tv At This Hour With Berman and Bolduan CNN January 21, 2016 8:00am-9:01am PST
oh, it's going to switch. the woman with the red hair, can you guess who that is? not these women, but the first women. put it back up, man, i only got six seconds. there it is. liz, who works at the fox business channel. we were once colleagues. the entire two-hour special "the person who changed my life" airs this sunday night at 8:00 p.m. eastern. thank you for joining me today. i'm carol costello. "at this hour with berman and bolduan" starts right now. hello, everyone, i'm kate bolduan. >> i'm john berman. brace yourself, folks. new blizzard watches just issued. whiteout conditions in the forecast. a whopping 75 million people now said to be in the path of this monster winter storm. that's about to slam the eastern part of the country. that's a big jump. forecasters predicting record-breaking snowfall. >> it looks like washington,
d.c. may be the hardest hit. let's get over to cnn meteorologist chad myers. chad, yesterday you said, give me time, folks. i need to figure out where this is going. what are you seeing right now? >> things haven't changed. the models have been in amazing agreement overnight. they didn't move the bull's-eye. they didn't move where the ice slain rain snow line would be. now we have blizzard watches from new york city, long island, philadelphia. n you get down to baltimore and also down into d.c. that's where the heavy snow will be. winter storm warnings from memphis back to nashville, knoxville, even into greenville and charlotte as well. there will be an ice storm where you see the pink and purple. snow where you see the white. there is a line of demarcation. and it isn't little. it's big. annapolis, you might get 4 inches. gaithersburg, you'll get 30. somewhere in that line is going
to be an amazing demarcation between where it's raining and snowing compared to where it's only raining and really piling up the snow. another line of demarcation is new york city. north of new york city there will be 2 inches perform south there will be 14. we'll see how that line moves north and south over the next couple of hours and even really, for that matter, days. 36 hours before this really gets wound up and there's a lot of wind with it, too. the major part of the snow doesn't affect the northeast. don't take your eye off the prize. new york city, even with 6 to 10 inches of snow, that is a lot of snow, even in the city to move around. especially good. i guess it's on a saturday. here's how it looks for the next couple of days. washington, d.c., 20 to 30. i would say college park, 20. you get out towards rockville, that's where your 30 might be because it's going to be a big line across d.c., across the b.w. parkway. left, right, snow, the other side, only rain. farther to the north, new york city, 6 to 10. that's where i'm going in the next couple of hours. guys, back to you?
>> chad, we'll light the fire for you, keep things warm. you'll need it. >> a lot to watch out for. states of emergency have been declared in virginia and washington, d.c. moments ago, washington's mayor apologized for not being better prepared for last night's light dusting of snow. yes, it is a joke for anyone living in and around d.c., this is a city that shuts down with a hint or a whisper of snow coming through. but last night, this is exactly what happened. the washington metro area came to an icy, screaming halt after an inch of icy snow fell. the roads treacherous, leaving drivers stuck in their vehicle for hours in many cases. >> even the president got caught up in the whole thing. his motorcade with hazard lights flashing. it grounded marine 1. our credits frates joins us from washington. i have to believe it's all about preparation right now. >> reporter: it's all about preparation, that's right, john
and kate. we heard from d.c. mayor muriel bowser who apologized for the mess out there last night. she said they didn't respond early enough, they didn't put adequate resources on the road. she spent most of that news conference trying to assure the washington area they are ready for this next wallop of a storm that's coming. she said in her time here, she's a long-time washingtonian, she's never heard of a forecast this big. the state of emergency now in place here in the d.c. area. the city of d.c. declaring a state of emergency. that means that the national guard and fema will be available if needed here. muriel bowser, the mayor here, also saying that the city government will shut down early. schools will be closed tomorrow. even though we're not expecting the storm to start until 4:00, they want to keep everybody off the roads so they can pretreat the roads, get the salt trucks out. avoiding what we saw last night. not a lot of pretreating and a
lot of slipping and sliding happening all over the area. muriel bowser trying to calm everybody, saying we're ready for this. we're expecting up to 2 feet of snow. just pretty much telling washingtonians, get home as soon as you can on friday. don't linger. hunker don't and come back out. it will be a crazy 36 hours. >> good advice. we got breaking news in the last two minutes. the national weather service said a blizzard watch is in effect until sunday morning in washington, d.c., baltimore, philadelphia and new york city. wow. that's a lot of people living inside that blizzard watch. chris, are you in the middle of it. i guarantee you'll have a couple fun days. good luck. now to awe different kind of storm. one that's swamping the campaign trail. brand-new attacks from donald trump it was announced ted cruz will appear with radio host
