7:57 am
sunshine tomorrow. >> definately need umbrella. >> at least nice looking forecast today. >> not good to be on the roads this morning accidents all over the place some high volume. check out this, this is city avenue approaching conshohocken state road. we have vehicle here, crashed into the wall, going the other way, so certainly you need to get the lane scape ers out there and fix that, once they get rid that far car. so not good morning there. ninety-five, heading into cottman, slow crawl, high volume out there on the area roadways, no reported delays on mass transit. diana? >> thanks, next update 8:25, up next on cbs this morning more on hillary clinton the first democratic contender, in the presidential race. more local news and weather you can continue to watch

8:00 am
it is monday april 13th, 2015. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including presidential candidate hillary clinton. her appeal to regular voters and her chances against a republican. but first here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> like the announcement video, this trip is designed to show that she can connect with voters and doesn't expect a coronation. >> does she, will she have to distance herself from president obama, do you think? >> she will. the question is how far will she get? >> it was during the struggle that robert bates who was part of the task force that day made the fatal error. >> slagle was charged this morning. there's still question as to
8:01 am
whether the other officers did everything they could to save scott's life. >> is what they're doing illegal? >> no. maryland law is really specific as opposed to a lot of other states. >> scotland yard is under fire this morning. they're calling it a highly audacious robbery. >> charlie, you smile when you read the story. it's so great to see dreams come true. at 14 he said this is what i'd like to do. now he's done it. >> we thought it would be fun if you actually filmed the video yourself. hold up the phone and you can look natural. >> okay. >> i am running because i want to be a voice for women everywhere. >> did someone say women everywhere? >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. hillary clinton is traveling to iowa for her first event of the 2016 campaign.
8:02 am
many did not expect to find her traveling by van. she is tweeting from the road. >> clinton launched her second campaign with a video highlighting everyday americans. later today senator marco rubio is expected to enter the republican presidential race. john bloomberg is with us. john, good morning. >> hello. >> so far is it a humble rollout? >> you know. it's not possible for a humble rollout. >> the van is called scooby. >> there's a little humility to that road tripping. there's another focus that we've ruled out. in this video, she's trying to say this is about voters and not about me and the video expresses that. i'm not going to be on the big stage, grandiose.
8:03 am
>> eaves fighting for the middle class, aren't they? >> everybody always is. it's a complicated definition. everybody thinks they're middle class, even this rich and super poor. they're not using that term. everyday americans is the term. so many think it's freighted now with insecurity rather than solidity solidity. >> there are many people who will be voting who have never voted before. but i was surprised or were you surprised about bill de blasio? a lot of people were surprised when they asked will you support her and he basically said not so fast. >> they had been very close for a long time. >> he ran her campaign. >> he ran her campaign. a lot of -- governor cuomo. for him to take that posture, not only i was surprised but apparently the clinton people were furious. >> why did he do it? >> you know, people on the progressive side of the party, we saw elizabeth warren on this
8:04 am
show last week saying i want to see what she has to say. the proi depressive wimg of this party seems to be taking the posture they want to call the tune a lit bit and they're not ready to give love right out of the gate. >> rhetorically she's addressing the concerns. people where the deck is stacked against them. >> to gayle's point about not having voted for her, you know she needs to get to young people. she's going have a lot of support from african-americans, latinos, they are the constituents who always liked the clintons a lot. >> the new generation of voters she is untested there and she will need a lot of young support. they're much more up for grabs than some of these other constituencies where she will probably be very strong. >> certainly more to come. thanks. >> it does not take a super power to take down the united states in a brutal siper attack. that's part of the message uncovered in last night's "60
8:05 am
minutes" report. kroft asked cyber security expert kevin padilla about it. this is an exchange we did not see last night on "60 minutes." >> we had a nation staid for ideological reasons or whatever reason attack the sector. it's clear to me we'll have rogue nation states that have faced it. the united states is in glass house in cyber. they've got great ships and powerful planes and missiles and great troops but in cyber they're a glass house. there are nation states that have recognized that asymmetry, that can do harm in space and we receive that in 2014. >> would you expect to see something like this happen? >> if i had been asked that in october, what's the worst thing con ed or utility going down or
8:06 am
the financial sector. we always knew sooner or later a nation state would probably delete something. i didn't see the release of private documents. i wouldn't have guessed that at all. >> and what is the next demarcation? >> so great question because this last one was so shocking and unpredictable it actually makes the next one potentially harder to predict. the capabilities on the offense are going to keep getting better because they're getting lots of operational experience and when we have ike logical conflict that cyber component is coming. what i couldn't predict and why sony is a big demarcation line is the trigger event, that's wholly up predictable. >> steve kroft weighs in on the hacking threat online. for more head to

