>> his day began with a welcoming ceremony at the white house. norah o'donnell is there to begin our live coverage. norah, good morning. it is an exciting morning. >> reporter: it is. i'm on the south lawn of the white house. they are expecting between 15,000 and 20,000 people all on the president's lawn to hear the pope speak here. and pope francis already got a very special welcome from the president at joint base andrews outside of washington when he arrived yesterday for his five-day u.s. visit. now after this morning's ceremony here at the white house, we are going to see the pope ride in his popemobile through the streets of the capitol and we have our correspondents spread all over washington. jan crawford is along the parade route just south of the white house, jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. you can almost feel the excitement here. people have come from across the country just to be here. they started lining up yesterday afternoon. many of them camped out
overnight just to try to get a good spot along the parade route and by the time it starts, this crowd is expected to grow by tens of thousands. there were cheers as pope francis stepped off the plane and taking off his hat in the windy weather. in a rare honor president obama and his family were there to greet him, along with biden's and a thousand on-lookers chanting welcome to the usa. >> welcome to the usa. >> reporter: the holy father met privately with the president before leaving the airport in a modest fiat, all smiles, through the open windows. he was greeted by more crowds and children when he arrived at this ceremony, his home for the next two days. the more formal red carpet will be rolled out this morning. at 9:00 a.m., president obama will welcome the holy father to the white house south lawn where
will hear the alternate argentina-important pontiff deliver his first address in the united states. at 11:00, the pope hopes in his popemobile for a short parade and tens of thousands hoping to catch a glimpse. a half hour later, the pope will lead u.s. prayer with bishops at cathedral and head to the shrine, the largest roman catholic church in north america. the pope will deliver mass before a crowd of as many as 30,000, and elevate a franciscan mosque, the firs on u.s. soil. the papal festives will continue tonight. not on the bill, the hope, himself, the 78-year-old pope will be back at the vatican embassy.
it is really exciting here at the white house with these tens of thousands of people. it's going to be a rare occasion that actually that the president meets with the pope in the oval office parade. now after the pope's white house visit and parade, he is going to meet with about 300 american bishops and in the afternoon francis will celebrate mass. a massive security presence will follow him at every stop and jeff pegues is outside where the pope is staying during his visit to washington. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: norah, good morning. the crowds are here waiting for the pope to emerge and waiting for him to come underneath the vatican flag on his way to the white house. security is tight here but we expect it to ramp up as his motorcade leaves. that is why the homeland security department has given it a special designation and puts it on par with a super bowl or a presidential inauguration.
the secret service is under true test and will be the parade in d.c. later this morning. it's scheduled to happen after the pope's visit to the white house and where we will see the popemobile for the first time. it will travel along a parade route between the ellipse and a portion of the national mall. a couple of hundred thousands people are expected to line the parade route. as you know, the pope is known for his unpredictable when it comes to dealing with crowds. he likes to mingle with the crowds and secret service says it is prepared for that and we have been told numerous times over the last several days that there is no known credible threat to the pope during his visit to the u.s. >> reporter: that is good to hear. jeff, thank you so much. we should note that security operation will move into high gear when the pope leaves for the white house shortly. he will have a private meeting with president obama in the oval office after this morning's ceremony and major garrett is on the north lawn of the white house with why these world leaders may have a lot in common. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
pope francis arrives to find at least, in part, by his humility also an instrument of change within the church and an international celebrity and a kind of pope in the past certainly haven't been. president obama knows a thing or two about change and celebrity and it's actually these topics that the two have discussed in private, the burdens of dealing with celebrity and change. but the two world leaders share something else. the president and pope francis met tuesday at an air base synonymous with american prestige and power. far away from the poor corners of buenos aires or the south side where abram first organized in chicago. one unlikely thread? the catholic church. >> abram got bun of his first paychecks when the roman catholic church when he was an organizer in chicago. both the pope and the president understand community organizing since they have that in common.
