2:01 pm
it's 5 p.m. on the east coast, 2 p.m. out west. if you are just tuning in, thanks for joining us. i'm miguel marquez in for fredricka whitfield. a tragic end to the summer in brazil. at least 233 people died, many
2:02 pm
of them college students in an early morning fire at a crowded nightclub in the southern city of santa maria. the students were celebrating the end of summer before heading back to classes on monday. how about this break out? >> there was a spectacular show at 2:00. part of the show included pyrotechnics. the flames shooting up. they touched the foam, insulation foam on the ceiling and firefighters are saying this preliminarily, that might have been the cause of the fire. it spread throughout the building very, very fast, creating dense smoke.
2:03 pm
the place didn't have enough emergency exits. >> a lot of bodies were found in the restrooms. why was that? >> one points, the emergency exits got blocked by people trying to get out of there, they got trampled. authorities say security guards were at first trying to prevent people from leaving the place which they were afraid they wouldn't pay their tabs, at that point, sounds ridiculous, that sounds like what happened. the second alternative was to go to the restrooms, at least they would find water there but a lot of the people were also tramped there. >> authorities combing now through what must be very grisly scene, but they are even affected. they are finding what down there as they go through this tough situation? >> part of the testimony that we have been listening to is -- comes from firefighters who got -- some of the first ones who got to the scene who told us they saw shoes strewn all over the floor of this place and also a lot of cell phones were going off at different times. of course, you can imagine
2:04 pm
people, families, trying to get to -- tried to get in touch with ones who died there. also some of the others who went to the hospital. >> i can't even imagine. our heart goes out. rafael romo, thank you very much for keeping us updated on this story. appreciate it. the u.s. has had its share of deadly nightclub fires. our susan candiotti joins us from new york. susan? >> reporter: hi, miguel. you know, with so many advances in fire safety, these disasters should be easier to prevent. here in the u.s., it's been nearly a decade since the last nightclub fire that caused mass casualties. in 2003, 100 people died at the station nightclub in west warwick, rhode island, where the band great white was performing. pyrotechnics ignited soundproofing material. smoke filled the room.
2:05 pm
in 1990, it killed 87 people. authorities said the bronx club was operating illegally, two years after it was ordered closed because of safety violations. in 1977, fire at the beverly hills supper club in southgate, kentucky, killed 165 people. among 2,400 waiting for entertainer john davidson to perform, which believed to be an electrical fire went undetected at first. there were no fire detectors or sprinklers. at the time, they weren't required. the deadliest nightclub blaze happened in 1942 at the coconut grove club in boston. 492 people were killed. the cause of the blaze, to this day, remains unknown. among the questions investigators will be asking, how badly the club may have been overcrowded and why. were there smoke detectors and a sprinkler system? as fire experts tell us, there is very little time to escape.
2:06 pm
>> well, what happens is the fire builds very rap applied like that builds up heap heath and smoke at the ceiling level and starts to descend very rapidly and i believe in some of those fires, about a minute and a half into the fire, it was at head level, where you can't breathe that smoke or gas without suffocating. >> reporter: according to eyewitnesses and investigators, suffocation appears to be the cause of death for so many in that brazil fire. miguel? >> susan, just terrible. thank you very much. what kind of steps can we take when you're going out for a night, a club to dance, a concert, some sort of crowded situation? >> well, you know there are a number of things that we all can do. we talked to safety experts who say you really have to pay attention to your surroundings. for example, if you see someone at the door to a club counting people who go in, that's likely a very good sign they are trying to prevent overcrowding you. check out the exits, be close to one. the first hint of trouble, get
2:07 pm
out do not hesitate to act. if you don't see sprinkler systems or smoke detectors when you first arrive, you might think twice about sticking around. migle? >> >> susan candiotti, thank you very much. turning now to the debate over gun control. republicans and democrats took to the air waves today. democratic senator dianne feinstein laid out her case for banning military-style rifles on cnn's "state of the union" today. gun shows this weekend saw increased traffic. those selling guns are finding more and more customers and some of the buyers are complaining that vendors taking advantage of the situation by raising prices. that arctic blast, it isn't over yet. parts of the midwest and northeast are being slammed with a mixture of freezing rain and snow, icy roads and poor visibility are making travel dangerous. and the cold weather will continue into the workweek with some areas in northeast getting light snow. some scary moments for a group of 50 hikers in arizona. they got trapped in raging waters while trying to cross a river.
