7:01 am
it is not a great shock to me. i think no question the dnc was supporting hillary clinton. >> debbie wasserman schultz ousted from the dnc. >> chaos over yet another e-mail skaj scandal. then the clinton people say this is the fault of russians. this is above my pay grade. >> i feel a hillary standard and a standard for everybody else. >> what is the hillary standard? >> a lot of unaccurate mean spirited attacks with no basis in truth. >> i genuinely believe there has never been a candidate better prepared for the presidency than hillary clinton. >> not eisenhower? not george walker bush? >> i said more. i didn't satisfy they were chopped liver. >> firefighters dealing with triple-digit temperatures as they battle a huge wildfire in southern california. >> one person is dead after an
7:02 am
explosive device went out in germany. the attacker was a syrian who had been denied asylum. >> a deadly shooting at a club in ft. myers. people say several people were shot in a parking lot just after midnight. >> all that. >> no price could be put on the experience of playing in new york. actually, queens. >> the national baseball hall of fame class of 2016. >> i stand up here humbled and overwhelmed. >> and all that matters. >> i just want to do everything i can to make sure we win and be the presidency of hillary clinton is fantastic and i think i can put my two cents in. >> i might add he can player a great harmonica. >> he seems pretty dull. >> he plays the harmonica. ♪ >> that is a performance! an insurance firm in milled management turn to an assistant
7:03 am
and say, let's not do the talent show next year. announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." we are at the national constitutional center in philadelphia. the presidential campaign is tied as the democratic national convention gets under way. a cbs news poll out this morning shows hillary clinton and donald trump both have 42% support. it is one of the first national polls since the republican convention. >> the democrats will meet under the cloud of a new e-mail controversy. wiki leaks showing top party official expressing frustration with bernie sanders' president shaun campaign. >> that led debbie wasserman schultz to announce she will step down after the convention.
7:04 am
she spent 20 minutes yesterday in the wells fargo center where the convention starts this afternoon. nancy cordes is overlooking the convention floor right now. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the goal of this convention was to show that democrats were more unified and more positive than republicans were last week. but the leak of these dnc e-mails has complicated that. democrats are moving to try to contain the damage starting with the departure of the dnc chair. >> are we ready to keep florida blue? >> reporter: the sudden resignation of wasserman schultz came 24 hours after she introduced clinton and kaine in miami. one of the hacked e-mails from earlier this year, she quipped that senator bernie sanders isn't going to be president. in another, she referred to his campaign manager as a damn liar. in a separate conversation, the dnc's chief financial officer questioned sander' faith. he had skated on saying he had a jewish heritage. i think i read he is an atheist.
7:05 am
>> the dnc were not running a fair operation and they were supporting secretary clinton. >> reporter: in their first joint interview on sunday's "60 minutes," the just democratic ticket was asked about those party e-mails. >> they seem to have the thumb out. they seem to be working against bernie sanders, their fellow democrat. >> again, i don't know anything -- i don't know anything about -- about these e-mails. i haven't followed it. but i'm very proud of the campaign that i ran and i'm very proud of the campaign that senator sander ran. >> reporter: clinton's running mate is a former dnc chair himself. >> i don't see an effort to put a thumb on the scale to tip this one way or another. i think the vigorous and positive nature of the campaign is proof that, you know, these are public servants who were in it for the right reason and i think we are going to be unified going forward. >> reporter: wasserman schultz's relationship with the sander'
7:06 am
camp was strained before her e-mails were hacked. she said he didn't do enough to discourage supporters from disrupting the nevada convention in may. >> to suggest that our campaign has anything to do with creating violence is an outrage a and unacceptable. >> i'm not doing anything to discourage the senator from continuing his campaign. >> reporter: sanders is scheduled to address the national convention tonight. another reason party officials are trying to smooth this over quickly. though, he seemed to question clinton's choice of running mate on sunday too. >> he is a very nice guy. his political views are not political views. he is more conservative than i am. what i have preferred to see somebody like an elizabeth warren selected by secretary clinton? yes, i would have. >> reporter: ironically, it was warren and not sander who was given a plum speaking spot in the 10:00 p.m. hour tonight and that has caused some internal friction. the sanders' camp pointing out
7:07 am
he is the one who garnered 13 million votes. this morning, we are told the schedule could be in a bit of flux. >> all right, nancy. intrigue continues. thank you so much. the clinton campaign is backing cybersecurity expert who say russia likely stole the e-mails and gave them to wiki leaks. hillary clinton campaign manager accuses the russian government of trying to help donald trump's campaign. trump officials reject that idea. julianna goldman is outside the wells fargo center how this domestic hacking story has turned international. >> reporter: the clinton campaign has tried to connect donald trump to vladimir putin before. but now they are accusing the kremlin of directly trying to meddle in this election. >> it's pure speculation on the part of the clinton campaign. >> reporter: paul manafort denied accusation that donald trump is being aided by an old cold war rival. >> it's absurd. you know, no base to it. >> experts are telling us that
7:08 am
russian state actors broke into the dnc. >> reporter: the clinton campaign said russia is trying to influence the election. >> other experts are now saying that the russians are releasing these e-mails for the purpose of actually helping donald trump. >> reporter: the new allegations follow a june report from the dnc hired independent security firm crowd strike which claimed the party's e-mail system had been breached by russian hackers. a hacker by the name of guchofer 2.0. >> wouldn't it be nice if we actually got along with russia? >> reporter: trump and his campaign have thot not tried to distance the presidential candidate from vladimir putin. in june, putin praised trump during a press conference in st. petersburg.
