you'd expect us to have a highly skilled call center. kevin, neill holley's on line one. ok, great. and we do. it's how edward jones makes sense of investing. 0 here's your "first look" at this morning's scrambled politics. this friday president obama will travel to the va hospital in phoenix. last year the hospital was at the center of a national controversy after reports of several veterans dying while waiting for clear. john mccain tweeted glad president obama will visit phoenix va one year after scandal. much work to be done. after talking student loans at georgia tech yesterday president obama cooled down by shooting some hoops back stage. white house photographer captured this jumper from the three-point line.
he's got some game. "daily show" host jon stewart is talking politics in the april edition of "gq" magazine and when asked about former president bill clinton he said if he runs tomorrow he would win by a landslide. he said bill would beat his wife hillary. and no word who will replace jon stewart on the "daily show." most americans would like to see tina fey in the anchor chair. dennis miller is second followed by john oliver greg ferguson brian williams and chelsea handler. >> you get it faster. everybody gets it faster. >> is that the first lady's best oprah impersonation. she posted that video yesterday calling on students to sends in videos about how their school is filling out their free application for free student
aid. the winning school will get a special visit from mrs. obama at graduation. that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. coming up on 22 minutes past the hour let's bring in jonathan allen. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. >> you wrote a book about hillary clinton. you apparently know a little bit about her. she didn't reveal any bomb shells yesterday. so why did she even hold this press conference a lot sooner? >> there was one really unexpected piece of news there which is she deleted some of her personal e-mail. that's not something that had been disclosed before. she held the press conference mostly because there were people in her own party beginning to question her judgment on this that were beginning to question whether this would damage her campaign. she's obviously not announced yet but also running. but i think that's what she was trying to do was quell the up roar from democrats. she knows she won't win with the
republicans. when democrats started to erode i think she felt she needed to put that back together. she probably handled that with yesterday's press conference. >> crypts naturally had their view on the press conference but you've studied her and done some research. did she come off very presidential during this press conference? >> you know i think yes in a way. that presidents have a tendency to look annoyed when being asked questions by the media that they don't think are legitimate. she came off presidential in that way. it's hard certainly in the middle of a scandal to look your best as a presidential candidate, you know scandal. there's no real smoking gun here. nobody knows of any bad e-mail or any misuse or abuse. i think, you know the question is the extent to which voters care whether there's one set of rules for hillary clinton and another set for everybody else. but i'm not sure the average
voter cares what was in the e-mail. >> she started off the press conference by bringing up the 47 republicans and the letter to the iran. the gop letter may have been a bad idea. some say it might have broken through. what do you think about it? >> the law they are referring to is the logan act which says private citizens shouldn't talk to foreign countries directly. nobody has been prosecuted under the logan act and certainly united states states senators won't be. >> thanks so much. just ahead the dangers of golfing in florida. plus it's really really serious. we're talking zoolander crashes paris fashion week to make a huge announcement. floor mats... clear coats... >>you're getting warmer... leather seats... >>and this... my wife bought me that. get your credit swagger on.

"way too early" starts now. >> as i understand it hillary clinton was using her private e-mail address. predictably the republicans are angry about her using her private e-mail address. they were screaming and yelling and hollering today and then they went back writing their open letter to iran. i think we have the actual letter that the senators are writing. there it is. can we get in as tight as you can the final paragraph. leapt me see what they are talking about. you must send this to five other rogue states in the next 24 hours or have bad luck for a year. >> did you see this front page.
>> it's wednesday, march 11th. welcome to "way too early." >> she's all over the news. >> hillary clinton is facing even more questions this morning after breaking her silence about her use of a private e-mail account while serving as secretary of state. >> the united nations served as a backdrop yesterday for clinton's attempt to end the controversy ahead of her likely bid for the white house in 2016. as for the main question of why she only used mother-in-law e-mail account she says it was for convenience. >> when i got to work as secretary of state i opted for convenience to use my personal e-mail account which was allowed by the state department because i thought it would be's easier to carry just one account. looking back it would have been better if i simply use ad second e-mail account and carried a second phone but
