7:04 am
to dig itself out from an epic winter storm. schools are closed and the mayor is asking people to stay home. you can see why. there is no way a car could drive through side streets like this and the main roads are often full of pedestrians avoiding iced over sidewalks. >> while we have made some progress there is still a lot more to do. d.c.'s metro is back open, but only with limited service. amtrak is also running modified service in the northeast. snow fell for a solid day and a half. plows tried but couldn't keep up as the district and surrounding region turned wintry white. the national guard was activated and the city brought in 400 additional pieces of snow removal equipment. 69-year-old raymond tolleson volunteered to help dig out the elderly. he did their homes and eight more. >> senior citizens can't get out here and walk in the snow like this. >> the suburbs got it worse. some have more than three feet of snow on the ground.

7:06 am

7:10 am
charles grassley. it wasn't an endorsement, but still a blow to senate colleague ted cruz. the cruz campaign took aim at trump on another front, the embrace of government power to seize private property. >> i think eminent domain is wonderful. >> it made him rich. >> reporter: the essence of the campaign's new ad, that trump tried to bulldoze the home of an elderly woman it pave the way for a casino parking lot. >> it is a false commercial. i never took the house. eminent domain is something that is a positive thing, not a negative thing. >> reporter: cruz also continued to question trump's recent conversion to conservativism. >> if a republican candidate for president supported barack obama's stimulus and said the only problem is it needs to be bigger, is there any chance on earth that individual would actually stand up to the cronyism and cartel in washington/. >> reporter: a message amplyifyied by his newest supporter, glenn beck.
7:11 am
going to be a snowball to hell. >> reporter: despite the hype and attacks, trump made this admission on cbs' "face the nation". >> if he got the nomination, if everything was fine, i would vote for ted cruz. i would vote for ted cruz. >> you would? >> i was putting that in relationship to his place of birth. >> reporter: the des moines register, the state's largest newspaper looked past trump and cruz and endorsed marco rubio as the candidate who could, quote, chart a new direction for the gop. the register guessed the nominee correctly in the last four republican caucus endorsements. gayle? >> thank you very much, major. his name hasn't changed. sorry about that, major garrett. our battleground tracker in iowa finds democrats in a tighter race. bernie sanders leads hillary clinton by one point. 47 to 46%. but in new hampshire, the senator from neighboring vermont holds a 19-point lead. nancy cordes is covering the democratic campaign in
7:12 am
nation" moderator and cbs news political director james dickerson. let's talk about president obama doing an interview with politico's glen thrust. here is a portion of that interview. >> bernie came in with the luxury of being a complete long shot and just letting loose. >> right. >> i think hillary came in with the -- both privilege and burden of being perceived as the front-runner. and, you know, you're always looking at the bright shiny object that people don't -- haven't seen before. that's a disadvantage. >> interesting because he was the brigtht shiny object in 2008. what do you think? he's very popular there. >> i'm sorry, was he talking about the 2008 race or this race? as you point out, he was the bright shiny object and one of
7:13 am
2008, hillary clinton said, all this hope and change, that's all very nice. we need to think about the practical realities of governing. and you need somebody in there who knows how to make things work. and the obama forces used that against her and said she was thinking too narrowly and too bound by washington. now you have the former bright shiny object in the oval office, making the hillary clinton case. essentially saying, yes, bernie sanders is getting all of this enthusiasm because he's new, but you have to walk and chew gum as a president and there are practical realities you have to keep in mind. it is just a fantastic kind of full circular experience that is happening in the democratic party. >> nancy, you heard senator sanders acknowledge what many people know is that the reason people are responding to his campaign is because they're angry out there. but in iowa, you've been there so often what about the ground game? who has the better ground game? >> that's one thing that is so difficult to measure, norah, because both campaigns will throw a whole bunch of
7:14 am
strong their ground game is. they'll say we have this many paid staffers, this many volunteers, we're knocking on this many doors, making this many phone calls a week before the iowa caucuses. they can really spin those numbers any way they want. the only way to really test how effective their ground game is is on caucus night when we see what the final numbers show. what we do know is that hillary clinton's campaign has been at this longer than the sanders campaign. they have got not just the past year of experience, but they have got their experience from eight years ago to work on. >> so the story bubbled up over the weekend that new york -- former new york mayor mike bloomberg is thinking about getting in the race, he'll wait and see what happens as it progresses. whose campaign stands to lose the most, if he gets in? john, we'll start with you. >> i think it is hard to say. we don't really know. i think in the end of the day when it comes down to electoral votes, i think he hurts the republicans more.
