fatality and it's a small town. there's not much left in it. this storm avoided a lot of the big cities. that was fortunate. it went pretty much just to the east of rock ford and the west of dekalb. that was the normal path this tornado took. it was a big one for a while. this storm took path mostly over farmer's fields. not all but mostly. as a whole this is all the severe weather from yesterday. 165 hail reports. 16 tornado reports. most of those within the same complex in northern illinois. very strong storms waking people up all night long in kentucky and areas of tennessee. these sweep toward atlanta later today. as far as severe weather today, not many tornado, but we will see a lot of wind damage possible from the carolinas right down through mississippi and new orleans and also a lot of interest in the masters, the golf tournament.

likely cross paths with the cuban president. last night john kerri met with him. tracie potts is live in washington. how close is the u.s. to dropping cuba from the state sponsors of terrorism? >> reporter: a hill tafr says they're pretty close. president obama is going to back that. are they close enough to make an announcement about it at this summit? that's what we're watching for today. if the president has an informal meeting with the president, it will be historic. it will be the first time we've seen something like that in half a century. in the meantime one of the biggest meetings has already happened. the secretary of state and his cuban counter part the foreign minister, sat down for two hours talking in a restaurant bar at the hotel where they're meetings. they had security and a senior

ted cruz and jeb bush. but not rand paul or chris christie christie. they were not invited. i raised money for other second amendment groups. linking chafee announced that he's exploreing a run for the democratic nomination for president. he's a former republican. the kardashians met the prime minister of the armenian prime minister. >> and game of thrones has a d.c. edition. big political names. elizabeth warren was on the daily show. she got thunderous applause after being asked about student loan interest rates. >> the big banks have a lot better lobbyists than the
students do. i'm sorry but that's what it comes down to. we should not be charging our kids more to get a loan to go to college than we charge big financial institutions in order to finance their businesses. >> and the draft joe biden super pac opened a new online story. jimmy fallon talked about one of the items for sale. >> they started selling bumper stickers that said i'm riding with biden. that's the sicker. this is a lot better than the other one that women around the white house have started using. i'm hiding from biden. >> great catch phrases. and that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. in washington i'm joined by kevin. good morning. how do you top that riding the biding. >> happy friday. >> let's segue over to hillary
clinton. it feels like she has been running for president already. it's been like three years. why do you think she's picking now to announce and why on a weekend. >> three years? more like eight years. i think that she recently signed a lease in a brooklyn office building for a campaign head quarters and that really kick started a 15-day window in federal commissionings guidelines for when she would have to file to announce her candidacy. the clock is ticking down but we are just any day now expecting an announcement from the former secretary of state, and the clear front runner in the democratic field. >> kevin, i have to ask about bill. how is he going to play into her run. >> that's a great question. a lot of questions about his involvement. he all remember during the 2008 campaign when there were questions raised about his involvement. there's been some conflicting
reports. the former president clinton gave an interview recently and she said he would perhaps have a more low key but then reports in the last couple of days indicated he would be out front. what's interesting is from a policy standpoint on issues like trade, for example, where secretary clinton is going to have to perhaps differentiate a little bit from her husband's policy views, again, that political tight rope that hillary clinton is going to have to walk as she launches and campaigns for the nomination and for president. >> >> it's interesting. you talk about differentiating and now there's somebody else coming out on monday maybe marco rubio. he's possibly going to throw his hat into the ring. he's talking act tax reform. how is this going to play out for him. >> senator rubio is perhaps one of the most underrated republican candidates in the field. a lot of folks i talk with say if someone like former governor
bush or governor scott walker perhaps fails, senator rubio is someone who could clearly rise to the top. he comes from a more centrist wing of the republican party. he's straddled the line of bringing together tea party members and the more established members. he's someone to watch. >> thanks so much for your input. >> have a great weekend. >> and just ahead jimmy fallon is calling it the best tonight show performance yet. >> madonna lets loose. you're going to want to see this performance so don't go anywhere. up at night. know you have insights from professional investment strategists to help set your mind at ease. know that planning for retirement
