todd: some of the biggest sparks flew on the issue of readyiness to be president. marco rubio took a lot of eat especially from are chris christie and jeb bush. >> you have not be held in a decision where you are held accountable. >> it's not what you did but how it worked out, they have been downgraded nine times in their credit rating. >> leadership, you learn it by doing it. it's not something you just go up and on the job do it. todd: the debate turned to illegal immigration with ted cruz offering a solution straight out of donald trump's playbook. >> we're going to build a wall, triple the border control. we're going to increase and since donald enjoyed that, i will simply say i have somebody in mind to build it. todd: trump got booed as he and bush clashed on eminent domain. >> let me talk, quiet. the amount of time --
repeal obama care and pledged that all americans will have health care coverage. when the topic turned to terrorism, he made no apologies if he would bring back water boarding? >> i would bring back water boarding and i would bring back a hell of a lot worse than water boarding. todd: right now the candidates are making their way to the spin room. the only candidate not here tonight, carly chose low poll numbers disqualified her from being in this debate tonight. reporting live in manchester, todd kazakiewich, wcvb newscenter 5. reid: every candidate on the debate stage tonight had much to gain and lose. now that the lights have been turned out, who will take advantage of the nationally televised event. for some insight into that, we turn into republican political analyst, pat griffin. good to have you tonight. we'll start with the frontrunner donald trump, he has a comfortable double-digit lead heading into tonight's debate. he seemed very comfortable
the brash billionaire we have seen over the last several weeks. pat: yeah, i thought he played it safe when he started. that's kind of not where he went. donald trump came in tonight as the frontrunner, but he was not really someone who sort of stuck with that. he went back to the old donald trump. look tonight was a night good the governors. we know where everybody else is. i don't think there is much doubt about who lost this debate tonight. i think marco rubio had a tough night. chris christie had a good night. john kasich had a good night and jeb bush had a good night. reid: let's talk about the new rubio. he did take advantage and had a of course going back to saying that there he goes again. speech. pat: that's one of the problems. marco rubio is very smart. he is very smooth but the idea
you're memorizing your lines, you cannot lead on your own, that was done very effectively by governor christi tonight. you could see a little flop sweat on marco rubio's brow. it was a tough night for him. reid: pat, people expected marco rubio to come out better iowa. this has opened up, and people were saying earlier, look, if jeb bush doesn't do well, he is probably not going to make it does this save him now that marco rubio did not have a particularly good debate night? pat: look everything in politics is about timing and everything in the new hampshire primary is about timing. i think what is happening is people in this race are starting to peak at the right time. we're going to find out where this all goes. we're in the chute politically right now. people are making up their minds. i guarantee you we'll be in for a surprise on tuesday, it means tickets out of new hampshire, a
i can't tell you which one tonight, but tonight was the night for the governors. clearly a whole new trend in this race. reid: it opens up the field and on to south carolina, pat, which of course it becomes that much more important, pat griffin, republican political strategist, thank you for your great insight tonight. pat: thank you. >> texas senator ted cruz. pam: the debate got off to just a bit of a rocky start. dr. ben carson apparently not hearing his name called by the moderators, donald trump also not immediately taking to the stage. massachusetts governor charlie baker is letting people know who he is backing for president. governor baker: supporting the right guy for president of the united states, chris christie. pam: he endorsed the new jersey governor today in a rally in

a nearby college. >> when i opened the door, the fire came rushing out at me. nicole: billy kelly described the rescue attempt as flames enter thed home. >> i ran down stairs to my mother, i know she can't walk. so i help her out of the house. nicole: with the help of a neighbor, kelly was able to carry his sick elderly mother out of the park street house, followed quickly by his father, but upstairs, a woman tenant remained trapped. >> i didn't know what to do. i ran up the back door there to try to help her, too, but it was just too much smoke and everything. nicole: firefighters would later find the body of the woman described to be in her 60's. >> after being able to knock the fire down, they did locate a victim who was found in the room of origin and she had succumbed to the conditions of the fire. nicole: the fire started in the living room, the same room found. i did speak with investigators

the unanswered question, what triggered the collapse. officials looking closely at the wind and snow conditions. >> how long do you think we can figure out exactly what happened? >> you know, i think you're going to have to give us a couple of weeks at least while we do some engineering calculations to go through the metal and how it failed. pam: officials say the operator tested negative for drugs and alcohol and has been cooperating with the investigation. a harvard grad was killed in the collapse. it could be several days before buildings whose pipes were crushed can have their water restored and before crews can repair the street. reid: the search for survivors of a midair collision that sent one plane plunking into the ocean near the port of los angeles has been called off. two men were onboard the plane that was seen on radar colliding with another aircraft flown by a 72-year-old woman yesterday afternoon. wreckage and the logbook from one of the planes has been found. and a sea lion pup being nursed back to health tonight after beaching itself inside of all

