Dancing politicians

Man those governors know how to party! Governor Rendell was officially made head of the National Governor's Association this morning, concluding a weekend of events with governors from around the country. During his speech Rendell noted that the real rock star at a Sunday night party at the Convention Center was Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, often listed as a possible VP pick for Republican presidential candidate John McCain. Governor Palin was the first governor to dance, the only governor to do the electric slide, therefore scratching her from the vice presidency," Rendell teased. Hmm. McCain didn't dance when he went on Ellen. Unlike his Democratic rival Barack Obama. Do you want a president who knows how to shake it?
