tv At This Hour With Berman and Bolduan CNN February 2, 2016 8:00am-9:01am PST
sure of his masculinity. no fear there. thanks. you made my morning. thanks for joining me today. at this hour with berman and bolduan starts now. hellhello, everybody. >> welcome to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. happening now, getting down to business in new hampshire with unfinished business in iowa. let us give you that business. a wafer thin margin separating democrats, hillary clinton and sanders with clinton ever so insanely slightly ahead, but a virtual tie. >> cnn has not yet called that race. that's how razor thin, wafer thin, whatever thin it is. the clinton camp is declaring
victory. sanders campaign says they want more information on the count sheets. they're still holding out. at this moment, we, frankly, do not know on that one. let's go to jeff zelny in new hampshire with the clinton campaign right now for much more. what are you hearing there? >> reporter: good morning. we know one thing. we know we have a fight in the democratic party. a delegate fight. the results in iowa last night were regardless of who ultimate comes out on top, signifies both of them basically received the same number of delegates. think back to 2008 when hillary clinton and barack obama went state to state to state fighting so hard over delegates. that is exactly what this campaign could turn out to be. i can tell you you can see behind me here in new hampshire, a big crowd for new hampshire this morning. she'll be speaking shortly with bill at her side. new hampshire does not always do what iowa does. they often do the opposite. we're entering a new phase of
the race right here and hillary clinton offered a clue to what she'll be campaigning on last night in des moines. >> it is rare that we have the opportunity we do now. to have a real contest of ideas. to really think hard about what the democratic party stands for and what we want the future of our country to look like if we do our part to build it. i am a progressive who gets things done for people. >> well, she said this is going to be a debate over what the democratic party looks like. of course, that is a subtle reminder that bernie sanders hasn't been in the democratic party long. he's a democratic socialist from nearby, vermont. some democrats here in new hampshire may take that into account. at least the clinton campaigns hopes they will. sanders is calling for a new
movement. he's calling for a revolution, if you will. he thinks that is what this country needs. take a listen. >> that is why what iowa has begun tonight is a political revolution. [ applause ] >> a political revolution that says when millions of people come together, including those who have given up on the political process, they're so dismayed and so frustrated with what goes on in washington with young people before who had never been involved in the political process, when young people and working people and seniors begin to stand up and say loudly and clearly, enough is a enough, when that happens -- >> so this, of course, will
determine how this race goes forward. his call for a revolution and her call for democratic activist and regular. the new hampshire primary one week away. so many contests ahead. the clinton campaign is stronger in the contest going forward. south carolina and nevada. before we get to that, we're looking toward iowa to see who won and of course, what happens here in new hampshire. the first clue comes tomorrow at cnn's town meeting then rivals share the same event space. they'll finally start drawing more distinctions with one another for that final week at the new hampshire primary. >> i have to say that town meeting tomorrow night, what about the timing? that will be fascinating. both of them have a lot of work they want to do. when hillary clinton starts speaking, we'll take you to the event. i'm fascinating. what is she going to say? >> we won? we'll take you there. let's turn to the republicans and talk about a wild night and
epic turnout busting through previous records. the clear winner, cruz. he was literally popping champagne bottles on the flight out of iowa. how long will the bubbles last? >> donald trump, he is 0 for iowa. his supporters not as sick of winning as he promised they would be. and rubio makes it sound like he won the most important bronze metal ever. jim acosta joins us now. jim, the candidates are everywhere this morning. >> reporter: that's right. and all morning long we were wondering when is donald trump going to speak? he's been quiet since his concession speech last night congratulating cruz for his victory in the iowa caucuses. it had been about 14 hours since his last tweet. donald trump campaigns a lot on twitter. guess what. he just sent out his first tweet since last night. let's put it on the skprecreens. he says my experience in iowa
was a great one. all the experts said i couldn't do well there and ended up in second place. nice. and this coming from a candidate who was all but predicting victory heading into the iowa caucuses. so now he has a struggle on his hands. he has to do what has to be done in order to win the new hampshire primary. you know, we were thinking yesterday and in the days heading up to the iowa if trump wins in iowa and new hampshire, it would be hard to stop him. now new hampshire is a must win state. last night he sounded gracious. it was not the brash billionaire speaking. he was being gracious, tipping his hat to cruz, and vowing he would fight on. here's what he had to say. >> iowa, we love you. we thank you. you're special. we will be back many, many times. in fact, i think i might come here and buy a farm. i love it. okay? i don't know who is going to win
between bernie and hillary. i don't know what's going to happen with hillary. she has other problems, maybe bigger than the problems she has in terms of nominations. but we've had so many different indications and polls that we beat her and we beat her easily, and we will go onto get the republican nomination, and we will go onto easily beat hillary or bernie or whoever they throw up there. >> reporter: if you were to do an investigation on why donald trump did not win in those iowa cauc caucus, look at our entrance polling. a lot of last minute voters went to rubio and cruz. the other thing we saw is that donald trump was not doing the retail politicking that iowans grav crave. cruz went to all 99 counties in
iowa. dru donald trump did not do that. he was outhustled by cruz. it's the same situation up here in new hampshire. people in new hampshire expect the candidates to come to the town hall meetings. donald trump may have to take a new look at his strategy if he wants to win here. >> and iowa for cruz, the first election in history that all came down to turnout. it finally happened. >> first one ever. >> jim acosta in new hampshire. thank you so much. donald trump's first tweet since the iowa caucuses. >> let's get back to the caucus cliff hanger, if we could. joining us now, bill press, and dan pfeiffer. great to see both of you. bill, we thought we'd play point counterpoint throughout this. bill, sell us on the point that it's a win even if it's not a win for bernie sanders.
