Bill Clinton Turned Down ‘Dancing With the Stars’

You wouldn’t think you could top the casting of Chaz Bono and Nancy Grace on “Dancing With the Stars.” But it turns out it could have been Bubbalicious.

In an interview with Rachel Ray former President Bill Clinton revealed that he was asked to be on the show but “told them I didn’t have the time to train for it. You know you actually go out there and you train, you really work at it. So I had to pass. But I think it’s a hoot.”

The entire Clinton clan are apparently big fans of the show. “I have a 92-year-old mother-in-law who watches it religiously.” said Clinton referring to Hillary Clinton’s mother, Dorothy Rodham. “She thinks I would be really cool if I made it, but I had to pass,” he said.

Horizontal Mambo is hardly acceptable for network TV.

Sadly, that would not be the least demeaning thing he’s done to the Office of the President.

Good Grief.

Clinton has no concept of the Office of the President of the United States. Never did!

He is the penultimate narcissist - an attention whore of the first order.

Someone make him stop!

That’s a shame because I think he would have mastered the Hand Dance.

Honestly, I doubt if he could handle the physical activity. There are loads of stories that say his heart is in really rough shape. He was lucky to survive his surgery.

If they have a show called F-ing With The Stars he’ll be on it for sure.

Bill Clinton to Chaz Bono: “So I hear you're still a women, below the waist.” “Meet me behind the stage in five minutes, you know how I like fat chicks, but for gods sakes, shave that awful beard first.”

"You know you actually go out there and you train, you really work at it. So I had to pass."

The truth is always obscured with dems and especially BJ so, a correction is in order.

The producers of Dancing With The Stars have ruined the program, IMO. I turned it off last night as it was boring and I didn’t have a clue who the people were. I didn’t even recognize Nancy Grace, OMG!

1. He’d actually have to work at it, and he’s too lazy to practice.
2. He won’t do anything in which he can be eliminated for not being proficient enough. He can’t cheat on DWTS the way he can in golf.
3. There’s nothing in it for him. They won’t pay him, and he’s already world-famous.

They’d have had to rename it DANCING WITH WOLVES.

You are correct, he is no physical condition for that strenuous of exercise, in his latest photos he does not look at all well. Think the Piper has come collecting...

On the other hand, seeing Goober vapor lock in mid-step would be funny...

For Clinton the show would have to be renamed “Dancing with the Serial Rapist”
