to fense says one month from today, actual presidential voting will begin at the iowa caucuses. by the end of 2016, americans will elect a new president. but we still have miles to go in this campaign and we have an ace to guide us this morning. "face the nation" host john dickerson is also cbs news political director and "wall street journal" peggy noonans abs news contributor and the author of "the time of our lives." nancy cordes has traveled the country covering the campaign. welcome hereen this new year's day. let me ask peggy, what does this signify now that we have gone to a new year in the politics and this race to be the next president? >> it m mns things finally get really and substantially exciting. we are, right now, going from the past 18 months where
7:08 am
feelinand i think this isis going to happen, there is a new poll, dah, dah, dah. now things are really going to happen. the voters are going to get together and there is really going to be caucuses in iowa. new hampshire is going to ve soon after. we are actuallllgoing to find out if the donald trump phenomenon is real and lasting, and if it is not, we are going to find out what is coming up and who is going to take this thing ovov. >> nancy, february 1st is iowa. february 9th is new hampshire. this is the latest these caucuses and primaries have been in 20 years. what does that mean? >> it means thatt not only is the presidential race kind of frozen until we see what happens with donald trump, if he can maintain this lead, but alsowill races below the presidential election is frozen as well. house republican candidates are waiting to see how they are going to run their races. theenteresting thing you ask
7:09 am
republican strategist, they have no idea what is going to happen. we have never seen anything like this before so they don't know if trump's lead will entirely disappear when folks in iowa and new hampshire head to the polls. >> john, haven't some of the polling out of iowa show there is extreme fluidity in the race? >> there always is. the cliche about iowa is organize, organize, organi, and get hot at the end. we are at the end now. we are in the moment of excitement for underdogs because this is what they have been saying. they said after the new year, then my moment will come as the voters you say norah, beingery flfld, will turn to me when they are going to pick a president. that has happened in the past. remember, rick santorum out of nowhere to win the iowa caucuses. the challenges for that undedeog, sticking with oogiowa, the last two winners of the iowa caucuses have not gone on.
7:10 am
it and didn't go on and bob dole won it and didn't go out in '88. >> but it's suggesting on the democratic side, we have seen surprises of barack obama in 2008 and john kerry in 2004. a late starter to organize and kick off the momentum then. >> john kerry the long hotot candidate. all of those one or two or three in the polls, they won't say this outloud but say i'd like to be like john kerry who was 3% in the polls and in part because of hiss rivals went after each other he rose when they fell and that is the hope for a lot of those republican candidates. >> the other thi that concerns me when we get tthe convention, if, in n ct, it is hillary clininn who will she choose as a running mate and if, in fact, she is the nominee. will republicans feel like they have to choose a woman as a running mate?
7:11 am
i'm not hearing that among conservatives and republicans. i remember the dream team was marco rubio oflorida and john kasich of ohioio it was like florida and ohio, my gosh, put that together. i'm not sure they will feel they have to have a woman, but i am sure that conversation will come up. why wouldn't it? and there is a lot of good women to choose from there.e. >> who are those republican women that would be at the top of the list? >> well, i think the first person you will have to think of is carly fiorina who is not huge in t t polls right now, but who has made a rather valiant try and who is, on some level, won some of the heart, i think, of the party. so she would certainly be first nsideration, i would think. i would think nikki haley and governor@- >> kelly ayotte?
7:12 am
lot of reasons they would want. >> could we look at this day a figure out what the grt debate is about for amemeca in 2016? >> i think you have tossume it's going to be a mix of economy and foreign policy. you know, in 2008, obviously, the economy. the economy and that really helped barack oboba, but i thihi we are going to see this ping-ponging back and forth over the course of the next year between economic concerns and then when something happens, hopefully, it doesn't, but when we have terrible things happen either here at home or abroad like san bernardino, that is coming to the forefront. when you pole republican voters o you think iss strongest on the economy, they say donald trump. when you ask them who do you think is strongest on foreign policy, they say donald trump. at least for right now, he is sort of rising above everyone. and normally you would think, okay, he has got this huge lead he is up by 15 points.
