cnn talks to one who escaped. meet the youngest golfer to win the masters since tiger woods. and this beach scene, yes, that's a bobcat. yes, that's a shark. we will explain. welcome to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> i'm errol barnett. your second hour of the day with us, there is "cnn newsroom." hillary clinton is taking her brand-new presidential campaign on the road. she is in the middle of a drive from new york to iowa to kick off her second bid for the white house. >> after months, you could say years of speculation, clinton made it official sunday. she is now the first democrat to declare her candidacy. >> a major part of her strategy is to reintroduce herself to voters like she did at a pennsylvania gas station just hours after her announcement. senior washington correspondent joe johns has more.
>> reporter: we expect hillary clinton to come here to iowa early in the week. we expect small meetings not unlike her new york listening tour in the year 2000 when she was running for the senate. we don't expect large events here in iowa, at least at first. she's also expected to go to new hampshire, another early voting sta state. it's clear that aides for mrs. clinton have been in both states. they will be attempting to highlight what they see as her strengths including her humor, wit, and most importantly staying away from the notion that this campaign is all about her. her video campaign announcement focuses on the people and their needs aligning herself with voters. what does she need to do to win in iowa? talking to voters last night in iowa, they say it's a time for her to connect with them, to meet face to face with them because as everyone knows, she's considered by many to be an international celebrity, she
comes with an entourage. the secret service follows her wherever she goes. the challenge for mrs. clinton will be to go small even each if that is possible. what are people saying? the first democratic voter i spoke to on the ground said she was inclined to vote for hillary clinton but was troubled by the former secretary of state's private e-mail server issues in that public job. it looks like a lack of transparency and owns. some polls suggesting this may have hurt mrs. clinton, though its too early to say because polls aren't necessarily relevant this far out from a primary or caucus. talking to democratic strategists, they say she needs to show she can take punches in the political arena and come out swinging effectively. supporters over the last several month have said that one of the big things we have to do in politics is learn from your mistake. hillary clinton, though no one
is talking about it, had mistakes in 2008. she did be get off to a good start. she was out-organized by barack obama. the question, can she aline with voters this time around. >> as he pointed out, hillary clinton's campaign is already different from her failed run in 2008. though it is too early to tell if it will resonate with voters. >> cnn's contributing editor peter binehartexplains what could work in her favor. >> reporter: in 2008, the iraq war was catastrophic for her campaign. she it taken a position at odds with the democratic base that she felt she could not disavow without looking like a flip-flopper and yet sucked a lot of the emotional energy out of her campaign even for her base. that issue is now in the rearview mirror. i think she's also -- will be more comfortable running as a
candidate of experience and continuity. she can do it more successfully now because the american economy is starting to improve. i think than in some ways she has an easier path this time. >> he says it doesn't appear there are any viable candidates to challenge clinton for the party nomination. a cnn/orc poll puts clinton ahead of contenders. she has some of the strongest support of any non-incumbent presidential candidate in recent memory. >> the poll done last month put clinton on top at 62%. u.s. vice president joe biden is a distant second. 15%. senator elizabeth warren of massachusetts is in third place with 10% even though she insists she's not running. the list of republican presidential candidates will likely get bigger later today. florida senator marco rubio is set to speak in miami in the coming hours, and he's expected to announce his candidacy for
president. but it will be an uphill battle for senator rubio to secure the republican nomination. his polling at 7% in the latest cnn/orc survey. now to the first golf major of the year. the masters. its new champion, jordan spieth, is etching his name in the history books at a augusta national after a heartbreaking second-place finish last year. spieth never let go of the lead during this year's tourism. >> last year's loss his motivation. the 21-year-old the first winner since 1976. he set several records along the way. the final score ties the course record set by tiger woods back in 1997. earlier spieth spoke to cnn and says the performance was fueled by what happened last year. >> to sit with the jacket on and to be part of the history of augusta and the masters was
something i watched slip away last year. had a chip on my shoulder. carried some momentum into this week. all came together at the right time. >> i know that your family and upbringing is important to you. that's played a huge role in getting you here today. i wonder if i can just pass you three photographs. what emotions do you experience when you see these accounts? >> how about the focus on that swing that's a little john daly-like, isn't it? and this is really cool for my sister. that's her smile. miss her a lot. wish that she could have been here. i can't wait to get back to her and let her maybe try on the jacket or something. this is cool. haven't seen photos from today yet. >> that's what you look like. >> it look good. looks good. i'm okay wearing green. >> very happy man. there later this hour, more from our interview with the new masters champion. we'll get you the latest information out of yemen now.

