here comes another wave. take you back to yesterday. it was about the wind and the rain. we got hammered in the tampa st. pete area. up to 9 inches of water. it was the second wettest june day on record in tampa. we had people pulled from cars in clear water. coast a.m. flooding. that's through tonight as well as a heavy surf advisory. we had tornadoes. not unusual with landfall. at least a dozen reports of tornadoes. one of those was a killer in highlands, florida. we also lost a gentleman to the rip current up in orange beach. today, it's more of the same. debby is not moving. wind, also the potential for severe weather. tornado watch for a lot of the state at least until 2:00. that will be likely extended. as long as we have the wave action like this and it this on shore wind, ann, more beach erosion. that will be the story along the west coast beaches. not damage to the hotel or beachfront properties. the locals are saying this is
the worst flooding they've seen since the super storm of 1993 almost 20 years ago. ann in. >> important to be very, very careful there. mike seidel, thank you so much this morning. >> let's see where the storm is heading. al roker is upstairs tracking the storm. >> good morning, guys. first time we've had four named storms before july 1st. this is a record setter. as mike mentioned, we have a tornado watch until 2:00 for much of central and northern florida. right now, debby is 90 miles, south, southwest of appalachia cola. winds are 50 miles per hour. it's stationary. i've never seen in recent memory, yesterday afternoon it was heading west. now it's moving straight to the north. but it's going to take its own sweet time. here's the projected path of debby over the next three days. doesn't really move that much. by wednesday, 2:00 a.m., it is still off the coast of florida and with 65 miles per hour wind, we don't see landfall maybe until early thursday morning. with a slow mover like that, that means by friday, we're
still looking at it inland. it's just barely inland and with a slow mover, that means that wind and that wave action continues. the rain continues. locally we could see 15 to 20 inches of rain by friday. also the threat of tornadoes. it is going to be a major, major weather maker and in fact, it looks like the drought will be busted with this thing. however, it's going to be a very strong price to pay for losing that drought because we're going to be looking at massive flooding, beach erosion, big problems from central and northern florida and the west coast of florida. willie? >> al, thanks. we'll get to the rest of your forecast in just a moment. meantime, out west in colorado, it is much too dry and things have gone from bad to worse. hundreds of homes were destroyed, thousands of people forced to flee. nbc's miguel alma ger is in colorado springs. >> willie good morning. the fire exploded over the weekend. what started as a small blaze quickly multiplied feeding on
bone dry brush and fanned by hot gusty winds. >> overnight, flames lept into the air and tore across the mills near colorado springs. the waldo canyon fire threatening homes, closing in on cabins and scorching some of the region's most popular campgrounds. sunday, 11,000 people forced to flee the flames. >> this is a day or a couple days we've long dreaded would come. >> this out of control blaze is just one of eight infernos burning across colorado. saturday in estes park, nearly two dozen homes were destroyed. the most destructive blaze in state history claimed one life and more than 250 homes near fort collins. two weeks old, 83,000 acres have been torched here. >> we knew we had to get out of there. >> colorado's governor said half the country's firefighting fleet is trying to beat back the flames in his state alone. >> this is dry, hot weather that the -- the wind is going to pick
up. the fuel is very, very flammable. and colorado isn't the only tinderbox. this morning, firefighters in new mexico, arizona, utah and california are all on the frontlines. a fast and deadly start to a fire season far from over. >> back here in colorado, the waldo fire has charred roughly 3600 acres this blaze is 0% contained. one of the big concerns is going to be winds and of course, colorado which is baking in 100-degree temperatures. >> miguel alma ger in colorado springs. >> here's ann again. now to the latest in the jerry sandusky case. his lawyers say they plan to appeal his conviction. and that's just part of the legal drama set to play out over the coming weeks and months. nbc's michael isikoff has been covering this case from the beginning. michael, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, ann. jerry sandusky is now safely in jail here. but the fallout from his conduct is far from over.
