7:05 am
kristen welker is on the biden watch again for us this morning. kristen, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. from taking jabs at hillary clinton to talking about the importance of bipartisanship, vice president joe biden seemed to be laying out a defense of his record and a rationale for a candidacy. his supporters say they are ready to get to work. one thing missing, the candidate. in a night honoring former president jimmy carter and his vice president walter mondale, vice president joe biden touted his own close relationship with the current commander in chief. >> i spend five to seven hours a day with him every day for the past seven years, exswhept we were out of country. >> reporter: biden wasting no time seeming to take on democratic front-runner hillary clinton, flexing his muscles on foreign policy. >> john kerry is a great secretary of state. hillary clinton is a great secretary of state, but there are times when only the vice president if it's known of his relationship with the president can s
7:06 am
>> and for the third time in two days taking a veiled swipe at clinton who called republicans her enemies last week. >> it's mostly important that everybody in this room veunderstand the other team is not the enemy. wi >> reporter: earlier in the day biden raised eyebrows when he recounted his advice to president obama about whether to raid. >> i told him my inion, that i thought he should go but to follow his own instincts. >> reporter: but that account differs from biden's description to nbc news during an interview taped for the 2012 special "the situation room" when biden said he urge the the president to get more information first. >> i think there's time to do it before you move. >> reporter: but despite all the signs, biden remains undecided. the president of the powerful international association of firefighters and is in close contact with the vice president. >> we are preparing, as if the vice president is going to announce his canned circumstances and we would not
7:07 am
weren't fully ready and prepared to not only endorse but to work on behalf of that candidacy. >> reporter: secretary hillary clinton had south but failed to secure that union's endorsement and, of course, labor is a key constituency for democrats. sources say the vice president is taking yet another look at the big picture as he gets closer to making this decision. savannah, matt? >> all right, kristen welker, thank you so much. let's turn to msnbc political analyst nicolle wallace whoer is of the asled white house communications director for president george w. bush. nicole, good morning. >> good morning. >> biden in a moment and let's go back to pal ryan, our top story. this is so interesting saying i'll run for speaker under these five or so condition. is that good politics and secondly will it work? >> we've been looking for a full-out hero on our side quoting the "back to the future" anthem. he's taking a lot of consideration from the republicans and the hardliners
7:08 am
in the freedom caucus may respond to strength. now, they might not, but they have not responded to efforts to pacify them from speaker boehner and kevin mccarthy, so i think it was a moment -- everyone knows that paul ryan is of superior intellect. i think he showed his superior political skills. >> but you're talking about strength. he's using the ticking congress saying congress has a lot on its operate it has to deal with. we've got to get a decision on this and let me know by friday, but when you look at things coming up like the debt ceiling and spending like that what does his resume tell you? is he going to end up facing the same kind of showdown that von boehner faced. >> i think that was on his mind when he spoke to the country last night pause he said we will not be the party of opposition. we will be the party of proposition, so i think if he plans to go along -- you know, this is the majority of the republicans in congress. not the majority of republicans in the ondition try that want to shut down the g vernment and employ these tactics on the issues as serious as the ones just mentioned.
7:09 am
i think what he did by putting th ball back in their court. hey, get back to me, i'll do it but only if you're all behind me was absolutely brilliant. >> let's talk about vice president joe biden, if you forced me to take a guess up until yesterday i said, you know, he probably won't run. i have to say after he talked about the bin laden raid and kind of recasting his role and saying, well, you know, i did -- i did tell the president you should go for it, that sounds like a presidential candidates trying to burnish the image. >> and shoring up what he views as political vulnerability. listen, i am a joe biden fan. joe biden still has a lane to ruhn in. hillary clinton is formidable. we talked last week about how she did everything she had to do in hat debate, but she is still more head candidate than a heart candidate and i'm not sure if joe biden being the heart candidate of the democrats is enough to topple her, but it would certainly be a race. >> nicolle wallace, thank you so much. we want to remind everybody, by the way, matt is going to be hosting a town hall meeting with republican front-runner donald trump and new hampshire voters.
