>> on "cbs this morning." didn't mean to steal your >> on "cbs this morning." [ applause ] captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." forecasters are predicting another round of violent storms today in the south and the midwest. it could bring even stronger tornadoes to the same region where 13 people were killed earlier this week. >> the most severe threat extends from louisiana all the way to ohio through tomorrow morning. elaine quijano is in kentucky this morning, which was hit by two tornadoes on wednesday. elaine, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, to you, erica and charlie. as you can see behind me, this neighborhood here took a direct hit earlier this week and residents have not even really had a chance to start cleaning up. well, now they are bracing for what could be another round of devastating storms. melissa clark and her family scrambled to salvage their
7:04 am
belongings thursday while the skies were still clear. >> now there are storms rolling in again. >> i know. it's awful. we've worked all day to get as much as possible out. obviously, we don't have any roof whatsoever. >> a tornado tore through her home in kentucky wednesday sucking almost everything with it. the system was part of the same string of killer tornadoes that roared a kro the midwest and south. clark wasn't home at the time. but she's pregnant and this ordeal is taking its toll. >> we have a baby in eight weeks. so, you know, to not have a home to bring him home to, it's pretty stressful. >> today's storm is threatening to unleash even more devastation with potentially stronger twisters. at jennifer mayfield's house, there's not much left to destroy. >> there's not much more damage it can do to my house. if it levels it, it's probably less i pay for cleanup. she collected what she could thursday with help from her church friends. she feels blessed she lived
7:05 am
through wednesday's storms. her pastor has faith they'll make it through the next round. >> the same god that we trusted will be the same one we trust through the next storm and the next storm and the next storm. >> now, forecasters are especially worried about what this round of storms will bring late tonight into early tomorrow morning. that is a big concern because experts say that nighttime tornadoes are more likely to be deadly than daytime ones. erica and charlie? >> elaine, thanks. we now turn to politics and the race to super tuesday. 11 states will be voting in just a few days. as always, it will be a crucial day in the presidential nominating race. >> one important question for the republican candidates, how do to get female voters on their side. political correspondent jan crawford is in cleveland in the very important state, of course, of ohio. jan, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, erica. we've really seen social issues move to the front burner in this campaign and rick santorum is capitalized on that to win
7:06 am
several states. the question now for santorum is how does he walk that line? how does he continue to appeal and galvanize the base while still reaching out to independents and women voters. >> in michigan this week, santorum talked about women, specifically the three he said have been roll role models, his wife, daughter and his 93-year-old mother. a nurse he described as a pioneering working mom. >> she was a very unusual person at that time. she was a professional who actually made more money than her husband. i grew up with a very strong mom. >> it's all part of an effort to connect and win over women voters. as santorum surged in the polls with his conservative views, he could be facing a gender gap. in michigan, he lost among women voters by five points, which helped give romney the win. he isn't watering down his views. thursday he accused romney of being insincere on social issues
7:07 am
like the controversial obama administration decision that would force religious organizations in institutions like catholic hospitals to provide employees birth control, even if it violates their religious believes. >> a lot will tell you what kind of presence you're going to be when you haven't been properly briefed by your consultants and you're asked what's really going on here. >> romney has stumbled on the issue in an interview wednesday when he seemed to indicate he opposed a senate bill that would have exempted religious employers from being forced to provide employees birth control. romney quickly corrected himself saying he misunderstood the reporter's question. >> i clearly want to have religious exemption from obama care. >> indeed on many social issues, romney's views aren't that different from santorum's. but santorum has taken a more forceful issues like abortion. saying those could -- in a cincinnati radio interview,
7:08 am
santorum bristled that his views would hurt him. >> here's a question senator. >> let's stop right here. what i talked about was my personal beliefs. >> santorum is really seen his numbers rise when he talks about his blue collar roots and alliance himself with the working man and the working woman. of course frk the challenge now for him going forward is to continue doing that, to say what he means. which voters also like. while also reaching out to those women voters. >> jan, thank you very much. with us now is former hewlett-packard ceo and former senate candidate in california now former vice chair of the republican senatorial committee carla fiorina. >> good morning, charlie. >> what do republicans have to do to win the women's vote which they did not do in 2008? >> first i have to say that i object to the term woman's vote.
