Do you know the nine states that ratified the constitution? How about every word of the Declaration of Independence? Abby does…and she's only 6 years old!

Back in 2003, 4-year-old Abby came on The Oprah Winfrey Show and wowed the audience with her rendition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. She's also one of Jay's favorite guests—he has invited her on The Tonight Show six times! "She's so cute, and she knows everything. It's hilarious," says Jay.

After sharing her favorite quotes with Oprah and Jay, Abby was anxious to talk politics.

"I was talking to my dad the other day, and I told him since I learned so much about politics, I should join a political party. But my dad said, 'Abby, I think you're too young to join any organized political party.' So I thought about it, and I said, 'How about I join the Democratic Party? They're not very organized.'"

Abby isn't sure the Republican Party is right for her either. "I'm pretty sure I don't want to be a Republican. Nine of our presidents have been shot, and six out of those nine were Republicans. It's not safe to be a Republican," she says.