while convicted child abuser jerry sandusky remains on suicide watch today, pennsylvania's top law enforcement official signals there could be more charges against others to come. attorney general linda kelly oversaw the sandusky case. >> i think that this investigation continues. i thinkt's associated with this case that can tell you that we've been developing information even after the grand jury presentment. >> reporter: penn state is to the he cuss of multiple investigations into whether former top school officials covered up sandusky's conduct and could have stopped him years ago. even among the jurors there was concern. juror number 5, josh harper. >> penn state didn't do the action, but could they have prevented further victims? sure. >> reporter: juror number 11, ann van current. >> all i can say is i wish that
something -- that had gone a step further. >> reporter: former athletic director tim curley and former vice president gary schultz are facing perjury charges relating to what they knew about a 2001 shower incident involving sandusky and a young boy reported to them by former graduate assistant mike mcqueary. sources say kelly's office is reviewing e-mails showing that former penn state president graham spanier agreed that it would be, quote, humane to sandusky not to report the mcqueary allegation to local authorities. curly, schultz and spanier all deny wrongdoing. >> if those in power at penn state had taken action until early 2000s then my client would not have been molested in 2007 and 2008. >> reporter: legal experts say with an endowment of $1.8 billion, penn state has deep pockets that will make it a prime target for civil suits filed by sandusky's victims. >> based on other judgments in
sex abuse cases in pennsylvania, we could be talking about tens of millions of dollars at least. >> reporter: in the statement, penn state it plans to set up a progra program to privately ex pe tishsly and fairly address the victims' concerns and compensate them for claims relating to the university. >> penn state is now in a legal battle with its insurance company over who is going to pay those claims and if it loses, students' tuition and state taxpayer funds could end up picking up the tab to compensate the victims of jerry sandusky. ann? >> michael isikoff this morning. michael, thank you. pennsylvania attorney general linda kelly is now joining us exclusively. her team prosecuted the sandusky case. madam attorney general, good morning to you. >> good morning, ann. >> other alleged victims of jerry sandusky have now come forward. is it possible that there will be more criminal prosecutions regarding jerry sandusky?
>> well, we have said from the beginning that we continue to investigate this case. and i think that it is known that there have been more victims that will come forward. but at this time, i wouldn't want to speculate on future charges. >> can you confirm that there is an ongoing grand jury investigation into this? >> there is an ongoing investigation, yes. >> late in the trial, we heard that matt sandusky, the adopted son of jerry sandusky, was prepared to testify for the prosecution. why did you not call him to the stand to testify? >> well, i think that that information probably came from lawyers that represent matt sandusky and it's my understanding that he has two lawyers that are representing him, and those lawyers are fair to comment on matt sandusky's situation. and there could be any number of reasons in any given case why a defendant may or may not be called. >> are you saying that the
prosecution did not have a right to call him without the defense calling him first? >> no, no. i'm not saying that. i'm saying that it's a prosecutorial decision as to when to call a witness. i think the information you have as far as him being called as a witness comes from privately retained attorneys that have made comments to that effect. >> all right. moving on, jerry sandusky's lawyer says he did not have enough time to adequately defend his client. do you believe he had enough time to defend jerry sandusky? >> to answer you succinctly, yes. i think all the parties in in case knew from the beginning that the judge intended to move this case along quickly. and the prosecution was actually gratified that that was happening, that there was a speedy trial that took place here, particularly because mr. sandusky who had committed these horrific crimes was not in custody. so we were anxious to bring the case to a conclusion and to move
to have his bond revoked and taken into custody. >> sandusky faces a maximum of 442 years in prison. what will your prosecution team ask for at sentencing? >> i think that our team, our prosecution team will ask the judge to fashion a sentence that reflects the horrific acts that mr. sandusky committed to take into consideration the number of victims that are involved here and the fact that he really does represent a clear and present danger to the community and hopefully that the sentence will reflect that. but of course, that's the province of the court and sentencing is certainly up to the discretion of the court. >> all right. pennsylvania attorney general, linda kelly. linda, thank you so much for joining us this morning. >> you're very welcome. now, let's get a check on the rest of the top stories this morning from natalie morales at the news desk. >> good morning, willie and ann and good morning everyone. all eyes are on the supreme court today as decisions on president obama's landmark health care reform bill and