>> wait a minute. you're asking somebody who has been around politics a long time to do the impossible. i'm not going to spin it that way. it was a close win. in politics, it's not like horseshoes. close doesn't count. a win is a win is a win. and if it's even 2%, i have to say that hillary clinton's the winner in iowa. even though i'd be first to say that sanders put up a great show. >> so, dan, let's continue on that theme. we've been hearing a lot over the last 12 hours how bernie won a moral victory. we've looked. clear about that. among first time caucus foers. sanders crushing hillary among young voters y. crushing on the issue on who is most trustworthy. he wins it by a ton here. given all these three things and the gaping chasms here, how did
she not lose or maybe prevail by the time the -- >> look, i think bernie sanders needed, if he had lost year, decisively, his campaign would be over. he needed some momentum heading into new hampshire to expand his electorate. the challenge for hillary clinton is iowa and new hampshire are two of the three worst states for her and the best states for sanders because they're very white. iowa and new hampshire and vermont, sanders will do well. the question is, and there's nothing in the data from last night that shows nothing different is whether sanders can take his coalition and expand it like obama did to include african americans and latinos. when you get to other states, as the bigger states start coming in in march. >> and on that point, bernie sate late last night, it's all kind of blending together, we were down 50 points when it
started. look where we are today. beyond new hampshire, let's make a big assumption he wins new hampshire. beyond that, how does he get past what dan is getting to? he does not have big support among african american voters in thamplt have long been with hillary clinton and bill clinton before that. how does he fight that? >> i think you have to recognize one thing we saw last night is with hillary's win but bernie's strong showing, you start 40 points down. no superpac. no wall street money. no establishment support whatsoever, and you almost beat the clinton operation. that's huge. and i think don't discount sanders. i think what we showed is he's a serious candidate. his campaign is for real. they know what they're doing. he's got a message that resonates not just with white voters. it will resonate with african american voters. i think we're going to see a long haul. this is great for the party and the country.
i think this could go all the way to the convention. two very j very candidates with a contest of ideas. god bless america. >> i think political people across the country when you said it could go longer. >> sanders said he's taking it to the convention. when a guy like that says that, that's what causes political premi tremors. give me the glass half full? what did work for them in iowa? again, just being there, the bernie sanders passion was everywhere. it felt like it was overwhelming everything. how did the clinton team fight that to a standstill? >> i think unlike 20 08, they had a good organization in iowa. they had precinct captains everywhere, and they were able to weather a much larger than expected turnout. they learned lessons from 2008 in terms of organizing how you
put the focus and resources in the field. what we're going to see in the coming weeks how that plays out. you'll run into a series of a burke bunch of caucus states. if hillary clinton can do better in those states than she did in 2008, she'll have a clear delegate lead and it won't go to the convention. every candidate always says it's going to the convention. i never goes to the convention. you can make your vacation plans if you want to get time off in early june or so. >> we can only hope. bill press, political reporters around the world waiting for that next time. >> thanks, guys. >> thanks so much. >> an important programming note. tomorrow night hillary clinton and bernie sanders going face to face with new hampshire voters, taking questions directly from those who will decide the winner and the loser next week. the democratic presidential town
hall. anderson cooper will be moderating. >> martin o'malley not going. he dropped out. moments from now, hillary clinton will speak live in new hampshire. her first campaign appearance since she did something in iowa. we're not allowed to say whether she won or lost. her first campaign appearance she competed in iowa and won her participation ribbon. what will she say? >> i love a good participation ribbon. >> plus, republicans right now swarming new hampshire in a race that's tighter than ever. did donald trump's debate boycott hurt him in iowa. and can marco rubio clear the establishment lane now? be good. text mom. boys have been really good today. send. let's get mark his own cell phone. nice. send. brad could use a new bike. send.

