the democratic debate. clinton and sanders trading jabs and three other candidates getting their first chance to make a first impression. we've got it all covered this morning from the debate to the latest on vice president joe biden, and we'll talk to msnbc contributor nicolle wallace, but let's begin with nbc national correspondent peter alexander in las vegas. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning to you. hillary clinton's debate experience, her debate preparation paid off last night. her advisers this morning are estatic. they insist she was on, that she looked poised and passionate in what was the first democratic presidential primary debate in nearly eight years. >> let me say something that may not be great politics. >> reporter: when it came to hillary clinton's e-mail scandal, it was her chief rival bernie sanders who sent a message loud and clear. >> the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails. >> thank you, me, too, me, too. >> reporter: clinton accused the house benghazi committee of
partisan attacks aimed at driving down her poll numbers. >> that this committee is basically an arm of the republican national committee. i am still standing. i am happy to be part of this debate. >> reporter: with president clinton watching his wife from their las vegas hotel. >> i would not ask anyone to vote for me based on my last name. >> reporter: secretary clinton appeared confident and comfortable, casting herself as a history-making candidate. >> i think being the first woman president would be quite a change. >> reporter: and taking pride in her enemies. >> well, in addition to the nra, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the iranians, probably the republicans. >> reporter: the debate was initially more contentious than expect the. here's clinton asked if sanders has been tough enough on gun control. >> no, not at all. this has gone on too long, and tease time that the entire country stood up against the nra. >> all the shouting in the world
is not going to do what i would hope all of us want, and that is keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have those guns. >> reporter: two clashed over sanders' political views. >> the casino capitalist process by which so few have so much. >> reporter: what he calls democratic socialism. >> i think we should look to countries like denmark, like sweden and norway and learn from what they have accomplished for their working people. >> we are not denmark. i love denmark. we are the united states of america. >> reporter: sanders called out clinton for her support of the iraq war. >> the worst foreign policy blunder in the history of this country. >> reporter: then there was martin o'malley challenging clinton on foreign policy. >> i believe that a no-into zone in syria at this time actually, secretary, would be a mistake. >> i was very pleased when governor o'malley endorsed me for president in 2008. >> going back and forth over there. >> as jim webb and lincoln chafee struggled to break through. >> you're looking at a block of
gran snit finally before the two-plus hour debate was done. >> all the candidates are back which i'm very happy to see. >> reporter: clinton joked about barely squeezing in a bathroom break. >> it does take me a little longer, that's all i can say. >> reporter: and that republican front-runner donald trump has weighed in this morning as well, like her or not, hillary clinton did her job that. e-mail night played well for clinton but also for sanders. as soon as it happened he began fund-raisingration $1.3 million in four hours to give you perspective. that's as much as carly fiorina on the republican side raise the in the first two months of her campaign. clinton's team knows that one test is done. they have another test ahead, eight days from now. she testified before the house benghazi committee. savannah. >> peter alexander, thank you. one of the biggest names in democratic politics was not even on the stage in las vegas. he was watching at home with time running out for him to jump into the race. did vice president joe biden see anything last night that would help him make up his mind?
let's get to nbc white house correspondent kristen welker on the biden watch this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. if vice president biden was looking for a clear opening into the race last night, he didn't get it. many of the headlines this morning suggesting that clinton boxed him out, even his supporters acknowledging privately second clinton had one of her strongest nights of the campaign. now, as you said, pressure is mounting for biden to make a decision with his supporters growing increasingly impatient. the draft biden superpac released a powerful ad urging him to get in the race, but biden was far from the action watching the debate home at his naval observatory. as of last night, the vice president was still undecided but knows he has to make a decision soon, possibly within a week. among the top considerations, making sure he was a realistic path to winning the nomination and also making sure his family is emotionally strong enough after his sewn beau passed away in way.
