Bristol Palin is on "Ellen" this Monday and talks about . . . "DWTS," her mom, dating, Levi -- whom she says knowns nothing about politics (imagine that!) . . .and so on. Pointedly asked about her mom running for prez, Bristol assures Ellen that she's got her vote . . .

Bristol on ex-fiancée Levi Johnston running for mayor

Ellen: Can we talk about the baby Daddy. Can we talk about Levi (Johnston)?

Bristol: Sure

Ellen: Levi is running for mayor? Is that right?

Bristol: Yes.

Ellen: How do you feel about that?

Bristol: . . .He has to move to the city limits and get his GED before he can actually run.  If he wants to continue his education that's great.

Ellen: Do you think he'd be a good mayor? Do you think he knows about politics?

Bristol:  No

Ellen: He doesn't seem to. I just find it so surprising that he would run.  That is an important position.

Bristol: Yeah, it is an important position and I don't think he knows what he is getting himself into.

Ellen: Have you ever seen him interested in politics at all before?

Bristol: No . . .

Bristol on dating 

Ellen: There are rumors that y'all  [Bristol and Mark Ballas, her DWTS partner) are dating. You're not going to tell us if you are, but are you?

Mark: No.

Bristol: No, we're not.

Ellen: But if you were you wouldn't tell me any way.

Mark: No, I'd tell you.

Ellen: Really

Mark: Yeah, but we're not.

Ellen: Are you dating anyone?

Bristol: No, I'm not.

Ellen: Is it hard to meet people that you trust now?

Bristol: Yeah, it's really hard for me to want to date after the situation I had myself in and I'm not worried about a boyfriend right now.

Bristol on her mom Sarah Palin running for president 

Ellen: Is your Mom going to run for the president? I've heard she would if no one else runs . . .that's not going to happen because someone will run. Will she run?

Bristol: I don't know but I hope she does.