>> in an election cycle not short on drama and surprises, last night did not disappoint. cruz came out on top, beating donald trump by four points. and marco rubio in arguably the biggest win of the night, coming within one point of trump in the same. he also has the same number on delegat delegates. >> aman da carpenter just
screamed at the screen somewhere. it's not just that, but why. we're taking a close look at the entrabs po entrance poll numbers. what are you seeing? >> i see a couple of anchors getting giddy over politics. i see evangelicals here. the evangelicals were really in a quandary. a lot of them liked the firy message of donald trump. they liked the celebrity. they liked the decisivenessness about what he said, but they were uneasy from a believes standpoint. cruz kept saying i'm your guy. i'm the crtrue conservative. i match your values. and ultimately they ploobelieve. 33 for cruz. i will point out that rubio didn't do badly with this group. when you move to another part that made a difference were the early deciders versus the late deciders. one of the reasons that trump
came burning in strongly was there was a sense among the early deciders that they were really picking between him and cruz and all the other people were in the also run category. at that time among early deciders, rubio was down 19%. early deciders chose him. when you got to the people who decided close to the election, rubio rose to the top with people saying they wanted him to be their person if they decided late, which, again, probably speaks so some second thoughts about donald trump. and then you get to what may be one of the most telling numbers of the night. it's a small number, but it's one that really matters for republicans all over this country. for eight years many republicans have been just hungry, hungry to take back the white house. and in the end last night, more of the iowa caucus goers on the republican side thought that marco rubio could actually win
the general election than any other candidate. that may be one of the real driving forces that made him have such a great showing last night compared to what people expected. >> really fascinating look at the numbers. tom, thanks so much. great job overnight at the caucuses. working hard as the people were casting their votes. we want to talk more about this from a former communications director for ted cruz. we have wben carson's former campaign manager, and then doug hide. barry, you're advising the trump campaign. we have a new tweet. i was told i could not do well in iowa. i spent very little there, a fraction of cruz and rubio. came in a strong second. great honor. he's spinning it now, but it clearly didn't end how he wanted
it to. what next? >> in the end, the difference is eight delegates versus seven delegates. i don't think in the end it really means much. the story this morning, though, about the carson/cruz feud over some -- what appear to be dirty tricks by the cruz campaign to steal votes and delegates away from carson hurt ted down the road. christians don't like dirty tricks. >> do you think this was dirty? this gets to ben carson's campaign saying that he's going to be heading back to florida. they need to do some laundry that came out later. a lot of people talked about that, and cruz's campaign jumped and ran with it. you think that's dirty tricks? >> they said he was getting out. and they told precinct captains to say that at the meetings and they did, and i heard this morning that mrs. carson was at one of them where they said
that. you know, i think that it was -- yeah, it was a dirty trick. it's an old political trick, but it's dirty. >> it's hard to imagine that making up the difference of 4% in the polls. amanda, respond to that if you see fit, and declare victory if you see fit. cruz just won the iowa caucuses. ted cruz just got more votes than anyone in iowa caucus history on the republican side. the floor is yours. >> yeah. he has done the biggest story coming out of this is that ted cruz won more votes than any other iowa caucus runner in history. trying to say he played dirty tricks, the only dirty trick that happened was ben carson didn't have enough clean clothes. cruz cannot sabotage the carson campaign when his campaign is sabotaging it for him. this has been consistent. carson was polling 10 % in the poll. that's where he finished. it's remarkable that cruz was able to finish with a four point
lead, scarily, accurately predicted by his campaign which really worried me in the beginning. turns out they were right, without needing the 9% from carson. this is kind of sad to see this happening. nobody from the campaign -- if there's evidence that they did this, i would like to look at it, but everything played out as kp expected. carson ran about 9%. he's not going to new hampshire. >> that's not true. >> he will go to south carolina and he has more cash on hand than anyone else in the field. $19 million. that's a big deal going to the next early states. >> doug, maybe what didn't happened as planned and rubio's campaign is happy is his very strong place, they would say winning finish, in the iowa caucus. >> you're going to upset amanda. >> i'm waiting for her to yell at me. i want her to yell at me today. i'm kidding. >> i just want to yell at people. >> i know you don't.
