7:03 am
>> this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota, let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." the first presidential debate tonight is likely to be the most watched in history. hillary clinton and donald trump will face each other in primetime for 90 minutes. the television audience could be 100 million people or more. the latest national poll out this morning shows the race is tied at 46%. clinton led by 6 points in the same bloomberg politics poll after the convention. >> key advisers for both candidates will be here in studio 57. we'll talk to trump senior communications adviser jason miller and robbie mook. first, major garrett and nancy cordes are at hofstra university, the site of tonight's debate. major is covering how trump is
7:04 am
getting ready. good morning. >> good morning. this whole scene here today, tonight will remind the country powerfully of how improbable all of this once was. donald trump, pure novice, in the ultimate political ring with hillary clinton. statistically tide for the presidency of the united states. trump's preparations far more nonchalant than clinton's. a daring calculation, one that if successful could catapult his candidacy and if not might well crater it. >> trump is doing great. he's being himself. >> mr. trump is ready for the debate. he's very excited. >> donald trump's surrogates glossed over the light debate prep and suggested a life of real estate and reality tv may be enough. >> i think donald trump has been preparing for this debate for his entire lifetime. >> trump has held no mock debates and devoted little time to briefing books. his recent policy speeches have all been on teleprompter. a crutch he will not have
7:05 am
against hillary clinton. house speaker paul ryan sounded a cautionary note. >> hillary clinton's been doing this most her life. she is the consummate pro. this is new for donald. so i think he should obviously overprepare for it. >> leading up to the debate, trump pledged to spend $140 million on tv and digital advertising between now and election day. ten times his budget so far. the $100 million tv investment first reported by cbs news will finance ads in 13 states including three states trump added because of tightening poll numbers. wisconsin, new mexico, and maine. another predebate development -- >> donald, you're a sniffling coward. >> ted cruz buried the hatchet and formally endorsed trump, citing the need to protect future supreme court vacancies from clinton. there is also predebate high jinks, clinton's campaign invited brash billionaire and trump critic mark cuban to the debate as her guest. trump returned the psychological warfare suggesting he will put
7:06 am
gennifer flowers right alongside of had him. quick refresher, flowers revealed a decades long affair with bill clinton when he ran for the presidency in 1992. the campaign says she has not been formally invited and they don't expect flowers to attend. >> thank you very much, major. nancy cordes is inside the debate arena, tracking hillary clinton's preparations. good morning. >> good morning. the clinton camp believes tonight's debate will be so pivotal that she did just two public events all of last week, compared to the nine events that her opponent did. and they say she's been prepping for a debate that will show that she knows the issues and trump doesn't. >> clinton spent most of the weekend at home and at a nearby hotel, practicing with a small group of confidants including campaign chairman john podesta, debate guru ron klain and philippe rinus who made him a
7:07 am
natural choice to play trump. clinton studies trump's primary debates to see how opponents knocked him off stride. had her campaign is trying to get under his skin by releasing a list of what they call the seven deadly lies he might tell tonight. like his claim that he opposed the iraq war from the beginning. or that he'll get mexico to pay for a border wall. on face the nation, clinton's running mate argued that trump needs to be held to the same standard as clinton had it comes to specifics. >> i think the great virtue of the debates is you get 90 minutes to look at people and really see whether there is depth, whether there is substance. and whether there is candor and truthfulness in what they say. >> when you're practicing law -- >> clinton knows the format. she's participated in 26 presidential primary debates and needs a performance tonight that will stop her slide in the polls. >> the latest cbs news battleground tracker shows her lead has shrunk from 12 points
7:08 am
to 8 in virginia and down to 1 point in colorado. two states where her campaign was so confident a month and a half ago, they stopped airing tv ads. and that's why clinton's aides say her job tonight is to convince a wide swath of voters that trump lacks detailed policy proposals and is easily provoked. to that end, charlie, you might hear her talk about his admiration of putin or even question whether trump is worth as much as he says he is. >> robbie mook is here. is the goal tonight to tear trump down or build her up and get at the question of trust and command of issues? >> i'm really glad you asked that. hillary clinton does know she needs to earn the voters trust. we found these unfiltered moments as tim kaine said, 90 minutes up there, she can speak directly to the voters, she had the opportunity to talk about make a difference in people's -
7:09 am
