Megyn Kelly would very much like to keep up with the Kardashians. Following her headline-making interview with 19 Kids and Counting's Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their daughters Jill and Jessa Duggar, the Fox News host has her sights set on a different reality TV standout: KUWTK's Kim Kardashian

In an interview for Variety's June 22 issue, Kelly, 44, said she's interested in doing more celebrity interviews — starting, perhaps, with the pregnant-again reality star, who's expecting her second child with husband Kanye West.

"I want to know if she's a force for good or evil," the Kelly File anchor mused of Kardashian, 34, already mom to North, 2. "I had someone make the argument that she's voluptuous, and maybe sending the message to young girls that you don't have to be a stick figure to be desirable."

She continued: "But I see the other argument too — it's all enhanced, and you send the message that you need to surgically alter yourself to the point of shocking to be attractive to men."

Kelly's wish list also includes Kardashian's stepparent Caitlyn Jenner, whose last on-camera interview was a headline-making chat with Diane Sawyer on 20/20 back in April, a little over a month before she made a splash on the cover of Vanity Fair.

Surprisingly, Kelly told Variety that she doesn't "feel passionately about politics" — but she would like to see a presidential candidate or two land in the seat opposite her.

"I think Hillary Clinton could handle me — easily," the journalist (who says she's an Independent) shared. "That would be epic television. Here she is, this powerful woman talking to somebody who is also a woman in a powerful post, who would never be accused of giving her a pass. Right?"

She continued: "But I respect Hillary Clinton, and all that she's achieved. I'd be under pressure, too. If you want to get big-name Democrats who are running for president, do you want to annihilate them? Of course not."
