>> here in the u.s. high-speed rail has had a difficult time catching on. the white house unveiled its vision for new train corridors in 2009 but so far there has been very little progress. jeff pegues is in washington with how that can be or could be about to change. jeff good morning. >> reporter: good morning. top speed on amtrak's station leave at about 150 miles per hour but there are high-speed rail projects planned across the country with trains going 50 miles an hour faster than that. the developers behind those projects really believe the idea of high-speed rail in this country has finally turned the corner. this bullet train is as fast as it looks. in japan it covered 320 miles in just two hours and 25 minutes traveling at close to 190 miles per hour. high-speed rail in this country is also gaining ground.
within six years texas developers are promising a link between dallas/ft.-ft. worth and houston at 205 miles per hour. and in california another project will bring a 200-mile-per-hour system traveling between places like san francisco and los angeles by 2028. richard lawless is with texas central railway, believes the payoff is down the road. >> once the system is up and operating, people will appreciate its efficiency its safety, and its dependability, and that's what we have to do here. we have to demonstrate that this system can work in the united states. >> we're going to have 50 million people in california. >> dan richard is director of the high-speed rail authority. >> here in california we have three of the five busiest amtrak routes already and we know there's a tremendous need for ridership. >> reporter: between 2009 and
2010 alone there were three failed projects in florida, wisconsin, and ohio when funding for those projects were cut. >> that's an example of one that has turned into a real boon dog. >> reporter: this congressman sayed the $68 billion price tagg is a waste of money. >> there aren't enough ridership numbers to be able to balance the project and there also aren't private investors willing to invest in it. there won't be a profit if you don't have ridership. >> reporter: it's being funded in texas privately but they too, face a grohling opposition that could stop it in its tracks. it could require elected officials in every city in every county to approve the project. >> it's not feasible it's not reasonable, and it's not necessary. >> reporter: she owns land near houston that's been in her family for more than 130 years. the high-speed rail line could
force them to move. >> anyone in the united states or perhaps the world looks at the state of texas and they see cow, cowboy boots, horses, and people that farm and ranch. if they were to try to take texas railway right through this property they're going to destroy the very thing that makes texas the great state it is. >> reporter: they say they're trying to minimize the impact on community but it's the traffic in california that is really fueling that project out there. high-speed rail is really seen as a solution to the state's growing transportation needs. norah. >> okay, thanks. i know we think it's long past due. >> yeah. it seems a long way off, but i'm glad they're talking about it. >> agreed. coming up real-life royalty pays a visit to "downton abbey."

teams. he put up a life-size cutout of the coaches and a cut out of john calipari up front. that's pretty funny. >> it is funny. this morning president obama faces the final two years in his office without his close aide. senior white house adviser dan pfeiffer departed the white house last week. he went on to become white house communications director. we spoke with mr. fifer about what it is like working for the president. >> so tell me about the man you met then when you were applying for a job and the man you said good-bye to. >> at his core, he is the same man to me. now, there's evidence that we've all aged a lot in that period of time. >> grey hair. >> i looked at photos of myself from 2007. one, i can't believe how much i've ainched and, two, they
hired a child. >> he's battle-hardened. >> he's had to battal lot but the same genuine core. the same goodness. >> this guy has a certain peace of mind about decision-making. >> yeah. >> you receive that since you rode around in car with him. >> right. he's very sort of deliberative and calm at the point of decision and very rarely spending time second-guessing. he learns lessons from it. he lets the chips fall where they may. >> the president is cool and business-like. is that simply what ought to be recognized as his style and don't expect him to be something he's not? >> i think he is who he is. he is a person who adores people. if you see him campaign you see
that. he adores -- >> voters. >> voters the public interesting people that he gets a chance to meet with. he is not a transactional human being. he's business-like, he's smart, but he also doesn't need the admiration of other people to get up in the morning. >> what's it like different inside than outside? what do you see and know that we don't see? >> what's different about it is how -- you know sort of the amount of thought the president puts into things and how he wrestles with some really hard decisions. sometimes you'll be in a room and you actually don't know what his position is because he is arguing the other side for the purpose of -- this is the law professor in him to test out the opposite argument to see how strong it is. it's fascinating to watch his mind work as you see him work around the problem from all
different sides. >> here's a guy that was viewed as someone with a gift for language and speaking and kmun kmooun communicating. has he not been able to take the american people with the narrative they've under and responded to? >> i think in in the first two years i think we've all stepped back, you know and looked at it and realize thad the trees overwhelm the forest. we're doing health care. doing -- saving the auto industry saving the stimulus. each one of those things they're their own thing. i think on the issue the president cares about, public opinion is moved significantly in his direction over the course of our time in the white house, whether it's on core economic policies. >> same-sex marriage? >> same-sex marriage immigration reform. he's moved the country in that
