7:10 am
nancy cordes is in columbia, south carolina, where clinton is also thinking about the gop front-runner. >> reporter: good morning. that's right. republicans are not the only ones who are starting to come to grips with the notion that trump could be the gop nominee. yesterday, the clinton campaign sent out this fund-raising appeal saying, everything is coming up trump. a message meant to scare their supporters into opening their wallets. >> when with you talk about the trump's of the world to divide us up. >> reporter: trump that united the democratic candidates, at least temporarily. >> i listen to the rhetoric on the republican side. i don't recognize my country. you know? senator sanders and i have been trying to run a campaign based on issues. they run a campaign based on insults. >> reporter: clinton is camped out in south carolina, protecting her large lead in the polls here. >> hi. >> reporter: sanders headed west in search of greener pastures and he found them. >> here in missouri!

to here him speak in kansas city. almost 10,000 in tulsa. >> i look out add this crowd, i don't think there is any way we are going to lose on tuesday! >> reporter: the only other candidate drawing crowds this large is trump. but, so far, the enthusiasm has not translated into turnout, which is down on the democratic side since 2008 in the three contests held so far. and that is a problem for time. >> voter turnout is everything. our job is to create a high voter turnout. if there is a large turnout, i think we will do very well. >> reporter: translation? sanders needs his young supporters to hit the polls in record numbers and offset clinton's advantage with older and more reliable advantage. in nevada she won by a full 50 points and won the caucus. you say you want to create the revolution that clinton couldn't.
7:12 am
is turnout a sign that that revolution isn't happening? >> it's a sign that barack obama ran a brilliant campaign in 2008. unprecedented. >> reporter: and even with that unprecedented campaign, though, obama just barely edged out hillary clinton. this time, sanders says he is going to win several super tuesday states and keep pace with clinton in the delegate count. >> thank you, nancy. see you on tuesday. president obama may reach across the aisle to get the senate to vote on his next supreme court nominee. reports say the white house is considering nevada's republican governor to replace justice antonin scalia. jan crawford is on capitol hill and watching the supreme court debate. >> reporter: good morning. senator republicans say they will block anyone the president nominates even if it's someone from their own party. yesterday, the president predicted they will cave. >> i recognize the politics are hard for them. >> reporter: from the oval office, president obama
7:13 am
republicans will back down and give his supreme court nominee a shot. >> there is not a lot of vigor when they defend the position that they are taking that they wouldn't even meet, for example, with a supreme court nominee. they are pretty sheepish about it when they make those comments. >> reporter: across town, the senate's top democrat, harry reid, offered a surprise pick, a rpublican. nevada governor brian sandoval. >> if he were picked, i would support the man. he's a good person. he has a great record. and he has been a tremendously good governor. >> reporter: sandoval may be seen as a moderate conservative but he is no fan of the president's signature achievement -- the affordable care act. he has called many aspects of the law unconstitutional and overturned. in a statement, sandoval's office said neither the governor nor his staff has been contacted by or talked to the obama administration regarding any potential vetting and that did lee.
