sunday i'm john dickerson. we begin with cam 2016 and former secretary of statenton who is fighting to close a double digit gap in the polls behind bernie sanders in new hampshire. she joins us from manchester.r name came up not surprisingly in the republican debate. senator marco rubio claims that on the question of abortion that you support abortion on baby's you say to that? >> i think it's pretty pathetic, john. this is something thator rubio has been just going as far as he can to try to i guess buttress his credentials with certain parts of the republicancy. i've been on record for years on where i stand on making abortion safe and legal, exceptions that are appropriate that should be looked into the very difficult choices that a very few women haveont that lead to
to begin to politicize this so early in the campaign season to try to raise the false charges like he's going to try to make sure roe v. wade is overturned and planned parenthood is defund asked just tactic by those on the right. >> dickerson: the charge is in terms of late term abortion that you talk about medical issues, but there are nonmedical say, others who share his view would say, that you're not having any restrictions on those who would choose to have an abortion forns puts you on the extreme side of this. >> well, it's just not true. people should go back read roe v. wade. reasonable kinds ofn be imposed as long as the life and health of the mother are taken into account and that
and y well having a lot of incredibly difficult conversations listening to women who were told somethingrd the end of their pregnancy, who were facing horrible kinds of consequences to their health and evenir life. that's why this has to be taken into account by each individual woman by her physician and herbut of course under roe v. wade there are certain guidelines and senator rubio should know that, or i hope he does now.own ham the other night you said that very interests are not giving me very much money now but according to the "washington post" analysis donors hedgece companies and other financial service terms have given you at least $21.4 million that's about 10% of what you've raised that seems like a lot of money.
calculation that we've done. but that's somebody's analysis. i'm not going to argue with it. what's really going on here,ing to me. i'll be really frank with you. what the sanders' campaign is trying to do is link donations to my political campaign or to anyone's political campaign with undue influence, with changing people's views and votes. i've never, ever done that. and i really do resent then or as i said the other night, the insinuation. it would be like saying that president obama who took probably more money from wall street than any democrat certainly successful campaign, was there for automatically disqualified. well in fact we know that was not true. he signed the toughest financiale the is the 30s with the dodd frank bill. this is a very artful smear i'm just not going to sit and take
these questions that people from the financial services industry have no greater access to you than anybody else? >> i'm saying that i amo and open to listening to people from all walks of life. i always have been, i always will be. but talk to the -- if people want to donate to mendustry they know where i stand. they know that i called them out on the mortgage market mess back in -- before the great crash happened. and i always like toit was not me, it was senator sanders who voted to deregulate slots and derivatives which gave lehman brothers a lot of extra leverage which was one of the contributing factorsse which obviously contributed to what happened in the great resection. so, we can take these step by step and try to unwind them but it doesn't change the basic people know where i stand. i rolled out the toughest, most effective effort to rein in financial abuse of anybody in
and iting much further than doddoes much further than restoring glass siegel it goes into shadow bankings, goes after now that is full disclosure i am on the record, if somebody in one of these firms wants to give me money, i hope they know they're giving money to someone who is going to make sure they never wreck the economy again. the debate you also said, quote, senator sanders is the only person who i think would characterize me a woman running to be the first woman president as exemplint." isn't the experience you're running on gained through years of working in democratic politics, doesn't that put you in the experience? >> well, i don't know. senator sanders has lot more time in elected offers than ihat amusing. he's been elected official nor 25 years. far longer than i was. i think i bring a great mix of
woman is a big see problems, how i think about solving problems, what i believe is absolutely foundational starting with children and theirtunities on my way to flint today to go and meet with the player who asked me to come because she wants to keep the national spotlight onhildren in her community. and i commend her for it. so, i think that the experiences i've had starting when i was in an advocate taking on theoing on to be first lady, taking on drug companies and pharmacy companies, taking on theing on a lot of big lobbies like the gun lobby. i think that i've shown that i've got a lot of experience taking on the and i'm proud of what i bring to the table to actually be able to solve problems and get results for people.y clinton have to leave it there. thanks for joining us this morning.
thank. >> dickerson: our next guest took few hours off the campaigne on "saturday night live." with his doppelganger larry david. let's take a look. >> my life is worth more than together, especially these women and midgets!3w all the same to you, i'm going to pop down in that lifeboat. >> hold on, hold on, wait [ cheering and applause ]1% getting this preferential treatment? enough is enough. we need to unite and work if we're all going to get through this.al."
