7:08 am
in about three weeks. that attack on bill clinton linking him to bill cosby, anthony weiner, clinton not responding but could that blunt the democrats's hope to make this war on women an issue in the general election? >> well, i think it does two things. first ihink it helps donald trump in the republican primary because the republicans don't like bill clinto or hillary clinton so i think it helps him there. but i think the second thing it does more than a scandal it reinforces that these are the candidates of the past. that hillary clinton is the candidate of the past a as you know, gegeorge, in any election people want to vote future and not the past and if they can do that, the republicans can do that to the clintons then they're going to be a leg up in the general election next year. much. a lot more on "this week" including our guest marco rubio. >> we'll be watching. the candidates keeping their eye on wall street after the worst start to the year ever. linsey davis is at the new york

7:10 am
be a capitalist nation with their measures and have so-called circuit breakers put into place and would trigger and shut down the markets if there was a precipitous fall. twice this week the circuit breakers shut everything down to give a pause but guess what, it worked in the complete opposite direction. it incited panic and the markets started to fall so this is -- this is a bizarre bavior and too much heavy-handed interinvestigation on behalf of the chinese. >> a ltle bit of panic here, especially when it comes to american 401(k)s. the average american 401(k) has what's your advice. >> well, the advice is don open your envelopes for this month. it's been angly first opening as you just heard. it's the worst opening for t seen. so, what you want to do is justt worry. now, why should people think thathat happens in china affects us? it's's not like vegas, what stays in vegas, it's now affecting us as a global markrket. any companyin that have a u.s.
