three days with dry conditions in the forecast. there's a look. neighborhood by neighborhood, the forecast high temperature. the low 80s compared to tomorrow where we get to the upper 80s. we do start to warm things up. 89 on monday for philadelphia, and 87 in the lehigh valley. we'll get to the ten-day in a few minutes. >> the white house shakeup truly takes effect tomorrow when john kelly takes over from reince priebus as chief of staff. priebus resigned last week after serving just six months. it was the shortest stint ever for a white house chief of staff. last week, new communications director anthony scaramucci made disparaging remarks about him, using vulgar language in an interview. kelly moves over from heading homeland security, as nicolle wallace explains, kelly's combat experience may bring new structure to president trump's team if he's given enough authority. >> if the president's behavior goes unchanged, then it suggests that no staff change can improve
7:49 am
things for his white house. >> kelly is in line with the president's positions on terrorism and immigration. in philadelphia this weekend, supporters of obamacare are not resting even after the push to repeal the law failed in congress this past week. activists held a rally yesterday just outside of pennsylvania pat toomey's officer in old city. they have been doing this periodically throughout the summer. they call on republicans to reject any effort to repeal the foordable care act. >> yesterday in burlington, cory booker held a public discussion on health care. the democrat says he's pleased that the senate rejected the aca repeal bill. >> we have a lot of work to do, but i think if anything from listening to the voices of new jersey today, literally, a young man saying his father died before the affordable care act because he couldn't get preventative care and support for his cancer. that can never come back to the united states of america.
7:50 am
>> three gop senators crossed party lines to vote down the bill to repeal obamacare. obamacare and the failure to repeal it will be one of the top issues on "meet the press" this morning. joining me now for a preview is moderator of "meet the press," chuck todd. good morning, chuck. >> good morning, rosemary. >> we'll get to obamacare and the fact it didn't get repealed in a moment, but first, let's talk about the shakeup. another high-profile staff shakeup in the white house. john kelly in as chief of. reince priebus out. you'll sit down with the president's former campaign manager, corey lewandowski. what can we expect from kelly in terms of his leadership stipe? is this somebody who can steady the ship? >> he's got all the skills and tools to do that. all the skills in the world to do that. a retired four-star general. even his short stint in the department of homeland security as a manager and leader there, he's gotten high marks. people who have works for him for years are very loyal to him.
7:51 am
there's no doubt he has the ability to turn an organization around, instill some discipline. but ultimately, he can't succeed if the president doesn't give him that authority. does he make the rest of the white house staff report to john kelly? does he allow everything to run through the chief of staff, as it works in most white houses? or does he continue to sort of have this structure where everything is centered in the oval office? and if he gives kelly some room there, even for a short period of time, he has an opportunity to create a system there that might actually work better for the president. but history says differently. he went through three campaign managers on the campaign. he's on his second chief of staff, so history says donald trump isn't comfortable ceding authority to somebody else for long stretches of time. i think short term, he'll give some -- pay some deference to
7:52 am
the former four-star general, but long term, i'm skeptical. >> we'll have to see how it plays out. speaking of health care reform, obviously another big issue you'll talk about thus morning. you'll talk to health secretary tom price. where do he, the president, and the gop go from here after the praumshed repeal of obamacare failed in the senate this week? >> i think that's an open question the president is still tweeting this morning and yesterday, trying to get senate republicans to come back and try one more time, do anything. there's a bill out there that has nothing to do with repeal and replace that would basically change obamacare from being a federally administered policy to a more state-based administered policy. maybe there are the votes for that. who knows. some bi0 work to repair obamacare is out there. but what about the president and what about hh? are they now motivated to do what they can to make this all work, or are they interested in trying to undermine it in order
7:53 am
to force a change down the road? that's among the questions i have for the hhs secretary this morning. >> as always, chuck, thanks for being with us. >> thanks. chuck will be talking about the new developments in the latest shakeups in the white house on "meet the press" this morning. that comes your way at 10:30 right here.
