california today holding fundraisers. >> thank you, nancy. face the nation moderator and political director john dickerson is in washington. john, good morning? >> good morning, charlie. >> on the one hand people say marco rubio and others say that donald trump is only getting one third of the republican vote. as well, other people will suggest that if anybody on the republican side wins new hampshire and south carolina, they're almost unstoppable. how do you bring those two ideas together? >> well, we're going to find out now. the field has widowed and this has what the anti-trump forces have been waiting for, one person that can represent the mainstream republican vote going up against donald trump. but the challenge then and that person marco rubio has said is him, john kasich disputes that, but rubio has to take the case to trump. and what we saw in south carolina is what we see with every trump victory, the new

quickly when he survived in is south carolina being booed, getting in a fight with the pope and taking on george w. bush and survived all that to win. he looks in good shape now. >> who is best positioned to do well in those states on super tuesday, a huge delegate load there? >> well, donald trump is best positioned. he's got the momentum of these wins. he is doing well in those states. obviously ted cruz has an advantage in texas. he also cruz has some advantage in those southern states that are on super tuesday, but the problem for ted cruz is if you look at south carolina, that was a state with 75 roughly% of evangelical voters a lot of conservative voters and he couldn't beat trump there after being in sustained combat for a month he couldn't beat him back. so that suggests it will be quite hard for him to do that on super tuesday. >> who benefits most, do you think, from jeb bush's departure from the race. it was clearly an emotional time
7:13 am
i'm wondering if you heard anything about that. >> well, both rubio and kasich have said they've talked to people who donated to jeb bush and have gotten some support. it looks like marco rubio is benefits more. it's not so much the voters that will come to those two candidates, but it's the money and so right now it looks like marco rubio may be grabbing some of that more than john kasich. >> john dickerson, thank you. the supreme court is back in session right now for the first time since the death of justice antonin scalia. thousands of mourners gathered funeral. scalia's son, paul, led mass at the nation's largest roman catholic church. jan crawford is at the supreme court where the remaining justices are hearing oral arguments in two cases. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. today really marks the start of an uncertain chapter for the supreme court. none of the eight justices have ever served on the bench without justice scalia. but when they took their seats on the bench, just a few minutes
7:14 am
empty. it is going to be covered in a black memorial cloth for the next 30 days. now, today's cases are run of the mill. one is a criminal case. the other is about government contracts, but it is hard to imagine an oral argument without scalia. he was such a dominant presence. without scalia, who is a conservative obviously, this court is now divided 4-4 along ideological lines, many of the controversial cases are probably going to end up in a tie. and that means that the lower court decision will stand unless the supreme court reschedules them next term. >> and jan what are your sources telling you about where we are in terms of picking a successor for scalia? >> well, the president spent the weekend reviewing files of possible nominees, but republicans are saying that they are going to block any one that he sends up to the senate. they say with the court divided now, they're not going to left him shift it to the left. the stakes could not be any higher. >> jan, thank you so much. the fbi director is making a

good morning to our viewers in the west. it is monday, february 22nd, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there's more real news ahead including the presidential candidates at a critical stage in the race to the white house. peggy noonan shows us how this weekend's results are changing the campaign but first, here's today's "eye opener at 8."
8:00 am
be arraigned later today and to face six murder charges. in recent years, no republican has won south carolina and new hampshire and gone on to lose the nomination. >> you're going to say, please, please, mr. president, we can't stand it anymore, we don't want to keep winning. >> taking on george w. bush, getting in a fight with the pope and he survived all of that to win. nevada was a huge relief for the clinton camp. the candidates have 13 contests over the next week and a half. i'm standing just a few yards from where one of the massive car bombs went off. the devastation is just epic. the miami police officer say don't expect them to provide security because critics say one of deyonsbeyonce's new songs disparages police officers. jeb has been a great father, great husband and is one of my
8:01 am
>> i know she's joking. but that is literally what you say about your fourth favorite son. >> this morning's "eye opener at 8" is presented by nationwide. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. the democratic presidential race is turning towards south carolina where hillary clinton is still the favorite in saturday's primary. clinton is almost a quarter of the way towards her party's nomination. she has 501 convention delegates. bernie sanders has only 70. >> clinton's campaign was leaved after saturdayay win in nevada. the race got tighter after a big loss in new hampshire and razor thin victory in iowa. clinton's six-point win over bernie sanders bolstered her position as the democratic front-runner. they still have the momentum for the upcoming primary and the november election. nevada's republican caucuses are tomorrow.