there was speculation that biden may announce his candidacy today. inside he has his weekly lunch with a president and a roundtable about infrastructure. savannah, matt? >> kristen welker at the white house. as promised republican front-runner donald trump watched the debate and live tweet the his thoughts to his 4.5 million followers. >> all are very scripted and rehearsed, two at least should not be on the stage, one tweet. the hardest thing clinton has to do is defend her bad decision making, iraq votes, emills, et cetera. here was a third. o'malley as former mayor of baltimore, has very little chance, and there was this one. can anyone imagine chafee as president in the no way. he summed it up by saying, sorry, there is no star on the stage tonight. meanwhile, announced on tuesday donald trump will take a different kind of stage when he hosts "saturday night live" on november 7th. msnbc contributor nicolle wallace served as communications corrector for former president george w. bush and was a senior
adviser to the mccain/palin campaign back in 2008. nicole, welcome back. >> thank you. >> talked about going into this debate it was hillary clinton's to lose. she had to avoid any major gaffes. mission accomplished? >> absolutely. she did more than avoid gaffs. she did what was most important for her campaign structurally. she stopped a lotted of hand-wringing among of the democratic donor class, among that group that kristen just reported that's desperate for biden to jump in. she went a long way to quiting those calls by having a more effective script on the answers, often the e-mail, about having a better answer on the iraq vote and i thought she did everything she had to do last night. >> and got a humongous assist from none other than her rival in the campaign bernie sanders who decided to come to her defense on the e-mails saying everyone is sick of talking about that and clearly ate that up and loved that. was that a good moment for bernie sanders or should he have gone to her weak point? >> one of my favorite moments, a rare moment of civility.
everyone is so hungry for civility in politics and you see that the result was that they both benefited. she got a little political boost from him. he got a big fund raising boost, and what is being true about what bernie said is in a his supporters that go to see him are totally down with democratic socialism. i'm not sure i understand it and they really don't ask about the e-mail but i thought it fell to acooper to bring the facts back into the conversation which is that the fbi, which is not on a partisan witch-hunt, is looking into that server. >> on the democratic side of things, there's so much talk about gun, guns and gun legislation in this country right now. how did bernie sanders do on that top snick. >> well, in the room he was like a stinky sock, right? i mean, in the realm it was -- it was all they could do is not boo his answer in the room, but should he say in this race, i don't think he did anything to broaden his base. i think his supporters remain passionate for him, but i think his message is more of a center
right message on guns. i think the liberal base of the democratic party, which is who hillary and the rest of them were talking to last night, far prefer hillary clinton's answer. >> we've got to talk about joe biden. >> yeah. >> he was watching that debate. many people think that this was one of the decision points for him seeing how she does and how she held up. what do you do if you're him this morning? >> i think it gets a little more difficult. i accept his definition he's going through a personal process, his grief and he how he needs to channel it and the political opening is less, but i think the opportunity for joe biden to step in and continue to serve the country -- hillary did mention another man who wasn't on the stage and that's her former boss, president obama, a lot more than i think she would have if she wasn't worried about a biden run. >> are you saying biden missed his moment, possibly could have gotten in when hillary clinton appeared weaker and now she seems to have regained her footing in a debate like that? >> elizabeth winner is another
democrat who may have missed her moment. the moment when everyone is screaming at top of the lungs for you to get in is what you should get in. when they stop screaming it only gets harder and running for president is pushing a boulder up the hill. esthe moment that it's the easiest and resembles pushing anything downhill is when everybody is screaming at top of their lungs. i don't know if they will be screaming anymore. to florida and a small plane crash that smokd a community there. take a look the live scene in suburban lakeworth. an investigation is under way this morning the authorities trying to figure out how many people were on board that aircraft. nbc's kerry sanders is there for us this morning. kerry, good morning to you. >> reporter: well, good morning, savannah. authorities are trying to determine how many people are on board the plane that may have died and also how many people on the ground in mobile home park who may have also died. at least one father here says that he has not seen his 21-year-old daughter since the
crash. she lived inside one of the mobile homes that was struck. this morning investigators are trying to figure out how a small plane veered off course, crashing into a mobile home park in lake worth, florida, on tuesday. this sfains video captured the moments just as the plane crashed around 6:00 p.m. the aircraft hitting one home before bursting into flames. the fire quickly spreading to a second home. >> there were two trailers that were on fire when we arrived. the faa is en route to the location as we speak. >> reporter: police say it's unclear how many people were inside the trailers or in the plane when it went down. >> i heard a big boom noise. >> we saw fire coming out of house, out of windows. >> reporter: witnesses say they ran to the scene, some frantically calling 911. >> i was scared and got chills. i told my boss, look, there's gray smoke coming out. >> reporter: while others describing in heartbreaking detail how bystanders tried to
rescue those trapped. >> heard from a witness that he tried to break the window to get a lady out and couldn't do it on time because the flames was busting out and hopefully he was hoping the lady was okay but he was tearing down crying. >> reporter: overnight plumes of smoke were rising from the wreckage at firefighters preserved the scene for faa and ntsb investigators expected to arrive later this morning. as we look at a picture of the scene from above, you can see the size of the area that was t it. the national transportation safety board will be here and three miles away at lantana airport this morning where it was believed this airplane was headed. >> kerry sanders at the scene, thank you very much. >> natally is on assignment and tamron is here with a look at an escalating violent situation in the middle east. >> good morning. israel son high alert an taking action against an escalating wave of deadly violence by palestinians. nbc chief global correspondent
