the vice president appeared on "60 minutes" sunday in his first interview since announcing he would not seek the democratic nomination. we have part of our interview that didn't air last night. biden revealed received from his son beau before he died of brain cancer and talked about whether he could have beaten hillary clinton. you think if you ran you would have won? >> i think if i had the time i would have been competitive. i can't believe won but i believe i would vf competitive and could have won the nomination. >> reporter: was it too late to raise the money? >> no. what was too late norah, i had pledges from serious, serious people and a lot of this has been reported in the press, but it takes time to do it. the one thing i did put pencil to paper on is to hire all of the people, and we had some of the best people in the country, the very people who put together our digital operation, a lot of very significant people prepared to help.
but it just takes time to raise the money and put it in place. >> reporter: you didn't look at the polls and say, wow, i'm still really far behind hillary clinton and bernie sanders? >> no. i looked at the polls and every poll, i beat every republican. the only one who ever beat every republican every time almost all of the time. i don'tthink they matter much now. i looked at the polls and all of the things that related to me were very positive in terms of my character, popularity to substance. again, they don't mean that much that early. there was nothing i looked at in the polls and said that is a problem. >> reporter: i know you talked to your son beau about running for president. what did he want you to do? >> first thing i'd like to do, and you're being very polite the way you're asking me the question, because some people ha his death bed said dad, you got to run and there was this sort of hollywood moment that you know? nothing like that ever, ever happened.
beau, all along, thought that i should run and i could win. but there was not what is sort of made out as this holdesque thing beau grabbed my hand and said win one for the gipper. it wasn't like that. >> reporter: he never said dad, i know i'm sick but i want you to do what has been your dream? >> there wasn't any point where we had a conversation where beau said, dad, i know i'm sick but i don't want you to put on hold. i tell you what may have confused people. it was in late october, the october before he passed away in may, and joe and and i always went home. we went to history house for dinner. ed dad, hallee and i are worried about you. i looked at him. he is the one who is sick.
he said, dad, no matter what happens, i am going to be okay. i know no one loves me more than you, dad, so you got to promise me. look at me. promise you'll be okay. what he was saying was i have a job to take care of the family. it wasn't dad, promise me you'll run. so when i told that story at a funeral and i told it to other friends, because it was always about somebody else with beau. what a beautiful son! and i think what people understandably thought was, dad, do not run because i'm ill and, dad, you got to go do it. as a matter of fact, it was almost the opposite at that point. it was almost, dad, you got to stay strong because the family is going to look to you, dad. >> so you see there is more context to this. and i think what happened was beau was sick for much longer than anybody knew and, quite frankly, the details are still
not public. it's a private family matter but the vice president said even in october, he was sick for a while so there had been a long running conversation about this. the vice president hady at a funeral what that was and that then got translated to a dying wish from beau and then a death bed wish from beau. i think the vice president wanted to say it was something different. >> and beau said, you have to take care about yourself. i'm worried about you. >> so candid too. >> yeah. we will hear more of that "60 minutes" you didn't see last night. biden tells the full story to raid osama bin laden hiding place. that is ahead right here on "cbs this morning." cbs news battleground tracker finds the republican race in iowa is a dead heat. donald trump and ben carson are tied with 27% in the state with the first in the nation caucuses, but trump holds a large lead in south carolina and new hampshire. nancy cordes is in washington tracking the fight for the gop nomination.
nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is the third poll to show carson tied or leading in iowa. and our battleground tracker also found that 56% of republican voters who don't back trump in iowa would be dissatisfied if he got the nomination. a sign of how polarizing his candidacy continues to be. we got another example this weekend when he questioned ben carson's religion. >> i'm presbyterian. can you believe it? nobody does. >> reporter: carson wasn't asked about carson's faith in jacksonville. he just brought it up. >> seventh day adventist, i don't know about. >> reporter: carson called on trump to apologize. on "face the nation," trump said there was nothing to apologize for. >> that wasn't meant to be an insult, obviously. it's just that i don't know about it. >> an expression of ignorance not raising questions about it? >> a harsh way of putting it but i guess i could say it that way, yes. >> reporter: it wasn't a new sign that the iowa front-runner
has gotten in trump's skin. >> i've had a great relationship with christianity and, frankly, i would say every bit as good as his. ben carson is super low energy right. >> reporter: dr. carson's response? >> i'm not sure there is anybody else who is running that spent 18 20 hours intently operating on somebody. >> reporter: the tenor of the gop primary left former florida governor jeb bush whose campaign was forced to make major cutbacks that he wants out. >> i have a lot of other cool things i can do other than sitting around being miserable and listening to people demonizing me and me feeling to demonize them. >> reporter: bush spent the weekend to strategize with his family and donors. but that didn't indicate that he would run home to mommy and daddy. millions in the south are bracing for more devastating weather this morning. what is left of hurricane
patricia dumped rain in texas and louisiana. david begnaud is in biloxi where it is pouring. >> reporter: we have been following this story since friday night. in louisiana a man died after he lost control of his sports car near new orleans. in biloxi this morning, the rain is picking up as this weather system heads east. overnight, powerful storms battered the gulf coast. in baton rouge, louisiana, 8.5 inches of rain lashed the capital city on sunday. more than a thousand people lost power in their homes as the remnants of hurricane patricia moved across the south. so far texas has seen the worst of the flooding. over the weekend record amounts of rainfall in several cities left cars submerged and their drivers stranded and prompted dozens of water rescues. in houston, we saw deducts
staring at this. >> he said there were no barricades to stop him and he couldn't see flood water. ed he was in the right-hand lane and he hit the water and the car stalled and he abandoned it at midnight the water was near the tire level and by 4:00 a.m. it was submerged. 18 rains fell in corsicana, texas. crews spotted this pickup truck nearly submerged and rescued a ma and his dog trapped by rising water. here is what today is shaping up to be. people living from biloxi east towards pensacola and beyond are under the threat of flooding and we are talking roughly 2 million people along the gulf coast. >> incredible reporting. thank you, dave. a woman accused of plowing into a crowd at the university
of home homecoming parade is expected to make first court appearance today. she faces second-degree murder and. last night, hundreds of people gathered at a campus vigil for the victims. adriana diaz is in stillwater, oklahoma that some may find difficult to crash. >> reporter: witnesses say chambers came from this direction and hit a barricade and this motorcycle before she reached this intersection fum of people and her car hit this pole that is eventually turned into a memorial. her attorney said last night he thinks mental illness, not intoxication, may have been the cause. graphic cell phone video shows adacia chambers silver sedan plowing into the crowd and hitting spectators in broad daylight. >> bam. they didn't know what hit them. just mowed them down like cattle. >> it was organized chaos.
>> reporter: von caster was on-site moments after saturday morning's crash. and you saw the scene and bodies on the ground? >> yeah. it was heart breaking. this was not a natural disaster. this was a man-made disaster. >> reporter: the collision killed four people.h lucas and 23-year-old nakita prabhaker and bonnie jean and marvin lyle stone who spent decades working at oklahoma state university. 40 others were injured. the driver chambers was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. >> she is sick. she is a sick individual. >> reporter: but her attorney tony coleman, said mental illness, not alcohol and drugs, may have been a fankt factor. has she been remorseful? >> that is one of the areas that causes concern. it seems there is an inability to be remorseful right now. when i spoke with her father and her grandmother, that is
absolutely not the person that they know. >> reporter: osu sophomore caly carter suffered an arm injury when chambers' car barreled into her. >> it's one of the biggest homecoming, so it's a really big deal. and just to have something like this happen is just very tragic. >> reporter: chambers blood is being tested for drugs and alcohol. she is expected to be charged late today with four counts of second-degree murder. charlie? >> adriana, thanks. dramatic new video takes us inside the deadly u.s. and kurdish raid on an isis prison in iraq. the helmet cam video shows the daring mission from a soldier's point of view. the commandos freed dozens of prison. >> >> reporter: good morning. it's very unusual to get a glimpse of a special forces operation as it unfolds.
