NEW YORK — Sarah Palin doesn't sound too gung-ho about Mitt Romney as the GOP presidential candidate, but she insists that anyone is better than Barack Obama in the White House.

Anybody "would be infinitely better than what we have today," Palin said Tuesday on the "Today" show.

The 2008 vice presidential candidate was responding, sort of, to host Matt Lauer asking if she is happy with Romney as the presumptive Republican nominee.

When Lauer asked her why voters should put Obama out of office when recent signs suggest things are improving under his economic policies, Palin replied: "They aren't getting better fast enough."

Palin, who was interviewed during the NBC morning show's first hour, was scheduled to serve as guest co-host in the second hour.
