wanted or sought. >> reporter: paul ryan going publicly tuesday shortly after meeting privately with house republicans tentatively agreeing to serve. >> my greatest worry is the consequence of not stepping up. of someday having my kids ask me, when the stakes were so high, why didn't you do all you could do? >> reporter: among ryan's demands the married father of three making a point not related to the house but to his home. >> last point is personal. i cannot and i will not give up my family time. >> reporter: the 45-year-old wisconsin congressman has long been seen as a rising republican star. after hearing him speak tuesday some conservatives remain unconvinced. >> i didn't know what the event was tonight. if i knew it was a paul ryan rally for speaker of the house i wouldn't be here. >> reporter: a taste of the grade lock and infighting that frustrated outgoing speaker john boehner. >> why should ryan consider taking the job after the
treatment you received as house speaker in the job. >> somebody has to have the job. >> reporter: paul ryan setting the deadline as friday for the party to decide if that somebody is him. >> now more than ever we must work together. >> reporter: paul ryan took ten days during the recess to think about it. he is now giving the members of the party the next couple of days to think about it themselves. jason chaffetz a potential opponent says he'll support ryan. another congressman says he is running against him. several deadlines are looming. matt and savannah. >> peter, thanks very much. vice president biden still keeping everyone guessing about his presidential ambitions. boy, is he starting to sound like an actual candidate. nbc's white house correspondent kristen welker on the biden watch again this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. from taking jobs at hillary clinton to talking about the importance of bipartisanship,
vice president joe biden seemed to be laying out a defense of his record and also a rationale for a possible candidacy. his supporters say they are ready to get to work. the one thing missing, the candidate. in a night honoring former president jimmy carter and his vice president walter mondale, vice president joe biden touted his own close relationship with the current commander in chief. >> i spend five to seven hours a day with him every day for the past seven years. >> reporter: biden seeming to take on democratic frontrunner hillary clinton, flexing his muscles on foreign policy. >> john kerry is a great secretary of state. hillary clinton was a great secretary of state. but there are times when only the vice president if it's known of his relationship with the president, can speak for the united states. >> reporter: for the third time in two days, taking a veiled swipe at clinton, who called republicans her enemies last week.
>> it's mostly important that everybody in this room understand the other team is not the enemy. >> reporter: earlier in the day biden raised eyebrows when recounting his advice to president obama about whether to authorize the osama bin laden raid. >> i told him my opinion, that i thought he should go but follow his own instincts. >> reporter: the account differs from biden's description to nbc news during an interview taped for a 2012 special "the situation room." >> i think there is time to do it before you move. >> reporter: despite all the signs, biden remains undecided. the president of the powerful international association of firefighters is in close contact with the vice president. >> we are preparing, as if the vice president is going to announce his candidacy, and we would not be preparing for that if we weren't fully ready and prepared to not only endorse but to work on behalf of that candidacy. >> reporter: clinton had tried
but failed to secure the endorsement of that same union. a key constituency for democrats. sources say the vice president is taking another hard look at the big picture as he gets closer to making the decision. savannah and matt, back to you. >> thank you so much. turning to nbc political analyst nicole wallace, she served as the white house communications director for george w. bush. good morning. >> let's go back to paul ryan. the top story. this was so interesting. he is saying i'll run for speaker under these five or so conditions. is that good politics? will it work? >> reporter: we've been holding out for a hero on our side. we have one. he has taken all the right lessons from the raucous republican primary playing out in the country and understands that conservatives, especially the 40 or so hard-liners in the freedom caucus. may respond to strength. but they have not responded to
efforts to pacify them from speaker boehner and kevin mccarthy. everyone knows paul ryan is of superior intellect. >> he is using the ticking clock. he says congress has a lot on its plates. we need a decision. let me know by friday. looking at the things coming up. the debt ceiling and spending. what does his resume tell you? will he end up facing the same kind of showdown that john boehner faced? >> i think that was on his mind when he spoke to the country last night. he said, we will not be the party of opposition. we will be the party of proposition. i think, if he plans to go along with -- this is a majority of republicans in the congress, it's not a majority of republicans in the country that wants to shut down the government on the issues you mentioned. what he did by putting the ball back in their court saying, hey, get back to me. i'll do it, but only if you're all behind me was absolutely brilliant. let's talk about vice president joe biden.
if you forced me to take a guess, up until yesterday i would have said he probably won't run. i have to say, after he talked about the bin laden raid and is recasting his role and saying, well, you know, i did tell the president you should go for it. that sounds like a presidential candidate trying to burnish the image. >> and shoring up what he views as the political vulnerability. i am a joe biden fan. he still has a lane to run in. hillary clinton is formidable. we talked last week about how she did everything she had to do in the debate. she is still more head candidate than a heart candidate. i am not sure if joe biden being the heart candidate is enough to topple her. it would certainly be a race. we want to remind everybody. hosting a town hall meeting with donald trump and new hampshire voters. monday on "today." if you have questions for mr. trump use #trumptoday. turning now to a surprise visit overnight making headlines around the world.