arizona's immigration law could come down as early as this morning. nbc's justice correspondent at the supreme court with more. pete, good morning. >> two huge decisions natalie that could affect millions of people and the presidential campaign on arizona's tough immigration law. the court may well strike down parts of it, but let stand other parts that require police to check the immigration status of anyone they detain. on the health care case, the key question is whether the central requirement of the law that all americans buy insurance is unconstitutional and if it is, how much of the rest of the law can survive. we should have the answers to all these questions by thursday at the latest. the court's likely last day of the term. natalie? >> pete williams there at the supreme court. thank you. egypt's new president-elect islamic's mohammed morsi is talking about restoring diplomatic ties with iran. egypt's first freely elected president is starting to form

houston. the whons shot the video didn't want to be identified but said the snpts called himself an up and coming mexican artist looking to honor picasso's work. >> went up to the painting without fear and spray painted it and walked off. >> reporter: police say they know who did it, prosecutors have charged 22-year-old orio with criminal mischief and graffiti, third-degree felonies. detectives are investigating whether he may have had accomplices. >> this was bold, reckless, blatant. one of those in your face kinds of crimes. >> reporter: the suspect used a stencil to spray paint a picture of a bull with "conquest" in spanish. police zeroed in on him after getting a tip. part of their investigation included his facebook page where he posted a link to news coverage about the vandalism. there's also a picture of the word conquist ta, the same word spray painted on the
>> good morning. we're coming to you as the u.s. supreme court has just handed down a crucial decision on the constitution at of arizona's immigration law. it was signed into law but a u.s. district judge block it its elements at issue is whether states can enforce federal immigration laws. it's a complicated ruling as we understand. we have pete williams at the courthouse in washington trying to sort it out for us. good morning and tell us how it came down. what the supreme court said is that most of the law that was challenged is unconstitutional but buy a 5-3 vote the court has upheld a provision in the law that says police officers in
arizona must check the immigration status of any one they arrest before that person can be released. 5-3, justice kennedy writing the majority opinion, justices thomas, eliteo and scalia dissenting. that's eight. this is one that elena kagan sat out because she had worked on this case before she came to the supreme court. so three other provisions of the law that were before the court were struck down, two of them made it a state crime to do something in arizona that was not a crime under federal immigration law. to look for work and to be in the state without papers, the court also struck down a very controversial part of the law that said police officers in arizona can arrest someone without a warrant if they think someone has done something that violates federal immigration law. so, three of the four provisions declared unconstitutional, one part held up. and remember natalie, this is not the end of the court fight over the arizona law because there are civil lawsuits
pending. this was one filed by the justice department. there are other lawsuits pending in arizona that challenge the law as racial profiling, those are now working their way through the courts. this ain't over yet, natalie. >> absolutely not. let me bring in our today's legal correspondent savannah guthrie. so most disputed provision in this arizona law is the stop and check part of that law and that's the part the justices upheld. how surprising is that? >> it's somewhat of a surprise. i think based on oral arguments that was an expectation this law would be upheld because there was skepticism on both the liberal side of the court and the conservative side of the court of the government's position, the federal government trying to strike down the law. yet they have struck down the majority of it but upheld that provision that got most of the attention, the ability of police officers in arizona to determine the immigration status of anybody they have lawfully stopped. now, as pete mentioned, there is a lot of litigation to come. one of the reasons why this is so controversial was because
people thought this is going to lead to racial profiling. there hasn't been a racial profiling case before the court. this law hasn't gone into effect. once it goes into effect you can bet there will be lawsuits and some of those equal protection issues will be litigated. >> thank you. again our thank you to pete williams as well. we'll have much more all day on msnbc and nightly news with brian williams. most of you return to today and to your regularly scheduled programming. in donations have poured in for karen klein the school bus monitor bullied. we'll talk to her coming up. check out this video, a bear cub found in a garage. who came in to save it, it's mom. after your local news. and who doesn't want 50% more cash? ugh, the baby. huh! and then the baby bear said, "i want 50% more cash in my bed!" phhht! 50% more cash is good ri... what's that. ♪ you can spell.

the defense claiming prosecutors broke the law by putting acknowledged lies before a jury. we'll keep you posted. time to check in on the weather. meteorologist christina loren, beautiful outside. >> just beautiful, jon. you are exactly right. we had a full deck of clouds, this is what's left of the marine layer, breaking apart, the sun is shining. temperatures are going to remain cool. this is san jose, a beautiful clear start here. and although that sunshine is decepti deceptive, only the 70s today. 70 degrees in places like fremont, about 73 in san jose, 68 in santa cruz and 62 degrees in santa rosa. as we head through tonight by about 9:00 p.m., mostly cloudy, an area of low-pressure on the way. we meet back here between 5 and 9:00, after that, though, the sun will break out and warm us into the upper 70s and mid-80s return by wednesday. we'll cool you off and level off thursday through friday. nice and comfortable through the weekend. make those plans though it's monday, mike.

