before entering kong, he was an orthopedic surgeon. tennessee senator bob corker and 2012 gop presidential nominee mitt romney will also meet with trump today. mr. trump talked yesterday with retire foure four-star general petraeus. john heilman is managing editor at bloomberg politics. first, secretary of state. the president-elect's choice for who he wants is one thing. getting them confirmed by the united states senate is another. choice? >> it seems harder for me to imagine that any of the current people being considered are going to have a real problem getting through a republican senator. >> even petraeus? >> petraeus has some vetting issues. clearly there are many people who will point out that for a republican president-elect who spent a lot of his campaign attacking hillary clinton over her e-mail use and over the questions of how she handled classified material, david
trouble with the law for. there will be a fight over that. but again, hard for me to believe that any of these candidates would have a problem getting through. >> do you see a front runner here? kellyanne conway maybe very vocal in her disapproval of mitt romney. there are reports kellyanne has gone rogue. she made it clear that's not the case. she has the support of donald trump. is there a leading contender in your mind? >> the only mind that matters on this is the mind of donald trump. this whole kellyanne conway thing seems overblown. donald trump likes chaos. it's pretty clear to me kellyanne conway may be a lot of things, she's not dumb. i don't think she came forward and said anything she did not feel comfortable saying in the context of maintaining her close relationship to mr. trump. so i think everyone i talk to about this is -- says the same thing, which is man, we just don't know what donald trump is thinking. there's things like what he thinks the cut of the jib, the notion that mitt romney looks like a secretary of state.
that matters to donald trump. i wouldn't be surprised if any of the following people, rudy giuliani, mitt romney, and david petraeus, end up being secretary of state. would not surprise me pchbl. >> tom price now nominated to be the head of health and human services. he's called obamacare crazy. what does this tell you about where the president-elect is going on the affordable care act? >> he spent a large portion of the campaign s to repeal and replace obamacare on day one, which was a little overdramatic. can't really do that in one day. this pick is really consistent with what president-elect trump campaigned on. whether -- doing the replacement of obamacare has been a complicated thing. but it's true congressman price, unlike many republicans who criticized the law, congressman price has a replacement. the more interesting quirks or at least an interesting question, is the fact that
overhaul medicare in a pretty dramatic way, along the lines of the way paul ryan has said. that's something that president-elect trump said he was adamantly against throughout the campaign. so there's some on the question of repealing or replacing obamacare, there's alignment between the new proposed hhs chairman and the president-elect on the question of what to do about medicare, which is obviously the biggest, most important federal entitlement. there's some disagreement at least right now. >> and mitt romney and donald trump having dinner tonight at a french restaurant. >> it's true. you guys have not been on donald trump's twitter feed this morning yet. >> no. >> the news of this morning is that out of nowhere apparently, the president-elect has said -- has come out with a tweet this morning about flag burning. not sure what provoked this tweet. he's suggesting now that if someone burns the american flag, they should be thrown in jail or perhaps lose their citizenship. not clear whether mr. trump is
flag burning is, at this moment at least, protected speech under the first amendment. i don't think even if you were to amend the constitution you would be able to strip someone's sltsship from them for pretty much any reason. >> there hasn't been a campaign like it. that still continues. >> we're talking about it now. john heilman, thank you. world leaders are arriving in havana ahead of tonight's rally to honor fidel notably absent, russian president vladimir putin, canadian prime minister justin trudeau, as well as president obama obama. charlie rose is in havana, where cubans are lining up to pay their respectings. charlie, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning from havana. during the nearly 50-year reign
came to this plaza to hear his thunderous speeches. yesterday hundreds of thousands came to bid farewell. today even bigger crowds are expected. in fact, behind me they're already beginning to line up. hundreds of mourners remain well after the sun set on revolution square. fidel's brother and cuban president raul castro placed a flower by his picture. several other led the country for nearly 50 years. the lines of mourners monday grew longer as the day wore on. many were overcome, either by the heat or by grief. he is livieieing e personally n this man said. many stood in line for a chns to file past the photo and view his