bill kneely is in jerusalem. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. from the very spot at jerusalem's old city where two of the attacks took place, this is now a city gripped by fear and suspicion. israel has now hit back, not just with more police and more checkpoints, but with a threat of collective punishment for palestinians and a warning. some of you may find some of the pictures in this report disturbing. one from where several of the palestinian attackser set out to kill, but they are struggling to contain this violence. the police say they can't stop these attacks through intelligence because most of them are carried out by people they don't know, often teenagers with no links to terrorist groups, acting spontaneously and often at random. israelis are scared. so scared gun sales are up an shooting ranges are booming. in the worst attack two men targeted a bus with a knife and
guns. today's commuters don't feel reassured by the one extra policemen on board. a decade ago suicide bombers regularly target the the buses so anyone with a backpack or a thick coat was eyed suspiciously. today a knife is much harder to spot. the images caught on security cameras have horrified and terrified and condemned by the u.s. >> the situation is simply too volatile, too dangerous. >> reporter: israel desperate to end attacks that it have it seems no patterns and no leaders. one new israeli measure is controversial, it says it will not return the body of any attacker it kills to their families. instead, it's considering burying them secretly at a cemetery for terrorists, and that, tamron, is likely to anger many palestinians. back to you. >> all right, bill, thank you very much. a jury has ordered a
wisconsin gun shop to bay nearly $6 million to a pair of milwaukee police officers who were seriously wounded with a weapon bought at the store. officers brian norberg and a retired officer were both shot in the face. the badger gun shop was found negligent. according to the lawsuit store ignored warning signs that the gun was being sold to a so-called straw buyer. that is someone who buys a gun for someone else who cannot legally purchase it. an appeal is expect the. the hunt for one of the world's most wanted men has intensified this morning the drug lord known as el chapo escaped from a mexican prison back in july. well, now, u.s. and mexican officials believe they have now clues that could lead to his capture. nbc's mark potter reports. >> reporter: this morning u.s. drug agents and mexican marines are in pursuit of joaquin "el chapo" guzman.
u.s. agents intercepted phone conversations indicating chapo was hiding in a run on the rugged sierra madres mountains. mexican agents raid the the area and they thought they had him surrounded, but the drug kingpin wasn't there. authorities told the resident they were on the lookout for a man usually surrounded by bodyguards without mentioning chapo by name, but people know that he's target. this woman says the environment is very tense, and they are scared. authorities say chapo's cartel is the biggest supplier of illicit drugs to the united states. the u.s. says it's doing all it can to help mexico capture the elusive chapo who always seems to be one step ahead of them. for "today," mark potter, nbc news miami. >> it's on to the national league championship series, the

morning. it's a condition name packets millions of american women, post-partum depression and it's gaining new found attention after hayden panettiere announced she's checked herself into a treatment facility, a subject she's been very open and hon best since the birth of her daughter. >> and it's really painful and it's really scary. >> reporter: hayden panettiere opening up just last month about her struggle with post-partum depression. >> something that i know a lot of women experience. >> reporter: the "nashville" actress welcomed daughter kaya in december 2014 and her reps confirmed to e news she's seeking treatment. hayden panettiere is voluntarily seeking professional help at a treatment center as she is currently battling post-partum depression. while post-partum depression is considered one of the most common complications of pregnancy, doctors say it's often underrecognized and undertreated. >> when it gets to the point where it interferes with the maternal bonding with the child, where it interferes with the mother's ability to care for herself is when she should
probably seek help. >> reporter: panettiere is not first celebrity to shed light on post-partum depression? and i was part of an entire percentage of women that experienced frightful thoughts and fearful images and have no connections with their children. >> reporter: an estimated 1 in 7 new mothers experience some form of post-partum mood or anxiety disorder. >> you don't realize what broad of a spectrum you can really experience that on, and it's something i think that needs to be talked about and women need to know that they are not alone. >> let's turn to dr. natalie azar, our nbc medical contributor. good morning to you. >> good morning to you. >> one thing i learned from this it can strike any time in the first year. >> it did, and intuitively we think it makes the most sense it would happen the first few weeks to two months after child sglirt hormones are raging. >> your life is literally turned upside time, time of the most stress but can happen during the
firstee post-partum. two of my closest friends had it hit around nine or ten months and hit the skids. very interesting. >> you're already sleepless and might have the blues. how do you know if it's something you need to worry about? >> the biggest distinction between the baby blues and what's called post-partum depression really has to do with the duration and intensity and severity of your symptoms. quite normal around two days post-partum to have that crash of hormones. we think that's the main cause and you feel, you know, at that moment you're feeling possibly irritable or anxious or sad. have a new baby and not quite sure what to do. that should generally last two weeks. if it lasts for longer than two weeks and the symptoms become more severe you're having difficulty with sleerngs feeling helpless and feeling hopeless and feelings of guilt and one of the main reasons is this disconnect between the expectations of motherhood and the reality of motherhood. >> that's why it makes it such a difference to have someone like hayden talking about it because there's a feeling in the media you're supposed to be it's so wonderful and, of course, you love your baby but this is real.
