7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning," as you wake up in the west. hillary clinton is on capitol hill for what could be an all-day grilling. she arrived a short time ago for a special house committee hearing on the deadly benghazi attacks in 2012. her use of a private e-mail server for state department business is also likely to come up. a new poll nearly half of americans believe clinton has not been honest about how she handled e-mails at shoves but over half the people surveyed are tired of hearing about it. nancy cordes is live from capitol hill with new details on what to expect. >> reporter: good morning. secretary clinton has arrived. the hearing is scheduled to start right now. hundreds of people have been lined up for hours waiting to witness her undergo hours of questioning about a tragedy that happened on her watch. an aide says she'll argue you can never fully eliminate the risks of overseas diplomacy. >> people try to say it's about
7:04 am
hillary clinton. it's not. >> reporter: committee member martha roby says she wants to ask clinton why requests for more security were turned down by the state department. >> that's an important piece. that happened while secretarial clinton was secretary of state. we hope she'll answer that question. >> reporter: the last time clinton testified about benghazi, almost three years ago, she lost her patience in the face of republicans questioning about talking points. >> what difference at this point does it make? >> reporter: committee democrat adam schiff predicts republicans will take a more measured approach than they might have a month ago. >> i think in order to dispel the claims that were made by their own members that this is all about secretary clinton, an effort to damage her, i think at least initially they'll keep a focus on benghazi. >> reporter: democrats and a couple of gop lawmakers have said publicly that the panel is a partisan effort to damage the democratic front runner.
7:05 am
they initially wanted to hold two hearings, one about benghazi, another about her use of a private e-mail account, something the committee uncovered when it asked the state department for her e-mails. democrats argue her e-mails have nothing to do with the committee's stated purpose, to investigate the benghazi attacks that left four americans dead. you say it's not about hillary clinton, but democrats say this is the first public hearing you've held with anyone in nine months. >> it's been a while. but the state department has been stonewalling. they are the ones who have been dragging their feet. >> reporter: clinton has not had a public event since the weekend, as she prepares for this hearing that could go eight hours or longer. and she knows, norah, that even one unfortunate comment will be played in republican ads between now and election day. >> thank you so much, nancy. you can watch gavel to gavel coverage of clinton's testimony live all day today on our digital network, cbsn. this morning the democratic presidential race focuses again
7:06 am
on hillary clinton and bernie sanders. vice president joe biden ended months of speculation yesterday, saying he will not run. a new poll shows the latest on the democratic race in iowa. the des moines register/bloomberg politics poll shows hillary clinton leading bernie sanders 48 to 41%. major garrett is at the white house, where joe biden made the announcement. >> reporter: good morning. the scene his historic. for the first time ever president obama attended an event in the rose garden and said nothing. the stage was joe biden's, one he would never command again. it was a moment tinged with sadness for joe biden loyalists, because he told the country the window had closed. >> i believe we're out of time, the time necessary to mount a winning campaign for the nomination. >> reporter: biden has seriously pondered a presidential race since august. he appeared to have momentum,
7:07 am
and a draft biden effort aired two tv commercials just in case. >> you deserve a president who will never quit on you. >> reporter: but biden hesitated for weeks. it became a public spectacle. biden's potential rival, hillary clinton, turned in a strong performance in this month's first democratic debate, and biden's poll numbers began to slide, forcing him to face reality. >> while i will not be a candidate, i will not be silent. >> reporter: biden did not endorse clinton and said this about her half-joking debate reference about republicans as enemies. >> they're opposition. they're not our enemies. for the sake of the country, we have to work together. >> reporter: in a statement, clinton called biden a great vice president, adding, history isn't finished with joe because he will be fighting for all of us. campaigning in iowa, gop
7:08 am
frontrunner donald trump said biden got it right. >> biden is not running. and i think he did the smart thing, because frankly i don't know that he would have won, he wouldn't have gotten the nomination. i don't think i probably would have. and frankly, i really want to run against hillary. i really do. >> reporter: that was always the fear among those closest to biden, that a third run for the presidency would fail, and that could tarnish not only his time here at the white house but possibly his entire political career. now biden will return to familiar assignments for this president, keeping an eye on ukraine and iraq and trying to cut a deal or two with congressional republicans. >> major, thank you so much. a key conservative group in congress says it will back paul ryan to be speaker of the house. it now appears ryan will have enough votes to be elected next week. the former vice presidential candidate says he will only take the job if the factions support him, because the freedom caucus
7:09 am
supported him after a meeting last night. but some say they are not willing to meet ryan's preconditions for serving. ben carson now leads the gop field in iowa. that's according to the quinnipiac university poll out this morning. carson has 28% support. trump has 20%. that same poll showed donald trump with a 6-point lead last month. "face the nation" host john dickerson is here. good morning, john. >> good morning. >> we want to talk about benghazi and hillary clinton today. what might be expected and what are the stakes for her? >> imagine a day full of dental surgery where you have to keep smiling. that's her task. i think what to watch for is that one moment nancy mentioned. it will be a full day of testimony, four rounds of questioning. and she has to basically be calm and measured throughout, so that there is not going to lead the evening news that's going to show her losing her cool.
