he had just gained victory in the democratic primary for president. the doctor in the role to try to save kennedy had been lost in history but not to his family. his daughter is here she's our michelle miller. >> this is a very personal story, part of my own family lore. growing up my father used to talk about how he rushed to senator kennedy's side. but not until my own son dared me to prove it did i look for the evidence to back up what my dad had told me. with calm precision dr. ross miller described to cbs news correspondent terry drinkwater the tragedy that had unfolded backstage hours earlier. >> can you describe the senator's wounds? >> well they were massive blood and head injuries. the extent of them could not be ascertained immediately. >> i never knew this interview existed. few did. it was buried deep within the cbs news archives.
8:08 am
>> how did mrs. kennedy appear to take this? >> well obviously, she was terribly upset. i thought she handled herself excellently. she was not in a state of panic. she was deeply concerned about her husband. >> my father campaigned for kennedy and became his delegate. a compton city councilman, he believed the senator was the best hope for bridging the nation's economic and racial divide. he and hundreds of supporters were celebrating kennedy's victory in the california primary. >> it's on to chicago, and let's >> and panic rippled over the ballroom. >> is there a doctor in the house, please? >> five rushed backstage to help, including my father a trauma surgeon. kennedy's friend paul schrade, a union official who shared the stage with him minutes earlier, was first person who went down. he took a bullet to the head while standing next to the senator. >> there's still a dent there. the bullet went into the first

8:11 am
camera's around my neck. and every once in a while, i would reach down and go like that. that's how this picture was made. >> but of all the pictures he took, it seemed none captured my father tending the injured. for decades, etheridge said he couldn't talk about that night with anyone who was there with him. >> i find it quite difficult because we all know what would have happened. >> what would have happened? >> the country would be in a far better place i believe, had he become president. >> the loss of kennedy so traumatized etheridge, he fled to the mountains of mont. paul schrade sought solace in the desert. eventually both found their sense of purpose. schrade helping to build the robert f. kennedy school on the site of the former ambassador

hotel. the ballroom where kennedy gave his final speech is now the library that bears schrade's name. etheridge went on to publish two books on bobby kennedy. he allowed us to go through some of his unpublished photos. that's when something jumped out at me. bill, i think we may have found him. >> where? >> i think we may have found him. >> let me see. >> it's a picture inside the good samaritan hospital. there in the corner standing just outside of kennedy's room the good dr. miller. >> yes, it's him. >> that's him. >> that's him. >> finally, the photographic proof that my dad actually did what he said. my family history forever intertwined with the night that may have changed the course of american history. thank you. >> all right. all right. >> and that's where we first aired this report i was contacted by dozens of people who said they knew my father and