>> when we experience this kind of thing, i had it with boast of my kids you feel that sense of gift, have this wonderful new baby in your life and should feel happy and on the other hand you're feeling stressed and overwhelmed. you're mourning your relationship with your husband and by the way i should give a little acknowledge not fathers out there. they can experience post-partum depression independent of whether their wives do and you can get help and it's important to point out if you do have risk factors of post-partum, a prior history of depression or family history of depression, in confact your ob gash gyn or primary care fay significance so they can identity symptoms early. >> dr. azar, thank you. over to matt. coming on trending what, men say they wish women would do on dates. i'll leave it at that. and in "pop start" one of the most famous movie scenes of all time. what jennifer gray has to say about that legendary lift.

evening news" dan rather spent decades bringing the day's important events to millions viewers but his career was cut short when one sorted he reported for "60 minutes" came under fire for failures in reporting protocol. that report about then president george w. bush's national guard service is the subject of a new film. it's called "truth." robert redford stars as dan rather. dan, good morning. always nice to see you. >> good to see you. >> i want to get to the serious nature of this in a second but i have to start by asking you did you ever dream someone would make a movie of your life or an aspect of it and robert redford would play you? >> no, matt. i think i thought more likely i would become the pope of rome or the dalai lama rather than have robert redford one of the great actors in this generation play you on the big screen.
still trying to get my head around. >> if the introduction i gave the back story, this report on george w. bush's national guard service, documents that it was based on called into question. it was a very troubling time in your career and in the history of cbs news. reputations were shattered. people lost their job. why did you want it to come to the big screen? >> well, first of all, hi very little to do with it coming to the big screen and i was surpriseded when someone option it had for the big screen. and i didn't believe a movie would ever get made, but i do think the movie is less about me and marry mapes and even george w. bush. what it's about is what's happened to the news. why it's happened and how it's happened and why people should care. >> and that's a really good point, so if you were to look back, it's been about a decade now. >> right. >> if you were to look back, what would you do differently in that same circumstance? >> well, i would do a lot of things differently. what i wouldn't do differently is back off the story. the story was true.
because it was true undeniable facts about how president bush got into the air national guard to avoid service in vietnam and the fact that after getting in he disappeared, those were facts and that was true. because it was true those who wanted to discredit the story had to attack process by which which got to the truth and they have successfully attacked us on that so among things i would do is, number one, i would realize that we had to have a much better defense in the bloggospear and number two, cbs news, in a break from tradition did not back its reporting and that was a surprise to me. i have a lot of the responsibilities in this myself. >> someone with such a storied career up to that moment. what was it like to live in the eye that have storm where you were being so severely questioned? >> well, it wasn't pleasant. this is was the darkest period of my professional career.
i would much remember a movie be made about my coverage of civil rights or watergate or the vietnam war and it was a dark period and one was in the vortex of this. you have a sense that the world is spinning and spinning out of control and nothing you can do can put you out of that so what i tried to do is recognize that, yes, we had made the mistakes in the process of developing the story and as a consequence had left herself vulnerable and the mistakes we made is how we got to the truth but not the truth self. >> you've been out of that anchor chair for ten years. do you miss it? >> of course i miss it. i've moved on. i long ago made my peace with my time at cbs and now tried to be in gratitude, modesty and humility and i have moved on. do investigative reporting for axis tv and do a program called
"the big interview." i'm into the new world of -- the digital world and still doing the kind of stories that i like to do, and i'll really excited about moving forward. this is well in the past, as i say. i think the story resonates today, but i'm constantly moving forward and trying, to you know, keep up with buzzfeed. >> not me, because i'm having trouble. >> snapchat and i think it's an exciting time in journalism. i'm an optimist by experience and by name. yes, i've had my difficulties and made my mistakes but i'm excited every morning when my feet hit the floor i want to look for a story. >> always good to see you, dan. >> thank you, matt. >> a pleasure. >> thank you, my friend. >> ant move "truth" opens friday. it's a book about our favorite fashions and how to sport some of the trends of the past and to do it today and first on a wednesday morning and this is "today" on nbc.
