With the 2012 general election now merely a dozen days away, on Thursday "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited John Sununu to share his incomparable blend of political perspective and impassioned insight.
Welcoming his guest live from Boston, Piers Morgan asked the former New Hampshire governor about Colin Powell's recent endorsement of the incumbent:
"Colin Powell has decided to opt for President Obama again, despite apparently still being a Republican. Is it time he left the party?"
"I'm not sure how important that is," replied the 73-year-old adviser to Mitt Romney. "Frankly, when you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder if that's an endorsement based on issues, or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama?"
"What reason would that be?" wondered the host.
"Well, I think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being President of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as John Sununu also reveals his stance on rape, and the recent comments made by Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock.