7:09 am
because women are a huge andy verse population. mare the majority of the vote. we don't talk about the men's vote. >> right. >> secondly, i think it's -- women care about the economy, they care about their own jobs, they care about their children's future jobs, they care about -- every issue in the election with -- >> with respect, when people analyze polls, they break down men into all kinds of different categories and they break down women and they break down ethnic backgrounds and all that. you understand that. you've been a a politician. no one is saying they're single issue voters, but they want to understand how particular issues have impact. you are seeing, in terms of different candidates, different kinds of appeals to voters and you see romney. >> absolutely. to men and to women. >> right. what are the important issues you think in terms of the
7:10 am
republican primary, whether they're economic or social that are making a difference in. >> well, i think economic issues make a difference to everyone, including to women. and i think, as you've just heard when rick santorum is talking about how to recover manufacturing, for example, he is landing with women. a lot of women care about social issues. whether they are pro choice or pro life. i think a lot of this actually is about tone. do candidates reach out to women and treat them and their views with respect. do they pigeonhole them or cubby hole them at single issue voters or do they view them as full participants in society. i think women care a lot about compassion. the goal here is to lift people out of poverty, as many as possible. i think it's a question of tone and i think it's a question of making sure that, to women as well as to men, candidates are
7:11 am
talking about the whole range of issues that matter to a woman, to her family and to her community. >> we have a new poll from ohio suggesting that santorum winning 35-31 in ohio. where do you think the race is now between former senator santorum and former governor romney? >> if i knew that -- this race has been a roller coaster ride. one of the reasons is, honestly, is because the issues are very important. the issues are very important. so voters want to really understand who they're voting for. and so voters put their candidates, whether they're democrats or republicans, we happen to be talking about a republican presidential primary, voters put their candidates through their paces. and i think we're going to see that continue. >> there's fairly controversial sound from rush limbaugh, this may be nothing new. but as you talked about tone
7:12 am
being important and how you're addressing women being important, i want to listen to this and get your reaction. >> what does it say about the college co-ed susan fluke who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex. what does that make her? it makes her a prostitute. we wants to be paid to have sex. >> there is now a call obviously for the comments to be repute yated. he was referring to this woman who was testifying about birth control, but as a health measure for women who mentioned a friend of hers. how does that reflect what the republicans are trying to get. >> that language is insulting in my opinion. it's incendiary and most of all, it's a distraction. it's a distraction from what are
7:13 am
very real and important issues. you know, the senate had an important vote yesterday. there are some who are calling this a vote on a woman's right to choose and a woman's access to contraception. i think that's fundamentally backwards. this is a vote about protecting the conscience clause, which used to have broad bipartisan support. that's a hugely important issue in this country. so those kinds much comments are completely distracting. >> carly fiorina, thank you. >> thanks for being here. iran is holding parliamentary elections today. it is the first major vote since president mahmoud ahmadinejad was re-elected in 2009. that led to mass row tests and a government crackdown. elizabeth palmer is in tehran this morning where iranian leaders are calling for a large turnout. liz, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, the run-up to the election and in fact the election itself has been pretty subdued. that is because the process was
7:14 am
strictly controlled. of about 5,000 candidates who wanted to run, 2,000 were disqualified at the outset. that certainly included anybody who would call for furious reforms or challenge the system. iran's supreme leader made a dramatic entrance this morning at his own personal polling station when he cast his ballot live on national tv. he was also sending a message. voting is a patriotic duty. the regime wants a big turnout today to legitimize its anti-western position and its refusal to back down on its nuclear program. there are more than 3,000 candidates running for parliament, but all of them are conservatives. the liberal opposition that blossomed so dramatically in 20 aught has been crushed. its activists are deep underground and its leaders are under house arrest. no matter who wins today's
