let's go places. we hope you're enjoying the first morning of 2016. we recorded parts of this broadcast in the days leading up to the new year. >> and here we are, another year altogether. >> i like it. >> new year's is always a great day for me, you can think about all the things you want to do in the new year. >> i'm usually a little tired. >> or hung over. >> it does make you think what a great year we had going last year. and now what to accomplish. >> and how this will be better. >> don't you remember when you were younger they used to say time really flies. morning. newsroom. year. i'm don dahler. the world welcomed in 2016 without serious trouble, under a

of 23.21 feet. it's going to go down. but that's a lot of water the levee is holding right now. >> reporter: in arnold, missouri, hundreds find themselves without a home. and temperatures are now dropping below freezing. >> until this goes down and they can come and check our homes and make sure our safe, we can't live in them. so we're going to be out of a place to stay probably for couple of weeks at least. >> reporter: the thorne family lost their home in arnold due to the floods. but for linda thorne, this new year brings a sense of hope. >> oh, my lord. it's a new beginning. i've got a great-grand-baby coming in. this baby, if it comes at midnight, it will definitely be a fantastic new year. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," david begnaud, st. louis, missouri. a fire in dubai left a luxury hotel skyscraper in flames before that middle

heavy smoke billowed from the tower and wreckage fell to the streets below. many people who were evacuated say they never heard a fire alarm. at least 14 people were injured. new year's day is known for ball games. but the matchup for college football's national championship was decided on new year's eve. top ranked clemson stayed undefeated, beating oklahoma 37-17 in the orange bowl. second seeded alabama shut out michigan state in the cotton bowl, 38-0. the tigers and crimson tide play in the title game, that's comingis up and we need it to warm up! it was cold for ringing in the new year! temps had dropped to 34 degrees at midnight last night. ........... and so no wonder it's really cold right now! we're below freezing around most valley neighborhoods and even dropping to the very cold 20s. ............... winds were calm, but it was just really chilly through the night. ........... we will have a cool first day of
7:06 am
staying below normal today with highs right around 50 degrees. it's 7:26 ... > accordi one month from today, one month from today actual presidential voting will begin at the iowa caucuses. and 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 political
7:07 am
"face the nation" host john dickerson is the cbs news political director. "wall street journal" columnist peggy noonan. nancy cordes is a cbs news political correspondent. peggy, what does this signify, that we've gone to the new year in this race to be the president? >> it means things finally get exciting. we're right now going from the past 18 months where everybody said, i've got a gut feeling and i think this is going to happen, there's a new poll, dah-dah-dah. now there's really going to be caucuses in iowa. new hampshire is going to vote soon after. we'll actually find out if the donald trump phenomenon is real
7:08 am
and if it is not, we'll find out what's coming up and who is going to take this thing over. >> nancy, february 1st is iowa. february 9th is in new hampshire, the latest these caucuses have been held. what does that mean? >> the race is frozen until we see what can happen with donald trump, if he can maintain this lead. but races below the presidential election are frozen as well. house and senate candidates are waiting to see how to run their races. you ask any republican leader or strategist, the wisest republicans, they have no idea what is going to happen. we've never seen anything like this before. they don't know if trump's lead about entirely disappear when folks in iowa and new hampshire
7:09 am
>> the polls have shown there's extreme fluidity in the race. >> there always is. the cliche in iowa is organize, organize, organize, and get hot at the end. we're at the end now. we're at the moment of excitement for underdogs. this is what they've been saying, after the new year my moment will come. the voters are very fluid, and they'll turn to me when they're going to pick a president. that's happened in the past. remember, rick santorum out of nowhere to win the iowa caucuses. the challenge for that underdog, particularly with iowa, the last two winners of the iowa caucus has not gone on. and that's what happened before, bob dole won it and didn't go on, george bush won it and didn't go on. it's a chance for somebody who hasn't gotten the love to finally get the love with the voters and build some spark to go on. >> we have seen surprises on the democratic side, barack obama in
7:10 am