7:10 am
she needs the opposite. this is her last big obstacle for the month of october. >> what was at the heart of joe biden's decision not to run? >> this is kind of the way he makes decisions. the heart of it was the emotional reaction to his son's death. at the very heart of it, i think, he just couldn't pull it off. hillary clinton is a formidable candidate. to raise the money and put together an organization in the thick of a campaign, just too difficult for him to do. >> on tuesday he met with his political advisors and said there was a question, can we raise the money in time. i think there was -- my understanding is there was a question whether they could put the fundamentals in place. >> that's right. what they knew is even if they could do it, it was going to be really hard. it's very hard to build a campaign while you're running a campaign. campaigns that have tried to do that have mostly failed in the past. >> he said yesterday, he ran out of time, but people wonder is that the real story. does his dropping out give
7:11 am
hillary clinton a clear path? >> it would look like it. she's got endorsements within the party. she's doing well in the polls. she's got lots of money. this would have been a challenge to her candidacy, but now, with just bernie sanders, she's got a lot of support in those future states. tough in new hampshire, close in iowa. but if you run down the rest of the states in the democratic contest, she's doing very well. >> joe biden is really obsessed and committed to finding a cure for cancer. >> that's right. if his son asked him to run for president, and that was going to be the mission for the rest of his life, he has now put a new mission in front of him. for a person who's been in politics in washington since 1970, who has been committed to his ascent, this might be a new crusade for him. >> what about the same question in iowa? ben carson trumping donald trump. >> carson is on top, perhaps it means a conflict between the two of them. also, ted cruz very far behind.
7:12 am
he's behind even marco rubio in iowa. ben carson is the headline, but also, what happened to ted cruz in iowa? >> lots to talk about, john, thanks very much. john will be the moderator for the cbs news democratic presidential debate. watch it on november 14th, 6:00 p.m. pacific time, here on cbs. breaking news on an american military raid to rescue isis hostages inside iraq. one american was killed. david martin is at the pentagon with the unfolding story. david, good morning. >> reporter: overnight american and iraqi commandos conducted a raid into northern iraq, in isis-held territory, where a large number of kurdish prisoners were being held hostage. details remain murky, but a u.s. official says 70 hostages were freed. however, one american soldier was killed. we don't know yet how that soldier died. we don't know whether the iraqis lost any soldiers.
7:13 am
and we don't know whether there were any casualties among the hostages. there are reports, as yet unconfirmed, that a number of isis fighters were killed and others captured during the raid. this war against isis has been going on for 14 months. and this would be the first time an american soldier has been killed in combat. >> david, thank you. this morning police in sweden say a man wearing a mask attacked a school with a sword, killing a teacher. in the last hour police announced a second person has died. the stabbings took place in an industrial city in southwestern sweden. initial reports say three people were wounded. the attacker targeted people in the cafeteria area. the police say the suspect was shot and wounded. a man in new mexico is facing a murder charge for a road rage killing of a four-year-old girl. a gunman admitted to shooting into the car of her dad.
7:14 am
>> reporter: good morning. tony torrez is in custody this morning, being held on a $650,000 bond. this newest development comes after an outpouring of donations came in for lilly's family, a clear indication that this case turned from road rage into outrage. tony torrez was taken into custody wednesday afternoon while driving this grayish-green sedan. the 32-year-old later confessed to the road rage death of four-year-old lilly garcia. >> appearing to wrap up the way we hoped it would. >> reporter: the shooting happened on tuesday. lilly's father said he had just picked up her and her brother from school. both children were in the back seat and torrez allegedly cut off their pickup truck on the freeway. police say the two men exchanged heated words before torrez started shooting into the vehicle. four-year-old lilly was the only
7:15 am
one shot. she was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance but did not survive. >> the officers on scene, it was traumatic for them. they literally saw a four-year-old little girl with a severe gunshot wound, which she died from. >> reporter: authorities had offered a $36,000 reward for information that led to an arrest. it was a tip that led police to torrez on wednesday. >> i saw them talking to a guy with a red baseball cap. all the police got around him and started talk to him. >> reporter: a family member thanked the public for their support on a memorial website page set up in lilly's honor. her father memorialized his daughter on social media, writing, she was the light of my life, my little girl showed me how to truly love. police say an anonymous caller provided the information that led to yesterday's arrest of tony torrez in new mexico. this morning, the memorial fund for lilly and her family continues to grow.
