7:10 am
>> it's been an hon tore serve -- >> fighting bacterias sks the tears. he woke up ready to move on. >> last night i started thinking and this morning i woke up and i said my prayers, as i always do. and i decided, you know, today is the day i'm going to do this. as simple as that. >> the tea party wave of 2010 handed boehner the speaker's gavel. but throughout his nearly five year tenure he struggled with a africature fractured and more conservative caucus. he said he was putting party over his own career. >> it's become clear to me that this prolonged leadership turmoil would do irreparable harm to the institution. >> his announcement brought cheers at a conservative gathering in washington, where some republican presidential

welcomed the news. >> yesterday john boehner was speaker of the house. y'all come to town and somehow that changes. my only request is can you come more often? >> john bayner is a good man. >> at the white house, president obama said he was surprised by b boehner's decision and praised the public speaker even though end of political fights. >> someone who understands that in government, in governance you don't get a hundred percent of what you want. i'm not going to pre judge who the next speaker will be. that's something that will have house. >> the leading candidate is majority leader kevin mccarthy but he may face a challenge from texas congressman jeff hensarling, who's spokesman said
7:12 am
he will decide by next week. with a budget fight around the corner, boehner was working to keep the government open through the rest of the year. conservative members are insisting on defunding planned parenthood as part of the next spending plan. but a shut down is far less likely for now. >> so what will be the impact of boehner's abrupt decision to leave congress in the middle of his third term as speaker? let's talk about that and other political issues with steve shigaris. good morning. >> good morning. >> what was it? the pope, the pressure? what was it that finally led to this decision. >> i think this was probably a lot of all that. the hard line conservatives threatening shut down, they were also threatening to oust boehner. and he didn't want to put his members through a tough vote and the turmoil of deciding whether
7:13 am
>> and the whole issue of the shut down, and now actually seems less likely that is going happen. how does that work exactly? >> the shut down, the funding runs out for the government at the end of the month. so congress needs to figure out how to keep the government running. they are going pass some sort of short-term spending bill. but they were -- the right wing of the republican party was sort of threatening to hold that up in order to force a defunding of planned parenthood. now that boehner is gone i think you are going to see some sort of short-term budget agreement before the end of the month. >> look at the roster and second in line is kevin mccarthy. what difference would that make if he's nominated? and do you think it will be him? >> the problem for mccarthy is a deep distrust of the establishment by hard line conservatives and tea party members. these members were elected to shake things up. they may not stand by and rubber
7:14 am
stamp somebody like mccarthy. the infights really it isn't quadrillion for ideal for them. >> where the challenges for mccarthy serious? >> they could be. and that is the decision that these hard liners are going to have to take. are they going to push back against mccarthy. by the way somebody who's very highly regarded by his colleague. somebody who's been out there on the road raising a lot of money for republican members. so there is good will on mccarthy's part. do they challenge him or try to put people up in the lower majority leader, majority whip spots and try to gain influence there. >> snz not only happening in the midst of a possible shut down but in the midst of a very large gop presidential field. how do you think this is going to affect that? >> the outsider flames are already being fanned by people like donald trump and cruz.
7:15 am
infighting result in such polarization that absolutely nothing gets done on the hill? and if so, as the majority in both houses, the republicans and the eventual republican nominee will have to explain that to voters. >> steve, thank you so much. tune into cbs tomorrow morning when outgoing house speaker john boehner will be john dickerson's guest across the nation. his first live interview since announcing. >> republican presidential candidate donald trump spoke at the conservative values voters summit in washington fritd. and trump took aim at the immigration policies of a republican rival. that didn't go over well with the crowd. >> you have this clown marco rubio. i've been so nice to him. [ crowd boos ] i've been so nice to him. i've been so nice. but then no he's been in favor of immigration.
7:16 am
and he has been. >> donald trump can dish it out as he attacks other republican candidates but can he also take criticism? >> why so thin skinned? >> i don't like lies. i don't mind a bad story. if you did a bad story on me for 60 minutes, if it were a fair story, i wouldn't be thin skinned at all. you know, some of the media is among the worst people i've ever met. and i mean a good percentage is really a terrible group of people. they write lies. they write false stories. they know they're false. it makes so difference. and frankly i -- i don't call it thin skinned. i'm angry. >> but a reporter asked you couple of hard questions at the first debate and the whole week after that it's war on that reporter. >> well i don't think that was a fair question. >> an impression is created though that you like to dish it out but you can't take a punch. >> i oh i think i can take it. i can take it if it's fair. again if people say things that
7:17 am
are false, which happens a lot are false, which happens a lot with me. if people say things that are false, i will fight, like, harder than anybody. if i do something wrong -- and that happens -- and they write a fair story that i did something wrong. there is nothing to fight about. . i'm a very honorable guy. i don't like lies. >> tomorrow evening on 60 minutes, donald trump talks about taxes, immigration and replacing obamacare. and russian president vladimir putin sits down with charlie rhodes. another development that could effect the 2016 presidential race, the obama administration said it found a chain of e-mails that hillary clinton failed to turn over to the state department. messages she exchanged with general david pa trayis. >> cheenz president xi jinping