7:10 am
you questions for mr. trump. use the # rumptoday. let's turn now to a surprise visit overnight making headlines around the world. syrian leader bashar al assad meeting with russian president vladimir putin in moscow. nbc's key simmons has more on that. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. this is president sad's first time outside syria since t e war began and when he met with putin the aim may be to send a warning to washington and president obama signaling that the line between putin and assad is stronger than ever. president asaid seated next to president putin, the syrian leader's dramatic moscow visit announced for the first time this morning. assad arrived in secret last night. syria is russia's friend, putin said in a statement, wishing assad a warm welcome. contrast that with the tension between president obama and russia's leader last month.
7:11 am
the syrian people have been practically alone in putting up resistance and fighting these international terrorists, putin told his guests. russia's air campaign over syria has increased in recent days, moscow says, targeting what it calls terrorist extremist groups. on the ground that has meant striking both isis and rebels supported by the west. anyone opposed to assad. the talks overnight centered on coordinating military action in syria, the kremlin said, while the u.s. has agreed measures with russia to minimize the risk of accidents in the air. the pentagon making clear that cooperation does not mean u.s. support for russia's policy. >> we continue to believe that russia's strategy in syria is counterproductive and their support for the assad regime will only make syria's civil war worse. >> reporter: but the reply from moscow seems unmistakable. president putin did call for a political settlement, but washington and moscow are still fundamentally divided, matt,
7:12 am
over whether assad should go, and while president assad is already back home today, the very fact that he was prepared to travel, suggests, matt, that he feels more secure. >> keir simmons, thanks very much. to new mexico where police are trying desperately to track down a suspect in a chilling road rage shooting, and the victim was a 4-year-old girl. nbc's jacob rascon is on the story this morning. jacob, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. yet another incident of aggressive driving turned deadly. this time victim an innocent little girl, an conflicting witness accounts are making the search for a suspect that much more difficult. a search for suspects is under way this morning after police found this red truck pulled over on the highway. three people inside, including a 4-year-old girl, who was shot in the head. >> the 4-year-old child has passed away. >> reporter: authorities blame road rage. janell tafoya said she saw it happen >> the truck was literally going

's 100% preventable and did not have to happen, and we need to rise up as a community and say enough is enough. >> reporter: conflicting witness reports make it difficult to describe the vehicle that got away. >> we are begging for the community's help. >> reporter: search still on, an innocent life taken as aggressive driving once again turns deadly. the witness who talked to nbc news says that the other vehicle involved was a red sedan, but police have also heard other descriptions. they are simply begging anyone

here along with michael j. fox and leah thompson. a reunion of the "back to the future" cast in just a couple of minutes. >> first a check with natalie with the top stories this morning, the real one, nat, good morning. >> good morning to you guys, once again, and there could be a breakthrough this morning in a search for a new speaker of the house. wisconsin republican paul ryan te atively agreed late tuesday to run for speaker, but he attached several conditions. he said his divided party must unite behind him by friday so he won't have to fac constant leadership challenges. the married father of three young children said he will not give up his family time. vice president joe biden appeared to tout his presidential credentials on tutlesday as he prepared to announce whether he'll run for the white house at two events honoring former vice president walter mondale, biden spoke of his close working relationship with president obama. he said he, not the secretary of state, carries more weight when speaking to f eign leaders. biden also changed his version
8:03 am
saying he told the president he though he should do it. biten had previously said that he had urged the president to get more information first. syrian president bashar assad is back in damascus after a price trip to moscow overnight. the kremlen says russian president vladimir putin summoned assad to discuss how current military operations in syria can lead to peace and political stability. russia deepened its involvement in syria's civil war by launching air strikes last month. canada's new prime minister designate told president obama on tuesday that canada will withdraw from the u.s.-led bombing campaign against isis. justin trudeau said canada will continue to help train afghan forces. trudeau said that withdrawing canadian fighter jets fulfills a campaign promise. and a sailor and his cat are safe after a dramatic rescue off the coast of alaska. the man's sailboat lost its rudder and its rigging while being tossed around on 20-foot waves.

