7:00 am

7:01 am
and good morning, america. hopefully, everybody had a great weekend. i know there was some bad weather, maybe you got stuck at the airport. but did you have cyndi lauper at your airport serenading you? >> i think that would put me in a good mood, only if it was followed by ♪ and your plane is leaving right now ♪ sometimes you don't want to be cheered up. >> exactly. >> we have a lot to get to this morning. big day for the president. first cattle call in iowa. five are going to take the stage together tonight. the first caucus is less than a year away. who is not jumping in? and why. it's interesting who is in? sarah palin actually weighing in on an interview as she's on her way to india. all of that ahead. also, george, more controversy brewing over prince andrew and his link to a convicted sex offender. pressure is growing on queen
7:02 am
elizabeth's youngest son to step down as britain's trade ambassador. also this morning, sad stories from over the weekend. a young rugby player and basketball player. both appeared to be in great shape. great student athletes. both die from what appear to be heart attacks. this morning, we have an important health alert, what parents and students need to know before sending their children on to the field. but first we'll return to the gas prices. with all the turmoil across the middle east, they're on a record climb. you see at a gas station in manhattan. white house now saying it may tap the strategic oil reserve tamp the oil prices down. that's happened only from the early 1970s. bianna golodryga is tracking this all weekend over at the smart screen. good morning, george. be prepared for another week of shock. and awe at the gas pump. unfortunately, gas prices are directly tied to the price of oil. as we've seen oil prices skyrocket, so too have gas prices. up 40 cents in the past month. take a look. in the past two weeks we have seen a 33 cent spike.
7:03 am
that's the first time since katrina. of course, that's not a record you want to brag back. look how it's affecting folks across the country. california up 50 cents in the past month to $3.89 a gallon. and indiana, up 40 cents. george, it's hitting folks at home faster than you could imagine. >> a lot of people calling for the white house to tap that strategic oil reserve. yesterday, the white house chief of staff bill daley said the white house is considering it. he didn't seem all that eager. there's a real debate, right? >> that's right, the u.s. has 727 million barrels sitting the in the strategic oil reserve. this is for emergencies only. take a look at the last time we did it, hurricane katrina, we tapped into 11 million barrels of oil. that only brought the price of gas down 3%. that's not enough to really hit home. it saves people probably about $10, george.
7:04 am
10 cents a gallon. >> all right, bianna, thanks very much. the crisis in libya also affecting gas prices forces loyal to moammar gadhafi and the battle to key cities in libya. the obama administration is under growing pressure to stop the violence. martha raddatz is in washington with the latest. good morning. good morning, robin. this is one of those growing crises where there are no easy answers and certainly no quick fixes. but that does not take the pressure off the administration. >> reporter: while rebels celebrated after pushing gadhafi's forces out of northern libya, this appears to be a fight no one is winning. a chess game that has stalled now prompting more calms for the u.s. to step in with a big move, enforcing a no-fly zone. >> this would be a signal to
7:05 am
gadhafi that the president is serious when he says, we need for gadhafi to go. >> reporter: but it would require a 24/7 air control. dozens of fighter jets that would attempt to keep gadhafi's war planes grounded. a no-fly zone could allow rebels to take a decisive step forward, stopping gadhafi's ability to launch air attacks. but it could also require u.s. bombing inside libya. to take out air defense systems. defense secretary robert gates has tried to shut the idea down. and was joined sunday by president obama's chief of staff. >> well, lots of people throw around the phrases of "no-fly zone." and they talk as though it's a game on a video game or something. >> reporter: one fear for pr victory for gadhafi, if he managed to shoot down an american jet. steve danyard is a former fighter pilot who enforced no-fly zones. >> there may be cheaper ways of providing for it. such as providing covert arms to the rebels. >> reporter: another option, deploying cell phone base
7:06 am
stations on aircraft flying outside of libya, to prevent the regime from jamming rebels' phones and internet connections. but those options would take weeks, even months to implement, giving gadhafi time to make advances in a very deadly game, george? >> okay, martha, thanks. we turn now to politics, and a milestone for at least some of the potential challenges to president obama. big names ascending on iowa a year less than the caucuses there to reach out to a critical group of voters. ahead of that, john berman has been tracking the candidates' latest moves. he is here this morning. john. >> good morning, george. this is one of those momentous days in politics. what's being called the first republican cattle call in the key state of iowa. it's the meeting of iowa state and freedom coalition. what the candidates appearing there have in common? for the most part, they aren't official candidate, yet. >> reporter: waukee, iowa. today's world headquarters for republican candidates not running for president who are
7:07 am