lives, but how this campaign is really a part of a life-long mission to fight for kids and families, she's done really well. i think it is an outstanding question, will trump demonstrate a command of the issues and we think that's a bar every candidate needs passed. we also are concerned that trump is going to continue to lie. and that's -- >> why do you think she can change the trust dynamic in one debate when she hasn't been able to do it over a lifetime or in terms of this campaign? >> the central question of this entire campaign is which one of these candidates is going to fight on the side of everyday people and it actually has plans that will make a difference in their lives. can they -- can voters trust a candidate to get that done? and they can absolutely trust hillary. she has a lifetime record of working with both sides of the aisle, bringing people together and getting real things done. >> we keep hearing she's preparing for two trumps. what exactly does that mean? tell us a little bit about the preparation work you all have been doing. >> one of the concerns that voters have about donald trump
7:10 am
is that he doesn't have the right temperament to be commander in chief. he is erratic. we don't know whether trump is going to show up to try to have a serious discussion of the issues or whether he's going to bully. we have seen him bullying hillary with mean tweets the last few days. we just don't know who will be there. >> mark cuban in the front row, who has been very vocally against donald trump, is that a little bit of a dig to say to call him out? >> that was not the intent. both sides invite their supporters to come, we're really proud to have the support of mark cuban who came off the sidelines, he's not political. he's a businessman. has a lot of experience creating jobs. we're very proud to have a sport he's been outspoken and excited to have him there. he represents the kind of people that are coming to the campaign. republicans, republican leading independents who are concerned about donald trump's temperament. >> to follow on what gayle said, is that an early indication inviting mark cuban that part of the strategy is to provoke
7:11 am
donald trump tonight, to get under his skin? >> you know, again, we're really focused on this opportunity that hillary has to speak directly to the voters on the issues. but we are concerned that donald trump may lie. he may throw information out there and hillary will have to spend all of her time trying to correct the record rather than talking about the things she wants to. >> what do you expect the moderator do? >> we ask the record be checked. if donald trump lies, which he's done in the past, that that be checked. >> one question about the surge that donald trump is experiencing, this is a dead even. you said the race will tighten. nobody thought it would be dead even at this moment. >> well, first of all, i take -- >> there is a surge. >> i take these public polls with a grain of salt. we're seeing something slightly different on our side. but, you know, operationally it doesn't matter. we should be running like we're 20 points behind, this is the most important election in our history. it is certainly in our lifetime. we should be all in and we should try to win by the biggest margin we can.
7:12 am
>> thank you. >> thank you. >> in our next hour, we'll go inside donald trump's preparations with the senior communications adviser jason miller. that's ahead. there has been a lot of talk about whether the debate moderator should also be a fact checker. the executive director of the commission on presidential debates doesn't want that. >> commission asks independent smart journalists to be the moderators and we let them decide how they're going to do this. i don't think it is a good idea to get the moderator into essentially serving as the encyclopedia britannica. i think it is better for the person to facilitate and to depend on the candidates to basically correct each other as they see fit. >> cbs news political director john dickerson and cbs news contributor bob schieffer have moderated many debates. they're here with perspective on tonight's face-off. good morning. let me ask you, bob, since you were involved in the last campaign's presidential debates, what about janet brown just said? is it the responsibility of the candidates to fact check each other? >> yes.
7:13 am
i think the -- i think you're being unfair to both candidates if one of them makes a glaring error to not let the other person have an opportunity to call them out. i think people want to know if that person knows the answer to the question. >> that's called a rebuttal. >> if they don't, i think the moderator has to step in and say, you know, for the record, folks, and take it from there. maybe ask another question. >> there are a lot of -- there is talk that a lot of voters have still not made up their minds tonight. what are they looking for? what should each candidate do to try to get those voters on their side? >> it depends. they have two different -- basically donald trump has to show that he can be president and debate is the most formal thing we have in a campaign where a candidate looks a little bit like a president. and there is a style and so, you know, for donald trump, it is basically to present something different than the candidate who shows up at his rally. for hillary clinton, she has to
7:14 am
remind people of donald trump, show something from her heart, which is for undecided voters and for her voters. we know people become stronger partisans when they watch debates. if hillary clinton has enthusiasm problem, which some of the polls show she does and enthusiasm is different than vote intent, people may be ready to vote, may not just be excited about it. if she has an enthusiasm problem, then a debate can make people think, that's why i like her. >> you think this is more about shoring up your base than it is about reaching an undecided? >> it can be both. undecided may slosh around over the course of three different debates, but there is voting going on now. if both campaigns can grab their voters who get newly energized and bank votes, get them, you know, in line so there is an organizational benefit. >> in fact, the campaign believes that 40% of the final tally may be by early votes this year. to your point. that's why the debates are so critical. not that you'll remember going to vote. people are voting now.
