"Sarah is a genius at marketing herself and her message. She doesn't care about all the old rules about how political people are meant to behave and act. Sarah believes the best way is to go directly to the people - use Twitter, Facebook, 'Dancing With the Stars' and 'Entertainment Tonight' to get potential voters excited and leave 'Meet The Press' and those boring Sunday morning shows to the old-school politicians," the New York Daily News quoted a source as saying.
O'Donnell is a fan of the show, and tweeted her support for Bristol on Monday. "I just voted for Bristol on DWTS!" she wrote, encouraging others to vote. A network executive with ABC told Shuter, "Christine is not a bad idea at all. After Kate Gosselin and Cloris Leachman, O'Donnell would fit right in."
“She certainly would be so controversial that the amount of press attention and buzz the show would get would be huge. Plus, you know they would make her dance in a witch''s hat with a broomstick," the executive added.
