nancy reagan is being remembered for her fierce devotion to her husband and for her powerful influence as first lady. nancy and ronald reagan's more than half century partnership helped reshape american politics. she was a stylish and sometimes controversial first lady, and the popular president, most trusted adviser. >> reagan's daughter patti davis writes, quote, death always feels like a surprise just as when my father died. there is comfort in feeling surrounded by gentle thoughts and kind wishes and often sent out by strangers. >> nancy reagan died yesterday at 94 in los angeles at her home of congestive heart failure. >> thank you for your love and thank you for just being you. >> reporter: more than half of nancy reagan's 94 years were spent bed her beloved husband, president ronald reagan. >> the first lady of the united states, nancy davis reagan! >> reporter: elegant.

7:06 am
>> reporter: well, nancy. >> but -- no! no, i wasn't. >> reporter: no moment caught that partnership better than when nancy told her husband how to answer a reporter's question. >> doing everything we can. >> doing everything we can. >> reporter: at the president's 2004 funeral she emotionally kissed his casket and delivered his grave every year after at the ronald reagan presidential library. she, too, will be laid to rest along her husband. >> thank you for the bottom of my heart. >> reporter: at the 1996 republican convention, the first lady reflected on the unexpected life they led together. >> it was interesting, it was challenging, it was fascinating, it was sometimes frightening. there were times it seemed that the sun forgot to shine, but
7:07 am
those days have dimmed in comparison to the accomplishments that now glow brightly. >> arrangements are being made this morning to honor nancy reagan's life and to lay her to rest. mourners have been placing flowers and cards at the ronald reagan library in simi valley, california, where she will be buried. ben tracy is there right now. ben, good morning to you. >> reporter: gayle, good morning. of course, a somber morning here at the reagan presidential library. we are standing in the massive hangar that houses air force one, the plane that president and mrs. reagan used to travel the world while he was in office. and, you know, mrs. reagan has been so devoted to this presidential library as a way of safeguarding her husband's legacy. the folks here at the library tell me they have five board meetings every year and until her health failed, she had attended nearly every single one of them. as for the funeral details for the former first lady, those details are still being worked out but we are told the public will have a chance to pay their
7:08 am
respects to the former first lady before she is laid to rest here at the presidential library. she will actually be buried in the same spot right next to her husband president reagan where he was buried in 2004. that is a spot that the first lady picked out. it faces west on this hilltop up here in simi valley and remember that very moving ceremony back in 2004 when president reagan's body was brought back here and laid to rest just as the sun set in the west. he wanted to face west to face the pacific ocean and on a clear day, you can see it from this hilltop. >> beautiful. thank you, ben. flags at the united states capitol are flying at half-staff in honor of nancy reagan. president obama and first lady michelle obama paid tribute from the white house. they said our former first lady redefined her role in her time ear here. >> peggy noonan was a speech writer for president reagan and cbs news contributor and "wall street journal" columnist. with us is "60 minutes"

correspondent lesley stahl who covered the reagan white house. good morning. >> good morning. >> peggy, how much influence did chef? >> oh, she had plenty of influence. this was the ronald and nancy reagan were not only a great love affair and a great marriage, they were a great partnership. she looked out for him. she made sure he had time to think, time to do what he had to do and made sure people didn't take advantage of him. she also was someone who bluntly told her husband her views. she didn't try to be, you know, ragging away at him, but boy, on big things, she told him what she thought. >> you know she ragged away at him. you know that. >> no. i mean in an irritating way and knew nod to the that but when she had a bee on her bonnet, did she stay on the subject? yes, she did. >> she wrote in owner biography for eight years i slept with the president and if that doesn't give you special access, i don't know what does.
7:10 am
>> that is exactly it! >> such a great line. talk about the access and how she used it. she, in the second term, had a great deal of influence on foreign policy. >> you know, something? first ladies, generally, are not appreciated and celebrated. i don't mean for their influence but their ability to help hold the country together. presidents don't trust anybody except their wives. they are the people they go home to and bad things around. honestly, she was very powerful and not just in who she helped him select and in terms of the staff, but in terms of policy. >> but he clearly relied on her too. that clip was very telling when she says we are doing the best we can and then he repeats, we are doing -- he really relied on her -- >> more as the presidency went on and he began to falter a little bit. >> but he could not hear and there were times when she literally was the interpreter of the world in his ear.
7:11 am
>> i'm struck but how she wanted to make sure the right people were next to him. >> yes. if she didn't think someone around him was protecting his image, protecting -- protecting him as well, then she found a way -- to get them off the scene. >> if she thought a chief of staff was no longer useful? >> gone. >> he made a mistake. i think he hung up a phone on her when she was talking to him and that was sort of -- >> that was the end of it. >> that was the end. good-bye. >> she also felt he wasn't -- that he wasn't propping ronald reagan up in the way she thought he should have been. he was trying to take too much power for himself and letting it be known. >> there were some ego clashes too much. >> the iran controversy.
