3:14 am
marco rubio has achieved in four years in the united states senate. it doesn't even have to be a passed bill. >> the bottom line is, there isn't a lot of accomplishments and i don't think it's a fair question. >> reporter: rubio down played santorum's comments. >> i wouldn't expect him to be familiar with my record. >> we're electing a president of the united states. >> reporter: jeb bush has made an issue of rubio's lack of experience all week. today the super pac supporting bush released it a tv ad. >> i know jeb. i know his good heart and strong backbone. >> reporter: scott, top republicans here say trump can win without the organization that ted cruz, john kasich and jeb bush have devoted to new hampshire. speaking of jeb bush, he finished sixth in iowa, and he's at 10% in new hampshire. well, today, norah o'donnell

3:16 am
classified information, as did ten e-mails from the personal accounts of top aides to his successor, condoleezza rice. >> most of them i think are pretty benign. >> reporter: like clinton, powell exclusively used a personal account as secretary of state, though he e-mailed far less often. in a statement today he said the the two e-mails in question were -- the clinton campaign happily sided with him. press secretary brian fallon. >> this is an example of over- classification run amok. >> reporter: the state department announced last week that 22 of clinton's e-mails which sat on her private server for years are being reclassified as top secret, one of the highest levels of classification, higher than the secret and confidential designations given to the powell and rice e-mails. more than 1,500 clinton e-mails
3:17 am
have already been put in those categories. isn't there a big difference between an e-mail or two being classified as confidential and 22 e-mails being classified as top secret? >> these e-mails that have been judged top secret are completely wrong. we want them released. let the public see them. >> reporter: the fbi is still looking into clinton's use of a private server, but, scott, the clinton campaign views this as a rare positive development in a year-long controversy. >> nancy cordes with the clinton campaign. let's get these dayquil liquid gels and go. but these liquid gels are new. mucinex fast max. it's the same difference. this one is max strength and fights mucus. mucinex fast max. the only cold and flu liquid gel that's max-strength and fights mucus. let's end this. ♪ (cell phone rings) where are you? well the squirrels are back in the attic. mom? your dad won't call an exterminator...

3:23 am
has really embarked upon elite status in nba history. and i'm not too proud to ask from lebron to, you know, michael jordan, to steph curry or even yourself that i need help. you know what i'm saying? i'm not perfect. anything that you can tell me, anything that anyone else can tell me that may help me in my growth, i want to hear it. >> reporter: when they signed you to that contract, they said it was because they felt you could get them to the promised land. you're like moses now. you're at the doorstep. will you be joshua and take them into the promised land is the question? >> i'm hoping. i'm hoping. i can't promise anything. i can tell you this: i there's going to be a person out there on super bowl sunday prepared and living the dream. >> and this evening j.b. is in super bowl city in san francisco. i wonder, cam newton gets a lot of flack for his celebrating after touchdowns. what does he make of that? >> you know, scott, he's quite
3:24 am
puzzled by the extent of the reaction to his celebrations on the field. it is atypical for a quarterback to be quite so demonstrative, but he'll be first to tell you, enthusiasm is what has gotten him to this point. as a matter of fact, my high school coach says nothing great is every accomplished without enthusiasm. he's embracing it. they're at the doorstep of a super bowl championship. >> well, a lot of enthusiasm for the game this weekend. james brown, thank you very much. and you can see j.b.'s full interview with cam newton on "60 minutes sports." that's tuesday night on showtime. well, if you were anywhere near a dance floor in the '70s and '80s you know the music of maurice white. ♪ do you remember >> he was the founder and leader of earth, wind, and fire. their mix of soul, jazz, funk and disco sold more than 90 million albums and won a grammy for white's "got to get you into my life." maurice white has died of

