7:02 am
snow falling at rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour. it becomes windy. with the heavy, wet snow, we could be looking at power outages. around noon from portland, boston, warwick, new york city on the western edge of the system. into the afternoon hours -- it's a quick mover -- it pushes its way off. as far as accumulations, heavy along eastern maine. into eastern massachusetts. boston, you could be looking at upwards of 6 to 9 inches of snow. providence, rhode island, 6 to 9. 5 to 8 in iceland. new york city, 3 to 5 inches. the good news is it's a quick mover. it'll get out of here fast. we are watching something that comes in early next week, which may have an impact along the east coast, as well. >> thank you, al. appreciate it. let's talk politics. the presidential race. hillary clinton and bernie
7:03 am
contentious debate yet. clinton accusing sanders of running a sneer against her. let's start with the debate. andrea mitchell was there. good morning. >> good morning, savannah. with only four days to go until new hampshire votes, and on the democratic side, bernie sanders leading hillary clinton h he by 20 points, the two rivals faced off in the heated debate. the stakes high for both sides. >> let's talk about the issues. let's talk about the issues that divide us. >> reporter: clinton and sanders in their most combatable deive debate. >> secretary clinton represents the establishment. i represent, i hope, ordinary americans. >> reporter: the debate exploded in a fiery clash over her ties to wall street. hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees. and his demands for campaign finance reform. >> enough is enough. if you've got something to say, say it directly.
7:04 am
very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent weeks. let's talk about the issues. >> what we need to do is to stand up to the big money interests and the campaign contributors. >> reporter: under scrutiny for paid speeches to goldman sachs and other groups, clinton ducked the question about whether she'd make the transcripts public. >> will you release all of them? >> i d d't know the status but i'll look into it. >> reporter: they fought over who is a real liberal. >> you can't be a moderate, you can be the be can't be a progressive. >> youcherry picking statements don't change my record. >> reporter: sanders talking about how he could lead the democratic party if elected. >> i am running for president and am a democrat.
7:05 am
democratic party. >> reporter: clinton was pressed over the controversy surrounding her e-mails. >> the american people will know it's an absurtity. >> i have 22 and you have 25 and we need 2,500 to win the delegation. this is not the biggest deaea in the world. >> in new hampshire, sanders is leading hillary clinton among women, and especially a huge lead among younger women. today, she is campaigning with women governors and senators. but she has not figured out yet how to inspire the younger women who are flocking to bernie sanders. matt and sanvannah? >> ander mitchell, thank you. the republicans face off in their own debate tomorrow night. we have a new poll on that race. marco rubio in second, closing in on donald trump.
7:06 am
the story covered. good morning. >> good morning, matt. as marco rubio moves up, it's ted cruz slipping to third. today, even if he looks ahead to tuesday's primary, he's dealing with fallout from earlier in the week at the iowa caucuses. >> reporter: this morning, ted cruz is playing defense. dogged by claims of dirty politics, as these voicemails were published. >> this is the cruz campaign with breaking news. dr. ben carson will be ready to suspect his campaign following the iowa caucuses. >> reporter: the calls allegedly made by the cruz campaign, implying ben carson was dropping out. nbc news hasn't verified the calls but similar ones were made. >> please inform any carson caucus goers of this news and urge for them to caucus for cruz. >> reporter: cruz said his staff
7:07 am
carson sonson was headed home after the iowa caucuses. >> i know people were trying to construe things. when you win in the state of iowa, your opponents want to tear you down. >> reporter: opponents like donald trump, laughing off what cruz calls his trumper tantrum. >> that'll good. i'll trademark it. >> reporter: looking ahead to new hampshire. >> my life is about winning. >> reporter: trump atop our new poll with marco rubio rising in the state. >> we've been working hard and feel good about the progress we've made in iowa and now. i know this about politics, when everyone is attacking, you must be doing something right. >> reporter: facing fire from establishment candidates like jeb bush. >> my crowd sizes aren't normally this big. i wonder why. >> reporter: he's getting support from mother barbara for thecandidacy. >> he's decent and honest, everything we need in a president.
