if you're shopping on small business saturday, your chances of finding a deal is like spinning a wheel. it all depends on where you go.

"it's not as hectic here, like you don't see clothes everywhere on the floor." "small biz saturday isn't celebrated everywhere in des moines. out here in west glen, we just talked to one local shop running a deal, and parking clearly isn't a problem the way it is on black friday." it may not be a unanimous day of savings amongst the small, local shops across des moines. but for some... ...today isn't about more sales.

"i do think that a lot of our customers treat every day like small business saturday, and that's they want to shop local, and they want to keep their dollars local, and that's kind of why we're here." - but some shoppers say a day set aside to support the local economy is an important symbol. "small business saturday definitely has a key part in me shopping today, but yeah, it's a great store, so it's lovely they have deals." deals in some places, donations in others... dead silence everywhere else. small business saturday sums it up in its name...small. after a busy weekend shopping, many stores and shoppers are getting ready for "giving tuesday." the newest trend lands just two days after one of the biggest shopping weekends of the yee. it focuses on businesses giving back a portion of sales to

"small biz saturday isn't celebrated everywhere in des moines. out here in west glen, we just talked to one local shop running a deal, and parking clearly isn't a problem the way it is on black friday." it may not be a unanimous day of savings amongst the small, local shops across des moines. but for some... ...today isn't about more sales.

"because you have more traffic in your store, so, it just brings awareness to people what's important to you. and giving back for us feels really good this year." for those who embrace shopping locally, today is just like any other day. "i do think that a lot of our customers treat every day like small business saturday, and that's they want to shop local, and they want to keep their dollars local, and that's kind of why we're here." - but some shoppers say a day set aside to support the local economy is an important symbol.

