>> a vetoroof minority. they can't stop the united states from participating in the deal, and that's obviously important to the president. colin powell coming on the show, former secretary of state, in a republican administration he had some very strong opinions about this deal, about sort of where the politics of foreign policy have gone. lamenting a little bit of the partisanship. he's pretty surprised at how the parties are essentially moving -- judging this deal based on their political persuasion rather than the details of the deal itself. >> and so much internationally riding on this deal, when you say something like that, it's really incredible. >> and, you know, anybody who sat in the office of secretary of state and, if you noticed, we haven't had -- this will be the first former -- the second former secretary of state, the first on the republican side, to come out and say where he is on the deal. so far not a single secretary of
state has come out against the deal because anybody that has sat in that chair when your whole is about international agreements and diplomacy, you know that what happens here has ramifications overseas, and you see that more sometimes than if you're sitting on the back bench in congress. >> on the campaign trail hillary clinton, it seems like we just keep getting dribs and drabs about the e-mail controversy and it's really not going away. >> it's not and, look, the question is, has it taken a toll on her politically? new poll numbers, if you're following twitter we've seen them in both new hampshire and iowa and it's crystal clear. the most electable democrat in both swing states is joe biden. the person who performs best is joe biden. bernie sanders is surging in new hampshire and iowa. the collective toll this is taking on her politically now, i think, they're getting close to being in crisis mode, i think, in brooklyn.
>> can we fautalk about donald and jeb bush squaring off. >> labor day is the traditional start of the campaign season, let's put it in nfl terms. you have this preseason, mini camp, you have the preseason games. we've had that. this is now the regular season has begun. i think jeb bush knows his numbers are falling. he's got to show conservatives that he's tough. if he takes on trump, he's it tough enough to take on hillary clinton. that's what he's rolling the dice on. >> a good start from miami. >> and it was the way, very happy. a little shaky but, hey, we'll take it. it's a "w." rather not be my friends nebraska losing in a hail mary. that was rough. >> thank you, chuck. >> you can see "meet the press"
every sunday right after "news 4 today." well, we love this story. >> it's a great story. >> proof this morning that just a little gesture can make all the difference in the world. >> we want to show you what happens when two construction workers form a friendship with a tiny patient. >> reporter: sometimes what's built isn't in the blueprint. >> we got up about three floors and you could see the kids in the window waving at you. >> reporter: for 2-year-old vivian, those waves were a therapy that helped her forget the chemotherapy. her family got the heartbreaking news that vivian had acute lymphoblastic leukemia. >> i thought, well, i'm losing my little girl. >> reporter: a.l.l. is a cancer that affects the white blood cells, the ones that fight
infection and protect the body against disease. >> the doors remain closed. people come in with gowns and gloves and masks. >> reporter: so vivian's only way out was to look out. then on a day that was tougher than most, vivian and her mom went to the window and instead of waving saw the ironworkers pointing to this. written on one of the beams were get well soon, the little girl in the window had become a smelter for hearts. what were you thinking about? >> my kids and how precious life is. >> reporter: strangers becoming friends even though they'd never met. and then -- they finally did. >> i appreciate it. good to meet you guys. >> reporter: construction workers are known as tough guys but even they know they're not as tough as this little girl.
>> it touches you. sets you back realizing how good your own life is. >> reporter: vivian's recovery is still under construction. but she's feeling better thanks in part to two new friends and the room with a view. >> i love that story. >> everyone is rooting for little vivian there. >> i hope she does well. let's turn our attention to the weather. we are off to a little bit of a quick start today. going to get hot. >> only around 60 around dawn. it's jumping. that strong september sun is working on us heating us up. if you're about to head out the door, enjoy this day. we're in the low to mid-70s around the bay as well as in the shenandoah valley, still in the 60s to right around 70 degrees
