7:00 am
beautiful sunshine... and good morning. it is wednesday, november 9th. 2016. welcome to "cbs this morning." donald trump wins the presidency in one of the greatest upsets in election history. a political earthquake. trump campaign manager kellyanne conway will join us with how they pulled it off. hillary clinton concedes in private but says nothing to her devastated supporters. she's expected to speak this morning. we look at where she lost the race. >> the world's reaction to the stunning result. we're in moscow where vladimir putin and the russian parliament are applauding donald trump's victory. >> we begin this morning with a look at today's eye opener.
7:01 am
>> i say it is time for us to come together as one you nighted people. >> a historic night, as donald trump is elected president of the united states. >> for all of the talk about donald trump not accepting the outcome of this election, hillary clinton has not delivered a concession speech. >> we've done an amazing job, and she is not done yet. their predictions weren't worth the paper that they were printed on. >> this was a white lash against a changing country. it was a white lash against a black president. >> the civil war, world war ii and including 9/11 this may be the most cataclysmic event the country has ever seen. >> he said in the speech he wants to build bridges and wants us all to come together. i think that's a really good way to start in this country.
7:02 am
but i don't think we can say right now where this goes from here. >> it could be a wild ride on wall street. >> uncertainty surrounding a trump presidency is shocking markets. >> thousands of hillary clinton supporters left with tears in their eyes. they are shocked beyond measure these folks. >> all that. >> look on the bright side. you know that lie we tell kids, you can be president? it's true now. literally anyone can be president. >> sorry to keep you waiting. complicated business. >> i think the american people made a choice that they believe will help their lives and everybody is entitled to make that decision. whether or not you agree with them. le. > on "cbs this morning." >> let's face it, this has been an exhausting, stressful, sometimes downright weird election for all of us. but here's what i want everybody to know. no matter what happens. the sun will rise in the morning, and america will still
7:03 am
>> this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota. let's go places. >> welcome to the "cbs this morning" as you wake up in the west a political thunder clap is echoing around the world. donald trump will be the next president of the united states. >> we estimate the president-elect will get at least 289 electoral votes. hillary clinton, the favorite before yesterday's just 218. we're still unable to call a winner in three states, minnesota, michigan, and new hampshire. >> but right now we can tell you that hillary clinton is actually leading in the popular vote by a slim margin. clinton plans to speak to her supporters in just a few minutes for the first time since the vote. we'll bring that to you as soon as it happens. trump gave his victory speech at around midnight specific time. major garrett was there to cover it as he did from the very
7:04 am
manhattan, good morning. >> good morning. the night began gloomly for donald trump at his campaign headquarters. early returns and exit polls were discouraging. but despair soon gave way to joy as trump's unshakable belief in voter turnout that would defy expectations and shatter all predictions materialized. and no matter how improbably the presidency was trump's. >> the president-elect of the united states of america, donald trump. >> his characteristic flair and his family and campaign advisers in tow, donald trump began the transition from political phenomenon to commander in chief. >> i've just received a call from secretary clinton. >> reporter: saluting the vanquished democratic nominee he once threatened to jail during an historically bitter campaign. >> hillary has worked very long
7:05 am
and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country. i mean that very sincerely. >> reporter: with votes still being counted, trump offered soothing words to the more than 58 million americans who voted against him, vowing to pursue reconciliation. >> for those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, i'm reaching out t guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country. >> reporter: there was time for the country to dream big and he promised massive investments in new infrastructure and a push to clean up america's inner cities. >> america will no longer settle for anything less than the best. >> reporter: as he has throughout the campaign trump said his administration would soften the blows of
7:06 am
immigration. >> the forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. >> reporter: history he uniquely saw as his political destiny trump said he would now focus on the fight ahead. >> while the campaign is over. our work on this movement is now really just beginning. >> reporter: twitter, of course, played a prominent role i donald trump's pursuit of the american presidency. and we have this morning the first tweet from president-elect trump. it reads as follows. such a beautiful and important evening. the forgotten man and woman will never be forgotten again. we will all come together as never before. norah? >> all right, major, thank you so much. hillary clinton's campaign chairman john podesta addressed a stunned crowd of supporters last night as her victory party turned into a vigil.
7:07 am
and every vote should count. several states are too close to call, so we're not going to have anything more to say tonight. we are so proud of her! she's done an amazing job and she is not done yet. so thank you for being with her. >> but just a short time later, hillary clinton called donald trump to concede. nancy cordes is ae manhattan where clinton will speak shortly. nancy, good morning. >> good morning, norah. we are standing in a line of reporters who have been waiting to get in to this hotel, the new yorker hotel, for about an hour and a half now. this event is kind of being arranged on the fly. the secret service just showed up a short time ago. we're told it's still being constructed. this is not an event actuality that the clinton campaign was prepared for about 24 hours ago.
7:08 am
where we are, we're across the street from penn station, the train station here in midtown manhattan, about two miles away from the hotel where hillary clinton spent the night, which itself is only a block away from trump tower where donald trump, the president-elect, spent the night. we have not been given any indication of what hillary clinton is going to say this morning, though you pointed out that she did call donald trump to concede in the wee hours of the morning. so, it's expected publicly concede in your speech today. there was some question overnight about why she didn't come out and say anything to her supporters who have been gathered there for many hours at the javits convention center. there were some democrats who felt that she owed it to them and to the nation to say something about the results. perhaps to wait until the results were definitive enough that she could concede. but from my conversation with clinton aides, two things were going on.