7:15 am
election, the hard liners will be in charge. this professor teaches politics at tehran university. >> iran's policy towards the united states would not be changed. iran's policy towards state of israel would not change. nothing will change. >> what is changing, though, is iran's response. the u.s. sanctions designed to pressure iran over its nuclear program are starting to hurt. the price of ground beef and tea is up by 50% since january and the price of eggs has more than doubled. because iranian currency lost nearly half his value again the u.s. dollar shall the cost of imported things like machinery or drugs is skyrocketing. >> are you worried? >> yes. of course. everybody is worried. >> a crisis that will only get worse as new, even tougher sanctions, targeting iran's oil revenue are due to take effect in june. as the hardship continues to
7:16 am
grow, the regime is betting that suffering citizens are not going to blame their politicians but blame bullying by the united states and israel as they call it. liz palmer in tehran this morning. thank you. in ohio, the alleged gunman in monday's school shooting is officially charged with killing three other students. the students returned to class this morning as michelle miller report, the boys' basketball team was back in action last night. >> it was the first chance in four days to be kids again. >> i have never been so happy to be a part of chardon as a community. >> hundreds of students, parents and fans got to watch the chardon basketball team on the court and forget what happened in another court. >> thomas m. lane, iii was charged with three counts of aggravated murder. >> this game was supposed to have been played monday, that was the day police say lane
7:17 am
opened fire in the high school cafeteria killing three stew tents and wounding two others. prosecutors have said publicly that t.j. lane chose his targets at random, but investigators tell cbs news that he knew his alleged victims well and that one of the key factors that may have led to the shooting is that the week before, lane's girlfriend had broken up with him and started dating one of the boys he allegedly killed. ohio court and police records reveal lane's home life was deeply troubled. his father, thomas n. lane served time in prison. his mother, did not at times live with children. >> never saw them playing or bee hafrg like children. >> this man lives across the street from where lane lived. the house has been empty since they moved away five years ago. the bedroom doors are padlocked on the outside. >> the house had been turned
7:18 am
into something that looked like a jail cell. >> but that mattersed a little less thursday night as they took on their conference rival. madison high school. the hilltoppers move on to the second round of the state plyoffs to get another shot at hope instead of heartbreak. michelle miller, cbs news, euclid, ohio. time to show you some of the headlines from around the globe. the miami herald reports on a school prayer bill approved in the florida legislature. it would allow students to lead "inspirational messages at school events." governor rick scott plans to sign the bill. opponents plan to sue if he does. u.s. auto sales have hit a four-year high as we see in the detroit free press. industry analysts say rising gas prices are outweighed by positive signs for the economy. >> this warmer than usual winter is affecting the cherry blossoms. those trees will start blooming earlier than usual, around march

7:31 am
>> with a black jeep cherokee flashing across the tarmac. >> what's going on on the right? >> i don't know. we're trying to check that out now. >> one flight had seconds to abort its landing. more than a dozen others drifted in a holding pattern as air traffic controllers at philadelphia international scrambled to communicate with pilots. >> we're stopping all airport movements at this time due to the situation on the field. >> i guess somebody is having fun. >> police say 24-year-old kenneth mazik was either drunk or high on drugs when he rammed his jeep through a chain-link gate. the ensuing chase at yesterday's busy hour of 11:00 shut down the airport for 30 minutes. >> just hold position. >> it's a black suv. >> in addition to dui and resisting arrest, mazik may face federal charges. it's an isolated incident with no link to terrorism.
