3:00 pm
>> what do you think, it was fun doing the show. >> set your dvrs, never miss an episode of "the five." "special report" is next. we are coming to you tonight from america's election headquarters, here in new york city. for fox news coverage of the new york presidential primary. this is a fox news alert. the city that's the entertainment, media and financial capital of the world is also the political capital. as front-runners donald trump and hillary clinton try to solidify their standings and beat back challenges from the runner-up in the new york primary. ed henry here in new york with hillary clinton seeking a big win in her adopted home state. carl cameron at trump tower where the question is not whether trump will win, but by
3:01 pm
how much. and we begin with martha mccallum. >> we're talking to voters as they exit polling locations to see what's driving the vote this time here in new york state. the first findings from the fox news exit poll, these are early numbers. first, republicans in the empire state want somebody from outside the political establishment. obviously a big theme in the election. in fact nearly two-thirds of the voters today say they want an outsider, a record high for this primary cycle. as we see trump and cruz battle over the voters, we'll get a better sense of who they went with as the night progresses. keep in mind, everybody, that the polls in upstate new york do not even open until noon. there's no voting on your way to work. we're going to get a lot of late numbers coming in, in this particular primary this evening. here's what we got so far. how did new york gop voters feel about their choices? look at these numbers, 25%, say
3:02 pm
they would not vote for donald trump. about the same number say they would not vote for john kasich. if it's cruz, as the nominee, 40% say they would never pull the lever for ted cruz. overall on the other side, democrats feel a whole lot better about their choices for their party's nominee. most democrats think that this campaign so far has energized their party. only 27% of them say they think this campaign so far has been divisive. interesting stuff in that one. how about this? the city that calls wall street home has very little affection for the bankers in this town. sanders has worked hard on that notion, look at the numbers, 29% of new yorkers say that wall street helps the economy. not even a third. and more than 60% of new york democrats, 60% of new york democrats say they believe wall street hurts the u.s. economy quite revealing. hispanics, let's take a look at that vote.
3:03 pm
clinton won them in texas and in florida. sanders won them in nevada and illinois. today they're in clinton's column in her adopted home state of new york. she gets 57%, sanders gets 43%. we've seenuge rallies in this city over the last several days, full of young people. he had 28,000 people at a rally in brooklyn. look at his support. once again, with the under-30 crowd. they turned out for him in the streets and turns out tonight as well. on clinton's side, she continues to do well among those who want a president who is going to continue president obama's policies. no big surprise there. sanders gets heavy backing from those who want more liberal policies, also not a big surprise there. but we've got a lot more numbers coming in as people come out of the polls throughout the evening. we'll have a lot more for you. great news for wall street, huh? >> terrible. >> martha. thank you. a trump win here in new york is in little doubt. but the margin of victory will say a lot about whether the
3:04 pm
businessman can take care of business and preserve his ability to lock up the nomination, before the gop convention. chief political correspondent carl cameron is at trump tower tonight. good evening. >> thanks, brett. if donald trump is to clinch the nomination before the convention three months from now, he knows he has to have a blow-out win tonight. at new york city's central synagogue, republican presidential front-runner donald trump cast a ballot for himself. confident of a victory tonight. >> i think it's a great honor for new york, new york is a special place. >> trump is trying to make his campaign better after months of criticism that his team is ill prepared. >> recently hired convention manager and new political guru rick wiley who ran scott walker's new campaign are the new shot callers in charges of $28 million of ads and organizers in the final states, including california. trump's national field director
3:05 pm
stewart jolly resigned yesterday and campaign manager cory lewandoski remains. the new regime is staffing up and has hired veteran gop election lawyer bill mcginley to wrap up the delegates required for the nomination. >> when you bring other people in, i could see some people, their feelings get a little bit hurt. i don't know most of these people. they're field people. but frankly, you know, we're at a position where we would like to see if we could close it out. >> in new york, the billionaire led senator ted cruz and john case being by 2-1, in recent polls. a majority is key in new york's 95-delegate contest. a statewide winner with more than 50%, takes 14 at-large delegate, the other 81 come three at a time from new york's 27 congressional districts. kasich targeted specific congressional districts and hopes to pick up a dozen delegates. cruz isdown playing expectations and could have a rough night in
3:06 pm
trump's home state. trump ended his empire state run with a huge rally in buffalo, slammed john kasich for only winning ohio and mocked ted cruz and his mocking of family values. >> i was down there and i watched our police and our firemen down on 7-eleven, down at the world trade center after it came down. >> polls close at 9:00 eastern. the tabulation of the north country comes in fast within an hour and new york shortly after that new york has 10% of the overall republican vote in the empire state. and after that, well we should have a good idea between between 11:00 and 12:00 of the size of trump's win. >> carl cameron at trump tower, thank you. hillary clinton is hoping to restore some sense of inevitability, that has been eclipsed by the insurgent
