Why is Perry “Dancing With the Stars?”

What do you do when you don’t win the Presidency? You dance on national TV.

That’s the plan for Former Texas Governor and Presidential Candidate Rick Perry.

He’s been announced as one of the contestants on the upcoming season of the hit ABC TV show Dancing With The Stars.

We asked Dr. Allan Saxe at UT Arlington what Perry’s motives could be for appearing on the show. he says since the former Governor doesn’t have a job, he’s probably looking for something to do.

“It’ll be fun for them and fun for us. He’s likely doing this to show a more fun side to his personality.”

Saxe doesn’t think Perry is using the appearance as a step towards running for a higher political office. Instead he thinks Perry just wants to have some fun.
