Bill Clinton on Mitt Romney: "I think if he’s going to double down on that 47 percent remark, that will cause difficulties"

Coming up tonight at 9, Piers Morgan sits down with Bill Clinton for a fascinating primetime interview that comes as the former president is in New York for his CGI Annual Meeting.

More than a decade since leaving office, the 66-year-old Democrat outlines what he feels will be the key element for the opposing party and GOP candidate Mitt Romney:

"Well, I think, you know the debates are very important for him," he tells the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host.

"Crucial?" wonders Morgan.

Referencing the now infamous candid remarks made by Romney and caught on tape at a private fundraiser, Clinton answers in the affirmative:

"I think so, and I think if he’s going to double down on that 47 percent remark, that will cause difficulties, because we now know the overwhelming number of those people work and have children," he explains. "The reason they don’t pay federal income taxes is that median income is as low as it was in 1995 now, and until the current election season, Republicans and Democrats supported both the child tax credit and the earned income tax credit."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in at 9 p.m. as the man who served as the nation's 42nd commander-in-chief from 1993 to 2001 provides perspective on the NFL replacement referees, the upcoming Ryder Cup, and Iran's position on nuclear weapons.

    Anyone that is super rich does not know what it is like to work for low wages. It must be funny to think that the poor people don't count. Most of our inventions were made by regular people. There should be no minimum wage, instead there should be a living wage.
