7:54 am
woman who sealed her pregnancy from officials so she could give birth in the united states. i get to write, but i feel like now it's rather than just painting three colors, i get to get the whole thing. for the mets, it is their time and it's now their city for the taking. >> here's the payoff pitch, and it's in there. the mets win the pennant. >> cubs haven't been this disappointed since every moment of their lives. >> this morning's eye opener at 8:00 is presented by liberty mutual insurance. i'm charlie rose with gail king. hillary clinton gives testimony to a special house committee. she will answer questions about the 2012 benghazi attacks that killed four americans. committee members are also likely to ask her about her private e-mail server. >> we first learned about when it the committee asked for the state department e-mails.
7:55 am
more softly this morning than the last time clinton testified about benghazi. the critics and even a couple republicans now say this investigation is mainly political. and you can watch gavel to gavel coverage of this morning's benghazi hearing live on our digital network, that's cbsn. race is more settled, nearly 30 years after he first ran for president. joe biden will not seek the 2016 democratic nomination. the decision ends months of uncertainty. he said his biggest concern whether he and his family were emotionally ready after the death of his son beau in may. at the white house wednesday, biden said he'll keep fighting for what he believes in. >> i believe we have to end the partisan politics that is ripping this country apart. i think we can. it's mean-spirited. it's petty. and it's gone on for much too long. i am absolutely certain we are
7:56 am
fully capable of accomplishing extraordinary things. and when we do, america won't just win the future, we will own the finish line. >> major garrett was at the white house for the vice president's announcement, major, good morning, it's clear the vice president had the passion, but did he have the pathway to victory? >> he didn't, and many here at the white house never thought joe biden would run for president, even though those who thought he might thought he would have announced early october at the very latest. when he didn't, many believed it was just a matter of time before joe biden made that announcement that he wouldn't seek the presidency. there was growing restlessness about the deliberations. that came to a head earlier this week when the white house was forced to deal with questions about what the did the vice president tell president obama right before the osama bin laden raid? how much power did he have in
7:57 am
veto power over cabinet picks. put the white house in an awkward position when it's relieved now to be out of. >> i was curious to see what the inner circle, how they were feeling about the process, and you touched on that. we saw a picture that pete released showing him and the president, president obama and joe biden apparently working on the speech. were you surprised to see president obama at his side when he came out yesterday? >> not at all because these two have been in tandem from the very beginning. one of the reasons that president obama picked joe biden as running mate, he believed he had great political instincts and he didn't think he was that hyperambitious about seeking the presidency. that's one of the reasons joe biden is vice president. because president obama did not want to have a democratic vice president he always had to worry about being a potential successor. joe biden did give this a lot of serious thought, but in the end, he knew the calendar and the pathway to victory simply argued against him. >> go ahead. >> what do you think was at the heart of some of the remarks
7:58 am
that some took as a veiled reference to hillary clinton and how she's running her campaign? >> i think what joe biden wanted to do, he had a stage he'd never have again, say something on behalf of the president's agenda and the accomplishments he and president obama put before the nation. because he knows bernie sanders and to a certain degree hillary clinton are moving away from that saying this president hasn't been aggressive enough, joe biden's point he has and and democrats ought to be more thankful. youtube is betting users will pay to play its videos and music's add free. youtube red costs $9.99 a month, it allows users to save videos to watch offline and gives access to a new music app. >> viewers can also watch new original programming from youtube's biggest stars like swooed ib gamer, the cast of college humor and blogger lily sing. nicholas thompson is editor of the nick, good morning. >> good morning. >> will you make revenue?

money, they have not struggled getting viewers, but they can't make money. let's see if people will pay and they're going to offer exclusive stuff, they're going to offer the ability to watch it without ads which will appeal a lot of people. >> they didn't make money from ads? >> they do make money from ads, but those on youtube, people can close them and people do close them. the content cost, the streaming cost, infrastructure cost versus the ad revenue, they've never had a great model. >> who's the main source? >> it is pack to. facebook video has been soaring and that has youtube scared. the main competition for this new offering, a um can have things, one of the most interesting is the music bit. people spend more time listening to music on youtube than anything else. >> that surprises me. this is a competitor to that. once you get rid of the ads, people might see it as a replacement. you can have youtube video
8:00 am
>> hasn't this always been the conundrum, one of the most valuable websites out there, it has such a young demographic. my kids know youtube, they don't watch general television, they watch everything on youtube. and yet, they have not found a way to monetize this incredible viewership that they have. >> right. >> and because they can't monetize it, they can't pay the stars. they're worried about the stars leaving. at their last big effort to increase the quality was to go with traditional tv players and pull them on to youtube and offer them money. that didn't work. this is a total pivot, what they're doing is saying you know what, let's cultivate the stars. let's put them behind a pay wall, let's try to build them up, let's keep them here. this is a new strategy in that sense. >> thanks, nick. good to see you. >> good to be here. brain surgery may only be starting to solve our greatest health challenges ahead. brian gumball with how one big leap could happen on live tv this weekend.

