7:04 am
this whole scene here today, tonight, will remind the coun y powerfully how this once was. donald trump in the ring with hillary clinton. statistically tied for the presidency of the united states. a daring calculation, one that if successful, could catapult his candidacy and, if not, might well crater it. >> trump is doing great. he is being himself. >> mr. trump is ready for the debate. he is very expedited. >> reporter: donald trump surrogates went over the prep and suggested a life of real estate and reality tv may be enough. >> i think donald trump has been preparing for this debate for his entire lifetime. >> reporter: trump has held no mock debates and devoted little time to briefing books. his recent policy speeches have all been on teleprompter, a crutch he will not have against hillary clinton. house speaker paul ryan sounded
7:05 am
a cautionary note. >> hillary clinton has been doing this much of her life and a consummate pro and new for donald so i think he should overprepare for it. >> reporter: leading up to the debate trump spend 140 million on tv and digits ads. ten times his budget so far. the 100 million dollar tv investment first reported on by cbs news will finance ads in 13 states. including three states trump added because of tightening poll numbers. wisconsin, new mexico, and maine. another predebate development? >> donald, you're a coward. >> reporter: arch rival ted cruz buried the hatchet and formally endorsed trump. there is also predebate high jinx. clinton's campaign invited brash billionaire and trump crick mark cuban to the debate as her guest. trump returned the favor and
7:06 am
said he would put gennifer flowers alongside of him. she said she had a decades long affair with clinton. trump said she has not been formally invited and, gayle, they don't expect her to attend. >> nancy cordes is inside the debate arena tracking hillary clinton's preparation. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the clinton camp believes tonight's debate will be so pivotal she did just two public events all of last week, compared to the nine events that her opponent did and they say she has been prepping for a debate that will show she knows the issues and trump doesn't. clinton spent most of the weekend at home and at a nearby hotel, practicing with a small group of confidants, including campaign chairman john poe ddes and ron klain and
7:07 am
pmpltse. clinton has studied debates. her campaign is trying to get under his skin by releasing a list what they call the seven deadly lies he might tell tonight, like his claim that he opposed the iraq war from the beginning. or that he'll get mexico to pay for a border wall. on "face the nation," clinton's running mate argued trump needs to be held to the same standard as clinton when it comes to specifics. >> i think the great virtue of these debates you get 90 minutes to look at people and really see what whether there is depth, whether there is substance and whether there is a candor and truthfulness in what they say. >> reporter: clinton knows the format. she has participated in 26 presidential primary debates and needs a performance tonight that will stop her slide in the polls. the latest cbs news battleground tracker shows her lead has shrunk from 12 points to 8 in virginia and down to 1 point in
7:08 am
colorado, two states where her campaign was so confident a month and a half ago, they stopped airing tv ads. and that is why clinton's aides say cher job tonight is to convince a wide swath of voters that trump lacks detailed policy proposals and is easily provoked. to that end, you might hear her talk about his admiration of putin or even question whether trump is worth as much as he says he is. >> clinton campaign manager robbie mook is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> is a goal tonight to tear trump down or build her up and get at the question of trust, and command of issues? >> i'm really glad that you asked that because hillary clinton knows she needs to earn the voters' trust. we have found the unfiltered moments as tim kaine said 90 minutes up there she can speak directly to the voters and had the opportunity to talk about not just what her plans are to make a difference in people's lives but how this campaign is
7:09 am
really a part of a lifelong mission to fight for kids and families. she has done really well. i think it is -- will trump demonstrate a command of the issues? we think that is a bar every candidate needs to pass. we also are concerned that trump is going to continue to lie. >> why do you think she can change the trust dynamic in one debate when, in fact, she hasn't been able to do it over a lifetime or in terms of this campaign? >> the central question of this entire campaign is which one of these candidates is going to fight on the side of everyday people and it actually has plans will make a difference in their lives. can voters trust a candidate to get that done? and they can absolutely trust hillary at the she has a lifetime record of working with bojed of the aisle, bringing people together and getting real things done. >> we keep hearing she is preparing for two trump's. what exactly does that mean? tell us a little bit about the preparation work you all have been doing. >> well, one of the concerns that voters have about donald trump is he doesn't have the
7:10 am