7:15 am
>> that's why when we talk about facts and all of that, these debates are about so much more than somebody's position on the issues. voters want to take a measure of the person. does a person have the right stuff? does he have the dignity, the courage, how you react under pressure. i think the reason most people vote for a president is do they think this is someone that they would feel comfortable with in a time of crisis. >> therefore, what does donald trump have to do and how does he do it? >> it will be interesting to see. i mean, i have no idea what donald trump is going to do. and anybody that wants to predict what donald trump is going to do -- >> not a question of what he might do, but what does he have to do? how do you appear presidential? appears presidential as someone suggested, does he become somber and therefore less attractive? >> i think he has to just lead the impression he could handle the job. now, how he goes about that, i
7:16 am
have no -- >> is that a pretty low bar? >> that's what i think is the -- what people decide during these debates. >> do you think they're being judged differently, hillary clinton and donald trump, the clinton campaign says that she is being held to a much higher standard than he. >> i don't think so. i think they're both judged by exactly the same standards and we'll see what happens, how they decide what the standards are. >> you both know this impression will be made in the first ten or 15 minutes. >> that's right. because of twitter. so what is happening is a lot of -- a lot of reporters will be wasting their time looking at twitter instead of the 90 minutes and develop a narrative and that will start bouncing around and we see that in the last campaign. and that's not good. >> 90 minutes and no breaks. all right. thank you, both. bob schieffer and john dickerson. you can watch the debate tonight here on cbs. our live coverage begins at 6:00 pacific time. >> the world is remembering the extraordinary career and life of arnold palmer, the golfing great
7:17 am
died yesterday from heart complications at the age of 87. palmer's style and dominance on the golf course elevated the game to new heights. dana jacobson looks at his lasting legacy. >> beloved and transcendent, that's how he's being remembered today. his father, a golf pro and grounds keeper in latrobe, pennsylvania, taught palmer the game that he then helped introduce to millions. voted the athlete of the decade in the '60s, he was always true to his father's words, don't tell people how good you are, show them. >> the line is perfect. he's got it. >> known simply as the king, arnold palmer captivated the sports world with his ferocious style of play and the magnetism of a movie star. golf would never be the same when he burst on the scene in the late 1950s. he became the face of the sport and helped turn the country club game mainstream. in all, palmer won seven major
7:18 am
titles including four masters, tallying 62 pga tour wins. he was courted by presidents and spawned a rabid following of fans dubbed arnie's army. >> there goes the gallery. look at them race for positions. >> palmer's high risk, high reward approach ratcheted up the drama of the game. >> and this fellow is still hunting birdies. >> in 2011, he spoke to charlie rose. >> there is no game like it. you go out there, you tee it up on first tee, charlie. >> yes. >> it is you. a golf ball and the golf course. and there you go. >> palmer with a pioneer in marketing for athletes and paved the way for future stars. there is even a drink named after him. he also received the presidential medal of freedom and congressional gold medal. the battle between palmer and jack nicklaus defined rivalry and though nicklaus came out ahead most times, palmer says even the losses helped shape
7:19 am
him. >> they really hurt. but when i reflect on it now, and i look back, and say it taught me something, taught me how to live, and how to be a better guy and not let it defeat, be the end of my life. and i'm thankful for that. >> in a statement last night, his long time friend and rival jack nicklaus said we were great competitors who loved competing against each other, but we were always great friends along the way. arnold always had my back and i always had his. he was the king of our sport and always will be. and bob hope may have put it best, he said in bringing golf to the masses, two things mattered, arnold palmer and the mulligan. >> there is a saying in golf, every golfer who played since him should give him 15% of their earnings. >> exactly. >> because it elevated the game. >> everybody thinks it was michael jordan that made marketing in sports. arnold palmer started it. >> the friendship was genuine
7:20 am
and the competition he injected. >> people say one of the most charismatic men they ever met. donald trump is hearing from russia with love. ahead, we travel to moscow to see why the country's most popular singer,, of a record-setting sunday, we're in for a heat advisory for the entire bay area, starting off warm, only going to get warmer. temperature in the 90s around the bay today, upper 90s on the peninsula, triple digits for the warmest spots inland. we begin to cool just slightly tomorrow and more so wednesday and thursday. at the end of the week, week bring temperature into the 70s for the warmest locations.

xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto. clean better than a manual... electric toothbrush was going to he said sure, but don't just get any one. get one inspired by dentists, with a round brush head! go pro with oral-b. oral-b's rounded brush head cups your teeth to break up plaque and rotates to sweep it away. and oral-b crossaction delivers a clinically proven superior clean vs. sonicare diamondclean. my mouth feels super clean! oral-b. know you're getting a superior clean.

this campaign? >> which one of the candidates is going to fight on the side of everyday people. >> do they think this is someone that they would feel comfortable with in a time of crisis. >> therefore, what does donald trump have to do? >> it will be interesting to see. i mean, i have no idea what donald trump is going to do. >> transcendent, that's had how arnold palmer is being remembered, the athlete of the decade in the '60s, palmer was always true to his father's words, don't tell people how good you are, show them. >> one photog, tried to catch it, that was a mistake. hit in the face. >> i was trying to catch the ball and i missed it and caught the ball with my face instead of my hands. >> are you okay, though? >> i'm okay. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. a record 100 million people or more are expected to watch

tonight's presidential debate. donald trump and hillary clinton will stand on the same debate stage for the first time. the first of three scheduled 90 minute matchups will focus on securing america and achieving prosperity. >> cbs news election director anthony is here to show us where it stands now. you look so closely at the electoral map. what do you see this morning? >> we talked about a big, big lead for clinton. that has gone away. it is a narrow lead at best. what happened, norah, is that state after state moved back to being a tossup. talk about states like ohio, florida, those battlegrounds we talk about, colorado too. >> so just to stop you, you initially had it at 264 electoral votes. now it is at 191. >> actually, she had not too long ago, well up over 300 electoral votes in states leaning her way. so she is now under the 270 in
8:03 am
states that are leaning her way because in all of those key states, they all moved back to tossups. >> the question is why? >> the answer is enthusiasm on the part of her voters has gone down and so what happens in polling is not that people are switching over to donald trump or going back and forth, it is that her voters are saying they're less likely to vote and less excited about her. >> she's losing rather than him gan i gaining. >> for the most part. she needs to rev up that base. you look at younger voters, parts of her constituency she has to get all of, and they tell you, yeah, we're a little less excited, a little less likely to come out. >> she's at 264. he's at 191, the same he was several weeks ago. >> right, but for him, that's actually -- that's actually good. because as she has come down, that puts a lot of states now where he is in striking distance and that wasn't the case before. >> she's only one state away from winning. >> you could look at it that way as well, yeah.
8:04 am
>> which way do you look at it? >> i look at it this is still a race that could go either way because it wasn't the case before, right, so she's one state away, yes, but here's the thing. she doesn't necessarily win them all in a row. these states are tending to move in tandem and so yes it is one state, but states tend to swing as a group too if a big event, big change happens. >> well, if the polls are right, 100 million of us will be watching. can't wait. thank you very much. >> yep. trust is a serious trouble spot for both of the candidates. recent poll shows that 45% of voters think that donald trump is honest and trustworthy. only 36% see hillary clinton that way. on sunday, the candidate surrogates addressed the trust issue. >> i think donald trump always speaks straight from his mind and straight from his heart. i think he's the most bold truth teller to run for president of the united states. >> she has a challenge because
8:05 am
donald trump says things that aren't true. >> hillary clinton's casual relationship with the truth is well known to americans. i'm sure we'll see it on full display tomorrow night. and i really don't appreciate campaigns thinking it is the job of the media to go and be these virtual fact checkers. >> jason miller is senior communications adviser for the trump campaign. we're glad to have you at the table. >> good morning. >> couple of things. what would be your definition of success tonight for mr. trump and what makes you look at him and say he's ready for this battle? >> i think if mr. trump is able to come out and show he's the one who will get our economy back on track, he'll keep us safe, he'll want to make sure we go and renegotiate the bad trade deals, he'll stop illegal immigration. he's able to convey that message. the same things have been -- we're seeing it with the polls, the crowds coming into this week. there will be success. >> those are all talking points. i want to get to the nitty-gritty that makes you know he's on fire and ready to take
8:06 am
on hillary clinton. one to one, 90 minutes, no break. >> tonight, i think what we'll see is mr. trump is ready to be commander in chief. this is a chance where voters have seen the commercials, more from hillary's side, $250 million dumped on mr. trump, but they'll see the candidates up there at the same time on the stage together. and i think what they'll see is one candidate, very comfortable in his own skin, ready to be commander in chief, and ready to be a change agent. someone that will change our country, take in the right direction and stacked up against secretary clinton and presenting her vision in a much different direction. >> what is on the list of things not to do? >> i would say, you know, i think tonight as long as he's talking about his message and focused and talking about the contrast between the two, the vision he wants to go versus where hillary wants to go, i think that's going to be a win. i think here is the thing for mr. trump into tonight, is that he's a candidate, he's not a politician, he's somebody not -- hasn't been doing this for 30 years, not someone that has the pull test and blow dry every single answer coming forward.