>> good morning. jach is one of the most homogenous countries on earth and that newest beauty queen here is prompting a new debate about what it means to be japanese. walking through the section of tokyo, arianna miamoto certainly turns heads and she wants to use that attention to change attitudes. why did you want to be miss university of japan? japan still has racial issues she told us and i wanted to do something about it. when miyamota was crowned miss university in march, her surprise on stage was real. she was the first ever winner to be buy racial. her father is african-american her mother japanese. at first i can't want to compete, she told us, but then a close friend who was also biracial committed suicide.
8:15 am
that's when i decided to do something about the suffering he'd endured. >> your friend killed himself because he was mixed race and being made fun of? >> he really hated being half japanese, she said and not being fully accepted into japanese society. japan, an island not open to the world until late 1900 still remain dice verse today. at the tokyo gym where she works out twice a week it's hard to imagine this now confident stunning 20-year-old was once a bullied kid. whenever the teacher told us to hold hands, other children thought my black skin would rub off on them so they said don't touch me, she remembered. some kids wouldn't get into the pool with me. others threw garbage at me. the beauty queen is constantly

smiling these days says she was ready for the criticism that erupted online. one post said japan should be represented by a pureblood. others expressed disappointment. while many more questioned whether she was truly japanese. for the record she is. in fact, she demonstrated the calligraphy skills she used as a kid growing up here. >> very nice. >> i sit on the floor, she told us. i take off my shoes when i go in the house. i use chopsticks. i know nothing but a japanese lifestyle. she knows nothing but japan. >> what is this conversation you want. >> international marriages are happening and there will be more by racial children she told us. i want them to be as accepted in japan as they would in the u.s. i want society to get used to
8:17 am
that idea. >> miyamoto spent two years living in arkansas during high school so she was exposed to different ways of thinking and thinking about people. while we've been working on this story we've been talking with people who are mixed race japanese who are watching the story and looking up to her. >> thank you. people around the world looking up to her. >> it's so good she's speaking out especially following the suicide of her friend. in the beginning she was forced to say she's japanese on the inside. she called mariah carey an inspiration. the mtv movie awards always find a way to stay current. >> after months of speculation hillary clinton finally announced she's taking zane's spot in one direction. >> ahead, highlights from the award ceremony raising from the poignant to the provocative. that's next on "cbs this