7:15 am
votes in their column, but that's such a long way away. so, i don't know. >> it depends on whether republicans say i just can't vote for trump, i need to go for someone like michael bloomberg, another new york billionaire or takes votes away from a bernie sanders as a democratic nominee. >> they also were saying that if in fact hillary clinton is the nominee, he's less likely to enter. >> correct. >> i think there is a lot of less likely. fun thing to talk about. but reality a long way away. let's see when he starts trying to get on the ballot. >> thank you, john. thank you, nancy. >> our debate dream team together. seven people are recovering from injuries this morning after their american airlines flight hit severe turbulence. flight 206 took off sunday from miami, bound for milan, italy. the pilot made an emergency landing in canada. ambulances met the plane. three flight attendants and four passengers were taken to the hospital. >> the plane dropped. >> on the side and everything
7:16 am
yeah, it was pretty intense. >> it hit like a big dip and some flight attendants were, you know, without seat belts and hurt themselves. >> i was very thankful. you say your prayers and come here. it was answered. >> the other passengers are expected to continue their the matchup for super bowl 50 is carolina against denver. peyton manning and the broncos held on in the final seconds to be new england 22-18. cam newton and the panthers won the nfc title in a blowout. they beat arizona, 49-15. james brown of cbs sports is in denver where he watched sunday's afc title game. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. it was an outstanding matchup to say the least and kind of just to summarize what you just said, what a matchup. football fans may have seen the last matchup between tom brady and peyton manning, but as you mentioned about carolina, there
7:17 am
who is shining very brightly. >> here is brady, rolling out, rolling and throwing, tipped in the air. and it is intercepted! >> reporter: this may have been peyton manning's most satisfying victory in a long and storied nfl career. not because he beat tom brady and the patriots team that always seems to have his number, but because the 39-year-old manning doesn't always beat teams with his arm anymore. >> can you believe it? he's got a first down. >> he beats them with his experience. >> look at this. >> reporter: patriots star quarterback tom brady who always seems to thrive under the brightest of lights was harassed by a stifling denver defense all afternoon. >> he's taken down. >> reporter: this will be manning's fourth super bowl appearance and he's now the oldest quarterback to lead a team to the big game in nfl history. >> we go into our second super bowl in four years is very special. and just met by the entire team tonight, what an incredible effort by the patriots for us to beat that team today, very
7:18 am
>> he is in for the touchdown! >> reporter: but football is a young man's game. and the carolina panthers may have the best young quarterback in the national football league. >> newton steps into it. he's got brown wide open. >> reporter: cam newton and the carolina panthers dismantled the arizona cardinals in the championship game by 34 points. setting up a super bowl showdown between signal callers who are a generation apart. peyton manning is 13 years newton's senior, the largest age difference between super bowl starting quarterbacks in nfl history. >> i don't know who we're playing yet, but we'll be ready to go in two weeks. >> you're playing denver and peyton manning. did you ever think in the super bowl you would oppose him. >> oh, wow. we live in the moment now. we'll be excited. >> and excitement is the operative word. two quarterbacks who were the first overall draft choices in both manning and cam newton facing each other.
7:19 am
for an outstanding super bowl matchup. and, hey, look, though i know i'm throwing it back to gayle, i did hear on friday that nor whyah o'donnell wants to be in the booth. she can join the pregame show. good to talk to you. >> i e-mailed norah after the game to say do we need to send a paramedic to your house yesterday. that was such a good game. we're talking to you at 8:00, so much to discuss. thank you, sir. we look forward to that. >> looking forward to it. >> us too. police in california are hunting three dangerous escapees. ahead, how a suspected murderer and two other men cut their way out of a maximum security and we've got our coldest temps of the day right now. we've dropped to low 40s and even some chilly 30s in some neighborhoods. ................ yesterday's breezy north winds have mostly calmed down for the valley, but will keep bumping

surveillance video shows shaking in alaska from one of the strongest earthquakes there
7:40 am
it tossed merchandise off store shelves around anchorage. it lasted nearly a minute and no reports of injuries but four homes were destroyed by fire after gas pipes exploded. the 7.1 quake hit a peninsula, about 160 miles southwest of anchorage. people across southern alaska are bracing for more after-shocks this morning. >> i bet it seems a long time when the world is shaking. that's a long time. >> absolutely. a recent study shows women may be paying more for virtually the same products. the new york city department of consumer affairs revealed the big price gap after investigating. it is called from cradle to cane. it shows on average the women's version of exact same product cost 7% more than from the one for the men. but price discrimination is not limited to retail. michelle miller investigates the real cost to women.
