3:14 pm
through the area and left the region reeling. there is video of the most powerful tornado going through power lines, damaging homes. the national weather service tells me that tornado was an ef-4. it had winds up to 1 880 miles hour. in all, 1500 homes were danmage, and in reality it was only a matter of seconds before the siren went off and the tornado hit. >> we got in the bathtub. we were in the center bathroom in our house, and all of a sudden it was like a train went over the top of us and you could just hear things vaulting into the roof, and it was like pieces of wood and everything came through and you could hear the house shake and shimmy. >> eight people were killed in their cars in nearby garland, 11 in all on saturday in north texas. the one place that did not see any deaths is actually the neighborhood i'm standing in right now, although the damage was extensive. the family has been nice enough

investigation. in cleveland, meanwhile, a grand jury has declined to indict a rookie police officer or his partner for their roles in the fatal shooting of tamir rice, an african-american boy who was holding what turned out to be a pellet gun. >> believing he was about to be shot was mistaken. he has a reasonable belief -- he had reason pho fear for his life. . the officer had no way of knowing the gun was fake. the family members say they're disappointed but not surprised by the decision. still ahead, the toll of gr grueling and crowded campaign schedule is taking on the contenders. but first, what does the president plan to do in his final year of office? huh.

with cuba. and an iran nuclear deal. he is hoping to push an aggressive agenda including potential reaction on guns. the criminal justice reform moving ahead with plans to draw down and speaking of cuba, it's also expected the president will make a landmark journey to the island before leaving office, a first for a sitting u.s. president in almost 90 years. but experts say there is little chance that the president will get it all done. >> the most important thing to remember about a lame duck president is that you can take the president's priorities for that final year and the odds are enormous that he is going to achieve most of them. >> take the war in afghanistan. the president campaigned on ending it. but conditions on the ground and the rise of isis will prevent him from keeping that promise. another key strategy for 2016
3:24 pm
for the president will be targeting the gop frontrunner on the campaign trail. >> no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than the donald. and that's because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter. like, did we fake the moon landing? >> the president, of course, has made no secret of his feelings for the billionaire, targeting his lack of experience. but the president hopes to liven up the candidate hillary clinton. >> even if he has his differences with the clintons, he knows that without a democratic president, much of his legacy is going to be repealed or reduced. and no president wants to see
3:25 pm
that. >> reporter: make no mistake about it, doug. they need each other. clinton needs obama on the campaign trail because he's still popular with democrats to say nothing about the fact she's polling much, much weaker with african-american voters than he did in 2008 and 2012. he needs her be, obviojecher, o in november and keep his foreign policy. >> thank you, doug. down day on the markets today. the dow lost 24, the s&p 500 was down 4.5. nasdaq dropped 7.5. the seventh installment of the "star wars" staaga is breakg box office records. it took only 12 hours to earn $1 billion worldwide. it also shattered christmas day box office records as well as opening day records both in america and worldwide. the movie has yet to open in china, the world's second

america's election headquarters in depth tonight. there are five weeks until the iowa caucuses, but most of the presidential candidates have been on the campaign trail long enough that the final month before the kickoff will feel like the home stretch. the packed schedule can take a toll and that can lead to costly mistakes. chief washington correspondent james rosen looks at the impact of campaign strength. >> reporter: time and again the same faces square off at debates, criss-cross on the road, until the sheer grind catches up to them and even the politicians driven half insane give in to the strain. >> i have a lot of things i could be doing instead of sitting around being miserable, listening to people demonize me and me demonize them. >> he just doesn't feel that comfortable on the campaign
3:31 pm
trail. there are certainly trivial things that come up on the campaign, but there are moments of truth where the campaign reveals various things about their rigorous style. >> it can suffer a verbal breakdown. >> is there a difference between the removal and return? >> in this process, a meeting with the voters, the voters usually find out who you really are. >> john kasich. so kasich is in this debate and he starts really complaining and can't stop himself about not getting the air time he thinks he deserves. >> mr. baker, everybody -- everybody can talk about taxes. i think you're coming to me -- >> i promised i would come to you. >> i hate to crash the party, mr. baker, but it's fair. >> subjected to heightened scrutiny about his past, the