2:08 pm
police rushed to the scene after getting a flood of 911 calls and spent hours trying to locate them. officials say it was a challenge to find them all but eventually, all those hikers were rescued. action could be taken soon on one of the most controversial elms of immigration reform. we will tell you what lawmakers are doing to tackle it. to the best vacation spot on earth.
2:09 pm
(all) the gulf! it doesn't matter which of our great states folks visit. mississippi, alabama, louisiana or florida, they're gonna love it. shaul, your alabama hospitality is incredible. thanks, karen. love your mississippi outdoors. i vote for your florida beaches, dawn. bill, this louisiana seafood is delicious. we're having such a great year on the gulf, we've decided to put aside our rivalry. now is the perfect time to visit anyone of our states. the beaches and waters couldn't be more beautiful. take a boat ride, go fishing or just lay in the sun. we've got coastline to explore and wildlife to photograph. and there's world class dining with our world famous seafood.
2:10 pm
so for a great vacation this year, come to the gulf. its all fabulous but i give florida the edge. right after mississippi. you mean alabama. say louisiana or there's no dessert. this invitation is brought to you by bp and all of us who call the gulf home. president obama has said immigration reform is one of his top priorities this term. tuesday, he is headed to vegas to begin what basically is a campaign to get his reform's package through congress. emily schmidt is following the story for us. do we know what the president plans to include in that vegas speech?
2:11 pm
>> reporter: that is a place want president is going to be making his case toward congress. he has a three-point plan that he is going to be talking about, aides say. basically, they are talking about things like increasing border security, making sure -- enforcings through make sure employers aren't hiring illegal immigrants and undocumented works and the pathway to citizenship we hear so much about the president stays is a top priority. what's moore, some members of congress from both sides of the aisle say that they are also cautiously optimistic reform could become a rate. arizona republican senator john mccain says he and other senators plan to announce the key principles of their plan a little later this week. >> is there is a new, i think appreciation on both sides of the aisle, including maybe more important on the republican side of the aisle that we have to enact a comprehensive immigration reform bill. >> reporter: now, senator mccain said on abc news "this week" that that plan would include a way for undocumented immigrants to gain a way to citizenship.
2:12 pm
when asked how do you convince republicans of that he pointed to the last election, miguel, where republican mitt romney got just 26% of the latino vote, 71% backed president obama. and those are numbers that stand out to the gop. >> oh, the numbers, yes, i'm sure they do no mystery why the president is in nevada, certainly want to paint that state blue as well what is your sense of it, can -- will congress come together in the math has changed enor mousily on immigration politics. ly be able to get his reforms through congress? >> reporter: we are hearing more optimism from both sides of congress today on the sunday talk shows than perhaps people have heard in a while and perhaps one reason, miguel, could be taking a look at the poll numbers. when you have a cnn/orc poll that was taken just a week before the president took office for his second term, it asked people what should you can the policy for immigration on illegal immigrants? what was interesting, half, 53% of people said there should be a plan to allow people to become
2:13 pm
citizens of the u.s., 43% were actually favoring deportation and border security, but if you look at the numbers from 2011, they were almost opposite at that point. we have seen public opinion shift on this in just two years. it may be one reason that we are hearing this renewed policy discussion. >> are you and others in washington, are you surprised at how quickly this thing has turned around? >> reporter: i think one thing that's interesting, we have cover sod many stories here in washington, you see the bipartisanship is not really the keyword. both sides are so entrenched in their different sides. instead today, we are hearing both sides talking about the potential for progress, the potential for cooperation on this. and that's tone that has been lacking on many issues recently. >> wow. we never hear that in washington. emily schmidt, thank you very much. for folks who like to shop with their credit card, listen up. starting today, you may pay more every time you swipe the card.