7:41 am
been here before? >> reporter: one female producer and one male producer visited a handful of dry cleaners in new york city. they brought nearly identical 100% cotton button-down shirts in comparable sizes and requested the same service. >> yes, please. >> reporter: our female producer was charged at least twice as much in more than half of businesses visited and one, she was charged $7.50. while her male counterpart just $2.85. at another, she paid $3 more. but it happens at more than just dry cleaners. the new york city study found differences in clothing like these jeans. personal care products like these razors, and toys like this scooter. research shows that women paid more than men for similar products, 42% of the time. so what is this phenomenon of male/female pricing? >> well, gender-based pricing
7:42 am
or not for many years. >> reporter: todd marks for consumer reports has been researching this issue for years. >> you don't realize how badly you're getting ripped off or being taken advantage of as a woman because you become so conditioned to pay more. >> reporter: it's these pressers used after clothing is dry cleaned. they are designed for men. but owner of this cleaner ken soffy says it's not a justification. >> having a shirt laundered and machine pressed does not exist for women cuffs. >> just men? >> only for men. >> reporter: because the shirts don't get? >> because of that women are
7:43 am
>> reporter: while no federal law against this practice but it is illegal in new york, miami-dade county and in california. a statewide study found a gender tax costs women $1,351 more animalan annually but no laws to prevent it. >> one of the reasons is it's about the market and there is -- we don't know who is responsible for it. >> reporter: michael cohen is a trade lawyer who says part of the problem is the extra costs for women's products tacked on from the get-go. he found that women's clothing, shoes, and gloves often enter the country with a higher import tax than men. one example? men's sneakers were taxed at 8.5%, while women shoes at 10%. >> it might be $5 that you pay that is extra to uncle sam, but
7:44 am
and consumer, it could be 10, 12, $13. >> reporter: and cohen found it dates back to at least the mid 1800s when women's hats and gloves were taxed higher. he says, ultimately, will be consumers who hold the key to is going to change it. >> wow. michelle miller with that investigation. >> it's really outrageous. it's not just an added access tax on products that don't exist to men. the legislatures need to take a close look at it and create some parody. >> unbelievable. >> it's one of those things that make you want to start wearing charl charlie's clothes? somebody will figure this out. >> i'll bring in a shirt tomorrow. >> so generous and kind. thank you. the host of the academy awards responds to the diversity

7:58 am
something like bloomberg. >> i think there's a lot of l less >> yes. >> not just that. >> one of those things that make you go hm-mm? >> football fans may well have seen the last matchup between tom brady and peyton manning. also in carolina, there's a star >> how are you? >> super. >> gayle, i did hear on friday that norah o'donnell wants to be in the booth with jim nantz. look, she can come join the pregame show. >> i e-mailed norah after the game to say do we need to send a paramedic over to your house? today's "eye opener at 8" is presented by prudential. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. it is a slow commute this morning after the deadly weekend blizzard along the east coast. the storm killed at least 32 people, plows are struggling to clear streets in washington, d.c., about two feet of snow

8:00 am
weekend. and wild wood, a storm surge topping three feet carried boats into streets, while 50 mile-per-hour winds ripped away signs. >> we're at low tide and you can still see the water that's trapped in these areas. >> reporter: wild wood mayor said about 100 people were forced to evacuate. >> the fact that the water came up as high as it did caught a lot of people off guard. we didn't expect ts kind of tides. >> reporter: those tides crested above nine feet in some area, flooding roads across the south jersey shore, stranding vehicles and drivers. >> we seen a lot of docks on the road, flooding in the stores. >> reporter: cell phone video captured ice floes covering streets in several towns. at one point, 94,000 power outages were reported across the state. >> it was a big storm. >> reporter: on saturday, new jersey governor chris christie was confident in his state's
8:01 am
>> it's our 17th snow emergency in my six years as governor. so we know how to do this. >> reporter: but people in wild wood, like marissa rigby said more could be done. >> i don't know how he could possibly say that. i've never seen flooding this bad and i've been here five years. >> reporter: these floodwaters up and down the coast are expected to recede today. police here in barnegat tell us hower has finally been restored to everyone in this community. >> jericka, thank you so much. one week from the iowa caucuses, the cbs news battleground tracker shows donald trump back in front in the state's gop race, leading 39% to 34%. marco rubio is the only other candidate in double digits. our battle ground tracker finds bernie sanders one point ahead of hillary clinton in the iowa democratic contest. twice as many voters say clinton's policies are realistic. the former secretary of state is criticizing sanders
