Earlier this season, former U.S. House Minority Leader Tom DeLay was forced out of ABC's Dancing with the Stars competition due to stress fractures in his foot, but he returned to the dance floor last night to do the Texas Two-Step with Texas pride. He and partner Cheryl Burke gyrated, shook and sometimes two-stepped to George Strait's "I Can See Texas From Here".