2:14 pm
merchants are now allowed to add a service charge to the purchase price, equal the cost of processing its transaction and could be as much as 4%. some stores say they won't add the charge. postage stamps may be called forever stamps and the prices are forever going up. starting today, it will now cost you an extra penny to send a first class letter, instead of 45 cents, you will see 46. next, another read on how much life there is in the housing market. kenny poll carvey director of floor operations for o'neil securities and joins me from new york. hello there. >> hello, miguel. how are you? >> let me start with the house. we have seen things getting better in the market there. what are you expecting this week? >> they are expecting certainly that the housing numbers are going to -- housing price and existing home sales, everything,
2:15 pm
they are looking for that to improve, right? you have to be careful, when you look at the improving housing numbers, you have to look at where they are improving, parts of the country, housing is very regional, understand that, right? you have to understand are they building multifamily, single family, because that also paints a different picture. multifamily is typically more rental-type housing than single family. all those things play a key into it. no doubt that i think the housing market's probably seen the worst but i don't, by any stretch, suggest or think that the housing market has just taken off and ramping up, people feel like they have to jump in or they are going to miss t >> lukewarm there. jobs growth has been decent in recent months. what are you expecting on friday when those numbers come out and will a good number what will it say about the economy, where it is? >> it depends on what the good number is right in the expectation is for about 175 thousand jobs, clearly a positive number moving in the right direction, but understand, you know, we need to create better than 300,000 jobs every month in order to really get out of this hole that we're in. that being said, i think you're going to get a preliminary look
2:16 pm
at the jobs number on wednesday, adp, they will come out wednesday with their sometiesti. any positive number is a good number. anything in or around 165 will be viewed as certainly expected. don't expect, you know they massive reaction as a result. this economy like an indecisive lover, isn't it? earnings, coming up. boeing, ford, caterpillar, all big players out there, good indicator of where the economy is heading. what do you expect to see there? >> listen, we have seen earnings this quarter come in, 72% of the earnings so far have wasn't the estimates, but investors should understand the estimates have been slashed for the fourth quarter, right in the expectation was for 2.8 or 3% growth rate, that's down from 9% the previous quarter. so, in fact, it's almost impossible for a lot of these companies not to beat the estimate what we're seeing is that they are missing on the top revenue line but yet they are still beating the estimate because they are making those strategic employment decisions,
2:17 pm
meaning layoffs much the financial services industry alone, we have seen 16,000 layoffs in the first three weeks of the month, of the year, we haven't gotten into february yet. tough take that with a grain of salt, be very careful, as a long-term investor, you should have a plan and stick with it right? >> well, that's what one thinks, it is hard to tell in this economy these days. you know better than i, kenneth. the stock market has been good recently. are you expecting that to continue and is it really a good indicator of where the larger economy is going? >> you know, be careful with that the stock market has been good, right? but a lot of it the reason it has been so good is because we have this massive stimulus policies out of the fed and out of washington so you have to be very careful about that i think the market at the moment feels tired, it feels exhausted, we are up 6% since the first of the year, up 11% in eight weeks. the market has really not had a pullback. by no means am i saying you are going to have this massive correction but don't be surprised. and long-term investors should welcome the if a act that the
2:18 pm
market pull backs little bit. 5 or 6% would be helpful. you want to see the market pull back and build a base before the market pulls high her. i suggest we broke through 1500 on the s and pf that were really important, if this demand was pent up, would you see the market blast forward. in fact, that didn't. what that tells you, there is a sense of exhaustion at the moment and one that needs to regroup. >> as guy who watches all this, what do you want to see more than anything? what would say to you we're back in business here? >> well, you know, i'd like to see consistent job creation for sure. i'd like to see consumer confidence kind of rebound. i would like to see investors get comfortable again with the market. part of the problem with market action recently has been since we have gone through this financial crisis and since market structure has changed over the last five or six years, it is very complicated, very fragmented, people have lost some confidence in it, right? that's not good for the public markets, not good for the u.s. capital system. people need to get more confident to come back in.