this morning on "throwback today" a look at fashion because these days everything old is new again. some of the biggest fashion trends this year inspired by style classics of years past, so as a reference we thought we'd share a look back at our own personal style. >> for my eighth grade graduation, my dad bought me a novemberbly nehru suit with a medallion this big and thankfully there are no pictures that exist of that suit all i need was the big daffodil, you know. that my one brush with the counterculture. >> i thought i was the coolest when i got my first pair of chuck taylor converse sneakers. high top white canvas. i thought i was it. >> my idol was olivia newton-john. ♪ xanadu
>> and i remember wanting to be like her and skating around my apartment in flowy dresses with my skates and leg warmers. >> i grew up in the desert. it was 115 degrees, and i insisted on having leg warmers. i got them for christmas. the '80s were not kind to me. ways in high school. used to wear boxer shorts to school, actual men's boxer shorts. i can't believe my parents let me out of house and everybody did it. >> i embraced the pinstripes, the somewhat bigger hey, the shoulder pads. i think the '80s, not a good look. not a good look for any one of us. >> i wanted guess jeans so badly i was so excited to have that little red triangle on my back pocket. they got a lot of wear, i can tell you that. i had a jean jacket and i'm still wearing it. >> still trying to get over the fact that savannah wore men's
box boxer shorts. take us through some of the retro fashion trends back in action this fall. congratulations. "good housekeeping's" 11th anniversary. >> thank you so much. as you said, faction is really like the darwinism of fashion, the survival of the fittest and a lot of trends like with savannah and al but some aren't coming back. >> these are coming back and are worn differently. >> the broaches. we used to see them just like one a piece on a lapel jacket and can you see how i have them here in a cluster. all about sparkle and structure. >> in the past somebody would wear one broach and that would be the statement and now you're wearing them. >> in a cluster, object slit of a skirt, belt loops, getting inventive. >> this is called the box bag made popular by a lot of celebrities. let's take a look at what it used to be looked like. >> this is first lady jackie
kennedy and princess diana. this hit a fever pitch in the 198s. these are all under 100. different textures, studs, quilts, olivia. all under 100 and have fun with pat sglerns we'll start to move here. fit and flair dresses. what are they. >> yes. this is like the betty draper style, "mad men," cut in on the waist and flared out and so structured, matt. you weren't able to move in them but now we're going to see our lovely model savannah. >> come on out. >> not in boxer shorts. >> savannah? >> i thought i was getting a big entrance. >> here i am, in my fit and flair dress. >> and what we love about this, matt, she can really move in it. >> doesn't she look beautiful? >> oh, every day. >> even after that prank she played on you? >> under $80. we love that it's even borrowing
from trends like the '70s and the '60s silhouette. very '70s. >> i think my mom had this great. >> you look great. >> it's beautiful. >> we're slide past you. >> my gig is over. >> stay there and put the boxer on. >> this is a statement coat. let's take a look at what it looked like. >> i think we're seeing diana ross and marilyn monroe here, and it was all about making a bold statement, the outfit-maker and it still is and now can you wear it with jeans and a t-shirt if you want we'll see our lovely model tamron that comes out. she's dressed up today but this coat could easily go with a more casual look, from forever 21, faux fur, want to make that clear, faux fur and it's all about a faux texture in an unexpected neutral in this blush tone. tamron as always, looks beautiful. >> have motd else here that it hard to make look bad. >> we're going to slip that --
>> let not leave men out. >> the no. >> entirely. >> okay. >> it used to be in days of old when i was 30, a lot of guys wore bowties. take a look at what they looked like. >> yes. >> we have robert redford and mr. james bond, but now this is an interesting one because a lot of hipsters have started this trend of wearing bowties so it doesn't just have to be formalwear so our lovely model matt -- >> sorry, i'm here. >> al. >> the other matt. >> sorry, al. >> and i think al looks fantastic. talking about this earlier. this is under $50, and it's really a really good way to be polished but look cool as well and the difference, matt, that's cotton so that's a big thing for men right now. doesn't have to be silk or satin and can be a cotton bowtie and get in close the different prints so that's something that's a little different. not solid on solid but we're
mixing everything up. >> i've got everybody, looks fabulous. go to your mother or foreor grandparent's closet and shop. don't need to spend a ton. >> ask permission first. thank you. >> thank you. >> and thanks to our models as well. for the full fashion list go to today.com. we're back in a movement this is "today" on nbc.