8:07 am
>> one thing that mr. trump even here has said, he's the counterpuncher, he punches back when challenged. has the campaign talked about how they may do that tonight? is he going to counterpunch? >> he'll be ready for tonight. never underestimate donald trump. >> let's ask this, is he preparing not by the way she might be preparing with the thick briefing books but looking for some psychological insight insight? >> well, the one thing that we ? >> the one thing we have seen this is more on the staff end, this is more -- as we discussed as a team and getting things together, it was secretary clinton, she'll to great in her first answer. we'll see, her first answer in each of these six sections, she'll hit a home run, programmed, pulled, tested out. where secretary clinton runs into trouble are the second and third answers where it becomes more variables come in, interaction between the candidates. that's where she runs into trouble. >> people question whether he has a second and third answer that he is not deep on terms of policy, he's primarily deep in terms of a broad statement like
8:08 am
i'll build a wall. >> mr. trump has gone laid out a number of policies in the campaign, how to get the economy going, how to stop illegal immigration, he has the policy, if you go to the website you'll see he's laid out detailed plans, great piece in the wall street journal on that point. you'll see tremendous amount of substance, a remarkable clarity, and, again, we start getting into these second and third questions, because after the openings for each candidate you have the back and forth, this ten minute section. that's where hillary starts running into trouble is because you can't go and pull test all the way through the -- >> do they question each other? >> there will be some back and forth, but largely driven by the moderator. >> where is it that voters normally make up their mind in the first 10 to 15 minutes, people watching on twitter. are you concerned about that? no 90 minute break, you can't say what you need to do here or she got you there and maybe you want to go back to this. no worries or concerns about that? >> mr. trump is going to come out and talk about his vision. again, the great thing about mr.
8:09 am
trump is that he's not the politician. he's going to be the same person, wherever you see him, and wherever he's talking about. that's what is so great about going into the debate, that's why you see the energy, the crowds, the poll numbers reflecting the great numbers we have seen from other networks this morning. >> you had mock debates. >> we have not had someone stand in as a hillary clinton. that's because mr. trump remains very focused on what does he want to talk about, what does he want to communicate to the american people. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> good to have you here. >> a reminder to you, you can watch tonight's debate here on cbs, live coverage at 6:00 pacific time. the mayor of charlotte lifted the city's overnight curfew, put in place after violent protests erupted over the shooting death of an african-american man by police. hundreds of protesters marched in charlotte last night. 11 people were detained. but there were no reports of violence. over the weekend, police released dash and body camera videos of last tuesday's shooting of keith lamont scott.