3:32 pm
unflappable ben carson appears to be, well, flappable. >> and it was my kindergarten teacher who said i peed in my pants. it's ridiculous. >> donald trump says whatever he wants, whenever he wants. >> i would bomb the [ bleep ] out of them. >> as we see other candidates make comments that really show their fatigue or personality on a different level than they're portraying, that's been pretty honest. where donald trump has been pretty honest about who he is, and he's up front. >> reporter: though even analysts say trump has said certain things he wishes he could take back. >> he's going, i don't remember. i don't remember. >> i think even he understood that was a problematic moment for him. even trump understands there is a risk of himself going too far. >> voters saw senator marco rubio repel criticism from his old friend jeb bush by taking
3:33 pm
the high road. yet as the race narrowed, rubio seemed to overcome his qualms about going on the attack. >> the cuts that senator cruz supported would have left us with an even smaller air force and smaller navy than the one we'll be left with. >> reporter: fielding questions about her server, democrat hillary clinton tried to use humor. >> did you wipe the server? >> what, with a cloth or something? >> it made her sound devious. in other words, it reinforced the criticism of her. >> what we haven't seen in this cycle is one of these moments completely capsizing a campaign. as for ed muskie's terms or howard dean in 2004. but the cycle is only about halfway through. doug? >> plenty of time. james, thank you very much. politicians sit on the top of gallup's poll of most admired men for 2015. president obama is at number

it's a housewife who's in control of the finances. actually, any wife, husband, or human person can use progressive's name your price tool to take control of their budget. and while the men do the hard work of making money, she can get all the car insurance options her little heart desires. or the women might do the hard work of making money. [ chuckling ] women don't have jobs. is this guy for real? modernizing car insurance with -- that's enough out of you! the name your price tool, only from progressive. where is your husband?
3:38 pm
it's not the first time he's demonstrated a penchant for sexism. and siem no i'm not sure anybod again, is surprised that he just keeps pushing the envelope. >> hillary clinton speaking in iowa about -- you guessed it -- donald trump and his latest line of criticism, that being what she says is his sexism. and he vows to fight back in the worst possible way about that, quote, unquote, sexism. listen up. >> i think he is fair game, because his presidency was really considered to be very troubled, to put it mildly. i think that bill clinton was -- you know, turned out to be a liability against obama. one day they ran against each other. >> and trump was more direct in a tweet he fired off this morning. it said, quote, if hillary thinks she can unleash her husband with this terrible
3:39 pm
record of woman abuse by playing the woman card on me, she's wrong. senior writer, and national correspondent for the "washington post" and syndicated columnist. if this turns out to be a trump nominee versus hillary clinton race, i can imagine this race descending deeper and deeper into the more als. >> you have to get a shovel to find it. this is all aimed at the republican nominating process. by taking her on as the frontrunner, he elevates himself above all the others. he's been shooting at all the others for six months, and now he says, i'm done. i've been able to knock 'em all down. i've got a 21-point lead, which he boasts about all the time, and now he's going to show he's
3:40 pm
the man. in a way it's sort of to get the country prepared for him to be the standard bear. this is a bold and risky proposition way to do this, but i think it works for him in the sense that it makes everyone else look small, no one has talked about anybody else, and in one sense it says to the republican electorate, we've talked about this, you've talked about quietly. rand paul raised it at the beginning of his campaign and then he backed i am the only guy who will do this and who has sort of the moxie to go ahead and do it and not be afraid. i think this is all about him rising above the other candidates on the republican side. it's not an engagement in a real general election campaign yet. he's using her as a foil, and i must say effectively. >> charles said it's bold and
3:41 pm
risky, but indeed it's not that in adverse circumstances. listen to what mike huckabee said this morning about this strategy. >> i think the clintons have soc some vulnerability they're seizing upon. after seven years of obama, a lot of republicans would take bill clinton back, warts and all, just because at least he understood how to govern. >> could this backfire on trump? >> i don't see how it possibly could in a republican primary. not only is he raising himself above the others as the presumptive nominee, he's also addressing the single biggest fear that republicans have about him, which is that he couldn't take on hillary clinton in a general election. beyond that, i think the comments today are sort of a bank shot making a point he's been making all along about how there is some sort of media double standard and how they cover one side versus how they cover the other.
