readiness to do the job. he was among about two dozen candidates, but no one in washington was surprised when she chose him. >> just remember, love trumps hate! >> reporter: shortly after finishing a rally in tampa, clinton made it official, saying she was thrilled to have picked tim kaine. on twitter, she called him a man who has devoted his life to fighting for others and that he believes no problem is unsolvable. kaine responded i'm honored to be her running mate. can't wait to hit the trail. kaine is a father of three who had served as mayor of richmond, virginia, as well as that state's lieutenant governor and governor. all when virginia was still considered a red state. >> the president does not have the legal power to maintain this war without congress. >> reporter: now on capitol hill, he sits on the senate armed services committee and the foreign relations committee and also served as the chair of the

7:07 am
it but now in social media you know it can still penetrate. >> she even tweeted it. >> she texted it as well which is a little bit of a throw backand tweets and facebook is what we have come to known and texting jumped back in there. >> he takes a lot of boxes for her and a senator in a battleground state and former governor and former mayor. on the left side of the party there is some disenchantment with this pick, right? >> not strong enough seem to derail it but he is not elizabeth warren or sherrod brown of ohio, but i think more than anything, you saw secretary clinton saying i want to choose someone i'm going to enjoy working with and if i get elected will not give me drama and not plotting. nobody wants "house of cards" here, right? >> you can hear himself saying i'm boring and know i'm the boring candidate. >> never a good sign. >> he is honest about someone saying i understand how people might perceive me. >> or may be a relief in this political year! >> very much so. from her vantage point you look

7:09 am
convention from melania's earlier flub to the ted cruz kind of rudest moment to what happened. you enjoyed that? >> yes. >> it wasn't the best, but you know what? if you look at the polls you got enough of a legality of a bump and a number of polls show he is polling close including places like ohio and i think that was helpful there. i was talking to karl rove last night. you know i'm spending time with him. he wondered outloud whether he needed a little bit more of a reaganesque hopeful optimistic message and whether or not you'll see some of that from trump in the last 110 days or so. >> carlos watson, thank you for being with us. cbs news will bring you coverage of the democratic national convention. we will be live from the convention hall in philadelphia this week and prime time coverage of the big speeches monday through thursday and streaming network have full gavel to gavel coverage starting on monday.
7:10 am
trump will visit scranton, pennsylvania, on wednesday. on friday, trump lashed out at ted cruz, his former opponent for the republican nomination. cruz was booed during his convention speech when he refused to endorse trump. >> there wasn't one person in the room, including the texas delegation, right? honestly, he may have ruined his political career. i feel so bad for him. i feel so bad for him. >> after not mentioning cruz during his acceptance speech on thursday, trump said cruz will eventually endorse him. much of donald trump's acceptance speech focused on the security threats facing the united states and in an interview with "face the nation" host john dickerson, president obama said despite those threats, americans will be divided if they sacrifice their values. >> if we start engaging in the kinds of proposals that we have heard from mr. trump or some of his surrogates like mr. gingrich
7:11 am
where we start suggesting that we would apply religious tests to who could come in here, that we are screening muslim-americans differently than we would others, then we are betraying that very thing that makes america exemption. >> exceptional. you can see more of that interview on "face the nation" here on cbs tomorrow morning. a story continued to develop overnight. officials in germany are trying to determine a motive for the deadly shooting ram page in munich. a teenage gunman opened fire at a crowded shopping mall on friday and killing nine people and some of them children before turning the gun on himself. more than a dozen people were injured in what marks the third most violent attack over europe the past eight days. seth doane is in munich with the latest. >> reporter: we know the shooter was an 18-year-old german-iranian man who grew up in munich and did not have a
7:12 am
criminal record and police have not found any ties to any terrorist groups, including isis. it was said, though, that he was getting psychological help. an eyewitness caught the moment the shooter opened fire outside of munich mcdonald's sending people fleeing. not known why the 18-year-old gunman started firing but, at this point, police believe he was acting alone. the german-iranian man was heard yelling from the roof of a parking lot, i am german. first, i thought someone had thrown firecrackers this neighbor said and i look down and see suddenly someone who shoots into the crowd. 2,900 police aacross germany and austria responded and munich in lockdown as hospital prepared for victims. >> we got one with of the most critical injured patients. >> reporter: this doctor is the head of the trauma department at
7:13 am
reichs hospital. >> the bleeding was not a problem in this case. traumatic brain injury was the problem because there were several bullets right into the brain. >> reporter: his patient did not survive. the death toll stand at nine victims. today, police raids are taking place in the search for clues. the shooting follows a separate incident here in germany on monday when a 17-year-old afghan asylum seeker wounded five people on a train with a knife and islamic group claimed responsibility for that attack. the gunman killed himself and was found dead just about less than a mile from the scene where we are standing here. he had a backpack filled with ammunition. it is believed that he was obsessed with paying attention to different mass shootings but, anthony, so snot known to have any political affiliation. >> seth doane in munich, germany, thank you. the shooting in munich book
7:14 am
end a few violent weeks at home and abroad. let's turn to ron hosko, a former director of the fbi. is there anything more we can be doing to stop attacks on soft targets like this, ron? >> well, look. we expect a lot out of our law enforcement and our intelligence communities. but this is very much a shared responsibility so part of that expectation goes back toward all of us, the citizen, the family member, the friend, the coworker, to look for warning signs. without that, law enforcement will fail because there is no way they are going to catch every incident like this. >> at this point, it still hasn't been determined if this was circumstances sisis or anot. you have to wonder does that matter at this point? >> no, i don't think it does. we, of course -- of course, it's going to matter if somebody is inspired by isis. here, we heard initial reports of this -- the multiple shooters, of somebody yelling
7:15 am
allah akhbar. these incidents are more complex. we have seen it domestically here where mental illness seems to play a large role. here in this case, it takes me back to newtown with adam lanza who was collecting for decades lists of mass shooting events. >> ron, how do we adjust to this or how has u.s. law enforcement been adjusting to this kind of incident or can they? >> they are learning from each and every one of these incidents. they share intelligence broadly and one of the things they have learned is not to unduly alarm the public when they don't have sufficient information to focus in a particular area. so the intent is not to raise fear but to raise awareness so that people are attentive and they are thinking about what their options are, if a mass shooter or active shooter event happens involving them. run, hide, fight.
7:16 am
those words. training for active shooters. but we cannot be everywhere at every time, and prevent each and every one of these incidents in a land of soft targets. >> ron hosko in washington this morning, thank you. hundreds of people north of los angeles were forced to flee their homes as a fast moving wildfire burns out of control in nearby santa clarita. the fire began on fire fueled by tinder dry conditions and gusty winds and temperatures near 100. as many as 3,400th acres have dabbling been damaged. with all but two states under oppressive heat in the united states. a dome of high heat and humidity has baked the center of the nation for days, it moved east. it's expected to bring dangerous conditions to the mid-atlantic and the northeast today. errol barnett is in steamy washington with the latest.