glenn beck this weekend, trump tweeted, whacko glenn back is a sad answer to the sarah palin usa endorsement that cruz so desperately wanted. glenn is a failing, crying lost soul. >> sunlen following the cruz campaign. are they responding? >> reporter: they haven't responded yet. it will be interesting to see how they handle this on the campaign trail when cruz appears with glenn beck at an event hosted by his super pac. it's been fascinating to watch ted cruz in new hampshire get completely knocked off his message as he campaigns through this state. he has suffered a serious blows to his campaign. you had the sarah palin endorsement of donald trump and her hitting the campaign trail for him. you also had simultaneously -- near simultaneously takedown of two republican figures, the iowa republican governor, a
long-term, well respected there, and also bob dole yesterday. and it's been really interesting to see how ted cruz responds. he really keeps getting hassled, in his opinion, by all these questions out here on the campaign trail about this. here's how he's responding. >> right now the washington establishment is abandoning marco rubio. they made the assessment marco can't win the race. the washington establishment is rushing over to support donald trump. we're seeing that happen every day. mr. trump is welcoming the support of the washington establishment. >> reporter: you see the argument he's trying to weave, a one-two punch, trying to take out rubio and trump, trying to tie them both to the establishment wing of the party. and what this week has really done for ted cruz is allowed him to somewhat shift into an area where he's comfortable as a can dashgts railing against the establishment, hitting at the establishment hard. and also holding up all this criticism as proof he thinks he
is the true anti-establishment candidate out there. >> thank you so much. so, hillary clinton, she is in iowa this morning, working to woo voters before she heads to an endorsement event with pop star demi lovato. clinton's campaign is going through a rough patch right now. in the latest poll, clinton is losing ground to bernie sanders in new hampshire. >> now, not only is hillary clinton facing a much tighter race in iowa, she's also facing a new bernie sanders ad with simon and garfunkel music. parsley, sage and delegates, if you will. let's bring in senior political correspondent jeff zeleny in iowa. >> reporter: that is a sense of optimism that bernie sanders is trying to convey to his voters here. what a better way to do it than with the 1968 anthem "america "by simon and garfunkel.
bernie sanders is going to start using that in ads here in iowa and new hampshire to try to send the message that voters can believe in something again. voters can believe in him and his ideals. hillary clinton is trying to focus on her experience. she's trying to pop this balloon, if you will, of sanders' supporters and say, look, i am the person who has been through this. i've been in the white house. i've been in the senate. i've been in the secretary of state's office. last night in burlington, iowa, she gave iowa voters an even stronger message. >> so, you have to decide who can do the job, because it really is selecting both a president and a commander in chief. those are equally important. they have different parts of this very overwhelming, in some ways, job, that we ask one person to do. >> so, hillary clinton there talking about how difficult the job of the presidency is. of course, she desperately wants it.
look, all these polls are coming out. polls are a snapshot in time of what has happened. so, it's very important in these closing 11 or 12 days before the iowa caucuses to watch what the can daws are saying to voters and how voters react. we've seen different scenarios over the years. howard dean in '04 had big support coming into the iowa caucus and then voters decided to pick a president and go with john kerry. in 2008 voters decided to go with barack obama over hillary clinton. it's impossible to know if the polls are predictive measures what will happen. i can tell you, the energy, the enthusiasm is on the sanders' side. i'm here in indianola, iowa, at simpson college where hillary clinton will be speaking in a few minutes. she'll make the same case to the iowa voters. that her experience is essential. >> trying to inspire that enthusiasm to get people to turn out on a cold iowa night. jeff zeleny, thanks to see you. our next guest calls sarah palin a liar for linking palin's
arrest to president obama's policy. we'll discuss. the murder of a former russian spy. a new report accuses the russian leader in a poison plot. don't worry about the toxic water pipts just a game of political football. that among the stunning messages and e-mails from officials in flint, michigan, as families and children deal with possible lead poisoning. never before seen e-mails just ahead. the 88th southern parallel. we had traveled for over 850 miles. my men driven nearly mad from starvation and frostbite. today we make history. >>bienvenidos! welcome to the south pole!
