Often, the surest way to curry favor with the American people is to win a reality TV contest -- which is why shows now in vogue with politicos include Dancing with the Stars (Tom Delay) and Celebrity Apprentice (Rod Blagojevich). But don't expect Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to join the fun someday -- at least not where singing and dancing is involved!
In a new interview with a Russian TV station, Clinton was asked if she had any artistic talents that she cared to make public -- for example, would she ever appear in a movie?
"Oh, a movie would be fine," the former First Lady replied. "But don't ask me to sing, and probably not to dance either."
Ironically, on the other side of the globe, husband Bill Clinton was joking about his own desire to show off his dance moves. Speaking at the annual Gridiron Dinner in Washington, D.C., the 42nd president of the United States kidded with politicans and press about why he was available to attend the event: "Since they turned me down for Dancing with the Stars, I have nothing better to do." (Although he was obviously not serious, one could credit Bill Clinton for kick-starting the musical politicans trend with his 1992 sax-playing appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show during his first run for president.)
If Hillary won't consider an appearance on DWTS, we have two words for her: Big Brother. Julie Chen will never know what hit her.
Plus: Dancing with Kate? No So Great.
