Senator Joe Manchin on the shutdown: "When you jump into a pigpen, everybody comes out with a little bit of stink on them"

Roughly 24 hours since Washington politicians seemingly reached across the aisle to effectively reopen the government, on Thursday evening Piers Morgan asked Joe Manchin to assess any damages sustained during the course of the last 16 days.

A Democratic Senator from West Virginia, Manchin offered a color metaphor in indicating that the recent shutdown did not discriminate in its wide-ranging consequences:

"When you jump into a pigpen, everybody comes out with a little bit of stink on them," he told the "Piers Morgan Live" host. "If anyone thinks they walked away from this, or one side won and one side lost, we all lost. The American people lost."

Noting the value of bipartisan negotiating, Manchin offered his message to those that he feels have allowed the nation to creep dangerously close to the debt ceiling:

"You will go back, the Budget Conference hasn't met for four years," he noted. "Start doing your job."

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