we started the month with 65 degrees as a high temperature. today was 35 degrees. get used to the cooler temperatures, we have been so far above normal, mother nature likes to even things out. that is happening this week. anything that melted, untreated surfaces is freezing up out there. under clear skies as we drop off 28 degrees and tomorrow we starts with lots of sunshine. there are some late day clouds moving in. we have a system coming up the coast, mild, plenty of melting tomorrow, 42 to 44 degrees for your high temperatures for tomorrow. let's talk about the storm coming up the coast. here is how the map looks at 11:00 monday morning. you see what happens. this is a big, big storm. you notice where it's at. it's a little too far offshore. if it is moving this way a little bit, we change the forecast dramatically. keep an eye on the forecast tomorrow if something happens.
snow as you head down toward the cape and parts of plymouth county. part two is forming and as it lifts, it wants to follow the same path, not as big or powerful and staying quite a bit offshore. more snow on tuesday. it's a 1-2 punch going on with this system as it works its way through. so when you add all of that talking about? one to three, in the boston area down to the south, two to four inches, closer to the storm, three to six. you get the idea. if the storm system shifted this way or this way a little bit, it will change the numbers dramatically. i got some new information in, a few moments ago, i'm kind of leaning towards the lower end of these numbers at this point. we'll keep you posted as we go through the forecast tomorrow. there is a winter storm watch out, it means keep an eye on the weather south from the city to the cape and the islands, and here is a wild card, ocean effect. the winds can be out of the northeast.
moisture in and we could have the bands set up. that would put us at the higher ends of the totals i was showing you. high tide comes in at 11:00 on monday. with the northeasterly wind, there may be pockets of minor flooding. not a major event, but pockets here or there. watch the winds, they will be strong monday morning. if you are at the coast inland, you won't notice it so much. tomorrow, 43 degrees, sunshine, a little bit of cloud cover and we talk about the system on monday. here is a timeline of what is going to happen. you notice how the clouds start rolling their way in and we talk about the snow just about after the morning commute. it's snowing off and on throughout the day, tapers off and we'll see most of our activity. tuesday, a little bit of light snow hanging around a bit. you notice we cool down and on thursday, a shot of cold air comes in here, perhaps some snow showers before even colder air finishes off the week.
and more like february-like weather. reid: we want to update you on a rescue mission in taiwan. pam: the effort to rebuild after that nation was hit by a devastating earthquake. reid: looking ahead to tuesday, you can download the app now for complete results including life streaming coverage and results as they come in.
reid: right now rescuers in taiwan finding signs of life in a building that was brought down after a massive earthquake. here is video of children being pulled from the rubble. rescuers have found signs of life from at least 29 trapped people. pam: the death toll is expected to rise. so far 18 are known killed. dramatic rescues happening
this after a powerful 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck taiwan overnight. rescue teams drilling through tons of rubble frantically working to pull out small children, the quake toppling large buildings including a high-rise apartment complex, and rescue workers digging through debris and climbing over stacks of concrete to multiple and pets trapped under mountains of debris. more than 100 people are still listed as
missing, nearly 500 people were also hurt in the quake. reid: bob is joining us to take a look at sports ahead. something they typically don't do? bob: at home, they have been struggling at home for a while, they're doing so well at the garden, things are looking good again.
there are those who
say we cannot defeat a corrupt political system and fix a rigged economy. but i believe we need to lift our vision above the obstacles in place v and look to the american horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good job is not a wish, but a reality.
is paid to all. t an america where after a
lifetime of labor, t there is time for rest and grandchildren. r a nation that defends our people and our values, r but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. v i know we can create that america p if we listen to our conscience and our hearts r and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message,
>> now sportscenter 5 with bob halloran. bob: maybe the magic is back at the garden. not long ago, both the bruins and celtics had losing records at home. now the c's have won six in a row there including last night's buzzer-beater and the b's win with a marchand penalty shot in overtime. bruins score first, erickson is wide open and the first goal in nine games, welcome back. sabres even it up in
the second period. rookie sam reinhardt, 14th goal of the year, 1-1. three-on-three. brad marchand is what the refs called a breakaway opportunity. he sets up the penalty shot. here is the game winner.
his stick, the penalty shot, he scores! bob: good looking goal on the backhand, that's nine goals in nine games for marchand, the bruins win 2-1 and host the kings on tuesday. ignoring the embarrassing scandal that led to their self-imposed postseason ban, rick pitino and the cardinals are playing the victim card. victim number one of the self-proclaimed victims, the boston college eagles. the eagles are now 0-10 in the a.c.c., never had a chance in this one. louisville scored 19 of the game's first 21 points and built on
that lead. the eagles fall 79-47. it gets harder for the eagles, they host second ranked north carolina on tuesday. proving once again that it is so much better to be an inductee than induct tape. there are eight new members of
tony dungy and kenny stabler and brett favre. he played for 20 years and retired with the most completions, attempts, yards and touchdowns and
threw an nfl record 336 interceptions. his lone super bowl victory came at the expense of the patriots 19 years ago. the induction ceremony is in august in can'ton, ohio. somewhat surprising to learn that the broncos only have four hall of famers despite in appearing in their eighth super bowl tomorrow. today, the players have a picture of themselves raising the lombardi trophy. similar opportunity for the panthers and they walked the field with the nfl m.v.p. cam tonight. tom brady received one lousy vote. newton is the sixth player to nfl m.v.p. tomorrow he hopes to win the m.v.p. von miller, t.j. ward of the
fines $23,000 for penalties against the patriots in the a.f.c. championship game. they made twice that as a bonus for winning the game and could make another
100 grand for winning the super bowl. phoenix waste management open where they do things a little bit differently, fashion choices and raucous voices. look at bubba watson on the famed 16th hole. he wants the crowd to make some noise. he is pumping them up and they're cheering him on. golf is usually quiet. that's how they talk. there is bubba with the great shot to set up par, but the shot of the day may be right here, john swings and splats the ball out on to the green. another fun day in scottsdale with a record crowd of 201,003 people. that's an awful lot of folks checking out the golf in phoenix. great day there and that's
reid: did you see the weather out there? mike w.: beautiful weather. pam: different than ours. mike w.: we'll get some nice melting tomorrow and add a little bit more to it on monday. right now looking like the heaviest is toward the cape and the islands. pam: thank you for joining us, the eyeopener team is here at