3:07 pm
campaign of vermont senator bernie sanders. chief white house correspondent ed henry is covering the democrats in new york. >> bernie sanders talking tough about preventing hillary clinton about being crowned with the nomination, still shopping short of guaranteeing victory tonight. >> strolling the streets of manhattan, bernie sanders poured cold water on talk of a clinton coronation tonight. >> we're feeling very good. there's a large voter turn-out despite the impediment of three million people not being able to participate. i think we're going to do just fine. >> sanders referring to the fact that new york is not an open primary. so independents who have helped fuel his rise cannot vote in the democratic race, something hillary clinton is hoping will help her win tonight. expressing confidence as she was joined by her husband, former president bill clinton, at a polling place near their home. casting her own ballot she
3:08 pm
boasted about canvassing every corner of her adopted home state. >> i love new york and this has been a joy. during the last two weeks to be here all over the state. >> in fact, clinton has invested so much time here, anything less than a decisive win could show she really is feeling the bern. and on the eve of the pivotal moment in the democratic race, vice president joe biden weighed in with a not so subtle reference to clinton and the rest of the field. >> the so called goofy uncle joe. i beat every republican in every poll that i was running. if you notice that my favorite building is higher than anybody else running for party. >> even if clinton cleans up, the longer-than-expected primary may have taken a heavy toll on her, with the general election with all-important independent voters, a new "wall street journal"/nbc news poll finding 27% of independent voters have a positive view of clinton, a drop of 15 points. and 62% have a negative view.
3:09 pm
with sanders swearing off slams over the email controversy, top democrats believe he's doing further damage to her shaky numbers on truth worthiness, with a barrage or hen wall street ties. >> to hell with corporate america, we don't need their money. >> sanders has jumped to pennsylvania, one of five states voting next tuesday and is outspending clinton 2-1 on the air waves in pennsylvania and connecticut. is running ads in indiana and oregon. that may not matter if clinton wins big now. >> i think in the end, it's going to be a good day for senator clinton. >> bottom line is that bernie sanders if he falls just short can try to spin the expectations game tonight. it's late in the game and he's going to have to start winning the big states, there's may be a bombshell developing, reports that over 50,000, maybe as many as 300,000 democrats in brooklyn were purged from the rolls. mayor de blasio has put out a
3:10 pm
statement saying they're trying to get to the bottom of it. the perception that numerous voters may have been disenfranchised underminus the entire electoral process. there's some african-american leaders saying it could be racial. hillary clinton has a preedge in the polls with african-american voters. ed, thank you. let's get insight on what's happening today in new york and how it affects the campaign. syndicated columnist charles krauthammer joins us from washington. president obama is being very critical of the current political climate. here's what he's saying. here's our political system continues to be dysfunctional, it's fascinating the degree to which the single-most important question i'm asked these days from other world leaders is what's going on with your current election. the current presidential election is the tip of a broader
3:11 pm
iceberg of dysfunction that we've seen. charles, your thoughts? >> i'm sure the president means well, but it's rather rich coming from the most polarizing president probably of our time. this is man who has overridden congress so many times, ignored it, overridden it, been slapped down by the supreme court there was a case just yesterday overriding the congress on immigration. overriding it on post-facto amendments to his own health care law. overriding it on justice reform acting incredibly high-handedly. the he did the one thing you don't do in our system, one sixth of the economy, one of the most sweeping pieces of legislation in our history. he did what fdr and lbj and all the others ever did. when they pass something that important, they always mean social security, medicare,
3:12 pm
medicaid, civil rights, they always had support from the other side. obama disdained it he never got it. and the result is we have a polarized country that is largely the result of his condescension to congress and his arrogance in his own own unilateralism. >> another statement from the administration raising eyebrows, vice president joe biden coming down hard on israel. here the vice president's comments at a washington dinner last night. talking about israel's government. they're moving us, more importantly israeli in the wrong direction. notwithstanding our sometimes overwhelming frustration. >> with the israeli government. we have an obligation to push them as hard as we can toward what we know in their gut is the only ultimate solution, a two-state solution. >> to be fair, the vice president did criticize
3:13 pm
palestinians in that speech as well. but he spent a lot of time, charles, on the israelis. >> this is near orwellian. the idea that the israelis don't know in their gut that a two-state solution is required. what the israelis know in their gut is that a two-state solution today, is impossible for two reasons. number one, they know the palestinians are not ready to accept and recognize an israeli or jewish state. hillary clinton said that as much as in her debate last week. when she said to bernie sanders, was critical of israel, why didn't yasser arafat accept the two-state solution? the compromise? incredibly generous. including the handing over of half of jerusalem. that the clinton administration and the israelis accepted and that arafat walked away from. their history of walking away from two-state solutions is unremitting and they have not changed. there's a second factor here.