in the central florida community known as the villages, population 5,000, main street often has more quirks than cars. there are an estimated 40,000 carts here, some running on gas getting 50 miles to the gallon. others all electric. >> insurance is less, registration is less. of course you're not using any gas. >> drive what looks a lot like a smart car, but this is a chinese built electric vehicle called a candy cocoa. >> it has all the modern convenience including a radio, ac, airbags. >> how far can you go? >> you can go 40 mimes on one charge. >> he says he takes about eight hours to recharge. yes, it is a two-seater. just to conduct our interview with them in motion, we had a chase vehicle. >> it has headlights, a windshield and safety belts but that's about it.
>> the auto industry called this class of car an ls v low speed vehicle. recent crash tests for lsv cars are not pretty. >> when lou at those crash tests, it's kind of scary. >> yes, i have to agree with that. but you plug in, plug into your house. >> he sells ls v some as much as $13,000, says price swings is a motivator. >> this would be nice for us. >> in maryland where parking is a challenge. >> only cost about $1.50 ra day for a vehicle. >> russell has a fleet of 13 cruiser. he shuttles folks to find a place to spark anywhere they want to go for free. costs covered by advertising. >> it's a niche. but the niche is getting bigger every day. >> reporter: in ft. lauderdale the judge commutes every day. >> i have a traditional gas
automobile. >> reporter: before the electric car he used four tanks a month. now he drives the old car so racial he only fills up once a month. >> four bucks a gallon, $4 a gallon, it's adding up. >> reporter: okay. so ann and willie, this sounds like a good idea until you hit the weather. i could see you tooling around manhattan because the weather is beautiful. here, not so much. >> it's pretty darn cute, nonetheless. kerry sanders, thanks so much for that report. okay. coming up next, reality bites or does it? why vampires are hotter than ever these days coming up right after this. hi, i'm phil mickelson. i've been fortunate to win on golf's biggest stages. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit, even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept, suppresses your immune system,
it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if, while on enbrel, you experience persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. [ phil ] get back to the things that matter most. ask your rheumatologist if enbrel is right for you. [ doctor ] enbrel, the number one biolog medicine prescribed by rheumatologists. i want to look natural, not naked! but all you need is 3. lashblast for volume, outlast -- for kissing... simply ageless to help you look easy breezy beautiful covergirl. simit's about time we made look our homes work for us. so let's make our dryers do the ironing.

for a victorian era box a vampire hunter would kill for. a pistol for close contact. miniature bottles containing garlic, holy water and -- >> holy earth or consecrated ground. >> there is a prayer book and rosary beads. >> a crucifix. there we are. that certainly works, doesn't it? >> reporter: and in a hidden compartment. >> four stakes. so you've got four of those. >> one vampire box was sold in america last year for $25,000. jonathan ferguson wants one. >> down the hill, the church yard where key attacks take place. >> reporter: i caught up with him where in the original story dracula was. he wants the box not to slay the
undead but as a cultural artifact for his museum. >> for that reason they are a fascinating reflection of popular culture and what people think about vampires. >> vampire lore goes back a long way as we found out last year on a visit to transylvania, the belief in the undead there very much alive. >> how did the myth of the vampire originate in this country. >> back in the 18th century people were complaining they were haunted by undead creatures. >> reporter: just last week in bulgaria, two ancient bodies uncovered that had been staked in a vampire burial. bids for the vampire slayer box went to three times the entry price, his bid topping $11,000 is good. he may never need to use the contents of the box, but it is one more relic that helps keep the myth of the undead alive.