fighting to save atlantic county. chris brown's attacks? the press calls them "embarrassing" political "posturing." the truth? chris brown and will pauls opposed the atlantic city rescue plan, even though it would save thousands of our jobs. we already know they're propped up by north jersey casino interests. and pauls even wanted the vote to allow north jersey casinos "this year." now they brag about helping atlantic county. but there's a word for politicians like that. hypocrite.

when you said pilgrim i heard hot bill grim, but, you know. >> pilgrims are widely known for their hotness. >> or she said an extra from the movie "working girl" and i wrote back working pilgrim girl though that sounds illegal. >> it does, it does. >> let's get into the this last night. >> in vegas. >> big democratic debate. >> hillary clinton said she's taken responsibility for her use of personal e-mail server during her time as secretary of state. she said a few times now that it was a mistake. if you looked on that stage you had bernie sanders, had hillary clinton and then sort of working your way out you had -- >> nobody. >> jim webb. you had martin o'malley and lincoln chafe year, all serious people, all, you know, senators, governors, but not polling very well. this is really a two-horse race at this point, so last night bernie sanders actually weighing in on hillary clinton and all this talk about her e-mail server. >> let me say something that may not be great politics but i
think the secretary is right, and that is that the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails. >> thank you. >> thank you, me, too. >> thank you. >> look at the joy on secretary clinton's face. >> she was -- >> she was ebullient. >> the weakness that people were going to go and bernie sanders just bailed me out. >> forever that will be one of those moments in debate history that people will remember. >> yeah. >> doesn't matter what the outcome of this election. you don't see that often, and she literally was about to give him a high five. give me some, bernie. i mean, it was crazy, that moment. >> yeah. >> amazing. >> we have some reporting from mark halperin, a well known political journalist and he said bernie, actually, coming from person's camp, sort of blew his line there, supposed to be a criticism, sick and tired of hearing about your e-mail and came off that the people are sick and tired and let's move forward.
>> that didn't stop her from going hard on him though. >> she was asked if senator sanders has been tough enough on gun control leading to this exchange. >> no, not at all. this has gone on too long, and it's time the entire country stoot stood up against the nra. >> all the shouting in the world is not going to do what i would hope all of us wanted and that is keep guns out of hands of people who should not have those guns. >> some progressives said bernie sanders is not as strong on guns as he should be. he said i'm from a rural state of vermont where i respect the rights of hunters and others to defend themselves and hillary clinton saw that as one vulnerability. >> it's an interesting debate and watching it last night and i tweeted this a couple of times. obviously they know the questions coming their way. they all did a great job answering the obvious which, you know, you take for grant the. we've seen some other debates where the candidate has to know that question is coming and they stumble through the answer, so it seems as if nobody did any
harm to their campaign but we'll see if any movement. bernie sanders has already raised quite a bit of money since last night. >> and everybody wondering about joe biden. >> yeah. >> is there an opening there for him and the general consensus is obviously nobody really stumbled so what happens next? >> and they got five more to go on the democratic side and we are counting. meanwhile, something that caught our eye and our thoughts and prayers are with hayden panettiere. very popular actress. i just love her. i think she's a wonderful person and her reps are now confirming that she is seeking professional help for post-partum depression at at treatment center, the "nashville" actress welcomed her daughter kaya back in 2014. doctors say post-partum depression is often unrecognized and undertreated. the numbers are staggering. an estimated one in seven new mothers experience some form of post partum mood or anxiety disorder. according to the mayo clinic
post-partum depression can have a ripple effect even causing emotional strain and hayden is married to or engaged to a boxer, i'm sorry, i can't recall his name. >> klitschko. >> and he's been photographed a lot with their baby daughter and saw a picture of him recently on the beach with her, but, you know, it's very difficult to come out and allow your rep or even on your own to discuss these personal issue, but i think in this case, and she's not said. is it obviously the motive is to be honest and maybe to help other people. >> yeah, yeah. anyone who has seen it or had friends with this, this is no joke post-partum depression. >> serious. >> and very difficult to go through and it's honorable of her to come out publicly and there's people out there who say i'm not alone. let's talk about this and address it and get help. >> that she's actually seeking treatment for it speaks volumes and probably such a great press sglent we're thinking about her an everyone else who has a
similar issue. it's heartbreaking. >> meantime, you know, we put out that call for action, pink or swim. breast cancer awareness month and joined force with the avon foundation. can't show this video enough, tamron getting dunk on the plaza reaching our goal are dlaf 10,000. if we reach our goal to 50,000 at end of the month we all get dunked and you may get the chance to dunk us here on the plaza. in fact, we would like to think about this, if every one of you donates $1 we'll have several million in the kit toe fight breast cancer. >> in the kit? >> we've got a big jar in the back. >> all want to get dunk the. four of us want to sit on the bench and go in the drink. >> the thing is we all want to get dunked and that's true lit's part. i want to see willie geist in the one-piece yellow one. >> you can seep saying it.