came out today thousands of people to run the race for retirement. so we asked them... are you completely prepared for retirement? okay, mostly prepared? could you save 1% more of your income? it doesn't sound like much, but saving an additional 1% now, could make a big difference over time. i'm going to be even better about saving. you can do it, it helps in the long run. prudential bring your challenges
because marie callender knows that the most comforting thing about comfort food, is who you're sharing it with. marie callender's. it's time to savor. endorsement from sarah palin. she is now facing backlash from veteran's groups over comment she made tying the white house to her son's domestic violence arrest. palin's son is a 26-year-old iraq veteran who was charged this week on domestic violence charges. she addressed the issue last night in oklahoma.
listen. >> my son, like so many others, they come back a bit different. they come back hardened. they come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen and every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to this country. and that starts from that, the top. the question, though, that comes from our own president where they have to look at him and wonder, do you know what we go through? do you know what we're trained to do to secure america? >> let's bring in democratic strategist and cnn political commentator donna brazile and doug heye, former dnc commentator. donna, you don't like sarah palin's comments one bit. >> i'm a daughter of a veteran. i believe they should be treated with respect when they return home from the battlefield, whether it's home or abroad.
i thought her comments, when what i call below the mark. her son was arrested for domestic violence. that's a very serious issue. and rather than deal with her son, flying back home to figure out what happened, i think most mothers would do that. i know my mother would have done that. whether she got on stage and really made disparaging comments about the president. over the last seven years, i've heard just about everything. president obama blamed for the weather. president obama blamed for this, that and the other. but to blame the president of the united states, who put more than sufficient funds in the budget last year, the 2016 veterans' budget, $1.5 billion, was taken out of subcommittee. he put money on the table to help our veterans, to try to deal with the problems at the va. rather than discuss that, sarah palin blamed it on the president. you know what i called her last night, and i'll repeat it, i called her a liar. because that was misleading. she should know the difference. when someone is trying to help
our veterans. when you're the mother of a serviceman who now has been accused of something, you know what, go inside. help your son. and i hope he gets the help and treatment he needs. and i thank him for his service. >> we'll see if sarah palin responds. >> i hope she doesn't. you don't want to mess with me because i don't play those games. i don't let nobody say bad things and then sit back and wait for them to respond. so i respect her. >> sarah palin doesn't hold back very often either. >> i respect her as a mother. she loves her children. >> absolutely. >> but you don't -- you don't bring the president of the united states when he is also trying to deal with this. he is trying to deal with this serious issue. but domestic violence is a serious issue, too. >> we'll see if sarah palin responds any further. let's talk about the state of the race. what we're seeing in the last 24/48 hours is what ted cruz calls the washington establishment coming out against him. you have bob dole and others
saying anybody but ted cruz, that basically means donald trump is the better option. what are you hearing? >> i'm hearing things all over the map. obviously, as we've talked, i'm very anti-trump. i think he would be a disaster for us. i'd support ted cruz if he were our nominee. ultimately, i think we need to dial back and say, what is this washington establishment we're talking about? donald trump had hillary clinton attend his wedding. ted cruz was a bush administration appointee and was john boehner's lawyer. that's not really outside the game. if you're running for president, you want somebody who has experience with how government works, how we can make government work better. it's certainly not working for americans now. as we talked about inside/outsiders, establishment versus aenlt-establishment, we should see their policies and how they will affect american voters. >> does it disqualify him that hillary went to his wedding? people like to party, doug? why not? >> donna brazile comes out in favor -- let the record show,
donna brazile coming out in favor of parties and sociali socializing. >> hey, i make a promise, i'll go to doug's wedding. invite me. >> you better go. i've partied with doug. >> the dance after your wife -- >> where are we? where are we right now? >> this is bipartisanship right here. >> sarah palin endorsed donald trump. what's the next big endorsement out there? who's left to endorse that could make a difference? >> well, i think what we'll see is as candidates peel away, those will be the endorsements that make a difference. we look at the wmur poll in new hampshire. trump is leading. cruz is not far behind. if you combine bush, rubio, christie and kasich, you get to 32 poins, two point behind donald trump. if we get to at 20 -- >> i'm sure they'll get out and
endorse each other. >> clint eastwood. has he made an endorsement you? i don't care. these endorsements, they're validation. donald trump needs evangelical, home schoolers. he needs the support of those who are very conservative. >> from the democratic side, hillary clinton welcomes endorsements. she's doing an endorsement with demi lovato. >> hey, it's validation. i haven't endorsed anyone because i'm neutral. the fact is that these folks are good surrogates, good validaters and can help with fund-raisers. sarah palin is the, quote/unquote, movement lady. when john mccain selected her, i was at the convention. yes, i go to republican conventions. thank you, cnn. it was a four-car funeral. it was so dead, i thought i was going under. here comes sarah palin, she woke up the house. she really put some energy out there.
