S.E. Cupp on Cory Booker being a 2016 Presidential candidate: "It's not unthinkable"

As news broke of Cory Booker's latest political victory, on Tuesday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited S.E. Cupp and Marc Lamont Hill to share their candid commentary and educated insights into the significance of the night at the polls.

By winning the Democratic party's primary, Booker advances to New Jersey's special senate election, where he'll face Republican nominee Steve Lonegan on October 16th.

While both guests raved about Booker's political acumen, with Cupp calling him "impressive," "charismatic," and "disciplined," and Hill referring to him as the "real deal," the pair had differing answers to Morgan's follow-up question:

"Is it unthinkable, S.E. Cupp, that he could just be fast-tracked to become a Democratic presidential nominee, even as early as 2016," wondered the host, as part of his "Breaking the News" segment.

"It's not unthinkable," suggested Cupp, who will co-host CNN's "Crossfire" reboot in the fall. "If you look at how quickly the Democratic machine seized on Barack Obama, then a senator with very little experience, and really, very little reason to run for president. It's absolutely not improbable that the Democratic machine would again seize on a popular senator, if in fact he becomes one."

Hill, a "HuffPost Live" co-host, saw it differently:

"I think long term he could certainly be a presidential candidate. I don't think the Democratic Party is going to push him in front of Hillary Clinton," he surmised, before offering a quick quip.

"I don't think America is nominating two Black guys in a row," noted Hill, admitting such thinking might be cynical.

Watch the clip for more of Piers Morgan's interview with Hill and Cupp, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.
