he is saying a lot of stuff about hillary clinton that's making people go hmm, what is he up to? welcome back to "early start." i'm john berman. >> what is he up to? i'm christine romans, it is almost 30 minutes after the hour. representative paul ryan now says he is willing to serve as speaker of the house but the conditions he is laying out only escalate the tensions on capitol hill. look, if we do you this, we will do it my ray way. he includes far right lawmakers, kevin mccarthy, ryan is setting a deadline friday in just two days. for the very latest, let's go to senior washington correspondent jeff zelleney. >> they have now agreed to serve as the next house speaker but only under the condition that fractured congressional republicans come together and
present a unified front. ryan met last night with republicans on capitol hill and issued what could be described as a political pre-nuptial agreement. it's time to be visionarys, not obstructionists. >> we knead to move from an opposition party to being a proposition party. because we think the nation is on the wrong path, we have a duty to show the right one. our next speaker has to be a visionary one. >> ryan agreed to be speaker but only if they agree to a set of rules. ryan has a bright future and did not want to accept this position but he was under considerable pressure to do so. ryan said he wants to know by friday if all 247 house republicans will support him. now, this could be a heavy lift. he wants support from all the divided republican groups, ranging from the tea party supporters to the moderate. he will hooipd find out on friday if he gets their backing or not. if not, for house republican, it's back to square one to
replace speaker boehner, who was essentially driven out by house conservatives late last month. >> this whole race for speaker has been interesting. it's been some of the upstart dpaud quadrants of congress of the house who wanted more say, in fact they might get less say if they get paul ryan. >> i think there is huge irony here. this is an incredibly muscular move. i haven't seen anything like this they could end up with these people block candidate after candidate, they may get the most powerful domineering house speaker they have had yet. it's very, very interestingch and paul ryan is only gym for him now. because if they don't do it his way, look, i told you so the chairman of the house ways and means, which was a job he wanted to begin with. >> which is a powerful job. all right. another huge political question. will today finally at last be the day that vice president joe biden announces if he is running for president?
the answer is, who the heck knows. what we do know is that all of a sudden he is offering frequent stark contrast between himself and hillary clinton. he praised clinton as secretary of state, sure, but noted that he was the one who was sent in to be the closer with foreign leaders. he claims he spends upwards of seven hours a day with president obama and most notably the vice president is also repeatedly taking barely veiled shots at clinton's debate answer when she kiernted republicans among the enemies she is proud of making. from it is possible, it is necessary to end this notion end this notion that the enemy is the other party. end this notion that it's niaiv to think we can speak well of the other party to cooperate.
what is naive is to think it's remotely possible to govern this country unless we can. >> that is what is naive. it's mostly important that everybody in this room understand the other team is not the enemy. if i treat it as the enemy, there is no way we can ever, ever, ever resolve the problems we have to and you end up with the dysfunction that we're experiencing here in washington. >> we see so much of joe biden trying to clarify and make it clear about what his role is in some of the these important events like he is trying to portray himself as one of the president's most trusted counsellors, the advice on the night obama green lit the raid where psalm all was killed. now biden says he was in favor of the attack on plaud's compound. >> so as we walked out of the room and walked upstairs, i
said, i told him my opinion, that i thought she should go but follow his own ink instinct, but it would have been a mistake, imagine if i had said in front of everyone, don't go or go and his decision was a different decision? >> listen to what biden said back in 2012 about his advice that night to the president. >>. >> we owe the man a direct answer. mr. president, my suggestion is don't go, we have to do two more things to see if he's there. >> hmm. he also did not include hillary clinton when listing officials who supported the raid and notable minute agos the to say the least. as for hillary clinton, her campaign has been celebrating the backing of officials, including a rise in democratic star hud secretary julio castro, there are reports some of the officials she is listing, including mayors in wilmington, delaware and san antonio have fought actually endorsed her. new volleys in the ongoing feud between jeb bush and donald trump over the september 11th attacks and whether george w. bush kept the country safe prior
to those attacks as trump has questioned. jeb bush has a 68thing op ed in the national review. he writes, let's be clear, donald trump simply doesn't know what he's talking about. and his bluster overcompensates for a shocking lack of knowledge on the complex national security challenges that will confront the next president of the united states. so donald trump responded overnight to fox news, perhaps, softening his tone a bit... >> i respect the fact that jeb is defending his brother. i think that's good. i would do the same. . >> if jeb wins the nomination, will you support him? >> absolutely, yes, i would absolutely support him. he's a good person, he's a good man. i would support him. >> the good person, good man, nice guy stuff stuff that trump said a lot a. lot of people thinking the way he says it is in a demeaning way, sure, he's a nice guy, i like him. then he'll go on and say he's low energy, not sharp enough. today donald trump campaigning
in iowa. republicans have a debate next week in colorado. democrats on the house benghazi committee are considering resigning their post after hillary resigns this week. by staying on, he and other democrats will only lend legitimacy to a committee in his words quote really has none. schiff and other democrats say they plan to attend thursday's quebec of the former secretary of state to ensure proceedings are fair. breaking news this morning, syrian president bashar al-assad in moscow overnight meeting with russian leader videladmir putin. they spoke about terrorist extremist groups. the u.s., of course, has expressed concern that russia is in syria. what they're doing is going after assad's enemies, not targeting isis as they claim. president obama travels to west virginia today, where he will address a critical issue for so many state's substance
abuse. drug overdose deaths in west virginia more than twice the national average. the president will ensure commitment that people struggling get the medical help they need. that's the goal instead of having these people end up in prison. time for an "early start" new money, chinese stocks are lower, closed lower, down more than 3%, breaking a recent winning streak, u.s. stock futures are down t. dow now down 3.4% this year. for investing warren buffet, he's an icon, right, he likes blue chip companies that aracy to understand. take a look at his top investments, ibm disappointed wall street this week. shares down 12% this year. coca-cola stock flat this year compared to rivals pepsi and dr dr. pepper, even worse, american express is down 17%, that is buffet's fifth largest holding.