8:05 am
so what's the bottom line here? >> i'll tell you as a doctor and as a female i am angered and i am concerned. i think there's a lot of confusion about how often women should be screened and when they should begin, and i think that the american cancer society has tried to set up guidelines where we're moving away from a one-size-fits-all type of screening to a more personalized or individualized type of screofening. >> which sounds good. >> which sounds good. >> however. the issues really are -- they are -- their guidelines are directedodowards the average risk woman, a woman who has no family history, no genetic predisposition, but in those patients that's where we find most of our breast cancers. only 15% of the cancers that we find actually have a family history. the remainder are all sporadic events, and now we're -- they are asking us to take these patients and start screening later. that means we'll find breast cancers much larger.
8:06 am
screening earlier as for years and years was the recommendation, at 40 every year you do your mammogram. >> right. so what they say are the downsides and what they are trying to move away from are what we call false positives and overdiagnosis. in terms of false positives, these are finding things on mammography where we need to call a patient back for either an additional view or an ultrasound and that really only happens in 10% of cases. with our new digital imaging, we are much better at decreasing the number of false positives, but, still, yes, 1% to 2% will wind up with a biopsy, but can i tell you in my practice and generally speaking to physicians that take care of patients, we are able to with those additional views limit patient having biopsies and when they do have a biopsy and it's benign, they breathe a sigh of relief, and no one would want to miss finding breast cancer early. >> i'm out of time but i have to
8:07 am
ask, always an admonition, talk to your doctor and get a mammogram if you want, but will insurance pay for it if it's not a recommendation? >> right now these are guidelines and nothing is written in stone. talk to your doctor. we don't know what insurance companies will do. there's a lot of uncertainty and there's a lot of anger. >> appreciate it. thanks very much. matt, over to you. >> coming up, the former oscar host who could be returning to that role next year, and we're going back in time with an

8:19 am
idea that i got to play a character that was madly in heat for her own son. >> i'm glad you switched that. >> which was pretty much, you know, i think why the film was rejected in a lot of -- definitely by disney. i just thought it was like a crazy story, and it was a perfect script. >> when you have names like robert zemekis and steven spielberg attached to the project, does that take a lot of fear out of it? >> absolutely. when i came in there was another actor who did like nine weeks on the movie and then they brought me in and so i -- i didn't seene lot of the early foundational stuff that was done. i kind of got thrown in and got the script and read it and thought it was fantastic and then i was on the set shooting and it was like it happened so fast so i kind of discovered in th process of doing, it wow, these guys know their stuff. it was just an amazing experience. >> christopher, you said that when you saw michael on set and
8:20 am
together, it was a version of love at first sight. tell me about it. >> well, they often ask you about the chemistry. i just felt we had chemistry from he instant we walked on the set. >> the so shameless. >> so happy to see each other, but -- but never had to be manufactured. nobody had to say, you know, work for this kind of, you know, chemistry. it just was there. it was innate, and -- and it was wonderful. >> let me go back to what you said a second ago, lea. you have to remember you were playing lorraine, a character works technically falls in love with her own son. >> literally. >> literally that. can have a huge ick factor to it if not taken and playen the right way. >> right. >> and yet you play it for laughs. how hard was it in. >> well, you know, it was the '80s i was not lorraine mcfly so it was interesting to get to that weird kind of -- i had to sing "mr. sandman" to get into
8:21 am
character. mr. sandman and i would get into this weird thing that she was in, and to make that character work, to make it innocent yet, you know, horny. >> she was like a delorean filled with hormones this, girl. >> yeah. >> what lines do people recite to you all the time when they come up to you if thiy want to talk about "back to the future," is there a line of yours that they always say to you, christopher? >> oh, where we're going we don't need roads. >> lea. >> you're my density. >> you're my density. >> and mcfly, you irish bug. >> yeah, yeah. >> and mcfly, you irish bug. >> october 21st, 2015, significant in the second movie because that's the date you go to in the future, and, of course, a lot of the people now like to go back and look at things that were predict the in the move to see if they came true. i'll go through the list. you raise your hanchltds true or not true, hover boards. >> yes they are true. in canada they kind of have one.

