Jimmy Carter on the role his grandson played in Obama's reelection: "I think it was the pivotal moment"

Coming up this evening at 9, former President Jimmy Carter joins Piers Morgan for a candid and revealing face to face interview, as the nation's 39th commander-in-chief touches upon everything from Obama to "Argo," Iran to Israel.

Sitting down together in San Diego, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host asks his guest about the man currently occupying his old position:

"Last time we spoke, you sort of suggested you didn’t have much of a relationship with President Obama. Have things improved or deteriorated? Or are they about the same?," inquires Morgan.

"About the same," Carter answers honestly. "He and I respect each other, when he came to Atlanta this past week his staff invited me to come to the speech."

Speaking of their recent visit in Georgia, Carter explains how one of his own family members, played a key role in helping the president win reelection last November: FULL POST

Clips From Last Night: Cousin found out about Reeva Steenkamp's death over the radio; Gun advocate talks about the feminine appeal of firearms; Remembering Larry Hagman

With the South African police's dismissal of the lead investigator presenting a new twist in the case of Paralympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius, on Wednesday evening Piers Morgan invited Kim Martin to offer personal perspective and unique insight on a story that has captivated people across the globe.

A cousin of Reeva Steenkamp, the model girlfriend shot dead by Pistorius on Valentine's Day, Martin spoke of the "surreal" moment of learning the news while stuck in traffic and listening to the radio:

"I just remember thinking the whole time that there's no way," said Martin. "This is not - somebody is playing a joke, and they're going to - the radio guy is going to come on and say that this is a big joke."

Continuing to express disbelief, the guest simply could not accept the passing of her cousin:

"Reeva is not supposed to be dead. Reeva had her whole life ahead of her. She was going to be doing great things."

Also as part of last night's "Piers Morgan Tonight" program, the host continued the gun conversation, welcoming Paxton Quigley who spoke specifically about firearms being used by women.

The author of "Armed and Female, Taking Control," Quigley addressed gun manufacturer marketing campaigns that are geared to a female audience, and the ways in which such advertising impact sales:

"I think they're [gun manufacturers] marketing that way, but I don't think women are following in that way," she told the host. FULL POST