7:31 am
it has to be in a locked, hard-surface gun case and you have to tell the airline you're doing it. as far as bringing a gun into the cabin or carry-on bags, you can't do it. >> i want to naively believe these are people who forgot they were in their bags and not people who thought i want them in a carry-on bag. are there security points that are more offenders than others? >> there are. the top five airports for these are consistently the top five every year. what is alarming is the numbers continue to grow every year. so atlanta, dallas, houston, denver, phoenix. those are typically your top five. sometimes they move around a little bit inside the top five but what is interesting when you look at this year, for the first six months of this year, numbers were just up on the screen, everyone but denver is pacing ahead of where they were for last year. so rather substantially so. across the board about 11.5% as far as guns being discovered at checkpoints. >> what type of weapons are they finding? >> it's not just guns. typically, it's a pistol. that is a pistol that fires
7:32 am
shotgun round. but it's also you'll see things like axes and people will bring knives and large shells. you can't do it. so there is a novelty hand grenade and another thing that will stop the security. >> having brought on contraband in the past they give you an option to mail it to yourself. if you're caught with a gun, what happens to the actual gun? is it state-by-state? >> they will see it in the x-ray machine if you bring a gun to the airport. that is stopping that line. that line will stop. the bag that weapon is in will stay in the x-ray machine and police are called. up to the local law enforcement how they handle that. some states you're arrested immediate but and you can says criminal charges and the tsa has the right to go after you for civil penalties, that is a fine. and not to mention you're detained and delayed and
7:33 am
detained by the police and security line has to stop and other people behind you have to filter in other lines. >> and they will be aggravated with you. not like you bring on a bottle of water. >> let's say you have another kind of prohibited item. you will be given the option, let's say you had that hand grenade we showed there. still result in the police being called out there but it's not illegal to possess so they will tell you have a right to vend it to us or -- surrender it to us or take it back to your car or put it in your checked luggage under most circumstances. but that is still going to slow you down certainly. >> it seems like this and a series of other problems have led to a lot of long lines. this summer every time i've traveled i've budgeted in an extra hour. is the tsa seeing all of these things and numbers increase for people bringing in guns to shut down the lines. are they doing anything to make the line shorter is? >> you see an increase in number of flyers this year as opposed
7:34 am
to last year and in may the same time they are dealing with a staffage shortage and focusing more on the screening process you had a bunch more people and that backed up the lines. what we are starting to see is tsa rolling new technology that is coming first to atlanta and then miami and l.a.x. and other places they hope to speed up the line as well as the increased staffing and things will be reported on pretty extensively. these lanes are interesting and allow up to five people at a time to access the lines at bins and put their stuff in and if one person is moving slow they move the bins around and the line is still moving if the person brought 75 items they need to take off and their jackets and boots and everything else they can't stop the line. >> anything they can do would be a help. thank you. a whole new approach is coming up to avoid fines for parking tickets. an artificial intelligence that offers legal advice. it was invented by a teenager.

