Dancing With the Stars fans who think political figures don't belong in the ballroom can breathe a sigh of relief: First Lady wannabe Ann Romney will not be appearing on the upcoming season.

A Romney rep told TMZ that Ann "was approached" about doing the show. However, despite being a known fan of America's biggest ballroom competition, Ann "declined" the opportunity, perhaps because shaking your behind in an itty-bitty ballroom costume is not necessarily the best way to help your husband's political career.

Are you glad Ann said no, or were you hoping she'd bring some controversy to the new season? Sound off in the comments below!

Dancing With the Stars Season 16 premieres March 18, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
