good morning to our viewers on the west. it is wednesday, january 4th, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead, including the challenges facing president-elect trump and incoming white house chief of staff reince priebus. two former presidential chiefs of staff andy card are in studio 57. first here is today's eye opener at 8:00. president obama has arrived in the capital, to meet with democrats, urging them not to back down on obamacare. >> throughout the campaign, trump threatened american companies if they moved jobs overseas. that may be having an impact. >> what can they do if they're
8:01 am
targeted? >> they're viewing this as crisis management, not different if it's a natural disaster. the principal sent a letter to parents saying she was deeply concerned by what she saw. turkey's prime minister spoke a short while ago, calling on the country to stand tall. >> you save titanic, icebergs but according to a new theory, to the ice we can add fire. place around the vatican where you can get classic roman dishes. turns out you can get a classic dish of a very different sort. a big mac. >> on new year's eve i even got to hang out at times square. they don't tell you how long you have to spend at times square. hours. luckily i was near the stage and found an outlet. but it was like plugged in and said like m. carey sound, something like that. i don't know. so i pulled it out. i'm charlie rose with gayle
8:02 am
king and norah o'donnell. president obama will meet shortly with democrats on capitol hill. he will urge them not to give up on the affordable care act. the president wants congressional democrats to focus on the good parts of the law and get republicans to think twice about repealing it. vice president-elect mike pence is on capitol hill right now, meeting with house republicans to plan their strategy to get rid of obamacare. they've already set a measure timeline for repeal. >> it will literally begin on day one before the end of the day, we do anticipate that the president-elect will be in the oval office, taking action to both repeal executive orders and also set into motion through executive action policies to implement. the first order of business is to repeal and replace obamacare. >> the gop had to deal with the discord on the first day of the new congress. house republicans were forced to reverse a closed door vote they
8:03 am
took the night before. original vote gave congressmen more control over an independent ethics body charged with investigating their behavior. swift criticism from both parties and president-elect trump said republicans should, quote, focus on tax reform, health care and so many other things of far greater importance. >> the president-elect will be joined by a new administration after his inauguration in 16 days. as part of the transition, reince priebus met last month with the men who have done the job for other presidents, including andy card and daly. he delivered news of the world trade center attacks to the president on september 11th, 2001. bill daley served in the clinton administration and was president obama's chief of staff. great to have both of you here. andy, let me start with you. what do you make of president-elect trump sort of openly questioning our
8:04 am
intelligence community's assessment that russia has been behind this hacking? >> i don't mind questioning the intelligence community and challenging them. but you don't want to demoralize them or diminish their ability to do their job. they're professionals and they work very, very hard. and they're diverse. it's not monolithic thinking in the intelligence community. it's a very diverse community. i don't want to see him demoralize those who put together the intelligence work for the president and take his intelligence from people who don't have security clearance. >> bill, you have mr. trump this morning referencing the views of julian assange. he tweeted that a 14-year-old could have hacked the election. >> it's outranlgs. wanted in sweden on a sexual charge against young women. the fact that the president-elect even mentions his name, vis-a-vis a discussion
8:05 am
where he's implying our national security people aren't as competent as julian assange in figuring out who hacked or how it was hacked is outrageous. >> current cia chief said yesterday quoting assange, he's not exactly the -- >> maybe snowden knows what's going on in russia because he's there more than our people do. it's crazy. i think that's time that stopped when you're 16 days away from taking over the reins of the most powerful country in the world. we need them to work together. >> he's simply ignoring their advice because the chief in staff, in part, is able to say no to the president? >> i'm confident that reince priebus will have the capacity to say no to the president.
8:06 am
he can live up to the responsibilities. i do think the president will have to find more discipline just over time, just over the amount of time it takes to do the job. you can't really opine on everything coming through the pipeline. >> there's a notion of one president at a time. >> yes. >> this president is out there, doing things that suggests he's already president. >> he has been -- he has a phenomenal relationship with the american people. and it's a direct relationship. something we haven't seen in other presidents. >> and could be good? >> it almost has to be good, because it's happening and i'm not sure that you're going to put that genie back in the bottle. i think the tweet world will be our world for a long time. >> what about one chief of staff at a time? in the trump white house it's been reported that reince p priebus and steve bannon have co-positions. >> it was announced they would be equal.
8:07 am
that presents a problem in my mind. it's all about what the president wants. until he's in the oval office -- you get some indication there now but the president's message was i'm going to have free flowing whether it's his daughter, son-in-law and obviously kellyanne conway is as important as anyone we've named so far. that has to be managed by a chief of staff. if he can't manage that, that group and can't manage the president, you have a problem. >> you had jim bakker and ed meese. >> you did for a short period. >> valerie jarrett with president obama. how much does the president allow the chief of staff to have the responsibility for managing the white house and managing time. >> what would you be saying to the president-elect today if you were talking to him and advising him? >> taste your words before you spit them out. everything that you utter as president has a consequence some place in america or the world. and respect the most valuable
8:08 am
resource you have which is time. and you're going to be making only the toughest decisions as president. don't try to make every government decision. >> barack obama always says only the hardest decisions come to his desk. >> right. all the easy ones are made by someone else. that's why they come to the oval office. i would also say think before you tweet or speak. before it was before you speak. not before you tweet. because people around the world believe when a president speaks what he's saying or tweets. and there's ramifications to that. so, you can't just -- it's not like a campaign. 16 days from now is a very different thing. so far, i would say it doesn't look like people get the fact that it's going to be different. they're going to try to continue this sort of campaign, in my opinion, craziness, going forward, tweeting about julian assange when you're in a dispute with the intelligence agencies and quoting somebody, basically, and giving them a little
8:09 am
credibility versus your own intelligence groups. and someone who many people in the intelligence agency believe damaged our national security with what he did. it's just, in my opinion, outrageous. >> what's the most important attribute the chief of staff has to have? one word, bill. one word, andy. >> patience. >> i'm going to say discipline. self discipline and introduce discipline to the process. >> great to have both of you here. >> hope you'll come back. >> yeah. >> andy card, bill daley. police in boston are connecting with the community in unlikely ways. ahead, in our series "perfect union" how ,,