i think they are narrow minded monsters to be perfectly honest with you and i think their parents should be ashamed of them. >> two of the students have since sent klein letters of apology. >> i cannot believe i did that. i'm sorry for being so mean and i will never treat anyone this way again. >> however, klein says she is reticent to believe they are heartfelt. >> not really. i think they could be better than what they did. >> district administrators plan to pursue disciplinary actions against all four students who taunted klein but she says she does not want them to face criminal charges. over the weekend there was a hometown rally to support the grandmother of eight. >> tonight we'll celebrate a woman of courage, one who internalized mistreatment and didn't complain. >> when we last spoke to klein a fund-raiser had just been started to send her on vacation. >> i am amazed. it's like, wow, there's a whole world out there that i didn't

i've gotten so many notes from people who have been bullied, who have been very hurt, you know. my heart goes out to these people. i would like to take every one of them and tell them how sorry i am. >> how long did it go on for you? how long of a period? >> well, never that bad. i mean, there would be occasionally -- kids are only on the bus for like 15 minutes tops. and sometimes they would be preoccupied with their phones. and then all of a sudden they turned to me, and it was only just a little while ago. >> we know you have since we last talked to you here on "today," you've received written apologies from two of the boys and from one of the mothers and an in person apology from one of
the boy's fathers rainfall right. >> do you accept these apologies or do you want more? >> i would like to eventually ask them why they did it. >> you want an explanation. >> an apology and an explanation. >> michelle, when you saw this video, what was the worst moment for you? >> i actually did not watch the whole video. when the boy touched her ear, that was -- as soon as he touched her, it was just over. i had to turn it off. i can't believe somebody would do that to my mother. >> so what do you want besides having them explain why this happened? what do you want that would maybe protect other people, that would stop this kind of behavior that you say has caused other people to talk about their own
bullies. what do you want done? >> i want kids to stop bullying. maybe they can start up a new class in school to teach these kids not to do stuff like that. like i say, they are not all bad kids. i thought maybe i would go back, because they aren't all bad. i enjoy my job. >> you're thinking when school starts again in the fall, you would go back to becoming a school bus monitor. >> maybe. >> let's talk about this huge amount of money. by the way, the window for donating has not closed yet. people can still donate. what will you do with that money? >> are you serious? what would anybody do with that money. i'd like to invest. donate. >> charity. >> take care of my kids, my

you wanted to take this role, you play a scientist, an evil guy, in a way so believable. how tough was it to do with lizard skins around you. >> hard to show feelings as a nine foot lizard. but the journey there was important, people kind of feel for this guy because he is in a sense kind of a surrogate father to peter. they are both affected by the same science. one becomes a spider everyone fancies. the other becomes a lizard who no one does. >> we've run out of time. very quickly, we have to say hello quickly to the director. are you ready for this? opening weekend coming up? are you ready for the adulation. >> a great ride with these people. i have no reason to fear. it's been great. there's an enthusiasm around the world. >> this movie is going to rock their socks off. i'm telling you. >> we have a proclamation from the office of the mayor of the city of new york. basically this is michael r. bloomberg, mayor of city of new

>> i don't think so. normally you overenter for events you qualify for at the trials. he'll cut that down just like ryan will. he is swimming 400 im today in an event he said he would never swim again. that is an event he could add to his haul. he could potentially swim another event. >> he has a big rival with him. ryan lochte has beaten michael phelps. how does that rivalry play out in the pool. >> ryan has been the best swimmer on the planet in the last three years and i think he's really hungry. but now he's the hunted. before he was the hunter. there was a lot more pressure on him today than it has been the last three years. he really wanted to become the best swimmer in the world and now he is but he has michael phelps ahead of him. michael is all about the olympic games. everything in between is just preseason for him. now it's the big-time. >> on the women's side, natalie
has a chance to become the most decorated female american swimmer of all time. how does london look for her? >> it's unbelievable how much she's flying under the radar. i admire her skills. 11 medals over two olympic games. she has a chance to add to that as well. a lot of competition, backstroke 2004, 2008. her best event is loaded here in the united states. it may be tough to make the team. >> he haven't mentioned 17-year-old missy franklin, a name everybody is talking about. rowdy gaines, thank you so much. you can watch olympic trials at 8:00, 7:00 central tonight. also additional coverage on nbc sports network. up next, andrew garfield, the new ama

that's my voice, 3d. i just watched that clip. >> all the time. okay. let's not talk about that. let's talk about why you picked this role. you really wanted it. we make earlier must have of the fact you kind of lobbied for this role. you say when you were younger spider-man spelled hope for you. hope for what? >> well, i think he's an example and symbol of protection and remembering all of us as human beings are the same. we need someone to look out for us. a symbol of a hero in each and every one of us. the person that wants to protect the underdog and wants to, you know, fight for justice, the human choice to fight for justice. it's just a beautiful symbol. >> and against bullies as we saw peter parker had to deal with. did you have to deal with
bullying. >> between six and 12 i saw bullies and witnessed it. it's also a very, very huge kind of worldwide issue that young people have to deal with. it's wonderful having a teenage example of a hero. spider-man, a kid like i was, all these guys are, these gorgeous people out there. so i think he means so much to so many because of that. he's a symbol of doing the right thing and protecting each other and living in a community as opposed to individuals. >> absolutely right. you know, andrew garfield, i hope you're ready but your life is about to change. you were spectacular in this movie. thank you so much, "the amazing spider-man" hits theaters on july 3rd. this is "tod onst moment." this is "today" nbc. ♪ ♪

9/11. both pat and marie were deeply affected. one night in bed he turned to marie and revealed his thoughts. he wanted to quit his multi-million dollar football career and fight for his country. >> there was something in me that i knew that was the path he would take. when you know somebody like we knew each other, i understood why he felt compelled to join. >> why do you think he felt compelled? >> he was definitely one of those people who felt like, you know, if there's something you believe in or something you see is wrong in the world, that you should stand up and try and do something about it. >> shortly after their wedding in may 2002, pat and his brother kevin enlisted together as army rangers. from the beginning of basic training to his deployment in iraq in 2003 and afghanistan in 2004, marie said pat struggled with the decision he had made.
