Jerry Springer's daughter wants him to be President

10/12/2006 at 10:00 AM ET

Katie Springer, daughter of talk show host Jerry Springer, seems to think quite a bit about her father.  She thinks so highly of him, that Katie wants Jerry to run for President of the United States.

"I will stand up to anyone verbally who attacks my dad because he’s wonderful… he would make one hell of a President," Katie told Access Hollywood. "I think people don’t realize what a huge heart he has. If my dad could change the world and make it better for everybody, he would."

Katie, who is legally blind and deaf in one ear, will be marrying in December and will dance the waltz with her father at the reception. Jerry, who has been seen recently as a competitor on Dancing With The Stars. has been learning the waltz from his dancing partner Kym Johnson.

"I think the trick is going to be practicing," Katie says.  But Jerry insists, "We’ll get it, we’ll get it."

Just out of curiosity: Might sound stupid to you, but what does legally blind mean? Is she almost blind?

Jee on

Yes, she could be almost blind. Legally blind means that she sees little enough to be put in the same category as people who see nothing at all. Of course you are also legally blind if you see nothing at all so that could also be the case for her!

Jerry can’t be president-he was born in England.

Love Jerry on “Dancing With the Stars.” He’s a great entertainer and his waltz, and giving Katie a hug at the end, was beautiful. He did a nice waltz, so come September, I’m sure he and Katie will have a nice father/daughter waltzing moment.

People who are legally blind can usually still see decently with very very strong glasses.
While Jerry Springer is intelligent and good-hearted, I don’t know if I could ever vote for someone who made money from such a trashy show. I am not a prude but that show is so tastless. On the other hand, we’ve had a lot of tasteless things come out about presidents, at least the ice woul already have been broken with Mr. Springer.