late starter who was able to organize and get going. >> john kerry is the patron saint of long shots. republicans will say -- they won't say this out loud, they'll say i would like to be like job who was at about 3 or 4% in the polls, and then in part because his rivals went at each other, he rose as they fail. >> the other interesting thing, when we get to the conventions, if in fact it is hillary clinton, who will she choose as a running mate, and if in fact she is the nominee, will the republicans feel like they have to choose a woman as a running mate? >> i don't know. i'm not hearing that among conservatives and republicans. i remember the dream team was marco rubio of florida and john kasich of ohio. it was like florida and ohio, oh, my gosh, put that together. i'm not sure they will feel that they have to have a woman. but i am sure that conversation
7:11 am
and there's a lot of good women to choose from there. >> who are those republican women that would be at the top of the list? >> i think the first person you will have to think of is carly fiorina, who is not huge in the 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 consideration. >> i would think nicky hayley, governor martinez. kelly allyote. there's a lot of reasons they would want to. >> can we look at this day and figure out what the great debate is going to be about for america in 2016? >> i think you have to assume it's going to be a mix of economy and foreign policy. you know, in 2008 obviously it was the economy, the economy, and that really helped barack obama.
7:12 am
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's going to come forefront. the interesting thing right now is when you poll republican voters and ask them who do you think would be strongest on the economy, they say donald trump. and then when you ask them who do you think would be strongest on foreign policy, they say donald trump. and so at least for right now, he is sort of rising above everyone. and normally you would think, okay, he's got this huge lead, he's up by 15 points, of course he's going to do well in the 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. >> draw the alternative far a narrative, john.
7:13 am
the number of debates, they changed the primary schedule, made it more compact. how will that change or impact a potential trump candidacy or others taking trump out? >> let's go to the fewer number of debates. if it's true that donald trump doesn't do as well in debates as he does in other venues because he's not as detail-oriented and it's also an opportunity for less are candidates who can't get his share of airtime to finally get in front of the voters, you would imagine all non-trump candidates would want more debates, a chance to shine and take him down. that's a way in which it's changed. what will be interesting to watch, we were talking about the vice presidential pick, it is still possible that because of the way the delegates are proportioned, and if the field stays large enough, you could, and this is wishful thinking on the part of all political reporters, but you could have a situation where you get to a convention and the nominee does not have a majority.
7:14 am
situation, the republican party hasn't had it since 1976. >> people say ted cruz really studied past presidential campaigns, and the lessons he's learned in terms of organization, organization, organization. >> and also tactical restraint. we saw him stay away from donald trump in a lot of fights that he could have had. and that worked well for him. so he had not only the organization but also, one of the things candidates who have run before, they say they've learned not to swing at every pitch, which is to say you need some discipline. the fact that cruz has been able to stay out of a lot of those fights has helped him.
7:15 am
>> one of the amazing things about trump is that discipline is exactly the word, when you get in and you start to win, you start to look like you're winning, if you've got your head screwed on right, you develop discipline, you show respect for everybody by being disciplined. you can have colorful programs and colorful ideas, dramatic ones, but you put them forward in a thoughtful and we-can-talk-about-it way. it's amazing that donald trump or someone around him hasn't forced him to exhibit the kind of discipline that a winner must have. >> but who is that person that could do that? i don't know who that person could possibly be. >> it should be donald trump. >> maybe that's the answer. but i don't see how you do it without discipline. if it goes to the convention, a hand to hand fight on the
7:16 am
discipline and having your troops. 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 on the strip dropped between may and october last year. sin city's turnaround plan includes luring the next generation of gamblers by rolling the dice on a new era. >> reporter: las vegas as we know it was built on the back of the one-armed bandit. slot machines with their 60% profit margins are cash cows. but greg dufreas says it may be time to put them out to pasture. >> 45 and under are not going to play slot machines. >> reporter: if he sounds like a guy with something new to sell, well, he is. >> we're going into a brand-new world.
