In The "Hannah Zone"

It's always lively when Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly stops by our studio, and today was no exception. The super-busy dad, who is also a former teacher, has penned a new book for the younger set called "Kids Are Americans, Too." It's a testament to O'Reilly's popularity that the book debuted at No. 8 on the New York Times Best Sellers list. The big take away is that kids need to know they have the right to believe what they want, form their own opinions and stand up for their principles.

My kids are pretty interested in government -- politics in particular -- because I tell them a lot about various people I have interviewed when we have dinner. When I informed my 10-year-old that elections were held on Tuesday, she said, "Mommy, are they finally voting for president?" I laughed and explained that it was a whole year away although it does feel like we have been talking about that forever!

Check out my chat with O'Reilly about the presidential race, his take on Bill nd Hillary Clinton, as well as why he thinks New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg should not throw his hat into the ring.