7:32 am
a decade after 9/11, it's raising questions about airport perimeter security. >> terrorists remain fik ated on aviation. aviation has to maintain the highest levels of security. it does highlight a potential vulnerability which is why it needs to be reviewed and request i cannily. >> someone with more sinister intentions may look to exploit. for "cbs this morning," whit johnson, washington. senior correspondent john miller is with us now. he's led anti-terrorism efforts at the fbi and the lapd. welcome. >> good to be here. >> good to see you. >> how often and how easy is it for this to happen? >> well, security breaches, there's 25,000 security breaches since 9/11. but that's with 5.3 billion passengers over ten years. the actual perimeter breaches where a car wanders on like what we saw yesterday are pretty rare. the problem is, there's not much
7:33 am
of a way to stop them the way airports are configured. you look at philadelphia international airport like a lot of major airports has 40 unmanned access points around the perimeter. there are fences there and gates controlled by locks, key pads, touch pads, things like that. but as we saw yesterday, if you're going to drive a car through one of them, there's not much that can be done to stop it. that was demonstrated again. >> the interesting proposals, how to deal with the issue? >> the tsa has a $55 million program over five years for airport perimeter surveillance. but this is largely devices that show when a breach has happened as opposed to strengthening fences. i mean, right here at kennedy airport, we have a quarter mile stretch of the fence that's very vulnerable and a number of other holes. that's not uncommon. i'd like to take a look at a piece of individual crow tape out of dallas. this is august 19, 2010. this is a car chase. take a look at this. he's got three wheels, he drives
7:34 am
straight through the fence and you know, in real life there is very few things happen the way they happen in the movies. if you shoot a car, it doesn't blow up. when it comes to driving through a fence, if you're taking an suv or a truck and drive through one of those gates, you're probably going to take it down. >> how much -- as you said, there's not a whole lot they can do despite the plan to look at things. how much of a concern, though, is something like this that it could be some sort of a terrorist attack? >> whenever it happens, that's always the first assumption, which is probably the right way to think. so far it hasn't been. the proposals that are out there are, do you man each one of those posts? if so, do you man it with an armed person. if a truck is going to hurdle through the fence. >> what's that guy going to do? he can't stop a truck. >> pretty much. most police departments and security agencies are barred from shooting at moving vehicles because it's inherently
7:35 am
dangerous and it rarely works. what they'll look and philadelphia airport said they don't plan to make any changes. the overarching look will have to be what do we do to strengthen the gates in terms of reinforcing them. >> when you were head of anti-terrorism at the lapd, did you think about this as a threat? >> not only did i think about it, i devoted a day-long field trip to the airport where i had one of the officers from lapd bomb canine who knows the airport like the back of their hand drive me around the entire perimeter. it took half the day to do it and show me every access point. when you see how porus those places can be, trucks need access, the service providers, the maintenance people, the ship shippers. it can be surprising. >> i feel so safe now, john. >> well, it's a rare incident. >> i know. thank you. the costa allegra passengers are headed hom after a nightmare at sea. you'll hear from them and about

8:02 am
local legend. having caught the eye of college recruiters for his skills on the court and on the field. on march 3, 2011, with the game in overtime and the fennville blackhawks just one basket away from a perfect season, wes hit the game winning shot. the team hoisted their hero on their shoulders. moments later, wes collapsed. in the chaotic moments that followed, his mother jocelyn yelled for a defibrillatodefibr. when it was found. the batteries expired. wes was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead of cardiac arrest. >> was there a time when you found yourself going through the what ifs? >> yeah. eve had a couple of doctors saying once they looked at the autopsy that it was a heart that could have been restarted. >> are you ever angry that this
8:03 am
happened to you and to your family? >> angry? oh, i don't know. i get angry when i see people in stores and they call their kids stupid. that makes me angry. i think what a great parenting moment you're witnessing. i wish i had that moment. i get angry that we had a crowd of well over a thousand. we didn't do the right thing. i get angry about that. doesn't change anything. i just try to channel that into things i can change. >> these are just our awareness cards that we give. >> last spring, jocelyn created the wes leonard heart team. the goal, working automated external defib rayly tors in every school. >> michigan has them for the government in their offices and you have to have them in casinos. but no schools. so something happens you have to wait for the ambulance.
