's presidents' day, mondada morning. carson dayly is in for matt.. we h he a lot to talk about. >> we do. >> so much has changed with the dedeh of justice scalia. the flala outside the supreme court at half-staff this mornini after this weekend's sudden and unexpected death of justice sant antonin scalia. replacing him, o ocourse, will tilt the balance of the supreme court. that has ignited a new election year battle, and an epic one. we have t teports for you this morning. we'll also talk a aut all of this with republican presidential h heful jebeb bush live in a moment.
who is at the court this morning. goodod morning to you. >> savannah, goodmorning. it's beenore than 50 years since the suprememeourt was in this sition, facing the busiest part of the term without all nine justices. that cast a big shadow of uncertainty as the court prepares to take upome of the most controversialal cases. >> reporter: draped in an american flag, the body of antonin scalia arrived in virginia late sunday night. the death from an apparent heart attack was a month shy of his 80th birthday at this west texas guest nch. he was in the company of friends before dying in his sleep in his room. >> found himself in a very congenial group. he was surrounded by admirerers of him and his work. >> reporter: the o oer reagan appointee said scalia will be remembered for his brilliance. the supreme court split, five
with eight justices, it raises the possibility of a 4-4 tie. a tie leaves the lower court ruling in tact, a victory for whoever won in the lower court. among the big cases this term, a tie wouou maintain tough new texas restrictions on abortion. possibly encouraging other states to pass similar laws. a 4-4 vote would leave the legal ld in place on president obama's plan to let 5 million undocumentnt migrants stay it. it would head off a a effort to weaken unions representing public employees, including teachers. if president obamamaut scalia's successor on the court, it would mean a liberal majority. >> it's never been so clear that the balance of power ied ideologically is affected. >> reporter: two on the washington, d.c. court, and a judge in california.
arrangements for justice scalia. if the family wishes, he could lie in repose in the great hall of the supreme court building, just inside the bronze doors at the top of the steps. an honor last given to william renquist. justice scalia's death has set off a political battle. peter alexander has that part of the story. good morning. >> good morning to you. the court vacancy is reframingg e 2016 campaign. this is now the rarest of presidential electitis. one where control of the white house, congress and now the supreme court are allll in play. in a momomt of silence for justice scalia. >> reporter: the moment of silence forustice scalia lasted a moment before the political pile-on began. >> we ought to make the 2016 election a referenenm on the supreme court. >> i think the real plan for it would be somebody just like justice scalia.
upping the ante in an already fierce battle for thehe white house. >> there is no way the senate should confirm someone that barack obama triri to appoint in his last year in office. >> reporter: senate majority leader mitchchcconnell arguing it shoululnot be filled until we have a new president. with 11 months left in his term, president obama insists he will nominate a new justice and expects the senate to consider his choice fairly. >> these are responsibilities i take seriously, ashould everyone. they're bigger than any one party. they are about our democracy. >> reporter: if the president sees the third justice, that could give the court its first liberal majority in 40 years. ted cruz who once was a law clerk vowed to block any obama nominee. >> we're addviseingeing a lame duck couldn't tip the court. >> reporter: this ad highlightss
>> marriage, civiv berty, we're one suprememeourt justice away from losing them all. >> reporter: fiery feuds in the republican field. >> they lie. >> liar, liar, liar. >> reporter: saturday night's debate, the most combative so far. highlighteddn thihi exchange between donald trump and jeb bush. >> obviously, the war in iraq was a big, fat mistake. it took jeb bush, if you remember, at the beginning of his announcement, whenn he announced for president, took him five days, he went back. it wasn't a mistake. wasn't a mistake. took him five days before his people told him what to say. >> on this esidents' y, former president george w. bush will campaign alongside his brother here for the first time. ter that dispute with donald trump this weekend, jeb bush said that trump is no longer invited. in ct, the two men didn't even shakak hands after the debate. savannah? >> peter alexander, thank you s s much. republican presidential peful g gernor jeb bush is
od to see you. >> good morning, savannah. >> i want to make sure i understandndour position on this. senator mcconnene of the rereblican leadership suggestst a nominee put forward by president obama would not get a vote.. that it wouldn't come up in the senate. me of yourrivals, namely, ted cruz and marco rubio, seem to support that approach. whwhe do you come down on it? do you think a nominee of the president should come for an up or down vote in the senate this year? >> it's up to mitch mcconnell in the senate. i'm not a senate and not running for the united states senate. if he's going to take that path, i respect that. what shouldn't happen is in an election year, a president in a very divisive kind of time, should nominate someone and have it be passed.d. there shouldn'tte deference to the executive, i i my point. >> is that a cope out, saying it's up to senator mcconnellll shouldn't you take a position? >> i am taking a position.
