Margulies: Real politics a "difficult" world

Julianna Margulies is one of the most celebrated women on TV. The Emmy Award-winning star of the hit CBS drama "The Good Wife" is known for her role as a wronged wife of a politician. She stopped by "CBS This Morning" for its launch to discuss, among other things, the differences between the political world on TV and the real world of politics.

"I find politics to be fascinating to watch," Margulies said. "I think it's one of those things where I don't know if I could ever enter the arena of politics -- my father-in-law was in the Clinton administration in his last term, and it's a very difficult world to live in. ... It's a very difficult world and not one that I would want to be a part of."

In addition to her role on "The Good Wife," the former "ER" star also discussed the busy upcoming award season, her children, and the charitable causes -- including stem cell research -- which she supports.
