Coming up soon, Piers Morgan sits down for a face to face discussion with one of the most-decorated and respected women in the history of Hollywood and the arts, Barbra Streisand. Joining "Piers Morgan Tonight" for an hour-long primetime interview, the 70-year-old icon, and staunch Democrat, reveals that romance and politics aren't necessarily mutually exclusive.
"Have you ever been in love with a Republican?" asks the host.
"Never," Streisand responds.
"Could you ever be?," follows Morgan.
"No," she insists. "Well, I mean unless there was an enormous sexual chemistry and, you know, and I had to - we never talked about politics, maybe. But I can't quite imagine it, no."
A supporter of gay rights, and a woman who's on the record as always having identified with minorities, on Friday the star of 1964's Broadway hit "Funny Girl" opens up about President Barack Obama and the aspects of his platform that have made her most proud:
"His stance for women. Women, the power of women, or not allowing - just for that one reason. You know, in my show I would say, well, I'm not going to tell you ... who to vote for, but if you want clean air, you want, you know, good food and so forth, and if you believe that a woman has a right to choose what happens in her own body - in other words, or you think that your body belongs to the state. There's a clear choice."
Noting that America is "one of the last countries to ever think of having a woman be president," Streisand does think that electing a female commander in chief is now a possibility, and openly entertains the idea of the Secretary of State switching offices:
"I don't know, but I hope after a four-year rest that she would run," she says of Hillary Clinton. "Because she would be a great woman president."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in as Streisand offers her candid reaction to the comments made by Missouri Congressman Todd Akin and Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock regarding rape and pregnancy.