2:19 pm
i sense, as the economy starts to turn around, housing starts to stabilize, people feel more comfortable, then your going to get a return. people realize equity very much a part of their portfolio going forward and need to be for the long-term investors. >> feeling a little bit better economy, i suppose. thank you very much for spending part of your sunday with us. hillary clinton just days away from stepping down as secretary of state. we will take a look at her legacy in washington and how years from now, she may end up making history. ♪ aww man.

2:20 pm
2:21 pm
2:22 pm
secretary of state hillary clinton won't be secretary of state for long. she is expected to leave office as john kerry is confirmed. but her legacy in washington will be talked about for years. someone who has intervupd written about hillary clinton many times, especially during her years in the white house is biographer and historian carl anthony. he joins us from los angeles. hello, mr. anthony, how are you >> very well, thank you. >> what are the core values of mrs. clinton, first lady that continued to drive her as senator and then as secretary of state? >> well, i will tell you, they are very personal values and the kind of sort of internal lesson, if you will, principles values that she started out with as a young person and developed on her own. she has an enormous capacity for forgiveness, of course, very important in politics and
2:23 pm
especially global politics, alliances are shifting and she has the ability to see herself as both a symbol and recognize what people invest in her that might be unrealistic but never lose a sense of her own sense of being a human being, which means that you have limitations and flaws. what happens, she meets people, regardless of what station in life they may be at, she has an openness, she listens to people and a respect for those people. she has an ability to see the big picture and been in jobs always a focus on a crisis and a small pitch but she always has the bigger picture in mind. frankly, i think if you go back -- she has been in public office -- public service for 32 years, since she became
2:24 pm
governor's wife, it's been a mission and that mission is to help other people. it will have that simple. >> is he has certainly been through the ringer, in her many roles in washington. of all the first lay diswho does she most resemble? >> i have to say i have written an article about this, too but first lady of the world is the term that was applied eleanor roosevelt after her 20 or so years in public service. i think really that is genuinely aapplicable now to hillary clinton. even when she was not elected official, first lady, taken on conversion to issues but important every day issues that face people and known that she will have to -- she will be attacked and criticized personally attacked, even if it's unfair. on the other hand, she has
2:25 pm
always had a global -- an interesting cultures and people from around the world and saw the big picture what is it that makes -- she is commonality among human beings? that way, very much like jacqueline ken day real fascination for different ways people live. >> let's look at a little of that. there are other first ladies who have made major impact opts country. you can go back many years to lady -- the first lady, dolley madison, many feel defined the role of first lady, policy side, bet any ford with substance abuse, nancy reagan has the just say no campaign on drugs and jackie kennedy, style you glamour, glitz, all that stuff. talk more then about the similarities between jackie kennedy and mrs. clinton. >> there is also a lot of great differences, of course, because jacqueline kennedy did, carry to popular belief, have a great knowledge and interest in public
2:26 pm
issues and political issues but she didn't get into them and she wouldn't address them in public. she only did so privately. like betty ford, hillary clinton has always talked about the rights of women and that this is important and she has actually even brought that point out from a very practical point of view to many nations that don't include women in their societies as fully. she says, look, you're not using 100% of what you could be using in terms of brain and know-how and business skill and workforce. and you suffer by that and like dolley madison, as first lady in the white house, she very effectively used entertaining as a way to sometimes forward the objectives of her husband's political agenda. certainly, what people also don't realize about hillary clinton is she had a great love and fascination for american
2:27 pm
art. she started a sculpture guard nrnt white house, brought in contemporary crafts on display for the public. and she was one of those few first ladies, i must add that had an actual knowledge and interest and respect for the first lady before her. >> carl anthony from california, thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you very much. well, it is the s.a.g. awards tonight. something that actors would love to take home with them. but that's tonight. oh, look at that, live pictures from the red carpet of the s.a.g. awards, the highly coveted s.a.g. awards being handed out in just a few hours and we are live on the red carpet. details ahead.