7:09 am
donald trump jr. argued the accusations reveal a ruthless side to the clinton campaign. >> it just goes to show you their exact moral compass. they will say anything to win this. this is time and time again, lie after lie. >> reporter: this morning the kremlin was asked about these accusations and it declined to comment. last week, trump told "the new york times" if russia were to attack a nato ally, he would only come to that country's defense if they met certain conditions, like meeting their financial obligations. >> thank you, julianna. the republican nominee and his team will not say quiet during this democratic convention. the latest cbs news poll shows 83% of the people who watched the gop convention have a more favorable view of donald trump. 69% say they have a more positive view of the party in general. looking to build momentum, trump tweeted about the democrats saying this. e-mails say the rigged system is alive and well. major garrett is here with the
7:10 am
trump campaign's tactics. >> reporter: good morning. on the heels of what many, certainly not donald trump, called a rocky republican national convention, trump's team and the national party pounced on the e-mail scandal saying it helps what they thought all along. the system is rigged and sometimes it's rigged in hillary clinton's favor. >> our mission is to expose long and scandalous history of hillary and bill clinton right here and the democrats own backyard. >> reporter: this is donald trump being conventional sending party leaders to bash the democratic nominee. it's old hat, but with a new twist. hillary clinton is now tangled in another e-mail mess. >> hillary clinton is the epitome of the establishment. donald trump is the outsider who is committed to change. >> reporter: the heart of trump's general election strategy? portray clinton as a washington insider whose ethics make sense there but nowhere else. >> our convention occurs at a moment of crisis.
7:11 am
>> reporter: trump saying the convention speech depicting an american menaced by threats at home and overseas lift paul manafort defending his perspective. >> donald trump explained clearly to the american people he wasn't going to sugar coat it. >> reporter: trump told senior cbs news contributor ted koppel it's not all that different from reality television. >> my whole life has been winning. i won, whether i did the "apprentice." and went on television. >> you can't compare anything you've done before. >> tremendous success in business. tremendous success with -- i go into television, i do a show, it's a big success. i wrote books, they are very successful. >> there is nothing like running president of the united states. >> i agree. i agree. there is nothing like it. >> reporter: trump today head to roanoke, virginia, and winston-salem, north carolina.
