7:03 am
anthony mason is with us. hillary clinton and bernie sanders dominated the first democratic debate of the presidential campaign. they battled over everything from wall street to gun control. but sanders also gave his rival a boost arguing that voters don't care about her e-mails. >> the other three candidates were left largely on the sidelines. nancy cordes is at the las vegas resort where the debate unfolded last night. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this was a more spirited high octane debate than some probably expected and clinton's performance gave her campaign a badly needed shot in the arm. she took fire from all sides but that ended up helping her show some spark and address some of the concerns about her candidacy. >> well, i am in the middle here and lots of things coming from all directions. >> reporter: clinton laughed off some attacks and carried others. >> are you not for putting a fire wall between a risky shadow
7:04 am
i think we need someone that has the best in ethical standard as our next president. that's how i feel. >> secretary clinton, do you want to respond? >> no. >> governor? >> reporter: she did respond to a question about some of her shifting positions. >> will you say anything to get elected? >> well actually, i have been very consistent over my entire life and fought for the same principles. >> are you a progressive or a moderate? >> i'm a progressive but a progressive who likes to get things done. >> reporter: bernie sanders. >> say, please do the right thing. >> no, that is not what. >> reporter: former virginia senator jim webb accused him of being naive with his calls for americans to rise up and demand more from government. >> i got a great deal of admiration and affection for senator sanders, but, bernie, i don't think the revolution is going to come. >> reporter: gun legislation
7:05 am
turned out to be one of the biggest flash points. >> is bernie sanders tough enough on guns? >> no, not at all. senator sanders did vote five times against the brady bill. >> reporter: martin o'malley showed his experience. >> we were able to pass this and respect the hunting conditions of the people who lived in rural areas. >> reporter: but sanders rebelled against a issue about clinton's e-mail issue. >> the american people are sick and tired hearing about your damn e-mails. >> thank you, thank you. me, too! >> enough of the e-mails! let's talk about the real issues facing america! >> reporter: later, he said it just popped out. >> some people are going to say you gave her a big gift. >> i don't know that i gave her a big gift but what i said was true. >> reporter: it's a sign that the two who are adversariys are leader.
7:06 am
joe biden is still on the fence because several of the candidates who are already in the race showed the kind of poise and passion that democratic voters are looking for. >> nancy, thank you very much. at one point, clinton defended capitalism after sanders claimed he preferred democratic socialism. >> when you look around the world, you see every other major country providing health care to all people as a right, except the united states, and i think we should look to countries like denmark, like sweden, and norway and learn from what they have accomplished for their working people. >> but we are not denmark. i love denmark. we are the united states of america and it's our job to rein in the excesses of capitalism so it doesn't run amuck and doesn't pause the kind of inequities we are seeing in our economic system, but we would be making a grave mistake to turn our backs
7:07 am
class in the world. >> "face the nation" moderator this morning. she looked like the fighter and night. >> she really was. hillary clinton is kind of at the mercy of events the last several months, trying to catch up and get her story out, but she has been dogged by questions of e-mails and last night what made it such a distinguishing performance for her was she knew the details of what she wanted to say and attacked the republicans in a way that was pleasing to the audience, and she just felt in command the way a front-runner -- she looked the way a front-runner is supposed to look i. >> and she showed a sense of humor too. the line of the night came from bernie sanders. the american people are sick and tired of your damn e-mails played well in the room. do you think that was a gift and will that help expand his base? >> it takes a village and she got an assist there from bernie sanders. i think it helped within the moment, in the context of the debate, which is what she will needed, in other words, she had
7:08 am
one was to play offense and dictate on her terms what they would talk about, but also she had to play defense on the question of e-mails henand her flip-flopping and bernie sanders took the e-mail question off the table. i don't think that will go away as she has to testify in front of the benghazi committee. one in the associated press yesterday about her server so that story not going away but among democratic voters she got her talking point which is they don't care about it and was ratified by one of her opponents. >> will it help him expand his base? >> well, bernie sanders probably -- what will help him expand his base he was constantly on the message about billionaires and that made him an attractive candidate to hillary clinton was demanding on a series of issue and he was passionate and commanding on his one big one.
