Hilary Clinton Declines Offer to Dance With the Stars

dance.gifHilary Clinton might be falling behind in the Democratic Race, but she has another career to fall back on should her Presidential bid fail. FishbowlNY received an email sent to the former First Lady by Jared Paul, a co-producer on Dancing with the Stars — The Tour, inviting her to appear as a dancer on the barnstorm.

The dates listed run from January 31 to February 10. We can only assume she was otherwise disposed.

According to the email, the genesis of the offer was an appearance on The Tyra Banks Show, where Mrs. Clinton said “if [paired] with one of those really good partners” she might someday like to compete on Dancing with the Stars.

Next time keep your mouth shut, Hil.
