7:07 am
horrible day and looks like on the road to a 3 rs% loss. what happens in the two or three hours, remember the pepto-bis l pepto-bismol. we have no evidence of a slow down here, at least at this point. >> jill schlesinger, thank you so much. >> thank you. the presidential race heats up, vice president joe biden says he still thinks about what might have been. biden said on wednesday, i regret it every day when asked by an interviewer about his decision not to run. julianna goldman is in washington with more. >> reporter: the vice president did a round of interviews to talk about president obama's executive actions on gun control, but just months after announcing he wouldn't challenge hillary clinton for the democratic nomination, the vice president made clear it's still something he thinks about daily. >> i regretted every day, but i know it's the right decision for my family and for me. >> reporter: in an interview with hartford, connecticut,

7:09 am
o'donnell how he felt about it. >> some said, beau said dad, you got to run and there was this hollywood moment. nothing like that ever, ever happened. as a matter of fact, it was almost the opposite at that point. it was almost, dad, you got to stay strong, because the family is going looking to you, dad. >> reporter: biden made a point of praising bernie sanders and hillary clinton for debating the issues and not attacking each other personally and not so subtle dig at the republican candidates. and, gayle, he made clear that even if he is not running, biden is intent on staying relevant throughout this campaign. >> in the republican race, donald trump says that ted cruz should ask a judge if he can be president. this is the latest twist in trump's new challenge to the canadian-born texas senator. cruz is fighting back not to drive away the voters. major garrett is in pocahontas,

7:16 am
that were made by the north koreans that they had successfully conducted a test of a hydrogen bomb. we have determined that they conducted a nuclear test last night. >> reporter: u.s. aircraft flying out of japan will now test for radiation to determine exactly what type of device north korea exploded near the city of killju. a tight used for the past three nuclear tests. president obama continued a decades long policy of slapping sanctions on pyongyang. nothing has worked so far. the white house is still trying to figure out what to do and chinese official came here yesterday to consult. charlie, more financial sanctions are expected, but north korea is already the most severely sanctioned country in the world. >> margaret, thank you. the restaurant chain chipotle is promising to cooperate with an investigation

8:05 am
he is not a fan of ted cruz so he is happy in this case, you know, to pile on a little here. >> but, john, is there any evidence this will work and how does it work? >> here is the way it would work. there is no evidence there is a real burning question among conservatives about the citizenship requirements to the presidency. where these things work is if they are a stalking horse for some other set of concerns so people start to furrow their brow about this issue but ted cruz doesn't seem to have that problem among conservatives. if it were to grow into some bigger issue only because people would have some other concern they couldn't articulate outloud and use this as an excuse for it and he doesn't seem to have that problem. >> ted cruz is not gauging. he certainly is not taking the bait and making the jumping the shark reference. do you think this is a good strategy? >> he hasn't taken the bait on any of these needlings that donald trump has done. usually candidates have to respond, right?
8:06 am
you don't want to be defined by your opponent. that is kind of in the playbook but he has done the opposite and ted cruz has stayed away. it's very interesting. because if he were to engage and make this a big back and forth fight, there is the view, among some, that it actually gives weight to and people start to hear the attack, the underlying attack, even if it's being debunked and start to believe the underlying attack even when it's been debunked. for right now, he is just going to stay away from these fights. >> what is the latest we have, quickly, on momentum in iowa? because it's so -- >> cruz has the momentum because he's got, a, the support idea logically and a strong ground game. people say he is winning in a landslide but they are exciting set the expectation super high if he doesn't win in a landslide they will say, oh, well, poor ted cruz only won by ten points. >> john dickerson of "face the

know, how are we going to persevere? what do we do day-to-day and you just rely on instinct as an actor and all that stuff, all of that preparation, all of the things you thought about sort of dissolve away, and that is what this experience, i think, was for the entire cast, was, you know, a trust in -- within one another we are going to do something, you know, completely different sin mcinematically. >> everybody agrees he is a good arc. >> uh-huh. >> uh-huh. >> i don't know. gayle, you've seen the movie. >> i love this movie. loved it. i think he is going to win the oscar. he is very good good looking. that is part of the appeal but he is very good at what he does. he is also very smart. when you sit and talk to him about his acting and how he feels about the environment, something about him that is extremely likeable. you like good, smart, good looking guys who are talent. my prediction right now he is going to win the oscar this year, finally.
8:38 am
>> smart, good looking and talented. >> there is no downside. >> we can all wish, can't we? >> that's right. you can see more of my interview with leonardo dicaprio tonight on my pbs program. no winners last night powerball drawing. it now sets at $6 time is worth more than money. our dr. holly phillips is with us again. holly, good morning. >> good morning. >> they weren't setting $650 million in front of you. i think we would think that might alleviate some pain. >> make you very happy. >> i don't think it will dissuade anyone to play the next time. >> how do we value time and money affect our happiness? >> this is a really interesting study. right? so researchers did six separate studies on more than 4,000 people. some of them asked specific
8:39 am
questions like, would you choose an apartment that is more expensive but requires a longer commute to work? or an apartment that is less expensive with a very short commute to work? and they did all of these exercises to figure out who values their time more than money and who value their money more than time. now out of all of these people they looked at, about a 50/50 split. some valued time and some valued money. the people who valued their time most recorded the greatest amount of happiness. a small difference but still statistically significant. >> doesn't it matter where are you in life? when i was younger and given the choice between vacation or pay, i always took pay. now that you're older and a little bit more financially secure, if you asked me the same question, i would definitely take the vacation. >> absolutely. gayle, you really nailed it. what is interesting here is things like gender, income, marital status. those didn't seem to change whether or not you valued money or age. age did. older people were much more likely to save. they would choose time over
8:40 am
money. >> what is older, holly? >> but, gayle, what is interesting is this may change. millennials are more than ever demanding a better work life balance. >> that's good. >> they would choose happiness and they would choose flexible work hours even over talks of pay and money. >> i think you need to have a great thing that occupies your passion. at the same time, you need to have loving and supportive people around you. >> absolutely. charlie, one other things that they found here is people who value their time make choices around that. they choose jobs that may give them more flexible work hours but they also may at that time time to choose jobs that they love. so time spent on the job is also enjoyable time. >> are people becoming less materialistic? >> not necessarily. but there is a huge body of research which shows experiences bring us more happiness, longer lasting happiness, than material things.
8:41 am
counterintuitive. >> the experience of doing things. >> experience, right. spend your money on a vacation, it's a little counterintuitive. you spend your money on vacation after a week, it's over and done with. a couch will last longer but it doesn't bring you more happiness. >> go for the vacation rather than the new piece of furniture. >> i get it. i totally get it. thank you, dr. holly. snow lovers in the northeast, winter did not come soon enough. i'm don dahler. the warm weather has kept the ski industry on the east coast pretty much in hibernation. now that it's gotten colder, the business is going downhill -- in a good way! that is coming up on "cbs this morning"! >> look at that don dahler! skiing and talking at the same