and coming up next on the insiders with dave price. republican presidential candidate carly fiorina tells us why her seemingly random choice for a college major helps her now. and a prominent polk county democrat also tells us why he isn't
9:05 am
why i think when we talk about educating people there are many things we need to educate. we need to educate people so they can make it living yes but do we need to prepare their
9:06 am
minds so they can be respectable adults and citizens? yes so i think that means not just tools of the trade but honestly, arts, music, history art, music, history, philosophy. these things build character and they also teach people how to think katie and your nonprofit you had specifically reached out to young women to try to empower and encourage them. as you know, there is an effort in our state to get young woman involved. what do you think the key is to that to let him win young women know they can do it to encourage them to do it. we clearly have eight gap there are. >> i will tell you, when i was chief executive of hewlett-packard, we realized that we needed to find more people who wanted to ultimately come to be employees for us, and so we went into underprivileged high schools in underprivileged
9:07 am
communities, and we found many girls who had aptitudes, but what we did was surround them with mentors and role models, and we brought them into hewlett-packard buildings and showed them the kind of life sacred acre campus they got this kind these kinds of degrees. then we go on and give them scholarships to college and surround them with opportunities , mentorship and support. the point is if you don't give the young woman or young man the support and the encouragement and the vision of the kind of life and kind of people they that they can be --dash. >> republicans like to mash the
9:08 am
altogether. make it quick pros and cons list for the us department of
9:09 am
education. supporters and the best way to lay out policy for educating 50 million kids across our country and administering things like hell grants pell grants and the con's credit fans stands at $57 billion in your enterprise responsible for mandates like no child left behind and in the case would mention it, in the $57 billion enterprise. but in rules and money are where republicans often enter their criticism. i asked carly fiorina whether department of education would still be in department in her white house. >> what we know it isn't working as the department of education is getting bigger and bigger. why do we know it's not working? because it's gotten bigger and better for 40 years in the quality of education has continued to deteriorate. the opportunity gap between those who are in underserved communities and those were more privileged seems to be getting wider, not narrower. so funding the department of education clearly does not work but i think it is also true that
9:10 am
create the problem. why is it that student debt has skyrocketed under president obama? because federal government took over the student loan business. buried in the pages of obama care was the federal government takeover of the student loan industry so now the federal government to determine who whom who gets alone in the interest rate you pay. interest rate you pay on that student that at the sport have the six and half percent roughly and guess what? government pays one and half to one half percent on its debt. does that sound like the iraq and? the federal government is making money off of students. yes it's the racket. we need to turn the student loan industry back over to the free market. the government should not be in that business and it has made that business worse. competition worse. secondly, the government has added layers of cost into the business. if you look at the role the government has played over decades and accreditation policies the government
9:11 am
basically says we don't think for-profit universities are good and we're not going to let lead to apply loads they are or we are going to layer more and more of these requirements over colleges i've served on boards of colleges, and all of that regulation requirement adds to the cost of education so actually, what we need more of his community control, real choice for every parent parent regardless of their circumstances, and more competition. what we need less of it being heavy-handed federal government bureaucracy and the federal government being in charge of who gets alone and what rates they pay became one of the things that i believe we must do is go to bureau -based budgeting. bureau -based budgeting is where every single dollar in every single department has to be examined and has to be justified can be cut and can be removed because unless we do that and by the way it's how every family budgets.
9:12 am
budget so why doesn't the federal government not do this. i think as citizens we had to take our government back and that's why i'm running for president because we had to do the commonsense things that are necessary to get our government under control and hold it accountable. zero -based budgeting as of is the big piece of that we waited this long to bring up donald trump. we know that she has had some issues with him in the past
9:13 am
when we come back, how trum jeb bush: here's the truth you will not hear from our president: we are at war with radical islamic terrorism. it is the struggle that will determine the fate of the free world. the united states should not delay in leading a global coalition to take out isis with overwhelming force. their aim is our total destruction. we can't withdraw from this threat or negotiate with it. we have but one choice: to defeat it.
9:14 am
vo: right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message. what to do with all of those refugees who were trying to please syria and go somewhere? that is the question presidential candidates have been asked a lot. i asked carly fiorina about how we should handle that can here is what we ought to be doing and i fault the obama administration
9:15 am
three years because this refugee crisis was entirely predictable. number one, we should be leading the humanitarian effort to help these refugees. number two, we should be leading an international effort to crush the scourge of human trafficking. human traffickers prey on the misery of these people. there are 55 million people moving around the globe trying to escape conflict zones. human traffickers prey on their misery and when you go look at these stories are or read are read these stories are see the poor orphan drowned on the beach, they were moved by human traffickers who came to families who took away their last penny and promised them safe passage to someone who plays then took advantage of it. human trafficking is an industry in the world now and we need to lead an effort to crush it. >> do worse were some questions about the way some of your competitors on the republican side and talked about this
9:16 am
humanitarian crisis with refugees and whether we accept, whether we don't. donald trump seems like it's kind of may be semantics or whatever it is with the database where he think maybe we need an muslim database. the. >> that the terrible idea. justice at the terrible idea just at the terrible idea to save the going to close down mosques. if there are people preaching violence and sedition there we have the laws in place to be able to someone and appropriately but one when we talk about databases and shutting down mosques that of trafficking fears it's trafficking fear and that doesn't help our party. it does not help our nation as it does not help solve the problem can you talk about trump little bit. what do you make about what we're seeing what you two going into this with the two outsiders. you hadn't helped public office, he both held business careers of you had it kind of run of the at the polling place. you look at and you look at
9:17 am
it looked where he is the wife he so popular with people right now cap next what is going to ask. >> i think you have to remember that donald trump began as the celebrity. i began with less than 4 percent of republican voters ever having heard my name. >> maybe you should have done reality shows. >> maybe you should have. >> people have had donald trump in their living rooms for along time and people are still getting to know me better in iowa and throughout the country. secondly, i think donald trump traffics in fear. there are a lot of people who are very angry and frustrated and i am angry and frustrated also which is why i say we have to take our government back but to engage in theory is not helpful and ultimately, i tend to beat mister trump. >> carly fiorina is at the bottom tier of republican candidates in our state and across the country and so is
