health officials say the flu vaccine is your best protection against getting the flu. there are a lot the reasons people do not get the shot. what is fact and what is fiction? >> reporter: flu outbreaks can happen as early as october so it is important to get vaccinated soon. common myths may prevent some people from getting the shot. one popular misconception is you can get the flu from the vaccine. but, the doctor says he flu shot contains noninfectious particles. >> it is really impossible to get it from the vaccine. people who do actually come down with influenza after getting the vaccine it may be because it takes two weeks for the vaccine to work. >> reporter: lots of viruses circulate this time of year but not all of them are the flu. collectives -- class it

4:25 pm
>> he is a unique person. he has been successful at everything. in his life he has five championships as a player. he was a fantastic general manager. he is an elite broadcaster. so, he was at the pinnacle of everything that he has done so he knows how to succeed and win. right now we are just supporting him. he is going to a difficult time personally. we think about him as a human being more than a coach. but if you want to parlay that into how much we miss him, tremendously, steve kerr is an all-star person. he is an all-star coach and you can't replace him. so it is up to the players to take accountability. we believe in the rest of the coaching staff. but, there is no easy answer to that question. it is going to be difficult, it is going
4:26 pm
to be harder but that is the challenge we all have to face. our thoughts and prayers will stay with steve. we are confident he will be back but, in the meantime it is about getting him back to health and then we worry about the golden state warriors. >> steve kerr is on leave indefinitely after complications from surgery. there is no timetable for his return. today's event was not the only appearance by warriors. steph curry is playing at the johnny miller pro am in napa. this is all part of the open which is set to begin tomorrow. more than 15.3 million

4:28 pm
4:29 pm
reaction starting to come in from last night's first
4:30 pm
democratic debate. unlike certain moments that the republicans had last night debate was a symbol of fear. >> reporter: in a city known for entertainment the hottest ticket in town was not your usual vegas they are, the five top democrats faced off in their parties first debate. while some pundits are saying hillary clinton came out on top, the biggest loser may have been vice president joe biden who is considering a late entry into the race. >> it makes it harder for him to make the case. hillary clinton -- >> reporter: hillary clinton even got a surprising bit of help from her top arrival. >> the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your e-mails. >> reporter: that is not to say she did not have a target on
4:31 pm
her back. former rhode island governor lincoln chafee punches turk judgment over her vote authorizing the 2003 were in iraq. >> that is an indication of how someone will perform in the future. >> reporter: republican candidates are reacting saying, clinton should not be let off the on her e- mails. >> they may not care about it but the people in this country do. >> reporter: last night debate was the first of six democrats have agreed to. meanwhile, the republicans were square off again on october 28. >> our political analyst joins us now for more on this debate. let's start with the chatter that hillary clinton was the winner. do you think that she did win? >> it is easy sometimes to
4:32 pm
paint hillary clinton of a caricature until she stands on stage and talks about herself and what she wants to do. she clearly did that last night. so, i think she was the winner. >> brian, e-mails, my goodness, it seems like bernie sanders had a chance to take that topic to his advantage but instead he said let's forget it. let's stop talking about the e-mails. was at a good move? >> obviously the american public is interested in the e-mail controversy and so his taking a pass on it was sort of the theme of the night. there was not any real arguing back and forth. the one thing you did see was a lot of concentration on some issues and hitting the republicans on a regular basis. >> do you think they should have been more debate about the e- mails? >> no, the american people --
4:33 pm
most americans don't want to hear it. what they are thinking about is my job, my school, my kids safety. republicans care about the e- mails because they are trying to find anything to knock her down. it is really an issue that resonates with the right wing republican base. it is not relevant. >> in fairness that is not what the polling is showing. the polling shows that people are interested. they have a concern about her credibility and her honesty. whether it ends up being a issue are not is another thing. >> it is also a distraction. republicans who are not with the american people on most of the issues they have got to find a way to distract the campaign from the issues that favor president obama and the agenda that hillary clinton wants to carry forward. >> to your point that is what
4:34 pm
bernie sanders was saying. the people he talked to do not want to hear about the e-mails. but, brian what is the moment you took away with the last night? >> what you take away from the debate is there was only one person on the stage that will emerge as a national contender and that is hillary clinton. bernie sanders will not get the nomination. neither will the other three. in fact, a couple of them performed poorly last night. if anything you could take away that the race right benefit from someone who can discuss the issues with hillary clinton person to person with a lot the vigor. >> a question that i like to is what was the greatest threat to the us right now? hillary clinton said nuclear weapons. do you agree? >> there are a lot of different
4:35 pm
answers. we face a lot of challenges right now. to be forced to rank them it is hard to rank them. these are all important issues. we don't expect our president to be a one issue president. >> it is obviously for top priority if she says nuclear weapons. >> but, it is not her only priority and that is important. >> we have to talk about donald trump. he was tweeting throughout the entire thing. it took almost two hours for his name to come up. was at a good move by the candidates? >> donald trump does not need any more oxygen. he creates enough oxygen for himself. there is an old saying that if you are in the business of committing suicide don't step in and help them. the republican party is really struggling right now with donald trump at the top.
4:36 pm
it is reflecting some core values about the base of their party. there is really no reason for the democrats to jump into that. >> the campaigns have talked and they said let's focus on the issue. let's not bring donald trump or republicans in to it. let's talk about our issues. every so often let's hit the republicans but let's stay on our message and they did that. >> joe biden, is the outer in? >> the opening is much smaller now. the rationale was hillary clinton is not strong enough. last night she proved that she is. >> i think he could still be in. but he has got to be looking at it. >> thank you both. >> i think it would be healthy to have joe biden in. the more the merrier.
4:37 pm