right trempmeemperament to be commander in chief. we have seen him bullying hillary with mean tweets the last feud. few days. we don't know who will be there. but hillary will be prepared. >> in the front row who has been very vocal against donald trump is that a little while of a dig to call him out putting mark cuban on the front row? >> that was not the intent. >> both sides invite their supporters to come and we are proud to have mark cuban who came off the sidelines and he is political and has a lot of experience creating jobs. we are excited to have him there and have his support. he represents the kind of people coming to this campaign, republicans, republican leaning independents who are concerned about donald trump's temperament. >> was that an early indication inviting mark cuban that part of the strategy is to provoke donald trump tonight, to get
7:11 am
under his skin? >> again, we are really focused on this opportunity that hillary has to speak directly to the voters on the issues. but -- but we are concerned that donald trump may lie, he may throw misinformation out there and that hillary will have to spend all of her time trying to correct the record rather talking about the things she wants to. >> what do you expect the moderator to do? >> all we are asking is the record be checked. if donald trump lies, which he has repeatedly done in the past that that be simply checked. >> one of the surge that donald trump is experiencing this is a dead even heat. i know you have said the race would tighten but nobody thought it would be dead even at this point in time or a surge? >> i take that's public polls with a grain of salt. operationally, it doesn't matter. we should be running like we are 20 points behind and this is the most important election in our history and certainly our lifetimes and we should be all in and win by the biggest margin
7:12 am
we can. >> thank you, robbie mook. >> next hour, we go inside the donald trump preparation with jason miller. a lot of talk about whether the debate moderator should also be a fact checker. the executive director of the commission on presidential debates doesn't want that. >> commission asks independent smart journalists to be the moderators and we let them decide how they are going to do this. i don't think it's a good idea to get the moderator in as serving as the encyclopedaedia britannica and i think it's important to facilitate and ask the candidates to correct each other as they see fit. >> cbs news political director john dickerson and bob schieffer on here on some of this morning's face-offs. bob, you were involved in the last campaign's presidential race, what about janet brown just said? is it the responsibility? i know you've written about this. the candidates to fact-check each other? >> yes. i think you're being unfair to
7:13 am
both candidates if one of them makes a glaring error to not let the other person have an opportunity to call them out. i think people want to know if that person knows the answer to the question. >> that is a good thing. it's called a rebuttal. >> if they don't, then i think the moderator has to step in and say, you know, for the record, folks, take it from there. maybe ask another question. >> there has been talk that a lot of voters have still not made up their minds, john, tonight. what are they looking for and what should each candidate to do to try to get those voters on their side? >> it depends. basically, donald trump has to show that he can be president. a debate is the formal thing in a campaign where a candidate looks a little bit like a president and there is a style and so, you know, for donald trump, it's basically to present something different than the candidate who shows up at his rallies. for hillary clinton, she has a bunch of things. she to remind people of the other donald trump and she has to show something from her
7:14 am
heart, which is both for those undecided voters but it's also for her voters. what we know from political science about debates is that people become stronger partisans when they watch debates. in hillary clinton hasn't enthusiasm problem and that is different than vote intent. in other words, people may be ready to vote but may not be excited about it. if she has an enthusiasm problem, then a debate can make people think, oh, that is why i like her. >> you think this is more about shoring up your base than it is about reaching undecided? >> it can be both. undecided may slosh around over the course of three debates but voting going on now. if both of your campaigns can grab voters that are newly energized by something happens in a debate and bank votes and get them in line so there is an organizational benefit. >> in fact, the campaigns believe that 40% of the final tally may be by early vote this year. to your point. that is why these debates are so critical. it's not that you'll remember going into the booth but people are voting now. >> well, norah, that is why when we talk about facts and all of that, these debates are about so
7:15 am
much more. than somebody's position on the issues. voters want to take a measure of the person. does a person have the right stuff? does he have the dignity, the courage, how you react under pressure. i think the reason most people vote for a president is do they think this is someone that they would feel comfortable with in time of crisis. >> therefore, what does donald trump have to do and how does he do it? >> it will be interesting to see. i mean, i have no idea what donald trump is going to do. and anybody that wants to predict what donald trump is going to do -- >> it's not a question of what might do but what does he have to do? in other words, how do you appear presidential? does he become somber and less attractive? >> i think he has to just leave the impression that he could handle the job. now, how he goes about that, i have no idea. >> isn't that pretty low bar?