>> huge difference. dickerson: bernie sanders is back in new hampshire. senator, while you were inkoreans launched a long-range missile and as president you face that kind of thing all the time, very often. saying that you don't have the experience to be ready for those kinds of challenges on day one. >> well, that's what she said about barack obama in 2008. out not to be true. furthermore, on the most imy issue in modern history the war in iraq, i voted against the war, i war. if you to go my website,ers.com you will see that much of what i feared would happen in fact did happen.
experience, obviously she's been a secretary of state for four years. but it is judgment as well. and i am confident that i can put together a strong teame great foreign policy for the people of the united states. @when you're president and there is a crisis you need to instill confidence in the country. in looking at these debates, it's clear you're confidentbout economic and income and equality, when it comes to foreign policy you are less confident. how would you show confidence asues? >> john, i think that's a media narrative that goes around and around. i can't accept that media narrative. again, on the most important issue of our time, i was hillary rodham clinton was wrong. this is the same argument made against bay pack obama in 2008. i will assemble a top notch foreign policy team and wecellent and strong foreign policy for the people. united states.
we have got to learn the lessons of iraq. that is that the united states cannot do it alone. we have to work in coalition, we have to work in coalition with major countries and with muslim will be on the ground. my main concern in terms of the middle east to make certain that the united states does not get involved in perpetual warfare in iraq and syria and afghanistan. >> dickerson: you've talked about the donations hick receives. an artful smear. what is your response to that? >> it's a fact. when in the last her super pac received $25 million and $15 million came from wall street, what is the smear? that is the fact.on: she says you can't point to a single vote that she
changed, can you?as super pac, nobody who gets money whether it's republican or democrat from the pharmaceutical industry, from the fossil fuel industry from wall street, there's nevern in history that that money influences me. it's just -- people are throwing millions ever dollars into the campaign, but why they're throwing that money into the campaign. i think, you know, the american people know better. i've never impugned a secretary clinton's integrityry clinton. but we have a corrupt campaign finance system, i am proud i do not have a super pac we have raised $3.5 million individualons averaging $27 apiece. >> dickerson: barack obama received a lot of money from these same groups. is he in the same fix as hillary clinton? -- it is a
let me tell you something, john, at the very top of my list of goals that i want to accomplish the united states, is overturning this disastrous citizens united supreme court decision. democracy does not mean that able to buy elections. >> dickerson: cnn has a piece this week that clinton campaign is passing around that talks about the fundraising did you for the democratic senatorial e. and that you in raising money and helping them to raise money from some of these people in the financial world are basically contributing to the same system that you are now beating up. the clinton people are talking about? >> dickerson: cnn was. >> well, cnn is wrong. participated in any of these fundraisers? >> i went to events, did i go money, absolutely not. what i did do, absolutely did not want to see the republicans
states senate i wrote letters to a whole lot oftters that went out to -- i'm guessing millions of people through democratic senate committee that raised millions of dollars for the democratic. one end i'm criticized because i'm not strong enough and then raising money for theittee to make sure they regain control of the senate. but no, i do not go and raise money for the financial institutions.en you write letters for the campaigns why do you think they're giving money if not for the expectation that by your thinking and roping they might have some influence overhe people i am writing to are contributing 25, 0, 40 dollars. if anybody doesn't know the difference between a contribution of 30 or $40 or which races millions of dollars from wall street, then frankly we don't know what
my letter that i sent out to designed to bring in low donations. low dollar donations. very, very different. from appealing to wall street orests. >> dickerson: the final question, you've dismissed some of the issues that the press has tried to raise about hillary clinton, her e-mails, for on this question of whether she should release transcripts of the speeches she gave to financial firms? >> well, a lot of people think ultimately herher point is that she's given these speeches, my understanding now her campaign says she's not going to release thoses. that's her decision. i think it would be a positive thing for the american people to know what was said behind closed doors to wallltimately that is her decision. >> dickerson: senator bernie sanders thanks for being with us