7:09 am
out a victory in some of these very slow states. and also, hillary clinton herself was not mentally or emotionally prepared to deliver a second concession speech in her second bid for the white house. >> thanks, nancy. joining us now from trump tower is donald trump's campaign manager kellyanne conway. good morning, and congratulations. >> oh, good morning, charlie. and thank you for that. we're really excited here. >> so tell us about the clinton and donald trump. >> it was a very gracious conversation about 2:30 a.m. or so. and we had already gone over to the hilton to meet our supporters. we had been watching the returns throughout the night here at trump tower. and as we made our way there our plan was really just to wait and see if the rest of the states and the presidency had been called. in the meantime my phone rank and i handed it to mr. trump and he and secretary clinton had a
7:10 am
he commended her on how smart and tough she is. and what a great campaign she ran, and she was -- she congratulated him on his >> he did talk about bringing the country together. what are some of the immediate steps that he will take in order to do that? >> well, one step that he'll take immediately norah is to meet with president obama. i know he's very excited about that meeting. the two of them spoke last night the president-elect and the president spoke last night -- well really early this morning in the wee hour looks forward to going down to the white house and meeting with president obama and having a smooth transition. we can learn an awful lot from those who don't support us. and that's one thing we tried to do here at the trump campaign was listen to people and hear what their concerns are, their frustrations, their fierce, and i think that will continue in a trump presidency. >> will you share with us how that conversation came about with donald trump and president obama? when did that happen? >> president obama reached out to mr. trump ironically while mr. trump was on the stage.
7:11 am
and timing is everything, and of course, he called him immediately when he knew that, and they talked well into the wee hours 3:00 or 3:30 a.m. i would say. that was also a very cordial conversation between two men had been at battle, frankly, and president obama was really trying to transfer his considerable popularity and political currency over to hillary clinton and i think he and the first lady, michelle obama, went all-out for hillary clinton trying to get her victory. pretty active on the trail. >> kellyanne, it's being described as the biggest political upset that some people have seen in history, some people even using that phrase. when did you guys know that it was going your way? that this was going to happen? >> about 2 1/2 weeks ago it started to come together, gayle. we had really navigated and survived a number of darker days here on the campaign, and we
7:12 am
competitive in some of the traditionally blue states. even states like michigan, wisconsin, pennsylvania, that are very attracted to the donald trump message of creating jobs, bringing back manufacturing jobs, certainly encouraging illegal immigration, talking about fairness to the american workers, creating new jobs. and i think, frankly, just being an outsider. but what really started to crystallize is that we noticed all the time that hillary clinton had a difficult time in each of these swing states getting at 45%, 46%, 47%, l president obama achieved twice. and then i think the perfect storm was completed by obamacare premiums increasing in october. people were literally opening up the mailboxes, clicking on to their computers, and finding the notices that their premiums were exploding under obamacare, the affordable care act. it really all came together. mr. trump stuck to the issues that continued to run the campaign as it always has, with these big rallies, and wherever we went, literally, any stop
7:13 am
crowds. >> when will he meet with president obama? >> that's not set, charlie, but it could be as soon as this week. we're trying to work out those logistics today. >> kellyanne thank you for joining us. >> thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> and we're getting new information from the white house on when president obama will meet with donald trump. margaret brennan is at the white house. good morning. >> good morning, norah. well, when president obama phoned donald trump last night to congratulate him, invited him here to the white house for a through the transition, white house aides say the president also called hillary clinton last night. and remember, put this in context, he stumped more for his successor than any president in modern history. so this is a stunning blow for president obama himself, and for his legacy. he said this determined the very fate of the republic, he called donald trump temperamentally
7:14 am
trump has promised to savage obama's legacy, overturning obamacare, pulling back regulations, overhauling him grags, and tearing up that hard negotiated iran nuclear deal. so, this is going to be an interesting meeting on thursday when the two men are face-to-face. it's also setting the table for what will be an awkward conversation for president obama when he heads to europe this monday. he's going to rye to reassure allies that america will still defend them. he'll have an unpleasant trying to explain trump's friendly overtures to russia and the threats to launch a trade war with china. and it's really safe to say here, gayle, that when president obama does speak to the public later today, which we do expect him to make a statement, he's really going to have to reconcile what he said last night, which was really a statement expressing optimism, saying america has been, always will be, great but this is certainly not the wednesday
7:15 am
up to. >> margaret, thank you very much. donald trump's victory surprised the media, and baffled pollsters. the key states of florida, north carolina, pennsylvania, and wisconsin all played a pivotal role because they all landed up in donald trump's column. anthony mason is here with a breakdown of our exit polling results. good morning. >> good morning, gayle. the two key pillars of donald trump's victory were first of all men. he won men by twelve points, 53% to 41%. secondly he won whites without college agrees by 67% to 28%. more than two to one. but most important quality voters were looking for yesterday was a candidate who could bring about change. among those voters, donald trump won 83%. now there was a lot of concern after the "access hollywood" tape the republicans might desert trump and some leaders unendorsed him. well he won 81% of conservatives, 81% of his white
7:16 am
voted for donald trump. also here, three key elements of the democratic coalition. hillary clinton underperformed. she did win young voters, 55%, african-americans, 88%, and hispanics taking 65%. but in all three cases, four years ago, barack obama got 5 points or more bigger margins. so, that underperformance, those other elements i talked about with donald p, donald trump's victory was written last night. norah? >> all right, anthony, thank you. cbs news political director and face the nation moderator john dickerson is with us. good morning. >> good morning. norah. >> the clinton campaign went into election day confident. they believed they had banked a number of early votes and they were talking about a new clinton coalition. but at the end of the night they couldn't even put together the obama coalition. >> as anthony just said hillary clinton underperformed with a
7:17 am
well with. she did turn out more latino voters for example in florida. but when she was turning out voters donald trump was really turning out voters. those nonurban, non-college educated voters. she in some instances in some counties just got swamped compared to barack obama with those non-college educated voters. and in crucial states where, you know, particularly in wisconsin, and pennsylvania, where they really thought that those were solid states >> so was it the rural vote in the rust belt that really propelled donald trump to the presidency? >> well, you know, nobody else won florida. you know, so florida and north carolina, those are not rust belt states. so it was, i mean this is where it will be interesting -- >> but if michigan and wisconsin had stayed in democratic territory hillary clinton would be president of the united states if she -- well -- if she'd also win pennsylvania. >> well, it -- it -- well it
7:18 am
you're giving me flashbacks to two hours ago when we were over there. >> i can pull out my little clip board again. >> the -- you know, i mean, what's interesting to me is how you turn it into a mandate. of course donald trump will have a mandate in terms of the electoral vote but when you look at the popular vote it's pretty close. and it will be fascinating to see when he talks about standing up for the silent people, the ones who were left behind, you know there are now all the hillary clinton voters who fl >> she said, kellyanne said that they began to see it two or three weeks ago. did we see it? did pollsters see it? >> well, they did see the tightening, of course. and the tightening started before the comey fbi letter on that friday. and you know, it was unclear why it was happening. part of it might have been republicans coming home, because donald trump wasn't engaged in any controversies that set them off for a little while, and they said many times you know, when he's on the teleprompter, that's
7:19 am
it, it gave republicans nothing new to worry about, and those republicans came home. but the people that turned out for donald trump were with him for a long time. >> hmm. >> we're going to dig deeper into the details and also expecting to hear from hillary clinton today and just a reminder of where the popular vote stands at this hour, it is still very close between the two. the two candidates. more votes to be counted in the west. but incredible to still look at that. john, thank you. and as you heard we're waiting for hillary clinton to comment on the election. ahead the former democratic candidate will speak live about the upset that prevents her return to the white house. we'll bring you that speech in variable winds today. .............. after tying the record high of 83 yesterday... we'll stay warm today

7:31 am
him taking the stage the crowd has been shouting things like lock her up referring to hillary clinton. he took the stage sort of offering an olive branch to the other side and talking about wanting to work together. >> i hope that continues, right? >> indeed. welcome back to "cbs this morning." we are awaiting the first remarks from hillary clinton since she conceded the presidential election to donald trump last night. now her campaign originally said that she would be talking about this time but we just learned that her appearance has been delayed. we'll bring it to you whene >> plus, the world reacts to the coming trump white house, how moscow is looking ahead to the trump presidency. we're in russia with the uncertainty around u.s. foreign policy. >> when donald trump takes office in january, republicans will also control both houses of congress. that is the same situation democrats faced in 2008 when president obama was elected. we have a look at the balance of power. julianna, good morning. >> good morning.
