GOP voters want Gingrich on ‘Dancing With the Stars’
They want Romney to manage their portfolios
Mr. Gingrich even began to weep when asked to recall his late mother during his chat in Iowa, while the others fielded questions such as how often they have fights with their spouses, and who apologizes first when they do.
Analysts have long speculated about the mythical beer primary — a belief that voters tend to give the benefit of the doubt to candidates with whom they would most like to share a beer.
On a more serious note, Mr. Gingrich came in second when voters were asked who the one candidate is they could never vote for. Rep. Ron Paul was first in that category, with nearly 30 percent of voters saying they couldn’t stomach him.
And then there’s the “Dancing With the Stars” issue.
It’s not far-fetched to imagine an invite could be in the mail. HollywoodLife.com said in December that the show is looking to add more politics to its lineup, and was considering asking candidates who dropped out of the race to join the show.
Mr. Gingrich’s lieutenant during the Republican ascendance in the 1990s, then-Rep. Tom DeLay, took a turn on the show in 2009.
That was followed in 2010 with an appearance by Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
