On Thursday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcome Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and "Dan Rather Reports" Host Dan Rather to the program to bring their insight into the next four years on the Hill.
"I think we are going to see a different kind of dynamic with Congress," said Patrick. "The American people have affirmed a politics of conviction and rejected a politics of obstruction. It's very important for everybody in the Congress to understand and I think they do."
Rather, on the other hand, doesn't think President Barack Obama is going to have a successful second term. "The Republican Congress, particularly the leadership, they would rather walk through a furnace in a gasoline suit than do some of the things that President Obama is going to want them to do just as one person, one citizen, election's over, let's get this thing together."
Also on Thursday, Piers Morgan moderated a debate between two men from opposite sides of the argument about legalizing marijuana. Former Obama Drug Policy Adviser Kevin Sabet said legalization of marijuana is a terrible idea. "Legalization is really an extreme answer," Sabet said. "The issue is legalization isn't going to do these things that are being promised. I'm still waiting for the lottery to save public education and for alcohol taxes to pay for the cost that alcohol brings to society. The math doesn't work."
"We know one thing. Marijuana prohibition has been a massive failure," said Brian Vicente, an attorney who campaigned for Amendment 64 in Colorado. "Washington and Colorado have decided to move forward with a new approach and end the failed policy of prohibition. Marijuana prohibition didn't work any better than alcohol prohibition."
Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as the debate on legalizing marijuana continues to rage.
