7:58 am
as you're going to see, the emotional wounds are still very fresh. >> two of them came back and saw us and -- >> it's basically a giant ipad that lets you order your meals exactly as you'd like it. >> sausage mcmuffin with cheese and hash brown. you can throw in the pancakes, too, they're light and fluffy. i haven't had it in a while but it is really good. >> how many points is that on weight watchers? >> 15. >> you already checked. >> yes, i did check. >> today's "eye opener at 8" apresented by prudential. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. the two top democratic presidential candidates are intensifying their battle for votes and votes in next week's iowa caucuses. that race is very close but a new poll this morning shows hillary clinton with a 14-point sanders.
7:59 am
democrats between 18 and 24 years old overwhelmingly go for bernie sanders. one young voter asked clinton at a town hall last night why her supporters are not more committed to her. >> it feels like there's a lot of young people like myself who are very passionate supporters of bernie sanders and i just don't see the same enthusiasm from younger people for you. in fact, i've heard from quite a few people my age that they think you're dishonest. but i'd like to hear from you on why you feel the enthusiasm isn't there. >> well, i think it really depends on who you're seeing and talking to. i'm totally happy to see young people involved in any way. that's what we want. and we want to have a good primary to pick a nominee and then we want to have everybody join together to make sure we win in november. which after all, is the purpose
8:00 am
you have to have somebody who is a proven db proven, proven fighter. somebody who has taken them on and won and kept going and will do that as president. that's why i hope you'll reconsider. >> all right. in new hampshire, a voter asked chris christie why he was campaigning instead of managing the storm cleanup in new jersey. the governor spent the weekend in his home state where there was significant flooding. >> it's already done. tell me why you think it isn't. >> i have family calling me >> where? >> all over the state. >> all over the state. state. i don't know what you expect me to do. you want me to go down there with a mop. >> christie then offered to check personally with the woman's family and friends in new jersey. >> we're tracking two cities, very different recoveries this morning from the massive blizzard in washington, d.c.,
8:01 am
schools are still closed three days after the storm. while in new york city, life has started to return to normal. both cities received similar amounts of snow. kris van cleave is in washington and david begnaud is in new york to show us why there's such a contrast in the two cities. let's start in new york. good morning. >> they're still working to clean the streets here in queens where we are this morning. residents are frustrated by the city's slow response, most people doing one of these with a shovel. they've gotten 25 inches of snow in queens, the average for the year and they got it all at once. new york is a city that never sleeps. and barely flinches in a blizzard. before there was even a dusting, city officials tapped into the $77.5 million annual snow budget and deployed 579 salt spreaders. at the heart of the storm saturday, new york banned travel
8:02 am
that didn't stop some new yorkers from finding creative ways to get around. by sunday, most main streets were clear and monday it was back to work with people ignoring the snow and each other as usual. >> i know other cities struggled and a lot of them are not blessed with the kind of public employees, the number and the quality and the highly trained public employees that we have. >> reporter: i think the struggle the mayor was talking about here may have well been washington, d.c. kris van cleave, anything back to normal there yet? >> well, it depends on where you are. right here is not back to normal. federal workers are not working today. that's not normal. but it's a good thing they're not on the roads. those who are are finding it slow going because of snow removal process. and, look, there's a lot of snow on the ground here. d.c. officials say you have to keep in mind they haven't dealt with a storm that dumped this
8:03 am
since 1922. >> you look at manhattan got more snow than d.c. and they, in much quicker order, were back to schools in session, roads being cleared. is it an unfair comparison? >> it's an unfair comparison. >> reporter: these two cities couldn't be more different. with a population of 669,000, d.c. is smaller than the 8.5 york. it has a fraction of the big apple's cash. washington, d.c. has a budget of $6.2 million a year for snow cleanup. 1/12 of what new york can spend. this weekend, the metro was close and people had to find their cars before they could start big digging them out. schools have been closed and novice sledders became capital ground hazards. >> are you all right? >> reporter: at least one d.c.
8:04 am
politician back at work. >> mr. president, what did you think of snow-poolips? >> boston's mayor said he feels bad for the district and offered to send snowplows. there's pavement right here. you just can't get the car out because of the snow bank. in april we do get cherry blossoms, galeyle. >> d.c. saying let's be clear, compare apples to apples. it's a very different situation. they're working round the clock. >> they'll get it. >> thank you again, chris. washington, you're in washington and david, you're in new york. we thank you both. el nino put some residents in california on the brink of

to go. danger had become too great as the cliff started falling dramatically into the ocean. >> you have to get out. >> reporter: michelle montoya moved into two months ago to an apartment with an unparalleled ocean view. >> where are you going to go. >> i have no clue. >> reporter: the cliffs can rise more than 100 feet and the base is pounded by high surf, the bluff is undermined. that's why these big bolders have been brought in. but when powerful winter storms hit, the cliffs take a beating. that left the buildings teetering on the edge. two of the apartment buildings have been sitting empty since 2010 when they were deemed dangerously uninhabitable. since then, four years of drought in california meant few storms until this winter when heavy rain returned. pacifica has seen this before.
8:11 am
washed away cliffs, leaving several houses hanging on edge. one collapsed on to the beach below. others had to be torn down. he knew the building where he lived would one day meet the same fate. >> here it is. the old saying goes if you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space. >> reporter: the order to evacuate the apartment building was criticized by the building's owner at a city council meeting last night. >> to throw all the residents and tennants out in a couple hours is really unfair. it's very hard on them and i'm going to be filing an appeal on this decision made by the city. >> reporter: the city manager insisted the danger is real. >> we knew this day was going to come. we didn't know when. we were putting it off as long as possible, not an action we took lightly. >> reporter: earlier in the day, michael mchenry was anxious to move.

8:18 am
the health care jobs are dominant. 60% of the jobs on our list were health care related. technology is the big winner the last five years. it hasn't gone away. it's still there but health care has come up relatively speaking. computer science, information tech, all of those jobs that relate to the digital world. >> if you're a parent looking at this and you want to steer your child into a good paying job, what are one of the things you learn, science, right? >> science and math. eat your broccoli. you have to do your math homework. that's one of the things that comes through every single job in the top 20 is science-related. you can't be an occupational therapist without a background in statistics and computers. we're not just looking at a job today. we're taking a look at a longer term horizon. it's not just a job. it's a career? when you do that, what stands

8:28 am
something that has buzz value, is going to be talked about, and we need to have more of a risk. i still get chills thinking about the experience of seeing that ad for the first time. >> many years ago i was invited to do a commercial for pepsi and it launched their new can. it was one of those commercials that had everything. it had a great music, it was sexy and hot but funny. in the end the kids go, is that a great new pepsi can or what. and i think that's why people loved it so much. >> my favorite is a spot we did in 2003 for trident. >> now, then, would you recommend trident for your patients who choose gum? >> why didn't the fifth dentist recommend trident.