but both the kurdish government and the pentagon have verified that these pictures are genuine. the video captured on a helmet camera starts midway through last thursday's predawn raid. prisoners emerged one-by-one from their cells to be patted down by kurdish special forces but you can clearly hear the american backup. there is a huge glimpse of an isis flag in what was the house of a local tribal leader but now converted into a jail. next, we see the prisoners bolting, barefoot and terrified from the building. the shooting never stopped. as both kurds and american special forces battle isis fighters whose fierce resistance to the initial attack killed master sergeant joshua wheeler. 69 prisoners were freed but they are not the ones the kurds expected to find. they hoped they were coming to the rescue of 20 of their own fighters who were captured in battle and displayed in cages by
isis in february. as soon as the special forces had left the compound a coalition air strike destroyed it. video posted by isis shows the wreckage and the casualties of a ferocious battle. in all say the kurd isis lost 20 men. on top of those 69 prisoners, the raid also netted six live isis fighters and, of course they are going to be a very good and important source of information to help the u.s. and the kurds understand better how the group operates. norah? >> elizabeth palmer in iraq thank you. a high school football player is in critical this morning, days after another player died from head injuries he suffered on the field. ahead, new recommendations to make the game safer

i want to set the record straight on something. >> yep. >> reporter: about the raid to get osama bin laden because there has been some recent confusion about that about whether you told the president to conduct the raid or not to conduct the raid. which is it? >> everything i said was completely accurate. i just never -- last tuesday night told the whole story. we got down to the final decision and the president asked everyone's opinion. and everyone in the room said, well, it's a close call, mr. president, probably, and it went back and forth. two people for certain said absolutely do something. one, the cia director said go. two, the secretary of defense said don't go. i was the last guy in the room. in order to give the president the leeway he needed i said mr. president, there is one more thing we can do what we had discussed about, another past to
see whether it was bin laden. i said you should do that and there would still be time to have the raid but that is what i would do. immediately, we got up as we always do and i walked out with the president. we walked up to the oval office. i said mr. president, follow your instincts. follow your instincts. >> reporter: so the reporting your were opposed to the raid is incorrect? >> what is the reporting accurately is i said go. and i didn't. i said, mr. president, try one more thing. the reason for that was imagine i if had said mr. president, go and he didn't go and osama bin laden did something else bad and everybody would say even the vice president said to go. and he said he said no. barack obama made that decision knowing if it was wrong, his career was over. i wanted the public to know this is a man with a backbone of steel. that's why i said it. and had i said but, by the way, when i went up privately i told
him to go it would look like i was self-graddising. it's the role the president had and that is exactly what happened. >> what is the one more thing? >> i wanted to do one more path over the bin laden compound with another drone and double-check that it was bin laden. >> the question is whether bin laden was there or not? >> yes. >> bob gates question they would be better bombing the place rather than go in. >> this adds to the historical record. >> so interesting to hear what exactly all of the things he was facting in like how history would reflect these moments. >> right. whether it was revealed whether his full story was about his role played in that. we will have more of that "60 minutes" in our next hour. the vice president's comments on donald trump that you didn't see last night. that is all ahead here on "cbs this morning." this morning, a major new report from the world health organization says eating processed meat poses the same cancer risk as smoking.
the report puts processed meat as bacon and hot dogs at the highest risk rating, the same as cigarettes and alcohol. red meat is called the next highest risk. the north american meat institute calls the report quote, dramatic and overreach. dr. david agus is joining us from los angeles. doctor, good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: tell me what you think about this report. >> the world health organization said not that it was the same risk as cigarettes and smoking, et cetera, but that it was definitive that there was an association with cancer. and i think that is real. processed foods can slightly increase your risk predominantly of colon cancer. the lifetime risk of colon cancer is 5%. if you have a hot dog every day, your risk goes to 6% and 18% increase. so it's very very small. >> go ahead. >> shall we stop eating these processed meats? >> i think we have always known that processed meats, too much
is bad. and what the data show is that 3 1/2 servings a week of regular meat has no health detriment at all. processed meats aren't good for blood pressure have a slight increase in colon cane and prosthetic risk. they are very small but what grandma used to say moderation. >> let's not go there. >> i say that to charlie too. >> help us understand what red meat and processed meat is. that is a critical distinction. >> right. red meat you put a steak on the grill. processed meats they put in whether it be lots of salt and preservatives and nitrates and things to make it stay longer or taste differently. baloney isn't a natural meat. hot dogs aren't regular red meat, they are processed. we need to stay away from the process. the key is moderation. you know nobody is going to eat
a hot dog every day that which will raise the risk. once in a while is fine. >> i remember a period we had a study saying women are not eating enough red meats. >> there are benefits to meat. everything has a risk and a benefit. when i drove to the studio this morning, there was a risk something bad could happen. i could get in an accident. but, obviously the benefit was greater. red meat has significant benefits. nutrients for much of the world. obviously, with the currently environmental issues it's unsustainable the rate we are eating red meat but that is a separate issue. we need to keep what we are doing which is moderation. the mediterranean diet is the best we can use. it's a lot of hype but not a major change in what we are doing. >> norah can talk about
moderation in this break. >> or we can what? >> doctor, thank you very much. seven high school players have died this year many from head injuries suffered on the field. coming up a recommendation for health experts to make the game safer. set your drvervr so you can watch "cbs this morning" any time. we have ohio state head football coach urban myeyer coming up later in the show and also "supergirl."