don't be so down on these endorsements. i think they're very fun. they're very good. >> all right. done noo brazil in favor of endorsements and social sociali >> we'll share a video of that. >> i got you, baby. after you get married. i don't want you as a single man. after you're married. >> we're all working on it. we've been working on that for years. >> i'm very frightened. >> the number two democrat in the house joins us live -- >> we'll also be talking about partying. >> what happens to his party if bernie sanders gets the nomination? what does that mean? also ahead for us, new accusations that vladimir putin personally ordered the assassination of one of his former spies. what a new report says about poison and revenge. m here to gef the house back on her feet. and give her the strength and energy to stay healthy. who's with me?! yay! the complete balanced nutrition of great tasting ensure. with 9 grams of protein and 26 vitamins and minerals. ensure. take life in!
that's why i switched from u-verse to xfinity. now i can download my dvr recordings and take them anywhere. ready or not, here i come! (whispers) now hide-and-seek time can also be catch-up-on-my-shows time. here i come! can't find you anywhere! don't settle for u-verse. x1 from xfinity will change the way you experience tv. just 11 days now until the
iowa caucuses and hillary clinton and bernie sanders virtually tied in polls there. new hampshire, bernie sanders with a lead and in some cases a big lead in polls there. >> now some establishment democratics are sounding the alarm over what they fear a self-declared socialist would do to the rest of the tiblgt. now joining us to discuss, the number two democrat in the house, congressman steny hoyer who is backing hillary clinton for president. play this game with us, called the john and kate game. >> as opposed to dancing with donna. >> it's all about partying. if bernie sanders would win, how concerned are you about the effect down ticket as other democrats are? >> i would be concerned. i think bernie will not bring the same strength hillary clinton will bring to the top of the ticket. >> why? >> because i don't think he has the broad base that hillary clinton has. i think right now in iowa and
new hampshire, relatively unique states in our country, he does have a lot of enthusiasm. bernie is a reasonable, rational, good policy kind of guy. you may disagree with his policies, but he has policies. >> we're starting to hear a lot of the "s" words, socialism -- >> he calls himself, you know, a socialist. i don't think that's a good title to be running for president of the united states. don't think that resonates well with the overwhelming -- >> how do you explain it, if he becomes your nominee, how do you explain it? >> i think we'll explain it that no doubt bernie sanders' policies are preferable to the nonpolicies of the republican candidates. they really aren't discussing very deep policy. but i don't think that's going to happen. i think hillary clinton will be our nominee. i think hillary clinton is going to win the presidency and i think, frankly, whether it's trump orr cruz or whoever it might be, i think the american public are going to see hillary's record, her strength,
her focus on children, her focus on growing the economy, creating jobs, dealing with the environment, and dealing with our international challenges. so i think she's the whole package. i'm not too worried about what will happen because ultimately i think hillary clinton will be our nominee. >> you know about legislating, it's what you've done tore a very long time. bernie sanders put out his plan for health care. it's and a lot of democrats would have supported five years, 10, 15 years ago. we've been talking to the sanders staff, his campaign manager, jeff weaver. we asked, is there any chance this could get passed? their answer, it's not about whether it can get passed. it's about standing up for what you believe in. >> i frankly think that's where bernie sanders is coming from. to some degree, that's where trump is coming from. it's my position. it's not the policies or the depth or whether i can pass it or not, but if you empathize
with me, if you agree with me, agree with my anger or disaeffected and i'm not the guy that's the insider, but ultimately, i think the american public understands, it's not what you say, it's what you can do. it's what you can get done for them, for their families -- >> what percentage chance of getting his plan through congress? >> very small. i'm not going to put a number on it, but very, very small. >> you were in the heart of the -- heart -- >> when we did the affordable care act, as you recall in our alternative in the house, we wanted to have a public option. all the other private sector options, but then there would also be a public option that would affect greater competition. that did not have the votes. when we had a very substantial majority in the house of representatives. so, the chances of that happening, i think, are very small. >> would love to get your take on the state of the republican side of the race right now. sarah palin, the big endorsement
