'Dancing with the Stars' courts Herman Cain but he declines offer


By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/14/2012 

Dancing with the Stars is apparently attempting to waltz back into political waters again.

Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has confirmed the ABC reality dancing competition approached him to compete on its upcoming fourteenth season but he turned down the offer.

"He can't dance in an eight-count. He can only dance in a nine-count," Cain's executive assistant Lisa Reichert told the Atlanta Journal Constitution, referencing Cain's controversial "9-9-9" tax plan.

Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, competed on the show's eleventh season in Fall 2010 and finished third despite controversy that surrounded her participation, including death threats.

Last year, Dancing with the Stars also attempted to land Christine O'Donnell, the Delaware Tea Party politician who unsuccessfully ran for the U.S. Senate in 2010, for its twelfth edition. After being invited to appear on the show, O'Donnell had polled her Facebook followers asking whether she should take advantage of the opportunity. 

"I just got the Official 'Ask' from Dancing with The Stars !! Although I am utterly flattered, my initial thought was to decline, as 2 year old nephew has more rhythm than me, and my two left feet!! However Eileen thinks I should do it. What do you think?" O'Donnell wrote on her Facebook page last February.

While O'Donnell -- who ended up not being part of Dancing with the Stars' twelfth-season cast -- had received hundreds of comments soon after she posted the news, the feedback apparently carried little weight because she announced shortly afterwards via Facebook that she was "still undecided." 

ABC will reveal Dancing with the Stars' fourteenth-season cast live during the network's Tuesday, February 28 broadcast of Good Morning America at 7AM ET/PT.

Dancing with the Stars' fourteenth season will premiere Monday, March 19 at 8PM ET/PT with a two-hour broadcast and be followed by the edition's first one-hour results show on Tuesday, March 27 at 9PM ET/PT.
