Reggie Jackson on the government shutdown: "I'm embarrassed and disappointed by our political environment"

On Friday evening, "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson for a candid and revealing primetime interview.

Joining Piers Morgan in person, the man who rose to prominence during the racially charged 1960's and 70's offered his assessment of a present day United States being led by an African-American president:

“I certainly think that some of the issues that [Barack] Obama has are because he is a man of color,” said the 14-time All-Star, and two-time World Series MVP. "I think that some people are still uncomfortable with...being told what to do, if you will...so, do we need change, do we need to get better, do we need to have better understanding, more continuity, more support for each other? Yes."

Thirty-six years after earning legendary status and the nickname "Mr. October" for his spectacular play in the 1977 World Series, Jackson is entirely dismayed by the effort he's seeing out of Washington during the Fall of 2013:

“I’m disappointed. I’m hurt, offended, bothered.. I could not do it. I couldn’t stop jobs, or stop payments for veterans,” said the man who lead his teams to 11 pennants, and five world championships, during a magnificent 21 year career. "The jobs that we've shut down, and then the trickle-down effect afterward. I couldn't do it. So, I'm significantly, I don't know heavy enough of a word, I'm embarrassed and disappointed by our political environment."

Watch the clip for more from the man who boats 563 career home runs, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN at 9 p.m.

    I am disappointed with the King as well Mr. Jackson. I didn't see your live interview, it looked like some of it was missing. So I went to You tube, but it was the same there. But just to let you know. Just think with a stroke of a pen the King could of paid those dead veteran families and didn't. The King also didn't have to close the veteran memorials either. Seems like it is all just a game to Mr. Obama. Speaking of games, I don't think they closed his Royal Golf Course.

    Shirle you are exactly right!! The American people are so misinformed, and that is exactly what Obama is counting on. Obamacare is going to wake everyone up, because it is going to hit them in their wallets!

    The joke concept of the shouted-at dog and the human who thinks the command is meant for him has appeared in other forums. During a temporary shutdown of operations at a large plant, trained police dogs were hired to protect the building from vandalism.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Once I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any means you possibly can take away me from that service? Thanks!

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

    Okay here are the details. I want to add a new button to firefox, the purpose of that button is that when i type something in the address bar in firefox and click that button in navigation toolbar, that must serve the purpose of "I am feeling lucky button on google homepage". Any super genius here?.