7:12 am
his anemic bounce in our cbs poll with the republic national convention. recently polls this morning show trump with as much as as a six-point presidential bounce. >> the president tells cbs news trump's statements that the u.s. might not stand with nato allies shows a lack of readiness on foreign policy. mr. obama gave a wide ranging interview to "face the nation" moderator and cbs news political director john dickerson and he is here with us in philadelphia. >> good morning. >> talk about the dnc and sanders thing. there is a possibility for a real dissention here that could affect this convention and the campaign? >> yeah. well, i think, you know, there is dissention and unhappiness with hillary clinton and now the dirty laundry has been put on the front lawn before the convention started. so the move that seems with debbie wasserman schultz will calm things down a little but the dissention is still there and now it's up to basically bernie sanders who could assist
7:13 am
by saying the party is moving on but we will have to see how it plays out. >> will they get the dissention of public stage when debbie wasserman schultz addresses the convention and will bernie sanders' supporters boo her? >> you don't want a booing moment like ted cruz at the republic national convention. it's all of the rage this convention. >> and booing back. >> we will have none of that on this show. ted cruz was doing his thing and donald trump, yes, he was booed and off there. this is the systemic assistance of hillary clinton by the dnc which bernie sander and his supporters are complaining about. >> the release of the e-mails the day before the convention seems svery suspicious and the clinton campaign is blaming the russians. does that make any sense to you? >> as a political tactic? they have been trying to hang -- you know, donald trump has an
7:14 am
affection for putin they have been highlighting for weeks. so this is just the latest in that. i don't know whether there is any actual evidence of this, but it seems infitting with a tactic they have been going with for a while. >> your interview with president obama, i mean, he went out of his way to praise president george w. bush as one of the most underrated presidents we have had and called george h.w. bush one of the best presidents we have had. hillary clinton being complimenta complimentary. a reach across the aisle? >> absolutely. and they think that was all about negativity and no question of togetherness and tim kaine also praised speaker ryan. so they have all got their favorite republicans now and it's an attempt to show a kind of cooperation as -- because they think voters want that but also in opposition what they heard from the republicans. >> you get the impression the president is raring to go. he really wants to get out there and make the case because he is offended by what some of the republicans are saying.
7:15 am
>> well, there are two reasons. one, donald trump was the chief birther in america who have you gone suggested the president was not a legitimate president because he was not born in america. that is personal. second, the president believes in the policies he put forward and thinks hillary clinton is the best one to protect those. he also thinks there is a detox about passing the baton. he wants the race to go forward and building on what he has done and not protecting what he has done and building on it and hillary clinton is the best -- >> he can make a difference? >> he can, particular in the african-american community. he used to say you got to have my back. i've had your back and you got to have my back. running against the person who wondered if he was legitimate and a lot of african-americans think it's a claim about race and i think he'll go to them to say you need my back again to continue the legacy. >> thanks, john. cbs news will bring you special coverage from the convention tonight at 10:00/9:00 central and nonstop coverage all day on cbsn. a shooting outside of a florida nightclub overnight
7:16 am
killed two people and 17 shot. police say the shooting took place in the parking lot of club blu in ft. myers. three people are in custody. the hospital say the victims' ages ranged from 12 to 27. wildfires are closing in on several california neighborhoods this morning and forcing thousands to evacuate. the sand fire covers ruffle 50 square miles. it has destroyed at least 18 buildings since friday and now it threatens about 1,500 homes. that fire in valley in california. mireya villarreal is here with more. >> reporter: basically, all of the vegetation around the fire is drought stricken the last five years. that means as the fires and the flames start to hit this vegetation, it goes up in a matter of second. you add wind gusts to that what
7:17 am
you see behind me is what happened. basically, this goes up extremely fast. the hot spots are extremely hot. making it difficult for fire crews to put this thing out. the sand fire is just 10% campaign contained right now and temperatures expected to hit a hundred degrees today this is a hazardous condition for the crews. >> reporter: destructive fast moving flames have gained new ground, two days after exploding north of los angeles. strong wind gusts and nearly triple digit temperatures propelled the claims through canyons parched from years of drought. >> that fire came through like a freight train. >> reporter: as the fire surged toward a string of small communities late sunday, crews dropped retardant and water from above while firefighters on the ground set up to protect people's homes. the fire has already destroyed more than a dozen structures. >> this is the fifth year of an ongoing drought. so we have very extreme fire behavior. i recognize for some of our citizens, they have seen fires
7:18 am