shifted vatican emphasis from policing and social issues to caring for the poor on the planet and a issue the president has embraced and found to applaud. >> i touch on his call to relieve suffering and to show mercy and compassion to the most vulnerable. as pope francis made clear in his incycle cal this morning, taking a stand against climate change is a moral obligation. >> reporter: >> all presidents have liked to quote the pope and say they are on the pope's side. so president obama is in a long political tradition, and he happens to have a pope in francis who agrees with him on some central issues. >> reporter: the white house is weary of charges of politicizing the pope's visit and know that is unavoidable so the president
the pope on which issues they agree and inequality and immigration and climate change. >> repoter: we will see some of that embrace later today. we will bring you a cbs news special report on the pope's visit to the white house at 8:45 eastern and 7:45 central. now back to studio 57 in new york. this morning, vice president joe biden poses a new threat to hillary clinton in the democratic race even though he is still considering whether to run. democrats in a new bloomberg poll give clinton an edge with 33% of the vote but the vice president got a strong boost, a quarter of democrats favor him. senator bernie sanders is at 24%. the fbi reportedly recovered personal and work-related e-mails from hillary clinton's private e-mail server and they were thought to have been deleted. clinton's use of the serve irwhile secretary of state has been under scrutiny since march when a house committee tried to determine whether she turned
over all of her work-related e-mails. nancy cordes is in washington, d.c. with this story. >> reporter: clinton's lawyer told that committee months ago that there was no point in handing over her server because it was, quote, blank. but the federal investigators who have the server now, have reportedly discovered it isn't blank after all. >> thank you. >> reporter: the fbi has been able to make clinton's once deleted e-mails reappear. a new report by bloomberg says investigators examining clinton's private server are in the process of sorting messages sent during her time as secretary of state. next, they will determine which e-mails were official state department business and, if any, were classified. clinton's spokesman told cbs news last night, we have kroopted cooperated to date and will continue to do so. >> she is campaigning to be the first woman president of the united states! >> reporter: the state department revealed tuesday that it first reached out to clinton aides last summer when the
process of responding to the congressional document requests and it said it had relatively few e-mails records to the former secretary of state. on "face the nation" last sunday, clinton replied that request was routine. >> when we asked if the state department had e-mails, i said i will go through them again and we provided all of them and more than 90% were already in the system. >> reporter: the e-mail news came as clinton revealed her long-awaited stance on the keystone keystone exxonmobil keystone pipeline. >> i think we look at the pipeline as a distraction from the important work we have to do to combat climate change and, unfortunately, from my perspective, one that interferes with our ability to move forward to deal with all of the other issues. therefore, i oppose is. >> reporter: back on the e-mails.
intelligence officials have long argued that sensitive state department material, whether classified or not, should not have been sitting on clinton's home server. the fbi's probe into her e-mail server is expected to take, charlie, several more months. yogi berra was one of baseball's greatest. this morning, the league and fans are remembering the life of the hall of fame catcher. he died tuesday at the age of 90. berra was a legendary yankee known for his accomplishments on the field but he had a charming humor that captivated fans for jen races. >> i said it's not over until it's over. >> reporter: yogi berra has a quick qitwit and even quicker bat. his spin on the english language, combined with his brilliant play on the field that endeared him to fans and even presidents. >> we may be lost but we are making good time. >> when you come to a fork in the road, take it. >> a high drive!
that's trouble! it's an even up ball game. >> reporter: berra played the game big, despite standing only 5'8" tall. he was an integral part of some of the greatest yankees team ever assembled, playing alongside joe dimaggio and mickey mantle. berra had as many worlts ringsd series rings as he did fingers. >> strike three! a no-hitter! >> reporter: this was his iconic leap into pitcher don larsen's arms after larssen pitched a perfect game in the 1956 world series. his exuberance burned into the american memory. there is so many yogiisms here. >> reporter: in 1998, i spoke with the hall of fame catcher for my pbs program. >> it's deja vu all over again. >> that is when maris and mantle hit the home runs back-to-back. >> reporter: it was hard to have a conversation with anyone. there were too many people talking. 90% of the game is like that. >> right. >> reporter: you finish them.
i'll tell the first half. you can observe a lot of -- >> by watching. you don't have to be a manager either. you do it by playing. >> reporter: the future ain't. >> what it used to be. >> reporter: it ain't over until it's over. after meeting the pope you were roman catholic or are roman catholic and you said who says he tries to go to mass once a week. berra reported that the pope said, hello, yogi! and you replied? hole, pope! overnight, the yankees remembered berra saying we are deeply saddened by the loss of a legend and an american hero! >> boy, charlie youwere cracking up. it was interesting watching you both crack up. everyone who said they knew him said he was a gentleman and a class act. >> he would have a museum and i would visit him there. an extraordinary sense of a baseball hero who became an american hero.