7:32 am
relationship. but make no mistake, republicans are waking up this morning, a newly emboldened majority. now despite fears of losing the senate, republicans have at least a two-seat advantage with a couple of races still undecided, including new hampshire, democrats only took one seat away from republicans in illinois with represent sieve tammy dak worth beating incumbent senator mark kirk. republicans were concerned that trump would have a negative affect down the ballot but that clearly didn't happen. they were able to keep their north carolina, wisconsin, missouri, pennsylvania, and florida. that's where former presidential candidate and senator marco rubio fended off his democratic challenger. and in nevada, democrats hung on to the seat held by retiring senator, senate minority leader harry reid. catherine cortez masto won that race. in the house side republicans maintaining control of the house
7:33 am
cbs news estimates they will have about a 45-seat advantage with some races still being decided. >> looks really interesting julianna. thank you so much. >> in his speech overnight president-elect donald trump said america needs to come together and quote bind the wounds of division. he also promised he'd be the president for all people on 60 minutes on sunday and cbs news contributor and republican strategist frank luntz gathered a focus group of undecided vote a >> how did we get to the point where every one of you with different backgrounds, different politics, different objectives, all of you, gave me a negative reaction. >> because -- >> how did we get here? >> because you need -- >> one at a time. one at a time don't want you talking over each other. >> it was not heated -- >> it was heated -- >> how did we get here? >> it's our fault. you saw it here.
7:34 am
point. i'm not pro-trump but i see why people like him and if i say that i'm going to be you know ostracized. >> my biggest fear is that these candidates aren't a mistake. that the american people have elected the future of america. what we aspire to be and what we are deep down inside. i think trump has gotten so much traction at this point because deep down inside there are a lot of americans that feel the exact same way -- >> deep down our country is divided. i'm sorry. we're not united. we are at each other's throats. i'm candidate that we want. >> joining russ at the table, there is so much negativity with the group last night in that group that you showed us on "60 minutes". last night donald trump promised to unite us when so many people believe that he's the one that helped divide this country. how is he able to prove or how is he able to prove to people that i'm the one who can turn things around. how is he able to do that? >> first, last night's speech was the best representation donald trump gives.
7:35 am
he said the kinds of commitments that i was hoping he would say and he appeared to be serious. >> did you -- >> i doubt everything about politics right now. let's start with the exit polls because i'm a pollster. virtually every state was wrong. that they predicted either the wrong winner or they were off by four or five and ohio is almost 10% it was off. why? because donald trump voters don't even want to participate in polls. they don't want to tell pollsters what they're doing, not because they' because they're uncooperative. they're so hostile for the system they feel like that is giving in. >> well, donald trump's campaign paid millions of dollars to an overseas firm, it is called cambridge analytica $5 million in september alone, they used data points from gym memberships, from transactions on loyalty cards, charity donations, all to target their voters and the data people that
7:36 am
said they knew over ten days ago they might win this election. so are the pollsters wrong and there's a new way to gather data out there that the political class hasn't picked up on yet? >> you have to be able to read people when they don't necessarily tell you who they're going to vote for. that there are other things, decision making process. >> but the obama team did that in 2008, 2012. they said we can tell what kind of car you buy. >> microtargeting. >> but the issue now is, when you have -- when you are so upset with the way things going, when you think washington, and wall street then you absolutely you're not going to cooperate and you're going to find some other way to express your point of view. now i went to a couple of trump rallies on monday and what i saw were people who not only couldn't wait to vote but they were going to drag 10, 15 people with them. >> where was that? >> in pennsylvania, which he won. and in north carolina, which he won. hillary clinton, we forget that hillary clinton was actually not
7:37 am
traditional election being a first lady, secretary of state, and senator would absolutely qualify you and would probably propel you to the presidency. but if you have an electorate that is so angry with the system and so angry with the elites as part of the system, that's actually -- >> did we hear that she was not a good candidate before last night? >> absolutely. >> feels like i'm hearing that more and more last night. until then everyone you know, she was hillary clinton. the most qualified candidate. the best suited for the job. the best temperament. candidate. >> -- being qualified and being -- >> being a good candidate. >> and also she had 43%, 42% favorability rating before. 53%, 54% didn't like her. we forgot that. we weren't talking about the fact that she had the highest negativity of any democratic nominee and now we are being reminded of it. one more we did a survey last night 1200 voters and asked them, bernie sanders versus
7:38 am
bernie sanders over donald trump. and the reason why, character. we wanted to say that elections are about policy. they aren't. they're actually about who you trust. who you have more faith in, and who do you think understands you -- >> you think this election was more about character or change? >> i think it was more about change. not just change in terms of policy, in terms of trust. and we simply didn't trust her. and the exit polls, which i don't want to cite ever again, but even the exit polls talked ab hillary clinton. >> but they also said change was the most important driving factor. >> right. that's why i don't understand why they were so wrong. why they had clinton winning state after state that trump actually won. this is a very interesting -- i think it's actually very good day for democracy. and it's a very bad day for pollsters. >> do you consider yourself a pollster? >> of course not. >> i did yesterday but did, i'm a communications specialist. >> okay, got it frank. >> always reinvent yourself. >> yeah. >> and i have to do it every
7:39 am
>> communications specialist. got it. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. >> my new name is kimani king i'm reinventing myself right now. you like that? >> i like gayle. >> i'm keep gayle, g-a-y-l-e. vladimir putin said the vote has given him new hope about u.s. re-elections. we'll take you to moscow and the reaction of the russian people to donald trump's win. and we invite you to subscribe >> the "cbs this morning" podcast. it just hit 1 million downloads. which is quite an accomplishment since we just started. you'll get the news of the day extended interviews and podcast originals. find them all on itunes and apple's podcast app. >> old gold, pretzels you can

i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto? significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. ing one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines.

unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know.

russian president vladimir putin is signaling his express at donald trump's victory. elizabeth palmer is in moscow. good morning. >> good morning. some foreign heads of states were alarmed by donald trump's victory. but president vladimir putin certainly wasn't one of them. after sending his telegram he went on to say that this may be the moment for the warming of what has become very frosty relations. russia is ready, he said, and wants to restore full-fledged relations with the united states. but putin added it wouldn't be easy. even though during the campaign trump's tone was often russia friendly, he praised putin's leadership. >> the man has very strong control over a country.

? good morning to our viewers in the west. i'm sure you heard the news, it is election day, the day after election day, we have all the results, wednesday november 9th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead, including hillary clinton. we're waiting for her first comments about her defeat and we'll bring them to you live. but, first, here is today's eye opener at 8:00. >> the night begins gloomily but despair gave way to joy and no matter how improbably the presidency was trump's. >> her campaign says she will speak today. >> when president obama phoned donald trump last night to congratulate, he invited him
8:01 am
>> look forward to going down to the white house and meeting with president obama and having a smooth transition. we can learn a lot from those who don't support us. >> it is the world in the rust belt that propelled donald trump. >> yes and no. he also won florida. >> i think it is a big day for democracy and bad day for pollsters. today i'm a communications specialist. >> okay, got it. >> we as a nation agree that we should never, ever have another election like this one. do you agree? now, please, get out there, kiss a democrat, go hug a republican, the election is over. you survived. good night and may god bless america. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle
8:02 am
president of the united states. he overcame incredible odds to reach that goal. the republican nominee beat hillary clinton first run for office. cbs news estimates he won at least 289 electoral votes from 29 states. we still cannot call a winner in minnesota, michigan, and new hampshire. >> but we can tell you hillary clinton is leading in the popular vote right now. and we're waiting for her to make her first remarks abo election. these are live pictures from the new yorker hotel here in manhattan where she will appear in just a few minutes. we'll bring you her remarks as soon as they happen. donald trump says that clinton already congratulated him and his supporters when she called him last night. >> to all republicans and democrats and independents across this nation, i say it is time for us to come together as
8:03 am
it is time. i pledge to every citizen of our land that i will be president for all americans, and this is so important to me. >> major garrett was there for that victory speech. he's been covering the trump campaign from the beginning. maj, good morning. take us there, what it was like there in the room. trump were not surprised, resilient all night, quiet at first because the early returns were not painting a picture of a trump surprise victory. they were a little bit on the darker side, not necessarily looking so good. but the trump supporters are nothing if not resilient. they see something in donald trump he sees something in them, and they just waited for the news to break their way. and as it did, gradually through the night, the ripples went through the crowd until there
8:04 am
trump would not only win but hillary clinton conceded and waited to see the next president elect. >> major, what about the rural vote? how do they attribute that as part of the coalition that led to his victory? >> sure, so the whole unified theory for the donald trump campaign was there was this underappreciated leviathan in american demographic politics, the white vote. so much talk about the vote, the latino vote, they're, like, wait a minute, there are millions of white americans who have given up on politics and we if we re-engage them, we can win. that's the process he went through from the very beginning of his announcement speech all the way through the end of his campaign. when he talks about as he did this morning on twitter the forgotten man and the forgotten woman in this country that's who he's talking about, that was their hunch, it proved to be correct. >> major, thank you very much. former president george h.w.
8:05 am
morning. mr. bush tweeted, barbara and i congratulate donald trump, wish him well as he guides america forward as our next president. his family is in our prayers. and we're waiting for hillary clinton to make her first remarks this morning. she did not speak to her supporters last night. nancy cordes is inside the hotel now where clinton is expected to speak this hour. nancy, good morning. >> good morning, norah. we have been told that hillary clinton has left the peninsula stayed last night, a few minutes ago and is on her way here to the new yorker hotel, about two miles away in midtown manhattan. behind me, you'll see that every seat in this ballroom is filled and there are more people gathering, standing on the sides. these are supporters, donors, friends, campaign aides, all gathered here who we saw hugging, some of them crying as they entered the ballroom.
8:06 am
anyone expected, including clinton herself. you have to remember that as of yesterday, she was leading in the polls in every single state that they thought they needed to get to 270 electoral votes. at some point she had been leading in the polls in those states by double digits and beyond that the campaign had what they believed was a superior ground game with millions of volunteers. they said that they knocked on more than the past four days. so they felt that they had the edge that way as well. they had been blanketing the airwaves with ads in all of those battleground states, so wisconsin was a state that they will admit was never on the table for them. they thought that that was a state that she would win easily and that's why she hadn't been to the state in about seven months. now, we don't know much about what clinton is going to say in this speech, we do know she
8:07 am
and conceded to him, so we expect that she'll say something about that today. there was some question about why she didn't come out and address her supporters overnight. and one thing that i'm told by some of the people who spoke to her is she simply didn't have the words for what it was she wanted to express overnight. her campaign had written a concession speech, but no one expected that she was going to have to use it. and i can imagine that written even as we speak in the car on the way over here. >> wow, nancy, thank you. >> john heilemann is editor of bloomberg politics and co-host of the circus on show time. do we know what happened between the time that john podesta came and said, look, she's not going it make an announcement, go home, and hillary clinton calls up on the phone and says, i'm conceding.