and found the complications of pregnancy, things like pree champsia, high pressure that develops or pre term delivery can raise the risk anywhere from 1.6 to 4 times. when they happen in combination. so you have prekpooising ingpreexisting high blood pressure and. and they also identify two new risk factors. one would be high sugar in the urine or. >> i don't know what to do with that information though. it is not like you can stop any of those complications in your pregnancy. >> i think when we put this in context. instead of being frightening it really should be seen as the great opportunity. a great opportunity for women at a very young age to know if they are at an increased risk of
7:36 am
and also for doctors sort of in the primary care sector. as a general internist like me or o.bgyn. ob giens. pregnancy is a stress test but maybe we should get you a treadmill stress test. and i think we have a very receptive audience. particularly in women who have just given birth. you want to be in best health you can to raise your children. so i think this is a great opportunity. >> next up a new report for the centers for disease control find older american whose work are healthier than those who are unemployed or retired. we've heard studies like this before but this is new in some ways. >> right. one of the things that makes this really impactful is just that it's such a humange amount of information. data from 85,000 people over the age of 65 and really looked at three criterion.
7:37 am
one was if they had any physical limitations. the next was how they felt about their own health. and then if they had any sort of long-term health complications. across the board people who were either retired or unemployed reported poorer health outcomes than people who were still working. and that is even after you accounted for other risk factors like smoking or obesity. now the study couldn't show whether or not it was retirement that caused poor health or whether because you had poor health you retired. but still this link is there and it is incredibly important. >> so we don't know. people i think actually it is the mind it is staying active. but do we know what really? >> we don't know for sure. older americans, one thing they bring up is being mentally engaged and having a purpose to your life. there is no doubt that plays into the physical health. some of the other factors that might pray in. social support when you continue
7:38 am
to work. income. comprehensive healthcare benefits. and then just this idea that you are physically active for every time. you are getting up, going to work. you are active. impb implications. we hear should people be forced to retire at the certain age? and now we know it is not so great for the workplace. all right a panel of experts with the north american menopause society released new recommendations for treating hot flashes without the use of hormones. about 75% of'5"% of u.s. women have menopausaleal hot flashes with 50 to 80% trying non hormonal therapies. what treatments seem to be the most effective. >> now that hormone replacement is no longer just standard of care for women having hot flashes we see women trying anything, everything, whatever
7:39 am

7:40 am
>> used to be you hormone therapy. now we know that for some women it can increase the risk of breast and ovarian cancer, heart disease, stroke and o a number of other risk factors. there is still a small group of women for whom benefits out weigh the risks. but it is done on an individual level. finally good news for those of us who have trouble sitting still on the job. a new study from british researchers finds a little workplace fidgeting may be good for your health. tapping your feet at the desk help to counteract the harmful effects of sitting too long during a workday. start tapping. >> great news for my six-year-old. although she's not employed. she fidgets. much. up next an american

vp after six months aboard the international space station, nasa astronaut scott kelly and a russian cosmonaut have reached the halfway point of their mission. they are spending a full year in orbit to learn about the physical and mental effects of long-term someplacepace flight, as much as a journey to mars. titled a year in space. >> i do sometimes dream of being in space. i'll wake up and tell amiko hey i had this dream and i was on the space station.
7:45 am
and sometimes she's been with me. she's been with me in i dreams. my kids have. but while up there most of humanity is 250 miles below you. if anything goes wrong on earth you are not going home. >> time editor, jeffrey kluger. this looks amazing. >> extraordinary experience. time has gotten the kind of access that in 37 years of covering space i've never been able to enjoy before. we've been behind the scenes at the russian space agency. we've been where the rocket was launched. we've been at the training center. we've been at the neutral buoyancy lab. >> if the average trip is about six months, why did you want to see what would happen at the year mark? >> it is a critical juncture, because if human beings are ever going to make trips to mars we
7:46 am
have to determine if the human have to determine if the human body can function for so long in space. so scott kelly and micha are up there running this real time experience. and in scott's case there is a serinendipitously perfect control study. because his identical twin brother mark a retired astronaut is running the same test on earth so two identical templates and two environments and you learn an enormous amount. >> what are you hoping to learn by comparing the two. >> so much happens when to the body when you take off the function of gravity. the heart can grow slack. muscles can grow weak. bones decalcify. fluid shifts upward at the right of about two liters increasing pressure on the skull. the telomeres burn down faster so scott may actually age a bit faster.
7:47 am
but he'll get 3% taller without gravity. >> unbelievable. so in the sixth months has anything changed when one twin and -- >> well you don't know yet. what they are doing though is comparing all the things. they are comparing what goes on in the gut and comparing immune functions as well. scott just recently self administered a flu vasquez inccine in space. >> what other experiments are they doing jeffrey? >> well they are doing something with in order to see if you can bring the fluid out of the head, they are wearing low -- reverse pressure inflatable pants. a little like clown pants to pull the fluid down. mark also got before he went up two tiny blue dot tattoos which will always make it easy for him to determine where to hut put his sonogram probes.
7:48 am
>> do you think any of these experiments could also benefit humans on earth. >> i do. and one of the space station mottos is off the earth for the earth. and i think that is a very real thing. this isn't just a feel-good slogan. the more you learn about how the human body operates when you take off the x factor of gravity the more you can learn basic science about aging, about cardiovascular health, about fitness and cognition. it is one of the reasons john glenn at age 78 went back into space in 1998. because a lot of the symptoms ss space travel parallel the symptoms of aging. >> fascinating. six months left. jeffrey, thank you so o much. >> thank you. >> come aupg television first. 55 years ago we look at the kennedy/nixon debate that changed american political campaigns forever.
