Rumors of Cindy McCain vying for a slot on Dancing With the Stars may or may not be true, but it's the Obamas who would probably have a better shot at taking home the disco ball trophy.

So says DWTS veteran pro Karina Smirnoff.

I caught up with Karina earlier today on the DTWS tour bus to get her thoughts on President Obama and first lady Michelle's first dance to Beyoncé's rendition of Etta James' "At Last."

While Karina calls the Obamas' slow dance "magical," she does think their footwork needs some practice. "They were fairy-tale-like, but a little stiff," she says. "Good news, though—he has four years to loosen up. The fastest way to loosen up is a couple shots of tequila!! But if they are willing and have the time, do DWTS and turn pro."

We know that's not going to happen. Even so, Karina coos, "This season of the presidency promises to be the most exciting yet. Alas, we have a contender for the trophy."

Sure, the coveted disco ball would be perfect for the Oval Office. And what world leader wouldn't automatically relax once they got a gander at the mirrored masterpiece?
