7:03 am
him yesterday in iowa. the "new york post" quickly dubbed them "ladies and the trump." >> they will campaign together today in iowa and oklahoma. major garrett is in washington and looks at palin's decision to back trump while turning her back on former ally ted cruz. >> cruz needed palin in 2012 when he ran for the senate and would have loved to have her support now. trump has always been bigger than palin as a political nonconformist and reality tv star and now the resilient gop front-runner. >> no more pussy-footing around! >> reporter: sarah palin's endorsement brings energy to trump's campaign in iowa and deprives his closest rival ted cruz. palin is not the political force she once was. in part the tea party movement
7:04 am
she helped inspired has matured and moved on. at trump's side she proved capable of amplifying some familiar themes. >> are you ready for a commander in chief who will let our warriors do their job and kick is sis as? >> nor claims he is a phony conservative. >> well, trump and his -- uh, his trumpers are not conservative enough. my goodness gracious. what the heck would the establishment know about conservatism. >> reporter: palin endorsed trump for the senate in 2012. before last night events he took the blow in stride. >> sarah palin is fantastic. without her friendship and support i wouldn't be in the senate today, so regardless of what sarah decides to do in 2016 i will always remain a big fan of hers. >> reporter: cruz also fended off attacks from another
7:05 am
republican, long time iowa governor terry branstad. >> i think it would be a big mistake for iowa to support him. >> it is no surprise that the establishment is in full panic mode. >> reporter: cruz dismissed branstad as part of the problem. >> the washington cartel live on cronyism and it lives on making deals. >> reporter: cruz retained superior organizational strength in iowa and as the caucuses approach that strength is likely to prove as important, possibly more important than any one endorsement. in a moment out of his apprentice past, trump told his iowa director yesterday, "you better win, or you're fired." charlie? >> thanks, major. >> yes. republican strategist rick davis is with us. he was john mccain's manager in 2008. the senator became a republican nominee and chose sarah palin as his running mate. he is not attached to any candidate. what does this do to ted cruz?
7:06 am
>> i think it's a battle for sort of a dwindling carson vote. i think we have seen koors carsy number one in iowa and now slip to maybe three and maybe four. i think the percentage he is sitting on, both trump and cruz look at that like a dog salivating over a good, meaty bone. they want the people coming off carson on to their ballot and that is why the focus on evangelicals. i think what we saw yesterday between the visits to the liberty university and jerry falwell the nice things he said about donald trump to the sarah palin announcement was a real targeted effort to seek the evangelicals without having to talk the talk, he is walking the walk. >> is there a downside for him in sarah palin endorsing him? >> not in iowa. i think everyone else in the country people are scratching their heads when they wake up saying what is he thinking? i think he has made a bet if he can win iowa he has a shot at
7:07 am
sweeping the whole -- >> running the table? >> running the table. >> do you think that this ends up being a contested battle at the convention? >> yeah. . i honestly spent a lot of time looking at the delegates and who is positioned in these republican states. three are battling is out right now. the sort of outsider segment landed on donald trump and really happy with what they have got and about a third of the vote. then a third of the vote on movement conservatives. they sit squarely in there with ted cruz and they are not going anywhere right now. they are very loyal to cruz. then there is the establishment. that is another third to a little bit more. they are spread over five or six candidates. and so as that consolidates, and it probably will the first three or four states, you have three trains running down the track and if they continue to win at 30/30/30, i don't know how you get to a point where you have one person, you know, with the
7:08 am
necessary delegates to be the presumive nominee. >> not a good day for iowa. the governor came out against him and the headlines are with donald trump and sarah palin. >> you lose and win every day at a campaign in this stage down to the wire. a big win day for trump and big losing day for cruz. >> if trump pulls off iowa and new hampshire there and south carolina, it could be moving towards the nomination. >> well, in the old schedule, that was the case, right? because nothing stopped you. >> right. >> this time, there is a two-week period of time right after south carolina where it's all proportional primaries and everyone sort of gets spread out throughout the south and southeast. what happens is nobody really wins or lose ons. you just collect delegations. >> right. >> it is an opportunity to reset the race and if there is a juggerna juggernaut, i think you see people saying, wow, especially on the establishment side we have to have someone win florida the 15th of march and next big
7:09 am
winner take all state and they rally around either a rubio or a christie or a bush and say, we got to stop the trump movement. >> it's interesting to watch every single day. >> every day. >> we thank you for coming in today. >> thank you. the latest poll in new hampshire finds the democratic primary there is turning into no contest at all. bernie sanders leads hillary clinton by 27 points in that survey released yesterday. the first in the nation primaries less than three weeks away. but the vermont senator is trailing clinton in national polls. nancy cordes is covering sanders big surge in new hampshire. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. yes, 60-33 is an enormous lead. a trump-sized lead, you might say. the campaigns like to say they don't pay much attention to the polls but sanders was celebrating those numbers at each of his campaign events in iowa yesterday, saying that they prove he is a real contender. >> if you run into people and say i like what bernie stands for, but i think he can't win, please tell them that is really