syrian leader bashar al assad meeting with russian president vladimir putin in moscow. nbc's keir simmons has more on that. good morning. >> reporter: this was president assad's first time outside syria since the civil war began. the aim might have been to send a warning to washington and president obama. it was a short trip signalling that the long alliance between putin and assad is stronger than ever. president assad seated next to president putin, the syrian leader's dramatic moscow visit, announced for the first time this morning. assad arrived in secret last night. syria is russia's friend, putin said in a statement, wishing assad a warm welcome. contrast that with the tension between president obama and russia's leader last month. the syrian people have been practically alone in putting up resistance and fighting these international terrorists, putin told his guest. russia's air campaign over syria
has increased in recent days, moscow says, targeting what it calls terrorist extremist groups. on the ground that has meant striking both isis and rebels supported by the west. anyone opposed to assad. the talks overnight centered on coordinating military action in syria, the kremlin said, while the u.s. has agreed measures with russia to minimize the risk of accidents in the air. the pentagon making clear cooperation does not mean u.s. support for russia's policy. >> we continue to believe that russia's strategy in syria is counter productive and their support for the assad regime will only make syria's civil war worse. >> reporter: the reply from moscow unmistakable. washington and moscow are still fundamentally divided over whether assad should go. the fact that assad was prepared to travel suggests, matt, that he feels more secure. >> absolutely. keir simmons. thank you.
southern new mexico now, police are trying desperately to track down a suspect in a chilling road rage shooting. the victim was a 4-year-old girl. anybody's jacob rascon on the story this morning. >> reporter: yet another incident of aggressive driving turned deadly. this time the joining me nvicti little girl. conflicting witness accounts are making the search for a suspect that much more difficult. a search for suspects is under way this morning after police found this red truck pulled over on the highway. three people inside, including a 4-year-old girl who was shot in the head. >> single gunshot wound to the back of the head. conscious female. in and out. >> reporter: authorities blame road rage. johnell to phaeosaw it happen. >> the truck was going across several lanes to avoid this vehicle to pass. >> from what we understand the cars were both moving, one car pulled up against the other and
started to fire rounds into the vehicle. according to the ntsb, over a 7-year period road rage led to 218 murders and 12,000 injuries. in new mexico the local sheriff said this latest incident is disturbing. >> this is one of those crimes which is unexplainable. it's 100% preventible. it did not have to happen. and we need to rise up as a community and say, enough is enough. >> reporter: conflicting witness reports make it difficult to describe the vehicle that got away. >> we are begging for the community's help. >> reporter: the search still on. an innocent life taken as aggressive driving once again turns deadly. >> that witness says the other vehicle involved was a red sedan but police are not confident in that description. right now simply begging anyone who knows anything about this, please come forward. guys. >> hoping to get that word out.

overnight a 33-year-old new york city police officer was killed during a confrontation with an armed suspect fleeing police. officials say randolph holder was pronounced dead at harlem hospital shortly after arriving in critical condition. >> tonight he did what every other officer in the nypd does when the call comes. he ran toward danger. >> i heard about 10 or 12 shots. >> the shooting in the east harlem neighborhood occurred as holder and his partners responded to calls of shots fired. they confronted an armed man and in an exchange of gunfire holder was shot in his head. the suspect was later caught several blocks away with a gunshot wound to his leg. holder is the fourth new york city police officer killed in the past 11 months. in may brian moore was killed when a gunman opened fire on moore and his partner. and last december a gunman approached officers rafael ramos and lu as they sat in their

syrian president bashar assad is back in damascus after a surprise trip to moscow overnight. the kremlin says russian president vladimir putin summoned assad to discuss how current military operations in syria can lead to peace and political stability. russia deepened its involvement in syria's civil war by launching air strikes last month. canada's new prime minister designate told president obama on tuesday that canada will withdraw from the u.s.-led bombing campaign against isis. justin trudeau said canada will continue to help train afghan forces. trudeau said that withdrawing canadian fighter jets fulfills a campaign promise. and a sailor and his cat are safe after a dramatic rescue off the coast of alaska. the man's sailboat lost its rudder and its rigging while being tossed around on 20-foot waves. a coast guard plane located him and then radioed for help from a nearby oil drilling ship. the sailor rode wave after wave before he was finally able to leap on to the larger ship, and

should be screened and when they should begin, and i think that the american cancer society has tried to set up guidelines where we're moving away from a one-size-fits-all type of screening to a more personalized or individualized type of screening. >> which sounds good. >> which sounds good. however, the issues really are -- they are -- their gien lines are directed towards the average risk woman. that is a woman who has no family history, no genetic predisposition. but in those patients, that's where we find most of our breast cancers. only 15% of the cancers that we find actually have a family history. the remainder are all sporadic events, and now we're -- they are asking us to take these patients and start screening later. that means we'll find breast cancers much larger. >> so what is the downside of screening earlier as for years and years was the recommendation, at 40 every year you do your mammogram. >> right. so what they say are the downsides and what they are
trying to move away from are what we call false positives and overdiagnosis. in terms of false positives, these are finding things on mammography where we need to call a patient back for either an additional view or an ultrasound and that really only happens in 10% of cases. with our new digital imaging, we are much better at decreasing the number of false positives, but, still, yes, 1% to 2% will wind up with a biopsy, but can i tell you in my practice and generally speaking to physicians that take care of patients, we are able to with those additional views limit patient having biopsies and when they do have a biopsy and it's benign, they breathe a sigh of relief, and no one would want to miss finding breast cancer early. >> i'm out of time but i have to ask because there's always an admonition, talk to your doctor, get a mammogram if you want. but will insurance pay for it if it's not a recommendation? >> right now these are guidelines and nothing is written in stone. talk to your doctor.