>> i think saying you don't know completely what you're getting into, and the world changed a lot from the time he signed up until the time, you know, he was killed. >> reporter: marie was atwhen s killed. he had been in afghanistan for less than three weeks. there was a very public memorial. a time which marie felt her privacy was disregarded. >> there was a part of me that was sort of resentful of this -- what i felt was sort of caricature of who he was that was created. >> then the discovery of the actual events of pat's death. he had been killed by friendly fire a month after pat died, you found out the circumstances around his death were different than what you actually heard. >> to hear the way i thought he had been killed was totally different from the way he had actually been killed really sort of set me back and made me question everything, you know, even question if he was actually
gone. >> reporter: a department of defense inspector general report ultimately found, although there were critical errors by the military in its reporting of pat's death, there was no deliberate cover-up. you were part of a story where they used words like cover-up, deceit. how do you reconcile that today? >> you know, i think that for me, in order to move forward, i realized i had a choice. i could, you know, remain angry and full of hate and sort of bitter, or i could find a way to put all of those things in a place that i could deal with them and move forward in a positive way. >> and move forward she had. >> hey, it's marie. how are you doing? >> today marie now runs the pat tillman foundation which provides educational scholarships for veterans and their spouses. last year marie got remarried to joe.

women juggling a career and the question over working women juggling career and family is not a new one but now it is getting lots of attention because of a recent article in the atlantic that claims maybe we can't have it all. is it possible for working women to have both a powerful, established career and a fulfilling family life? you wouldn't think so by looking at the latest cover of the atlantic. the article, why women still can't have it all, has sparked serious conversations in both board rooms and on playgrounds across america. >> i am optimistic that women can have it all at different times. it is hard to have it all, all at once. >> the author is a former state department official who felt that balancing a high level government position with the needs of two teenage sons was simply not possible. in fact, the desire to spend more time offici spishl who felt balancing a high-level government position with the needs of two teenage
sons was simply not possible. in fact, the desire to spend more time with her family led slaughter to leave her d.c. power position and move back to new jersey to a role at princeton university. >> working 50 or 60 hour weeks whether a man or woman, your family life is going to be suffering or nonexistent. >> in the article slaughter says i believe we can have it all at the same time. but not today, not with the way the economy and society are currently structured. >> her piece does send an important message and keeps alive an important conversation. >> one woman's choice turned into a worldwide conversation that some might call intriguing, disturbing and even liberating. >> what's really important is for mom to do what mom loves, dad does what dad loves and we get to see our kids. >> anne-marie slaughter is the woman who wrote the article for "the atlantic" that has generated so much debate and discussion. she's a former policy adviser to secretary of state hillary clinton and former dean of wo woodrow wilson's school of public affairs. good morning. why do you think this article set off so much debate, so much controversy? you say this is not a negative article. >> no, not a negative at all.