3:14 pm
do they not understand in the middle east of today, roiled and racked by revolution and civil war everywhere. there's going to be a palestinian state stable and reliable like switzerland living side by side with israel is preposterous. even if you get a change of heart. even if you get an agreement, how do you know that government will last six months? you've got syria, imploding. lebanon run by hezbollah, iraq imploding. you cannot have a solution. today under these conditions, that's what the israelis know and that's why there's such frustration. it's not their fault. >> charles, as always, thank you. a huge blow tonight to president obama's promise, that his health care reform plan would offer more choices to customers. the nation's biggest health insurer, united health, says it will cut its participation in public exchange to only a handful of states next year.
3:15 pm
united's ceo says the company expects to lose $1 billion this year and last, he cites the higher risk of obamacare customers with the decision to get out. stocks were mixed. both closed at highs for the year. the nasdaq lost 20. up next, a taliban starts its spring offensive. of a deadly bang. here's what's some fox affiliates around the country are covering tonight. fox 30 in jacksonville. federal judges reject a push by democratic congressman karin brown to throw out the current map for florida's congressional districts, she says it dilutes votesing rights for minorities. the judge said brown did not prove her case. fox 11 in los angeles, health officials confirm a batch of mosquitos in sun valley tested positive for the west nile virus. authorities are warning residents mosquitos are active and capable of spreading the infection to people. and this is a live look at
3:16 pm
oklahoma city, our affiliate fox 25, the big story there tonight -- remembering the victims of the 1995 murrow federal building bombing. 168 people died in the attack 21 years ago today. after timothy mcveigh parked a truck filled with fertilize anywhere downtown oklahoma city and set the fuse to make it explode. residents could feel the blast for miles. it remains the largest case of domestic terrorism in u.s. history. a memorial now stands in place of the federal building, that's your live look outside the beltway from "special report." we're outside the beltway, too, we'll be right back to new york in a minute. hey buddy, you're squashing me!

it a i peer nas the taliban are making good on their promise to stage large-scale attacks during their spring offensive. militants hit a government security agency today in the afghan capital of kabul. correspondent connor powell shows us what happened. >> the taliban launched a devastating attack early tuesday morning. it began with a massive car bomb outside a training base for elite afghan forces. taliban fighters then rushed in. gunfire erupted as afghan soldiers battled insurgents for
3:21 pm
hours. at least 28 people were killed. more than 300 wounded. >> windows and glass, several people were wounded. in the market. the situation was very, very tense. >> this was the bloodiest attack on kabul in years. and it comes just days after the taliban announced the start of their spring military offensive. the militant group is plagued with internal divisions, following the announcement of taliban leader mullah omar's death last summer. younger taliban fighters want to keep attacking while older ones have publicly voiced support for peace talks with the afghan government. the violence shows no sign of letting up. according to the united nations, 2015 was the bloodiest year on record. last week, secretary of state john kerry visited kabul to help resolve a year-long dispute between afghan president ashraf ghani and other government ministers. while there, kerry reaffirmed american support for afghanistan.