we don't know what insurance companies will do. there's a lot of uncertainty and most of us are very angry. >> appreciate it. thanks very much. matt, over to you. thanks very much. coming up, the former oscar host who could be returning to that role next year. and we're going back in time with an exclusive "back to the future" cast reunion right here in studio 1a. but these messages.

>> we should mention hoda and regis. >> regis was in rare form. and you have a little wardrobe malfunction right there. >> yeah, he did, on the red carpet. >> so we gathered around. >> we wanted to witness it. what happened, fantastic. >> we're protecting him from the paparazzi. >> yes, we did. congratulations. >> congrats. >> thanks for being there, guys. everybody, just one more night you have to be -- >> honored to be there. thank you, everybody. >> kathie lee posse. >> felt the love. coming up next, is frozen yogurt really better for you than ice cream? is joy bauer going to ruin this for us? >> never, never. >> killjoy bauer. that's coming up next, but first this is "today" on nbc. >> she won't stop.
>> we are back at 8:38. time for our special series what the heck are you eating where we give you healthier options to some of our favorite foods. this morning frozen yogurt is on joy lawyer's menu. >> there's nothing like a creamy dreamy frozen dessert, and in response to our love affair with ice cream and determination to stay slim and fit frozen yogurt shops can be found on practically every street corner and in every shopping mall but is frozen yogurt really better than ice cream? check this out a medium fro-yo with two tablespoons of each chocolate sprinkles and granola clocks in at 400 calories, that's the equivalent of eating eight chocolate chip cookies or an indulgent slice of apple pie and for comparison sake the same size of full fat ice cream with
same topping weighs in at 710 calories. feel a brain freeze coming on? i'm not surprised. here's what you need to know. first, the difference between ice cream and frozen yogurt. regular ice cream is are a mix of full fat dairy products, classically cream and whole milk mingled with sugered a and flavoring. to be considered ice cream, it must contain at least 10% milk fat, but many popular brands have significantly more fat which drives up the calories. on the other hand, light or reduced-fat ice cream and frozen yogurt are made with the very same ingredients as regular ice cream but this time manufacturers use low-fat or fat-free dairy products in the mix, and typically the swap from full fat to low-fat dairy drives the calories way down. so these lighter options tend to be much more figure friendly. frozen yogurt differs from ice cream because it has yogurt cultures added. these cultures can help increase
the good bacteria in your stomach and reduce the risk for certain digestive issues. all things considered, frozen yogurt and light ice cream end up being pretty darn similar, so i say go for whichever you prefer best. and if you're eating it regularly, stick with a small and enjoy one tablespoon of any delicious topping to avoid packing on the pounds. that original calorie portion which weighed in at 400 is now just 180. light, lean and satisfying. now that you know what the heck you're eating enjoy every dreamy creamy bite. mmm. >> joy, i can't believe you let us have topping, i'm in shock. >> first of all, i'm crazy for all thingsize cream, frozen yogurt, regular ice cream so i was on a mission to make this work. >> what do we have here. >> a few tricks for controlling portion size because that tend to trip people up. when you're at home scooping in hard packs, invest in some
pretty smaller ramekins or bowl because one scoop, which is about half a cup serving that's what the nutrition stats are for and will look much more visually appealing. if this was in a larger bowl it would look measly and then you add a second or third and then the calories and sugar skyrocket. >> what's this? >> we're at a frozen yogurt shop. i made two look-alike frozen yogurt. the same, vanilla, this is 200 and this one is only 100 calories, how come, cafna, what did i do, oh, i know what you did. >> you put fruit in the bottom of one of those. >> i know you, joy bauer and the little tricks. >> fill the bottom portion of the cup with fruit and then you'll substantially decreates calories but you'll still have the nice hardy portion. >> a good idea. we know that cups are calorie free so what about cones, this cone is a waiver cone, just 20 calories and standard sugar cone
no big deal and when you get up to a waffle cone, this is a little bit more, 160, and if it's chocolate covered it's in danger territory and 320. look how big it is. >> it's huge. >> we love topping. >> when it comes to fresh fruit go for it. they are super low callry. other than fresh fruit the best most healthiest topping will be granola, nuts and dark chocolate tips. all of the toppings, even the not so healthy topping like marshmallow and oreos and sprinkles, whatever you put in on average will clock in at about 50 calories per table spoofnlt keep in mind when you request a topping, the person that is preparing it for you will generally put on two tablespoons per request so just say one table spoofn whatever you want and you're good to go. not so bad. i'm not so bad. >> you aren't that bad. >> what an endorsement. joy, thank you so much. >> i mean, i'm great. >> we love her.