8:02 am
can get things done. sanders called the clinton campaign desperate. in iowa sunday he highlighted his plan to lower student loan interest rates and make public colleges tuition free. >> now, people say, well, that's a nice idea, santa claus. what else do you have to offer? you know how we're going to pay for it? by imposing a tax on wall street speculation. none of this stuff is radical. none of it is pie in the sky. the issue is not that i am being too idealistic. the issue is whether or not we have the courage. that is what this campaign is about. >> the democrats will share the stage tonight at a televised town hall forum in des moines. the matchup for super bowl 50 sets the stage for an epic contest between quarterbacks peyton manning and the denver broncos, going to the big game for the second time in three seasons. manning is the oldest
8:03 am
he's 39. he will face cam newton and the carolina panthers. this is his first super bowl and second in franchise history. james brown will host the super bowl today ahead of the big game in santa clara, california. he joins us once again from denver. j.b., good morning. that was such a great game. >> gayle. >> yes, sir. >> you know i love you very much. charlie and norah, i'm comfortable with their questions. i'm nervous with you. let me listen to you first. go ahead. >> why do you say that? >> that is quite a setup, mr. brown. i'm just going to talk to you about -- >> no, no, no. go ahead. >> j.b., stop talking. i'm going to talk to you about age, old man. we have peyton manning who's 39 years old. there's something disconcerting that 39 is considered old. cam newton is 26. who has the edge here, age or experience? youth or experience? >> you know what, that is always a unique matchup.
8:04 am
that plays out. cam newton is a bright and shining star. gayle, in layman's turns, he's playing on such an enthusiastic, juvenile, i mean that positive, high, and the rest of his team is following his lead. when he lost his top receiver at the top of the season, many people thought that would be the slide down for that offense. they've been anything but. they've been riding him. peyton manning, he's not the peyton manning of old in firms of physical talent but he's a cerebral talent. as long as he place within himself, they have a phenomenal defense. a lot of people are pulling for the old guy, the old sheriff. >> isn't this a contest between the carolina offense and denver defense? >> yes. >> hey, charlie, give carolina's defense a lot of credit as well, too. they play well. that denver defense is not being given enough credit. they are simply amazing, charlie, yes. >> ask tom brady. >> they were on fire yesterday. >> j.b., i looked at this, this
8:05 am
brady's career that he completed less than half of his passes and threw multiple interceptions in a game. the broncos shut the patriots down. can they shut down the panthers? they have the ability but, again, that carolina offense is playing lights out because of cam newton. and to charlie rose's point, look, that defense of denver, they played exceedingly well. look at what new england did. they were still there in the closing seconds of the game, even though tom brady was off balance all game long. you've got to play a full 60 minutes against them. >> in the stadium yesterday, didn't they think the patriots could possibly pull it out at the last second? it was thrilling to watch yesterday. >> which is a real tribute to the patriots. because they are a dynasty in an era of designed parody in the nfl. they had a shot, yes. my producer was saying but for that missed extra point by the patriots, it could have been a different ball game for sure.
8:06 am
difference. >> absolutely. >> charlie, isn't that all the case? and certainly the guy with the best rolodex on the globe would know that as well. >> i'm noticing you're biased toward smart, beautiful women. at this table i come in third. i've noticed that with regularity. >> no, no, no. >> i'm telling you, i don't blame you, my friend. every day i get to come here and sit between them. you sit there with your green envy, okay? >> charlie, okay, i'm too dark to blush, charlie. if you're seeing green, that's saying something. you told me in pasadena that you have the greatest job in america with norah and gale. >> i do. >> you had the biggest cheese eating grin on your face. >> james brown, is cam newton the best quarterback in the league do you think, today? >> you know what, i'm low to say somebody is the best. tom brady has been playing at a high level forever. cam newton is the brightest star in the league right now.