sean austin has had many of plenty roles, probably never said die with him when he played mikey in "the gins" and cheered him on as rudy in the hit football movie and took him through a journey in middle earth when he played sam in the epic "lord of the rings" trilogy. >> now he's back in another football movie called "woodlawn" playing a chaplin on a desegregated teammate about how religion has the power to bring people together. >> you have three daughters. >> i do. >> and you would let two of the three wear the nose ring? >> i've got a movie. >> sean approached me. >> i was admiring your nose ring. >> you know what? >> i can't imagine that we would support the 10-year-old wearing it right now but i believe in personal expression. i just wouldn't like it. i wouldn't like it. >> same as roker. >> team roker. >> i'm always team roker. >> there you go. >> well said. >> team astin.
this movie is really inspirational. playing hank irwin, a real person. certain amount of pressure. here's a guy on the set and can you see him and talk with him. >> because he was the father of the film-makers. the directors wanted to tell their dad's story, and the stories that he told to them when they were kids. this is the civil rights era of birmingham after what everybody knows about, desegregation, getting kids to school. black kids and white kids did not want to do that and so this movie depicts a move we evangelism kind of swept the country for a little bit, the jesus freak movement, tied dye jesus on the cover of "life" magazine and billy graham was filling up the cotton bowl with 50,000 people and this one particular chaplain hank was part of that movement and felt inspired and called for that moment and went to that school and even though it's a public
school he called the football players to have a call of faith and undeniable listening to the people that were there that for them in that moment it was incredibly helpful and powerful of bringing their team and community together and i deed bringing, you know, the statement it was biggest football game. the big football game that's being depicted right there. that's a practice game. one of the big football games was the most heavily attended football game in alabama state history and that stands to this day. >> what was it about hank that's so special because he did what a lot of people couldn't do which was to bridge the gap, busing coming in, acrimony and hatred. what was it about this message that hit these guys? >> first, i would say that the moment was ready. people were ready. they were open for it. they needed something. it's not unlike in ferguson or baltimore or something like that where these problems, i mean, it's out of the news this week but it won't be out of the news for long because those issues are not settled yet and when it happens everybody starts looking
around like what can we do? you know, i don't personally need to push a christian faith message on the country, but for these people it worked, and so for hank he was just guileless and went in and spoke from his heart and he said, hey, it doesn't have to be like this. you don't have to keep fighting or keep i was yourself based on your thinking. can you use christ and your faith in christ to do that. a very powerful message and the film-makers believe in that message today and as an actor i'm happy to tell that story. >> and a lot of people are going to the faith-based movies. >> yes or no, "goonies" sequel. >> some day, i hope. >> are you in? >> if they want me. >> the time has come. >> you heard that from al roker. >> steven spielberg, do it! get on it! make "goonies 2." >> thanks very much.

