taxes, but we are also going to eliminate private health insurance premiums for individuals and for business. >> reporter: he also didn't hold back when asked about his opponent. >> this calls for a standing up response. >> okay. >> what do i think? let me give you a couple of examples. i voted against the war in iraq. hillary clinton voted for the war in iraq. >> reporter: later hillary clinton animated, energetic confronted with questions over her honesty and her e-mails. >> i've heard from quite a few people my age that they think you're dishonest. >> you know, look, i've been around a long time. people virginia thrown all kinds of things at me and i can't keep up with it. i just keep going forward. they fall by the wayside. they come up with these outlandish things and make these charges, i just keep going forward because there's nothing to it. >> reporter: but then a lighter moment when clinton was asked to respond to her opponent's new tv

snow in the east? abc's rob marciano takes a look. >> slightly milder air coming in before another cold shot comes in concerned about black ice then and concerned about the potential for a late week storm. at the moment there is a chance of it getting closer to the east coast but we think the likely track is well offshore. if that happens then they'll be some light snow for eastern new england. >> winter has arrived. thank you, rob. on the west coast northern california has its own natural disaster that is brewing at this hour. the residents of this apartment complex in pacifica near san francisco have been ordered to evacuate as this cliff keeps falling into the ocean. the cause, weeks of heavy storms and high surf, it's not just the apartment building that's at risk. a nearby auto shop has lost most of its parking lot. >> in the last week probably seven, eight feet at least, in the last 40 years, 100 feet. you either laugh or cry. that's all you can do.