7:08 am
>> think he's going to win? >> you're darn right. >> reporter: bush's brother working to make it happen. >> i know jeb, i know his heart. >> reporter: george w. bush appearing in his first ad to air in south carolina. >> jeb bush is a leader who will keep our country safe. >> reporter: >> for bush, the race to the white house is becoming a family affair. >> the republican field is getting ready for tomorrow's debate. carly fiorina will not be included on stage. she's not polling well enough, according to the criteria, to be included. she's not happy about it, matt. she's even getting backup on that from some of her rivals. a surprising source, ted cruz and ben carson backing her up. >> hallie jackson on the story, thank you. let's turn to chuck todd and rachel maddow. congrats on the debate and i
7:09 am
of sleep you got last night. >> absolutely. >> with the debate, we saw a hillary clinton who was very aggressive in tone. do you think, chuck, she did anything to change the dynamic of this race, either in new hampshire or in this larger battle for the nomination? >> well, i think that's what she was looking at, was the larger battle. the clinton campaign doesn't believe they're going to win here in new hampshire. but they're trying to sort of set the terms of the debate, put senator sanders on his heels a little bit. it was clear, they had a plan and she was pretty aggressive at him. >> rachel, senator sanders is being very, very disciplined when it comes to sticking to his game plan. he's saying, she's a moderate. she's tied to wall street. period. is that strategy going to continue to be effective? >> well, it's been working for him, at least in new hampshire so far. i think that saying this is all home state advantage between new
7:10 am
little bit of a stretch. there's definitely a real questionphenomenon behind bernie sanders, and i think some is driven by doubts about secretary clinton. one is she's part of a corrupt system. last night, she gave full voice to all of her criticisms of him. he never did exactly the same thing back at her. he made his case, and he spelled it out, but he didn't sort of -- he didn't go as aggressively at her in terms of his language on the stage. that was a form of discipline. i think both candidates did what they wanted to do but it was a different approach from the both of them. >> the moment of the debate seemed to be when hillary clinton said, you've been running this artful smear. if you want to say something to me, say it now and say it directly. how does that play? does it make her look strong, or was the tone off putting? >> we'll see. it was interesting. certainly kree lyly created audible gasps and boos in the room which,
7:11 am
the room which side the audience was leaning, sanders or clinton. that moment, everybody stood up straight. i can tell you, savannah, in talking to the campaign, that was a real moment. meaning, this wasn't like a planned idea, i'm going to accuse him of smearing the campaign. she sort of is like -- somebody described it to me, enough is enough and decided to go after him. i think the two of them might not like each other. >> remains to be seen. we didn't get a chance to talk about the republicans. we have several days left until new hampshire and we can accomplish that. chuck and rachel, thank you, guys. >> thanks. there are new clues this morning in the mid-flight blast that ripped a hole in the side of a passenger plane in somalia. explosivee residue now discovered. keir simmons is following the investigation. good morning to you. >> good morning. a team of five u.s. experts have arrived to help with the investigation this morning.
7:12 am
questions include, who got it on to the plane and how? >> reporter: the force that ripped open this aircraft cabin was likely a bomb made of military grade explosives. multiple sources tell nbc news. the newspaper report of a suicide bomber in a wheelchair may not be accurate, according to a somali aviation ficial, who says they're awaiting test results. >> you have not been told whether explosive residue has been found? >> not yet. we do not have an official report on the team that did the investigation, that it is from explosives. >> reporter: he says the fbi has been invited to help investigate how some type of explosion blew a hole in the fuselage. if it was a bomb, who is responsible? somali is home to al qaeda and isis-linked militants. another question this morning, was lax airport security a factor? where were the explosives hidden? a failure of the plane itself
7:13 am
believe this increasingly looks like terrorism. >> the man who was sucked out of the plane when the apparent explosion happened has been identified as a 55-year-old. officialssell us that he does not appear to have been a suicide bomber which, guys, leaves more unexplained questions. >> thank you very much. a lo it oft of eyes on london after a panel ruled that we wikileaks founder should be allowed to walk free. he tried to escape extradition to sweden where he faces rape challenges. he has been detained by britain and sweden and should be freed. the ruling is not binding and police will make every effort to leave him if he leaves the embassy. to the unprecedented security measures in place across the san francisco bay ahead of sunday's super bowl.
7:14 am
agencies in a massive operation. nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer is at levi's stadium where the game will be played. good morning to you. >> good morning. the fed, state and local authorities have been preparing for the super bowl for the last two years. officials say this is the largest sporting event in the country and they know it could be a target. >> reporter: from f-15s in the air to an army of officers on the ground. san francisco may be the most fortified city in the country today. this morning, the bay area may also be the highest profile target in the nation. >> super bowl is a national security event, and we recognize that this is just as important as any other one. whether it be the state of the union address or the pope visit. we're here to protect the skies for the super bowl. >> reporter: with more than a million people here for the super bowl, the land off high-tech is also going old school.
7:15 am

7:40 am
you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto . nice pass. safety first. 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. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, 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 kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto ... ...was the right move for us.