voting states in the nominating process. to some other stories we're watching for you. turkey has blasted pope francis for referring to the mass killings of armenians by ottoman turks as a genocide. the term has always been a point of contention when talking about the killings that happened 100 years ago. >> in response to the pope's comments, turkey summoned the ambassador to the vatican for consultation. he called the remarks "unacceptable," and here are the pope's exact words. >> translator: in the past century, our human family has lived through three massive and unprecedented tragedies. the first which is widely considered the first genocide of the 20th century struck your own maerc armenian people. >> for more ben wedeman is standing by in rome. there is a bit of a precedent for this. pope john paul ii cited it in
2001. pope francis has made similar comment before. for turks, these comments come with a sting. >> reporter: yes, indeed. this is a very sensitive subject for the turks who not only recalled their ambassador to the vatican and summoned the vatican ambassador in ankara to emperess unhappy not. we heard from the turkish foreign minister who tweeted that the statements are unacceptable, those statements by pope francis, and are out of touch with both historical facts and legal basis. the turk have always contended that the massacre of armenians which left 1.5 million dead were simply the result of intercommunal violence during world war i. of course, if you look back at the historical record, diplomatic correspondents, press reports at the time, it does appear that it was indeed a
systemic genocide of the armenians during the first world war. but as i said, the turks have always denied it. it's important to note that in fact pope francis was, as you mentioned, merely referring to a statement made by pope john paul pope ii in december, 2001. it certainly is not a statement without precedent. it is one that clearly has riled turkish sentiment. errol? >> ben, rosemary here. what's the pope hoping to achieve by raising this sensitivity issue that dates back a century? what's the likely next move from turkey on this? >> reporter: this really, rosemary, is in line with the approach taken by pope francis wh who has never shied away from controversy. yesterday there was a special mass to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the beginning of the apartment massacres in what
was the ottoman empire. as far as the next steps go, it's hard to say. certainly the turks have take then opportunity to express their unhappiness. at the end of the day, they cannot afford to cut ties with the vatican which, of course, in the sense is the spiritual leader for more than a billion catholics around the world. this may simply be a passing cloud in diplomatic relations between turkey and the vatican. >> ben wedeman reporting live from rome. many thank. >> thanks. a year ago another extremist group launched an attack so frightening it sparked international outrage. >> boko haram abducted almost 300 girl from their school in northeastern nigeria. the fate of most of the girls is still unknown. some escaped, and as we report, they are defying the risks to return to school.

welcome back. actress gwyneth paltrow is dramatically cutting her food budget. cher leases theron is -- and cher here theron is opening up about a past experience. >> and bobby brown pitches barbecue sauce? those are some of the trending headline in entertainment news. kim serafin joins me. thank you very much for being with us. let's start with gwyneth paltrow. apparently poised and ready to live on food stamps for a week. why is she doing this? >> yeah, she's taking this new
york city food stamp challenge. she accepted this challenge offer. she'll live on $29 a week for the week of food stamps. about $1.38 per meal. it's great when celebrities do this. they want to draw attention to issues. she took a picture, said here's what $29 gets you. of course if you're a celebrity, you have to expect people will criticize you. people criticized her choices. she chose brown rice and tortillas and black beans but had leafy green vegetables. look, she's trying to be healthy, people are saying this is not realistic. not what people would buy with food stamps. this is what you're supposed to, too get people talking it it. that's why celebrities put their names on challenges like this. she had to know she would get criticized. >> exactly right. here we are talking about it. want to move to charlize theron. she's had traumatic things happen in her life. she's saying that helped and shaped her and is being useful
for her next role. >> yeah. charlize theron, i think people know the story. she witnessed her mother shoot her father when she was about 15 years old. she went through this traumatic experience when she was young. she's playing a character in a movie called "dark places," where she plays a characfor who was 8 when she saw her family get murdered. she's saying her own traumatic experience helped with the role. but also helped her in life and just -- it shaped her life obviously. interesting that she's speaking out about it. she has talked about it a little in the past. but she is relating it to the new project she's working on. she's been pretty open about this parliament of her life. she's -- this part of her life. she's very, very tight with her mom. >> yeah. very. and finally to bobby brown. interesting and quite weird behavior. he has spoken out for the first time about his daughter, bobbi kristina. then he made a pitch that was
weird and awkward and uncomfortable. >> yeah. bobby brown, of course he has been at bobbi kristina's side since everything happened on january 31st. he did have a contractural appearance. he had to perform at a soul food festival. he thanked fans for support and had to perform. he also had to pitch barbecue sauces. again, this was a contractural thing. it's strange because this is the first time we've seen him speaking and publerforming publicly. he thanked everyone for support. it was a weird position to be in to pitch barbecue saws, as well. he flew back to say bobby christine amp he's been at her side. must be -- bobbi kristina. he's been at her side. markup very difficult. he was very emotional at the performance. >> how much do we know about the condition? >> it seems to be unchanged. we know she was moved to a different facility.
obviously family has been there. she's been unchanged since january 31st. it must be rough dealing with this. it's tragic. >> it is so sad. kim serafin, unimportant to end on a sad note. there many thanks for joining us. >> thank you. we wish the brown family well as they go through all of this. we want to leave with something a bit random, though. cats are wildly known for their fondness of fish. what if you spotted this -- a wild one snagging a small shark at the beach. a man in o vacation in florida was walking along when he spotted the bobcat with the shark. >> alarming. when he saw the photographer, he dropped the fish and ran off. the photographer said he was a safe distance from that surprising scene. >> must have miles away. the only safe distance. >> exactly. thanks for watching. i'm rosemary church. >> i'm errol barnett.