7:13 am
well in those primaries, but he doesn't really have a traditional organization, he doesn't have people, staffers working for him in these states, precinct captains, things like that. >> the alternative narratate, draw that, which is given republicans changed, not only the number of debates this election cycle, they made less. they changed the primary schedule. they made it more compact. how will that change and impact a potential trump candidacy or others taking trump out? >> well, let's go to fewer number of debates. it's true that donald trumum doesn't do as s ll in debat as he does in other venues because he is not as detailed-oriented and lesser for a candidate to not get hi shars of maritime to get in froro of the voters. yoyowould think they would want more debates a chance to shine and take him down. that's the way in which it's changed. i think another way wt will be interesting to watch, we are
7:14 am
presesential pick, it is still possible that because of the way the delegates are proportioned and i the field stays large enough, you could,his is wishful thinking on the part of all political reporters but you could have a situation you get to the convention and the nominee is not -- >> yeah. >> then you have an exciting situation of republican party hasn't had since '76 with reagan and d rd. you have a situation you go to cleveland and we don't know. >> there are people who have watched the unfolding in 2015 and they say that ted cruz really studidi past presidential campaigns, has been a real student of it. everybody think he is a very bright guy and the lessons he has learned in terms of organization, organization, organization. >> organization.n. and also tacktical restraint. we saw him stay away from donald trump in a lot of fights he could have had. and that worked well for him. so he had not only the organization, but also one of
7:15 am
candidates who say have run before is the thing they say theyave learned is not to swg at every pitchch which iss to say youou need some discipline and the fact that cruz is able to stay out of a lot of those fights, that may be the thing that really benefits him. >> donald trump was not in school that day, was hehe >> he swings at pitches, the umpire, the opposing team. >> one of the amazing things abt trump is that discipline is exactly the word. when you get i i and you start to win, you start to look like you're winning, you start to look like you're really possible, if you are, if you've goyour head screwed on right, you develop discipline. you show respectct for everybody by being disciplined. you can have colorful programs and colorful ideas, dramatic on but you put them flrward in a thoughtfull and wee can talkk about this way and you're not unnecessarily insulting. it is amazing to me that donald
7:16 am
him, has enforced him to exhibit the kind of discipline that a winner must have. >> who is that person who could do that? i don't know who that person could possibly be. >> oer than donald trump. >> that is s e answer but n't see how you do it without discipline. if it goes for the convention, a fight of a hand-to-hand fight on the convention floor is about discipline and having -- you really need it. >> peggy, thank you. john, nancy, thank you so much. las vegas is battling to heat things up in 2016. casino revenue dropped on the strip. sin city is luring the next generation of gamblers by rolling the dice on a new era. ben tracy got a look at what could be vegas' best chance for change. >> reporter: las vegas as we know it was built on the back of the one-armed bandit. slot machines with their 60% profit margin are cash cows.
7:17 am
put them out to pasture. >> 45 and under are not going to play slot machines. theyeyre just not. >> reporter: if he sounds like a guy with something new to sell, well, he is. >> we are going into a brand-new world. >> reporter:reg heads one of the companies thatatre betting on a very different kind of gambling. >> welcome to vegas pinball! >> reporter: a casino that looks mu more like an arcade and a nightclub, filled with games that require skill, not just games of chance. this is much more like a video game than gambling to me. >> yes, it does, doesn't it? i'm fighting for my life over here right now. i want tourn a casino into where you have a fighting chance to win some money. use your skill. shoot a target. >> reporter: i can't imagine that your sales pitch too the casinos, they don't want a fighting chance to give money to people. >> the base will change.
7:18 am
have to be prepared fororhe next generation coming? >> reporter: that generation is the millennials. they head to las vegas in droves and head past the casino and into nightclubs. st 63% of millennials who visited las vegas in 2014 gambled, compared to 78% of thfir parents' generation and 87% of thehe grandparents. >> young people come to vegas for nightclubs and partying and dancing and no longer for gambling. you alcays have to keep your eye on the prize. >> repororr: darian loewenstein is the steve marketing officer for gambling. >> reporter: you won $3.20! their idea is take the games people play on their smartphone an add gambling. you can also compete not against a dealer, but against your friends. >> as opposed to the focus of did i win or lose money, they start playing and get more invested in did i beat the boss? am i getting to the next level? yoyoknow? how am i doing at the game play
7:19 am
>> reporter: the flip side of that they are not reizing how muchchoney they are losingng >> right. absolutely positive.e. >> reporter: a change in nevada gaming regulations in september now allows for skilled players to potentially win more money by advancing further into the game. but the downside is if you aren't gd at the game,ou could loseven more often than a game of chance. these new skill-based games are expected to hit casino floors this year. >> we are now treading into a new territory. and, agaga, we are trying to attract a different generation. they don't play poker or blackjack but they play arcade games. >> reporter: those clots, no matter how much manufacturers try to keep them relevant, may be on theieifinal spin. >> ten years from now, those will be empty slot machines that dad used to play. >> reporter: for "cbs this momoing," ben tracy, lasasvegas. >> not your grandma's vegas any more. there is a booming wine region already larger than napa valley

fixed rate. no concern if yououo from 4 to 4.5%. we want to make people understand what the next 30 years of payments will look like. => i never thought an ajustifiable rateadjustable rate mortgage was a good thing. >> if you know you're leaving within five to seven years, fantastic. i'm going to a different place. i'm a doctct. i'm going totoe mobile. i'm not staying in this house. that is fine. but for most people, a fixed rate. >> is this a good year to buy a buying one? >> i think this is the year more peoplelere able to buy a house. look. we had a problem last year. we didn't have a lot of houses for sale. the inventory was quite low. houses coming on to the market now for 2016 should be good n ns and hopefully prices stay reasonable and with rates low i think a good thing for most homeowners. >> what about irs changes for retirement in 2016? >> no#changes. still at 18,000. howw about that? a lot of people said to me they