it's saying we can have it all, but here are the things that need to change. i think it really hit a deep emotional cord. there are so many women out there who are struggling and blaming themselves because they think, i should be able to do this but they just can't because it's so hard. half the comments i get start with, "i cried when i read your article." >> it's interesting because you say it did spark that discussion of what needs to change. why do you say, though, women can't have it all now in today's society? >> well, women have come -- >> leaps and bounds. >> leaps and bounds. i grew up in virginia in the south where i didn't know a woman doctor. i knew one woman lawyer. first we've come a long, long way but we need another round of change. because these young women have all these career opportunities but they also know they ought to try to have kids before 35 if they don't want to risk infertility and they're looking at how do i have kids, make it to a place in my career like
partner or, you know, sort of to a certain point where they can then go up the career ladder and they just can't figure out how to do it. and they feel unbelievably torn. and when they step back and take a little more time, they feel blamed or they blame themselves. >> admittedly you did have it all and you even do now once again. >> i do. >> but when you work for secretary of state hillary clinton at the state department, that's when you realized you really couldn't have it all at that time. >> that's right. >> what was it that changed for you there? >> in some ways i should have realized this ages ago. but i have always been able to control my own time. that's what academics can do. it's no accident half the ivy league presidents are women. that's the one career where women really can do it. once i got into a job which is the job that 95% of people have where i had a boss and had to work on her schedule. even though i love her and admire her enormously, i had teenage sons, and they really needed me. i was commuting from princeton to washington during the week and coming back on the weekends.
and it just didn't work. i just could not be the mom i needed to be for my kids and do that kind of job. i did it for two years. then i stepped down. >> you ended up going back into academia as we mentioned. you said when you did leave that you knew that you were leaving and it was going to be hard to do it. because leaving to spend time with your family is a euphemism for being fired. that's what you wrote about. is that perception still there? is that for all of us? it doesn't matter how high-powered the job. when it really comes down to it, if we choose our families over the job does it mean that we are, therefore, giving up the prospects of what our career could be? >> i think that phrase, you announce in washington you are leaving to spend time with your family, it's a euphemism for being fired. says it all. it tells us how our society sets it up. it means you couldn't really leave to spend time with your family. that's not possible. it must be a euphemism for something else. >> you're fired. >> you're fired.
>> when the under-secretary for defense policy stepped down, the pentagon had to come out and say, no, no, no. she really is going to spend time with her family. that encapsulates to me what needs to change. >> how do we make that change? what do women need to do? what do women in all positions need to do to ask for those changes? >> the first thing, i think, is to be honest about how hard it is. second, ask for what you need. the women in power have to be able to talk about their kids. have to be able to say here are the trade-offs i need to make. women coming up, if you need to work from home one day a week. if you need to juggle your schedule in some situation, ask for it. you might not get it. >> easier said than done, though, in this climate? >> honestly, there have been almost 3 quarter of a million hits on this article. i think there's a lot of desire for change and more willingness. >> we have to leave it there and let the discussion continue online. ann-marie slaughter, thank you so much. appreciate your time this morning. >> coming up next, some women

good morning. we are coming to you as the u.s. supreme court has just handed downru c d acialioecisonn a cr constitutionality of arizona's strict immigration law. it was signed into law in 2010. a few months later a u.s. district judge blocked its most controversial element. at issue is whether states can enforce federal immigration laws. it's a very complicated ruling as we understand. we have nbc's justice correspondent pete williams at the courthouse in washington trying to sort it out for us. tell us how it came down. >> reporter: natalie, i suspect both sides will have something in here they can claim victory about. what the supreme court said is that most of the law that was challenged here is unconstitutional. but by a 5-3 vote, the court has upheld a provision in the law that says police officers in
arizona must check the immigration status of anyone they arrest before that person can be released. 5-3, justice kennedy riding the majority opinion, justices thomas, alito and scalia decenting. elena keegan sat out. three other provisions of the law that were before the court were struck down. two of them made it a state crime to do something in arizona that was not a crime under federal immigration law. to look for work and to be in the state without papers. the court also struck down a very controversial part of the law that said police officers in arizona can arrest someone without a warrant if they think someone has done something that violates federal immigration law. so three of the four provisions declared unconstitutional. one part held up. remember, natalie, this is not the end of the court fight over the arizona law. because there are civil lawsuits