we're back now with oscar-nominated actress kate hudson who stars in the movie redads bar who plays a prostitute when he finds himself in afghanistan. take a look. >> i like your dress. >> i bet. >> sparkling, huh? >> i'm mercy with an "m." >> the can you sing? >> sweet, i can do things that to you are illegal in every civilized. >> don't get all bashful now. you're the one who shot the
movie. kate, good to see you, merci with an "i." >> how does she end up in afghanistan with a hooker? >> where the money was at, i guess, so she just wanted to boat out and move on. called it retiring. >> called it her 401(k) trip. >> and then she's going to be a real estate agent. >> because you play a prostitute some of the dangerous questions with dangerous like how did you prepare to the role and did it come easily to you and things like that? >> we should stay away from that. >> did you like playing her? >> yeah, i enjoyed it, because it was -- it was fun. you know. i -- i think, you know, it allowed me to work with one of my heros, you know, which is bill murray in a way i probably never would have been normally been able to work with him, you know, where we goat sort of have an intimate relationship in a very bizarre circumstance. >> everybody thinks of him as this off-the-charts wacky guy. >> yeah. >> but he also has a very serious side to him, especially
when he's in the middle of shooting something. >> he's a very thoughtful actor. sometimes he's incredibly goofy and out there, and you're just like whoa, where's bill going and sometimes he's, you know, very focused and -- and -- and, you know, i enjoyed watching him. he never makes a bad move as an actor which as an actor watching one of my heros. his choices are just impeccable and we see that and it's that thing where you either have that or you don't, and he's just one of those, you know, actors. >> i think -- i feel like we've known each other for a long time. >> for a long time. >> and yet i read a little bit but and learned things about you each time i do that. we have something in common. each have a love of halloween. >> i love halloween. >> your brother oliver says you guys throw epic halloween parties. >> we throw great parties. >> and you pay for them. >> i saw that. that's true. he convinces me -- i'm one like every year or so, i don't know

"rock the kasbah." hits theaters on friday. pleasure. happy halloween almost. >> thank you. >> coming up, another big star, joan lunden shares their conversation, burks first, on a wednesday morning this is "today" on nbc.
we're back. it's 8:52 on pink power. at star whose mother died of ovarian cancer and he has a special project and our special correspondent joan lunden has more on this. good morning, joan. >> good morning, savannah. i spent time with patrick dempsey for the demsey challenge where the dempsey family come together for their community and in memory of his mother amanda. >> do not run over patrick and joan. >> the dempsey challenge is a run, walk and cycle fund-raising event to raise money for the patrick dempsey center for cancer hope & healing. >> that's all profit that goes
to the center so that all the services are free so it's remarkable. >> since 2008 the dempsey center provides support, education and wellness services from massage to financial advice to anyone impacted by cancer for free. it was dempsey's mom who inspired his family to start the center. >> it was i think 1997 that your mom, amanda, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. >> the my sister called and said that mom had been diagnosed with cancer. she had ovarian cancer and the tumor was the size of a grapefruit and that she needed to go into surgery immediately. >> dempsey's mother battled her cancer for many years, but she also volunteered at the center. plus, she was kind of like mother hen to everybody who came in here. >> my mother would certainly control it, yes. that was part of her thing, but, yeah, i thought -- i think it meant more to her than she could verbalize, and she wanted to give back, and she was incredibly vulnerable that
always had a strong facade, you know, and for her to come back as a volunteer meant a lot to her and it meant a lot to the people in the community that she was here, too. >> all right. >> here we are. >> here we go, everyone. >> she led the survivor walk every year. she was really a symbol of hope in this community, wasn't she? >> she was a tremendous symbol of hope in this community. >> the center is locate in the dempsey's hometown of the lewiston, maine. >> did you act at all in school? >> i did a little bit of community theater and i was in a vaudeville troupe and did some juggling. >> little known fact about patrick dempsey. you left here, did i hear something about a unicycle at one point or something? >> yes, because i wanted to ski. >> and juggling, you juggled. >> i did. >> do you still juggle. >> yes. >> dempsey went on to act, including his mcdreamy role in "grey's anatomy" and compete in professional auto racing, but he always makes time to come back home.