8:31 am

8:33 am
>> we are back at 8:38. time for our special series what the heck areauou eating where we give you healthier options to some of our favorite foods. this morning frozen yogurt is on joy lawyer's menu. >> there's nothing like a creamy dreamy frozen dessert, and in response to our love affair with ice cream and determination to stay slim and fit frozenerogurt shops can be found on practically every street corner and in every shopping mall but is frozen yogurt really better than ice cream? check this out a medium fro-yo with two tablespoons of each chocolate sprinkles and granola clocks in at 400 calories,
8:34 am
eight chocolate chip cookies or an indulgent slice of apple pie and for comparison sake the same size of full fat ice cream with calories. feel a brain freeze coming on? i'm not surprised. here's what you need to know. first, the difference between ice cream and frozen yogurt. regular ice cream is are a mix of full fat dairy products, classically cream and whole milk oumingled with sugered a and flavoring. to be considered ice cream, it must contain at least 10% milk fat, but many popular brands have significantly more fat which drives up the calories. on the other hand, light or reducedfat ice cream and frozen yogurt are made with the very same ingredients as regular ice cream but this time manufacturers use low-fat or fat-free dairy products in the mix, and typically the swap from full fat to low-fat dai w drives the calories way down.
8:35 am
so these lighter options tend to be much more figure friendly. frozen yogurt differs from ice cream because it has yogurt cultures added. these cultures can help increase the good bacteria in your stomach and reduce the risk for certain digestive issues. all things considered, frozen yogurt and light ice cream end up being pretty darn similar, so i say go for whichever you prefer best. and if you're eating it regularly, stick with a small and enjoy one tablespoon of any delicious topping to avoid packing on the pounds. that original calorie portion wh h weighed in at 400 is now just 180. light, lean and satisfying. now that you know what the heck you're eating e oy every dreamy creamy bite. mmm. >> joy, i can't believe you let us have topping, i'm in shock. >> first of all, i'm crazy for all thingsize cream, frozen
8:36 am
was on a mission to make this work. >> what do we have here. >> a few tricks for cditrolling portion size because that tend to trip people up. when you're at home scooping in hard packs, invest in some pretty smaller ramekins or bowl because one scoop, which is about half a cup serving that's what the nutrition stats are for and will look much more visually appealing. if this was in a larger bowl it would look measly and then you add a second or third and then the calories and sugar skyrocket. >> what's this? >> we're at a frozen yogurt shop. i made two look-alike frozen yogurt. the same, vanilla, this is 200 and this one is only 100 calories, how come, cafna, what did i do, oh, i know what you did. >> you put fruit in the bottom of one of those. >> i know you, joy bauer and the little tricks. >> fill the bottom portion of the cup with fruit and then you'll substantially decreates calories but you'll still have the nice hardy portion.