>> what an extraordinary life. supervisory board of volkswagen is reportedly meeting today to discuss a massive cheat scandal own pollution tests. members are hearing directly from the vw chief executive and they want to know what he knew and when he knew it. the american auto giant faces a class action lawsuit seeking more than $1 billion in damages. the company recently admitted that 11 million diesel cars contained devices to cheat emissions tests in the united states and other countries. the board could vote on the ceo's future with the company. this morning, a public backlash has forced a change in a life saving prescription drug. last month, turing pharmaceuticals raised daraprim from $13.50 to $750.
price would be but he agreed to bring it down. >> everybody is waiting to hear what the figure is. china's president continues his first official trip to the united states. xi jinping told the seattle audience last night his country wants to help fight cyber crime. he says china is a victim of the hacking and tomorrow he heads to the white house and he could face tough questions when the talks turn to data breaches. norah spoke with a key player in the administration strategy about that. norah? >> reporter: that's right. imagine that. the president is meeting with the pope here today and then he is meeting with the chinese president xi jinping tomorrow. one cabinet member is sure to keep a close eye on the talks between president obama and the president of china is the treasure secretary jack rew. why? because among his responsibilities are imposing sanctions when the u.s. voices displeasure with another country. we talked to secretary lew and we asked him about china and cyber attacks against u.s.
president xi just spoke with weijia jiang now here's a look and said the following. is that a true statement? >> look. our senses is that there has been the theft of trade secrets emanating from china. we have said that in many different ways. and taken some actions to believe. but our view is that american businesses need to know that their trade secrets there and intellectual property isn't going to be stolen and we are serious about taking action. >> reporter: the united states has accused china of theft of commercial secrets. why wouldn't you impose sanctions? you have that power. >> the sanctions would have to be imposed on individuals or organizations where you can make the direct link to the actions that have been taken. so i'm not going to get ahead of where the process is. we take it very, very seriously. it's like a law enforcement function. it's an enforcement function and the people who work on it build
very detailed records. >> reporter: imagine that diplomatic dance and more of my conversation with secretary lew including questions about the chinese economy and changes on our currency here at home. that will all be later in the broadcast. now pope francis is in the united states with a message for americans. ahead, a closer look at what the announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by

"the washington post" says the man in charge of building a fight against isis is resigning. retired marine general john
allen coordinated a coalition of 62 nations to ballots the militants. "the post" says he was frustrated by the pentagon reluctance to provide more help. bloomberg reports on the nfl getting permission to use drones to shoot documentaries and tv segments. the first major sports league to receive such permission from the faa. nfl films still will not be allowed to use the drones on gameday. teams like the giants and the cowboys have used them for practice, but that is not allowed either without federal permission. the "los angeles times" reports on a new effort to stem the city's surge in homelessness. lawmakers want to declare a state of emergency, up to $100 million to subsidize housing and keep winter shelters open two months longer. 26,000 people are homeless in los angeles and up 12% in two years. we continue our coverage of
pope francis in america with norah at the white house. norah? >> reporter: thank you, gayle. pope francis will celebrate his first mass in the united states and that is at the ba sill calba silica of the national nine. chip reid is here to show us what to expect this afternoon. chip, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning. you know, around here, most people simply call it the shrine and it is a beautiful building. let me step aside here so you can take a look for yourself. it is the largest roman catholic church in america and as you can see in front of the shrine, there are rows and rows and rows of chairs. in fact, they are expecting about 25,000 people here this afternoon to see and hear the pope celebrate mass and he'll be doing this one in his native language, spanish. a high point of the mass will be when he elevates one person to sainthood who was a missionary in what is now california in the 1700s.
by the way, if you think this is big, this is tiny compared to what is going to happen this weekend in philadelphia when he celebrates a mass that is expected to attract between 1 million and 2 million people. norah? >> reporter: chip, thank you so much. let's go back now to charlie. the spanish missionaries rise to st. hood reflects the important rols of spanish speaking catholics in this country who make up 34% of catholics in the united states and more than 16 million of them were born here. another 14 million are immigrants. thomts rosica is at the basilica of the national shrine of the national conception in washington. father, good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: tell us what you think the pope hopes to accomplish with his visit to the white house and his visit to congress. >> pope francis has come to the united states as a pastor.