7:14 am
i don't think it reflects any truth. i don't think that is who president obama is going to nominate. but even if it is, our position remains unchanged. >> reporter: lee says regardless of the nominee, most senate republicans are holding firm until the country elects a new president. >> it's not up to the president. we are a coordinate branch. government. this is our discussion, not his. >> reporter: the president says the sandoval buzz is read and they are playing games. a republican to the supreme court would make a conservative majority on that court for a generation. charlie? >> thanks, jan. apple ceo tim cook defended the company in his first interview about the standoff over the san bernardino gunman's iphone. he calls the government's request to unlock it bad for america. jeff pegues is in washington to show us apple's case. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. apple executives and the tech giants attorneys say this is a
7:15 am
slippery slope. tomorrow the company will put its arguments in writing when it's expected to file its legal challenge to the government. >> some things are hard and some things are right. and some things are both. this is one of those things. >> reporter: speaking publicly about the controversy, apple's ceo tim cook laid out his reasons for refusing a court order to unlock the iphone of syed farook, one of the terrorists behind the deadly attack in san bernardino, three months ago. >> to oppose your government on something doesn't feel good. and to oppose it on something where we are advocating for civil liberties, which they are supposed to protect, it is incredibly ironic. >> reporter: cook says the decision would compel the company to write new software and create ago key that he says, in the wrong hands, could make all iphones vulnerable to hackers. >> our smartphones are loaded
7:16 am
with our intimate conversations, our financial data, our health records. they are also loaded with the location of our kids in many cases. >> reporter: cook says apple has cooperated with law enforcement, but contends investigators made a crucial error by telling farook's employer, san bernardino county, to reset his icloud password. apple says that limited the information that could be retrieved but even with the password change, the fbi says there may still be information on the phone that would not be accessible without apple's assistance. >> if a court can ask us to write this piece of software think of what else they ask us to write. maybe an operating system for surveillance, maybe it's the ability for the law enforcement to turn on the camera. this is not what should be happening in america. >> i think this is going to be a question for the american people and their congress to decide if we want to make these communications devices immune to warrants when we know that they
7:17 am
are used in crimes all the time. >> reporter: cook and bill gates agree that this issue will congress. >> eventually, as it has been with the patriotic act, this will all be subject to democratic discussion. >> reporter: today, fbi director james comey will be on capitol hill where he is expected to discuss the government's case norah? >> jeff, thank you. the debate continues. isis this morning is threatening two silicon valley titans. a new video purportedly made by supporters of target, mark zuckerberg and zach dorsey. the propaganda video is in response to facebook and twitter suspending accounts and removing posts that promote terrorism. president obama is tamping down expectations about the partial truce in syria that takes effect at midnight on friday. syrian government troops are fighting in a suburb outside of damascus. the assad regime says the area
7:18 am
is excluded from the cease-fire because al qaeda-linkeded group is there. our elizabeth palmer got a firsthand look on the lines above and on the ground. >> reporter: how confident is the syrian army right now? well, enough to have a group of local journalists tour their latest victory. a half of a square mile of total destruction and five miles from the center of dah mass mus. mascus damascus. this general leads the way through what used to be family a sniper was right here only yesterday, he says. we are in the suburb of daria. the army says 24 hours ago, it pushed the opposition fighters half a mile back to the next cluster of buildings. now they are pounding them with machine guns and from the air. overhead, the sound of the helicopters scouting its target.
7:19 am
they are using barrel bombs, cheap and deadly. are there any civilians left no, he says. there aren't. in fact, by now, almost everyone has fled. bombs smashed this area to bits. the opposition fighters only survived by going underground into a network of tunnels. this is the road. the soldiers showing us around, this one explains this tunnel was under the main road. you can see the black strike that gave extra protection. the army says the fighters here were with al qaeda-linked al nusra not in this weekend's cease-fire so no let up on this world of the suburbs of damascus. great reporting there.

airline passengers could see a very different kind of seat on planes in the future. aircraft maker airbus has filed a patent for a new kind of adjustable seat and it could allow airlines to cram even more people into each row or change the seating to make room for larger passengers. and the change could come with new fees. kris van cleave is at the
7:44 am
national air and space museum in washington. >> reporter: good morning. back when the dc-7 was flying airline seats were spacious. take a look over here. about 20 inches which is not too bad. by the jet age, they had shrunk down to 17 1/2 inches and in the years since, they have gotten even smaller and shrinking down yet another inch in space. now, this new seating concept could usher in a day where the airlines could truly price by your size. as americans have gotten larger and their airline seats smaller, it's not made flying any easier. >> oh, they are too close, yes. especially if they are heavy people or big people. >> reporter: some overweight passengers even find themselves being shamed on social media. now jetmaker airbus is looking to patent this seating concept that could let airlines create what would essentially be a fee for larger passengers, just don't expect them to call it that. this bench seating concept would

speculate he hasn't made as much money as he says. who knows? because he hasn't released his tax returns. i do think mitt has a good point, that the voters are entitled to know before they vote because you better believe the democrats, if there is anything in there, the democrats are going to go to town on this one. >> donald trump said last night that his tax returns are, quote, extremely complex and he will make a decision at the right time. he tweeted this this morning. mitt romney, who is one of the dumbest and worst candidates in the history of republican politics, is now pushing me on tax returns. dope. >> certainly a topic in the debate tonight, no doubt. 53 democratic delegates at stake in saturday's south carolina primary, that is a practicalion of those available on super tuesday. bernie sanders is rallying people in super tuesday states and beyond. the theme at his rallies has not turned into voter turnout which is lower than 2008 so far.