>> dickerson: we go now to the west coast and demaurice smith, the executive director of the nfl players association the union that represents nflin san francisco. mr. smith, i want to start with the nfl concussion, they increased this season from 115 in 2014 to 182 in 2at should we make of those numbers? >> well, i think we make of the numbers that we're probably doing a better job capturing the injuries that arei think we probably have a better system where players feel better to report the injuries that they have. so, we look at the numbers not
we look at it as, something we've already known. this is a game that is inherently dangerous, we want to have a game that not onlyt but also be on the back end mac sure that we do a better job treating our players. >> dickerson: in his annual address friday, commissioner concussions as an issue. in his opening statement. is the issue is the league taking this issue seriously enough? >> well, like anything with thee league goes absolutely as far as the union pushes them. so if it's the issue of sideline concussion experts, the union had to fight for that. if it'n for concussions, the union has to fight for that. so, the next really iteration of this fight is to make sure th%([ we have health care for the injuriesrs suffer and we're still battling that with a number of teams. >> dickerson: so, let me, two
concussions just on that, are you still having to fight to get the league to take that as seriously as they should be? >> absolutely. you saw earlier a quarterback clearly who had suffered a traumatic brain injury on the field. the trainer comes out on the field and actually left the player on the field. that is a violation of thely bargained protocols that the player wants, we have yet to have a system where that team was even punished by the, we look at injuries, we look at the exposure of injuries as a comprehensive issue that we have to approach from prevention, treatment and. >> dickerson: there is the news recently that ken stabler who i grew up watching play for the raiders, was found to have had chronic traumaticathy, very advanced version of that. are kids who watch today going
from now face the same kind of diagnosis.f the trend continues, probably, yes. we're happy, of course, with our partnership with harvard university, there's been recent technologyey that's resulted in a very early and perhaps explosive treatment for cte, it's in the early stages.o a better job of identifying how cte develops, we're thrilled about this new but the work that harvard and the players are doing about studying brain movement, making sure that there's new ways to treat concussions, that's the we have to look at it and while the stats are important, the dedication that the league and the league owners and the have to treat injuries that we know are going to occur, that's the direction
>> dickerson: back to your point about health care. should the league or teams commit to pay for health athletes all the way through their lives? >> well, at the very least, the teams need to commit themselves to treating the injuries thatt work. i mean, workers compensation was designed in this country to make sure that if employees got life-time medical for the injuries that they suffered. last year over the last five years, we've actually had to battle legislation in threet was supported by team owners to take worker's compensation away from nfl players. just to cut through, that worker's cost a taxpayer a dime. we cover it in our own collective bargaining agreement. when we're fighting legislation in carolina, fightingouisiana,
california to take away injury care for our players, that makeshe nfl owners truly want to address the issue of injuries. >> dickerson: demaurice smith, we thank you so much for being with us. we'll be right back with preview check this out, bro. what's that, broheim?ico and got more. more savings on car insurance? yeah bro-fessor, and more. like renters insurance. more ways to save.hip. that's not all, bro-tein shake. geico has motorcycle and rv insurance, too. oh, that's a lot more. about more, teddy brosevelt. geico. expect great savings
throughout his career, spent most. time answering the question that seemed to created firestorm when he described himself saying that most people haven't seen him, that he's african american quarterback. of course that description there just created firestorm of controversial about him. but he's wand honest young man there's no stage too big for him even given the super bowl stage here. >> dickerson: what about on the other side theyton manning, this could be historic game for him. what's at stake for him? >> james: well, you know, i think his legacy pretty much cemented anyway. the idealr the guy they call "the sheriff" to ride off into the sunset with his second super bowl championship. that would be the ideal. this guy has right way. notwithstanding him being linked to hgh if you will with that story that the source has
he's been excellent ambassador for the nfl. he's not the same player today that he was a few years ago. he's got a great team, a great supporting cast around him and of folks love to see him go out a winner. >> dickerson: all right. now the big final question, j.b., who is going to win? >> james: you know what, john,s for years deferred to the guys who played and coached the game not trying to muddy the watters that way. from a broadcaster's perspective selfishly all i want is a that will be in sync with being an historic broadcast being the 50th super bowl. cbs has broadcast more super bowls than anyone r anyone, 19. have this one. i just want a competitive game, john. >> dickerson: certainly. we're so glad you're there telling us about it we appreciate you being with us. we'll be