he has come to strengthen his brothers, first of all, to the bishops of this country but come to visit to the people of this vast land as a shepherd, as a pastor. of course, with every message he brings us, the message is rooted in the gospel. he is going to speak, most certainly, of the two documents that have really marked his pontiff to this moment. that is the gospel of joy what we call like the playbook or the lexicon which come his ideas and pastoral thrust and also refer to one that was released in june that speaks about the care of our common home. ecology but not just ecology of nature, ecology of the human person. in each of the places, he is going to visit, there will be echoes of those themes and he'll play close attention to those hosting him. here at the basilica behind me, this beautiful church and the
up, he is going to proclaim first cannonization of a father, a missionary from the 17th century who brought the gospel to this country and who did much good against so many odds, including physical health and suffering in the times in which he was living, and to raise up a saint in the model, especially hispanic saint for this country, where this country is highly significant because of the large numbers of hispanic people that make up our country. >> as you know, there is some small controversy about that because he they say he converted natives and somehow that did something to distinguish their culture. >> you have to be careful when we judge a past event or a person who lives several hundred years ago to our own lenses. cannonization and bu ateautification do not blame someone without
declarations of holiness. and it's an invitation to all of us to become holy as these people were holy. >> why is it important? >> i think we should be very careful in terms of the judgments we are passing on him. there were difficulties, there were challenges, but he did immense good in bringing the gospel to these shores. >> why is it important to have this cannonization in the united states? >> it's very important, because most of the time, cannonizations are done in rome at the vatican and now that the bishop of rome has come to us and to proclaim this person as a saint, not just a novelty, but it's the fact that he is bringing this to us so we can celebrate him and not everybody can go to rome for a cannonization. many more can experience it here in washington. the fact it's taking place here in the capital of this country, there is a statue of him in the capital rotunda. his memory lives among many
people and especially among the fran siscans who live here. let me bring in norah o'donnell. >> reporter: hi, father. i know this morning we are going to hear pope francis give some remarks and they are going to be in english. is it difficult to him to speak in english? what will we hear? >> he speaks with an accent, like anyone from a foreign country might speak with an accent. i know he has practiced english and i think we will be pleasantly surprised with the progress he has made and he's had several opportunities over the past year to practice or test out that english when he was in the philippines and in asia and several other times. the brief he will give is a brief talk at the white house. i think he'll be very happy when he see the crowd and the welcome given to him. remember, at 78 years old, to
did yesterday, there must be some sense of wonderment and awe at the welcome reserved for him and the welcome he is going to experience today on the south lawn of the white house and also in the oval office with the president. >> that is just the beginning of the welcome he is going to receive here. thank you very much, father thomas rosica. good to see you. we are getting a close look at the unusual items that don't fly with the tsa. kris van cleave is in washington. >> from nunchucks to who doesn't want to leave home without their cleaver? the unusual things people try to bring through an airport security checkpoint. we will show them to you coming up on "cbs this morning."." >> if you're heading off to work, leave your cleaver at home. set your dvr so you can watch "cbs this morning" any time you'd like. we will the right back. >> pope francis' plane touched down in washington today at 4:00 p.m. fourp 4:00 p.m.

. the crowds are gathering in washington to see pope francis when he drives by in the popemobile. federal officials are showing off some surprising dangers hideing in carry-on baggage. the tsa on track to set a record number of guns it has confa sqated confiscated across the u.s. this past year. >> reporter: most of us know you can only bring small liquids in the u.s. airports and most of us take our shoes off but you'd be surprised what some people thought they could bring past security. it took just two days to fill this table full of prohibited items passengers tried to bring
through tsa checkpoints at dulles airport outside of washington, d.c. ninja throwing guns and nunchucks among the items. this clearly could be a weapon. >> it is baffling. >> reporter: scott johnson is the federal security director at delless. >> i'll ask a passenger directly to the face, do you have anything prohibit in the bag? they will say no. we open up the bag and they have guns and nunchucks in there and i laugh because you think you can bring these on. >> reporter: women's purses like these have been stacking up and the clasp referable brass knuckles which means it won't fly as a carry-on and neither about a fake hand grenade. some of the biggest head-scratchers end up on the tsa instagram feed with more than 336,000 followers it's an attempt to get the word out what about not to bring.
officers stopped 1,900 nationwide and 18 at dulles alone. >> we actually caught a 357 magnum out here at the checkpoint. yesterday, we caught 63 rounds of ammunition in the bag. >> reporter: but despite those successes, there remains concern about what is not being caught after details of an inspector general report leaked that officers at tsa checkpoints failed 67 of 70 tests allowing undercover agents to repeatedly bring potential weapons through checkpoints. douglas kidd is with the national association of airline passengers, a group critical of the tsa. >> what i think their biggest failure is not looking at the whole picture of airport security, because if anything is going to be a real danger to us, it's not going to come through the checkpoint, it's going to come around the checkpoint. >> reporter: bringing a firearm or concealing a knife or weapon can prompt criminal charges and significant fines. one other item left at checkpoints that adds up.