before, but these are not normal times. >> reporter: investigators discovered a man's body in this burned-out car. his death remains under investigation, but firefighters say it's a reminder that homeowners need to be prepared to leave at a moment's notice. >> unfortunately, we lost one life. our priorities as firefighters is we never want to lose lives. we feel that that is preventible. when the law enforcement say evacuate, that means evacuate. >> reporter: but cliff loss said he stayed to protect his home. >> i have not been in anything this close before. >> reporter: it was that close? >> yeah. >> reporter: why did you stay, cliff? >> well, you know, you work so hard on a piece of property. but i knew i could -- i could get out. i knew i could get out when i needed to. >> reporter: right now, there are just 1,500 homes or well over 1,500 homes still under evacuation order right now. the reason for that, a perfect
7:19 am
example a few miles from where we are standing right now, a famous hollywood production company, they are not far from here. the owners tried to defend their land, defend their business with water hoses. the fire took that place and ripped through it and tore down a bunch of the sets and kept on going. just shows you how destructive this fire can be and will be. charlie? >> thanks, maria. very scary pictures. >> looks like something out of a hollywood movie that is still going on behind her. a scorching heat wave across much of the country shows no signs of letting up. searing temperatures today stretch from the central plains to the mid-atlantic region. the heat index will make it feel like 109. in washington, d.c., 105 and dallas and 104 in nashville. a severe storm in chicago. >> russia might not be shut out of the upcoming rio olympics. coming up, the controversial decision that might a

7:33 am
only joint interview. here is a look, including portions you did not see last night. clinton describes the planned role for her vice president. >> in addition to being such a close confidant and adviser to the president, somebody who may be the last person in the room before a difficult decision is made, i would very much count on tim to be working with congress on some of our highest priorities, taking on responsibilities for projects that we think would really help people make us more economically prosperous, create more opportunity in jobs. >> senator, you're going to be vice president in a white house with two presidents. >> i mean, it's an embarrassment of riches. >> reporter: what do you think of that notion? >> i think it's an all hand-on deck time. >> yes. >> in addition to my husband, tim's wonderful wife anne, comes with experience of being a
7:34 am
judge. she is the current education commissioner of the commonwealth of virginia. so i intend to have everybody working. it's not going to be just me and my vice president. >> i've spent time with hillary and the president and chelsea and it's going to be great because i tell you president clinton is an engaging person about anything. >> when we wrote that question, i expected you to come up out of the your chair at me and tell me there was only going to be one president. >> well, no. because i will be the president, but it does happen to be a historical fact that my husband served as president for eight years. and there is a lot that happened which helped the american people during those eight years. i want an economy that creates more jobs. >> senator, are you ready to be president of the united states? >> i think i'm ready to lead. i'm ready, first, to be a supportive vice president so that the presidency of hillary
7:35 am
clinton is a fantastic one. but if something were to put that in my path, as much as any human being would be ready, i'd be ready. >> scott pelley is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> this was fascinating because it's the first time we have seen the two of them together and take those questions. first of all, hillary clinton answering that question is essentially saying, you're getting two for the price of one again. >> that's right. i was very surprised by that. i expected her to say, no, no, i'm going to be president. and, no, she said i want bill clinton on board, i want barack obama on board, as she has put in the interview, it's all hand on deck. >> what is interesting, he was barack obama's favorite senator. obama liked him a lot. >> he was almost obama's pick for vice president. >> now they seem to have come together with, like, perfect chemistry. >> well, that's true. the fascinating thing, they look terrific in the interview together. they were finishing each other's sentences but they don't know each other well. and i was surprised by that. they have known each other
7:36 am
professional and casually. but they came across in the interview as two old friends and that is really not the case. they are just getting to know each other. >> we know there is no way to you can't script chemistry. you have it or you don't. i was surprised to hear they haven't known each other long because they were very at ease each other. did you find him boring? i think some people say he needs to stop saying i'm boring. >> yes, he does. that is inaccurate. >> he plays the harmonica. >> he carries a number of of them wherever he goes but didn't play the harmonica for us. boring? sno. he was city kouns sicouncilman r and governor and senator. >> has he put to rest any liberals or the left of the democratic party might have objected to him? >> people object to him on the
7:37 am
far left, charlie, as you know, because he has been in favor of free trade. >> right. >> in favor of the transpacific partnership. now hillary clinton has said that she does not favor free trade to the extent that she used to or the transpacific partnership in particular. so they were on opposite sides of that issue. liberals don't like that. but it's amazing how immediately after they hang up the phone, a vice president's views on issues come completely in line. >> one specific part of your interview that is drawing interest this morning is that her answer to the dnc e-mail scandal. she acted like she was not familiar with what was going on. >> she had never heard of it, if i'm any reader of body language, i've known secretary clinton for 25 years, and i was struck as i was reading the e-mails to her in the interview, her eyes widened as if to say, what is this about? what are you talking about? she seemed genuinely surprised.