8:34 am
to character" which is a fascinating book tell me about how you see the hillary clinton announcement and her possibility in this campaigns and what she's worry about. >> obviously she's an underdog against the lincoln chafee juggernaut. >> i was talking about that last week. >> she understands correctly that people sense there's something missing, something's broke down. she's doing the humility thing is taying down. the question for me is. skills. she hasn't done that in her career, but we'll see if she can do that. >> can she do that or have people convince her to do that? >> right now she's a monopoly, which is great but they suffer. they get jagged around the edges. she has to be fresh. something new. >> this word "humility" comes comes
8:35 am
at a perfect time. you say you wrote this book to save your own sowell because you were born with a natural shallowness. >> i was up in frederick, maryland, who were tutoring immigrants,000 read. it takes like seven years to learn. i walked in a roomg with 30 40 women. they radiated the goodness and patience and service. they weren't talking about how great they were. nothing about themselves at all. and i thought, well i've achieved more career success than that and i looked at their inner light and thought, i don't have that. the book was a four or five-year indoctrination to gather friends who are dead but they can be dead for us and lead us the way. i don't know if i can get there but we can take the journey together. >> you profile great thinkers and leader ss.
8:36 am
what is it? >> understanding your own weakness. we're raised in a society called the big me society. in 1950 there was are you a very important question they said yes. asked again in '85, a very important person. the road to character is built by your own weaknesses. the road to success is by your own talents. >> so for example, dwight eisenhower, i didn't know this story about him. his anger. his temper. >> he had this amazing mom. when he was he went out trick or treating. she wouldn't let him. he punched a tree so hard in the front yard he rubbed all the skin off his knuckles. he went to his room and cried. he said it was the most important conversation. he had a weakness. he had overcome it and became strong in his weakest spot. >> let me be ought biographical
8:37 am
for you. you went there. were you troubled in your own sense? when you said about your soul -- i had to -- i knew i had to work harder to save my own soul were you worried about your soul? >> i wasn't in any sort of crisis or falling apart. i was fine. >> but there was something missed in your life? >> i spent so much on my life, my career. i hope i was a decent dad, am a decent dad, but we have a moral obligation to get better every day. no matter how old you are, there's so much left to do to become better every day. >> go ahead. my sense of the question was how do you get there? >> so some of the things you can do are practical. you can say what is my core sin. how can i confront that every day? you can sit home at the end of the day and say how did i do today? was i really present for people when they needed me? >> he writes all his mistakes and pledges to do better tomorrow. but you're seeing disturbing
8:38 am
things. you're saying a gallup poll 19250. high school jeerns were asked were they important, 12% said yes. 1980 80%. >> he mention that earlier. >> i heard that. what is wrong with believing in yourself and theying that you're special and i want to be good am a good person and want to make money? >> i think that's great. humility to me it's not thinking of yourself it's radically unawareness. knowing your strengths but knowing your weaknesses. being able to see yourself from a distance. we live in a culture that wants us to think well of ourselves. we tell our kids how great they are. that's great for your career if you're branding yourself. if you want a high light reel. but if you want inner growth you've dwobt to be radically honest. >> you say distinguish between resume virtues and eulogy
8:39 am
virtues. >> resume are your teachings and jogs. the eulogy is what they say after you are dead were you honest courageous. our society and a lot of the way we raise our kids put more emphasis on the resume virtues and that leaves us inarticulate. >> and are we teaching that in schools? >> i teach. i'm a professor. and my students know how to get jobs and internships but they're so hungry for the inner life. they don't have a vocabulary so the book is an attempt. i can show you people who've done it and i can give you a forum for your own life. >> heard people say think about the end of your life and what you would like for people to say about you at that time and dedicate yourself to reaching those virtues. >> you can write, the eulogy you want. there's gap between my desired
8:40 am
self, what i'd like to be. we're all stumbling along. >> you say it's okay to be flawed. >> it's okay because we are. >> david brooks. another fabulous book.

8:45 am
theaters. >> organized nerd singing. >> reporter: acapella had a bit of an image problem. >> it's pretty lame. >> excuse me? >> reporter: the success of that 2012 comedy as well as tv hits "glee" and "the sing-off," have made making music with your mouth mainstream. one of the top-selling albums of 2014 belongs to the group, a quintet with almost 8 million youtube followers and a grammy win. miles nuzzy is the president of the socal vocals a co-ed acapella frup at the university of california. nicky segal is one of its soloists. >> not to be mean but i imagine at one time in your life this wasn't the coolest thing to do.
8:46 am
>> we were just talking about it. >> that changed? >> i don't know what changed but in the last three or four years suddenly it became a cool thing to do and sort of a stereotype for acapellas, nerdy student kids. >> reporter: success helps. they've wot the international championship of co-leejal acapella or icca three times in the past decade. it's grown from 35 groups in 1996 to 300 this year. the championship is even the focus of a reality series called "sing it on." ♪ show me what your mama gave you ♪ >> reporter: it will premiere on pop-tv may 18th. at the semifinal, ten colleges competed for a chance to compete at the finals in new york. the competition is fierce. groups practice in the parking
8:47 am
lot. and memorize in front of the mirror. then they kill it on stage. that i would call the singers here tonight like equivalent to acapella olympians. there's really a deep emotional connection, too, that's happening as opposed to feel-good oldies. you don't see much of that snapping and clapping kind of song anymore. >> reporter: and this is much more than simply singing. the groups also arrange their music music, choreograph their performance s performances, and even provide the beats. ♪
8:48 am