actually running for president. pawlenty, santorum, gingrich. who had us on the edge of our seats. >> because of our concern for the future of the country. >> reporter: with the dramatic announcement that -- >> we are today establishing a website. >> reporter: a website? how about the arguable front-runner, mitt romney in new hampshire who had us on the edge of our seats. >> it's going to take more than a good speech to put americans back to work. >> reporter: with the dramatic announcement that -- >> it's going to take a new president of the united states. >> reporter: but will it be him? what other possible explanation could there be that romney, who was trying to shake the reputation that he was born in a business suit, has apparently lost all of his neckties. four years ago, hillary clinton and barack obama had already been officially running for more than a month by now. can you name the only republican officially running so far? if you name the former part owner of the godfather's pizza
7:08 am
you win. george will writes if pessimism is not creeping into americans' thinking about the 2012 prospects, that is another reason for pessimism. what about sarah palin? the latest from the bbc today from alaska. she says she'll only be an official candidate if she feels the american people are officially ready for her. >> will the american electorate be ready for someone a bit unconventional in terms of a candidate who calls it like she sees it. as to let a political machine to get in the way. do it right for the voters. >> sarah palin. well, mitt romney likes a joke but no one ever came up to him after 2008 and said, you know, i wish the race could have been just a little bit longer. >> how have the past relations started, robin and i were talking about that before we got on air. on the other hand, i remember back in 1992, bill clinton didn't get in until what would have been october, because people thought george bush was strong that time around.
7:09 am
john, when you look at these different candidates, why do you think some of them aren't doing it? there are different reasons for each one. >> romney doesn't want to be a label the right now the official front-runner, because he doesn't want to be a punching back. people like mike huckabee, they genuinely haven't made up their mind. they genuinely aren't sure if they're running or not. then there are people like pawlenty and others right now, they don't need to get in. there are ways to run fast now. there are ways to run without being official. >> it seemed to help barack obama the fact that it was so long. people got to know him. >> got used to the idea that he was running. didn't seem so strange. >> as you said with president clinton, it didn't. are we reading more into it? does it really matter the timing of it? >> i think john hit on it at the end. there are other ways for candidates to be running without running right now. they set up independent packs. one of the factors, john, we saw last week that fox news suspended both newt gingrich and rick santorum.
7:10 am
i think mike huckabee wants to keep those jobs. >> that's right. they want the paychecks. let's go more to the tornado zone. twisters touching down in the south, leaving over 1,000 people homeless, plus a massive winter storm soaking the northeast. our sam champion is outside. has the latest for us. good morning, sam. >> good morning, robin. fast and furious. this storm wrapped it all up in one. spring is less than two weeks away. a lot of spring-lime components varying, some areas in floodwater, others in up to 20 inches of snow. >> reporter: this massive storm system soaking the eastern seaboard is up to 3 1/2 inches of rain. dumping snow in some parts of the northeast. rollovers and accidents line the highways. in scranton, pennsylvania, this bus turned up on its side after sliding up on a two-car fender bender. here, this family was lucky enough to make it out after it flipped over. this morning, 25 states are under either a flood watch or
7:11 am
warning. from vermont where flooded streams closed roads. >> oh, boy, look at this. wow. like lava coming at me. >> reporter: to shelby county, indiana, where a dozen people, including this 3-month-old baby had to be rescued from rising waters by boat. >> it came up 2 to 3 inches every hour. >> reporter: a possible tornado rip add part tree, and in louisiana, another band of high winds ripped the roof right off this church. in rayne, louisiana, a deadly tornado, winds racing at 135 miles per hour, displayed 150 people. and winds damaged 1500 homes and killed a mother who lost her life while shielding her new born baby girl after a storm ripped through her home. >> it happened so fast, it was a shock. >> reporter: after what has been an intense is winter. flooding is a major concern heading into spring. in big storm fashion, the air sweeping in behind this is cold and windy. right now, in times square, we're even seeing snow flurries.
7:12 am
after what is about 2 inches of rain yesterday. let's get to the boards. here's a quick look at more than 25 states with flood warnings. one thing you'll notice, they're all kind of hugging the mississippi river, the ohio river basin, the tennessee river basin as well. the red river will also be part of the zone that starts flooding soon as soon as we get the warmer temperatures in those regions. there is less rain in the northeast. as a matter of fact, what happens the clear air comes in and drys things up. 43 in new york, 40 in boston, it will feel colder until the wind settles down. 52 in washington, d.c. the next storm system to make the break a big snowmaker. for parts of the west. intermountain northwest, denver, covered in snow, minneapolis. getting a fresh hit h. only as well. it is nice and quiet along the gulf coast.