>> what's it like to come back here and for all these theme see the hometown boy? >> there's a huge embrace from the community, and you just connect to everybody, someone who is in the midst of fighting cancer and then it becomes, wow, this is really special. >> in 2014, dempsey's mother lost her battle with cancer. >> well, your mom would be very, very proud. >> she would say sit up straight and could you shave. >> it's a family affair for dempsey who brings his kids to join in the fund-raising event. >> it's great to celebrate life with the survivors and the journey that they have been through. >> this year there were almost 4,000 participants in the dempsey challenge, raising over $1.1 million. >> if your mom was here now, what would you say to her? >> you know, i think it wouldn't be in words. i think it's just in behavior with my mother. that would be not so much said to her but in the behavior and in the actions of what we're doing as a family and in her
honor i think. >> patrick likes to emphasize it's the community and the volunteers who make the real difference with this center and for you bridget jones fans, patrick is in the middle of filming the next chapter. all he would divulge is that he plays an american, not surprisingly a love interest and he may do a little juggling in the movie. >> that's a cliffhanger, joani' ==topvo== ....of the safe rescue of a good wednesday morning. it's 8:56. new details of the safe rescue of a missing 5-year-old boy. the last 30 minutes, the sheriff's office tweeted out they located the boy, healthy and protected by his dog. he went missing tuesday on the north coast in a small town. he was found near his house. we're told the dog is doing just fine.

>> sort of hoverish board. >> but you've got to use a magnetic base. >> that's a problem. >> and then you have the ones that aren't really hover boards that everybody is rolling through airports. >> mono rovers. >> it's getting there. >> it will happen probably in the next five years. >> the movie used video chatting. of course we've had that for year, skype and facetime. good call there and the film featured dog-walking drones. >> there's an idea. >> we've got drones. >> but we need a drone that walks a dog. >> but it's -- it malfunctions. it's not going to end well. >> and how is it going to scoop the poop. >> the cast, look how long it took the film to get green lighted because people didn't see the big picture. drones that walked dogs. >> do they pick up the dog at your house, so many questions. >> does it pick up the poop, that's the bigger question. >> that's what i said. >> in the movie the characters
wore 3-d glasses. >> yeah. >> we've got those all over the place, google glasses. one prediction, i'm sorry to say for you in chicago may not come. in "back to the future"-2-there's a billboard that reads cubs win world series. that was in 2015. they made it all the way to the nlcs, but last night at wrigley in chicago the mets beat the cubs 5-2. they are up 3-0 in that series. mets now just one win away from moving on to the world series and eliminating the cubs. >> it could happen. >> it has happened. >> it could happen. >> remember the red sox, right? >> sure. >> it could happen. >> 2004 i think. >> if they don't win it this year, does it ever matter anymore. we immediate it to be in the "back to the future" year. this is the only thing that could have erased the curse. >> not to get too deep in the espn weeds, but this cubs team is not a fluke. they are really young, they have got pitchers. they will be good for a while. >> but there's only one "back to the future" year and that would have just been perfect. >> we still don't have the flying cars. >> no flying cars.
