Hillary Clinton: “I Was Very Happy That Maks Finally Won” Dancing With the Stars
Can you just picture Bill and Hillary Clinton sitting down Monday nights to watch Dancing With the StarsSeason 18? (Do you think they approved of Abby Lee Miller as guest judge?)
Hillary has been on a media blitz lately to promote her new memoir, Hard Choices, and she talked to ABC's Diane Sawyer about things both serious and just plain fun. For example, she did check out DWTS’s spring 2014 season and admitted she's a fan of the top-ranking pros — Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Derek Hough.
"I did watch it faithfully this season, and I really like both Maks and Derek, but I was very happy that Maks finally won," Hillary said, laughing. "I don't know what the man would have done with himself had he not. I was really worried."
You know you've made it clear you really want to win when even the former First Lady and Secretary of State is worried that you might not make it if you don't get a Mirror Ball trophy. She has a lot of big-picture-issues to think about (Benghazi, maybe running for president...), but somehow Maks's mental health still made the cut.
Imagine how much Hillary might care if Bill took to the dance floor. The former POTUS has plenty of things to do with his time, and he admitted he turned down DWTS in the past, but pros Cheryl Burke and Karina Smirnoff have both mentioned how much they would love having him on the show. Apparently Bill has a standing invitation. Hillary? Maybe not. But maybe she could guest judge! (Kidding. Although, it would be interesting to see if she’d be closer to Redfoo or Abby Lee.)
Are you surprised to hear Hillary is a Maks and Derek fan, or does that make perfect sense — since who isn’t a Maks or Derek fan?