8:02 am
south carolina primary will be campaigning in nevada today. donald trump swept a victory as voter turnout set a record. marco rubio edge out ted cruz for second place by just over 1,000 votes. jeb bush's third disappointing finish in a row marks the end of his presidential bid. he suspendeds had campaign before all the votes were counted. "wall street journal" columnist peggy noonan is a cbs news contributor, writing extensively about the 2016 race. good morning. >> good morning, guys. yay, it's monday! >> yes. we love monday. >> it was tough to see jeb bush on the stage pull out of the race. what do you think that says about where we are now? >> oh, my gosh, it says a million things. this was a candidacy that i was skeptical of actually from the beginning. it didn't seem to me that jeb was the answer to any question the republican base was asking.
8:03 am
of people in politics who think we've got the money, we've got the money, we're going to blow you away. he had the money. he didn't blow anybody away. they think we can buy up all the talent, all the advisers, consultants, we're going to kill you. he had all those consultants and talent. it didn't work. nothing is sure in politics. that was something that didn't work. >> $150 million didn't work. >> they say, i wonder what's left and i wonder where it goes? you know? >> sometimes there's a right time to run and sometimes there's a wrong time to run. >> that's true. also there was a funny -- jeb was a former highly successful two-term governor of florida as you well know. it had been a while since he had run for office. he was not a great candidate, part of the reason was he constantly saw his sense of unease out there. that to me is mysterious and i wonder what it was about. there was a sense with jeb that
8:04 am
trying, really working but on some level, his heart or his psyche wasn't into it. his smile, i notice, never reached his eyes. you know? whereas a john kasich, he can't stop smiling. he's trying to get his eyes to come down. >> a happy warrior. >> yes, yes, i think he is. >> go ahead. >> donald trump is now leading in ten of the next 14 states, leading in the polls. is he unstoppable? >> well, you know, the proper approach of anybody prague prognosticating in politics right now is humility, humility, humility. >> this doesn't seem like the year of humility. >> no, for prognosticators. >> i want to preface everything with my god, nobody has any idea. everybody thought donald trump was stop himself with his mouth,
8:05 am
the fact that not only did you not know what he was going to say next, there was a sense he didn't know what he was going to say next. he hasn't stopped himself. he's only sort of grown on. it's interesting to me that he has like 25% of the party and polls and maybe 30% and then maybe 34%. it seems to me that as he continues to roll up wins as they suspect he will, that that ceiling will probably get higher. >> look to the democrats, where do you think hillary is today? >> hillary is saved. she took it right in the face in new hampshire, had a dangerous loss. she just came back. in nevada she can now, i think, sort of subtly or not subtly paint her competitor, bernie sanders as not a movement but a little protest outlet. >> do you think bernie sanders has helped her? >> you know, i think so far in
8:06 am
beat her, he has helped her in the fact that he gave her someone to sharpen herself against as she ran. but he also forced her to at least begin coming up with a meaning of her campaign. that meaning is, i think, if i'm reading it right, i believe in progress that is possible. i believe in politics as the art of the possible. that seems to me what she's saying. in other words, she's saying my promises, i can actually deliver pep can't deliver anything he's making all these things up. >> all right, peggy. >> it may very well depend on how many new voters he can bring into the race. >> that is exciting, even as it is on the trump side. new voters are i abig part of this year. >> thank you. it's still very early in this race. thank you, peggy noonan. always good to see you. pop star kesha, you know her, she's getting support from some of the biggest names in music. a judge ruled she cannot leave her recording contract. now, the pop star claims her producer who goes by the name of
8:07 am
he denies the allegations and has not been criminally charged. a number of female musicians are supporting kesha, including taylor swift who donated $250,000 to help her financially. eli elaine quijano has this. >> reporter: kesh says she wanted to keep making hits but not with her current producer. she filed a case against dr. luke claiming he sexually, physically and emotional abuse her for a decade. her career on hold, kesha wants to be rouxeleased from her contract with dr. luke and sony entertainment.