8:08 am
spoke, wisconsin, michigan, arizona, minnesota, and new hampshire were all still outstanding and trump was not over 2 70. when wisconsin got called, trump went over 270 and in addition to going over 270, the clinton campaign looked at those additional states, particularly michigan and realized we're not going to win michigan and at that point you started the electoral votes started to stack up. some states are still not called but the assumption is that trump will be over 300 and when podesta made his statement, still a lot of thinking about going and challenging one of the other states. if he had only been at 275, trump, that is, go to north carolina and you fight for a recount, you go to pennsylvania and you make a legal challenge. but once you realize that he's going to be over 300 electoral votes, there is not -- you're not going to be able to fight that out. >> this election simply the fact that trump had a theory of the case that turned out to be true? >> well, i think --
8:09 am
something else? >> look, he got fewer votes than mitt romney got in 2012. and yet he won vastly more electoral votes and he's going to be the next president of the united states. she wildly underperformed as a candidate and, you know, there are a lot of questions about polling, got it all wrong, both the internal polling and clinton campaign and she did not turn out -- did not come close to turning out the obama coalition let alone build a coalition of her own and he caught the populous moment that bere sanders tapped into, that he tapped into, and brexit tapped into as well. >> she couldn't even turn out the obama coalition, blacks, latinos and millennials, she didn't come out with the same number that obama did. but what about suburban women? white college educated women, the polls said this is the swing vote. they're going to break for hillary clinton. did they? >> no. look, she won white college educated women, but it was consistent polling for months, said she would win that cohort
8:10 am
she won it by about 10. >> and lost it -- >> lost it in certain places. polling is broken. and not just broken here in america, broken in europe, we have seen this over and over again, there is going to be a deep profound autopsy that is going to happen over the next six months because every political strategist i know is totally confounded by why these polls were all so off and that is why a lot of us j me included, you look at all the polling and said, well, she is clearly on track to win this election. but if the polling is messed up, and the strategists don't understand it, that's part of why journalists get misled and why we came to the wrong conclusions about where this race is headed. >> maybe returning to shoe leather reporting. shoe leather politics. >> they're not inconsistent. you got to -- you should be able to do both. politics is part art and part science. science has been predominant and becoming more important in
8:11 am
screwy. >> ahead, we're in california where backers of recreational use are celebrating a win and
8:12 am
we're waiting for hillary clinton and her running mate tim kaine to speak here in new york. we want to show you live pictures of the manhattan hotel where they will both speak. their supporters who have gathered there, obviously disappointed about the results of this election, what will hillary clinton say? we'll bring you those remarks in a cbs news special report. you're watching "cbs this morning." ? if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla (apremilast).

8:16 am
john dickerson is with us again. we come to this central question about understanding, in terms of the people who voted for donald trump, we -- help us understand all of who it is. >> it is a million fewer voters than mitt romney got which is important when we get to the
8:17 am
this is a cbs news special report. i'm charlie rose with norah o'donnell and gayle king in new york. house speaker paul ryan is speaking to reporters in wisconsin. we expect he'll discuss the election of president-elect donald trump. core institutions. they don't feel heard and they don't feel represented by those in office. but donald trump heard a voice out in this country that no one else heard. he connected in ways with people no one else did. he turned politics on its head. and now donald trump will lead a unified republican government. and we will work hand-in-hand on a positive agenda to tackle this
8:18 am
i want to congratulate my friend mike pence. mike pence is a good man, a principled conservative. and he will make a great vice president. i want to congratulate reince priebus. you need to know how proud we are in wisconsin of reince priebus. what he has done to rebuild our party is remarkable. i want to congratulate mitch mcconnell and our republican colleagues in the senate. i want to congratulate ron johnson, something we've worked so hard here at home on his vict spent four days on a bus in wisconsin crisscrossing the state urging all republicans to come together to unify to win and that's exactly what happened. it was close quarters at time. and it was worth it to get ron back the next six years. of course i'm immensely proud of the campaign that our house members and our candidates ran. i want to congratulate greg walden and team at the nrcc and our entire house leadership team. what a phenomenal job. look at it this way, our house majority is bigger than
8:19 am
expected. and much of that is thanks to donald trump. donald trump provided the kind of coat tails that got a lot of people over the finish line so we could maintain our strong house and senate majorities. now we have important work to do. many months ago republicans in the house united around a bold specific agenda for this country. it offers a better way forward for america and it will help us hit the ground running as we work with donald trump to do this. we will honor the timeless founded on, liberty, freedom, free enterprise, consent of the government. and we will apply those principles to the problems of the day. this is the kind of unified republican government that we set out to deliver. i want to close with this. there is no doubt our democracy can be very messy. and we do remain a sharply divided country. but now as we do every four
8:20 am
campaign. i think president-elect donald trump set the perfect tone last night for doing just this. and i know president obama and secretary clinton are committed to bringing the country together. this needs to be a time of redemption, not a time of recrimination. we all need to rededicate ourselves to making america great and making it a more perfect union. with that, let me take your questions. >> mr. speaker during the campaign there were times in the campaign you were critical of donald trump. [ inaudible ] some of your colleagues were critical of you that you have not influenced donald trump enough during the campaign. is your relationship with the president-elect and your conservatives in the house intact? >> yes, it is. i think our relationship is fine. i've spoken with donald twice in the last 18 hours. we spoke last night, we spoke again this morning, spoke to my good friend mike pence twice as well. i think we are going to hit the
8:21 am
together. we're very excited. look, kelly, when i say seven out of ten americans don't like the direction the country's going, they just voted. i think what donald trump just pulled off is an enormous political feat. it's an enormous feat in he heard those voices that were out there that other people weren't hearing. and he just earned a mandate. and we now just have a unified republican government. if you listen to us in the closing days of this campaign, whether it was crisscrossing america or crisscrossing wisconsin, we were making appeal to our fellow citizens and to all r unify. and we did just that. that's why i'm excited about where we are. >> mr. speaker? >> yeah. >> during any of your conversations with the president-elect, did he assure you he supports your speakership? >> we had great conversations about how we worked together on the transition to make this work together. we're trying to get our schedules lined up to meet to flesh out how we build our transition, how we go forward. so, yes, i'm very excited about our ability to work together. >> what do you say to voters in
8:22 am
