The Tyra Banks show e-mailed me a notice about the program they taped with Hillary Clinton today, which will air on Friday. Here’s the gag-worthy quote of the day from Sistah Hillary:
TYRA: . . . If you were a contestant on a reality show, would you rather be on Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, or America’s Next Top Model?
SENATOR CLINTON: In my dreams I would be on America’s Next Top Model but in reality I would have to chose my limited talents and of them dancing is better than singing. You do not want me to sing.
TYRA: What type of dancing do you do? Do you do hip-hop? Can you do the Soulja Boy or the Spongebob dance?
SENATOR CLINTON: I have heard of those . . . I think that is a variation of what I did like 30, 40 years ago.
TYRA: My mother says the same thing.
SENATOR CLINTON: Everything gets recycled and gets a different name and [changes] slightly the hip action or shoulder action, whatever it is. I think it would have to be Dancing with the Stars, especially if I could have one of those really good partners.
NATIONWIDE CONTEST FOR A NAME FOR BILL CLINTON
TYRA: Now if you win, you are going to be Madam President or Madame?
. . . He [Bill Clinton] has to have another name because . . . it would be your time.
SENATOR CLINTON: Well, that is true. He will always be Mr. President but now we need to do a nationwide contest for a name.
QUESTION: Like a reality show.
SENATOR CLINTON: Like a reality show. This is good, because think about it; here are some of the things that have been suggested like First Mate. His Scottish friends say “First Laddy,” but we need ideas. I’ll just keep calling him Bill.
