(graphic) biden's bailing, a virtual gift to hillary clinton. who tweeted: "he's a great man and she's inspired by his optimism and commitment to change the world for the better."

(sot- meadows) "i think everybody's open to anybody who can unify the conference." (sot - brooks) "he is a father, he has young children, he does not have time to do the speaker's job as he has in the past." so what if they balk or if ryan himself, decides *not* to take the job? what's the 'plan b'?

"this committee is basically an arm of the republican national committee." ((from cnn's state of the union)) "with an overwhelming focus on trying to as they admitted drive down my poll numbers." so is she right? is it political? political science professor and veteran journalist richard benedetto says it's a congressional hearing so of course politics are at play.
richard benedetto/professor, american university "there's certainly some political nature to it. the republicans want to press it the democrats don't but the fact that the democrats don't want to press this that's political too." two republicans have also come forward and admitted the poltical nature of the investgation. nna: "i think there was a big part of this investigation that was designed to go after people, an individual, hillary clinton." maj. bradley podliska: "this has become a partisan investigation. i do not know the hyper focus on hillary clinton." but republican committee members insist they are simply on a fact finding mission. rep. mike pompeo/r-kansas "i'm convinced the american people will view that as being professional, complete and legitimate attempt to try to get answers on behalf of the families of the four dead americans." rep. trey gowdy/chairman, house select committee on benghazi/from cbs's face the nation "the seven members of my committee are much more focused on the four dead americans than we are anyone's presidential aspirations." for benedetto, the political nature is just the way washington works. "do you think that if condoleeza rice who had been secretary of state during the iraq war was
pushing her for her positions on iraq. of course they would." political or not - one thing's for sure - the show will go on. i'm kristine frazao siouxland news. larry>> still to come tonight on siouxland news at ten... why these northwest iowa college students are taking selfies... for a pretty good purpose...

their *stress levels* each day. larry>> a new study says there's a simple way to dramatically cut your health care costs... a combination of yoga, meditation and prayer. diana>> as molly shen reports... researchers say that reducing chronic stress could cut health costs *in half*. [duration:0'10"] ("when you see someone who's stressed and they go (inhales) or they're holding their breath. what we want to tell them to do is learn to breathe and soften into the belly.") the meditative breathing is meant to help them relax and focus on class - instead of their to do list. [notes:sot @ 22:29] [duration:0'08"]
("groceries, dishes, balancing the checkbook. all of that standard stuff can seem like you really have to schedule it.") the relaxation technique might also help keep them out of a doctor's office. a new study out of harvard says people who are trained in relaxation response methods - need health care less often - and could spend a whopping 43-percent less on procedures and lab tests. [notes:nats traffic] [duration:0'02"] (traffic) here's why. when you're stressed out - say because you're stuck in trafc - there's a shift in your immune system. you lose some of the cells that fight infection. [notes:sot @ 1:43] [duration:0'07"] ("as a result of having ongoing chronic stress, you are more prone to come down with chronic infections.") researchers say the fix is to trigger the opposite response in your body, by relaxing. [notes:sot @ 24:39] [duration:0'05"] ("getting alone, i listen to music. that's an instant door to my soul.") there's also prayer. the study's authors pointed out - there's no risk [notes:back to breathing] because relaxing can happen for free. [notes:nats @ 20:24]
[duration:0'02"] ("may you go gently.") diana>> with just five games until the g-pack playoffs northwestern's volleyball team returns to the court. and there's huge playoffs implications in our game of the week. western christian head coach travis koy-muh tells us how his team is preparing. sports is next. the entire state budgets of both texas and iowa could be funded with what washington wasted last year. so why no outrage? for one, most news organizations haven't bothered reporting on the g-a-o findings. the public can't complain what it doesn't know
investigations? are you kidding me? spending money - even if it's wasted -- is the most powerful thing they do. the three programs with the largest amount of money sent to improper recipients include $60 billion for medicare, . . . seventeen and a-half billion to medicaid . . . and the earned income tax credit program. in the e-i-t-c program, millions who don't pay federal income tax actually get money from uncle sam. for them, april 15th isn't tax day - it's pay day. in this case, people who don't officially qualify for the free money program received nearly $18 billion last year. to comment, go to behind the

affecting his team this week at practice. chris: you are playing really at a time where the four teams in this district really look like they have some of the best teams they've ever had. west lyon is good again like they seem to be every year. hinton has a historically great offense for them. and you're playing a ridge view team that's loaded with seniors. your team may be the best you've had since 2009 since you made a run to the state title. what does it say for you i mean what's it like playing in a year like this? kooima: it's exciting. like i said, every friday night has been important. having that significance of a game and that type of game every single week, it makes you as a team prepare as best you can. alright this friday night we have to be our best team. we have to be the best team this week. that's what
we're trying to get better every single day. and trying to be the best we can be on friday night. if we find a way to win tis district there's going to be a lot of pride on the line because this was a tough year, a tough district with a lot of great team. chris: this has probably been a different week than any week your kids have experienced. for high schoolers, when the spotlight is on them it can be exciting, exhilarating, but does it change the way you guys prepare, have you noticed anything different for better or for worse because wow everyone's watching to see what happens in this game? kooima: no, we haven't really seen a ton of difference except for the news stations being at practice and stuff. our guys are really focused on what they need to do to get better and i think that's a testament to my assistant coaches. we're focused on what we need to do not on the extra stuff. we call it outside noise. we don't want any outside noise to affect us. so we're making sure we're tuned in, get better for this week. ridge view is a tough opponent, a tough team. they bring a lot to the
table. like you said they have a ton of seniors. when you have senior leaders they're going to come prepared. they haven't made mistakes this year. i think that's a testament to their coaches. they haven't turned the ball over a lot. so that's going to be a challenge for us. we're excited for the challenge and we're hoping that good things will happen friday night. chris: you have a relationship going back with coach jeff de haan of ridge view. what do you expect from them and what's going to be key in this game? kooima: up front they have a really good offensive line. watching tape every single time i'm watctcng them they look better. when their quarterback needs to make throws he makes them. coach de haan he's a great coach. he's a great motivator. he's building up a program the way it needs to be done. it's just going to be an exciting night and knowing that i have that relationship with jeff and
