tv   Weekend Early Start  CNN  February 17, 2013 6:00am-7:00am EST

6:00 am
reagan, a hoover and a taft. presidential descendants. i'm are ashleigh banfield, thanks for watching, everyone. from cnn world headquarters in atlanta, this is "early start weekend" good to see you and here we go, again. more snow plablanketing the easn u.s. causing massive pileups. new details of oscar pistorius what his family is telling us about the super star. do you know who is turning 50? a look back at the man, the legend, michael jordan. it is sunday, february 17th. good morning to you.
6:01 am
getting up early today. i'm christi paul in for randi kaye. i want to start with you in vatican city for a beginning and end of sorts here. pope benedict xvi is residing from st. peter's square right now. this is one of the last appearances he will make as pope. on the other end of the spectrum it is audition day for some of his successors. joining me now from rome cnn international correspondent ben wedemen. ben, i want to start with pope benedict. how will he spend his last 11 days now as pope? >> well, right now what we see is a much larger crowd that he's addressing in st. peter's square. numbers as high as 150,000 people on a normal sunday it wouldn't be even half that number. now, he's going to give this angelus prayers and address the
6:02 am
faithful in a number of languages. right now in italian but also be speaking with them in english, polish, german. also today, however, he's going to go into a week of retreat for the period of lent and during that time he will be meeting in prayer and contemplation with many senior bishops and cardinals and, obviously, when that week comes to an end he will resume his normal activities, which include public audiences meeting with senior officials within the vatican and from without, as well. it is going to be a very busy last 1 1 days for benedict xvi before he steps down on the 28th of february at 8:00 p.m. rome time. >> ben, i know we heard a new pope is expected to place by the
6:03 am
end of march, is there a lot of time to pass without having a pope and how do the college of cardinals start that whole process? >> according to vatican regulations, between the time that the papal seat is vacated, either through death or resignation, there is a 15-day period which allows the cardinals who will participate in the conclave to come to rome and sit for the conclave and elect a successor to the pope. in this case, what we're hearing, however, since unlike in previous instances the pope, actually, we know when he's going to leave his position. the senior vatican spokesman yesterday suggested that the conclave could be moved up a bit. we know that the cardinals do want to be done with the job of electing a new pope by palm sunday, which is the 23rd of march. and the vatican officials have said that they are confident there will be a new pope by
6:04 am
easter, which is at the end of march. so, we may find that because of these pressures, that, in fact, the pope will be elected earlier than previously expected. christi? >> i know pope benedictine before he was pope helped put a lot of church leaders in place? does he have any hand in picking his successor, especially when you look at why it is he is stepping down? >> well, directly he will not because he will not be sitting in on that conclave. but it's important to remember the conclave is expected to include 117 cardinals. he has appointed 67 of those. the other 50 were appointed by his predecessor, pope john paul ii. so, directly, no, he will not have any input into the conclave, but, indirectly, because he had such an important role in appointing those cardinals, he will have some
6:05 am
role to play, but not directly, as i said. christi? >> ben wedemen, thank you so much as we look at live pictures there from vatican tv. coming up in our 8:00 hour here, we'll take a closer look at the intrigue and the secrecy in the church, as well as hollywood's obsession with the vatican, you know, it's there. i want to talk to you about what's happening back here at home. a blinding whiteout in detroit. this is on a major freeway. no immediate reports of fatal y fatalities. 44 vehicles that collided saturday on interstate 75. listen it to this couple who was caught in the middle of that i-75 smash up. >> it was just like somebody suddenly threw a white sheet across the windshield and we couldn't see anything.
6:06 am
>> you could hear all the cars banging. >> detroit is not the only place getting snow. here's meteorologist samantha mohr with more of our forecast. >> getting walloped of the snow off the northeast. moved on up into new england and dumping heavy snow and bringing in gusty winds as this low continues to deepen right off the coast of new england. travel on i-95 being discouraged today. winter storm watches in the blue and in the orange we have blizzard watches in place. winds here gusting up to 50 miles per hour today. we're talking heavy snow. not as much as we saw last weekend when we had the top ten record snowfall in boston, but definitely will be getting a good six inches or so throughout today as that snow continues to pile up here. this is not the only weather
6:07 am
story. look at this cold air settling in across the deep south into florida. morning lows well below freezing here. and overnight tonight into tomorrow morning, the coldest night of the season so far, we're expecting to see that hard freeze continue. bad news for all of the crops in florida, especially that citrus crop and it's going to feel, just if you're out and about in southern florida as you head out the door this morning, we're talking wind chill factor in the 20s. so, a whole different change here as the cold mass settles in here across the eastern u.s. we'll be following this and let you know how it will affect your travel as you head through today. >> sam, thank you so much. i want to take you to washington now and the first draft of the president's immigration plan. the draft sent to several federal agencies includes an eight-year path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. also in there, increases in border security and an expansion
6:08 am
of the e-verify system. now in the senate, the so-called group of eight are also working towards concrete legislation on immigration. a white house spokesman says the president's plan is a way forward if congress fails to act. marco rubio, meanwhile, is part of the gang of eight and he says the president's plan would be "dead on arrival." in congress. he released the statement yesterday saying president obama's leaked immigration proposal is disappointing to those of us working on a serious solution. he went on to say this legislation is half-baked and seriously flawed. he slammed the president's immigration plan, as you heard, gave the republican response to the state of the union and right now he's in the middle east visiting israel and jordan talking to leaders in both of those countries and president obama is scheduled to travel to israel next month. we're hearing from jesse jackson jr.'s family as they speak in support of the former congressman just a day after details of his plea bargain were
6:09 am
made public. jackson admitted to misusing campaign funds for personal expenses such as a $43,000 watch and fur coats, apparently. his brother talked about how jackson is handling these recent events. >> still under a strict regimen with the doctors and he's had todite wito deal with his health issues, as well as the legal issues. we ask that you continue to be mindful that he's not able to speak for himself. >> jesse jackson jr. stepped aside to deal with his health problems. he could be sentenced to as many as five years in prison. let's go to los angeles now where some are showing support for cop killer christopher dorner. the group protested outside the police department yesterday what dorner did was wrong by killing four people and injuring others, they still believe his accusations of racism and unfair
6:10 am
treatment by his former department. the protesters say police corruption needs to be addressed. >> i think there are a lot of honest policemen out there trying to serve the people. but it is just atrocious what mr. dorner did and we don't want it to happen, again. >> he died from a single bullet last week. oscar pistorius is in shock over the news of him killing his girlfriend. we'll bring you the news, stay close. i also try to keep my costs down. what's your plan? ishares. low cost and tax efficient. find out why nine out of ten large professional investors choose ishares for their etfs. ishares by blackrock. call 1-800-ishares for a prospectus which includes investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. read and consider it carefully before investing. risk includes possible loss of principal.