reports on a bizarre selfie moment on the campaign trail. take a look at this. a crowd of people in orlando recently turned their backs to hillary clinton. this was not a snub. they were trying to snap a selfie with her. some people wondered whether hillary clinton had invited the crowd to take the selfie all at once. that would certainly make more sense that somebody said, let's all do it at the same time because it's unusual you see everybody turn their backs at the same time. >> she is clearly enjoying the moment. >> that is the way to make something go viral. everyone, take a selfie and share it. >> to that point this photo has been retweeted more than 16,000 times. national security is a featured topic at tonight's first presidential debate. a new bloomberg national poll finds 24% of americans believe the threat from terrorism and isis is the most important issue facing the country. fox news and host and anchor bill o'reilly takes on one of the country's most pivotal decisions in his latest book

8:34 am
>> sure. the camera doesn't lie and when yu have 17 guys up there, and your air time is limited, the mistakes don't really matter because there's so much clutter. but one on one with everybody analyzing every word you say and every syllable you say, it's a lot harder. >> one-on-one, 90 minutes with no break. you asked donald trump are you going to take hillary apart and he said, i have no idea. >> right. >> did you believe that answer from him? >> yeah. i do. i think he is a counterpunch. i think the trump track is he is going to try to portray the country as being in a serious crisis. all right? that is what he is going to do. but if she starts at him he has five or six bang bang bang. you saw it over the weekend. the clinton campaign invited mark cuban to sit there and that was, you know, a little of this to trump. what does he do? he one up's it with gennifer flowers. that's a thing, if he hits trump, trump comes back with fairly rehearsed lines that he has. >> that is the theater of this debate and certainly a lot of that in this campaign.
8:35 am
in terms of substance and the one-on-one, many of the papers this weekend sort of took apart donald trump in terms of detailing the number of factual inaccuracies he has laid out during this campaign. how do you think that plays itself out tonight? >> it doesn't. >> viewers don't really care about -- >> the facts? >> the facts? >> not about facts. trump himself is a generalist. he portrays himself that way. the big picture guys. country in trouble. i'm going to fix it and i'm the master negotiator. his supporters and those who may vote for him who are undecided accept the fact he is not a guy who is going to be teaching in princeton political science. they accept it. the voter is going to be looking how they conduct themselves tonight. >> how significant do you think the momentum he has now is? >> her -- the basket of deplorables really hurt her because that's condescending, speaking down. even if americans don't like him, they don't like that.
8:36 am
there's been so many things about her. she comes off as an ice queen. again, this is a lot of personality involved with this election. a lot of personality. >> you said that that was a condescending comment but some people would say some of the things donald trump has been very condescending to a wide variety of people. do you think that matters? >> yes. he has been called racist and misogynist. i think two candidates have heavy deficits going into this debate. >> it's called killing the rising sun about the dropping of the atomic bomb. >> when i started researching this book, martin duguard did the heavy researching. i didn't know eisenhower didn't want to drop the bomb. he told truman, no, don't do it. i won't tell you why because i want you to read the book. i will tell you why he didn't want to drop the bomb he wanted the glory of the invasion but it would have killed 4 to 5 million people. truman basically was there. >> you say he makes a decision, truman isn't sure what the bomb is?
8:37 am
>> he didn't really know because fdr, franklin roosevelt, who dies in georgia with his mistress in the room. another fascinating story. he never even talked to truman! he thought truman was a clerk! all right? truman never got briefed. he didn't know anything. then eleanor calls him to the white house and says he is dead. truman says is there anything i can do for you, mrs. roosevelt? she said, is there anything i can do for you? you're in trouble now. truman knew nothing. he gets all of this stuff. they're researching the bomb. he has to get up to speed on what it is. he had no idea. >> it's interesting. the long lens of history on that decision, interesting. you have carter and both bush's writing letters supporting the decision. >> i asked all five living presidents to write me a personal letter whether they would have supported truman to drop the bomb. three didn't. the two bushes and carter. all three said yes. this is speculation. i don't think he would have dropped the bomb. clinton didn't because he didn't want to get into a controversy
8:38 am
with his wife running for president. but i think clinton would have dropped it. >> some of your critics say that killing series, it's time for the killing to stop, o'reilly? >> yeah. we only sell 2 to 3 million books each time. yeah, i think some of the critics may be a little jealous, gayle, but that's just me. >> thank you. >> three more coming. >> killing the rising sun is on sale now. you can watch tonight's debate right here on cbs. our live coverage begins at 8:00 central, 6:00 pacific. >> he is an original member of hollywood's famous brat pack. i wonder if he is sick of that term? brat pack. he is on a new series. rob lowe is playing a military doctor on "code black." he's in our toyota green room. rob lowe as we've never seen him before. check out that hairdo, dude. good to see you.,, ,,,,,,,, ♪
