Maya Soetoro-Ng previews half-brother President Barack Obama's DNC address

Continuing his coverage of the Democratic National Convention from Charlotte, North Carolina, on Thursday evening, Piers Morgan sat down with President Barack Obama's half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, for a live interview.

Speaking prior to Obama's adddress to the DNC, Soetoro-Ng admitted she was "very excited for the speech," predicting that her brother was going to "lay out the next four years and he's going to do so asertively, elegantly."

Soetoro-Ng also spoke about Monday evening's star speaker, Michelle Obama, calling her "the perfect partner for him [Obama]."

"She is very strong," she continued. "She's sort of balances, healthy and practical firmness with gentleness and nurturing and she's a terrific mother and that is enormously important."

Listen to the clip, and tune in tonight as President Barack Obama takes the stage at the Democratic National Convention.

    C'mon Piers! Who is Biden kidding! He was talking about americans being in chage of their own health care. Did he become a Republican behind my back and I didn't know it? I'm only 57 years old, have one pre-existing condition and am pretty healthy overall and I CAN'T get health insurance anywhere! Thank you Obamacare.

    Could the CNN pundits tonight be any further in the tank for Obama? Gloria Borger is practically drooling over Bill Clinton. As an old saying goes: We know Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama is no Bill Clinton.....

    Last week the CNN pundits were going on and on about how Mitt romney did not provide "specifics".
    We heard no specifics from Barack Obama tonight, yet has CNN obsessed on that point as they did last week? So far, I've not heard it. All we heard from Obama was the same empty promises he made in 2008. Yet, CNN, as usual, can't contain themselves over this convention.
