the month of october. >> what was the heart of joe biden's decision not to run? >> i think somebody in june said this is going to the bitter end and the way he makes the decisions. the heart of it was the emotional reaction to his son's dead and i think the very heart he couldn't pull it off. hillary clinton is a formidable candidate and to raise the money in the thick of a campaign is too difficult for him to do. >> on tuesday he met are his political advisers and said can we raise the money in time? my understanding there was a question about whether they could put the fundamentals in place. >> they could actually do it, right. whether you could do the nuts and bolts of running. even if they could do it, they knew it was going to be really hard. it's very hard to build a campaign while you're running a campaign. campaigns that have tried to do have mostly failed in the past. >> he said yesterday he simply ran out of time but a lot of people wondering is that the real story? does his decision to drop out give hillary clinton a clear path to the nomination, you think? >> it would look like it.

8:04 am
presidency. i will tell you, there was growing restlessness here within the west wing about the prolonged nature of joe biden's deliberations and that sort of came to a head earlier this week when the white house was forced to deal with questions about what did the vice president tell president obama right before the osama bin laden raid and how much power definite in the white house and did he have veto power over cabinet picks and all of those sorts of things put the white house in an awkward position and now it's relieved to be out of that. >> i was curious to see what the inner circle how they felt about the process and you touched on that. we just saw a picture that was just released showing president obama and joe biden working on the speech. were you surprised to see president obama at his side when he came out yesterday? >> not at all. these two have been a tandem from the very beginning. one of the reasons president obama picked joe biden as his running mate he believed he had great political instincts and didn't believe he was that hyperambitious about seeking the presidency and one of the reasons joe biden is vice

8:33 am
and so we see that because people are sitting more in cash than ever before. and cash is not going to get you where you need to get to in retirement. >> so they are being conservative even thorough optimistic about the future. why? >> well, for different groups. some have gone through the financial crisis and they saw what can happen and some of them saw their homes decline 50%, some saw their assets decline 50%. they remember every single time they lost money. the millennials didn't have a lot of assets and are investing and they are spending most of the time on their computer is about financial advice and financial information. they are actually investing in the future. and a lot of people are also nervous and staying in cash because it's a security blanket. and they are very nervous about a lot of the headlines and they just don't want to be in that position again.

8:35 am
i'm going to buy my kid the money because they knee shoes for school. >> but you need to save for retirement because you're living much longer. maybe if you take care of your kids as well they will allow you to move back in with them because you're going to need to move back in with them. >> you sound like my mother. she used to say that all the time! >> the average person claims that they need 45,000 dollars of income for retirement. and if you take their assets today and what it's generating because they have so much in cash, they are only generating 9,000. there is a 36,000 dollar gap and you cannot make up that gap by staying in cash. >> where should we invest? >> without respect to stocks or particular things, give us the rules that you think work in terms of what you do. >> so everyone's risk profile is different. your age is different. but, in general, most people in the early stages of their life should be 65% in equities and
8:36 am
35% in bonds and very little in cash. over your lifetime, that equity percentage declines and the bond percentage increases. today, the average household has 65% to 70% cash. you can't invest for the future in the future and what we are trying to create awareness about, it's not timing the market. it's time in the market. so people need to get invested today, especially the millennials. the millennials are actually doing this. they are spending time. they realize they need to use technology, but they also realize they need advice and they are actually going and getting advice and they are teaching the next generations how to do this. >> rob kapito, always good advice from you. thank you for joining us in the studio. this morning we continue our high school honor roll series celebrating super bowl number 50. retired running back and recent

bryant gumbel on his last day of cbs' "the early show." this morning he is getting ready to host a different kind of live event for the first time on american television. doctors will perform live brain surgery. the patient volunteered after suffering years of tremors. they are related to early onset parkinson's disease. >> putting transit in the brain. pretty scary stuff. walk with a cane. >> bryant will guide viewers through the two-hour surgery on sunday. pleased to have you here. >> nice to see that old video? >> yeah. it looked like i was smuggling nuts in my cheeks! >> a mutual friends of ours who represents him said to me, i'm constantly trying to get bryant to come back to television because everybody wants him to
8:45 am
do one thing or another but this is what he said is he doing. >> charlie scolded me the last time i was on saying you have to do more stuff. this is a live project and live television which i enjoy and gives me and viewers an opportunity to learn. we touting this as not just live brain surgery but also celebration of the brain which remains one of the great mysteries of the universe. >> live surgery brain, is that a good idea? live cameras? i'm a little worried about this. bryant, everybody knows they are on camera. >> right. let me dismiss some of your fears. the surgery has been done on 80,000 people and it's elective surgery. yes, every surgery has if you're thinking we are doing this live because the hook is will the patient live or die, you're going to be sadly disappoint. >> the doctor is not playing one. >> right. we are talking about a surgical team of eight people. two neurosurgeons and another guy who is going to do the mapping. another neurosurgeon will dot mapping so they will be taking

turns. we won't necessarily be speaking with the surgeon who is doing something delicate. we are respecting their views. every time they want us out of the way, we are out of the way. >> the patient will be awake? >> the patient has to be awake. >> to judge whether it's working or not. >> right. they are sinking these elerod e electrodes in. >> deep brain simulation is what we try to do every morning on the show. >> i watch. >> you watch our show? >> i watch your show. >> oh. >> by the way, i had a conversation with matt. >> matt who? >> matt lauer. >> i told matt i would be here this morning. he said, why? i explained. he said, oh, cool. >> did you tell him you're watching our show this morning? >> he knows that. he knows that. >> matt is a very smart guy. >> he is, indeed. >> let me just go back to this estimation too. surgery will last for two hours.
8:47 am
>> the surgery will actually last about six hours. we will have the two hours that we think the viewers will most learn from. >> is this a one. time only event? >> this is a onetime only event. it's going to be broadcast live in the united states. it's going to 117 countries and 45 different languages. so what i think in addition to celebration of the brain we are hoping to demystify the surgery because the surgery has great potential for people who not only sump from parkin son's. if they can figure out which is faulty they have the opportunity to address a lot of problems. >> it's fating. will it be graphic? >> no. >> we won't see blood? >> is there no blood involved. another thing. if you're tuning in for a gore fest, this is not the place for you. >> i want the patient to live. i'm fascinated by this but this is scary.
8:48 am
>> several incisions about the size of a nickel so not talking blood here. the mystery in this is will it work? will we see the tremors disappear? >> what you hope is people understand the possibilities so that there will be much more funding for research and everything else. >> exactly right. in greg grindley's case he was afraid of this surgery. when you think they are fooling with your brain you figure other things i'd rather do but it has the great potential for other people. >> for patients like greg grindley what has been the results? >> hard to tell because the range of people suffer and the extent to which they suffer you can judge it subjectively. it has great success and only government-approved i think since 2002 but it's had great success. >> a what is the most dramatic change you've seen in morning television? i know you have experienced it and watched it. >> charlie, i've told you this. i think every generation that

does morning television thinks theirs is better than the wone that followed an there is truth so that and i take exception of that. i like your slogan. >> do you miss morning tv? >> i'm sorry. what? >> do you miss morning tv for yourself? >> i think rather be like tracey and have fecal matter flowing than do that. >> we are tight on bryant. we have to go. would you like to say happy birthday to chris lake? it's his birthday. i bet he gives us extra time for that! >> here is one for you. i would like to say happy birthday to my ex-intern chris lake. how about that? >> now we know where he learns everything. >> brain surgery live airs sunday on the national geographic channel. you're watching "cbs this morning."