7:16 am
>> well, but that's what i think is -- what people decide during these debates. >> do you think they are being judged differently, hillary clinton and donald trump? the clinton campaign says that she is being held to a much higher standard than he. >> no, i don't think so. i think they are both judged by exactly the same standards and we will see what happens. how they decide what the standards are that they are trying to meet. >> impressions will be made in the first 10 or 15 minutes? >> that's right. because of twitter. what is happening -- a lot of reporters will be wasting their time looking at twitter instead of the whole 90 minutes and they will develop a narrative and that narrative will start bouncing around and we saw that in the last campaign and that is not good. >> yeah. 90 minutes and no breaks. all right. thank you both. bob schieffer and john dickerson. watch tonight's debate on cbs. our live coverage begins at 9:00 eastern/8:00 central. the world is remember the extraordinary career and life of arnold palmer, the golfing great died yesterday from heart
7:17 am
complications at the age of 87. palmer's style and dominance on the golf course elevated the game to new heights. dana jacobson has more. >> reporter: beloved and transcendent is how arnold palmer is remembered today. his father a golfer and grounds keeper in latrobe, pennsylvania, introduced him to the game that he introduced to millions. voted the athlete of the decades in the 60s, palmer was always true to his father's words. don't think people how good you are -- show them! >> the line is perfect. he's got it! >> reporter: norah o'donnell known simply as "the king," arnold palmer captivated the sports world with his ferocious style of play and magnetism of a movie star. golf would never be the same when palmer burst on the scene in the late 1950s and became the face of the sport as tv turned into more homes. in all he won seven major titles including four masters and ta y
7:18 am
tallying 62 pga tours wins and court by presidents and had a rabid fans dubbed palmer's army. his approach ratcheted up the drama of the game. >> and this fellow is still hunting birdies. >> in 2011 he spoke to to charlie rose. >> there is no game like it. you go out there and you tee it up on the first tee, charlie. >> yes. >> it's you. a golf ball and the golf course. and there you go. >> reporter: palmer was a pioneer in marketing for athletes and paved the way for future stars and even a drink named after him. he also received the presidential medal of freedom and congressional gold medal. the battles between palmer and jack nicklaus defined rivalry and though nicklaus came out most times, palmer said even the losses helped shaped him. >> they really hurt, but when i
7:19 am
reflect on it now and i look back and i say, it taught me something. it taught me how to live and how to be a better guy and not let it defeat, be the end of my life. and i'm thankful for that. >> in a statement last night, his long time friend and rival jack nicklaus said we were great competitors who loved competing against each other but we were always great friends along the way. arnold had my back and i always had his. he was the king of our sport. and uls will be and bob hope may have put it best. he said in bringing golf to the masses, two things matter -- arnold palmer and the mulligan. >> there is a saying in golf that every governor played since him should give him 15% of their earnings because he made the game. >> everything thought michael jordan made marketing in sports. arnold palmer started it. >> the friendship was genuine

new details on a deadly rampage at a shopping mall in the pacific northwest. is there any connection to terrorism? >> ahead, what investigators are learning about the suspect captured after a massive manhunt. the news is back this morning right here on "cbs this morning." smoking's a monkey on my back. it was, it was always controlling your time, your actions, your money. it had me. it had me. i would not be a non-smoker today if it wasn't for chantix. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced my urge to smoke some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems,
7:22 am
which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side effect is nausea. it's me in control now. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. that gives you better taste

7:24 am
of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto.