3:42 pm
>> steve, there is another risk component for trump, and it is that millions upon millions of americans unfortunately can relate to the experience that hillary clinton went through, k being victimized or being betrayed by a significant other. >> i think if karen is right about how he should run, this is in my view the most ineffective view running against hillary clinton that one can imagine. that isn't to say bill clinton shouldn't be fair game. of course, he's fair game. of course, what he did was fair game. but it's not going to be to the advantage of republicans to make this argument about hillary clinton. remember, at the height of the lewinsky scandal, her approval rating was 65%. it's 45% today. if republicans want to critique hillary clinton, they ought to use her policies. they ought to buy a copy of her book "hard choices" and send it to everyone in the country where she boasts about bill clinton's
3:43 pm
foreign policy. not to do this where she can be sympathetic. it's a bit hypocritical for donald trump, which isn't anything new, but he befriended the clintons after these behaviors that he's now so troubled by. he was hanging around with the clintons, he was supporting them, he was supporting terry mccall, their close friend, in 2009. this is somebody who is close to the clintons and now we're supposed to believe he's deeply troubled by this behavior? >> does that line resonate with voters in the key swing states that will decide this election? karen? >> bill clinton remains pretty popular out there, and he was -- trump is right about one thing, he was a double-edged sword in his wife's 2008 presidential campaign. he did a lot of things that made life more difficult for her, not easier. but those were all self-inflicted wounds. you're not going to sort of get
3:44 pm
in there by attacking him, if this is going to happen he's going to do it to himself. >> trump is not without a lot of praise from various women. the "washington post" had a piece on november 24 in which they wrote, quote, many women who have worked closely with trump say he was a corporate executive ahead of his time in providing career advancement for women. while many say he could be boorish, his company nurtured and promoted women in a male-dominated industry. several women said they appreciated how trump granted them entry to a new playing field. >> i don't think it gets played out yet. it's too early. if trump is the nominee, this is how it will play out in the summer. the next step for trump is to not be attacking bill unnecessarily, but either by implication or within, it will be direct to attack her. right now she says the new
3:45 pm
feminist dispensation, if there is an accusation of rape, you have to believe the accuser. you can't victimize the victim. at the same time, if you're trump and you want to attack her, what you say is, yes, but when it affected you and your husband, you are the one who went and directly attacked the women involved. that's where the attack lies. everybody knows that. it's not happened yet, but that's the next step if it continues. i think it's probably a little early for that, but that's where it goes. it's risky, yes. it's not going to help him with the independents and the affiliated. it could go either way. but that's the essence of the attack. next up, the chaos in the middle east. jeb bush: donald, you know, is great at the one-liners. but he's a chaos candidate.
3:46 pm
and he'd be a chaos president. two months ago, donald trump said that isis was not our fight. donald trump: let syria and isis fight. why are we... why do we care? let isis and syria fight. jeb bush: he said that hillary clinton would be a great negotiator with iran. donald trump: hillary's always surrounded herself with very good people. i think hillary would do a good job. jeb bush: and he gets his foreign policy experience from the shows. chuck todd: who do you talk to for military advice right now? donald trump: well, i watch the shows. i mean, i really see a lot of great, you know, when you watch your show and all of the other shows... jeb bush: i don't know if that's saturday morning, or sunday morning. donald, you're not going to be able to insult your way to the presidency. that's not going to happen. if i'm president, i'll be a commander-in-chief, not an agitator-in-chief or a divider-in-chief... that i will lead this country in a way that will create greater security and greater safety. announcer: right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message.
3:47 pm
come happy birthday. i just had a heart attack... and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him. a choice to take brilinta. a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. and every day for as long as my doctor tells me.
3:48 pm
don't miss a day of brilinta.