8:08 am
>> there is not very much and this is precisely what we are talking to faculty about and what they should not do in the classroom is express their displeasure of students bringing guns to class. >> reporter: some faculty and students say they must establish sensible guidelines while complying with the new law. >> we know there are concerns about safety on campus and we will do everything we can do to protect the members of our community. >> we are students. we are not criminals. >> reporter: sophomore edwin is running for student body president. >> i do not have my concealed carry license yet. >> reporter: will you apply for one? >> yes, sir. >> reporter: to obtain a handgun license in texas, applicants must be 21 years old. the initial application fee is $140 and the process requires up to six hours of classroom training and a written exam and shooting test. it seems like there are many professors who feel they can't have a robust debate on this

8:15 am
an extraordinary legal battle in britain is getting worldwide attention. a woman wants to carry the eggs of her daughter who died of cancer and she hopes to give birth to a grandchild. the court is allowing her to ban the appeal. they believe the daughter, quote, expressed a strong wish to her mother that one or more of her eggs after being fertilized should be plant in her mother who would give birth to the baby. >> in a statement to "cbs this morning," the 60-year-old mom says we know the chances of conceiving a grandchild are very small, but in the unlikely event we are successful, it would mean the birth of a child who would be loved and cherished by us and the rest of our family. cbs news legal expert rikki this. first of its kind. >> first of its kind. >> she was their only daughter so they are saying this is the would. >> yes.
8:16 am
about their desire to have a grandchild. it should only be about their now decease daughter's wishes. >> what did she say about that? >> it depends on who you believe. because she could have said in we call a special direction in britain, there is a form where if you want your eggs to survive after your death, that part she signed, you can also sign a special direction, which then would have said i want my mother to be able to carry my eggs and have my child because my parents were such great parents. she never signed that. now, originally, what happens is you're in a clinic. the clinic hat eggs s the eggs and the clinic is put in a situation we can't export these eggs to the u.s. without a real directive. the reason they have to export
8:17 am
uk who is going to do this in vitro fertilization, but the punitive grandmother said she did find a clinic in new york that will take these eggs. >> is the grandmother going to carry it? >> the grandmother wants to carry the eggs herself. now, she says that is her daughter's dying wish. let you appeal which is a reversal of another judge's decision saying, no, you can't. and the reason they say that is the mother says, which is really the punitive grandmother, if we can get this right. >> i understand the legal argument but her daughter died. you know? >> it feels creepy and touching at the same time. is that possible? >> exactly right. i think both of those words are really well taken. in britain they have said this is unseenly and we should not have a 60-year-old mother giving
8:18 am
birth from her own body of her own daughter's eggs. then you get back to the issue why it's touching or disturbing is whose life is it any way? if the daughter really had this desire that her own mother would be the best parents for her own child, then there is something to be said for her decision about what to do with this. >> she knows her mom. >> well, she knows her upbringing. >> suppose they rule in the couple's favor and it goes forward. what are the precedents that it sets? >> i think it's an interesting precedent in britain, because we have never had a grandmother carry a daughter's eggs. whether or not it would be a precedent in the u.s. remains undecided because here we look, contract informed consent and written agreement always controls. >> thank you. >> really interesting. rikki klieman, thank you. adele gets another shot after her glitch-filled grammy performance. her appearance on the stage of the brit awards.