get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto. clean better than a manual... electric toothbrush was going to he said sure, but don't just get any one. get one inspired by dentists, with a round brush head! go pro with oral-b. oral-b's rounded brush head cups your teeth to break up plaque and rotates to sweep it away. and oral-b crossaction delivers a clinically proven superior clean vs. sonicare diamondclean. my mouth feels super clean! oral-b. know you're getting a superior clean. i'm never going back to a manual brush.

8:03 am
her way. the key states have moved back to tossup. >> the question is why? >> the answer is enthusiasm on the part of her voters has gone down and so what happens in polling is it's not that people are switching over to donald trump or going back and forth. her voters are saying they are less likely to vote and less excited about her. >> she is losing rather than gaining? >> yeah, for the most part and one of the things i think she has to do tonight is rev up that base. you look at younger voters and parts of her constituency she has got to get all of and they tell you yeah, we are a little less excited. yeah, we are a little less likely to come out and that makes the poll numbers go down. >> she is at 264 and he is at 191 and the same he was several weeks ago. >> right. but for him, that is actually -- that is actually good. because she has come down and that, obviously, puts a lot of states now where he is in striking distance. and that wasn't the case -- >> she is only one state away from winning. >> you can look at that way as
8:04 am
well, yeah. >> how do you look at it then? >> i look at it it's still a race. this is a race that can now go either way. because it wasn't the case before, right? she is one state away. here is the thing, norah. here is the thing. she doesn't necessarily win them all in a row. the states moop move in tandem but yes it's one state but states swing as a group if a big change happens. >> if the polls are right, 100 million of us will be watching. can't wait. thank you very much. >> yep. >> trust is a serious trouble spot for both of the candidates. a recently poll shows that 45% of voters think that donald trump is honest and trustworthy. only 36% see hillary clinton that way. on sunday, the candidate surrogates addressed the trust issue. >> i think donald trump always speaks straight from his mind and straight from his heart. i think he's the most bold, truth teller to run for president of the united states. >> but she has a challenge because donald trump is saying

8:07 am
he punches back when challenged. has the campaign talked about how they may do that tonight? he is going to counterpunch? >> he'll be ready for tonight. never underestimate donald trump. >> he is preparing not by the way she might be preparing with briefing books, but looking for some psychological insight? >> well, the one thing that we have seen, this is more on the staff end. this is more as we discuss as a team in getting things together is that secretary clinton, she will do great in her first answer. we will see her first answer in each sick sections and she will hit a home run and programmed and poll and tested out. where secretary clinton runs into trouble is the second and third answers where it become more variables come and more interaction between the candidates and where she runs into trouble. >> people question whether he has a second and third answer, that he is not deep on terms of policy. he is primarily deep in terms of a broad statement, like, "i'll
8:08 am
build a wall." >> mr. trump has laid out out how to get the economy going and he has the policies and his website he has laid out very detailed plans and great piece in the "wall street journal" today on that point. and you'll see -- you'll see tremendous amount of substance. you'll see a remarkable clarity. and, again, when we start getting into the second and third questions -- after the openings for each candidate you have this back and forth, this ten-minute section and that is where hillary starts running into trouble is because you can't go and poll test through -- >> where -- >> are they allowed to question each other? >> there will be some back and forth. but it's largely determined by the moderator. >> where is it that voters make up their mind in the first 10 to 15 minutes? a lot of people watching on twitter. are you concerned about that in no 90-minute break and you can't go to a break and say here is what you want to do here and there. no worries or concerns about that? >> mr. trump is going to come % out and he'll talk about his vision. again, the great thing about mr. trump he is not the politician. he is going to be the same

8:32 am