8:04 am
and for every minute, it's a 10% less chance of restarting the heart. >> aed's require no medical training and can shock a heart back into rhythm. dramatically increasing chances of survival. to date, the wes leonard heart team placed them in 25 michigan schools. >> this woman, her daughter died 23 years ago. >> the leonards received countless messages of support and comfort since wes's death. >> this is the christmas card we got from them. a nice -- >> 13-year-old brady was reluctant to have surgery to fix his heart murmur until he learned about wes. >> then the part i think means the most, brady asked mom, why did they not fix wes' heart. i explained they were not aware of his condition and he started crying. he said mom, i want to have my heart fixed. so ever since then, she wrote brady is wes's number one fan
8:05 am
without ever meeting him. >> as a way to say thank you, brady held a fundraiser at his school last week. >> you have a nice crowd. i walked in, i felt like i think wes could have attended hoor. i mean, there was so much love for him. it was supposed to be a bake sale or something and it's turned into a big group of goodness. >> goodness that raised more than $8,000 for the wes leonard heart team. in addition to the aed brady presented to jocelyn. >> i'm doing everything i can. on behalf of my son, my heart is breaking in half every time i talk about him. i miss him so much. >> wes' parents haven't missed a fennville game this season. their younger son mitchell now plays on the varsity team. >> we wouldn't miss him play. that's what they're for. it was a heart -- i never walked
8:06 am
over that side of the court again. i don't know if i ever will. you know, we kind of thought about what it would be like this one year when they would be in school together. i think they would have really enjoyed it, you know, playing together. yet, wes is always with her. his number 35 close to her heart. >> what do you want wes's legacy to be? >> we want to make sure that other kids don't -- this doesn't happen to them. i think that's what he would want me to do. he wasn't a quitter. he'd say mom, go make this right. >> about 900 americans die every day from sudden cardiac arrest. there is a bill in the michigan state senate that would mandate aeds in every school. the problem, the lawmaker told me who put it out there, it's an unfunded mandate. the chaps of getting it passed are slim. thomas lake is a senior writer for sports illustrated. his article about wes leonard. if you have not read it, highly recommend you do.
8:07 am
one of the things that came out in the article, you helped the leonard family learn this. what happened to mitchell? you got them that diagnosis about it being a condition with his heart, not virus. how had. >> well, i write a lot about people who have died and i try to find the autopsy report. if i can. here i took a look at it and sent it around to prominent cardiologists and one of them, dr. jeffrey tobin in cincinnati, said wait a second, this wasn't a virus. it was a rare genetic condition that causes heart to go from all to nothing like a collapsing bridge. which is why he was able to play so well all season and then it ended so quickly. >> i got to talk about his mom, guys. i know both of you spent time with mrs. leonard. i'm always touched by parents who can find a way to carry on after the death of a child to help someone else. what struck you about her, about the leonard family? >> just unbelievable courage.
8:08 am
you wouldn't blame them if they had been a little angry about what happened because the aed didn't work. but for them, there was never a question of placing blame. it was always about how can we turn this into something positive? that's exactly what they've done. >> by all accounts, jocelyn leonard and wes' legacy and the kind of kid he was, she's really holding the community together in a lot of ways. some days she's more worried about other people than herself. >> totally true. it's sort of a continuation of what a great kid wes was and fls a story they tell about him in fennville. one day they were running sprints in gym class and wes finished first. and there was a girl who couldn't run very fast and she was out there by herself and wes actually went out there and ran the sprints again so she wouldn't have to run alone. >> nice kid. he was a great kid. >> i think so.

8:33 am
yeah. every cliche you've heard about television, i just witnessed it. >> it's true, though. it's true, right? 25 years, gone. it's all about sopranos. i look pretty different in the show. >> you do. >> still, they recognize. >> can we talk about the ending. the ending of the sopranos. i was one of the people standing with my mouth like this saying what kind of ending is that. how would you like it to end? all i could do was -- what did you like? >> everybody had the same reaction. like, jeez, that's a little strange. >> here's what you say to vanity fair. i had to go into a -- i heard from the whole country how upset they were. started asking people, okay, what's your ending? that's what you did. >> nobody has it. you want your family wiped out in. >> no. >> you want to see tony? >> no. i said to people, what happens at the end?

