An interview with former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura that was supposed to air on CNN last week finally made it to air on Friday night.
Ventura was set to appear on Piers Morgan's show last Friday, but breaking news over the resignation of CIA head Gen. David Patraeus resulted in the pre-emption of the interview.
On Friday's pre-taped segment, the outspoken Ventura talked about the re-election of President Barack Obama and the legalization of marijuana with Morgan.
Discussing Obama, Ventura said, "I think the big thing he has going for him is that he has four years that he doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected. When the president's in this position, having been elected a second time, now he's got nothing to lose."
Ventura also praised his home state for defeating the constitutional amendment that would have banned same-sex marriage.
"I'm very pleased because we had the gay rights issue in Minnesota where they wanted to put in our constitution that marriage was between a man and a woman alone, and it failed," Ventura told Morgan. "So hooray for the state of Minnesota for standing up and voting against discrimination."

Ventura didn't talk his own political future on the segment, like when he discussed a possible run for the White House in 2016 during an appearance on ABC's "The View" in September.
He did, however, tout his TRUtv show, "Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura."
