7:02 am
and good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. we've got willie in for matt this morning. >> exciting news for air travelers we didn't mention in that open. boeing is developing a plane next week that actually has overhead space. your bags will fit. >> ahh! we will show you that and tell you all about it coming up in just a few. first today's top story. this washington whiplash. congressional republicans in turmoil this morning after the man expected to be the next house speaker, congressman kevin mccarthy dropped out of the running, shocking everyone. could one congressman speaker be angling for the job now. peter, good morning. >> we want to talk about chaos at the capitol. right now, it is still unclear which republican will emerge as a unifying figure for the party. this morning, several high-profile republican members
7:03 am
vice presidential candidate, paul ryan to reconsider by throwing his hat in the ring. it's the question now consuming the capitol. who will inherit john boehner's gavel as house speaker. with kevin mccarthy's stunning decision to pull out of the race, all eyes are focused on paul ryan. ryan has insisted he's not interested. but late thursday, wouldn't rule out a run. >> this is not the time or place, guys. >> reporter: still, ryan may be the only candidate who could reunite house republicans. >> maybe we could dissuade paul. >> reporter: the speaker doesn't have to be a member of congress, which explains why newt gingrich who resigned after a decade ago said he would consider a return. >> there are moments you can't avoid. >> reporter: this week, a
7:04 am
any candidate for leadership who has committed misdeeds should withdraw from the race. but mccarthy dismissed that as his reason for exiting. boehner said he will stay on as a replacement for the coming weeks facing a staggering to do list. just weeks left to pass a spending bill to keep the government open raised the country's debt limit or face default and pass a critical bill to repair america's roads. democrats warned the disarray comes with consequences. >> we're concerned the board of directors of the greatest country on the face of the earth is dysfunctional and unable to even select a leader. >> reporter: on the campaign trail, donald trump gave himself a pat on the back for mccarthy's move. >> they're giving me a lot of credit for that, because i said you really need somebody very, very tough and very smart. >> reporter: less than 24 hours after mccarthy's stunning announcement, house republicans will huddle behind closed doors
7:05 am
who is next and whatever the path forward looks like. savannah, willie, back to you. >> peter alexander, thank you. >> chuck todd is moderator of "meet the press." good morning. about this time looked like the guy who is the next speaker of the house, stunned a lot of republicans in that room. how shocked were you to hear this news? >> well, look, i wasn't shocked that mccarthy was going to struggle. i thought that his future was going to be at the benghazi committee, meaning if hillary clinton got the best of the benghazi committee, then i thought his speakership candidacy was in trouble. i guess i'm shocked he didn't try to see if he could get the votes he needed by the end of the month. so on that front, what happened yesterday clearly shocking. >> so what happens next? you have a vacant job over there in the house of representatives. the speakership, it's a powerful job. and yet you don't have people falling all over themselves to fill it. >> nobody wants it for the very reasons why john boehner is leaving the job. the place is impossible to run right now.
7:06 am
it's going to be impossible to run during a presidential election year. the same forces that are dividing the republican party, trump, carson, fiorina, from bush. these are the forces in the house that are basically saying we don't want the same people running the house. so i think that that's -- i think mccarthy was going to be boehner 2.0. a lot of conservatives saw that and that's why they were trying to torpedo this thing. >> the name on everyone's lips is paul ryan, the running mate to mitt romney, highly respected among conservatives on the hill, the guy who also said i don't want this job. what are the odds he ends up being the speaker? >> i think they're getting higher and higher. paul ryan is a man who can be convinced of things, saying you've got to do it for the party. and i think the best scenario that those that want ryan to do this is basically saying, hey, you only have to do the job to the end of '16.
7:07 am
do whatever it takes to be -- toeyfix this thing for now. i think the scenario is, ryan will do this, but only temporarily. >> you may have to answer that call. chuck todd, thank you, sir. democratic presidential candidate, senator bernie sanders will be chuck's guest this sunday on "meet the press." >> bernie sanders and hillary clinton could have some new competition in the n t few days. vice president joe biden still considering jumping into the race and could make a decision as early as this weekend. but the political hour is getting late. nbc's kristen welker is in biden's hometown, wilmington, delaware. good morning to you. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. confirms he will be mgiting in wilmington over the weekend to discuss a possible run, well aware the clock is ticking. and it comes as the super pac that supports biden is pulling its first tv ad at the vice president's request. >> things can change in a hernartbeat. >> reporter: it's the emotional ad the sup
7:08 am
pac draft biden hoped would urge the vice prllesident into entering the 2016 race. but now the super pac, unaffiliated with biden, has pulled the ad at the vice president's request. according to the "ljo.a. times," biden felt it treads on sacred ground. >> we were christmas shopping -- >> reporter: it aims at biden's resilience when a car crash killed his wife and daughter, and left his two sons seriously injured. biden, who had just been elected to the u.s. senate for the first time, decided to serve amid his tragedy. >> by focusing on my sons, i found my redemption. >> reporter: in a statement, the senior adviser to the group said nobody has more respect for the vice president and his family than we do obviously, we will honor his wishes. >> it is really my family and i have the emotional energy to run. >> reporter: it also comes as

7:11 am
turning down the invitation. >> on principle, i find that we -- i am, you know, in -- in disagreement with his policies on gun control, and therefore we will not be attending the visit. >> reporter: a call for protest on a facebook page called "defend roseburg," telling residents it's okay to bring a firearm to show that american gun owners are responsible patriots. today the president, protests and prayers. no matter where they stand on gun control, roseburg residents seem united in one thing. they don't want this tragedy turned into a political football. >> miguel almaguer, thank you so much. north korea is preparing to put on a major show of force today to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the ruling party. bill neely is in the capitol city of pyongyang this morning, a place very few people ever get to see.
