WASHINGTON -- Conservative radio host and Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham was a featured speaker at the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference. She told HuffPost's Zach Carter and Howard Fineman on Friday that she's also a big fan of our boss, Arianna Huffington.

In an interview after her speech, Ingraham told Carter and Fineman she appeared on our live video stream "only because I love Arianna, because she's my friend for so many years I can't even count."

Ingraham went on to joke "I'm a total liberal."

She also ribbed Fineman: "Ever since I met you, I've been turned left."

"Wait until you get to know Zach," Fineman said.

"No, Zach has pushed me over the edge," Ingraham said.