8:17 am
program operates homicides have remained flat. but throughout boston, homicides went up 36%. pollock sees these teens as the agents of change. >> it begins not because they have a problem but something to offer. >> reporter: they're paid to organize events and recruit new members, including police officers like zach crossen. he met dante in the park this summer, a case of mistaken identity. >> in my mind i'm thinking we're in a neighborhood where there's been some recent shooting activity. >> reporter: were you worried about stereotyping? >> no. >> reporter: this young man? >> no. i get it. i'm not naive to understand i'm a white police officer in a predominantly minority neighborhood but that's something to overcome. >> and they did. dante handed officer crossen a

flyer. do you routinely hand out flyers to police officers? >> i do now. >> reporter: there's a time things might have gone very differently for dante. >> you had dropped out of school, homeless. you were considering selling drugs. what stopped you? >> there's no love in the streets, you know. so only two ways out. drugs or jail. >> but there's a third choice you made. >> change. >> reporter: it's been a tough life for you. >> uh-huh, real tough. >> reporter: he is now back at school, working to graduate this spring. but he and officer zach are not naive. the faces of dead, unarmed black males killed by police and men in blue killed on the job run through their minds every day. >> i want to go home to my

family just as much as anybody else wants to go home to theirs. >> reporter: still what's happening here is what they believe has freed boston from the fate of so many other cities. >> like how me and zach are, how i can sit down and have a conversation with an officer. if there happens to be a time where i have to be stopped there's not going to be that hostility because that's dante. we're on common ground. >> dante is technically homeless. is he staying with friends and with the help of teen empowerment he hopes to have a home soon and dreams of becoming a social worker one day because so many social workers have helped him through his tough time. >> i love this story zblie . >> i do, too. >> the attorney general said something interesting to me once. she said the problem is that most people meet a cop for the first time on a negative basis. you get a ticket, pulled over or something. first time you meet a cop should be on a positive basis, that community support should begin