8:08 am
in tears. >> absent a criminal complaint, medical records, a police report or any other evidence to support kesha's claims she could not rule this contract should be set aside or terminates. >> reporter: both kesha's attorney and sony declined to comment but in a statement, dr. luke's attorney said, the goal of kesha's counsel has been to obtain a more lucrative contract through a shameless campaign of outrageous claims. >> free kesha now! >> reporter: outside the courthouse, supporters voice their anger at the decision. >> inhumane. everything about this trial is sickening, disgusting. >> if sony is to have any integrity, should not be trying to make money off of a person and insulting them. >> reporter: female musicians are showing support, singer demi lovato tweeting frustrating seeing women come out with their past only to be shot down.
8:09 am
your bravery. kesha could still be let out of her contract once her full case is heard. for "cbs this morning," elaine quijano. >> there has to be a better solution to this. >> she's raising a lot of interesting questions. he was 14 when he got a shot out from the president for his math skills. teenager is part of a very small club. ahead, chip reid introduces us

8:15 am
school. calculus may be confusing for many people but we met two students who not only concustomered it but pulled off an achievement that stumped college professors. in fairfax, virginia, chip reid is adding up the success. >> reporter: when i walked into this classroom this morning, i thought i was walking into a language class, because that is greek to me. but you're about to meet a couple of high school students who know all of that and exactly what it means and a lot more. landon may seem like an ordinary 15-year-old. in many ways, he is. but he also knows what it's like, at least in math, to achieve perfection. the more than 300,000 students around the world who took the advanced placement calculus test last year he is one of only 12 who achieved a perfect score and most of the test takers were
8:16 am
he was a 14-year-old sophomore. what does it feel like to have been perfect on this test? >> honestly, it's a little overwhelming. it's lots of interviews like this. >> reporter: and the tweet from the president? >> that was pretty cool. >> reporter: pretty cool? that is an understatement, right? >> yeah. >> reporter: his perfect score placed him in the top.004%. that means 1 in what? >> 25,000? >> reporter: i got 2,500. >> that would be -- it's .004%. >> oh, very good! he beat me at math. beating a tv news reporter at math is no big deal but landon's parents say perfection is a big deal for him. mom and dad, were you surprised he got a perfect score? >> i was surprised. >> reporter: not because you
8:17 am
>> no, no. >> reporter: you thought else make a silly mistake? >> i did. that is just natural. >> reporter: even college professors who write the exams make mistakes. >> the professors don't expect this and it's remarkable when a high school student who doesn't have a college degree let alone a h.ph.d. in this subject area does not miss a point. >> reporter: landon credits his calculus teacher ann watkins. >> reporter: can calculus be intuitive? >> absolutely. >> reporter: you come to calculus to push the limits? >> absolutely. one of my t-shirts say calculus students know their limits. >> reporter: that is something cedric understands as well, a 17-year-old senior in lincoln high school in los angeles, he, too, is one of the 12 students with a perfect score on the calculus exam. >> i like to absolutely -- math there is always an answer. but i know that there is not
8:18 am
sometimes there are unsolved problems and just the unknown out there that makes me want to, you know, solve it. >> reporter: cedric's record with rubik cube is 15 seconds and he has a near obsession with avoiding careless errors in math. >> i don't like make is mistakes, i don't. >> reporter: cedric's mother is a nurse foreign in the philippines and his mother is a maintenance worker originally from el salvador. >> this country offers a lot of good things to the immigrants, like us. so i'm just thankful. >> i didn't have the opportunity to -- we are here to help him do whatever he wants. >> reporter: aside from the perfect score, that is another big thing cedric and landon have in common -- parents who encourage their children to do their best. >> the problem with somebody
8:19 am