welcome back to "cbs this morning" and happy new year. in less than three weeks, president obama begin his sixth year in office. last year was full of challenges setbacks and a few small victories nchl 2014 the white house will take on many of the same issues including obama care, nsa surveillance and iran's nuclear program. >> with us this morning our chief white house correspondent major garrett, dee dee. >> major garrett, you're there every day, hould would you rate
8:31 am
this past year? >> it did not work out well. if you looked he was in the middle 50s. he's now in the mid to low 40s for all of those. so all of those things have lost 10 to 12 to 15 pointss depending ontown poll. not only has his approval suffered, but all of the fundamentals that a president relies upon in his second term to maintain his relevance and to project authority are weaker than they were a year ago. >> you know dee dee it looks like there was a misstep that the republicans made with the shutdown and the rollout of the obama careweb site which was so devastating to the president's credibility and his poll numbers. >> it's still hard to understand how that happened why they didn't see such a huge problem coming down the tracks for them. they made a lot of progress fixing the website. the front end is working much
8:32 am
better. it's incumbent on them. it will be gauged by how successful the program is, whether it provides coverage for people who don't currently have it. but the president needs to make a pivot. he needs to figure out how to get some things down that answer the question dho you care about the middle class. that's been the strength of his presidency. he needs to figure out how he can make progress without necessarily going through congress on things that people actually care about and will feel in their lives. >> do you think they'd be having the problems they're having if obama care had. had such a debacle? >> i think it was a tough year but there's no question it got quantitatively -- >> we know the parties that control the white house tend to suffer when the approval rating is below 50%. if he wants to recover here what has he got? six months?
8:33 am
>> reality is what matters. they say we have a communications problem. we're going to turn it around. we're shuffling it up a little bit. look, if you turn the actual conduct of the war in iraq around, unless you recover from the harriet miers debacle and two others things it's not going to turn around and it's the same here. if obama care turns around but i'm doubtful it will. if the actual premiums and coverage -- if people like it and iran stops nuclear weapons i think president obama will say a year from now i went through a lot of tough stuff, but look at the fundamental issues. i'm going beto be vindicated. >> one ghoul year for the republican party either bill. >> number there have been some rough patches. honestly if you look at where they were a year ago, after
8:34 am
romney had lost i think they had given in intelligently on the tax hikes for the welly there was huge internal fighting. they've connell out of it actually better than i would have expected. and, again at the end of the day it's about the party in the white house. republicans are look pretty optimistically now after 2014 and maybe taking back the senate. then they need to really think about 2016 and have a positive conservative or former agenda. not just capitalize. >> you see the economy picking up theme. >> people are feeling better about their own personal financial situation. they don't credit very much. you asked about time. a key marker will be a state of the union address. he's going to have to have credibility. the obama carrolle crystalized it.
8:35 am
it was a huge issue not just for that but what you're doing on behalf of security and how you're balancing privacy rights. the president's lost tremendous amount of support from young vouters because they didn't anticipate he would be like george bush and possibly more so. if the president doesn't take that head on at the state of the union -- i predict he will -- he's going to have a problem. >> i was going to say, what are you hearing, anthony, about the state of the union, their feeling about what they're doing? >> you have to apologize for obama care and set that debate. >> has. that been done? >> by the 20th of january the preident will have a couple of things that is not currently noble, which is how many people signed up, how many people were successfully covered, and how is moving twarpd the march 31st end of enrollment time. there will be time to access all
8:36 am
of those things and anecdotes and all of those things. deal with nsa, talk about iran and make one last push where the republicans and the president might find common ground deviation. >> to the point that dee dee made, the middle class is still an issue. they're in even worse trouble now. you talk about obama's numbers falling. they've fallen precipitously. and the election ultimately will be the election about the economy, again, i suspect, because that's what people really care about. how does he shift that debate? >> i think one of the things he'll do in the state of the union to address that is talk about things he can do without going to congress. there are certain things you have to get done. immigration reform orks farm bill, only things that can be accomplished legislate actively. this is a strength of the new one, john podesta, what can he do to move things forward that
8:37 am
don't involve congress and without the different agencies and departments of the government. i think you'll hear the president talk about here's what we're going do while we try to get past the bipartisanship. >> they really need to do more with the budget deal investigation been cut in november. i think paul ryan is in january going to announce a pretty big republican set of forms that will replace obama care so they can deal with the challenge which you don't have anything to propose in obama care's place and then i think the growth agenda is the challenge for both parties. the republicans have been too obsessed. we kept the spending level for two years buchl that doesn't tell people how -- you know that doesn't improve opportunity and social ability in america. the obama administration has been worried so they've actually lost the focus on that. if you think what's the republican's agenda to help main
8:38 am
street middle class, i would suspect most would have trouble on either side. >> and the republican party is also suffering an identity crisis where you see more and more speaker of the house willing to take on conservative groups who criticize the ryan budget deal where you see more and more what you would consider establishment conservative republicans like is senator john cornyn being challenged by republican tea partiers. how big is this war and who wins its? >> it's a struggle at the time. there hasn't been this since 1997 and 1978. what came out of that? some healthy debates for the party. i think most of what we're now seeing, though, is sort of the residue of the fights of 2013. e'd be pretty surprised if they don't get pretty united. >> who will run them in 2016 will be play of this if it's chris christie versus ted cruz
8:39 am
versus marko rubio. >> you can have pretty big primary contests and come out strong irif debates are kept under control and fundamentals are agreed upon. >> there's going to be -- it depends on who wins the primaries, whether it's the establishment win. >> you said here on the first day 2014. we've got little ways to go. >> you have the last word. >> the president's authority and clouds wayne clouds wane as it naturally does, he also has to understand and try to direct the post-obama cam pavement that's not really easy. you have joe biden looking at it. hellory clinton and he has to influence what is the party going to be. is it going to be a third term
8:40 am
or something else and i'm not sure if they'll figure it out. there are those pushing much harder. the president's not all together comfortable with that. will that be the legacy he leaves more san than he ran on? that's going to be an