it should d r rected based on the history of how president obama selelts judges. too. what i'm sayayg is there shouldn't be an obama -- justice shouldldt be appointed in an election year. let it be an important parttf the election process. there's a lotiding on this. the second amendment, religiousus freedom and other causes important for this country will be determined by this pick. >> for those saying that there shouldn't be an up or down vote, andd understand yououe not necessarily one of them, are they on weak constitutional ground? in other words, you said the other night, you're an article ii guy. it makes clear the president nominates, is senate advices and consents. it doesn't say, except in an election year. >> t t president has the right to nominate.. that w w my point in the debate. the senate has the right to carry out the rules. my point is, irrespective of that, there should not be an appointment based on the record of president obama's selection
they're way out of the mainstream. this should be an important point thatte have in the election. i'm more than happy to litigate that. even though i'm not alawyer, i'm happy to litigige the constitutionality offfs case. >> let me talk about your campaign. president bushsh george w. bush, will be on the trail with you this morning. he's made a point to stay o o of the political race since he stepped out of office. s it a hard decision to make? >> this will be the first time he's gotten involved, andnd i respect the fact that he has been out of the political fray. it's a good tradition. like president clinton, i guess, supporting his spouse, and,d, you know, he wants to help his brother. i don't have a problem with that all. i'm proud of his rvice. i'm proudf my family's service. i'm running for president based on my own merits but the fact he's supporting me will add to the primary in south carolina,
>> you say you're your own man, but donald trump said it was your brother who, according to trump, lied about weapons o o mass destruction. he said 9/11 happened on your brother's watctc s s d dn't keep us safe. and he added there was an economic collapse at the end of the administration that led to the electioio of barack obama. i guess the question is, by having your brothererut on the trail, does this kind of invite that relit-litigation of the past? >> it's interesting that donald trump praises putin and a aacks my brother. i think in a s sth carolina primary, that's probably the wrong placece to be. >> did y yr brother give you any advice for dealing with someone like donald trump? >> i don't think myrother ever had any experience with dealing with a person like donald trump. he's a bully and you have to stand up. i'm the only guy standing up against him. he's hijacking theonservative cause by running as a rereblblan. there's nothing in his past that wowod suggest he is a republican. i think it's important to stand up to him.
civility, but you cannot allow a bully to take over thisparty. >> governor jeb bush, we'll be watching today. thank you for your time this morning. appreciate it. >> you bet. on the democratic side, hillary clinton and bernie sanderssay the president has the right and responsibility to nominate a new justice. this as the battle between them tightens in nevada. kristen welker, good morning. >> carson, good morning to you. secretary clinton was initially planning toampaign innn florida totoy, but now she's added an extra day of camamigning here inn nevada. feeling the pressure from a surging berniesanders. she knows in order to win these larger, moree diverse states, she needs latinos and african-americans to turnn out in big numbers. >> reportete today, with the dedecratic race tightening, hillary clinton and b bnie sasasas are turning their attention to nevada. >>eople come out in large numbmbs on caucus day, we're

to make friends. so how cherished a singular male frieie should be. women, for some reason, and it cocod be oxytocin, make friends morere easily than men, i iseems to eme. >> you write in the book that you didn't initially hit it off as personal friends. >> well, there's -- life is never perfrft. no, we had some disagreements to begin withth and in the end. brotherhood. i loved it. > i thought therereas an irony. you write that a a first, the star trek conventions, allhat that happened after the show, you both were kind of like not sure you wanted to be a part of alllthat. but it was throughghoing those appearancesshat you really boboed. not as much during the show, but afafr, that you became close.
so many shows, i notice for example, you had "friends"s"n earlier earlier, that's extraordinary,y, for people to remain friends after the shoho has been -- is over. usually, you're t t best friends forever while a show is on, whatever the show , and then when the show is over, stage, film, seriri, you say, i'll see you tomorrow, and you don't because life takes you apart. in many cases, you never see each other again. in this case, fatat threw us together with all these appearances. and the films we did. we became very close. >> you were v vy different, weren't you? >> well, they say yourr cells change every seven years, so that's a lot of changing going on. >> you were honest in the book because toward the end of his life, you write thattou two hadad a falalng out. you're very honest about it. you say in a certain nse, you're still not really sure

that's really the reason for the book. >> you miss m? >> yes. >> 50 years since star trek, can you believeve it? >> incredible. >> this is the anniversary. will it be hard to go through the year and people remembering without your friend? >yes. how beautiful it would have been. we had the beses time on stage with each other. communicated more on stage, at times, than we did in person. >> william shatner, good to have you here. thank you so much. >> glad to be here. >> theook is called "leonard." up next, is your e-mail inbox out of control? the guiui to cleaning up your digital clutter.