7:40 am
critically ill patients. >> jon, what are you hearing from health officials now? >> every single health official i've spoken to is extremely concerned, especially since five months have gone by who congress asked by president obama to pass the funding to help study this. i spoke to a dr. merishaw where houston is. it's not buying traps for mosquitoes. they have ordered those. when they come they need the money to hiring the personnel and pick up the traps and need the lab stuff and they need the ability to prepare, for example, broken screens in neighborhoods that have that, because that is a setup for having mosquitoes spread. a simple thing like mosquito repellant and they don't have enough money to fund to that. >> we are behind the 8 ball on this and i don't understand what the hold up is but we need the

and politics merging. but also the staff at "george" kind of closed ranks around him and we were very protective around him. i think when he came to the office, it was the one place he could let it go and be himself. >> how did you meet? >> i was working for his partner michael berman as a pr firm and john took over my office and i wasn't very happy about it. i let him know it and i think he kind of got a kick out of it. >> derik, the snippet we played is so perfect because there is this wonderful intimate tied you might not know about him. how did you get the roommates and coworkers and friends to talk about him? >> it's interesting, vinitvinit that is what we wanted to do. we felt everybody knew jfk jr. but didn't really know him. the mission was to go out and put together a cast that could tell us these incredibly passionate and intimate stories. the process was that we started to reach out to folks.
8:33 am
fortunately, one of the first people we reached out to was rosemarie and once we kind of passed a litmus test and she understood we wanted to create this inspiring film on this fallen hero, that she then stepped in and helped us and we put together an amazing cast. truly, this film is really successful because this cast really shares, they really cared about this man and it's a beautiful portrait. >> you didn't speak to any kennedy's for this film. you stuck with close friends. >> it's interesting. we started looking a lot wider originally. once we put the friend in place and get these true passionate moments and stories, we followed through with that momentum. we wanted something that was very visceral and very in the moment as opposed to something that might be more of sort of the, you know, what you might say is the political perspective of jfk jr., sort of this is who with he was to the kennedy's is we wanted to get deeper into his personal story. >> rosemarie, how did he handle
8:34 am
all of that constant attention? you were with him so many of those times when cameras are swarming him and it's like a paparazzi around him all the time. >> i think he managed to maintain a lot of privacy. he lived his life a certain way and but john was famous from the day he was born. so that wasn't strange to him. that was normal to him and that was something that he didn't see as a burden. he saw it as a privilege, as an opportunity, as a way to, you know, do things that were great and have people pay attention to that. >> he didn't shy away from talking about his childhood. >> no. he would bring it up a as we all do in passing but wasn't something we sat down and discussed as a historical, you know, event. he was just very regular, the way we all talk about our parents and our childhood and our siblings, and that was really something amazing about him. >> he was, toward the end of his life, it looked like he was preparing himself for politics. do you think that was inevitable?
8:35 am
>> i think it was discussed and i think he would have eventually -- i think he wanted to make "george" magazine a success first. john was not conscious i'm running on my name but when he did, i think he would have run for governor. >> governor of new york? >> yes. >> rosemarie and derik, thank you both so much.