for donald trump. that's been the talk this week. what do you think sarah palin's impact is on the republican race? >> if i'm donald trump, i'm happy. >> if you're ted cruz -- >> i'm not happy. and the reason i'm not happy is because sarah palin represents, for a certain segment of the party, that is the disaffected and the angrier element of their party, and conservative element of their party. although most of their party now is -- sees themselves as a conservative element, certainly of the country, but i think sarah palin brings to donald trump a certain degree of legitimacy, a certain degree of sort of his conservatives. >> is there an equal endorsement on the democratic side like that? >> i don't know that i can think of one right now. obviously, bill clinton is for hillary clinton. >> he's come out already, i think. >> yeah, he's -- >> although, by the way, a lot of people are saying he's unhappy with the way the race is being run. he says hillary clinton needs to
focus more beyond iowa and new hampshire. according to politico every day. >> every day. >> my thought is, they're focusing on every part of the united states. yes, their focus on iowa and new hampshire because they're coming up. they're immediate. they're right in front of them. but there's no doubt that the clinton campaign is focused on the long-term because they believe they'll be there for the long term. obviously, some are focused more on iowa and new hampshire because they're not sure they're going to be this longer. >> congressman, it's great to have you here. you may be with us here all weekend. >> might get snowed in. >> i have an extra bedroom. you can stay at the apartment because you might not want to go back to d.c. right now. >> he laughs and clearly says, i'm out of here. >> i laugh because i shouldn't give an answer to that invitation. >> all about the party. thank you, congressman. >> thank you. ahead for us, an important programming note for you, monday night in iowa, bernie sanders, hillary clinton, martin o'malley

>> the findings say the actual killing of alexander litvinenko was carried out by former kgb and former russian army officer. litvinenko died suddenly in 2006 after drinking a cup of tea laced with poloniu. let's bring in nick roberts. there there's been intrigue surrounding this. this just puts. into the stratosphere. >> reporter: it's been understand that this murder never could have happened without the sponsorship of the russian state. that's what this inquiry lays out. it falls short of saying, here's a direct link between president putin and litvinenko's murderers. what it does say very clearly is this polonium, this radioactive material, can only be made in a nuclear reactor. the nuclear material in russia can only be transferred through
intelligence services with somebody who's above both the intelligence service and above the country's atomic agency. therefore, they say, under past practice, this means most likely, very probably, that president putin must have had a hand in this. this does kick it up to the stratosphere. we've heard from the british government saying the two men accused of the murder are now on an interpol notice, aspects are frozen. russian ambassador in london has been called in to have details of the report explained to him and also question about this report. and the wife or widow, rather, now of litvinenko, has also spoken out about this, criticizing vladimir putin. >> vladimir putin and nick ole
patrushev, personally approved, and i'm very pleased the words my husband spoke on his death bed when he accused mr. putin of his murder, have been proved through an english court with the highest standards of independence and fairness. >> reporter: now, she did also request that the british government kick out all russian agents from britain. >> nick r roberts, thanks. a mother in flint, michigan, said the water is so toxic their cat started losing hair. they release hundreds of e-mails related to the water crisis. moments ago, a big, new

political scientists like to say objects in the mirror are closer than they appear and they are also john kasich. >> what? >> the latest monmouth university poll from new hampshire shows the governor tied for second place at 14%. we should note the new cnn/wmur poll has him much further back at 6%. >> as donald trump and ted cruz trade jabs, could there be an opening now for the governor to be the new establishment alternative. let's ask him. the governor, joining us live from new hampshire. thank you for joining us.
