Vieira_10.26.JPGNow that his “Dancing” days are over, this week, Tom Delay, known as the hammer during his time in Congress, is the “Ask the Expert” on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire.” The show, hosted by the Today show’s Meredith Vieira, Skypes in an expert as one of the contestant’s lifelines.

Delay dropped out of “Dancing with the Stars” earlier this month after suffering stress fractures in both feet.