>> is marco rubio now the establishment? is he clearing the lane now? what does he do with this going forward? let's look ahead. >> it's obviously a big momentum for rubio. they played the expectations game perfectly. they timed things perfectly. peaked perfectly. it was a big night for rubio. he got out on television early. if you were an east coast viewer watching the returns, rubio wasn't only the first person you saw. he might have been the only person you saw speak that night. he might have turned the television off if you're a republican caucus goer. he proved that organization is king in iowa. cruz had an awesome organization. everywhere you went you saw it. and we also saw donald trump had no organization. that clearly affected him. one of the things that i would hear time after time last night was people would go to the caucus site and there was no person there to make the case for trump. he didn't have somebody making the last case, the last time you
hear something before voting. there was nobody there for trump. kroou cruz had it everywhere. trump fading in the past few days with organization making that case, and really effective ads by cruz and others against trump hurt him last night. >> barry, from your view, is there such a thing as marco momentum. he came in the same place as ho o o'malley but with a different number. losing is not something donald trump does well. >> i think in new hampshire, it's like game over again. we start all over again. you have chris christie and john kasich who have been working in the state hard. jeb bush spent a lot of money in iowa. he spent more money in new hampshire. we'll see if marco momentum helps in new hampshire. we have this debate this
weekend. i mean, whether or not cruz did a dirty trick or not, what he does have now is ben carson is very angry with him, and that could hurt him. >> ben carson angry? let's figure out what that looks like. i haven't seen that, and what that means for him. you mentioned chris christie. this is new sound from him this morning in new hampshire where he spent a whole lot of time, and who he clearly wants to take on now. one marco rubio. listen. >> you know me. unlike some of the other campaigns, i'm not the boy in the bubble. we know who that is who never answers your questions and is scripted and controlled because he can't answer your questions. when rubio gets here, the boy in the bubble, i hope you ask him some questions, because it's time for him to start answering questions. >> he says we need to get the boy out of the bubble. it's on in new hampshire. >> well, look, obviously that's
one of everybody's favorite "seinfeld" episodes, but it shows the real momentum marco rubio has coming out of iowa. that was a big night for him. they started early in new hampshire. obviously cruz has a lot to talk about. he's going to focus more on south carolina. in new hampshire kwlrks, a big the story is rubio. trump is hurting right now. we know he had a bad night last night, because he gave the most undonald trump speech last night. and he's been quiet on twitter until a few minutes ago. >> marco has a difficult problem coming up in new hampshire. not only is he going to be savaged by everyone else in the establishment lane. but he has to find a way to confront donald trump. cruz has shown he can take down donald trump. marco has to show he can take down donald trump or the establish. or both.
that's a hard problem to face. that's what we'll see him do in new hampshire, potentially. >> thank you to you all. great to have you here. >> on the subject of the establishment, we'll check in with the establishment. a key former u.s. senator. he is going to weigh in on his support for marco rubio. he's going to talk about what he thinks of ted cruz. he is going to talk about the overall situation there. >> the support for john kasich in new hampshire. >> kasich. coming up for us, hillary clinton getting ready to speak live in new hampshire as questions remain over to actually won in iowa. we're going to hear what she has to say on this fine morning after iowa as everyone looks at new hampshire. that's ahead.

all right. happening now, over time in iowa. take a look at where things stand in the democratic side of the iowa caucuses race. there it is. 49 .8% for hillary clinton. 49.6% for bernie sanders. virtually nothing separated them. cnn has not declared a winner at this point, despite the tiny, maybe sort of slight edge there for hillary clinton. >> tiny. joining us to discuss that and the clinton campaign strategy going on, the democratic poller the, joel benson. great to see you. late night for you. early morning for you. cnn has not called this race in iowa quite yet. hillary clinton, you guys say you have won. explain it to us. >> well, it's pretty clear.
