Paula Abdul may soon be sitting at a new judge's table, if the president of ABC has his way.  Steve McPherson said he'd love to have the former American Idol star join his Dancing with the Stars team, either as a judge or a celebrity contestant.

"I think she's a huge talent," the TV exec told reporters on Saturday. "I think that there's a lot made about her in terms of who she is. And I think there's a sensitivity and a kind of emotion to her that balances out Idol. And we'd love to get a piece of that. It would be great."

Paula's "sensitivity" unfortunately didn't help her out of a parking ticket Saturday.

But ABC's McPherson has a more up-close-and-personal view of Paula's emotions.  He and Abdul dated years ago.