8:07 am
is the mvp. let's see him do it over a period of time. right now, what a great story for this year. >> well said, brother. >> what a great game. >> love it. >> thank you, james brown. >> what time do you want me for the preshow? >> hey, whatever time chris licht allows you to come, you're welcome. >> i heard he's opposed but he may be moving towards coming out. >> that's the way we like it. >> that's what we think. can't a little awkwardness bring co-workers together to help the team? the company banking on bliour coldest temps of the day right now. we've dropped to low 40s and even some chilly 30s in some neighborhoods. ................ yesterday's breezy north winds have mostly calmed down for the valley, but will keep bumping around along the colorado river valley today.
8:08 am
we'll have mostly sunny skies. temps near 60 today. in fact, plenty of sunshine to start off the week... then some midweek high clouds. and a really nice warm-up how snow shoveling can be hard on your body. that's next.

8:12 am
of h dr. tara narula is a cardiologist at lennoxville hospital in new york city. good to see you as always, dr. tara. why is the snow so hard? you seldom hear about people dying shoveling dirt. >> that's true. first of all, the people that are at risk are a certain population. those who are over 55 sedentary who have known coronary heart disease and risk factors. what happens is a perfect storm of snow shoveling which increases blood pressure and heart rate. the cold temperatures which constrict your blood vessels and can cause the blood to be more thick and prone to clotting. that can increase risk. in addition, using your arms as most of the muscle work instead
8:13 am
strain. that can raise blood pressure. we have a rhythm. people feel motivated to get the job done and they push through. so all of these factors can contribute. >> what do you do? >> there's a couple things you can do. wear warm clothing, pace yourself and take breaks. don't eat a big meal, smoke a cigarette or drunk alcohol before you go out and shovel. >> at 6:00 a.m. >> you never know. >> try to tackle the problem little by little. so it's not such a huge pile at the end. push the snow instead of lifting it and know what it feels like, know what the symptoms are so if you start to feel chest pain, shortness of breath, sweaty, nausea, you want to get to the hospital and see a doctor. >> is there something specific about the snow shoveling? my initial reaction is maybe
8:14 am
to have a heart attack soon anyway, had they gotten on the treadmill and run quickly for ten minutes. they were predisposed. >> it's possible. it is that combination of the cold weather and type of activity you're doing with the shoveling that tends to raise the risk. >> if you have someone in your family who is not in great health. >> age is a factor, too. >> age is a factor. >> help them out. ask a neighbor to help you. >> thank you. >> dr. tara narula, appreciate it. anthony weiner quit congress because of sexting. now a new documentary about him could affect hillary clinton's political future. that's next on "cbs this morning."st want to talk to women about my decision to use poise. i've had four kids. ladies, who leaks a little when they laugh? uh-uh, uh-huh. you see? switching to poise helps make life easier. roll that thing! get 3 in 1 protection for dryness, comfort, and odor control. and unlike period pads,

8:39 am
people didn't know each other's names any more so i thought that was crazy because i love this, like, tight-knit community and wanted to keep that up. >> blind date in the workplace this was your idea? >> yeah. i thought of it months ago. >> reporter: manager mary grace antonio launched a program last summer. >> a lot of talking and a lot of communication going on. sometimes it's not -- with everybody. and that is what kind of is -- trying to get people who would never really work with this kind of team so just meet. >> reporter: and it's strictly work-related and not personal matchups or dates made out of this? >> no, not at all. it's get to notice people. >> reporter: so antonio began playing match-maker first by asking volunteers who were then grouped together and sent on lunch or coffee dates. >> there is people from all different departments that sign up. everyone from, like, people who just start and even executives sign up for these blind dates and i try to mix and match people who wouldn't usually be

8:42 am
i think that on that -- for that alone i think is a good idea. >>specially when you work with a lot of people. we work with thousands of people. >> yes. >> sometimes we never get a chance to meet them. >> this is in the same forum as people with open offices and people see each other and not going on elevators and stuff like that? >> exactly. >> get to know your coworkers in a new and exciting way. >> they are not encouraging romance. >> it would be awkward. >> but if it happens, it's all good, all good. >> friends to benefit. demarco, thank you. turning the blizzard into a blast on social media. we will look at the most amazing snowmen.