evident. i tell you this from my heart, this farmer said. i'd like it to have been me instead of him. castro's ashes were kept out of public view, even in death he is surrounded by secrecy. alcohol sales and celebratory music are banned during this period of mourning. schools and government offices have been shuttered. many mourners who also signedn revolution, are state employees or students. around the world, castro is seen by some as a murderous and repressive dictator. but to these cubans, he is a father figure and a national hero. tonight's rally will be a kind of sendoff of fidel castro. tomorrow his remains will leave
time. it will then embark on a cross country tour, stopping along the way before arriving at santiago de cuba, the birthplace of the revolution. gayle? >> charlie rose in havana. thank you very much. safe travels as you head back to us here in new york. first time home buyers are expected to dominate the housing market. jill is in our toyota green room to explain why it makes more financial sense to rent or buy t

[heartbeat] for millions of baby boomers there's a serious virus out there that's been almost forgotten. it's hepatitis c. one in 30 boomers has hep c, yet most don't even know it. because it can hide in your body for years without symptoms,
>> ten-year. >> well, ten over 30. so 30 in total. >> what? you said ten. >> ten-year fixed. over 30. 30-year total. >> 30 years. >> wow. >> okay. >> wow, you'll be paying this off in your mid-70s. forget about retiring when you're 65. i've got an idea, you know the never happens, that's where the nurse can live. >> really good. that's michael scott from "the office" he learned that becoming a new homeowner can become a little overwhelming. the process is about to get even more competitive. first-time home buyers made up to 35% of home sales in 2016. that's expected to jump to 52% next year.
good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with mortgage rates. it was owe traumatic, it was double digits back then. now you said it's raised to 4%. >> it's weird, before the election if you were going to get a 30-year fixed rate mortgage you were paying 3.34%. now up over 4%. >> that's still good. >> 4% is amazing. it really is. but that jump is pretty dramatic. and the reason the jumped is that the market believes that president-elect trump's policies where you get more spending, more tax cuts, we'll see more growth. so the federal reserve will have to raise rates faster. all interest rates will likely rise as a result. that's why mortgage rates are up. again, it's very low historically, honestly, if you're shopping for a mortgage, it can be hundreds of dollars more a month than a year ago.
ticking up which they will presumably for a couple years now. >> and people are thinking, wait a minute, should i buy my house right now? wait a second, we're still looking at low mortgage rates and you've got to look at your financial situation. we talk financial planners all the time, what do they say, they say you should be spending up to 30% of your income on housing. housing can be your house or it can mean renting. it's tough in a mortgage to keep that housing cost at 30%. but what's really important is, if you are about to buy a house, you got to factor that in. you also have to come up with a down payment. 20%. you can do less but it's safer to do 20%. then you deputy factor in maintenance costs. the boiler can break. >> what's the average for a first-time home buyer age? i just heard more millennials
>> more millennials are living at home. the average age is still in the low 30s. about 33. if you want to buy a house, be clear. run your numbers. rent first and then buy. if you can stay with your parents, rock on. keep saving. >> but you don't want to date a guy who's still living at home. that's a real issue. the world chess championship in new york has reached a stal stalema stalemate, ahead see who is ahead after a series of ties. you're watching "cbs this morning." >> announcer: this morning's money is sponsored by rocket mortgage by quicken loans. with the garden patio will be gone. or you could push that button. sfx: rocket launching. cockpit sounds and music crescendo. skip the bank, skip the waiting, and go completely online. get the confidence that comes from a secure, qualified mortgage approval in minutes.

concerning privacy and supports the need for prince harry to support those closest to him. it goes back to a strongly worded statement prince harry made regarding the media's treatment of his new girlfriend which he described as a wave of abuse and harassment. some of this has been very public, this statement reads. the smear on a front page of a national newspaper, racial undertones, outright sexism and and web articles. that soon gave way to stories that william was deeply unhappy at his brother's hot-headed plea. after that, it looks like william just wanted to set the record straight and give something of a royal seal of approval for harry's girlfriend. >> charlie, thank you very much. next week, marks 75 years since the japanese attack on pearl harbor. now comes the first memoir of that day from the perspective of
