet picks and said Israel has the right to defend itself against Hamas rockets.

Romney also said he has no interest in becoming the next head of the Republican National Committee -- but plans to continue raising funds for conservative Republican candidates.
