Clips From Last Night: Jimmy Carter on his relationship with President Obama and Carter shares his thoughts on Egypt

Last night Piers Morgan sat down with former President Jimmy Carter at The Carter Center in Atlanta. Carter talked about everything from his 65 year marriage to his relationship with President Barack Obama. "We don't really have any relationship," Carter said. "I wish it was a closer relationship." Carter said he does get a briefing from the White House when he asks for it.

Piers also asked Carter about finding peace in the Middle East:

He said the Muslim leadership "are very determined to put on a good face for the rest of the world and to show that Islamist can govern effectively and fairly and honor human rights."

    Thank you for doing such a very respectful interview. President Carter is so interesting when he relates current events to the Bible , I can't wait to get a copy of this book. I do wish you had more time to spend on Ms. Roselynn, she is such a giving woman. Not only is she a supporter of mental health but also for those with dementia and their families. Together they have done so much for the world and yet much of it goes unnoticed.

    Perhaps Mr. Carter is becoming senile. Elevated as a senior statesman, despite being the worst president in my lifetime, he has forgotten that he fomented hatred and racial divides in the early 1970s, or surely he would not be trying to do that now.

    President Carter was and is a godsend. He had and has the courage to say and do what was right. He didn't create hard times, but he did and continues to brilliantly show us how to address them, try our best - honestly and with love for others. We need more of this. Four years of peace doesn't happen by accident. - Good bless Jimmy and Roselynn.

    We are all so bloody sick of having left-wingers like Carter proclaim that people who dislike Obama's policies are nothing but racists. What a load of dreck. Carter is getting more bitter and more senile with each passing day.

      Left Wingers? Carter was so far to the right of center he could have ran as a Republican. He was more concerned with balancing the budget and came closer than anyone since Eisenhower. The bitterness is coming from right wingnuts like you.

    Carter is a lier.
    1. the Christian Arabs in Israel, have freedom, never were pushed out of Israel.
    2. Most of the arabs in Israel were always Muslim.
    The Galili always was mostly Muslim.
    Arab Christian are hated by the Arab Muslim. It got worse after the 1st Lebanon war. They were never pushed by the Israelies.