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 kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. how did it become absent-mindedly to snacking? eating one after the next? we are a creamy cheese that still believes in savoring our food. the laughing cow. reinvent snacking. they are two of hollywood's rising stars and you know mia from her role in the oscar nominated film "the kids are all right" and her breakout per performance of alice in tim

passion for gothic fiction and the themes of it, you know, at the time that it came around it was a very rebellious genre. it was a way of expressing things about society that people weren't talking about. sexuality and -- and the fear of death, and i think all of those things are bound up in gothic romance as a genre. >> the second time you two have worked together and the last one was "gothic vampires." . can we get you together in a romantic comedy. >> or a zombie thing. >> keep progressing through the apocalyptic thing. >> when you do a horror film you have to have a way to release in between takes. you're a classically trained ballerina, right in. >> and tom, videos of you dancing. do you have dance-offs in breaks? >> we didn't, but there was

>> i apologize for holding you up. i was making some last-minute petition in conversation with police commissioner ramsey. we are here today to make a significant public safety announcement. i'll have a few comments a little later on. but here obviously with police commissioner ramsey, deputy commissioner joyce and chief of staff and deputy mayor for public safety, rick ellison. i do want to recognize, before i turn the podium over, clay arbiser is here with us, first chief of staff for our administration eight years ago. with that, ladies and gentlemen, police commissioner charles ramsey. >> thank you, mayor. if i may -- [ applause ]
i would like chris frazier, come on up here. i guess i'm here to announce something that's become the worst kept secret in the city of philadelphia. that is that i do plan to retire effective first of the year. my last day will be january 7th, which happens to also be my anniversary date for being sworn in the same day as mayor nutter. i want to thank mayor nutter. i came out of retirement to come to philadelphia and work for him. and i'm honored to be able to leave with him as well. eight years is a long time. i'm in my 47th year of policing,
which is, you know, quite a bit. quite a bit. 30 years in chicago, nine as chief in d.c. and then here in philadelphia. it's been a good ride. i've been blessed. i have had the honor of serving in three great departments. i've had the honor of serving as president of major city chiefs, police executive research forum, president task force. i really had a blessed career. i want to thank all the citizens of philadelphia, all the community organizations that really get out there every single day and help us make the streets safer, the men and women of the philadelphia police department. a leader is only as good as the people working for them. we have an outstanding group of individuals in our department. and i also want to thank all of you in the media. i think you've been fair. not always like reading what i read or hearing what i hear, but it is what it is. and i have to say that you have
been fair. and i appreciate it. because, when it's all said and done, that's all you can expect and that's all you can ask for. you're a good group of people. and i think you do the city a very, very well when you do report on what's going on. so i ask this young man to come forward, chris frazier has been my right arm from the very beginning. getting me around town and watching my back and doing all the things that he does on a regular basis and we have become very, very good friends. of course, nola joyce, we worked together in chicago, washington, d.c. and now in philadelphia and really has made a world of difference in my ability to be able to take departments places where they need to go.
i want to thank chief of staff, deputy mayor and what is it that you don't do? is there anything at all? >> other duties. >> other duties as assigned. solid supporter. and been there throughout. i could go on and on naming people. i won't do that. like everything else, you wind up leaving people out. i just want to thank everyone for giving me the opportunity to serve in this great city. thank you very much. commissioner ramsey, thank you very, very much. i now get the opportunity to talk about you just a little bit. but certainly from the bottom of my heart, thank you for an incredible level of service and, as you mentioned, you're still here. he's not going anywhere. and will be here for a couple months. i do want to reflect a little
bit on how the commissioner came to us and some of you certainly know this story very, very well. i did not know and had pretty much not ever heard of chuck ramsey back in 2007. around about this time, when a friend who i had known for many years in kind of a previous life, told me that the person that would probably best suit philadelphia was a guy named charles ramsey, most recently out of washington, d.c. and i had won the democratic primary that may in 2007 and about this time, somewhere in the september, october time period in 2007, i went to
washington to meet this person, whom i never met before and didn't know what he looked like. we found each other in union station, had dinner at b. smith's restaurant for a few hours. and then i took the last train out of d.c., came back to philadelphia, had a very positive feeling. i did interview another seven or eight folks outside the department, about a dozen or so inside the department. but, again, obviously, as you all know, some time in, i guess, december or so of 2007, made the announcement out in west philadelphia that charles ramsey was coming to our city. when i asked him to come, the reason was because he had a very strong record in washington, d.c. and, of course, chicago, his hometown before that.
and i understood what he was all about. and he understood my vision for the city. the situation in philadelphia at the time, and dramatic uptick of a few years prior to 2007, uptick in homicides and part one crime in '04, '05, '06, '07, homicide rate was 391 in '07. the number against which we judged our own performance over the last seven years. within one month on the job, again, many of you may recall right here where on inauguration day, pretty much the entire government was sworn in and we announced that we were -- i asked police commissioner to give me a report. within 30 days of how we would change law enforcement, change policing and make philadelphia a safer city.