>> we don't have mr. fusion on the back of our cars. >> we have the self-driving car. >> that's true. >> we don't have the self-lacing shoes, remember that? i guess velcro. >> velcro counts. when you're 5 years old velcro counts. >> my kids can't wait for the self-lacing shoes because how many times do they come undone. >> did you see matt's first part of the interview with christopher lloyd and michael j. fox. he's got more and like i told you my kids loved -- we went to "back to the future" at radio city with the 85-piece orchestra and david newman conducting, loved it and the whole series, film concert series and do it with a bunch of different movies and a different way to watch the movie. >> heard you playing that this morning, the orchestra version. >> phenomenal. >> matt will be here to talk about his interview and give us more with them. >> full costumes though that you want to talk about. >> impressive. this time of year you've got to start thinking about -- we already know what we're doing for halloween. it's game time. >> can't tell anyone. >> but we found some that are online that are pretty darn
impressive. first, it's a cinderella that transforms from ration to a gown. >> okay. >> created from comic-con in february, and wow, won the judge's prizes. watch this. >> she's just twirling. >> boom and cinderella, just like that, no mice involved. >> to keep doing that all night on halloween because once you reveal you run into a new group of people. >> can it turn back, that's the question? like if you swin in the opposite direction. >> that is nice. i like that. >> and, of course, cinderella having the pumpkin spice because the pumpkin turns into a carriage. >> you and the pumpkin spice. >> this next up, you can't see the kid inside the costume. it's 12-year-old tyler dressed as a sky ball machine. look at that. there's his feet. >> where do his eyes go. >> the problem, is unfortunately people knocked him out because they were rolling balls into him

here and you get to run up like natalie did it last year and without us knowing just smack it, and we go under. >> yeah. >> maybe not come back up. >> i'll do it twice. >> and you know what. if you donate, we'll have piranha in there just to make it interesting. >> no, we will not, al. >> literal shark tank. let's see how good we are. how fast can we get out of tank. >> on your own that one, my friend. >> going to roll the reese's to watch the children and put us in a tank with a pran whavrnlgts did you do yesterday on your day off? >> there are some things that won't meant to be done. >> you want to put piranha in there. just us. cincinnati, new york, st. louis in the lead right now, so come on. vote early. vote often. we're talking cities now, i didn't realize that. >> who is in the lead? >> cincinnati, new york, st. louis. >> yeah. >> oh, that's an interesting combo. >> there you go. by the way, my son told me this morning that chris cimino has a
haircut so as he continues to track his favorite television meteorologist >> at least he still gets a haircut. >> what was that? road kill. >> roker road kill. >> they only hurt the ones they love. anyway, you can see we've got heavy rain in the southwest, and we've got a risk of strong storms again this afternoon. isolated tornadoes from new mexico into west texas and the ironic thing is they have drought. 47% of texas in moderate drought. guess what. that will be changing. we've got this upper level low and trough of low pressure and a lot of moisture coming in so severe storm risk for new mexico and tecumseh. flood risks, snow in colorado above 10,000 feet. next 24 hours we could be looking at 4 to 5 inches of rain, and then as we move into the end of the week, thursday look for upwards of 4 to 5 more
inches, and as we get into the weekend we could see another 4 to 5 inches from corpus christi into oklahoma so flooding is going to -- flash flooding could be a real risk throughout central -- south central plains this weekend. good morning. i'm meteorologist kari hall. we're in the low 60s for most of the bay area. upper 50s in the north bay. expect to top out at 87 degrees in the north bay while san francisco sees a high of 75. 80 in the east bay while the tri-valley warms up to 87 degrees. and some upper 70s for the peninsula, lower 80s for the south bay. not much of a wind today. blowing actually offshore with some dry winds. but it does cool down in time for the weekend. >> and that's your latest weather. >> al, thank you very much. coming up, we're firing up the flux capacitor for a trip back to 1985. matt joins us with his sit-down exclusive reunion with the cast of "back to the future." it's right after this.

[ male announcer ] tim and richard smucker learned early on just how irresistible their jam really is. i shoulda brought more. [ male announcer ] with a name like smucker's, it has to be good. well, 30 years ago an eccentric scientist and a skateboarding teen went on a journey back to the future in a delorean just like this. >> natalie, that's right. i had the chance to sit down with the cast, michael j. fox, christopher lloyd and leaa thompson in an exclusive look back at the 1985 pop culture phenomenon. >> wait a minute.