3:22 pm
and urged the taliban to lay down their weapons. >> we call on the taliban to enter into a peace process. a legitimate process. a real process. that provides equal rights, protection for all afghans. >> despite years of bloodshed and violence, u.s. has stopped short of labelling the taliban a terror organization in hopes of one day negotiating a peace agreement with the group. 15 years on, that's looking less and less likely. brett? >> connor powell, thank you. a syrian opposition coalition is blaming president bashar al assad for airstrikes on rebel-held towns that killed 44 civilians today. the coalition says the attacks justify its decision, to suspend participation in the geneva peace negotiations. russia says extremists have taken control of the opposition and hijacked the talks. president obama talked with russian leader vladimir putin monday about syria. president obama said he told putin their two countries need
3:23 pm
to be in sync about maintaining the current partial cease-fire. while negotiations continue. the white house read-out of the conversation did not mention recent harassment of american military vessels by russian war planes. president obama right now is on his way to saudi arabia, for what could be some uncomfortable or even difficult talks with leaders of the kingdom. correspondent kevin corke is live in riyadh, saudi arabia, tonight where it's 1:00 a.m. wednesday morning there. >> the long list of topics to be covered by the president over the next couple of days in the saudi kingdom continues to grow. there's no question he'll talk about the increased cooperation between the u.s. and our saudi partners and other gulf cooperation council members and certainly the topic of isis in syria will be the among the most important topics discussed here. however, it's the yet-to-be released 28 pages of the
3:24 pm
congressional 9/11 report and the suggestion by some that the saudi government may have borne responsibility in the attacks that's making things very difficult as the president makes his way here. for his part, the commander-in-chief hasn't made it clear yet if he's actually read the 28 pages in particular. though he says he is generally aware of what is in them. still he says the u.s. has to be careful with any release of this material and the process, brett, has to be orderly. >> what can end up happening is if you just dump a whole bunch of stuff out there, that nobody knows exactly how credible it is, was it verified or not. it could end up creating a problem. >> the point is it's been a long time. >> that i will acknowledge. >> and hopefully this process will come to a head fairly soon. >> a couple of moving parts, also to report tonight, brett, south carolina senator lindsey graham has made it clear he will place on hold legislation that would find foreign governments responsible and even economically liable, if they were found responsible for
3:25 pm
sponsoring terror acts, this as house speaker paul ryan has expressed skepticism about the bill. saying it could jeopardize an important relationship with a key ally. as you know and this is important, the president has made it clear he would veto any such legislation, were it to make its way to his desk. brett? >> kevin corke, live wednesday morning in riyadh. two u.s. senators are asking president obama to investigate whether the pentagon misled congress about its handling of sexual assault cases, judiciary committee chairman chuck grassley and kisten gillibrand cite inaccuracies and omissions in military records. used to oppose a bill to strip senior military officers in decisions of power over whether or not to prosecute sexual assault crimes. security or privacy? the fbi versus apple, when we come back. it's your home.

the senate has passed bipartisan legislation to boost airport security and extend consumer protections. the vote on the aviation bill today was 95-3. the measure also establishes criminal penalties for the reckless use of drones. that bill now goes onto the house. once again we look at the increasingly fine line of the need for security and the right to privacy. it's an argument that's taking place from coast to coast. but it's centered in washington and focused on something you may know very well. and you may own. correspondent doug mckelway has the story tonight. >> fbi's frustration with apple over its refusal to access a san bernardino terrorist encrypted iphone is a problem many law enforcement agencies are facing. >> we have been locked out. 67 apple devices lawfully seized pursuant to the investigation of

not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you.

3:40 pm
>> senator clinton said she could wrap up the whole nomination today. >> i'm afraid she's going to be disappointed. >> candidates in the new york primary. stats about new york quickly. there are almost 5.8 million registered democrats across the state of new york. 53% of all registered new york democrats reside within new york city. there are about 2.7 million registered republicans. 17% of all new york republicans reside in new york city. that's setting the table for tonight. let's bring in our panel. tucker carlson, host of "fox & friends" weekend. katherine ran pel, opinion writer at the "washington post" and dana perino, co-host of "the five." >> we heading in the adopted home state of hillary clinton. the home state of donald trump, they seem poised for big nights. what are you seeing from the ex-ith polls. >> i think the rough outlines, what we thought was going to happen will be proved true.
