With America's collective confidence in Washington, D.C. seemingly at an all time low as a result of the current government shutdown, on Tuesday evening Piers Morgan invited Jesse Ventura to share his unique and refreshing brand of political perspective.
With a live studio audience hanging on every word, the former professional wrestler once known simply as "The Body" proudly explained why the doing away with traditional parties is the logical step in regaining the country's faith and trust in the voting process.
"Is it feasible in our lifetime that you could have a candidate running for president who was successful who was not a member of the Republican or Democratic Party," asked the "Piers Morgan Live" host.
"I did it. I won the Governorship in Minnesota, and was not a member of the Democrat or the Republican," declared Ventura.
However, is such a political victory realistic on a national scale?
"Sure," said the author of the new book "They Killed Our President: 63 Reasons to Believe There Was a Conspiracy to Assassinate JFK." "If I'm allowed in the debates. But you notice those two parties control the debates? They won't let anyone else in them. If I can debate them, Piers, I can beat them. It's that simple."
Watch the rest of the clip, as Ventura goes on to explain why he's never used a prepared speech during a debate, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.