7:13 am
>> and we are live in times square this morning.
7:14 am
if you're headed out here, you won't need the rain jacket anymore but you will need the gloves and maybe a little hat. robin. >> thank you, sam. we have the latest scandal to rock the royal family, it's intensifying this morning. some british lawmakers are calling for prince andrew to step down from his job as trade envoy. because of his ties to american billionaire, jeffery epstein. epstein who was convicted of soliciting underage prostitutes. bumping ham palace issued a statement saying, prince andrew has the support of the government and continues to be fully committed to that role. let's check in with nick watt who joins us from london and has much more on this. good morning, nick. >> reporter: well, there is nothing like the whiff of a royal scandal, but this is more serious and seedier. it focuses as you said on prince andrew who is the queen's middle son. he is prince william's uncle and fergie's ex-husband. and, as you said, it focuses on his friendship
7:15 am
with american billionaire, jeffery epstein, who is a convicted sex offender, he spent time at epstein's florida home and was even photographed with his arm around a 17-year-old masseuse, who claims that epstein abused her. apparently epstein paid off some of fergie's debts in a deal brokered by prince andrew. at this point, no one is saying andrew was in any way involved in epstein's crimes but people are questioning his judgment, asking why a prince would continue to be friends with a convicted sex offender. prince andrew serves as a trade ambassador for britain and this morning, some people are calling for him to stand down. but the government right now is standing firmly behind the embattled prince. robin. >> and, nick, this is not the first time that prince andrew has had trouble? >> reporter: it is not. that's why the momentum building here. a couple years ago, he sold his home for $5 million over the
7:16 am
asking price to a billionaire. that raised eyebrows. and in those kick wiki leaks cables, he was report by an american ambassador to be borderline rude and cocky in a meeting. the knifes are out for prince andrew. it looks like he might become the embarrassing uncle at kate and william's wedding, robin. >> not the story line they were hoping for. over the weekend, a high school rugby player collapsed and died of cardiac arrest. just four days after a high school basketball star collapsed and died after scoring the winning shot for his team. both deaths came out warning. some are saying tragedies like these can be prevented. dan harris joins us more over a medical debate stirring up hard feelings. >> it is. good morning you to. it's horrifying when something like this happens. young healthy athletes cut down suddenly in their prime. now, as george said, there's a fiercely emotional debate about what should be done about this. >> reporter: 17-year-old matthew hammerdorfer was doing what he loved this weekend, playing
7:17 am
rugby on this field in ft. collins, colorado, where he collapsed and later died. it was a sudden cardiac arrest. this morning, facebook is awash with emotional tributes. you are more than my brother. i love you, man. you will never be forgotten. it comes just days after a 16-year-old basketball star in michigan named wes leonard collapsed on the court and died from sudden cardiac arrest moments after making the winning shot. the crowd going from jubilation to horror. >> this is just tearing me up. because he was just a special kid with a passion. you just don't get to see all the time. >> reporter: these two cases are hauntingly and infuriatingly familiar for michelle snyder whose 17-year-old daughter jennifer died after cardiac arrest during soccer practice. >> she kissed me good-bye and said i love you. i said i love you too. >> reporter: now snyder is
7:18 am
running an organization that calls for placing defibrillators in gyms and parks and making sure teachers and coaches are trained in cpr. >> all of a sudden, something didn't feel right. >> reporter: that is what saved liz pearlman when she had a sudden cardiac arrest and was resuscitated from a quick-thinking, well trained coach had a defibrillator on hand. and knew cpr. >> the series of events that happened in succession are why i am here. >> reporter: but michelle snyder and others want more than cpr training. they want all young athletes to have their hearts checked with ekgs. however, many doctors say that would be too expensive, given only 40 athletes a year die on average of sudden cardiac arrest. >> i get headlines every day because of kids who have died or need cpr. when i read an article and i see what happened to these two boys the last two days, it makes my stomach turn.
