On Monday, television host and NBC "Today" show contributor Donny Deutsch helmed a special edition of "Piers Morgan Tonight," filling in as guest host, and welcoming an all-star female panel comprising of tennis star and U.S. Open champ Serena Williams, personal finance expert and television host Suze Orman, and morning news anchors Lara Spencer of ABC's "Good Morning America" and Gayle King of "CBS This Morning."
The diverse collection of strong, successful women talked pop culture and politics, all agreeing in their prediction that America would see it's first female president, in the form of Hillary Clinton, in 2016:
"I think we are not going to get a big debate on that one," said Spencer, marking the enthusiastic consensus around the desk.
The panel also addressed the issue of aging, and when it is too old to be an entertainer:
"I hope never," said Orman. "Age doesn't determine how old you really are."
Referring to the unique Republican National Convention speech by actor Clint Eastwood, King noted, "It's never good when your appearance overshadows the nominee."
Moving from speeches to sports, Williams shared the source of her winning attitude.
"I visit hospitals all of the time, children's hospitals," said the 30-year-old fresh off her U.S. Open women's singles championship. "These children have cancer. They're dealing with Leukemia. They're dealing with all kinds of diseases. But yet they smile. That stuff really inspires me."
The owner of 15 Grand Slam singles titles, Williams cited her opportunity to influence others as the key to her tenacity:
"I can be in the darkest of holes, in the darkest of positions, but I know that there's someone out there that I can help, I can change their life if I just never quit. That's just the mantra that I live by."
Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Williams further shares her thoughts from both during, and after, her spectacular U.S. Open victory.
