Anchor Marco Werman talks to comedians and co-authors Chris Cannon and Brian Calvert about their new book, America, But Better: The Canada Party Manifesto.

The book takes a poke at some of the differences between the countries and suggests that Canada should run for President of the United States.

"We just want to come and help America," says Calvert, "to fluff its pillows and serve it some soup and just kind of let it rest a bit and let us take the helm for a while."