7:19 am
>> as said, this is an emotional debate. it is worth noting, however, that the american heart association has come out against the notion of screening all student athletes with ekgs. robin, over to you. >> okay, we'll talk more about that. emotional and bewildering medical issues here especially for parents. let's bring in marie savard. matthew, the young rugby player. we do know he had, unfortunately, he had has had a pre-existing condition, he had open heart surgery before. but wes, the young basketball player, had an undetected situation that is troubling for so many parents. >> that's right, it is infrequent. we do know that these kids have an underlying heart condition, something they're born with or something that develops perhaps hereditary. it's something when sudden death occurs, typically what happens is the heart is beating what seems to be normal. the kids don't have symptoms. often that's what is so frightening. then it becomes air rat ig, it
7:20 am
beating quickly and erratic and it stops. >> i have heard people say because they're an athlete, it brings it on even more so than if they were not so active. >> well, it is true. it is more like sudden death, it is more likely to occur in athletes because of the high adrenaline, high physical exertion. otherwi otherwise, kids without symptoms, it can happen totally unexpected. we heard what dan said about his report in italy, ekgs given to all student athletes but is that something that we can consider here? >> in italy, they have found in the past 30 years in giving ekgs in a very organized structured program, they believe it has saved lives, but it's not so straightforward. ekgs lead to a lot of false positives. abnormalities that may lead to more testing, potentially dangerous testing. sideline kids who don't need to be. we're talking 4 million to 5 million kids a year testing. we don't recommend that. >> american heart association does not consider that to be an option. they do have some things that parents need to be aware of. as far as prevention possibly. >> they do.
7:21 am
all children, before they begin an athletic program, need to have two things. this is part of the american heart association recommendation that we all endorse. that is first a focused history. is there a red flag such as a family history of heart disease or death before the age of 50. physical exam. listen for a heart murmur. and problems with blood pressure. things that might alert them. >> this that you have is key. >> it is key. ask today. parents should ask their schools if they have available this emergency defibrillator. but don't forget, cpr is perhaps the most important. knowing how to do it. being prepared. >> thank you. coming up, caught on tape, lindsay lohan and that surveillance video just made public. it looks bad, but will the tape keep her from going to jail. and the mystery of the american exchange student in spain. his family speaks out on their frantic search. >> what's happened to him. and charlie sheen moves up his media blitz with launching

welcome back. mostly cloudy this morning. a little breezy. let's take a look at our temperatures. you'll see that we are pretty mild, mid 40s inland. gusts are up to 25 and it will be up to 40. and it will be around 20-30 this afternoon. stray showers tonight and
7:29 am
7:30 am
that is lindsay lohan in surveillance photos just released from a jewelry store where she allegedly stole a necklace. will the video that has gone public help her or hurt her when it comes to jail. good morning, on this monday morning. >> that is the question now. since the video, or the jewelry store released it, seemingly doing it for cash, will that hurt the case coming up. we'll find out coming up. also, what happened to this exchange student. he has mysteriously vanished from a nightclub. in spain. this morning his family is breaking their silence. they are going to help with the search in spain.
7:31 am
let's see, we haven't talked about charlie sheen yet. he hits the web with his own jokes. over the weekend, he launched his own show online. it got more than 1 million views. he now has 2 million followers on twitter. we'll have the latest on sheen's winning strategy. >> he admitted that the web show tanked. he took the blame for it saying it was my bad. plus, this is the dress that started it all. look at kate middleton on the catwalk. supposedly, that is when prince william saw her in that dress. he knew she was the one for him. this morning you with meet the designer and find out how you can get a copy of that dress. >> it really wasn't a dress to begin with. in more ways than one. the backstory coming up. first in this half hour, we have a new development in the criminal case of lindsay lohan. the jewelry store that she is accused of stealing the necklace from has a key piece of evidence. our mike von fremd has all of the details from los angeles. >> reporter: this venice beach store sure knows how to give one
7:32 am
of its most famous customers special treatments. not only accused lindsay lohan of shoplifting, the $2,500 necklace that the actress said was simply borrowed, this once little known store is now attempting to cash in bigtime, selling the store's surveillance video to "entertainment tonight." >> if i'm the prosecutor handling the case in which a critical piece of evidence has been sold to the media, i am outraged. >> reporter: two weeks ago, when all sides agreed to keep the videotape private, a no nonsense judge publicly sent lohan an unmistakable message. >> this case does involve jail time, period. >> reporter: but legal experts say if a key piece of the prosecution's evidence is now tainted, it may be the judge who receives an unmistakable message. >> he seems to have boxed himself in the corner without giving an opportunity to listen to whatever evidence coming. >> reporter: lohan's only comments have come to the tv
7:33 am
show "extra" saying she's embarrassed by the spectacle. >> i don't like the attention. i don't want that. i want my attention to come through my films for the work that i am doing. >> reporter: on "saturday night live" hosted by miley cyrus, lindsay lohan remains ever so close to the center of attention. >> things are great. my new movie "herbie" opened 68 months ago, and the los angeles courthouse just gave me my own parking shot. >> reporter: on thursday, the actress will be in front of judge schwartz for what seems like a no-win situation. for "good morning america," mike von fremd, abc news, los angeles. >> our legal analyst, dan abrams is back with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> i've got to tell you, you see this, you hear this, but it looks like the jewelry store is trying to make a fast buck. it has to hurt, or does it hurt or has it hurt the prosecution's case? >> there's no question they're trying to make a fast buck. there's also no question it fits right into what the defense may
7:34 am
be in this case. which is everyone is trying to make a buck off of me. the problem is, remember, the prosecutors and the jewelry store are not necessarily on the same page here. which is, the jewelry store is, in effect, the prosecutor's witness. the jewelry store is saying, okay, look, we're still working with you, we're still helping you, but we're going to do our own thing here. >> it's not illegal what they did? >> absolutely not. they can try to profit off of it and as a result hurt the prosecution's case. >> i still remember winona ryder, seeing the video over and over again with shoplifting. people are going to be looking at this closely. this could be damaging for lindsay? >> just the fact, if you see lindsay lohan on that case sort of sneaking away that necklace that undermines the entire defense here. just because it was sold is not damaging. the defense is, they loaned it to me. i was allowed to take it. if there is, what some people claim a distraction, meaning the salespeople are intentionally being distracted. so lindsay lohan can take it.
