Clips From Last Night: Lanny Davis on GOP negativity; Jennifer Granholm on religion and women

On the heels of Wednesday's CNN Arizona Republican Presidential Debate, on Thursday Piers Morgan welcomed a pair of Democrats to offer reaction and insight.

Former White House Special Counsel Lanny Davis held little back when dissecting the overarching negativity running through the GOP race:

"I think that (Mitt) Romney has rendered himself unelectable in the general election," predicted Davis. "We Democrats are going to have a tough contest but it couldn't be going any better from our perspective watching the Republicans destroy each other with character attacks as opposed to debating the issues."

Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm also sat down on Thursday's edition of "Piers Morgan Tonight." The host of her own program on Current TV, Granholm weighed in on the "religious rhetoric" of Wednesday's debate, sharing concerns with what she refers to as a "war on women's reproductive freedom":

"When you've got these governors across the country who are rushing legislation through their legislatures that end up depriving women of not just choice – but, you know – the stuff that was happening in Virginia for example, these transvaginal ultrasounds. I mean, it's shocking, this war that's happening," said Granholm. "That's not really a great argument in a general election either. Frankly, all of this, I think, bodes well for President Obama."

    It was refreshing to hear Carol Roth's calm, intelligent commentary. on the 2/23 program. Hope to see and hear more from her. If only the screaming, shrieking talking heads could absorb some of that appealing demeanor.