8:37 am
>> a good idea. we know that cups are calorie free so what about cones, this cone is a waiver cone, just 20 calories and standard sugar cone no big deal and when you get up to a waffle cone, this is a little bit more, 160, and if it's chocolate covered it's in danger territory and 320. look how big it is. >> it's huge. >> we love topping. >> when it comes to fresh fruit go for it. they are super low callry. other th fresh fruit the best most healthiest topping will be granola, nuts and dark chocolate tips. all of the toppings, even the not so healthy topping like marshmallow and oreos and sprinkles, whatever you put in on average will clock in at about 50 calories per table spoofnlt keep in mind when you that is pre paring it for you will generally put on two tablespoons per request so just say one table spoofn whatever
8:38 am
you want and you're good to go. not so bad. i'm not so bad. >> you aren't that bad. >> what an endorsemen joy, thank you so much. >> i mean, i'm great. >> we love her. find all of her tips and recipes on today.com. coming up next, kate hudson live in studio 1a. after trying brookside chocolates, @pam cakes v tweeted: "leave it to me to drop a brookside down my shirt & lose it." you didn' t lose it. you saved it for later.

we're back. it's 8:52 on pink power. att star whose mother died of ovarian cancer and he has a special project and our special correspondent joan lunden has more on this. good morning, joan. >> good morning, savannah. i spent time with patrick dempsey for the demsey challenge where thefiempsey family come together for their community and in memory of his mother amanda. >> do not run over patrick and
8:47 am
>> the dempsey challenge is a run, walk and cycle fund-raising event to raise money for the patrick dempsey center for cancer hope & healing. >> that's all profit that goes to the center so that all the services are free so it's remarkable. >> since 2008 the dempsey center provides support, education and wellness services from massage to financial advice to anyone impacted by cancer for free. it was dempsey's mom who inspired his family to start the center. >> it was i think 1997 that your mom, am weanda, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. >> the my sister called and said that mom had been diagnosed with cancer. she had ovarian cancer and the tumor was the size of a grapefruit and that she needed to go into surgery immediately. >> dempsey's mother battled her cancer for many years, but she also volunteered at the center. plus, she was kind of like mother hen to everybody who came in here. >> my mother would certainly control it, yes.
8:48 am
that was part of her thing, but, yeah, i thought -- i think it meant more to her than she could verbalize, and she wanted to give back, and she was incredibly vulnerable that always had a strong facade, you know, and for her to come back as a volunteer meant a lot to her and it meant a lot to the people in the community that she was here, too. >> all right. >> here we are. >> here we go, everyone. >> she led the survivor walk every year. she was really a symbol of hope in this community, wasn't she? >> she was a tremendous symbol of hope in this community. >> the center is locate in the dempsey's hometown of the lewiston, maine. >> did you act at all in school? >> i did a little bit of community theater and i was in a vaudnteville troupe and did some juggling. >> little known fact about patrick dempsey. you left here, did i hear something about a unicycle at one point or something? >> yes, because i wanted to ski. >> and juggling, you juggled. >> i did. >> do you still juggle. >> yes.
8:49 am
>> dempsey went on to act, including his mcdreamy role in "grey's anatomy" and compete in professional auto racing, but he always makes time to come back home. >> what's it like to come back here and for all these theme see the hometown boy? >> there's a huge embrace from the community, and you just connect to everybody, someone who is in the midst of fighting cancer and then it becomes, wow, this is really special. >> in 2014, dempsey's mother lost her battle with cancer. >> well, your mom would be very, very proud. >> she would say sit up straight and could you shave. >> it's a family affair for dempsey who brings his kids to join in the fund-raising event. >> it's great to celebrate life with the survivors and the journey that they have been through. >> this year there were almost 4,000 participants in the dempsey challenge, raising over $1.1 million. >> if your mom was here now, what would you say to her?
8:50 am
>> you know, i think it wouldn't be in words. i think it's just in behavior with my mother. that would be not so much said to her but in the behavior and in the actions of what we're doing as a family and in her honor i think. >> patrick likes to emphasize it's the community and the volunteers who make the real difference with this center and for you bridget jones fans, patrick is in the middle of filming the next chapter. all he would divulge is that he plays an american, not surprisingly a love interest and he may do a little juggling in the movie. >> that's a cliffhanger, joan. thank you so much.