things you were concerned about during this campaign. president-elect trump's comments about women, latinos, what do you say to the people who are concerned? >> i'll say to wisconsinites what i said before the election, look at these issues, look at the potential for our country, look at the direction we've been going, look at the direction we need to go and look at what a unified republican government can get you. look, i'm really proud of the fact that for the first time since 1984 wisconsin's ten electoral votes went to republi frankly you saw, charles, you saw it, we didn't think it could happen. donald trump turned it on its head. donald trump delivered the ten electoral votes. and by the way he helped elect a strong majority in the senate and strong majority in the house. charles. >> i want to ask about that. you're going to repeal and replace obamacare, how quickly, what does it look like? say to folks who don't feel like he is going to be their president? >> i think after a tough
8:23 am
that they were pitching so hard for one or the other, the time is to heal and unify. this health care law, charles, is not a popular law. it's collapsing under its own weight. to your specific question about repealing and replacing obamacare, this congress, this house majority, this senate majority has already demonstrated in proving we're able to pass that legislation and put it on the president's desk. problem is president obama vetoed it. now we have president trump coming who is asking us to do this. so with we can fix these problems. look, it's not just the health care law we can replace because we now have shown the willingness and the ability to do it. there are so many more things i'm excited about. think about the laid off co-workers now who see relief coming. think about the farmers here in wisconsin being harassed by the epa and waters of the usa. think about the ranchers in the west who are getting harassed by the interior department or the laid off timber workers. there is relief coming. this is good for our country.
8:24 am
oppressive weight of the regulatory state, we can restore the constitution. think about the conservative constitution respecting judges that will be nominated. this is very exciting. >> there you have speaker paul ryan taking questions, reacting to donald trump's victory. we also want to show you these live pictures inside the new yorker hotel here in manhattan where hillary clinton and her running mate tim kaine are expected to following a defeat in their quest for the presidency. john dickerson is here, host of "face the nation." first, what do we expect from hillary clinton? >> well, what a difference a victory makes, by the way, i just wanted to say on paul ryan who said he wouldn't defend donald trump or campaign for him, now he is his best friend. >> he said don about five times
8:25 am
ryan his speakership? >> i think so. and if he didn't, that speech we just heard there -- >> just heard ryan say -- >> yeah, i mean, he's hugging him as tightly as you can. i think what will be interesting to see from hillary clinton today is, you know, she has a sense of history. she was the first woman nominee of a major party. i think she wants to pay homage to that. and when you run on these campaigns, all these people who dedicate their lives, who stay up all way across the country for you, it puts a tremendous weight on any candidate. and to pay that back, there you can't pay it back, but as a candidate you want to try to do something that honors all of that hard work that was done on your behalf. >> give our viewers a preview -- apologize, gayle, give our viewers, we're expecting to hear from senator tim kaine first, her vice presidential running mate who has never lost an
8:26 am
years. now he's 8-1. he's won eight and lost one after last night. >> i was saying it had to be heartbreaking for hillary clinton. nancy cordes said in her piece, many people wanted to hear from her last night and were very disappointed when she left without saying anything to anyone. but nancy cordes reported that hillary clinton said she just didn't know what to say. it looks like tim kaine is about to enter the room. >> and this will be the first time we have heard from hillary clinton. >> there was applause, but that wasn't tim kaine. but nancy was saying that she just wasn't able to speak last she wanted some time to collect her thoughts, figure out what she wanted to say to the people who worked so hard. >> even though they did have a consolation speech, didn't think it reflected what she wanted to say. >> also give it in the dead of night it becomes a part of the, you know, the story, and we be galloping on today talking about, you know, some other thing at length. and i think, again, getting back to this notion of respecting all this work that was done for her, i think this kind of moment and it is set up and does that.
8:27 am
2008 she wanted to be the first woman president, she wanted to be president. and then a successful tour as secretary of state and then decided to run for president again, got the nomination, struggled and then found out once again she's not going to be president. >> yeah. you could see the pain last night on the people's faces who had gathered to support her. and you can still see the pain this morning. this is very difficult for them. >> remember also this is such a hard fought campaign where people had feeling about 59 million people voted and many of them had a feeling because of the way our modern politics are but also because of this campaign felt like the election of donald trump represented a real threat to the things they believe, to those who've been marginalized, to people of color. i mean, there are strong emotions not just with losing but with who the winner is. and it will be very interesting to see hillary clinton here because as a last act, not just
8:28 am
for her but also to speak and to try to begin this healing. she has a role that she can play. and we'll see how much time -- >> donald trump gave her an opportunity last night by what he said after all the nasty things that was said about, you know, put her in jail and indict her if i'm president and all that. >> right. >> i mean, different terms last night. >> you know, we should be -- the popular vote still has hillary clinton leading at this hour just by about now, i know it's going to change. >> but you know what just occurred to me the republicans if it doesn't change will have lost the popular vote in six of the last seven. >> right. >> because remember george bush was elected without winning the popular vote. and that gets to the question of mandate. if more people voted for hillary clinton, she actually has the mandate by the number of votes. >> well, her and al gore can have lunch. >> exactly. >> and talk about to win the
8:29 am
president of the united states. >> but it is still ironic, guys, we're in this conversation. there'd been so much conversation would donald trump reach across the aisle would he be gracious if he had to deliver this type of speech -- concession speech, exactly. very few people thought it would be hillary clinton that she would be the one that would have to address donald trump, that she would have to address us to describe what happened during this campaign. >> and not that it's analogous, but it was a bitter primary fight with barack obama and a devastating defeat. and she administration as secretary of state. and those close to her say this is someone who puts country ahead of party. i don't see hillary clinton working in a donald trump administration, but it will be interesting to see how she foreshadows how she wants to take her message to the supporters who backed her, the change she wanted to enact for because there are many people that spent -- you know, campaigns are movements and you
8:30 am
is both republican and democratic people live together for almost two years. and then all of a sudden you have either victory or really a crashing devastating defeat. >> but it was extraordinary that she and barack obama could work together because that was as you said, norah, very bitter. i remember the phrase nobody thought the two of them could work together yet they did. >> and it was his idea. >> and it was his idea and made it work very well. >> one of best surrogates on the >> in the way george w. bush appointed bill clinton to, i guess it was tsunami relief. if donald trump were really a couple years from now really still trying to work across the aisle appointing hillary clinton to some mission, you know, he's got symbolic acts he needs to take. if he hopes to live up to the words of his speech last night, there's a lot of symbolism.
