What is it about Africa that makes US leaders dance? 

At a gala dinner in Nairobi this week Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got down on the dance floor. Check out the video, starting around 26 seconds in. Clinton looks like she was having fun. She was even the first one to throw her hands in the air like she just didn't care.

The video comes to us from Kenya's NTV, which stayed on to film the event after US press were kicked out following the top US diplomat's toast.

Who knew she had it in her? Secretary Clinton looks more at ease here than the last time we saw her get her groove on. 

Clinton also took some curveball questions in stride, including about an offer from a Kenyan city councilman five years ago for her daughter Chelsea's hand in marriageā€¦ in exchange for 40 goats and 20 cows.

Clinton laughed and promised to "convey this very kind offer" to her "very independent" daughter.
