Clips From Last Night: Aretha Franklin remembers Donna Summer; Deval Patrick on the American Dream

With the passing of singer Donna Summer on Thursday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited Aretha Franklin to share her thoughts and memories. Referring to the artist known as the "Queen of Disco," the "Queen of Soul" reflected on fellow music royalty:

"I thought she was a very gracious and a very nice person. Always beautifully gowned and well spoken," remembered Franklin in an exclusive interview. "We won't forget all those many hits she put out there."

Meanwhile, Thursday also revealed that a G.O.P. "Super PAC" is preparing for the release of an ad campaign more controversial and provocative than anything seen to this point. Designed to attack the president by resurrecting his relationship with Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., the plan is timed to coincide with September's Democratic Convention.

Joining Piers Morgan with insight and reaction to the Republican Party's latest strategy, Deval Patrick says it's an indication of something larger than simply the election:

"What's happening right now is not just a contest of politics," said the Governor of Massachusetts. "It's the notion that the American dream itself is up for grabs. And it's going to take all of us working together and coming together to save it."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Thursday's guests remember Donna Summer, and look ahead to an election in the Fall.

    was horribly disappointed with the interview with Aretha, she had nothing to do with Donna Summer and was uninterested with the topic...CNN you should have interviewed any of Donna's peers like Gloria Gaynor, Natalie Cole, even Barbra Streisand...People that were part of the Dance ERA!!! Aretha is too grand for her own good.

    I don’t think Israel is a thraet to the world. TamirHah! It's a thraet to world peace. If we have WW III it will probably be over Israel.What's the problem anyway? If you won't leave then why not set up a secular single State and with generous world support work to actively improve the plight of the Palestinians? You'd become world heroes!