8:31 am
state hillary clinton address supporters in manhattan. and essentially to deliver the concession speech that some of her supporters wanted to hear from her last night, but she was not yet able to give. we're also going to hear from her running mate, senator tim kaine. also want to preview that we're also expecting to hear from the 44th president of the united states, that's barack obama. he's expected to speak after about noon eastern time today. his first statements about the election. we know that he has already spoken with donald trump to congratulate him in what campaign manager kellyanne conway described a brief one-minute conversation. >> and we assume he's talked to hillary clinton as well. >> we do know that he has talked with hillary clinton. we do know he's also spoken with hillary clinton. we have an extraordinary couple of days ahead of us as trump and obama get together to plot the
8:32 am
hillary clinton's moment. >> yeah. >> where we're going to see her for the first time. we're going to hear from her for the first time. i think it's fair to say since i've talked to her closest advisors at the beginning of the night last night, they felt that they were going to win. >> oh, yeah. that's right. you could feel over the last week because of the early vote they were really on top of it because they had such a strong organization in the state, they going their way. >> i think they thought they were going to win from the very beginning, from the time they announced their candidacy. >> yeah, although they knew, i mean, certainly in talking to advisors over the time, the expression at various times we have a tough hand to play here. they knew she had challenges. you know, she's been running for president basically for about ten years. >> that's right. >> when she first started against barack obama. >> do you think the e-mail scandal and disclosure by fbi
8:33 am
hour -- it was -- it's been razor thin in terms of in the states. and we know popular vote. >> well, she underperformed barack obama by 5 million votes. i don't think it's all james comey. i think there's probably some way in which that letter affected the race certainly -- >> reinforcements. >> reinforcing or keeping donald trump out of the news cycle and when he was in the news cycle you knew -- >> it wasn't just what james comey said, it was also the >> yeah. but she underperformed with millennials, with african-americans and with latino voters. and she was not able to get enough suburban college educated women to overcome donald trump's real amazing strength with non-college educated white voters. so it was a turnout problem across the board. >> clapping for someone entering the room at this moment. >> there's huma abedin. that's a good sign that must
8:34 am
>> one of her closest advisors entering the room. >> and as we mentioned, we're going to hear -- yeah. as we've been reporting we're going to hear first from senator tim kaine of the state of virginia who will remain in the united states senate. and here they are. >> there he is. >> approaching the podium. >> thank you so much. [ applause ] >> my wife anne and i are so proud of hillary clinton. [ cheers and applause ] i'm proud of hillary clinton
8:35 am
great history maker in everything she has done, as a civil rights lawyer and first lady of arkansas and first lady of this country and senator and secretary of state. she has made history in a nation that is good at so many things but that has made it uniquely difficult for a woman to be elected to federal office. she became the first major party nominee as a woman to be president. and last night won the vote of americans. [ cheers and applause ] that is an amazing accomplishment. it is an amazing accomplishment. i'm proud of hillary clinton
8:36 am
langston, she's held fast to dreams. she was inspired at a young age to an epiphany that if families and children do well, that's the best barometer for whether a society does well. in everything she's done she's focused on that. we know she would have made history as a president in one sense, but we never had had a president who's made their whole career about the empowerment of families and children. and i was as excited about that in the oval office as i excited to have my friend hillary there and make history as the first woman president. i'm excited and proud of hillary because she has built such a wonderful team. there is a -- [ applause ] there's a beautiful and kind of comi comical in new testament hires a vineyard worker to work i'm
8:37 am
day then hires people at noon going to pay you the same thing for half a day and those who started earlier in the day say hold on, we don't like you're treating everybody who came late just as well as you're treating us. i want to tell you something, here's what i've come to know so well about hillary. the team that she has assembled over the years of people that are so deeply loyal to her because she's so deeply loyal to them is inspiring. i've seen that same degree of loyalty and sensitivity extended to the most recent folks who've joined the team, the folks who came to the vineyard with just one hour to go. her loyalty and compassion of hillary and bill to people if you're with you, you're with you and that is just something so remarkable. and finally, i'm proud of hillary because she loves this country. nobody --
8:38 am
nobody had to wonder about hillary clinton whether she would accept an outcome of an election in our beautiful democracy. nobody had to ask that question. nobody had to doubt it. she knows our country for what it is. she knows the system that we have and she's deeply in love with it and accepts it. she's been in battles before where if it didn't go her way she accepted it but then woke up the next day and battled again for the dreams that she's held fast to. something that i think is obvious to everybody. obvious to everyone. i want to thank hillary clinton for asking ann and i to join this wild ride. we about a week before she asked if i would be her running mate, ann and i went up to westchester and sat down with hillary and bill and chelsea and mark and charlotte and aden for about three hours of conversation to try to determine whether we
8:39 am
on the ticket. and when we got in the car to head back to the airport after the three-hour discussion, i said to ann, honey, i don't know whether we're going to be on this ticket or not, but i do know this. we're going to remember that three hours for the rest of our life. and now we'll remember 105 days that we've had with this fantastic couple of public servants and all of you for the rest of our life. i'll just say this, hillary and i know well the wisdom in the words of william said they kilt us, but they ain't whooped us yet. they kilt us, but they ain't whooped us yet. because -- because -- because we know. [ cheers and applause ] we know that the work remains. we know that the dreams of empowering families and children
8:40 am
work that we have to do as a nation it is so comforting even at a tough time to know that hillary clinton is somebody until her very last breath is going to be battling for the values that make this nation great and the values that we care so deeply about. so now please join me in welcoming secretary hillary rodham clinton.