3:41 pm
probably by night's end, i think it's going to be an early night judging by these numbers. what jumps out at me is the future of democratic party and bernie sanders. once again sanders has swept, no the just carried, but swept overwhelmingly people under 45. this mirror what is you've seen in state after state in primary after caucus across the democratic contests. it tells you something simple, which is you want to know what the party is going to look like? ten years from now? look at these numbers. this is really the last stand of the old democratic establishment. which is basically rooted in identity politics. look like me, vote for me. he's got an economic message that their future. it's a radical one, but it's real and not going away. >> katherine we're looking to see if ted cruz and john kasich can get any delegates out of new york, it's all about the math. >> the numbers suggest that trump is going to sweep the overall state numbers. he'll get the majority of the
3:42 pm
state, the state delegates, we don't have the number for the individual congressional districts, there's still a chance that the other candidates could eke out some delegates on that level. >> dana what do you think it means for the race for the nomination? >> i agree with tucker about the democratic party, i think it's going to be easier for them to heal. and get behind hillary clinton if she is the nominee. the republicans, that's not going to be as easy, in the exit polls you see significant number of people on the republican side, saying that if trump is the nominee, i won't vote for him in the general. same for ted cruz, same for john kasich. this a republican party that's deeply divided. we've had about two weeks between the votes, it's been kind of a slower month. about to pick up. and i think that the divisions are only going to continue. >> you have the story about the trump campaign shake-up in the politico. a shake-up that's roilg donald
3:43 pm
trump, told senior staffers at a saturday meeting he wants his recent hires to take the reins in upcoming states, giving them a $20 million budget for key costs in may and june. sources inside the trump campaign said the moves are increasingly alienating staff loyal to the original team headed by cory lewandoski. which had guided trump with relatively little campaign infrastructure or spending. katherine, this seems like a significant shake-up. paul mannafort seems to be the guy driving the train. >> the previous leadership or the leadership that said let trump be trump. let him be inflammatory. let him charm the masseses. the new crowd that's in they're more about how do we win this thing? how do we get a ground game. they're getting trounced behind the scenes in terms of ted cruz being able to pick up delegates who are knocked down to the vote. they need more of that sort of professional networked insider game. >> look at the spending.
3:44 pm
new york spending, you've got team sanders at 5.8 million. team clinton at 2.8 million and the rest of the republicans, 480, 467. team trump, $67,000, that's it. from the campaign. >> i know people have spent more on spring break last year. you spend no money this gives a lie to the analysis that one team is being replaced by another. in the trump world there was no other team. the trump campaign wasn't a campaign. it was one man and an iphone and a series of instinctive moves. corey lewandoski was the body man. the campaign manager is back behind the desk thinking through strategy, no one was doing that they woke up and realized, that all worked, by the way. they realized they're going to lose on delegates. it's inconceivable in a pennsylvania primary trump comes in third it could happen. those are the rules and trump should have known that and he

should have had a staff in place to take advantage of those rules. but the republican party and its official the don't need to defend their system. it's inherently anti-democratic. somebody needs to represent the middle class, it doesn't need to be trump when this is all over. it will be hard for the party to do that if they're on the side of undemocratic election processes like these. >> so dana, it's a rigged election, trump talking point. he's saying that a lot on the trail. it seems to be firing up his loyal base, cruz's response, trump has a very simple motto, overpromise, underdeliver and blame someone else. that's why when we win, he whines, that's not good leadership, that's not good management. that's not taking responsibility and it's not what anyone should want in a president. the stakes are too high. >> what about that argument, that if you can't manage the delegate process to get the nominati nomination, how are you going to manage the u.s. federal
3:46 pm
government as a president. >> from a pr perspective, i think both campaigns are putting forward their best arguments, i can see why donald trump is saying it's rigged. people are saying how can it possibly be that he won everything in south carolina, but not all the delegate goes to him. it's like 55 delegates or whatever it is. it is confusing for people. however it's not a national system. each state has their own system. so ted cruz is right. that if you want to be president of the united states, as i do, then you must figure out how to win on the delegate portion. you almost have to run several campaigns all at once. i also feel a little bit like, i feel bad for some of the trump loyalists, the ones that were there from the beginning, they got him to where he is today. it is tough to swallow, a new boss on that front. it feels like they're fixing something that didn't need to be
3:47 pm
fixed at the trump campaign. >> katherine, the math to 1237, how tough will that be? >> it will be tough for trump still. just because as in pennsylvania, there are too many delegate who is are up for grabs, if he doesn't get it on the first ballot, he's probably written off, cruz has done too much work behind the scenes, try to get pledge delegates once they're freed up to vote who they want to vote for, i think it's going to be very challenging to him. >> tomorrow we lay out the possible scenarios on the map and lay it out on "special report," next up, president obama on the election and saudi arabia. we asked a group of young people when they thought they should start saving for retirement. then we asked some older people when they actual did start saving. this gap between when we should start saving why too many of us aren't prepared for retirement.
