After Granholm's fiery speech to the Democratic National Convention last week - which some have called her Howard Dean moment - a video has surfaced on You Tube of her on the dating show.Boyd and Granholm could not stop laughing after watching the video, Boyd said."It's living proof that she lived in the bad-hair decade," she said. "The Detroit Free Press reported late Thursday that the video was posted by Marty Nislick of Bayside, N.Y., a Democrat who found the footage on the Facebook page of a friend who was one of the contestants not chosen by Granholm.NBC completely revamped "Tonight," at the time, turning it more into a late-night "Today Show."

He also welcomes her as "the cute and curvaceous Jennifer Granholm."Another question Granholm asks: "What form of transportation should all girls be built like and why?
"One guy said a rowboat - "round and solid at the stern."The video appears to have been edited in places, so it is difficult at times to follow some of the questions and answers.