7:35 am
once again, we have to watch the videotape to see if that is the case. if they have that, that's incredibly powerful evidence in the context of this case. >> lindsay will be back in court on thursday. how will this affect -- they're waiting to see if she'll take a plea agreement, knowing that this video is going to be seen by so many. do you think that will affect here at all? >> the question is, did they know there's a tape out there? my guess is they knew there was a videotape already. the fact that it's being sold may actually lead lindsay lohan to agree not to agree to it deciding she's got a stronger case. we'll find out on thursday. if she does not, the judge is going to set a date for a preliminary hearing. and the case moves forward. >> do prior acts come into play? >> all these allegations in the past about her stealing things, et cetera, generally don't come into evidence. but in a case like this, could be an exception, to prove this was a mistake. the prosecutors may be able to show a pattern of behavior. the defense says, wait a second, look at this other stuff we've got.
7:36 am
are you saying all of this may be a mistake? that's the reason that it might be admissible. >> it's going to be a busy week. for other stories, juju chang at the news desk. happy monday morning, juju. happy morning to you. good morning, everyone. there was an emotional moment this morning for defense secretary robert gates on a visit to wounded troops in afghanistan. one soldier asked him what keeps you up at night? >> i would tell you that you all keep me up at night. i think a lot about the people out here. >> gates is in afghanistan to check on progress ahead of this summer's scheduled troop withdrawals. he's also meeting with afghanistan's president who has rejected a u.s. apology for the accidental deaths of nine afghan children. >>. the search for a missing
7:37 am

8:12 am
daughter-in-law, and sarah and kate are incredibly close. you do wonder if perhaps the introduction has been made and kate is going for a designer. the queen has celebrated many ways here. it would be a fitting tribute to a great designer. >> but could the leak -- let's assume there was truth. could they go back? >> they're the most clandestine couple, aren't they, the engagement, you just wonder if kate has a contingency plan that will may be another dress just in case this comes out. i honestly think the design, once she's made the decision, if it is, that's who she will be sitting with. >> we're also learning that the queen's cousin, the 80th birthday party, tom cruise --
8:13 am
>> she's very close to the queen. she organized the queen's 80th birthday. she's done countless ever. it's the very much the blueprint for this wedding. it wouldn't surprise me at all. she's known for her discretion and known to plan one party with style. >> and such a well planned p.r. here by the palace. just a couple hours ago, they released photos of kate from early life. we want to put a few of them up if we can. there she is, a little bit of a tomboy. >> yes, she looks very cute with pig tails. very young. so fresh. i think the wonderful thing about these pictures, they've started to release more. it's not been easy getting that material on kate. but i think just the pictures we see how normal her background was. >> all of her friends, family starting to clamming up?

>> i think actually they're starting to declam a little bit. they're starting to relax a little bit. there are certain allowed to say a little more. i think the palace realized there is an appetite. they want to see more about her past. they recognize now is the time to at least give more information. >> that's why we'll keep having you back. thanks very much. for the latest on everything connected to the big day visit our royal diary blog. for all the latest headlines, photos and video of the royal couple. and when we come back, robin takes on daytona 500 superstar trevor bayne. who says credit card rewards can't be simple?
