I’ve been following Elisha Krauss on Twitter for several years. We first bonded over a mutual annoyance we both encountered over her seven years as Sean Hannity’s producer nationally-syndicated radio show and my involvement in the conservative movement. Even when it’s about something negative, it’s always nice to know there are kindred spirits out there.

Elisha is now on the other side of the microphone as co-host of the morning show on KRLA in Los Angeles, California. "After being behind the scenes in radio for years, I know this is a huge opportunity to share my conservative beliefs with The Answer audience everyday," she said.

Co-host and author Ben Shapiro told me, “Elisha is not only one of the nicest people I've ever met, she's also immensely talented, witty, and self-effacing. Definitely a rising star, with the experience to prove it.”

Elisha is one to watch in conservative broadcasting. Her easy-going nature and commitment to conservative principles make her a fantastic ambassador on the Left Coast.

The De Pasquale's Dozen asks political figures and free market-minded writers and entertainers to take a break from politics and talk about their pop culture obsessions.

1. What one thing would you do as President "just because you could"?

Be a Navy SEAL for a day or ask to fly Air Force One.

2. Tell me about your favorite teacher and how he or she influenced your life.

I was homeschooled, so technically my teacher was my mom and even at times my dad (he liked handling science quizzes). They both influenced my desire to be self-driven, independent and hard working. And, my mom’s involvement in politics while dragging my little sister and me along for the ride definitely influenced the political geek in me.

3. If you could be paid to do anything besides your current job, what would it be?

A secret agent that would take down child sex traffickers… It’d be hard for me to deem them innocent until proven guilty and allow due process to take place though.

4. Tell me about a public or private moment when you thought to yourself, "This is what Elvis felt like every day.”