7:12 am
>> the great luke cannon, the great biographer to ronald page, next to peggy noonan and nancy pushed him to apologize. once he finally listened to her, he was not eager to do in the beginning. >> his numbers went up. >> his numbers bounced right back up. >> she had a better sense, i hate to say public rerelations. she had a better sense this wasn't working, we have to do this and i think he did and she covered that plank for him. >> you both really knew her. peggy, if you'll start us with this. can you tell us something about her that we didn't know that you feel comfortable sharing? >> yeah. i saw a great deal of her in the past ten years. i got in the habit of -- she was a very active member of the reagan foundation and reagan library boards. so, when we would go out there for a board meeting, i would see her and i got used to going to
7:13 am
her house and talking with her and this was -- she was so much fun. she was witty and amusing, rather sly in her observations. she was like a girl/girl. she loved gossip. >> nancy reagan gossiped? we all love gossip, peggy. >> it was never unkind and never judgmental. it was part of the history of humans. you know she loved gossip. she loved seeing who is seeing on who and who looks great and what did he do? i would save unfortunate stories for her and half the time she would say that is fabulous but the other half, he would go, i know that. >> you saw a funny side to her? >> i did. i only saw the image when i started covering the white house. they went on their first european trip and peggy was a very influential speech writer at that time writing for him. it was a triumph. it was a triumph. on the flight home, i was in the pool and we were invited back from an off-the-record sip of champagne and i saw a raucous
7:14 am
side of nancy reagan i never dreamed was in there. funny, hilarious. no holds barred. she was the one making the toast. i then went to try and interview her. i said to her, press secretary, we have to show the public this loose fun nancy reagan and they agreed. gave me an interview. the minute the camera went on, up went the mask. >> thank you very much. >> the public never saw it. >> good to see you. >> great to have both of you here. thank you. former secretary of state colin powell will be with us in our next hour as we remember nancy reagan. that is ahead. the men who want to be the next republican president are also honoring mrs. reagan. ted cruz tweeted she will be remembered for her deep passion for this nation and love for her husband. marco rubio called her a woman of incredible grace and strength. john kasich described her as a total class act. and donald trump tweeted that she was an amazing woman. major garrett in washington is tracking this year's republican campaign.
7:15 am
major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. history echo can be heard in the tributes to the reagan family. ronald reagan ran against the establishment not once but twice and backing barry goldwater in 1974 and running against gerald ford in 1976. so it is again with very different characters and hunting for new delegation and a new degeneration of the republican party. >> i need your represent. it's crunch time now. >> reporter: marco rubio swept puerto rico's primary a welcome victory after a super saturday rout. >> in the island of puerto rico i won 70% of that vote and the primary and the 23 delegates. >> reporter: the win near hours after donald trump advised rubio to quit. >> i think it's time he drops out. i would love to take on ted one-on-one. >> reporter: trump and ted cruz split saturday's contest and trump won narrowly in kentucky and louisiana and cruz swamped trump in kansas and maine. >> he should do well in maine because it's very close to canada. let's face it.
7:16 am
>> reporter: cruz captured a majority of the delegates at stake over the weekend and he now trails trump by just 81. >> we are seeing come together because they are recognizing that their candidates were not in a position to beat donald. >> reporter: on "face the nation," cruz said trump was losing momentum and protected he would overtake the front-runner, avoiding a fight at the party's convention. >> the bunch of washington dealmakers try to step in a brokered convention and steal the nomination? i think we will have a manifest uprising. >> reporter: trump defended himself as a unifier and stronger opponent for hillary clinton and again sought to clarify his position on hate groups like the ku klux klan. >> i don't like any group of hate. hate groups are not for me. but i've said this before. >> reporter: trump also argued for changing the law to allow for the use of extreme measures to interrogate terror suspects. >> we have to beat the savaging. >> reporter: by being savages? >> no, well, you have to play the game the way they are playing the game.
7:17 am
>> reporter: four contests loom tomorrow with michigan big prize and 59 delegates. a poll shows trump leading with 39% and cruz in second 24% and followed at some distance by rubio and john kasich. >> thank you, major. our battleground tracker shows hillary clinton leading bernie sanders by 11 points in michigan's democratic primary race. sanders won sunday's caucus vote in maine. he also topped the kansas and nebraska caucuses on saturday. hillary clinton won saturday's louisiana primary. she leads the delegate count 1,120 to 476 for bernie sanders. nancy cordes is in flint, michigan, where the candidates argued they are both to handle a crisis like the water problem in flint. >> reporter: -- >> it is raining lead in flint. >> people are not paying a water bill for poison water! >> reporter: clinton and sanders courted the hometown last night making big promises to an
7:18 am
audience that still can't drink its own water. >> i got a bill for a trillion dollars and create 13 million jobs and rebuilding flint, michigan, and helping communities all over the country. >> thank you, senator. >> we will commit within five years to remove lead from everywhere. >> reporter: when the debate turned to the economy and trade, sanders pounced. >> secretary clinton supported virtually every one of these disastrous trade agreements, written by corporate america. >> reporter: clinton argued it was sanders who abandoned michigan's workers at a critical time. >> i voted to save the auto industry. he voted against the money that ended up saving the auto industry. >> if you are talking about the wall street bailout, where some of your friends destroyed this economy -- >> you know -- >> excuse me. i'm talking. >> let him finish. >> reporter: it was one of a few pesky exchanges. >> the nra. >> can i finish, please. >> reporter: the attacks didn't
7:19 am
get personal, at least not the attacks on each other. >> we are, if elected president, going to invest a lot of money into mental health and when you watch these republican debates, you know why! >> reporter: clinton is going big on that line of attack about the auto bailout. she released a new radio ad this morning here and an approach that obama used effectively against romney in the general election in 2012 and winning in michigan despite the fact that mitt romney grew up here. >> the debates are never dull on either side. ahead, holly williams on the front lines outside of iraq's second largest city. >> isis is thought to have several thousand fighters in mosul. now they are stopping civilians from leaving the city and it means effectively that they have more than a million human shields. >> holly is in the middle of the william