buffalo bills made history in hiring the first full-time female coach. >> how do you get something going offensively? >> reporter: tracy wilson is the lead sideline reporter for cbs sports. women never get a chance the play football. you just watch it from afar. >> reporter: she's loved football ever since she wore pigtails. when did women say, hey, i want in? >> that's a good question. i think nfl has made a big push, whether it's breast cancer awareness month, what they sell in the stores of tailored jerseys, the commercials you see on tv. ♪ you don't own me >> reporter: madison avenue is taking note. last year 54 million women watched the super bowl. >> finally nfl women's apparel fit for you. >> reporter: suzanne johnson, wife of jets' owner woody johnson, is a fashion ambassador for the nfl, where women's merchandise is the fastest growing sector with sales increasing more than 20% a year.
3:29 am
what do women bring to the sport that men don't? >> the woman is the glue that holds the whole family together. the woman makes most of the decisions. and that includes purchasing power. >> reporter: so while the men may score the winning touchdown this super bowl sunday, women are fast becoming football's most valuable players. michelle miller, cbs news, san francisco. and that's the "overnight news" for this friday. for some of you, the news continues. for others, check back with us a little lit baiter for the morning news and "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new york city, i'm scott pelley. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com
3:30 am
this is the "cbs overnight news." >> welcome to the "overnight news." i'm anna warner. there's just four days to go until new hampshire holds its first in the nation primary. and a new poll shows bernie sanders and donald trump with commanding leads. for the republicans, trump has the support of 36% of likely voters, followed by marco rubio with 15%, and iowa winner ted cruz at 14%. for the democrats, bernie sanders is leading hillary clinton 58% to 36%. sanders and clinton held a debate last night in new hampshire. here's some of what they had to say. >> but the numbers just don't add up from what senator sanders has been proposing. that's why all of the independent experts, all of the
3:31 am
editorial boards that have vetted both of us have concluded it is just not achievable. let's go down a path where we can tell people what we will do, a progressive is someone who makes progress. that's what i intend to do. >> thank you, secretary. senator sanders, just explain how you spent nearly two decades in congress and haven't gotten any of these things past. >> i haven't quite run for president before. [ laughter ] [ applause ] let's teal with some of the comments that secretary clinton made. sometimes there's a lot of drama here. i've known secretary clinton for 25 years and respect her very much. here is the issue. every major country on earth, whether it's the uk, whether it's france, whether it's canada, has managed to provide
3:32 am
health care to all people as a right, and they are spending significantly less per capita on health care than we are. so i do not accept the belief that the united states of america can't do that. i do not accept the belief that the united states of america and our government can't stand up to the rip-offs of the pharmaceutical industry which charge us by far the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. number two, in the economy today, everybody understands that we need a well-educated workforce. this is 2016. when we talk about public education, it can no longer be k-12th grade. i do believe that public colleges and universities should be tuition free. how do we pay for that? it's an expensive proposition. i do believe we should lower student debt in this country.
3:33 am
we pay for it in my view by a tax on wall street speculation. the middle class bailed out wall street in their time of need. now it is wall street's time to help the middle class. >> look, i've just got to jump in here, because honestly, senator sanders is the only person who i think would characterize me a woman running to be the first woman president as exemplifying the establishment. [ applause ] and i've got to tell you that it is -- it is really quite -- it's really quite amusing to me. people support me because they know me. they know my life's work. they have worked with me and many have also worked with senator sanders. at the end of the day, they endorse me because they know i can get things done. i am not going to make promises i can't keep. i am not going to talk about big
3:34 am
ideas like single payer and then not level with people about how much it will cost. a respected health economist said these plans would cost $1 trillion more a year. i'm not going to tell people that i will raise your incomes and not your taxes, and not mean it. because i don't want to see the kind of struggle that the middle class is going through exemplified by these promises that would raise taxes and make it much more difficult for many, many americans to get ahead and stay ahead. that is not my agenda. >> senator sanders, you have 30 seconds to respond. [ applause ] >> what being part of the establishment is, in the past quarter having a super pac that raised $15 million from wall street. that throughout one's life raised a lot of money from drug companies and other special interests.
3:35 am
to my mind, if we do not get a handle on money in politics, and the degree to which big money controls the political process in this country, nobody is going to bring about the changes that is needed in this country for the middle class and working families. >> yeah, but i think it's fair to really ask what's behind that comment. you know, senator sanders has said he wants to run a positive campaign. i've tried to keep my disagreements over issues as it should be. but time and time again, by insinuation, there is this attack that he is putting forth, which really comes down to, you know, anybody whoever took donations or speaking fees from any interest group has to be bought. and i just absolutely reject
3:36 am
that, senator. and i really don't think these kinds of attacks by insinuation are worthy of you. and enough is enough. if you've got something to say, say it directly but you will not find that i ever changed a view or a vote because of any donation that i ever received. and i have stood up and i have represented my constituents to the best of my ability and i'm very proud of that. so i think it's time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent weeks -- [ crowd booing ] -- and let's talk about the issues that divide us -- >> let's talk about the issues. >> we both agree with campaign finance reform -- >> let's talk about issues. let's talk about why, in the
3:37 am
1990s, wall street got de-regulated. did it have anything to do with the fact that wall street provided to spend billions of dollars on lobbying and campaign contributions? well, some people might think, yeah, that had some influence. let's ask why it is that we pay by far the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs and your medicine can be doubled tomorrow and there's nothing that the government can do to stop it. do you think it has anything to do with the huge amounts of campaign contributions and lobbying from the fossil fuel industry? let's talk about climate change. do you think there is a reason why not one republican has the guts to recognize that climate change is real and that we need to transform our energy system? do you think it has anything to do with the koch brothers and exxonmobil pouring money into the political system?