getting better, so it's hard to know when he has done his best. >> reporter: as you can see, i've been using the time productively to sharpen my math skills and not sure about the last one. the number of today is 12. the number who had a perfect score on this exam. by the way, both landon and cedric want to be engineers. landon wants to possibly send a rocket to mars and cedric wants to design something that is so cool that his name will be known around the world. >> believe! i believe that is going to happen! >> i believe. >> that's right. >> i love both parents, too. the pride that both parents felt about their sons. >> yeah. >> really good to see. >> that is the american story. >> that's right. >> immigrants come here and their kids take a real place. >> succeed. don't we line it? the best just keep getting better. there is a high altitude

8:30 am
we will explore apple's fight with the fbi. >> american girl is getting ready to release, the first look at the dole months before it goes on sale. that story is ahead. time to show you some of the morning's headlines from around the globe. the "los angeles times" reports on a damming study out today that says hollywood is still largely whitewashed. researchers at unc gave a failing grade to major media companies which when it came to including women and minorities from ceos down to minor character. the report found the film industry, quote, still functions as a straight white boys club. the "new york post" reports that author harper lee kept an apartment in manhattan. her "to kill a mockingbird" was set in the south and claimed alabama was her home.
8:31 am
remembers her as hospitalible and she made them promise not to reveal details about her life. harper was laid to rest over the weekend. "the new york times" says a vaccine, since the government started recommending the hpv vaccine, the number of girls with the disease has fallen 64%. hpv has dropped 34% in women aged 20 to 24. the vaccine is more effective than anyone anticipated. the new orleans times is reporting anthony davis scored 59 points with 20 rebounds. the only player to report that
8:32 am
that is huge. >> 59 is a lot of points in the nba. he has prelreal promising potential. tension is on display in the fbi's standoff with apple over the san bernardino terrorist iphone. a powerful intelligence insider is weighing in. retired general major michael hayden says apple is right in principle, but the government has a point. hayden created and oversaw programs designed to keep americans safe. he is director of the national security agency and director of the cia in the past and he is now telling his side of the story in a new book called "playing to the edge american intelligence in the age of terror." general hayden, good morning. >> good morning. >> let's look at the fbi story and make sure we understand exactly what you think. you have on the one hand, the fbi says we ought to be able to look at this. we need you to help us do it and only asking you to do it one time. >> right.
8:33 am
>> apple says no such thing as one time. it means we are opening up privacy and violating the privacy of those people who buy iphones. what do you say. >> this is a morality play for the theme of the book which i describe is tough choices and not about the forces of light and the force of darkness. this is about balancing two virt things we want, liberty and safety and acting out in this particular sphere. i think apple is right in terms of opposing universal back doors to make it easier for any government to get into encrypted communications. >> but is that what the government is asking them? >> no. but i am not convinced that what the fbi is asking apple to do in san bernardino is that. and i think the burden of proof is on apple to show that there is an inevitable slippery slope from this very targeted focused
8:34 am
slippery slope from that to this thing over here. charlie, look. as you said, i ran nsa. back doors are back doors. if they are in there, good security services around the world will exploit that and take advantage of that. >> government too? >> the government actually wish us no good. >> you also say in the book when it comes to national security and protecting our privacy and our lives, sometimes you have to go right to the edge and do whatever it takes. >> that's right. >> is it a bit of a contradiction to say, well, i don't totally oppose i agree with a back door? do you know what i'm saying? >> gayle, i get it and this is a perpetual gray area and never easy choices but there are lines. i say playing to the edge and you should not go beyond a certain point. in my judgment, in this particular case is that universal back doors, although it may facilitate american law enforcement for very good purposes, on balance, on
8:35 am