7:09 am
>> if you're vice president biden sitting at home watching this, how does it affect your thinking about whether you get into your race? >> i think it closes an avenue. obviously, his big decision is whether emotionally he wants to run but a poll from the idea that hillary clinton was flipping and sailing and whip-sawed around by events. last night, she showed that she could handle a big moment like this so today we are talking about her performance and not the huge vacuum in the race that needs to be filled like a white knight by joe biden. >> john dickerson, thank you. our coverage of the democratic debate will continue throughout the day on our digital network cbsn. investigators are heading to the scene of a deadly plane crash. two people died tuesday when a small plane plunged into a mobile home park in palm beach county, florida. surveillance video shows smoke
7:10 am
>> reporter: the faa is investigating this crash which happened at around 5:30 last night about three miles north of the palm beach county park airport. before the crash, several people called 911 describing a low flying aircraft. the plane crashed into a cluster of mobile homes in this club in palm beach county, florida. witnesses described choking smoke and fire. neighbors ran to help. >> the plane fell into the house and then after that, you just seen a lot of smoke and a whole bunch of fire, black smoke. we tried to go and save him but there was too much smoke. >> reporter: the impact captured on this surveillance video shows a plane coming in at a sharp angle. its wings are perpendicular to the ground. after impact, there is a large black plume of smoke. domingo lived in this home and said he was outside when the plane crashed. his 21-year-old daughter manny
7:11 am
was inside the home when the plane hit and she stayed home from college yesterday because she was sick. they said she did not survive. after everything that happened, i couldn't do anything. firefighters told domingo galicia they are bringing in heavy equipment to search through the wreckage for his daughter's remains. a wisconsin gun store this morning is liable in the officers. the cops won a nearly $6 million ruling in a land dsmark civil suit yesterday against badger guns. they argue the gun shop was negligent in selling weapons that killed them. >> the two were shot in the face in 2008. kunish lost an eye and norberg was hit in the mouth. >> some gun dealers around the country realizes they may have their teeth held to the fire because of the award here and that is a bonus. >> one verdict in milwaukee is certainly a good step. is it going to change the way
7:12 am
time will tell. >> time will tell. cbs news legal expert rikki klieman joins us at the table. good morning. >> good morning. >> were you surprised by this decision and why is this such a big deal? >> i was surprised because i thought that most jurors might not really toe the line that has been advocated by gun ownership people. at the same time, if you look at the facts of this case, this was the perfect case. it took a two-week trial, and basically nine hours for 12 people to do what congress could not and would not do in years! it's momentous, this decision. >> let's talk about the 2005 law which protects gun manufacturers. how effectively could this change things? >> well, the law is the law. it is called the protection of lawful commons and arms act and the strongest piece of gun control legislation.
7:13 am
there is no other industry, anthony, not the pharmaceutical companies, not the car manufacturers, not the appliance people who have immunity from civil liability. what happened here is that these two police officers in the city of milwaukee said enough is enough. you can't just immunize an industry as was done back in 2005 and in 30 states, but here, the facts. we have to look at the facts where they say, the jury agrees, that in this gun dealer's store, that they should have known, if they did not know, that this is what we call a straw purchase. >> this store had a particularly bad record. >> oh, my god! one of the worst in the country! and no matter what the atf, the bureau of alcohol and tobacco and firearms did to cite them over and over again, they would just change their name and they would go forward. in this case, you have two people who enter the store, one
7:14 am
they come in and the straw buyer, the buy who is going to buy it for him, he actually even checks the box that he is not buying it for himself. the guy in the store helps him undo that and do it right. you have video, powerful video. >> will there be other changes in the country, you think? >> i think it could lead to many other lawsuits. this is the second lawsuit ever brought. the first time that a gun dealer has ever been held liable. so this will lead other people to feel emboldened they should go forward who is in that gun control or gun ownership group. ultimately, is the law going to change? it's not that simple. you're going to need someone who comes in as a president. hillary clinton was very strong last night. >> she was. >> that if she gets in, she is going to do something about this. others, not so much. >> interesting to see what happens in other court cases. rikki klieman, thank you. >> i think you should speak more passionately. thank you. this morning, planned

just a moment. i'm chris bosh. when i was sidelined with blood clots in my lung, it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto . hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there's limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to.
8:27 am
nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your sk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related 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 , 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 strictions. treatment with xarelto . ...was the right move for us.