the measure of success in these caucuses, they're intricate, but it comes down to the state delegate equivalents. there's a narrow lead there. delegates to the national convention. we've won 23 out of 44. that's a majority. we have won the caucuses. that's what matters. who is going to the convention, eventually, with more delegates than the other person. look, i think we can debate the enti intricacies of the caucus. they win it by winning more state delegates than the other and more delegates to the national convention than the other and that's what hillary clinton did. >> the sanders campaign says it wants the count sheets. it has some questions about the process. they don't feel 100% solid on
it. what would you say? >> i think the day before, we heard them say they had the complete confidence in the iowa democratic party. campaigns have done this in the past. years back, i believe one campaign or the other does that. i think at the end of the day, the numbers aren't going to change. i think we've won the caucuses. i think they're trying to not just run out the clock. they're trying to keep the clock running. time has expired, and they lost. they lost a close race. they ran a great campaign. so did we. they talked about how they were going to win if turnout was 175,000. they did that, and they came up a little short. we're in new hampshire, hillary clinton is in new hampshire. we're going to be campaigning here. we know this is in his backyard n. it's going to be a strong state for him. we're going to fight to earn every vote. hillary clinton came here eight years ago. she showed people her tenacity. the strength of what she brings
to the table as a president to make a difference in their lives. and kate and john, i should share with you some interesting stuff. last night, from the entrance polls, among people who said that the economy and jobs are the most important issue, hillary clinton defeated sanders by about 10 points. on health care, about 30 % of the people said it was the most important issue. it happens to be his signature issue. she defeated him by about 20 points. we feel good about making the case in new hampshire about who has what it takes to make a real difference that will improve people's lives. >> and joel, you mentioned the entrance polls. there are also other numbers that could mean a lot going forward. on the issue of who is honest and trustworthy, sanders wins. 83 to 10. first time caucus voters and first time voters, sanders wins. on young voters, who are key, sanders wins big on that. what do you learn from that?
how do you fight that going forward? >> well, i think we have to keep making our argument to young people who are looking for better paying jobs in the economy and who has a better plan to do that. who has a better plan to get them out from under college debt when they're working that first job. to working parents who are worried about the education of their children and their future. we've had a lot more to say about that. and who is really going to be able to deliver the results to get those things done. i will say, kate, that on the issues i describe to you, those two alone were most important to two-thirds of the electorate. and she won double digit pretty much leads among both of those people. if you throw in terrorism as an issue, she really won big, and you're over two-thirds of the electorate on the issues they thought were most important, they voted for her more. we think we're in a good position to make those arguments in new hampshire. it will be a tough fight to the
end. always competitive in these states. also always a state that's been favorable to people who are from new england. they've typically done pretty well here. but we're not giving up the fight here at all. we feel like we're ready for a week of foreign debate and making the case to people here in new hampshire. >> we have to let you go, but i always wonder on nights like this, level with us. how nervous with you at 1:00 when this thing was still not called, when it was changing every minute, and was this just how you planned it? >> um, you know, you're a little bit nervous, but we're getting a lot of data just has ever other campaign is. you have models to model out and you know where you're winning and trailing and hitting your numbers. we were very confident late in the game. it gets a little edgy, you're double and triple checking. we were confident we'd eke out the narrow win. that's what we're thrilled with given the size of the turnout
which should have been a sanders night. they said they were going to win if it got to 175,000, and they didn't. >> great to see you, joel. >> thank you. >> programming note. first of all, hillary clinton is about to talk. we'll take you live when it happens. second, hillary clinton will be joining wolf blitzer live at 1:30 p.m. eastern time. she's going to talk about the situation iowa. she's going to respond to the sanders camp saying they want to check the count sheets. she'll tell us her next step in this campaign. down by more than 20 points in new hampshire. >> and even before that happens, hillary clinton will be speaking live in new hampshire. we'll see how she reacts to questions surrounding what is still unfinished business, over even though others say it's finished in iowa. >> other people in new hampshire speaking right now. one republican candidate who needs new hampshire, chris christie. he has received a big endorsement there, and right now
he's going after his rivals pretty hard. we'll go to his town hall, live. thousands of people came out today to run the race for retirement. so we asked them... are you completely prepared for retirement? okay, mostly prepared? could you save 1% more of your income? it doesn't sound like much, but saving an additional 1% now, could make a big difference over time. i'm going to be even better about saving. you can do it, it helps in the long run. prudential bring your challenges do you sign invoices likeour fathey're autographs?en, then you might be gearcentric. right now, get 25% off all tul® brand pens and pencils! office depot officemax. gear up for great®. ♪ ♪