negative for american security, not just american privacy. >> why would law enforcement or intelligence agencies need the iphone exactly? in other words, you can go through the cloud. they have already checked his phone records, know who he has spoken with and pretty much cleaned a lot of material doing all of that. >> they have. and that is one of the arguments folks like me use for no universal back doors. there are other tools available. but, norah, in this particular case, it wasn't backed up to the cloud. and -- >> for the past 44 days before the attack? >> right. and you can't get it to talk to the cloud without getting into it and changing its cloud code. and so you're back to apple needs to suppress the current ios which will destroy the data if you have unsuccessful attempt to open it. >> can you clear something up for me? it's interesting to me to watch on saturday the fbi put out a
8:36 am
cook e-mailing. a public relations war going on between the two of them. isn't it true in the past apple has been cooperative and worked with the cia in the past? >> i won't get into operational details and apple has made it quite public they have been cooperative with american law enforcement with cases like this one but now apple is drawing this line. >> ios 7 or ios 8? >> i wouldn't get into the specifics. that is one of the detailed arguments that tilts this one way or the other. >> interesting thing is district attorney of new york has said he has got about 170 cases in which he can't gain access to an iphone and he needs that evidence in terms of dangerous criminals. >> no. frankly, charlie, i think the u.s. attorney here making that case undercuts jim comey's argument that i got one off that i need your help.
8:37 am
>> please! >> here you are, the master secret keeper. for years you keep all of the secrets and now you're writing a book about the secrets. i'm curious will the process for you and was it difficult for you to do? did you struggle with it? >> first of all, i've been doing this for a while. >> yes. >> i kind of know my own limits. >> got it. >> so i write to what i think the edge is in terms of classification. but everything then has to be cleared and, in this case, by cia, and nsa and the director of national intelligence. and, frankly, gayle, in the conversations, i pretty much got to say everything i wanted to say, even if not in all cases i got to say it the way i wanted to say it. >> what was your process? >> i picked a topic. let's take the syrian nuclear reactor. >> let's take that. >> long airplane rides with my ipad and kind of put out about 2,500, 3,000 words stream of consciousness and realized a lot of i don't remember.
8:38 am
documents. ask to talk to people. meet with them. enrich the basic outline that i have. now i'm about 80%, 85% of the way i need to be on that particular chapter. >> can i ask you about the current presidential debate? i know you know bob gates well, the former secretary of defense. he has essentially said it would be -- it's embarrassing the level of dialogue that is going on. when a candidate says they want to carpet bomb isis into oblivion, would that be possible? >> no and it would be unmoral and unworthy of a republic like ourselves. secretary gates is absolutely right. remember, i began by saying these are hard issues and an infinin gray. >> donald trump said he would waterboard. >> he said he would waterboard and a lot worse because they deserved it.
8:39 am
this was trying to keep americans safe looking forward. people can argue what we did but it was never a form of punishment. >> do drones raise any morality question for you? >> obviously, i was intimately involved in targeted killings and in detail in the book and always raises moral questions. when the phone would ring in the middle of the night, charlie, i mean this, before i would pick it up, i said to myself, hayden, listen up. whatever you are going to decide on this call, you're going to live with the rest of your lirve. >> i've been told by cia directors there have been moments they identify where they would get by a drone a leading terrorist and they have decided not to because they knew the family was too close. >> well, you make these value judgments all the time. the laws of war, necessity proportionality and distinction and it goes through your mind. i tell a story in the book with the united states, where they
8:40 am
be al qaeda even though his grandson was nearby. we contributed to the intelligence to that shot. >> you had to make the decision. >> the united states had to make the decision do you take it or not? we tried to avoid the civilian loss of life. >> but the grandson was killed in that scenario? . you had you can live with that? >> i can but without cavalier, i have grandchildren. when you're director of these kinds of agencies, you still have your personal moral self but you're acting on behalf of the nation and you have to realize it's a failure to make a tough decision. the failure to take that kind of shot could actually lead to something catastrophic. >> general hayden, thank you. the book is called "playing to the edge" and goes on sale tomorrow. only on "cbs this morning," inside the designed studios at the american girl headquarters,