moment on the campaign trail. take a look at this. a crowd of people in orlando recently turned their backs to hillary clinton. this was not a snub. they were trying to snap a selfie with her. some people wondered whether hillary clinton had invited the crowd to take the selfie all at once. that would certainly make more sense that somebody said, let's all do it at the same time because it's unusual you see everybody turn their backs at the same time. >> she is clearly enjoying the moment. >> that is the way to make something go viral. everyone, take a selfie and share it. >> to that point this photo has been retweeted more than 16,000 times. national security is a featured topic at tonight's first presidential debate. a new bloomberg national poll finds 24% of americans believe the threat from terrorism and isis is the most important issue facing the country. fox news and host and anchor bill o'rooil i didn't takes on the country's most pivotal national securities in his latest book "killing the rising

8:34 am
your air time is limited, the mistakes don't really matter because there's so much clutter. but one on one with everybody analyzing every word you say and every sill balance you say is a lot hard e. >> one-on-one, 90 minutes with no break. you asked donald trump are you going to take hillary apart and he said, i have no idea. did you believe that answer from him? >> yeah. i do. i think he is a counterpunch. i think the trump track is he is going to try to portray the country as being in a serious crisis. all right? that is what he is going to do. but if she starts at him he has five or six bang bang bang. you saw it over the weekend. the clinton campaign invited mark cuban to sit there and that was, you know, a little of this to trump. what does he do? he one up's it with gennifer flowers. if he hits trump, trump comes back with fairly rehearsed lines that he has. >> that is the theater of this debate and certainly a lot of that in this campaign. in terms of substance and the
8:35 am
one-on-one, many of the papers this weekend sort of took apart donald trump in terms of detailing the number of factual inaccuracies he has laid out during this campaign. how do you think that plays itself out tonight? >> viewers don't really care about -- >> the facts? >> the facts? >> not about facts. trump himself is a generalist. the big picture guys. country in trouble. i'm going to fix it and i'm the negotiator. his supporters and those who may vote for him who are undecided accept the fact he is not a guy who is going to be teaching in princeton political science. they accept it. the voter is going to be looking how they conduct themselves tonight. >> how significant do you think the momentum he has now is? >> her -- the basket of deplorables really hurt her because has is speaking down and even if americans don't like him, they don't like that. she comes off as an ice queen.
8:36 am
again, this is a lot of personality involved with this election. a lot of personality. >> you said that that was a condescending comment but some people would say some of the things donald trump has been very condescend to go a wide variety of people. do you think that matters? >> yes. he has been called racist and misogynist. i think two candidates have heavy deficits coming into this debate. >> the book, give us the drama of the decision to drop the atomic bomb. >> when i started researching this book, martin duguard did the heavy researching. i didn't know eisenhower didn't want to drop the bomb. he told truman, no, don't do it. i will tell you why he didn't want to drop the bomb he wanted the glory of the invasion but it would have killed 4 to 5 million people. >> you say he makes a decision, truman isn't sure what the bomb
8:37 am
is? >> franklin roosevelt who dies in georgia with his mistress in the room. another fascinating story. he never even talked to truman! he thought truman was a clerk! all right? truman never got briefed. he didn't know anything. then eleanor calls him to the white house and says he is dead. truman says is there anything i can do for you, mrs. roosevelt? she said, is there anything i can do for you? you're in trouble now. truman knewing nothing. he has to get up to speed on what it is. he had no idea. >> the long lens of history on that decision, interesting. you have carter and both bush's writing letters supporting the decision. >> i asked all five living presidents to write me a personal letter whether they would have supported truman to drop the bomb. three didn't, two bush's and carter. all three said yes. this is speculation. i don't think he would have dropped the bomb. clinton didn't because he didn't want to get into a controversy
8:38 am
with his wife running for president. but i think clinton would have dropped it. >> some of your critics say that killing series, it's time for the killing to stop, o'reilly? >> yeah. we only sell 2 to 3 million books each time. yeah, i think some of the critics may be a little jealous, gayle, but that's just me. >> thank you. >> three more coming. >> killing the rising sun is on sale now. you can watch tonight's debate right here on cbs. our live coverage begins at 9:00 eastern/8:00 central. >> he is an original member of hollywood's famous brat pack. i wonder if he is sick of that term? rob lowe is playing a military doctor on "code black." he's in our toyota green room. check out that hairdo! dude, good to see you.
