Cindy McCain wanted to compete on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," but her famous politician husband wouldn't let her do it, according to The New York Post.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) refused to let his wife appear as a dancer on the popular reality show, even though she "wanted to do it very badly," according to an unnamed source who spoke to the Post's gossip column, Page Six. Cindy McCain had gone as far as speaking to ABC producers about going on the show, the source said.
