Tom DeLay on 'Dancing With the Stars': 'Conservatives Can Have Fun Too'

DeLay Dancing His Way to a New Image?

DeLay's appearance on "Dancing With the Stars" gives the former congressman an opportunity to remake his image.

"You're reaching an audience that otherwise is going to tune out politicians," Stuart Roy, a former DeLay spokesman, told ABC's Rick Klein . "What people don't see -- but political people will -- is that the promotion of the show goes far beyond putting out a press release."

And DeLay said he planned to use his skills honed in Washington to his advantage.

"Some people said I was the best whip that ever served," he said. "I'd be a fool not to use that skill in this. I'm going to go after the American people, show them that I can dance."