7:38 am
>> how could that be? >> the story had only broken a couple of hours before. >> because you interviewed on saturday? >> we interviewed on saturday. she had been on stage introducing tim kaine to the other 49 states that don't know him. and i think they missed that stitch in terms of briefing her. she seemed very surprised. >> people could say she might not have known the story was going to break but i think it defies for many that she didn't know anything at all about the e-mails. i think that is the issue. >> well, the man who wrote the e-mail about bernie sanders' religion, the finance chairman of the dnc, has been finance chairman of the dnc since 1992. he's a very well-known figure to the clinton's. i don't know how much she knew, but she was very surprised to hear the e-mails were out. >> what is interesting too is russian involvement as to whether the russians hacked -- >> the democrats are saying the russians hacked the e-mails and released them the day before the convention started to affect
7:39 am
u.s. politics. >> thanks, scott. >> scott, thanks so much. >> wonderful to be with you. >> thank you for getting up early. wonderful to be with you. >> always a pleasure to be with you. >> i know you're going to have more tonight on the "cbs evening news" from here in philadelphia and throughout the convention. we will join scott for our special prime time coverage tonight at 10:00/9:00 central on cbs. many russian athletes still have a path to compete in the rio olympics despite state sponsored doping. ahead, the decision by the international olympic committee not to ban russia from the games. if you're head outiing out door, take us with you with the cbs news app. we will be right back.

race and social justice. she realizes what she has to say carries great weight and means a lot to the people who are hearing it. and she's not shying away from that. >> reporter: throughout the obama presidency, michelle obama's approval ratings have consistently than higher than her husband's. charlie, right now, his are hovering around 50% while hers have been around 66% over the last few years. >> wow. thanks, julianna. >> can't wait to read her book, whenever that comes out. a story to tell. new jersey senator cory booker will also speak at the convention tonight. he was vetted as a possible running mate to hillary clinton and we spoke to him earlier this morning. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with the dnc. does the dnc owe senator sander and apology? >> i think that, right now, i want to move forward. i'm not sure. i haven't sifted through all of these leaks that came out, but, clearly, debbie wasserman
8:36 am
schultz did the right thing and announced she is going to leave the dnc. i think something bernie sanders has been asking for sometime and i think that is in the right direction. this has to be a convention where we come together and i was not working with them and advocating for my candidate. i think hillary clinton has run the right kind of race and the two of them have met and come together and endorsed and we need to unify as a party tonight. >> should she still participate in the ceremony considering the cloud that is over her head? >> i hope she will dispel the cloud saying she is going to resign. i think it's big of her to get out of the way and i think really what this convention is going to be about is not that. it's going to be about really bringing our party together and unifying around secretary clinton. >> if unifying is the goal, then why have congresswoman schultz addressed this convention? she is likely going to be booed by sanders' supporters. that's not a sign of unity. >> no, it's not, especially if
8:37 am
that is what happens. again, for me, i'm focused tonight. i got a speech to give and my focus is going to be talking about the unity, not of a party but really the unity of our country and the importance of us as a nation to come together. >> you speak before the first lady, michelle obama. >> yes, yes. >> how will she be a character witness for hillary clinton? >> i think both obama's are going to have such a story to tell because they have worked with secretary clinton in an intimate way and seen her behind the door and seen the services she has reneded and i think you can can get no better character witness right now than the first lady who i think is one of the most popular people in the united states of america. >> a new poll showing a bump for the republicans and donald trump leading hillary clinton. what do you have to do, other than show unity? >> well, i think the number one, we have to show a contrast. we had a very dark convention that showed a very negative view of america here as a qun that is on the rise, especially compared to our european ally and the
8:38 am
rest of the globe. we have our challenges and we are not that. somebody who has frankly not only at the convention reflected it but frankly who has been tearing down america and been insulting you name it. disabilities for americans and we don't need to degrade people but elevate our society. >> clinton takes command of a changed party. this party is more liberal than the democratic party of bill clinton. >> i don't know if i want to look at it at liberal conservatism. we are a party who believes if you work a full-time job you should not be living in poverty. we should be investing in this nation whether it's infrastructure or investing in jobs and in education. if you look at the principles of our party, the principles resonate with the american people who are struggling right now and need a party to speak to their need. >> let's talk about tim kaine
8:39 am
