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:
"He met my grandson who was the one who found the forty-seven percent tape and pretty well-turned it," explains the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize winner.
Immediately recognizing the significance of such a development, Morgan seeks more detail:
"So basically, Carter won Obama the election," he suggests. "It was a key moment, actually. Do you think that was the pivotal moment in destroying Mitt Romney's chances?"
Equal parts proud and humble, Carter answers:
"I think it was the pivotal moment. I believe it was. It was something that he could not deny and it stuck with him for the rest of the election and I think it was a major factor if not the major factor."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening at 9 for the full interview as Carter reveals exactly what the President said to his grandson when the two met a week ago."