follows all of the rules governing high school football. andre smith is the first high schooler to die in illinois playing the game since 2012. >> dean thank you. what a terrible tragedy. interesting that the academy of pediatrics is putting out new recommendations on this. everybody needs to take a closer look at it. >> the family members saying it's just a game it really puts it into prospective. it shouldn't be happening. the amazing play on a soccer game when a deer charges through

the cause is still under investigation. the boat sent out a mayday call and the coast guard responded within minutes sending two rescue boats. they picked up the survivors who were taken to a dock and received treatment. biden opened up about his decision to say out of the presidential rate. we asked about his reportedly icy relationship with hillary clinton and what he really thinks about republican front-runner donald trump. here are more moments that you didn't see last night. >> reporter: you wouldn't have considered running for president unless you thought or had some doubts about hillary clinton? >> not at all. that has nothing to do with it. i've said from the beginning! look. i like hillary. hillary and i get along together. the only reason to run is because i still think i could do a better job than anybody else could do. whether i run or not has nothing to do with whether hillary is going to run. for example, when hillary decided to run, she called me and said can i come have
breakfast? we had breakfast in that room once a week for four years when she was secretary of state. she would come down and say, joe, have you decided what you're going to do? i said hillary, i'm not in a position to make that decision. she said, i've decided to run, joe. we shook hands. hillary, if i run, it will be a great race between us. if i don't run, i wish you the best of luck. that is the nature of our relationship. >> reporter: so can you say right now you will give hillary clinton 100% of your support? >> if she is the nominee i will give her 120% of my support. look. she and i have been friends for years. we served together in the senate. we served together when she was the secretary of state. we disagreed with the president on some things. go back and find anybody who says for the four years we worked together hillary and i weren't friends. >> joo what do youreporter: what do you think of donald trump? >> i've been in this business a long time, norah. there is nobody that i have
personal to. i'm disappointed in donald trump. i know the showman and all that he is. but i really -- i really don't think it's healthy and i hope he reconsiders this sort of attack on all immigrants. i think that is -- i think that is beneath the country. i don't think it's really where the american people are and i hope he really doesn't believe it. >> reporter: following this announcement, trump tweeted i think joe biden made the correct decision for him and his family. personally i would rather reason against hillary because her record is so bad. trump thinks you would be the tougher opponent. >> look. i don't believe -- look. donald trump is -- knows how to -- how to appeal to the base of his party very well. and i'm not going to -- i -- ilieves in that. >> that was it. that it. that was all he wanted to say about that. >> was that joe biden speaks for the first time in a long time? >> well said. well said.

issues. >> has the game changed? we are talking about the different way the players are hitting each other. is there more attention focused on this? what is it? what is happening? >> well, the positive part we have taken the head completely out of the game of football. if you watch it closely, the penalties, the way we teach tackling at ohio state really much is permeating throughout the whole country and as safe as it's ever been and there will be accidents and i wasn't aware of what happened recently but this hit home when my son made the decision to play high school football. we had a sit-down like this and said what do we think? and my daughters played volleyball. my one daughter experienced a concussion playable volleyball at florida gulf coast against penn state and she had a concussion. and i think the game will continue to change in a positive way. >> coach urban meyer, thank you so much.