who has now been named the vp. it was rumored you were on the short list. have you recovered from that? are you okay? >> were you in the fetal position last night? >> and what did you say? >> gayle king, if she had teased me like that, like only a friend can. i actually rejoice in tim kaine. >> no. but he describes himself as boring. i wonder if that is a good look. smsh said he is not the most exciting person in the world but has extraordinary depth about politics and humanity. i know you're friends with him. >> let me say right now -- >> is that cory? >> i am so excited about this pick because he is a man of such honor and a goodness that is core. that is matched with competency. a lot of talkers in the senate and i've seen us in caucus meetings and nobody looks up from their blackberry. when he looks up, people look up
8:40 am
and lean forward. >> no question about her choice? >> the beautiful thing about it. if you ask republicans and democrats to say the top ten people in the senate who are qualified to be president of the united states, he would get the most votes. he would be one of the people that got the most admiration from both sides of the aisle. >> senator booker, thank you for coming. >> thank you for having me. >> senator kaine also plays the harmonica. not everybody can do that. alexander hamilton is not just a hit on broadway. >> first, i want to see hamilton because he is the rap star and then they want to see ben franklin and sit on his lap. >> they do. they sit right here. >> go for it. absolutely. you can do it. >> get in there, jan. coming up next, jan crawford gets unique insight on our found

the national constitution center here in philadelphia is our home for the next three days. we are close to independence hall where the founders debated and eventually signed the constitution. jan crawford looks at how the center shares that story and the evolution of our government. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, gayle. i mean, just think about it. i mean, this was a time centuries ago when the rest of the world was governed by kings and emperors but our founders had this radical idea.
8:45 am
they would create a government by the people with a constitution that endures and protects us to this day. throughout our history, it is protests that bring change. a revolutionary ideal protected by the constitution. >> what do we want? equality. >> the fact that we, americans, have the obligation and empowered to say the government is encroaching on our rights is a sign of health and robustness of our constitution. >> reporter: it survived and thrived for 229 years. forged over a tense summer in 1787. the greatest document of human freedom ever created. and the national constitution center in the heart of philadelhia is where we come tond. right there, independence hall. >> it's so inspiring. >> reporter: jeff rosen is the center's president and ceo. >> just as anthony kennedy was here recently and he said, there
8:46 am
at independence hall is where the constitution was ratified and the national constitution center on the other side of the mall is where americans, today, work out what it means today. >> reporter: created by congress as a nonpartisan institution, the center teaches and inspires. in this polarized time, it reminds us of our nation's past struggles and what always guided us, bringing us back together, the constitution. >> what is going on now is the incredible debates we are verg around this election and the future of justice and equality in america is a healthy and quintessentially american enterprise, and the structure for that debate is the constitution, itself. >> reporter: the center features historic documents, including an original copy of the bill of rights. but it's more than a museum. >> maybe we do need to amend our constitution. >> reporter: it brings together conservatives and liberals to debate some of the most contentious issues of on our time. >> we, the people. >> reporter: there is a live performance that tells the story of our fight for freedom.

interactive displays where children imagine they really can be president and take the oath of office. and even a constitutional vip room. >> welcome here. isn't this incredible? >> reporter: yes. here you can mingle with the men who signed the document, 42 life-sized statues, the center's most popular exhibit, especially with kids. >> first, they want to see hamilton, because he is the rap star and then see ben franklin and sit on their. >> reporter: can i sit here? >> absolutely. go for it. absolutely. they see josh and how tall he is and they feel like american history belongs to them. >> reporter: but walking around this room and these divisive times, you have to wonder what the founders would think of us. >> these men in this room were familiar with bitter, polarizing disagreements over ideas. but these men were also able to compromise and that spirit of compromising enabled them to create this great document of
8:48 am
human freedom. >> reporter: that document remains the framework that unites us today and it provides the path forward. >> they created it. they empowered us. but unless we rise to the occasion through democratic self-education and learning about the constitution and their green light experiment will not survive but they were optimistic it would survive because they had faith in us and faith in the citizens and they had faith in the constitutional education. >> reporter: and that is why this center is so important. i mean, you see the vision, just how incredible it was what they created and how it's up to us to keep it. >> yeah. we had a tour yesterday from a woman named carrie who knew every little detail what is happening here. it makes you proud. didn't you feel that? >> it's amazing! such a radical idea that they had. what they pulled off and it still endures and it's an inspiration for the rest of the world. >> where were they when we need them? >> what would they think of us today? >> a must place to take your