>> thank you. the conglomeration of polls has me actually running in second place, which is just fantastic. there's one or two that ab ra , aberration. we've been rising. a network reporter said, there's the establishment, the anti-establishment and then the kasich lane. i kind of operate in the kasich lane, kate. >> i hope you win this lane, governor, because if you can't cover that lane, you're in big trouble. >> let's talk about -- >> i agree. >> you picked up a big endorsement from former party chair, fergus collin says he likes you because of your positive and consistent tone throughout your whole campaign. what is going right for you in new hampshire because new hampshire is your path to success. >> well, look, i'm going to give you a different narrative. everybody thinks the voters are running around, they're all angry and yelling and screaming. i don't find it. i've done far morton halls that anybody else in this campaign. and what i find is people are a
little frustrated, but it's the narrative you want to give them. i believe these problems are easily solvable if we can get people to be americans rather than idealogs rather than republicans or democrats. people leave the meetings and they basically say, i'm more hopeful. what could be better than getting people to understand if we pull together that these things are solvable. the reason i can say it is because i've done most of these things before. i believe we can do it again. america's problems can be fixed and they can be behind us, on to new challenges. >> you told "the wall street journal" you consider yourself the prince of light and hope. your friend, governor christie, has another take on it. i want you to listen to what the governor said. >> i've known john for a long time. and i've been around when his colleagues talk about him. i've heard john called a lot of things. the prince of light and hope has never been one of them. >> your reaction to governor christie?
>> oh, i love chris. he's a great guy. look, i mean, all of my career, i've been able to put together large groups of people. i've been blessed to put together large groups of people who believe that they're part of something greater than themselves. senator gordon humphrey says our ground game is the best he's seen in 40 years. we have people sleeping on mattresses in our headquarters and heating their food on hot plates. there's a sense there that it's not just about me. the sense that america can be fixed. that we can be more hopeful and positive. my entire career, that's exactly what i've said. if you take ohio, my re-election, where no republican has ever won the white house without winning ohio, and i won 86 out of 88 counties. and i won by over 30 points and i won counties that barack obama handily won because there is a sense of optimism and hope. that's what it's all about in politics. not looking at the rearview mirror and spending all your
time bashing president obama because he's a lame duck. his time is over. let's look at the future. >> governor, looking at the immediate future, you've said that if you get smoked in new hampshire, it's kind of game over for you. do you think there's a chance you won't make it to your home state of ohio? >> no, i really don't. and the reason is, is that, you know, you can see the constant rise. it's because we built the foundation. look, i don't want to brag about what's happening because that's just a wrong attitude and approach. but we've been building this thing all along, telling people that, you know, you build a good foundation, you built the first the second, the third floor and all of a sudden you can get into the light. and people begin to see you. and, and again this ground game, that's where it gets won in new hampshire. i have to run very, very hard, all the way through the tape, and i get a chance to tell my story to the country and i'm very optimistic about what will happen after that. i think we will come out of here.
i think we will be a story. i think we will be strong because time's running out and, you know, i think we're in a very good position. >> so you talk about hope, you talk about a positive message, you talk about not being worth it to bash president obama. sarah palin who just endorsed donald trump she essentially on the stump linked her son's domestic violence arrest with the president's policy on veterans. i wonder if you have a reaction. >> i'm not familiar but what i will tell you is president obama's policy, obamacare, lack of a consistent foreign policy, these are all things we need to talk about, you know, from the standpoint of this is what we're left with, but we need to look -- i tell people i'm on this bus here. i got this campaign bus that lady antebellum used to be on. you can look in the rearview mirrors driving the bus, you don't do very well. i like to look through the windshield, at where we're going.
