Bill O'Reilly appeared on the "Today" show Monday morning and discussed his upcoming interview with former President Bill Clinton.

Speaking to NBC's Carl Quintanilla (who was in for Matt Lauer), O'Reilly agreed that interviewing Bill Clinton on his Fox News show has been a goal for quite some time. When asked how he finally got the interview, O'Reilly revealed his secret. "I appealed to his manhood," O'Reilly said of the former President. "I said, 'Hey! We had your wife in. Come on!'" O'Reilly added.

O'Reilly told Quintanilla that he planned to ask Clinton what he really thought of GOP candidate Newt Gingrich. "Is Clinton going to tell me the truth? I don't know, we'll see," O'Reilly said.

Hillary Clinton appeared on "The O'Reilly Factor" in April 2008 when she was running against President Obama in the Democratic primary election. The interview was heated and confrontational at moments, but mostly friendly.