8:43 am
but i want you to remember this. our campaign was never about one person or even one election. it was about the country we love and about building an america that's hopeful, inclusive and big hearted. we have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought. but i still believe in america. and i always will. andf accept this result and then look to the future. donald trump is going to be our president. we owe him an open mind and a chance to lead. our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power. and we don't just respect that, we cherish it. it also enshrines other things, the rule of law, the principle
8:44 am
and dignity, freedom of worship and expression. we respect and cherish these values too. and we must defend them. [ applause ] now, and let me add, our constitution our participation, not just every four years but all the time. so let's do all we can to keep advancing the causes and values we all hold dear. making our economy work for everyone, not just those at the top. protecting our country and protecting our planet. and breaking down all the barriers that hold any american back from achieving their dreams.

determined leadership that has meant so much to so many americans and people across the world. and to bill and chelsea, mark, charlotte, aden, our brothers and our entire family, my love for you means more than i can ever express. you crisscrossed this country on our behalf and lifted me up when iee 4-month-old aden who traveled with his mom. i will always be grateful to the creative, talented, dedicated men and women at our headquarters in brooklyn and across our country.
8:48 am
you poured your hearts into this campaign. for some of you who are vet vans, it was a campaign after you had done other campaigns, some of you it was your first campaign. i want each of you to know that you were the best campaign anybody could have ever expected or wanted. volunteers, community leaders, activists and union organizers who knocked on doors, talked to neighbors, posted on facebook, even in secret private facebook sit sites, i want everybody coming out from behind that and make sure your voices are heard going forward.
8:49 am
to everyone who sent in contributions as small as $5 and kept us going, thank you. thank you from all of us. and to the young people in particular, i hope you will hear this. i have, as tim said, spent my entire adult life fighting for what i believe in. i've had successes and i've had setbacks. sometimes really painful many of you are at the beginning of your professional, public and political careers. you will have successes and setbacks too. this loss hurts. but please never stop believing that fighting for what's right is worth it.
8:50 am
it is. it is worth it. [ applause ] and so we need you to keep up these fights now and for the rest of your lives. especially the young women who put their faith in this campaign and in me, i want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion.
8:51 am
now, i know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but some day someone will. and hopefully sooner than we might think right now. and to all the are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.
8:52 am
our country and for all it has given to me, i count my blessings every single day that i am an american. and i still believe as deeply as i ever have that if we stand together and work together with respect for our differences, strength in our convictions and love for this nation, our best days are still ahead [ applause ] because you know, you know, i believe we are stronger together and we will go forward together. and you should never everregret fighting for. you know, scripture tells us, let us not grow weary in doing
8:53 am
reap if we do not lose heart. so my friends, let us have faith in each other. let us not grow weary. let us not lose heart. for there are more seasons to come. and there is more work to do. i am incredibly honored and grateful to have had this chance to represent all of you in this consequential election. may god bless you. and may god bless the united states of america. [ cheers and applause ] >> that was hillary clinton in her first comments to the nation, to her family, to her supporters. she said it was painful and will be painful for a long time. but she said we also owe donald trump an open mind. and reminding us this country respects the rule of law, the right to disagree and the freedom of worship.
8:54 am
dream to be president. >> it's interesting how she made a point of saying she reached out to donald trump last night and that she offered to work with him on behalf of our country. she apologized for not winning, but she feels pride and gratitude for the campaign that they built together. she was very -- she thanked her staff profusely and her supporters and her family. it was really very touching to hear from her. >> this was a history making candidacy and campaign. >> yeah. >> she was the nominee of either party. she had hoped to become the first female president in our nation's history. and i think she tried to while this was clearly a very painful moment, she said this loss hurts and it's going to hurt for a long time. >> a long time. >> she tried to open it up about what this moment means. and provide some hope. >> that's right. and it was clearly with an eye towards history she made two important points. one was about the value of public service.
8:55 am
younger voters and their inspiration or not with the clinton campaign. and when she talked about there will always be setbacks but keep fighting for those things you believe in, that connection between the candidate and all the people who spent all of their time volunteering for them. and her second message was to young girls, arguing that just because she was unable to break the glass ceiling that they have value and worth sending a kind of again with an eye towards history recognizing this is a moment that this might be replayed that she had a message to send outside of the context of this campaign. >> but to little girls never doubt who you are, you're valuable, powerful and deserving of achieving your own dreams, your best days, she said my best days and your best days are still ahead. >> it was also an affirmation of all the values of this country that she so deeply believes in because this is a woman who's given much of her life to public service.
8:56 am
campaign biography she has spent more than 30 years in public life working for children, working for families. most of us, you know, who might think of hillary clinton might not even think of her time as first lady but think of some of the more controversial things like the benghazi episode. but she has been involved in public service for most of her lifetime. and i think while she did not achieve that as she put it that symbolic of glass ceiling that has prevented women from achieving the top post, not only in politics but across many different fields. what she didn't say but did allude to is that the popular vote there are currently at this hour 59,442,911 small cracks in that glass ceiling. >> you said tim kaine mentioned it though.
8:57 am
the american dream is for everybody, men and women, immigrants, lgbt community and the disabled. >> i love that tim kaine opened it up by saying -- by pointing out, listen, she won the popular vote. there's something to be said about that. in quoting faulkner, they kilt us but they ain't whooped us yet. the work remains. >> too currently along with barack obama the leaders of the democratic party. they've got to move forward, a party, a group ofpo who are about to -- most are about to go home and pull the covers over their heads. and so they have to provide a note of hope. and barack obama's also going to do that when we hear from him in about the next half hour from the white house rose garden. >> and the question remains what will hillary clinton do next? that's what i'm curious to see. what is her next chapter? >> i think she will spend a lot of time -- >> that's not a bad thing.
8:58 am
>> does donald trump ask for her help, do you think, john? >> well, perhaps later in times. >> great. president obama is expected to make remarks from the white house in the next half hour. scott pelley will bring those to you in another special report. >> our coverage will continue throughout the day on our 24-hour streaming network, that's cbsn. and there will be a one-hour long "cbs evening news," this has been a cbs special report. i'm charlie rose with norah o'donnell, gayle king, john