i think the policies of barack obama are obviously fair game but that's like old news. it's time to move forward. we're going to be -- whoever is president is going to be handed kind of a mess because the president has really not done a good job here as being president of the united states. >> if you look at the "boston globe" today, this is a paper that folks in new hampshire read, you've got almost dueling columnists. one saying kasich is finally getting his moment. but another columnist saying you are too liberal. he tweeted, listening to john kasich, you get the sense he is in the wrong party. outside of new hampshire, are you too liberal? >> look, i've balanced budgets. running surpluses. i've cut taxes more than any governor in the city. we're up 385,000 jobs. i was a lead architect of balancing the federal budget which created jobs and provided surpluses. i'm for school choice, welfare
reform. of which i was intimately involved. kate, there's another side of this. i really believe that people who live in the shadows, once the economy does better, need to be treated. the mentally ill, the drug addicted, the working poor. my tone is really positive. i guess sometimes people can misunderstand that. but i'm as conservative as anybody in this race. and my record proves this. and the results have been great. but you know what, those who live in the shadows, though who have been in prison. i just talked to george will today. he did a big story about the dramatic improvement that's happening in the lives of our prisoners who are getting train and being released and getting their lives back. i happen to believe that everybody's made in the image of the lord and i think it is real conservative to say that all of them should have a chance to pursue their god-given destiny. and to me that is conservative, because opportunity and responsibility fit together. >> we will find out very soon what the folks in iowa and the folks where you are right there in new hampshire have to say. i don't need to tell you the
calendar. >> it's coming. >> governor, thank you very much. >> all right, thank you. >> also a note on another candidate, on another issue on the campaign trail. it's important we wanted to bring this to you. dr. ben carson is speak out after the tragic death of one of his campaign volunteers. this is 25-year-old braden joplin. he was killed tuesday in iowa. when a van carrying four staff members flipped over on a patch of ice and was struck by an oncoming car. an absolute tragedy happening there. here is what dr. carson said remembering joplin last night. >> he wrote a letter requesting to become a student volunteer and just, you know, talking about his heart for america. it was really very touching for, you know, a 25-year-old to have that much feeling about the future of our nation. but, you know, on a personal level, he was just so caring,

new this morn, michigan's governor is under fire. rick schneider has released more than 250 pages of e-mails related to the water crisis in flint, michigan, but what those e-mails really reveal. that officials played down the problem and at one point even called them, quote, initial hiccups. >> the problem, as we know, did not go away. cnn chief medical correspondent sanjay gupta is in flint. you've been there now for a little while. give us a sense what you're seeing in terms of the health problems and now the health care being provided to people suffering. >> well, i'll tell you, john, didn't quite know what to expect. i think in the medical community, lead is considered a sort of "yesterday issue."
something we had dealt with for some time in this country but haven't had to in a while. we put it in the accomplished list of things. something we all learned about in medical school but hadn't seen probably with our own eyes. people who have been affected by lead, who have been poisoned by lead, which is not an unfair word because when lead gets into the body, it essentially is irreversible. for a lot of people, they have sort of the more immediate symptoms. they just don't feel well. they lose appetite. they're very heallethargic. the concern, what we're hearing from a lot of citizens, the medical community, is that the long-term ramifications are significant as well. performance in school, ultimately intellectual development, overall physical development in children in particular. that's what we're seeing and that's what we're -- that's what they're worried about here, that's what they're talking about. >> all right, sanjay gupta for us in flint. glad you are there to get a sense of what's happening. obviously a lot of people with a
lot of questions. thanks, sanjay. >> thank you all so much for joining us. >> "legal view" with ashleigh banfield starts right now. >> hello, everyone, welcome to "legal view." get ready for what could be a blizzard of epic proportions. more than 75 million americans right now are in the path of a monster winter storm that is set to plow into the eastern portion of this country, within 36 hours. our nation's capital is likely to take the biggest hit. from all of the storms in the system. some forecasts are showing d.c. might actually get over 2 feet, 2 feet, of fresh snow. washington, d.c.'s mayor, virgin
