7:03 am
you go, oh, my gosh, look at all of this. you have to say to yourself, why are they throwing all of that? i'll tell you why, because i've been on the front lines of change and progress since i was your age. >> reporter: sanders was asked how he defines being a democratic socialist. >> creating a government that works for all of us, not just a handful of people on the top. that's my definition of democratic socialism. >> reporter: each was asked to react to the other's tv ads. >> the one leader who has what it takes to get every part of the job done. >> reporter: sanders said she has voted for the iraq war. >> i was not secretary of state, but experience is important, but judgment is also important. >> reporter: she had nothing but praise for his simon and garfunkel themed ads. look for america i think that's fabulous. i loved it.

7:08 am
changed that? >> i don't know if i saw anything that changed it, but i thought hillary clinton was sort of acknowledging the place that she is in this race a little bit. trying to fix it a little bit. i thought that she was trying very hard to engage, trying to stay nimble a little bit. she didn't come across as bitter. i was surprised with bernie sanders. he was a little bit defensive. he got a couple questions that weren't necessarily intended to force a contrast with hillary clinton, and he decided to take it. one was on guns and one when he watched her ad, he went at foreign policy. it was interesting. you saw sort of a -- i felt you saw bernie sanders tense and a relaxed clinton. >> and one of the other things on the hillary clinton campaign. hillary clinton is saying i'm the experienced candidate. sanders had a good comeback. experience matters, so does
7:09 am
when it was her chance to respond? >> no. i thought that was his strongest moment, as far as an issue, trying to beat back the idea that he's not ready for the job. you know, she doesn't have a good answer and it doesn't help that the current national security situation in the middle east is a mess. i think it only helps reinforce the sanders charge, especially with democratic votes. >> i want to play this sound bite one more time from the president, doing an interview with "politico," and ask you about it on the other side. this is talking about hillary clinton. listen. >> she can start here day one, more experienced than any non-vice president has ever been in, who aspires to the office. >> if you're running the clinton campaign, you have to think it's an endorsement and play that tape any time you can. >> that's right. how about the way she reacted last night? i mean, she goes, i'm touched. i think she was not just excited but relieved. remember, sanders is trying
7:10 am
obama here again. to create this sense of deja vu again. i think hillary clinton, their strategy and it has been this way for three weeks, don't just stand next to the president. hug him, do whatever it takes. this is a case of the president trying to reciprocate. >> it's the most engaged he's been on this race. seeming to hug hillary clinton back after she did him the same favors. no coincidences in politics? is this something they worked out ahead of time? >> i feel this is something where the president was trying to do her a solid. he said he's not going to endorse until the, quote, primary season is over, but he knows there's pandemonium in his party if she loses iowa and new hampshire. there's calls to joe biden, the michael bloomberg thing. you know, if she can win iowa, she can calm a lot of nerves. i think the president knew that. >> ten seconds, chuck, donald trump threatening to pull out of the republican debate over megyn kelly. does he do anything with that
7:11 am
bigger superstar? >> i think it does. look, i think he's working the ref a little bit. he's doing that. already, if he gets a question he doesn't like, he can just chalk it up to that. i think he's setting the expectation. >> chuck todd, thanks very much. talk about the weather. there is mounting frustration this morning over all that snow from the east coast. historic blizzard. airports struggling to get back on track. with neighborhoods not plowed today, people are starting to voice their anger and frustration. nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer is in washington, where the federal government and the schools are closed again today. miguel, good morning. >> savannah, good morning. it'll be another tough day in cities like washington, d.c. this is what many neighborhoods look like. they're still buried in snow. cars are still packed underneath it. it's been 60 hours since the storm, and some are still struggling to make it around
7:12 am
>> reporter: first one. >> one plow, and that was it. >> reporter: really piling on. >> it appears they've stopped working. >> reporter: amid the first melting, a virtual meltdown. >> all our driveways, we're ready to go, but the roads are not cleared. >> reporter: travel on ice. subway rails stuck. 13,000 flights frozen. >> we're melting snow and probably will be the next ten days. >> reporter: at washington's reagan airport, runways were clear, but there's nowhere for cars to park. >> we wanted to make sure everything was okay so we came last night. >> reporter: travelers trapped at the airport along with cleanup crews. >> we sleep in our shops, spa rooms, bunkers. some guys sleep in their trucks. >> reporter: the lucky few who got out captured a winter wonderland below. pretty from the air. a different story on the ground. back roads buried. even snow plows stuck. >> i shovelled all this stuff.

7:14 am

7:17 am
confinement for juveniles has been linked to depression, alienation zptand the potential for violent behavior. also, the longest a prisoner could spend in solitary would be 60 days for a first offense, rather than the current 365 days. the reforms would affect about 10,000 federal prisoners. now to the growing concerns over this zika virus. the world health organization warns the mosquito-born virus is likely to spread to all the countries around america except chili. there have been no cases yet of infection in the united states yet. however, in los angeles county, several doctors have contacted public health department officials, asking for blood tests for patients exhibiting symptoms. a pregnant woman was among those patients. now more about the wild scene we showed earlier.
7:18 am
about what started out as a routine traffic stop and ended with an officer opening fire on a young driver. natalie has more. >> this incident happened last week. it is still under investigation. orlando police say it all started when they pulled over a 17-year-old for a seat belt violation. what they didn't realize at the time, the car he was driving was stolen. >> reporter: the footage is striking. [ gunshots ]. >> shots fired! >> reporter: police officer shoots at a car in an orlando, florida, shopping center. >> stop! orlando police, stop! >> reporter: police say the january 16th incident started when officers spotted the driver not wearing his seat belt. >> stop the car! >> reporter: this is newly released police body cam footage. >> put your hands up now! >> reporter: when the suspect didn't stop, cops used batons to
7:19 am
still, the suspect then backs up into a parked car. before trying to make another escape. that's when the car comes right toward one of the officers, who says he was forced to fire four shots to protect himself. another angle from store surveillance shows the driver of what turned out to be a stolen car getting shot at, but managing to get away. a witness described the terrifying incident to our affiliate but did not want to be identified on camera. >> everything happened so fast. i just froze. when in a state of shock because i wasn't expecting them to pull out guns and open fire. >> the car eventually crashed. the 17-year-old driver was arrested after fleeing on foot. he was treated for a bullet wound to his shoulder and is charged with assaulting police. the officer, meanwhile, involved is on paid administrative leave. i guess this is a good instance where it's a good thing they had the body cam footage. they actually back up the investigation now.
7:20 am
