Romney: Actually, I'm glad Palin showed up in NH on my announcement day

“In a lot of respects it’s the best thing that could happen to me,” he said on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight.”

“Right now, your greatest enemy is overexposure. People get tired of seeing the same person day in and day out.”

And Romney, who also sought the GOP nomination in 2008, had nothing but kind words for Palin, who’s still batting around the will-she-or-won’t-she question.

“I think Sarah Palin is generating enthusiasm and interest in a campaign this year. That’s a good thing,” he affirmed. “She has a lot of energy and passion and bringing it to our race is positive for us.”