7:10 am
not the case. >> reporter: the clinton campaign shot back in a statement saying, senator sanders is trying to make a case on elect ability based on meaningless polls. and they said sanders is gaining because republican groups are talking him up, tweeting about him because they would rather run against him than against clinton. naturally, ted cruz did say last night, he was asked about this, he would prefer to go up against sanders this clinton because he thinks a socialist would be easiest to beat. clinton, you'll recall, won in new hampshire in 2008 but wasn't going up against an opponent next door back then. sanders is from neighboring vermont and historically candidates from bordering states almost always win in new hampshire. >> thank you, nancy. breaking news. a terror attack on a university in pakistan. at least 20 people are dead. gunmen opened fire on students and staff early today on the

sample. so historically those have been restricted and people have been scared about sharing their data and hospitals say i don't want to sue the data because i can be sued and we have to change that. peple have to step up and say i want to be a part of the solution, not the problem. i want be to be part of the cure hopefully, myself but if not me for my children and grandchildren and here is my data. >> would the effort against cancer happen quicker if the federal government spent more money? >> i'm not sure it's a money issue as a collaboration issue. right now, there's so many different effort across the country. one here, one here, one here. if we all started to work together with a leader, i i think we are going to make staggering process. so i think biden stepping up, in a really amazing fashion, and saying this is my passion for the next decade, this is what i care about. i lost my son to this horrible disease and i got to see
8:37 am
firsthand, he said, that the inadequacies of our satisfactory and data doesn't help us. we can't transfer from one doctor to another. how barbaric some treatments are and use that emotion in myself to help others. i think that is powerful and we need it in our state. >> this marks the one-year anniversary that they have been in office. realistically what do you think they can get done in that time? >> i think start to put the framework together to free the data and we can be part of that solution. at the same time, they can work with regulatory agencies. the fda, some of the medicare services and work them to get things done quicker. we could develop one drug to treat cancer and fountain the f develop more drugs. he is starting to work with me and many other cancer doctors across the country to make a difference. >> david, the vice president paid you a compliment about your
8:38 am
ability to explain science. here is that video. >> you're speaking plainly, straightforwardly, that everybody can understand exactly why it's important in the examples you've given. >> so, david, coming out of -- go ahead. >> you know, it's a privilege to be here. when you have the vice president of the united states coming to a world forum and saying cancer is a disease that has suffered, not just in the united states but around the world and we are going to take a leadership role to ease the suffering and to be able to be on that panel was truly, you know, special to me and i think special to everybody there. >> thank you, david. >> the vice president coming and giving you a shout-out, david, that is pretty nice. we already know that that is true. good to see you. >> good to see you, dr. david agus in dabos, switzerland. sports writer mike

as a small business owner, here's one thing you can rely on: your business will change as it grows. whether it's new space, more employees, or better equipment, things have a way of moving fast. but if your network can't keep up, it can really slow you down. and that's not good for business. thankfully, a switch to the 100% fiber optic network of verizon fios is all it takes to keep everything moving in the right direction.
8:42 am
with fios you get 99.9% network reliability and the fastest wi-fi available, with uploads as fast as downloads. but you also get something more. a network that can move as fast as your business does. right now, upgrade to fios 50 meg or higher internet and phone and get $250 back. call or go online today. small business is better on a better network. ♪ we lost two of them games. i'm trying to get one with of them. try to walk out of here 1-3. this will be my third game here. >> one and two? >> you know what i mean. >> no, i don't! >> no, wait. you played two games and you add one, that means --
8:43 am
>> that's three games! >> yeah. but you said 1-3. >> if we win! >> one four three? >> that's what i meant. >> usc, baby! >> they must be really good friends! that is kyle lowery of the toronto raptors giving his teammate a hard lesson. he hopes to improve his games played in london but his math, he said it was a bit off. >> for more than 40 years mike lupica has covered will every sport and authored 22 sports theme knowledge for young adults. he sold five million copies of his book oip the extra yard" is his newest novel about an eighth grade boy who deals with challenges on and off the field. the book is published by a division of cbs. great to have you here. what happened to the other eight or nine books? i'm just kidding. >> really?