3:49 pm
you're looking at live -- not live video. video from this morning of iraqi soldiers raising their national flag over the government center of the recaptured city of ramadi, a strategic city about 70 miles west of baghdad. at the time this occurred, colonel steve ward who is a spokesman for the u.s. led coalition in iraq said quote we congratulate the iraqi security forces for their success against isil ramadi. the fox news contributor general bob scales had a nuanced version of that. let's listen. >> we are making advice
3:50 pm
advances against isis in syria. for the first time in a long time our air strikes are becoming more and more effective because of the better coordination with the rebel forces on the ground, but we are a long way, a long way from being able to achieve any lasting strategic effects there. >> let's bring in the panel again. steve hayes, is this a seed change, a seminole moment in recaptures iraq. battle against isis. >> absolutely not. a good thing to have recaptured ramadi. it matters how ramadi was recaptured and the extent of the reliance, still, of the core remnants and other shiite militia groups even if the iraqi security forces were trying to hide their involvement will not be lost on iraqis who live in the region. and, you know, you had abady saying today we are moving in connection with to mosul. if he moves too quickly if you have the iraqi security forces move too quickly to take mosul who is going to
3:51 pm
be left to hold ramadi. by definition you also have to hold the shiite militia groups. if steve warren says this is a proud moment for iraq, my question is it also a proud moment for iran? >> this is an important component as well that the u.s. air force is absolutely instrumental in retaking this kind of territory. it took, aaccording to our pentagon producer over 600 u.s. air strikes since july to help forces to get near the center of ramadi. none. >> there are grounds for optimism. it's part of a trend line that is working against the islamic state. it is -- they have now had to give up something like 40% of the territory that they gained last year. and also, part of this effort were the sunni tribesmen who were trained by the united states who are a part of the strategy here and it did look like they were, in fact, able to
3:52 pm
function alongside the iraqi forces. >> charles, it appears to me that the obama administration certainly has gotten the message at least to some degree that they need to step up their efforts in this part of the world. take a look at the latest poll do you approve o. disapprove of the way barack obama is hanged ling terrorism. approve 30% and disapprove 68%. do you approve or disapprove of the way obama is handling isis? >> look, one of the reasons for disapproval is that we have an administration boasting of 600 air strikes since july, do the math. that's an average of three a day. this isn't exactly an air campaign. three air strikes a day. i think, look, it's a good thing that we have ramadi, i don't think there is a lot of evidence that the sunnies were involved in this. there was some, but we know it's overwhelmingly the iraqi army, which is shiite dominated, the government is shiite dominated which itself is iran dominated. you think the importance here is not strategic,
3:53 pm
scales is right. it's not going to tip the balance. but i think what's important in a war like this, it's all about psychology. it's what usama bin laden talked about, who is the strong horse? who is the weak horse? the more you get reports and stories of isis losing sinjar, losing there saddam in the north of syria which was recaptured by the rebels with the kurds, lost by isis, it was a source of electricity, it's a source of power, it cuss off some of their roots. -- routes. the fact that you have ramadi and other areas. if the story line changes to isis which expanded exponentially over 18 months is now shrinking and retreating that, i you think, is a huge psychological blow. it's got a logical movement. the millennial movements that are bringing on the apocalypse live on the idea of success. the minute you can reverse the story, consistently, even if they aren't in and
3:54 pm
of themselves steamingly decisive but one after another and you change the psychology, i think it undermines isis and that sets the table for ultimately taking them out. but it's a long process. >> interestingly, the state department announced today an effort to step up its campaign to battle isis's propaganda. a campaign which has been pretty much a miserable failure. also today steve the administration announced that the bag gram air base in afghanistan will be kept open indefinitely. not exactly an encouraging sign of progress in afghanistan. >> i think it would be great if ramadi turns out to be the turning point that we all hope it will be. i just think there are very few reasons to believe that it will be. it would certainly be the first time in the battle against isis that that was the case. when you look at what's happening in iraq, what's happening in syria in the context of the broader global jihadiist movement, you have seen the number of jihadiists around the world explode. i mean, we are talking orders of magnitude more
3:55 pm
than there were five years ago, more than there were 10 years ago, exactly the time that we're celebrating a potential success in ramadi, you are seeing, as you point out, the rise of the taliban in afghanistan. at a time when the administration had told us in effect that was basically taking care of. and you are seeing isis and isis adherence, isis. places across the globe that you are seeing this continued rise of the global jihadiist movement. >> the keeping up of the air base, keeping it open is an admission by the obama administration huge mistake evacuating iraq all at once. we could have stayed behind with an air base or two, and that would have made a decisive difference in the rise of isis. i think obama understands it was a terrible mistake he doesn't want to repeat in afghanistan. >> that's it for the panel. stay tuned to see two toddlers caught in a sticky situation.