last year, nearly 700,000 dollars in loose change was left at airports and the tsa gets to keep that to spend on security. >> i would say that is money well spent after that report. what do you say, charlie, when someone forgets their cleaver? i thought i left it in the kitchen? >> yes! what were you going to do with that cleaver? >> what were you going to do? thank you, chris. steven colbert said he forget to pick up pope francis from the airport. he is one late night comic

weight of outside expectations. president obama told the pope that he learned during his presidency that people can burn with hope and enthusiasm, but can quickly turn either disappointed or indifferent. he told the pope he hoped that would not happen to him. the pope told the president the papacy has its share of politics internal and external and own kind of celebrity before you he told the president he leans on his humility and returns as often as we to the poor to keep himself grounded. it was this quiet insight from pope francis that touched president obama deeply and part of his emotional bond with his very different kind of pontiff. >> reporter: we will hear the president speak about that today before the pope speaks. we should also note that aaa has warned d.c. drivers that today's traffic would be gridlock. jan crawford is south of the white house where i know huge crowds are already waiting for jan, how is it going there. >> reporter: you can see the
excitement and people gathered here since late yesterday afternoon as the anticipation starts to build. this right here is the parade where the pope is going to be coming after he meets with the president. after he meets with the president, he is going to hop in this popemobile and cruise down $17 street and hit constitution and ride by the national mall and drive back to the white house. it is the only event here in washington people can attend without a ticket. like i said they started lining up overnight and coming across the country. i talked to people who came from albuquerque, orlando, washington state. the roads around here are closed and so are dozens of others in the city and making matters worse, if you believe this, there is a major league baseball game here between the nats and orioles and a concert downtown by ed sheeran. >> reporter: it is busy here in washington. jan, thank you so much. we will bring you a cbs news
visit to the white house at 8:45 a.m. eastern and 7:45 central. the fbi is sorting through more e-mails from hillary clinton that were thought to be gone forever. bloomberg reports it is unclear how many deleted e-mails the fbi recovered. clinton servers were reportedly wiped after aides shifted through them. >> on sunday's "face the nation" hillary clinton repeated her decision to turn over thousands of work-related e-mails were in response to a routine records request. but on tuesday, the state department described it dirnl. it says in the process of responding to congressional requests regarding benghazi, state department officials recognized that it had access to relatively few e-mail records from former secretary clinton. the state department also said that it contacted clinton at least three months before the agency asked three of her predecessors to provide e-mails as well. clinton said all i know is that
they sent the same letter to everybody. that is my understanding. that news is overshadowing her announcement she opposes the keystone exxonmobil pipeline. also talked about getting international partners involved. it was a challenge the president faced at climate negotiations in denmark a few years ago. the president said copenhagen was a disorganized mess. i literally had to rescue the entire enterprise by crashing a meeting and strong-arming them into come up with at least a document that could build some consensus going into the future. >> that doesn't sound pleasant. >> that wasn't the way it was. it was this way. >> that's right. grammy winner don henley here in studio 57. after more than 40 years with the eagles, he is giving fans a new sound. ahead, how hi news album is also

they have to open up their markets to competition and they have to led the exchange rate go up and down when market forces determine. >> reporter: but they are not doing that. >> i think if you look at over the last several years, they have moved in the right direction. what we saw in the last several weeks was kind of a question of whether or not they are changing direction. they have restated their intent to have market forces play a stronger role. they have agreed to refrain from competitive devaluation and ultimate it has to be proven from the policy steps taken, not just the commitments at the meeting. >> reporter: the 10 dollar bill. you said there is a woman on the 10 dollar bill? >> what i said is we are going to put a woman on our currency. we are looking at the 10 dollar bill which is the next bill we are going to be issuing and we have spent the summer listening to the american people and i have to say i'm pleased how many people we have heard from. >> reporter: when does that decision get made?
going to have to pull these pieces together and make. but by the end of the year. >> reporter: by the end of the year. . are you saying it might go just beyond the 10 dollar bill? there may also be a woman on the 5 dollar bill and other bills? >> what i'm saying as we look at the series of bills that will come out with new security features, our fundamental responsibility is to make sure our money is safe, that it can't be counterfeited easily. the reason we picked the 10 dollar bill is the next bill that requires updating but, you know, we have multiple bills that are going on to be redesigned and one of the things that has come out of this conversation -- >> reporter: there are women across the world cheering! just as you said that. >> one of the things that has come out of this conversation is very few people know what is on the back of any of our bills. >> reporter: so you're going to but pem on the back after bill? >> i'm saying we are going to tell the story of american democracy as we unveil the new series of bills and women will be a prominent part of that.
kind of a big deal, right? they are not only looking at the front of the 10 dollar bill and other currency but the back whether they could put images on the back. i think it's exciting when we hear that decision in the next couple of months. >> i like how you say will we be on the 5 dollar bill too? he raiseded a very good point. i have no idea what is on the back of the 10. i have to look. what is it? >> exactly. thanks, guys. >> i think it's interesting to decide what you want to put on your currency. one of the things of being president. >> thank you, norah. a former buddhist monk is changing the way millions think about meditation by using your phone. andy puddicombe is his name and he's in our green room sitting next to, hello, don henley! we see you there! they are in a deep conversation but they are in the green room together. >> maybe they are in meditation? the world's most scuffle people and companies are making room for his message.

