Between Bristol's run to the finals and reports that her father, Todd, may be next, many people can't get enough of the Palins on Dancing With the Stars.

One judge on the show certainly can, though.

"I think one Palin was enough," Carrie Ann Inaba told E! News, responding to Todd Palin speculation. "I think we need to go on a Palin vacation for a bit."

Palins mean ratings, but that's not enough to sway one judge.

"Although it was such great media attention, I think it was too controversial," Inaba explained. "I think people got confused about what they were rooting for"

"Are you voting for dancing on the show or are you voting for a Party? I think it made it uncomfortable for a lot of people who just want to see dancing."

Bristol Palin brought unprecedented buzz and ratings to Dancing with the Stars. So much so that the producers are dying to go back to that well once again.

This time they want Bristol's dad, Todd, who reportedly turned it down this season before Bristol joined. "They want him big time," a source told E! News.

Bye Bye Mike

This amid reports that Sarah forced her daughter to do the show. "They'd love Sarah herself, but that will never happen, so why not dad," the source said.

DANCING DUDE? Will Todd Palin follow in Bristol's footsteps?

The show is also after someone else connected with the 2008 GOP ticket: Meghan McCain, daughter of Arizona Senator and two-time presidential hopeful John.

Todd Palin, husband of Sarah and father of Bristol, was approached for this season of Dancing With the Stars as well, the former Alaska Governor said.

Bristol Palin has survived three weeks thus far on the current season, but was she even the dance competition's first choice among her own family?

"They wanted Todd to be on the show," Sarah Palin said at a Houston, Tex. speaking engagement. "I think that would have been cool to see, too."

The politician didn't say whether producers originally wanted him instead of Bristol, or in addition to the teenage mother of 18-month-old Tripp.

Bristol is doing great in any case, Sarah reports: "She is way out of her element, out of her comfort zone, and she is the first to admit that."

Would Sarah herself ever compete? Only if they incorporated basketball.

"They would have to let me dribble back and forth and maybe pivot and do a jump shot or something as part of the routine," she quipped.

Todd Palin Quotes

Todd Palin [on his wife]: I remember the first time she ran for mayor one of her fellow council members told her you can't run because you've got three negatives: Track, Bristol and Willow. Those are the three kids we had at the time. So when you tell her that kind of stuff, she just gets fired up. We're an Alaska family that adapts.

He's been trained for this mission and so we've seen that confidence in that young man. We're, of course, nervous.