3:48 pm
just start as early as you can. it's going to pay off in the future. if we all start saving a little more today, we'll all be better prepared tomorrow. prudential. bring your challenges. test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test they say that in life, we shouldn't sweat the small stuff. but when you're building a mercedes-benz, there really is no small stuff. every decision... every component... is an integral part of what makes the 2016 c-class one of our most sophisticated cars ever.

bilateral u.s.-saudi issue. if we open up thet( possibility thatçó individuals in the united states can routinely start suing other governments, then we are also opening up the united states to being continually sued. >> the president seems to want to use the leverage!mfw3 the 9/11 families in order that rift that the pres)ç9q
3:52 pm
has created himself as a result of the iranian nuclear deal. we actually need tow3 detert( people from facilitating and financing ter"orist attacks. >> president obama and there you see senatorxd cornyn talking about a piece of calledt(çólp jñc3jfokasta act. this seems like a bigger deal. white house signaling that they may veto this bill if it passes. the saudis saying they are going to have economicw3jf reper tutionw3 cushions. >>ñi timing was really good. they knew the presidentohám going to be going to saudi arabia. we will put this on the table and ask to you deal i defend the president's from a national security standpoint rew thinks that these docu-wqm should notup &c @ be released, the 28 pages. i also think thatñic he has somewhat of an argument about america opening up to
3:53 pm
being sued. as i understanhd it from so. narrowt( wind?.p of.w3 >> international terrorism andjf sponsoring international terrorism. >> 9/11 families havez( already been able to sue iran because iran was labeled asi] a state sponsor of terrorism. so they havet( already moved thatlpñi ball down the road. i think that the presidentq was caught between a rock and hard place because he is going to saudi arabia and he publicñc3 signal before he got there, that he wouldq veto the bill. >> a sticky meeting in rehad th7krrñ itfá certainly seems ths way but note1 because of0l this. saudis have been sore about nuclear deal with iran. those two have beenjf rivals forjf a long time. recent events have basically made saudi arabia question so, certainly the setup, even before these 28 pages became an issue meant itñi was going to be a difficult meeting. >> tucker? >> i think it's completely crazy and reckless on both
3:54 pm
sides. what's america's interest here? keeping the saudi royal family from collapsing and saudi arabia from becoming a holiest site of all within its borders. what would happen ifpt+q country became syria are our they feel betrayed. every state in é region feels betrayed by obama. no allies who like us more after eight years of obama. this is unstable regime. unsavory and immoral regime but prefsm@ble to the consequences there is a lot of shiites who live in saudi arabia. they are completely freaked out by the president's support fore1 iran. they are alreadyñijffá5a nervoud jumpy. there is nothing we get out of making them more nervousçó and jumpy. >> veto that bill? >> it's not going to resolveçó the tragedy of 9/11. no person thinksçó the saudi responsible for 9/11. that's very different. our interests now is keeping that country stable unlike
3:55 pm
so many of the other countries in the region. wejf have fresh examples of what happens when breai÷ out. with us. >> that's an understatement. you have the giftçó for understatement. and i think that when and i think that when president obama goes,ñ only will the meeting l%uñc3 tough, but it's important, i think,9qju the president to start setting upñrñi his successor with at least a decent rk,q%=9m!%a or anfá ability to keep talking because there is cooperation even though we might not want to admit it sometimes. >> panel, thank you. catherine, thanks for being here. back with some final thoughts after one more break. jf3wxd