us and killed a couple of friends and injured a lot of people. it left me with a lot of questions and a mind that was very restless and very easily overwhelmed. for me, the answer to that was to go away and become a buddhist among monk. >> you know people can do that through meditation? >> absolutely. i realized a monk, you don't need to go off to the him layalayas and shave your head. >> these are like ten-minute sessions? >> exactly. >> how often do you expect people will use it during the day and when? >> more often than not, we know people get using it, they are using it about ten minutes a day and normally in the morning. >> one time a day? >> one time a day. there are reminders throughout the day to come back to that quietness of mind and those are little minute breaks throughout
>> so meditation, most people think meditation is about calming and quieting the mind and that is more of, i say more of a by-product of meditation. meditation is about clarity and calm comes as a result of that. it's really sort of by focusing the mind on one thing. normally, we are distracted with all of the business of mind. we are able sense the mind and focus it and we feel more calm and more clear as a result of this. >> it's turned out to be a business for you? >> it has. i think of it as a mission and nothing i set out with commercial intent. commercial kind of success has come along with it and that is wonderful because it allows us to be able to fulfill our mission. >> good to have you here. >> thank you so much for having me in. thank you. >> very nice to meet you. >> thank you. in about 20 minutes, the white house welcomes ceremony

take a picture of this >> reporter: "cass county" is don henley's first selling album in 15 years. good to see you. >> good to be here. >> why did it take you another 15 years to create another solo album? >> because the eagles never stopped touring. >> oh, that's right. >> and because i have three teenagers i spend time at home with when i'm not touring. i've never been terrible prolific. i write in the spaces in between but the eagles are my first priority, or have been. so i've been doing it in my spare time. >> reporter: the eagles are all on good terms with each other? >> yes, we are. >> good. >> yeah. >> you talked about this new music which i have to say congratulations. i love country music and i never thought of don help henry as country music but you've work on this album five years? >> some could be in the new category they call americana and
it blues and doesn't fit in any particular box or genre but it leans towards texas. >> it leans toward country? >> i am are from lyndon, texas, the county seat of cass county and only about 30,000 people in the entire county. the median family income is $28,5:00$28, $28,500 and it's a rural place. >> you wanted to tell the story small downtown living? >> it was an extraordinary place to grow up and i had a lot of support from my parents and the people who live there. i just wanted to give a nod to my hometown and as they don't get much attention down there. >> good for you. you collaborate with dolly parton and mick jagger. you said i've written a song about my hometown, would you join me? >> something like that. sometimes we have to go through channels. >> yes.

but this album is dealing with the places where we come from. i think all of us have conflicting feelings sometimes about where we come from. you know? we sort of have a love/hate relationship with the place we spent our formative years. i know i do. i'm trying to figure out my hometown and the changes that happened there and the difference between the way it was then and the way it is now. >> as thomas wolf says you can never go home but you went home again. >> i've been involved with civic affairs in my hometown the last 25 years. you can go home again. you don't necessarily stay! >> take a look at this. this is you and stephen colbert about donald trump. here it is. you don't have to be right donald all the time
empires rise and empires fall stick around here long enough you see it all >> you just want him to respond, don't you, don henley? >> that spontaneous that came out of my mouth. i had a wonderful high school teacher in england taught 50 years and talked to us about the deadly sins and pride was one of them. and i think is there a fine line between pride and arrogance. >> where is donald on that line? >> over the line. between pride, a little pride is a good thing, but when it gets over into arrogance and huberus and you're in trouble, i think. i thought that song was an appropriate place to perhaps give a little reminder. >> watch out. you'll be getting a tweet. >> fine. actually, i don't tweet.
i don't do facebook. i don't do any social media, so i'm fine. >> listen. you were one of the most famous rock stars but they say you don't like the limelight. is that true? >> i've never particularly xrvel comfortable in the limelight. i got three children. i like to keep them away from the limelight. i really live a very normal life in dallas, texas. i go to the supermarket and push the cart around, i gas up the cars, i mow the lawn, you know? i mean, i -- but i can't escape my music, you know? you really haven't lived until you heard "did heesparado" while staring at the vegetables in the vegetable department. >> i love this song. there it is, too. thank you, don henley. >> thank you for having me. >> a pleasure to meet you. "cass county" goes on sale and vinyl goes on sell on friday! friday!