7:17 am
companies that are betting on a different kind of environment. a casino that looks more like an arcade than a nightclub, filled with games of skill, not just chance. >> this feels much more like video games than gambling to me. >> yes, it does, doesn't it? i'm fighting for my life over here. i want to turn a casino to where you have a fighting chance to win some money. use some skill, shoot a target. >> reporter: i can't imagine that the casinos want to give people a fighting chance to win money. >> they're all going to change. as your base gets older and more evolved, you have to make sure you get your next generation in. >> reporter: that next generation walks right by the casinos and into the nightclubs. just 63% of millennials who visited las vegas in 2014
7:18 am
of their parents' generation and 87% of their grandparents. people come for all the great things vegas is known for, but really no longer for gambling. >> you have to keep your eyes on the prize. >> reporter: he's the chief marketing officer for gambling. they're idea is to take the games people already play on their smartphones and add gambling. you can compete not just against a dealer but against your friends. >> they start playing and get more invested in, did i beat the boss, did i get to the next level, how am i doing with the game play as opposed to the money part of it. >> reporter: the flip side is they don't realize how much money they're losing. >> right. absolutely possible. >> 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 good at the game, you
7:19 am
at a game of chance. these skill-based games are expected to hit casino floors this year. >> we're now treading into new territory and trying to attract a different generation. they don't play poker or blackjack. but they play arcade games. >> reporter: those slots, no matter how much manufacturers try to keep them relevant, may be on their final spin. >> ten years from now, those will be antique slot machines that dad used to play. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," ben tracy, las vegas. >> not your grandma's vegas anymore. a booming wine region in a land you might not expect. seth doane takes us to the vineyards of china. and jill schlesinger looks at the changes in the economy for 2016 and what it means for your money. she made marathon history at 92. the inspiration that helped her cross the finish line. and this is what got you to the race?

welcome back to "cbs this morning" on this new year's day. happy new year's to you. coming up, the grandmother of 10
7:29 am
we'll introduce you to the 92-year-old, that's a worth repeating, a 92-year-old. she moves pretty good. she refuses to let life's challenges slow her down. that's ahead. when you think of wine, california and italy likely come to mind. but wine makers in china are determined to win recognition. seth doane went there to see how one region helped china become the world's fifth largest wine producer. he's now back in beijing. seth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, and happy new year to you. with a population of nearly 1.4 billion people, it's not surprising that china would be the world's fifth largest consumer of wine. but it's also the fifth largest producer of wine and growing fast. the desert is being transformed.
7:30 am
of water to irrigate these fields each year, and hundreds of millions in investment to make this china's wine country. >> i've been to other wine regions in the world, and i thought, the gobi desert, unthinkable. but boy, it is a reality, and it's a big reality. >> reporter: so big that wine expert and author karen mcneill knew she had to come to china. she was updating her book "the wine bible," writing for magazines, and trying to understand these really new world wines. >> i taste 3,000 wines a year and have for 30 years. >> reporter: that's a lot of wine. >> that's a lot of wine. some woman has to do it. seth, don't try to take my job. >> reporter: i was just thinking, that sounds good. >> so i have a good understanding of when wine has potential and when it doesn't.
7:31 am
tasting rooms where she took notes. wine importers say china's wine producers are producing their own flavors, not just copying others. "we're traveling overseas and bringing back wine cultures," he says. >> you can buy wine from all over the world, that just takes money. but making wine takes expertise. >> reporter: seeing that took mcneill to the vineyards where she toured. >> what's your total production? >> 60,000 bottles each year. >> reporter: and tasting it, sometimes right from the barrel. >> 2013, a great vintage here. >> reporter: if the name doesn't sound familiar, it will. >> oh, man, that's really good. our grandchildren will probably
7:32 am
other wine region in the world. >> reporter: there are about 80,000 acres of vineyards planted here. by 2020, they plan to have more than 160,000 acres. that's more than three times the amount in the napa valley. napa did it in a century. here, a decade. >> it's fruity. ot as complex as french champagne. >> reporter: we sampled a sparkling white. this facilitate is a the $23 million investment. >> for lvmh to spend this kind of money here is a big thumbs up in terms of its confidence about the chinese market. >> so it starts from scratch. we built up the winery, the vineyards, everything. >> reporter: he is the general manager here.