wait a minute, doc. are you telling me that you built a time machine out of a delorean? >> the way i see it, if you're going to build a time machine into a car why not do it with some style. >> when you guys first read the script with time traveling deloreans and flux capacitor, what did you think? >> i -- >> it was a great script. i mean, i -- i always had a strange sense of humor so the idea that i got to play a character that was madly in love -- madly in heat for her own son -- >> i'm glad you switched that. >> i just thought it was like a crazy story, and it was a perfect script. i mean, the chance to play these kind of crazy characters was amazing. >> michael, what did you do to get in the mood so to speak before you shot the car scenes with mom, where you're supposed to be doing make-out sessions with mom? >> it was that thing working with lea and we did the scene in
the bedroom where -- where i wake up and i -- and i don't have my pants on. >> the purple underwear. >> the purple underwear scene . >> announcer: this is vice president joe biden making a surprise announcement in the white house rose garden. >> through the grieving process i said all along what i said time and again to others, that it may very well be that that process by the time we get through it closes the window on mounting a realistic campaign for president. that it might close. i concluded it has closed. i know from previous experience
that there's no timetable for this process. the process doesn't respect or much care about things like filing deadlines or debates in primaries and caucuses. but i also know that i could do this -- i couldn't do this if the family wasn't ready. the good news is the family has reached that point. as i've said many times my family has suffered loss and i hope there would come a time and i've said this to many other families that sooner rather than later when you think of your loved one it brings a smile to your lips before it brings a tear to your eyes. well that's where the bidens are today. thank god. beau is our inspiration. unfortunately, i believe we're out of time. the time necessary to mount a
winning campaign for the nomination. but while i will not be a candidate, i will not be silent. i intend to speak out clearly and forcefully to influence as much as i can where we stand as a party, and where we need to go as a nation. and this is what i believe. i believe that president obama has led this nation from crisis to recovery, and we're now on the cusp of resurgence. i'm proud to have played a part in that. this party, our nation, will be making a tragic mistake if we walk away or attempt to undo the obama legacy. the american people have worked too hard and we've come too far for that. democrats should not only defend this record and protect this record, they should run on the
record. we got a lot of work to get done over the next 15 months and there's a lot that the president will have to get done. but, let me be clear that we'll be building on a really solid foundation. but it all starts with giving the middle class a fighting chance. i know in the press you love to call me middle class joe. and i know in washington that's not usually meant as a compliment, it means you're not that sophisticated but it is about the middle class. it's not just a matter of fairness or economic growth. it's a matter of social stability for this nation. we cannot sustain the current levels of inequality that exist in this country. i believe the huge sums of unlimited and often secret money pouring in to our politics is a
fundamental threat to our democracy and i really mean that. i think it's a fundamental threat, because the middle class will never have a fighting chance in this country as long as just several hundred families, the wealthiest families control the process. it's just that simple. and i believe we have to level the playing field for the american people. and that's going to take access to education and opportunity to work. we need to commit, we're fighting for 14 years. we need to commit to 16 years of free public education for all our children. we all know that 12 years of public education is not enough. as a nation, let's make the same commitment to a college education today that we need a high school education a hundred years ago. children and child care is the one biggest barrier for working families. we need, as the president
proposed, to triple the child care tax credit. that alone will lead to dramatic increase in the number of women able to be in the workforce and will raise our economic standards. there are many economic ways to pay for this. well how do you pay for this? many equitable ways to pay for this. we can pay for all of this by one simple step by limiting the deductions in the tax code to 28% of income. wealthy folks will end up paying a little bit more. but it's my guess and i mean this sincerely, it's my guess they will be happy to build a stronger economy and a better educated america. i believe we need to lead more by the power of our example, as the president has, than merely by the example of our power. we've learned some very hard lessons for more than a decade of large scale open ended military invasions. we have to accept the fact that we can't solve all the world's
problems. we can't solve many of them alone. the argument that we just have to do something when bad people do bad things isn't good enough. it's not a good enough reason for american intervention and to put our sons and daughters lives on the line. put them at risk. i believe we have to end the divisive partisan politics that's ripping this country apart and i think we can. it's mean-spirited. it's petty. it's gone on for much too long. i don't believe like some do that it's naive to talk to republicans. i don't think we should look at republicans as our enemy. they are our opposition. they are not our enemies. for the sake of the country, we have to work together. as the president said many times compromise is not a dirty word. but look at it this way, folks. how does this country function
without consensus? how can we move forward without being able to ride the consensus? four more years of this kind of pitch battle may be more than this country can take. we have to change it. we have to change it. and i believe we need a moonshot in this country to cure cancer. it's personal. but i know we can do this. the president and i have already been working hard on increasing funding for research and development because there are so many breakthroughs just on the horizon in science and medicine. the things that are just about to happen. and we can -- we can make them real with an absolute national commitment to end cancer as we know it today. and i'm going spend the next 15 months in this office pushing as hard as i can to accomplish
this. because i know there are democrats and republicans on the hill who share our passion, our passion to silence this deadly disease. if i can be anything, i would have wanted to be the president that ended cancer because it's possible. i also believe we need to keep moving forward in the arc of this nation towards justice. the rights of the lgbt community, immigration reform, equal pay for women and protecting their safety from violence, rooting out institutional racism. at their core every one of these things, every one of these things is about the same thing. it's about equality. it's about fairness. it's about respect. as my dad used to say, it's about affording every single person dignity. it's not complicated. every single one of these issues
