Piers Morgan wants to interview Obama

Los Angeles: Piers Morgan has expressed his desire to interview the US President Barack Obama when he takes over from Larry King as a chat show host on CNN.

Morgan, who is a judge on Britain’s Got Talent as well as its American counterpart, said that the interviewees would not be "too highbrow" but would include "senior politicians".

"It`ll be a rip-roaring success," the Telegraph quoted him as telling The Sunday Times Magazine.

"Obama would be fantastic and right now a heart-to-heart with Mel Gibson ... We could get to the meat of the Mel problem quite quickly," he added.