7:33 am
has the slightest french accent. >> i learned wine making in france. so i want to bring the savoir savoir faire to china. >> reporter: he showed us there are specific challenges here. >> we have to bury the lines every year, every winter. and you unbury the lines with spring. >> reporter: to protect them from the wind? >> from the wind and cold. >> reporter: covering the vines each winter is done by hand, which drives up cost. then there's the question of sustainability. watering all of these vines in a desert. and supply. can all of this wine be sold? >> it is really a risky bet. but i think the chinese philosophy has been, build it and they will come. and if you build it well, they will come. so we'll just have to see. >> reporter: her journey to china, in a word, karen mcneill
7:34 am
>> we thought we knew all the great wine regions in the world, we know tuscany, we know bordeaux, we know napa. the idea that somewhere in the chinese desert might be the next great wine region in the world, it's astounding. >> reporter: chinese wine producers are saying they are focusing first on selling to the domestic chinese market, but say you should expect somewhere down the road to see chinese wines in the u.s. too. >> a great piece by seth. >> why can't they make wine? >> make wine, make happiness. >> and the do. >> and they do. >> seth doane in beijing, thanks. more than 70% of americans think they will be better off in 2016. people are making finances a priority in their new year's resolutions. the top three goals, saving more, spending less, and paying off debt.
7:35 am
schlesinger is here with how to make that happen. >> good morning. >> how do we make that happen? >> those three goals are pretty good goals. they're the basic concepts of financial planning. obviously saving more, paying down that credit card debt, living within your means, are all lofty goals. but also another part is paying attention, being engaged. whether that means figuring out which app to download on your phone, or which investment is going to be the invest for your 401(k). we really want people to focus on this, especially now that it feels like the recession is behind us. time to normalize our lives. >> one way that the recession is behind us is what the fed's decision on the interest rates did to the markets. >> this is going to be a huge year for investors. as the federal reserve continues to increase interest rates, markets will react. right now, based on the futures, that's the bond marketing, it's predicting 4 rate increases this
7:36 am
we'll end the year with 1% higher rates. great news for savers, maybe get better cd rates. not such great news for borrowers who may see the cost of loans start to increase. for investors, i do think it's going to be a dicey year. >> what if you have a mortgage? >> if you have a 30-year fixed rate mortgage, that's terrific. if you have an adjustable rate mortgage, your costs are going to crevasse rates inch higher. but rates are still low. now may be a good time to convert that adjustable rate mortgage into a fixed rate. why not make your life easier and do that? no complaining if your mortgage rate goes from 4 to 4.five5%. >> i never thought an adjustable rate mortgage was a good idea. i was freaked out by an adjustable rate mortgage when i was buying my house. >> when interest rates are low and you know you're going to
7:37 am
years, fantastic, i'm going to be going to a different place, i'm going to mobile, i'm not staying in this house, that's fine. but for most people, we recommend a fixed rate. >> is this a good year to buy a house? >> this is the year had more people are going to be able to buy a house. last year we didn't have a lot of houses for sale. the inventory was quite low. we're seeing more houses come on the market in 2016. hopefully prices stay reasonable. with rates low, i think that's a very good thing for most homeowners. >> what about irs changes for retirement in 2016? >> no changes, how about that? you're still at 18,000. a lot of people said to me, they didn't move it higher? very few people are putting $18,000 a year away. if you can, try to put that retirement account up by a percentage or two. put the account on auto-rebalance. make this automatic. make sure you don't let your emotions get away from you. >> jill schlesinger, thank you.