7:16 am

7:18 am
>> you know, i can't describe the emotion and the feeling that's going through me right now. >> very depressing. very depressing. there's always next year, right? >> reporter: for the heartbroken club on the north side of chicago, their world series effort continues, 107 years and counting. >> cubs win world series. >> reporter: it would have been the perfect hollywood he told him. but the cubs were knocked out of the playoffs on the very day that "back to the future 2" featured a world series win. >> it's all right. in chicago we get used to this sort of thing. >> reporter: the windy city is all of this sort of thing. not even a hollywood good luck charm, star of the classic "rookie of the year," could save the cubs season. the mets arrived back here in queens later this afternoon and will face the toronto blue jays or kansas city royals in the

8:33 am
anything about it. and so we see that because people are sitting more in cash than ever before. and cash is not going to get you where you need to get to in retirement. >> so they are being conservative even thorough optimistic about the future. why? >> well, for different groups. some have gone through the financial crisis and they saw what can happen and some of them saw their homes decline 50%, some saw their assets decline 50%. they remember every single time they lost money. the millennials didn't have a lot of assets and are investing and they are spending most of the time on their computer is about financial advice and financial information. they are actually investing in the future. and a lot of people are also nervous and staying in cash because it's a security blanket. and they are very nervous about a lot of the headlines and they just don't want to be in that

8:35 am
for school or save money? i'm going to buy my kid the money because they knee shoes for school. >> but you need to save for retirement because you're living much longer. maybe if you take care of your kids as well they will allow you to move back in with them because you're going to need to move back in with them. >> you sound like my mother. she used to say that all the time! >> the average person claims that they need 45,000 dollars of income for retirement. and if you take their assets today and what it's generating because they have so much in cash, they are only generating 9,000. there is a 36,000 dollar gap and you cannot make up that gap by staying in cash. >> where should we invest? >> without respect to stocks or particular things, give us the rules that you think work in terms of what you do. >> so everyone's risk profile is different. your age is different. but, in general, most people in the early stages of their life
8:36 am
should be 65% in equities and 35% in bonds and very little in cash. over your lifetime, that equity percentage declines and the bond percentage increases. today, the average household has 65% to 70% cash. you can't invest for the future in the future and what we are trying to create awareness about, it's not timing the market. it's time in the market. so people need to get invested today, especially the millennials. the millennials are actually doing this. they are spending time. they realize they need to use technology, but they also realize they need advice and they are actually going and getting advice and they are teaching the next generations how to do this. >> rob kapito, always good advice from you. thank you for joining us in the studio. this morning we continue our high school honor roll series celebrating super bowl number

mapping so they will be taking turns. we won't necessarily be speaking with the surgeon who is doing something delicate. we are respecting their views. >> by the way, i had a conversation with matt. >> matt who? >> matt lauer. >> i told matt i would be here this morning. he said, why? i explained. he said, oh, cool. >> did you tell him you're watching our show this morning? >> he knows that. he knows that. >> matt is a very smart guy. >> he is, indeed. >> let me just go back to this
8:47 am
estimation too. surgery will last for two hours. >> the surgery will actually last about six hours. we will have the two hours that we think the viewers will most learn from. >> is this a one. time only event? >> this is a onetime only event. it's going to be broadcast live in the united states. it's going to 117 countries and 45 different languages. so what i think in addition to celebration of the brain we are hoping to demystify the surgery because the surgery has great potential for people who not only sump from parkin son's. if they can figure out which is faulty they have the opportunity to address a lot of problems. >> it's fating. will it be graphic? >> no. >> we won't see blood? >> is there no blood involved. another thing. if you're tuning in for a gore fest, this is not the place for you. >> i want the patient to live. i'm fascinated by this but this
8:48 am
is scary. >> several incisions about the size of a nickel so not talking blood here. the mystery in this is will it work? will we see the tremors disappear? >> what you hope is people understand the possibilities so that there will be much more funding for research and everything else. >> exactly right. in greg grindley's case he was afraid of this surgery. when you think they are fooling with your brain you figure other things i'd rather do but it has the great potential for other people. >> for patients like greg grindley what has been the results? >> hard to tell because the range of people suffer and the extent to which they suffer you can judge it subjectively. it has great success and only government-approved i think since 2002 but it's had great success. >> a what is the most dramatic change you've seen in morning television? i know you have experienced it and watched it. >> charlie, i've told you this.
8:49 am
i think every generation that does morning television thinks theirs is better than the wone that followed an there is truth so that and i take exception of that. i like your slogan. >> do you miss morning tv? >> i'm sorry. what? >> do you miss morning tv for yourself? >> i think rather be like tracey and have fecal matter flowing than do that. >> we are tight on bryant. we have to go. would you like to say happy birthday to chris lake? it's his birthday. i bet he gives us extra time for that! >> here is one for you. i would like to say happy birthday to my ex-intern chris lake. how about that? >> now we know where he learns everything. >> brain surgery live airs sunday on the national geographic channel. geographic channel. you're watching,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