8:35 am
american women stand to win their fifth gold medal. she told "sports illustrated," quote, if i had to make the choice today, i wouldn't go. the two-time olympic medalist is here at the table. hope solo, good morning. >> good morning. and thank you all for having me. >> we are glad you're here. >> how do you feel today? will you go to rio? >> well, you know, i feel very fortunate that i don't have to make the decision today. i hope that a lot of things can happen in five months. i'm a little bit skeptical, to be honest. news came out today that things probably could get worse before they get better. so it's scary. and i have a lot of reservations going to the olympics. but, like i said, i don't have to make the decision right now. there is a lot of unknowns and i hope that we get some clear, concrete answers very soon. >> what specifically concerns you about the zika virus? >> i just think there is a lot in life to worry about as it stands, that, you know, at some
8:36 am
point, i do want to start a family. and i don't want to be worried. i don't want the anxieties. i don't want the constant tests. i don't want to risk the safety of a child, the health of a child. it's just a scary time, and there is really no clear answers to it. so until i know more, i don't really feel like i can make a really informative decision. >> if things are like they are, you probably wouldn't go sfl. >> as things stand like they are right now, i probably would not go. >> to your teammates feel the same? >> i think everybody is just trying to get a lot of information right now, so i don't think anybody is making any irrational decisions. but you have to understand that my team is filled with different age ranges and different personalities and some people don't want to have families, some people do. i think for the most part, we are all based on winning the olympics. it's never been done before after winning a world cup. first and foremost, we want to be back-to-back champions. it's never been done before!
8:37 am
i want to be a part of that! >> i always wanted to ask you this. you've been called the best goalkeeper in the history of the women's national team. >> in the green room, they were saying in the world. in the world! >> do you agree with that? >> in the world! own it, hope, own it! >> i feel fortunate. >> if that is true, what makes you so good as a goalkeeper? what makes a great goalkeeper? >> oh, gosh. i still ask myself that day in and day out. goal keeping is a very difficult decision. you're kind of a hero or the goat. five setups in olympic qualifications but qualifications to me are not that busy. we are playing some poorer countries and some country who don't really build the women's game, who feel honored to be on the field with us because they know that in their country, women don't really play sports. so we are beating these teams who they don't really have a lot of resources in their countries.
8:38 am
action so i got these five shutouts but i didn't feel like i earned all of them. >> they are also saying people in your position in their 30s peak. you're going to be 35. do you even feel like you're even close to peaking? >> well, where i was going with that is goal keeping is something that you can never really master. there are so many details and intricacies and mental game more than anything else. i stay focused. >> that is the exciting part about it. >> it is. and why i never want to walk away because there is always something new to learn and always a challenge. anybody who knows me, know i love challenges. >> as a little girl, did you think you would be doing this? maybe not world champ but did you think you would be doing this? >> yeah. i was 12 years old and i read a paper that said when i want to grow up, i want to be a professional soccer player. >> they didn't have that there. how could you dream something that was not there? >> it was in the '90s, not the '80s. i wrote it and there was no
8:39 am
i had this gigantic dream that wasn't in the realm of possibilities at the time and, by god, it happens. you know, we have a long way to go to push for women's sports and women's equalities but i dreamt something at the age of 12 that didn't even exist and i was able to go on and become a professional soccer player. >> i want to ask you about that very point, because after the world cup win, it was reported your team would earn just $2 million, the team. while the winning german men's team won two times more than that in 2014. what do you think it will get to get equal pay in sports? >> it's going to be a long road. i'm very proud of -- we had a great summer, you know? we crushed the ratings. we had an incredible following worldwide. but it wasn't enough to make people say things need to change. >> for fifa to change. >> it opened people's eyes up,
8:40 am
every step along the way. whether it's cba negotiations and standing as a team and that's really hard to do as women because we tend to get pressure. so i'm proud of my team. i'm proud of all of us coming what? this is a time we need to push for equality and push for what is right and people are paying attention. do? i don't know. you know? i want to start a family. we will start there. know. i put my life and passion into goal keeping and this team. i've been on this team for 16 years. >> we would like to see you one more time out there. >> it's scary. life after soccer is scary and i think any athlete who tells you anything else, i don't think they are speaking the truth. i will admittedly express my fears. >> great to have you. >> we will be watching. we will be watching and hope you guys make it to the olympics. thank you. >> zika does not scare away our women's team. we want you there.