8:44 am
>> we have the playoffs. >> yeah. >> we have peyton manning and tom brady. break it down. >> the funny thing is you always hear about brady versus manning. i always thought about it as manning versus bill belichick. they are not guarding each other and not in the low post in basketball. interesting to watch peyton play now and to go to another sport, is like somebody who is a great fastball pitcher in baseball and now throwing melons and cantaloupe. he clearly can't throw the ball and he is getting by on guiel. the only advantage they have on sunday, i think, is that the game is in denver instead of foxborou foxborough. >> how about their defense? >> broncos defense, i believe, has been the most formidable in the sport this year. we saw what happened when brock osweiler was the quarterback against the patriots before and the denver broncos defense beat brady. it's hard to do that twice in the same year.
8:45 am
>> you're predicting the patriots? >> i do. only for my own twisted amusement. because the patriots make everybody so crazy, outside of, like, a six-state area in new england. so they are always being accused of something and i just love the fact that it makes most of the country this passionate. >> your twisted amusement is fun to watch. your latest column about the nfl coin toss and you're not a fan because? >> a billion dollar industry, the biggest we have ever had in sports in this country, often comes down to a flip of the coin. you tell me another place in sports -- then they don't use a real coin! >> the question whether it's flipped or not as we had this past weekend. >> all i know is that you can make a case that aaron rodgers might be the best player in football. two years in a row, because of a coin flip, he never gets to touch the ball in overtime. that is a bone-headed system. >> right. what would you replace it with? >> in the regular season,
8:46 am
charlie, i see why they have to keep the line moving to television. play until the game is resolved. certainly play an extra quarter. where do they have to be? nowhere. >> let's talk about your new book "the extra yard." >> look at the dedication to your agent. >> agent to the stars and me. >> it's about an eighth grader, teddy. what are some of the underlying themes in this book? >> norah, i got into this world because one year i took all of the kids who got cut in my town and started a team of my own and gave them a chance to give back. i didn't know what i was doing. my wife now says in retrospect, honey, you writing inside of the mind of a 12-year-old seems like pretty much a perfect fit! but if you start reading my book, you know i'm going to ask my main character to overcome something. teddy in this book has grown up without a father because of a divorce and his father lives on the other side of the country. you would think he would be thrilled when his father comes back into his life.
8:47 am
it's not that easy. this is a book that kind of tips the whole father/son and sports thing. >> you coached all of your kids? >> i tried not to screw them up but let me tell you something. these books are written in that spirit. there's not a time, norah, when i go by a field or a gym where i coached and wouldn't give up a zillion dollars to have one more friday night or saturday afternoon back. >> who is the audience for your books? >> oh, it starts in middle grade. we go from, like, 8 to 15. and the great thing is once i get them, they stay with me. i was telling gayle before the show today, i'll be out in public now and i'll see somebody who i know is a mom and coming towards me. i know they are not going to want to talk about my dopey newspaper column or tv. they are are going to tell me a story how i got their kids to want to read. then they will say, you probably get tired of hearing that. i said, not at all! >> mike, what is so good about the book in this particular
8:48 am
book, you have boys talking to each other. you never see boys talking to each other about their problems and their vulnerabilities. i think that is an important message to send to young boys. >> i have three sons and they were like that. i mean, our dinner table was, you know, sometimes sounded like a counseling session. people would say the kids in your book sound real. i think they ought to because it came out of the back seat of my car, our dinner table, sidelines, and locker rooms. >> do you want your kids to play football? >> man i tell you what, charlie. i would have to think long and hard about that. fortunately, my sons were all pacifists and his uniform never got dirty and my wife never had to wash it. >> bottom line, you have reservations? >> with cognitive difficulties of ex-players, how can you not? >> thank you, mike. >> should we mention the book one more time? >> yes! >> it's called "the extra yard" and on sale now.