9:18 am
martin o'malley on the democratic side but that did not stop it will well-known folk county democrat from endorsing
9:19 am
next why this is martin o'malley at the bottom of every poll you will find an american iowa and across the country however tom henderson is convinced that he is the best choice for his party's president. let's bring in tom henderson mister polk county democratic chair. you see the polls but he went with governor o'malley anyway. why? candidate. i have known him for about year and half now and you're going to write resume for good candidate for president to be martin o'malley. he has had two successful terms educational system and made it number one in the nation for
9:20 am
five straight years. he was ranked by the chamber of commerce is having the states that had the best in the nation and is the number of the remarkable things in maryland. does that besides winning reelection in 2010. he is an articulate candidate was one of one-on-one, does it great job and i'd never met any democratic activist who met him but didn't like him so he is the ideal candidate, it is just the matter of getting around to getting him to know people. >> isn't it safer for you to jump on the hillary clinton bandwagon? why not just play it safe. >> martin o'malley has been very loyal to the local party. he's the only candidate who is done that and at some perspective and earned my respect as well. it would be easier to support
9:21 am
people of people are doing that but you also see people who endorse people for the poll numbers that does is not unusual to see people person for those poll numbers as we start to whitewater which were about to enter key. >> we've heard these last few days that he will accept public financing and most candidates don't even do that anymore so they can get around the restrictions that come with that. so how does this not hurt him to go this route? >> is the public money? >> yes. >> the public money does help him because it makes more funds available to him. the great thing about the public program wasn't allowed the voters i thought to have more participation in our process. now we are talking about the big money that is been watching along all the politics and now they want to do away with that if we can. taking public money to me sounds like a lot more pure example of
9:22 am
the way democracy should be run versus setting up huge package. >> soaked when he starts to ring adds into those things that we've already seen he's either going to reduce its natural national stop or shift focus to some of the early states here. as they go forward i'm curious how you look at things. obviously he's either bit back and both of the polls from either hillary clinton or bernie sanders so who should he come after and you can define that however you want with you aggressively go after somebody are or just i believe in this and someone so believes in this what makes more sense to you? >> it's an interesting question the quinnipiac poll that came out 38 percent of the democratic base is still willing to consider him the candidate so does he go after hillary clinton who gets more bit like the traditional democratic vote or what we don't send regular basis. >> kind of the nontraditional caucus goers.
9:23 am
i think the real answer is probably both i think martin o'malley as is the similar candidate clinton and i think he can actually swing voters from both of those candidates. >> as you step back from the presidential race, you have three candidates, republicans have 114 or whatever that is so these numbers will be on tv and more. you have already seen your party tikka step back last year and kind of get beat up and it's kind of go with your local is retired. how do you look at the party as they hole in this state? >> to your point, any time you have an election like in 2010 your bench get smaller and that happened to the republicans in 2010 where they had to rebuild.
9:24 am
the party structure is actually still fairly good but our base isn't going to vote unless there's candidates on the ballot and we need to start filling those spots with individuals who could help attract individuals with votes. >> barack obama was really good and 2008 in bringing new people and and you saw surge in his side and our side and obviously you saw i met a lot of people let these events he did not consider themselves diehard democrats who were won over by his message. what has he done to win over his party? i have hurt more focused on the obama apparatus for but there wasn't enough focus on the party for the party's sake. >> that they good question because i will tell you that in 20 oh eight and 2012 we had some of the best election boats
9:25 am
turned out that i have ever seen but to become part of the democratic party in 2013 and it into that certain extent it did but you did not see barack obama involved and i think that was the huge mistake because actually, i thought at that point's presidency could be the type of presidency we should be elevated rather than running from it and we ran from it. we didn't have enough campaigning in that killed us and i think that that's something we needed to learn from the strategy he brought to us in the 2008 and 20 2012 campaigns are still there. >> and my overthinking this and you only have three yet is there anything there? there so many republicans. they're always going to be someone on tv because there's always somebody in town or does that matter? >> sometimes you see that in the presidential reelection campaign is the one party with all of their their candidates out. the nice thing about this
9:26 am
as it has gotten little bit crazy so that raises are our borrowed it. so in some respects it can be of blessing and up lesson and it can also be eight accursed.
9:27 am
threat, must time for insiders quick picks. the martin o'malley had to win iowa? >> know. he has to do better than expectations and right now expectations are very low. depends on the number on caucus night's. >> it feels to me like democrats feel marco rubio at this moment is the party's biggest threat. what is it about rubio that makes you think that? >> he is of fresh face. he is articulate. i don't like his resume or his political courage she is already showing in the senate but that's the reason he's the threat pussy
9:28 am
feels like he can't get the hispanic vote and draw them into the party. >> so we hear them talk again kind of fresh talk that governor chet culver is looking at running into the third district congressional race. percentagewise what you think the chances of it he goes through with this and actually runs? >> i think it's probably probably 5050. i get the impression that he wants to run it is going to be in this race. he is going to win the race. it may not be this one but we're going to see chet culver on the ballot again before too long. >> question for which one would you be more interested in hearing, adele's new album that came up last weekend's shattering records that stop or coldplay will feature little bit of president obama when he was direct delivering the eulogy at those charleston funerals when he did amazing grace and broken broke into song. which would intrigue you more to hear? >> obviously coldplay. >> question five would just gone through the thanksgiving holiday.
9:29 am
for what are you most thankful in your life? >> for my family without it out. it's the best thing ever. >> predictions. >> by prediction is for the viewers out there to stay tuned because the caucuses are going to get really interesting now. the numbers on the horse race is about to occur on both sides is going to be fascinating and it will pick up speed in january.
9:30 am
happythankful for. sunday night, i plan to show my gratitude to...them. ---------------------- guys, 'tis the season for opening your this sunday, campaign 2016 and this burning question -- can anything stop donald trump? even the truth? >> i watched in jersey city, new jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering. >> we'll ask donald trump about that and other claim also, ben carson travels to jordan to bone up on foreign policy. he joins me this morning with a