8:09 am
inherently dangerous. really what shows whether a dog is going to bite is the history of the dog. >> the history of the dog, not the breed. >> not the breed. the dog. but sadly, a lot of dogs are being euthanized just because they have a big blocky head, but they are the sweetest dogs. >> while the book is mostly about loving and caring for animals, it also follows her path to happiness through animals. like when she was in a relationship with a hypercritical boyfriend. >> he had gone to an ivy league school, so he loves to correct my grammar. he told me that i had too much space between the bottom of my nose and the top of my lip. >> this is where we should zoom in, everybody -- >> i did wax if you want to zoom in. >> i read that part of the book, and i went and looked in the mirror to say, let's see, i wondered, is my okay. >> no one says something to crazy. >> that's a clue. >> there's must be something there. >> none of that was enough for

world's largest investment firm blackrock is out with a new survey that reveals how average investors are holding too much cash and short changing their future. rob kaipito, good morning. >> is that trillion with a "t"? >> it's a big responsibility. >> tell us what you found out about cash. >> well, this is a very interesting survey, because we found that people around the globe, this is 31,000 people around the globe in the survey, are more optimistic about their financial future and they actually know what they need to do, but they are not doing anything about it. and so we see that because people are sitting more in cash than ever before. and cash is not going to get you where you need to get to in retirement. >> so they are being conservative even thorough optimistic about the future. why? >> well, for different groups.
8:23 am
financial crisis and they saw what can happen and some of them saw their homes decline 50%, some saw their assets decline 50%. they remember every single time they lost money. the millennials didn't have a lot of assets and are investing and they are spending most of the time on their computer is about financial advice and financial information. they are actually investing in the future. and a lot of people are also nervous and staying in cash because it's a security blanket. and they are very nervous about a lot of the headlines and they just don't want to be in that position again. >> well, we know where it is and we know how much we got, that is why there is something very comfort baggage that when you have cash. you're saying not a smart thing to do? >> or we need it right away and we have it. >> go under the mattress and pull it out, rob. >> what did you learn about men and women? >> it's very complicated because people know they are going to
8:24 am
when did living longer become a problem? instead of spending ten years in retirement, you're going to spend 14 to 18 and they haven't saved enough. so what is interesting about savings is there is a difference between men and women. men are actually starting to save. women are not saving as much as men and the reason for that is because they control the household financials. they would rather spend today on their children than put away for their own retirement. >> i wouldn't say -- i honestly wouldn't say it's a choice. i mean, of course, you're going to spend on your children. honestly. it's like am i going to get my kids new shoes and new backpack for school or save money? i'm going to buy my kid the money because they knee shoes for school. >> but you need to save for retirement because you're living much longer. maybe if you take care of your kids as well they will allow you to move back in with them because you're going to need to move back in with them.
8:25 am
she used to say that all the time! >> the average person claims that they need 45,000 dollars of income for retirement. and if you take their assets today and what it's generating becae ey have so much 9,000. there is a 36,000 dollar gap and you cannot make up that gap by staying in cash. >> where should we invest? >> without respect to stocks or particular things, give us the rules that you think work in terms of what you do. >> so everyone's risk profile is different. your age is different. but, in general, most people in the early stages of their life should be 65% in equities and 35% in bonds and very little in cash. over your lifetime, that equity percentage declines and the bond percentage increases. today, the average household has 65% to 70% cash.
8:26 am
you can't invest for the future in the future and what we are trying to create awareness about, it's not timing the market. it's time in the market. so people need to get invested today, especially the millennials. the millennials are actually doing this. they are spending time. they realize they need to use technology, but they also realize they need advice and they are actually going and getting advice and they are teaching the next generations how to do this. >> rob kapito, always good advice from you. thank you for joining us in the studio. this morning we continue our high school honor roll series celebrating super bowl number 50. retired running back and recent hall of fame inductee jerome bettis helped the steelers win the super bowl trophy. he came back home to the high school campus where he once stood. james brown, host of "the nfl on today" takes us to treat.