i'm charlie rose with gayle king in new york. the pope is about to make the first speech of his historic visit to the united states. president obama is holding a white house ceremony for the pope in a few minutes. they will both address a crowd of more than 15,000 people. >> a welcoming ceremony is the very first stop in a very busy day for the pope. norah o'donnell is on the south lawn where the crowd gathered early this morning. >> reporter: it is a spectacular morning here at the white house. the sun is shining, and as you mentioned there are tens of thousands of people on what essentially is the president's front lawn to see pope francis. he's only the third pope to visit the white house. he spent the night at the
that's where we find jeff. jeff? >> reporter: i'll echo what you said. beautiful day here. nice and cool. in front of the mission there is a crowd of local students. they are enthusiastically awaiting for the pope to emerge from the mission where he spent the night. they are waiting for him to emerge from the doors that are underneath the vatican flag. the motorcade is in place ready to go as you mentioned he's heading over to the white house for the start of what will be a very busy day for him and there are the concerns, of course, about security. there is this large security apparatus in place. but, again, as we've been told over the last several days there are no known credible threats to the pope's visit. the secret service says it is prepared. >> reporter: all right, jeff, thank you very much. a bit of a delay here.
francis will go out into his popemobile to visit the people of washington. thousands are already lined up waiting. jan crawford is along the parade route south of the white house. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. excitement is building. this crowd has been gathering p.m. many of these people overnight all hoping to get a glimpse of the pope. some people came from across the country including at the resanta maria at the nez. i under you're from orlando, florida. >> yes, i flew in at 11:00 p.m. last night. >> reporter: you camped out >> i've been here since midnight. >> reporter: why did you go through so much trouble flying up from orlando? >> it's a chance of a lifetime. see him here or in rome. this is a lot closer. i hope to shake his hand. tell him we love him. >> reporter: what would you say if you could say anything to the pope?
>> that's what we would say. i love you pope francis. >> reporter: this is an exciting moment. hours waiting in line. many people camping out overnight. he should be here in another hour or so, nor swra. >> reporter: looks very exciting there. we should note before the pope leaves the white house we'll meet with president obama. they will sit down together in an oval office for a meeting that's expected to be 45 minutes long. two men have met face to face before. major garrett is at the white house with me but on the other side, major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. when the president met pope francis at the vatican in 2014 they talked about a lot of issues, social issues. but the president and the pope talked about some big global concerns, climate change, income inequality, immigration and they also laid the foundation at that meeting for what became a historic change in policy between the united states and cuba.
and it's expected pope francis will at least make some indirect comments here at the white house about that normalization of relations between the united states and cuba something the vatican played a secret but pivotal role in as a negotiating partner and someone encouraging the cubans and americans to reconcile. something tells two leaders discussed. the president talked to the pope about what he felt in his presidency the weight of celebrity, sometimes out sized expectations about what could be done. he saw that in his campaign he saw a lot of hope and enthusiasm and also saw during his presidency saw that hope turn to disillusionment and indifference. he told the pope i hope it doesn't happen to you during your papacy. the pope said he would turn to the poor for spiritual sustenance. you may say that displayed on
the south lawn and during their private meeting here at the white house. >> reporter: i just spoke with father thomas reese who has seen his holiness' remarks and it's interesting because we'll hear pope francis speak in english which, of course, is not his native tongue and he has difficulty speaking in english. charlie and gayle i'm told he'll talk about being a son of immigrants. he's also going to talk about the environment. he's going to make a reference to cuba. while this is largely a pass toral visit the vatican keeps saying here to the united states there are certainly a lot of political overtones which will align him very closely with president obama's own agenda before he heads up to capitol hill tomorrow before a republican controlled congress. >> we will watch and wait for the pope come out and we'll follow him through the white house. with us here a theology professor of notre dame and cbs news papal news contributor the spiritual director of the north
american college of rome. we're pleased to have both of them. here we have this pope. i'm impressed with one his energy. i'm impressed with his devotion to humility. i'm impressed with the idea of how people are so responding to him. what is at the essence of this man that leads the church and so many people, catholics admire him so much? >> i really believe pope francis knows god has put him in this position, charlie. we know he could be pope last time around. but being elected second time around he knows that he has a certain amount of time to accomplish a mission. he's a man with a mission, with a certain amount of time to achieve great changes to take place in the church. what makes him so attractive is that he's very authentic. i think that comes from his
he is the son of immigrants. they came, fled mussolini's regime in italy. coming from that sort of family he has a love for immigrants, that plight. secondly he's a very normal man. and he was bouncer at a nightclub. he used to clean floors at a disco. >> he fell in love. >> he fell in love even at the seminary. he talks about a time where he was in the seminary and he was in the chapel thinking always of a beautiful young lady. >> we're in washington right now. they want to give an update. the fiat has pulled up to pick up the pontiff. you're not surprised he's arriving in a fiat. it's just pulled up to take him to the white house where he's getting ready to address the crowd there. you always say he makes a heart to heart connection to people. >> he does.