below $30 a barrel. it's all good, right? one big boost to the economy. what does this symbolize? >> the crash. >> reporter: well, not so fast. in west texas, $30 a barrel oil means a deepening economic disaster. what is this? >> it's a drilling contractor's yard. >> reporter: during the boom, what would this have looked strike >> empty, completely empty. >> reporter: to mike rasco, this parking lot for drilling rigs symbolizes the american oil and gas industry grog broke. in just the last year, more than 900 rigs were idled. the u.s. total down 60%. so each one of these rigs represents how many unemployed people? >> i would say a thousand each. >> reporter: each one? >> absolutely. >> reporter: how many do you think are sitting here? >> we quit counting when they

3:43 am
fell. in the past, opec has cut production in response. not this time. >> before the oil price collapse, the assumption is that opec would cut production. but the key oil producers in the gulf, saudi arabia and the other gulf states, said we're not going to cut unless other people cut. >> reporter: daniel yergen is vice chairman of ihs, an international information company. and the pulitzer prize winning author of "the prize, a history of oil." >> saudi arabia's basic strategy is to maintain its market share in the global oil market, and that's been the starting point for them. >> reporter: at the expense of everybody else? >> yes. >> reporter: so began a huge game of chicken. with saudi arabia and its opec partners pumping full blast. russia, too. and the united states.
3:44 am
you've heard of fracking? pumping water into shale formations to free hard-to-get at oil and gas. well, fracking meant that the united states suddenly was producing a lot more oil. so much that for the first time in 40 years, we're exporting it. >> u.s. oil production went from 5 million barrels a day in 2008 to 9.7 million barrels a day in april of 2015. in other words, u.s. oil production almost doubled in a matter of just a few years. >> reporter: during the good years, midland and odessa, texas turned into boom towns. same story in williston, north dakota. based on $100 a barrel oil, entrepreneurs borrowed billions of dollars to buy into the bonanza. workers flocked to the oil patch. >> i heard about all this big money.
3:45 am
so i thought i could get a little piece of that pie, i suppose. >> reporter: so many they had to live in trailer camps. on cots in church halls. then the price crashed, thanks in large part to china's slowing economy. meanwhile, every day the world is producing something like a million and a half more barrels of oil than it needs. there's an ocean of it out there. in massive storage tanks. and right now, at least 100 million barrels are sitting in tankers, parked at sea. mike rasco just wants to hang on to his home. he never lived lavishly, even when he could have, so he could weather the bad times. this is the fourth bust he's lived through. he knows it will end. as he looks for work every day,