8:35 am
we just take that stuff and use it. you got to use it to make it more intense. make it work harder. just pick up that flag and keep carrying it, you know. >> what's it like to have been and continue to be part one of the great rock'n'roll bands of all-time? >> well, it's a wonderful relationship we have with our audience which i think is the best in the world. it's an audience, we have -- we decided early on, it's not going to be an nostalgia act. we're going to go out there every time. what's inspiring is that bruce, as a writer continuing to write vital, important stuff. >> almost -- exactly. we wait for him to tell us where we are at this moment. >> as actors, he's writing the script. every single tour is inspired and has the energy coming from his work. i mean, he just continues like it's his first album, his first tour. we try and keep up. >> but he always seems, though, charlie, to hit the right note
8:36 am
at just the right time. to open the grammys with we take care of our own with all that was going on, really in the country and with whitney's death, you guys always seemed to figure out a way to knock it out o of the park. >> we're built for those moments, honestly. you know what i mean. he's a serious writer, we're a serious band and those serious moments, we do our thing. i think the whole show was elevated, though by that. instead of becoming somber, it became more intense. >> the thing that the band has always had for me beyond the brilliance of his lyrics, but also you and that coming together and clarence an everybody there, it was a sense that we are here for you. you the audience, what we care about. we'll stay here as long as you'll stay here. >> yeah. i think you hit it right there, charlie. honestly, it was the same feeling i had, you know, i remember the night that john lennon died and i was just -- i couldn't stop crying. it affected me much more than you would have expected. i said to bruce, are we going to
8:37 am
cancel? he says, no, no. this is what we need to do. this is our job. people need us tonight. >> at this time more than ever. >> yeah. >> here you are, your acting career is continuing. where does little stevie come from? >> my mother called me that. >> but now your acting career continues, little stevie. you're playing, guess what, another mobster, giovanni hendrick son. did you say i don't want to do that again but this guy is fun. >> i was not expecting to play another mobster. but once in a while, gayle, you have to take an adventure and get away from the daily grind of being a rock star, you know what i mean. go somewhere where you're really pampered. >> something else to do. >> isn't it funny. >> it's funny. speaking of pampering, norway does not pamper. they're real do it yourself people. very tough people. said we have an idea for a show. gangster, witness protection,
8:38 am
going for lilyhammer. i'm like, jeez, i wasn't planning on playing a gangster again unless marty scorsese calls. it was great. netflix picking it up for america. what a compliment that is. what an honor that is. these guys are terrific. really they're visionaries. >> this is not the kickoff of the of the tour but the tour really begins in part at the apollo theater next friday night. >> very, very -- >> money for a good cause. to do things that put you guys there at a legendary place. >> the legendary place. really all of our heroes, we're so into soul music growing up. really equal with rock'n'roll. soul music was there. all the old tv shows, you would see the beatles followed by margin gay and the rolling stones. >> influenced each other. >> yes, yes very much. >> charlie, gayle, erica, would you like to come next friday?

8:42 am
he's one of the only one to win the nobel prize. welcome. great to see you here. >> great pleasure. >> what do we mean by thinking fast and thinking slow? >> every one of us really recognizes that there are two different ways that thoughts come to mind. so if i say two plus two. >> four. >> if i say 17 times 24. >> 748. >> no. >> it's 408. charlie wait -- >> you rehearsed that. >> let me tell him. in the green room, charlie, i had the nerve to say 17 times 24 is 404. no. it's 408. i'm trying to tell you the right answer. >> the point is, some things we can go by instinct other things by -- >> we have to reason our way through and figure things out. we have to -- >> trust our gut? >> we have to trust our gut and act quickly. most of the time we cannot
8:43 am
reflect. we act on habit and impulse. it's all fine because most of the time we do very well. occasionally, we follow our gut. we follow our intuition and we follow our faith. >> how do we know when to trust our gut and when to be careful? >> in routine situations, when you're in an environment you're comfortable with, encountering decisions you've made before, you usually can trust your gut and you'll be fine. when you are -- when the stakes are high and the situation is normal, you're not all right. in many cases, people have intuitions that they're convinced of although they're wrong. >> give us other examples of thinking fast and thinking slow. >> and is one better than the other, thinking fast and thinking slow? >> you know, if i tell you, what are you more afraid of, to die in a terrorist incident or afraid to die? most people are more afraid of
8:44 am