he can be in huge crowds but his eyes will always fall upon someone who is suffering, in need. again that comes from his history. remember at the age of 21 he suffered from a lung disease. he almost died. that led to the removal of a great part of his lung. so he knows what suffering is. he knows the effects it can have on a person's life and he knows what struggle is. i think that endears him to those who are suffering. >> he's a very contemporary man. the issues that concern him are important issues of our time and that's part of his agenda when he meets with the president. >> yeah, i think when he meets with the president he'll talk about things like poverty and the environment, things that they share but he'll try to push him on obamacare, perhaps. on issues relating to abortion and contraception. i think francis' appeal comes from the fact he feels really human and feels authentic when
he goes off script and that builds trust and that's something lacking in the american church. >> let's go back to the white house. norah o'donnell is there. we see the dignitaries are taking their seats. >> reporter: vice president joe biden and his wife have gathered. they are sitting there as well as the secretary of state john kerry and all of the vip guests sitting right here behind me where the president and the pope will speak later. we're also going to hear shortly the ruffles and flourishes from the herald trumpets on the blue room balcony which is just right above the diplomatic door room right there. we'll see also the pope, his holiness and president obama up there as well. remarks from both of them. so president obama will speak. he'll welcome the pope here. then we'll hear from his holiness and then we'll have his holiness will get in his popemobile to greet many of the people. i've covered the white house, as you know, different administrations.
identify never seen anything like this before. it's packed. there are just people as far as the eye can see all the way on the south lawn of the white house, all the way extending into the ellipse. it couldn't be a more beautiful morning for this occasion. nice and cool and the sun is shining. it actually -- everybody is quiet right now. in expectation of seeing his holiness. >> i same secretary of state john kerry and ethel kennedy next him to. three is, pope francis comes out. going to his fiat for the ride where he will make this very important address. he will speak in english and he will talk to those people who come there, some 15,000 to hear him talk about his visit to america. what he wants to do and perhaps talk a bit about himself, who he is and what has shaped him on the way to becoming the head of the church.
>> charlie, he goes straight to the crowd. he doesn't get in the car. you're not surprised to see that. he goes right to the crowd, immediately shaking hands. >> can you imagine what it means to those people who can reach out and touch the pope or kiss him. >> monsignor you said he's been taking english lessons. >> i was with the holy father last december, and he told me how excited and honored he felt to come to the united states and how much he needs to prepare for this visit. he certainly isn't a man who expected to be the pope. >> look at the smile on his face. >> invigorating. >> jeff is there where the pope has just arrived and has stopped to talk to the pope.
>> reporter: well, he is meeting right now with catholic students from the region, and as you might imagine this is a moment that they will remember for the rest of their lives. they have been out here for the last couple of hours cheering, waiting for the pope to emerge and now they are seeing him right in front of them. he is shaking their hands and you can see that his security is standing back. as you know, there's been a lot of discussion about how this pope likes to mingle with the crowds and he's doing that now. this is a crowd of about 50 people on the lawn of the mission here. there are bigger crowds a little street. many of these folks have been screened. they were invited in here to this event. and they are seeing the pope emerge for first time as he prepares to enter the fiat and then he'll be led through the
way to the white house by a caravan of he chevy suvs with secret service agents around him. as we mentioned this is a complex security event, one designated by the department of homeland security to put it on level with a presidential inauguration and super bowl. so there's been a lot of thought, a lot of planning visit. in fact the secret service some months ago sent a detail to the vatican to observe his moments. for moments like this where he is interacting with the crowds and we expect to see more of that today, as you know, after the white house he goes on to the parade, and there is a crowd there of about 200,000 people that they are expecting to line the parade route and we expect that there may be more moments like this when we see the popemobile for the first time. but look at these students enjoying this moment with pope
francis who so enjoys the personal contact and that's what these students have been waiting for. charlie? >> thank you so much. it is an extraordinary sight to see this pope. tell us about the garmentes he has on. >> the traditional garments of any pontiff has been used for many centuries to distinguish him from a priest. notice that very simple garments, the cross he wears the cross he wore as archbishop of b uenos aires. he doesn't wear the red shoes he wears trousers underneath. he is the holy father but more importantly he wants to remain very normal and simple in his dress. >> you see the crowd trying to get selfies.
this is one moment you don't want the cell phone to die. do you bother his safety? >> we do. we do not want to lose him. as he's quick, god has put me here so god will have to take care of me. >> god is his guardian angel. >> god is his guardian angel. that's why i think he's loved so much. for us as catholics as christians he follows what crowds. >> do you believe all those cardinals who knows him are even themselves surprised by the pope he has become? >> oh, i have spoken to many, many cardinals, and when he was elected we were there together, charlie. and they were surprised he was elected. it must have come from the holy spirit. but he's just blossomed. and he was very shy man, really shy, even before he was pope. extremely shy. look at him now.
