Hillary Clinton has not driven a car since her husband was in the White House -- and it's "one of the regrets I have about my public life," she said Monday.

"The last time I actually drove a car myself was 1996, and I remember it very well," Clinton told a National Automobile Dealers Association audience in New Orleans. "Unfortunately, so does the Secret Service, which is why I haven't driven since then."

That means Clinton has not driven since her husband, former President Bill Clinton, was in his first term.

Hillary Clinton won't need a driver's license should she choose to run for president in 2016, as she is currently considering. But Republicans nevertheless joked Monday about her remarks.

"Maybe she put in a tape of "The Macarena" [which was on top of the charts] during her last time behind the wheel?" the Republican group America Rising posted on its Tumblr, along with video of Clinton giving her speech.