talking about this. what is the american cancer society advising women to do or in some cases not do now? >> exactly, exactly. so, christine, let's take a look at this specific recommendation. up until yesterday, the american cancer society said start getting annual mammograms at age 40. now they say start at age 45. they say you can start at 40 if you want. we recommend 45. they say after 55, you don't need to have them every year, can you have them every other if you like and also they made this change, they used to recommend regular breast exams by your doctors, where a doctor feels for lumps and bumps. now they're saying, no one needs or no one of average risks need these routine image exams. the reason why is they say, look, we found that mammograms in your early 40s and that these doctors exams, they just don't find cancer early and save lives. now, christine, i want to say if a woman has a family history of certain cancers, if she carries the breast cancer gene, her screening regimen would be much
different. she would be screening much earlier, much more often. >> that's very clear these are guidelines, their screenings will be different. many of us know people whose breast cancer was found by doctors exams. a lot of people are asking how could less screening actually help women? >> the american cancer society ze saysing look, we looked at studies and few studies and what we found is that mammograms often have false positives. they save lives, they also have false positives, so we're telling women we think you might have cancer, giving them biopsys, more radiation to tell a large number of women you are just fine. the other things they do, this is counterintuitive, is they find tiny cancers that will never ends up bothering a woman. she can live with that cancer until she is 100 and dies of
something else. they catch cancers, they catch tiny slow growing cancers that you really don't want to find. once you find them the doctor is compelled to give you chemotherapy and possibly a mastectomy. so for those two reasons they saiding look, you don't want too many, you want just the right number. in the end, it's up to the woman and her doctor to decide what the right number is. these guidelines have gotten for lack of a better term smushier and smushier. more and more wear hearing you and your doctor decide. >> we spent so many years trying to protect women from cancer and get the rates down, now there is a popular discussion, have we been doing too much, gone too far? do other experts agree with the american cancer society? >> you know, many experts don't. they think that maybe the cancer society is recommending starting too young or too old. so 45 is now the american cancer society's recommendation. the american college of
obstetricians and gynecologists recommend starting at 40 they are reviewing that recommendation now. the u.s. preventative services task force says, hey, we think you should start at 50. all of these groups have come under criticism for something in many ways is not tear fall t. studies they are looking at are studies of film mammography. they're not looking for the studies of digital mammography because it's so new. it hasn't been studied so much. so some of the experts i talked to said, look, we're not really so sure how effective today's mammograms are. we don't know what to tell women. because it's different than what's been studied before. >> that's a real interesting point. thank you so much for that, elizabeth. >> about ten minutes to the hour. can diplomacy help stop the violence in israel? the united nations and secretary of state john kerry about to get involved. new attacks breakout overnight. that's next.
>> secretary of state john kerry heads to europe in the middle east today. he plans to meet separately with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and mahmoud abas to try to ease the tensions going on in that region. israeli defense forces announce the high ranked leader accusing him of actively instigateing terrorism.
all this as u.s. secretary moon arrives in jerusalem, calling for an end to the violence, we go live to jerusalem and bring in cnn's phil black. there is a lot of talking to both sides to the u.n. and any hope the two sides will talk to each other? >> reporter: no, i don't think anybody is trying to be that ambitious. what they hope to do by intervening the u.n. and the u.s. is to act as the go between that can hopefully persuade both sides to dial back their language to some extent their behavior, try and break the cycle of violence that has gripped this region for three weeks now. that's how long we have been seeing these increased number of random attacks on the streets here in israel, jerusalem and the west bank that disputed territory. >> that is for how long we have seen palestinians with knives and cutting instruments, attacking israelis, soldiers, police officers as well, a mounting death toll that has
seen at least eight israelis killed. more than we believe 45 palestinians have been killed in the same period of time as well. this is from the start of the month. just this morning, early, there was another incident. palestinian approaching an israeli settlement on the west bank, this person was apparently carrying a knife. warning shots were fired, ignored. this person was shot in the shoulder t. person carrying the knife according to officials was a 15-year-old girl. >> that is the cycle. it has become the new normal. the concern is it could escalate further. >> that is why this diplomatic effort is under way to try and cool the mood here to break this cycle of violence. >> phil black for us in jerusalem. thanks so much. let's hope they make some progress there indeed. you heard this before, chipotle, wall street isn't so sure why the burrito boom might be over.
futures barely moving. a lot happening on the street today, earnings from boeing, coca-cola and others before the bell. one stock falling, chipotle 12%. chipotle's worst growth in two years t. chain just isn't growing at the rapid speed it once was. that's because it already has a big foot print, almost doubling the number of restaurants in the last few years. also big loss yesterday, ibm had a tough day. that's why you had the dow close a little early. >> "early start" whatever show we have scheduled next continues right now. >> yes. ♪ breaking overnight, paul ryan announcing he is opened to serving as the next speaker of the house with a whom bunch of contention? what on earth is joe biden? is he about to announce he is