pending. this was one filed by the justice department. there are other lawsuits pending in arizona that challenge the law as racial profiling. those are now working their way through the courts. this ain't over yet, natalie. >> absolutely not. let me bring in our "today's" legal correspondent, is a vsava guthrie. the most disputed provision in the arizona law is the stop and check part of that law. that's the part the justices upheld. how surprising is that? >> it's somewhat of a surprise. i think based on oral argument there was an expectation this law would be ul held. there was speculation on the liberal side and conservative side of the government's position, trying to strike down the law. they have struck down the majority of it but upheld the provision that got most of the attention. the ability of police officers in arizona to determine the immigration status of anybody they had lawfully stopped. now as pete just mentioned, there is a lot of litigation to come. one of the reasons why this is so controversial was because people thought this is going to
lead to racial profiling. there hasn't been a racial profiling case yet before the court. this law hasn't gone into effect yet. once it goes into effect you can bet there will be lawsuits to come. some of those issues, those equal protection issues will be litigated for sure. >> savannah guthrie, thank you. our thank you to pete williams as well. of course, we're going to have much more all day on nbc and toot on "nbc nightly news" with brian williams. most of you will return to nbc "today." >> it's psychological. >> exactly. we'll have nerves, of course, going in. we feel prepared. we feel confident. we've seen it before. we have a lot of experience on the team. >> christie, you mentioned you have your daughter, i think, riley playing here. also a 2-year-old playing as well. how young? you're a mom who seems to balance it all. we just talked about work life balance. how do you manage to help be the captain of the women's soccer team. at the same time you have two little ones at home who are busy playing soccer, too.
>> i think it puts everything in perspective. i'm fortunate to be able to play at my age, be a mom and just enjoy both sides of it. i put all my focus when i'm on the field, enjoy that. i come home to kids, practices, games. >> a lot of your teammates are moms, too. >> i have great role models in front of me. >> very inspiring to have. inspiring all of us. ladies, we can't wait to catch up with you in london. good luck. christie rampone, carli lloyd and heather mitts. still to come, a lesson in cooking.
look who we got here. put a little pepper on that. i'm a typical mom. i go to amusement parks. and my kid's games. and just like any typical mom i'm thrilled when my champion loves to eat something nutritious, like chobani champions yogurt. it's a good source of protein, and most important, he loves it. so even though i'm an olympian, around here, i'm just another mom trying to help her champion win the day. chobani champions. win the day.

found? >> in all of this time the national cancer institute, let me put it this way, only 2% of their annual budget goes toward pancreatic research. no cancer can make meaningful progress without federal help. tomorrow we have almost 700 people who are -- we're going to be storming on capitol hill and we're going to convince them to pass a tanning racket cancer education and research act. this is something that's so important to us. it's going to get our foot in the door because there's so many people out here that don't have the help that they deserved. i know my husband really deserved that and he fought so hard for it. so i'm carrying that flag for him. >> tell us about the national call-in day that is happening in washington, d.c. and around the country? >> you know what, this bill that we have has so much support but it doesn't mean it's still going to get passed. so tomorrow, tuesday, the 26th, we have our national call-in

the time constraints led me to eat more unhealthy foods the busier i got. the most painful part of being overweight was the emotional stress. the lack of self-confidence was in my head and i would pick up my clothes to make sure they weren't clinging to my fat. one night after a night on the town my friend was running away from me joking around. when i would catch up he was running again. that's when i realized how out of shape i was. i started my corporate gym and started a walking program. i reduced my fast food. i was lucky to meet my girlfriend at my heaviest weight. after losing my first 20 pounds, she convinced me to join weight watchers with her. i started riding the bike at the gym and progressed to running. in eight months i lost over 100 pounds. i'm now engaged to my number one supporter jenna. we eat healthy foods together. >> that is great. >> here is joy to talk about his eating habits. that is what the problem was. >> there were so many smart
strategies to his success. one thing when he first started, he strapped on a pedometer and made the commitment to take 10,000 steps every day. that adds up to about five miles. it sounds unbelievable, but it's easy to accomplish as part of your daily activity. he was a grad student gobbling down great big fat burgers with the fries. this is over 1,000 calories, more than 70 grams of fat. with his slimming fiancee who lost over 65 pounds herself. now he makes these incredibly delicious, this is a chicken burger with a kick with tons of frank's hot sauce. this is an italian ranch turkey burger. i'll put these recipes out on facebook and twitter. >> let's look at clint. come out and join the joy fit club. >> oh, my god! wait a minute.