the caucuses were happening in iowa, and jeb bush had moved onto new hampshire where you see him talking there live right now. trying to make his case to the voters there. >> new hampshire voters, reset elections. that's what you do. i know you will not let this country down, because the reset has started as of tonight. and i'm going to be here for the next eight days asking for your vote. if you're on board, i hope you'll get five of your family members or friends to sign up to be all in for jeb, and on next
tuesday, we're going to surprise the world. >> that was jeb last night. him speaking again this morning. athena jones in new hampshire with the bush campaign. good morning, athena. >> reporter: good morning. bush has been here since last night speaking even before the iowa caucuses began trying to make the case in new hampshire that he is the candidate sho who should be nominated because he's the only one with a proven record. he says congratulations to cruz. cruz and raubio, the two senatos to emerge in strong positions. they can speak, but they don't have the kind of record he does. that's the case he's making to this audience here. quite a few of people, young and old. a lot of voters here are undecided based on my informal polling. he's fighting for their vote. as you heard him say at the beginning of the intro, he
believes this is a state that can reset the race. the voter profile is different than iowa. not many evangelical voters. i asked what does it mean to surprise folks. lindsey graham said it would mean finishing third or fourth. a bush campaign official said he could finish in fourth or fifth place. the goal is to con vibs voters to come to his side. new hampshire is a state where people pick in the final days. bush will do a hard push this next week. >> athena jones with jeb bush there. we want to talk more about the governors trying to get in the game perhaps after skipping iowa. joining us now is the chairman of john kasich's campaign. thank you for being with us. >> you bet. great to be here. >> governor kasich has put all his eggs in the new hampshire basket. that's safe to say at this
point. what does he need to do now? there has been so much focus on iowa. all these guys coming out of iowa. if governor said he needs to finish first among the governors. you can do that and finish fourth. can he survive that? >> well, look. iowa doesn't really matter to new hampshire, traditionally. it's a totally different ball game. it's not all the eggs in new hampshire for kasich. we have midwestern states that are great opportunities for him because he has a great record in ohio balancing the budget and cutting taxes. over the last couple weeks, we've been polling on average in second place. if you average the online polls at rcp, we're in great position. the only real news coming out of iowa, i think is that donald trump badly underperformed the polling. he's beatable. that makes new hampshire wide open, and i think john kasich because of his record on fiscal issues because of his success as
a governor and a fact that he's done it before and will do it again, we have a great chance to pick up undecided voters in the last week and surprise everyone in new hampshire. >> what does marco rubio's strong finish -- you said donald trump is beatable. what does rubio's strong finish mean for kasich in new hampshire? >> nothing really. success in iowa might pick you up delegates, but it's a different contest not just from new hampshire but from primaries around the country. we have a broad republican electorate that will come out in new hampshire. conservatives, undeclareds across the board. they're not focussed on evangelical issues like in iowa, but fiscal conservetism, cutting taxes, turning around the economy, rolling back regulations to get
>> he created 400,000 private sector jobs and took an $8 billion deficit and turned it into a dmrars 2 billion surplus while cutting taxes. that's the kind of leadership, no nonsense leadership and effective leadership that the country wants and that resonates in new hampshire. look, that's why john kasich has done so well so far in new hampshire even though he started later than everyone else. we've had well over 80 town hall meetings on our way to 100 campaigning town to town and person to person. >> great to be with you. >> moments now hillary clinton will speak in her first event in new hampshire after the iowa caucuses. she's got a warm-up act. you might recognize him. president of the wraits bill
clinton speaking to voters there. we'll bring you this event right after this. ♪jake reese, "day to feel alive"♪ ♪jake reese, "day to feel alive"♪ i drive to the hoop. i drive a racecar. i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all have in common. we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that
blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto®. hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us.
now, folks. you see right there, two events ongoing right now. bill clinton speaking on -- i know it's so hard. speaking before his wife, hillary clinton, and you have chris christie on the other side speaking to voters there trying to win over their support. bill clinton, the cliff hang ner iowa, still remains, though, john. >> let's listen in to see if he talks about that. bill clinton in nashvil. >> what her group said is -- but her instinct was what can i do right now to make it better? so, look, next month will mark the 45th year since i met hillary. when i met her, i was amazed at how she started to grow into things and make something good
happen. taking american teenagers out of prisons where they've been held together. our bringing our state into its very first prekindergarten program. all the way from israel. >> i heard it make it in iowa saying there is no change that he has seen in his life that measures up to hillary clinton. she can bring change. that's the message he clearly wants to send. very curious to hear what she says. >> our coverage will be right back. stay with us.