if he could continue it toward the next we'll set the four corners did like president ronal reagan did at the end of the '80s. >> people feel they have an remarkable opportunity and they're there to give everything they've got. >> that is perhaps the think i'll miss the most is the camaraderie camaraderie. you're in the ship toke and it is a group of brilliant people. you know i'm 39 and i've probably had the best job i ever have had. sometimes i wake up earlier than i should and it's hard to believe it all happened. seems impossible to imagine. >> you don't expect him to say anything negative about the president but you do expect him to say things that are observational and when he says he's more like a law brother fesser, not transactional. that's what some of the critics point out, even lee on pea in
ta. >> i think he has great observations. what are his next plans? >> i don't know. he's taking a trip to asia and wants to read books. >> he has excellent taste in women. he's smart, and so is she. this morning faith combined with a gym experience. uel bow hor ka is following. >> she's following the church of god all the way to the gym since her workout is at her place of worship but the thought of going to any gym was daunting. >> when you're overweight, you feel like you shouldn't take up space. at any other gym, people aren't going to understand that god is
allowing me to take up space, so i will feel more judged there. >> there's a comfort level here. >> huge. >> toby gram graham who is also a cher. member is her trainer. >> i think people are starting to understand there's a really powerful connection between spiritual wellness and physical wellness. r and while a higher purpose may encourage a healthy lifestyle, it may also go the other way. one study from northwestern university found young adults who frequently attended church activities were 50% more likely to become obese in middle age than those who did not. throughout texas and other organizations will encouraging members to work out. charges members a nominal fee, as low as 10 bucks a month. there's even magazine. faith and fitness. brad bloom is the publisher.
>> these days people don't want to go where they go sing a song put money on a plate and go back to life. they want something that's going to be every day experience with their faith and this does that. >> reporter: at christ united methodist church in plano, texas, it's a way to reach new members and keep current ones engaged. >> if i go to a gym by myself, i'm not held accountable. these guys make sure i'm here as much as i can be. >> try to make the movement come from the hip. >> reporter: it was that kind of support from graham that changed again dwen kelly's life. in the past year she's lost 50 pounds. >> she never made me feel interior. there were times when i wanted to give up you know she'd be like you know you've got this, got's got this. you're doing it for him. >> and she plans to keep doing it faithfully. for "cbs this morning," manuel
>> that's the other problem. don't you dare laugh. >> kind of hard not to laugh with that dress. she may wish she paid a lot less for that wedding dress. couples spend a lot to make sure their day is big perfection. >> they're out with a real wedding story. the average cost is $31,000, that's up 4% from 2013. rebecca dolgin is editor in chief. good morning. >> good morning. the most expensive is the venue, i understand it's around $14,000. >> that's right. >> any way to reduce that cost? >> yes. a couple oi ways. you can go off-season. say june you can look in april or may or you have probably
noticed a lot of friday night weddings, a lot of sunday night weddings. that's another great way to save. either one of those two things can save you on the venue. >> new york is the most expensive, utah is the least expensive. >> that's right. >> how can? >> utah is a dry state, so that accounts for some of it. but new york everything is just more expensive. i think except for manicures. 's the only thing that's less. but you have more venues you have more people willing to spend a lot of money on these venues too. even the talent behind it. so if you're at the four seasons or have sylvia ya wine stock making your cake it's going to be more expensive. >> other than venue and the thing you just talked about, what are some of the other big ticket items? >> flowers are significant. menu is the second biggest thing. venue and menu and then band is a really big one. photographers is right behind bands. >> are you noticing people are
having bigger weddings now? isn't the guest list always a nightmare for couples? >> it is. it's the most significant way to save, to cut the guest list. interestingly over time we've seen the guest list has gone down and wedding spending has gone up. people want their wedding guests to have this amazing experience so they're inviting few ore f them but really going all out with them and really personalizing themes. they're having specific bands, amazing photo booths bringing in palm readers and poets. >> palm readers at weddings. >> yes. >> technology is playing a role your survey says. >> yes. even in the past three years mobile has doubled. >> what does that mean? >> basically it means that people are planning they're booking their weddings contacting their vendors right on their mobile phone. they could be watching tv
looking at wedding dresses. >> outdoor or inside? >> outdoor weekends are big. it's about 25% outdoor weddings. you receive a lot more rustic weddings lately and that goes with the outdoor and vineyard theme. >> what about the tradition of the bride or groom's family paying for the wedding? >> that's a good question. it's change add little bit. they're pay 4g 3% and the bride's parents pay about 43% and the groom's parents pay about 12%. >> the rehearsal dinner? >> typically the groom. >> october is a big month. >> yes. october is really like the big one now. it's always traditionally june and now october is right up there. >> gayle and i were june brides. we were june brides. >> she's still a bride. >> all right. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> wheel be right back.