is about dignity takely forces of hate and division, they won't let up but they do not represent the american people. they do not represent the heart of this country. they represent a small fraction of the political elite and the next president will have to take it on. most of all, i believe there's unlimited possibilities for this country. i don't know how many of the white house staff and persons have heard me say repeatedly that we're so much better potion than any country in the world. we are so -- i've been doing this for a long time. when i got elected as a 29-year-old kid i was called the optimist. i'm more optimistic about the possibilities, incredible possibilities to leap forward than i had been any time in my career. and believed in my core that there's no country on the face
of the earth better potioned to lead the world in the 21st century than the united states of america. washington, though, just has to begin to function again. instead of being the problem, it has to become part of the solution again. we have to be one america again. and at our core, i've always believed that what sets america apart from every other nation is that we, ordinary americans, believe in possibilities. unlimited possibilities. the possibilities for a kid growing up in a poor inner-city neighborhood or a spanish speaking home. or a kid from mayfield in delaware, willow grove in pence like jill and i. to be able to be anything we wanted to be. to do anything, anything that we
want. that's what we were both taught, that's what the president was taught. it was real. that's what i grew up believing. and, you know, it's always been true in this country, and if we ever lose that we've lost something very special. we'll have lost the very soul of this country. when i was growing up my parents in tough times looked at me and would say to me and my brothers and sister, honey, it's going to be okay. and they meant it. they meant it. it was going to be okay. but some of you covering me i say go back to your old neighborhoods. talk to your contemporaries that haven't been as successful as you have been. too many people in america, too many parents who don't believe they can look their kid in the
eye and say with certainty honey, it's going to be okay. that's what we need to change. it's not complicated. that will be the true measure of our success. and we'll not have met it until every parent out there can look at their kid in tough times and say, honey, it's going to be okay. and mean it. that's our responsibility. and i believe it's totally within our power, the nation has done it before in difficult times. i've had the great good fortune and privilege of being in public service most of my adult life, since i've been 25 years old. and through personal triumphs and tragedies, my entire family, my son beau, my son hunter, my daughter ashley, my wife jill, our whole family and this sounds corny but we found purpose in public life. we found purpose in public life.
so, we intend, the whole family, not just me, we intend to spend the next 15 months fighting for what we've always cared about. what my family has always cared about. with every ounce of our being. and working alongside the president and members of congress and our future nominee, i am absolutely certain we are fully capable of accomplishing extraordinary things. we can do this. and when we do, america won't just win the future, we will own the finish line. thank you for all being so gracious to jill and me for the last six or eight months and for our whole career for that matter. but i'm telling you, we can do so much more. i'm looking forward to continuing to work with this man to get it done. thank you. [ applause ] thank you all very much.
[ applause ] >> this is lester holt in new york. we've been watching vice president joe biden addressing many of the democratic talking points of his campaign. ones he'll stress over the next 15 months but not as a candidate. joe biden ending the speculation that he'll toss his hat in the ring. standing there with president obama, and his wife dr. jill biden making an announcement he'll continue to be vocal during this campaign but as we said not a candidate. this coming just a day after remarks that many thought made him sound like he was going to make a run and many will read perhaps with the president at his side. let's go to chris jansing at the white house. what do you know about the timing of this? this came with a very, very late notice this morning. >> reporter: it seemed to come together very quickly, lester. i happened to be in a briefing for a future event, and someone came in, a member of the staff,
whispered in the ear of the senior staff members, there they answer ad final question and the electricity made it clear that something was going on and we all rushed out. so i think this is something that came together fairly late. and i think you saw with the statement made by joe biden today his commitment to this president, when i talked to senior staff members throughout this process, the one thing you heard consistently and he's beloved among the senior staff for his commitment to this president, their concern was that he had set a standard of closeness of influence as a vice president and that if he ran and did not win that would have a tremendous impact on his legacy. you've seen the closeness of these two men. he stood by the president's side so many times after the iran nuclear deal, after the supreme court decision on same-sex marriage. that was a signal by the president how muchhe valued
this vice president that he spent five to seven hours a day with president obama, something that has been affirmed by, again, senior staff members. so, joe biden not running. i think that there is going to be a lot of conversation about what this means going forward for this white house because as he said he has made this commitment not only for the democratic policies that he feels strongly about but also a commitment to cancer. one final note indeed the vice president who delivered the eulogy at the funeral of beau biden, another sign of just how close these men are and how closely i think their legacies will be aligned. >> nbc's chris jansing. the question whether he was nudged to that podium on any tloefl make that announcement. we'll have full coverage coming up on "nbc nightly news" including what this means for the democratic race for the nomination now. we'll see you then. for now i'm lester holt, nbc news new york. eyes, the bigger

or political and somebody is out to get you. if you can't fix it or fight, it get out of there. if you've tried to get promoted and advanced a couple of times and it's not working, you get a message. if your next job is your boss' and your boss is not going anywhere it's okay to go somewhere else. >> got to keep the growth growing. >> kenny roger and the gambler philosophy, know when to walk away. >> thanks so much. >> coming up next, terry crews. >> coming up next, terry crews. we'll on your medicare look part d prescriptions. at walgreens, we call that "carpe med diem." that's almost latin for "seize the day to get more out of life and medicare part d." from one-dollar copays on select plans... ...to now reward points on all prescriptions, walgreens has you covered.
