molly -- >> i'm gayle king with norah o'donnell, jeff glor. charlie standing by in havana. he'll bring us the latest on how cuba is remembering fidel castro today. but first, there's news to bring you from colombia where a plane carrying a soccer team crashed overnight and killing at least 76 people. six people we're told survived. >> the plane went d medellin. >> investigators are focusing on a possible electrical failure, but they're also not ruling out the chance that the plane ran out of fuel. wildfires have forced thousands of people in tennessee to evacuate. more than 30 buildings have been destroyed, including two schools. officials say about 100 homes are threatened. the national guard, more than a dozen local fire departments are fighting the flames. the fire broke out last weekend in the smoky mountains.
8:03 am
to escape. after a car and knife attack at the ohio state university, the investigation is leading towards terrorism as the motive. police say that abdullah zack ali artan plowed into a crowd with his car and then slashed five of them with a butcher knife. a campus police shot and kill the suspect one hour later. he came to the united states back in 2014. before that, he spent seven years in a pakistan after leaving somalia. artan graduated from a community college earlier this year. he recently posted on facebook that he was, quote, sick and tired of seeing my fellow muslim brothers and sisters being killed and tortured everywhere. authorities began searching his apartment last night. they believe that he acted alone. president-elect donald trump has announced another cabinet member. mr. trump will tap tom price.
8:04 am
critics of obamacare. before entering congress he was an orthopedic surgeon. he's also holding meetings for two candidates for secretary of state. bob corker and 2012 gop nominee mitt romney. mr. trump talked with four star general and former cia director david petraeus. john heilemann is managing editor of bloomburg politics. good morning. >> good morning. president's choice for who he wants is one thing, but getting them confirmed is another. >> that's true. it's hard to imagine that any of the people being considered are going to have a real problem getting through a republican senate. obviously david petraeus -- >> david petraeus -- >> david petraeus has some vetting issues. clearly, there are many people who will point out that for a republican president-elect who spent a lot of his campaign attacking hillary clinton over her e-mail use and over the
8:05 am
classified material, with petraeus, he got in trouble with the law for, there will be a fight over if petraeus is nominated. again, it's hard for me to believe that any of these candidates will have a problem. >> do you see a problem -- kellyanne conway, and there are reports that she has gone rogue, she said that's not the case, she's a supporter of donald trump. e your mind? >> only one that matters is the whole thing about donald trump. with kellyanne conway, donald trump likes chaos. she's not dumb. i'm sure she would is not come forward saying anything that she didn't feel comfortable about maintaining her close relationship with donald trump. everyone i talked to says the same thing which is, man, we just don't know what donald
8:06 am
there's things like whether he things the cut of the gib. i wouldn't be surprised if any of the following people, mitt romney, david petraeus, rudy giuliani would not suffice. >> tom price, the secretary of health and human services. he called obamacare crazy. where does this tell where you the president-elect is going on the ada >> well, the president-elect spent, again, a large part of the campaign saying he was going to repeal and replace obamacare which starting on day one, which is overly dramatic, overpromising. can't really do that in one day. but this is consistent with what president-elect trump campaigned on. it's true that congressman price has put forth -- unlike many republicans who criticized the
8:07 am
replacement. the more interesting question is the fact that congressman price also want overhaul medicare in a pretty dramatic way along the lines that paul ryan has. saying he wants to preserve it. on the question of repealing or replacing obamacare, there's alignment on the new proposed chairman and secretary and president-elect. and the question of medicare, which is obviously the biggest federal some disagreement between the dhs proposed chair and president-elect. >> and mitt romney and trump are having dinner at a french restaurant. >> it's true. you guys have been knocking on donald trump's twitter feed? >> no. >> the news out of nowhere, the president-elect has come out with a tweet about flag burning. i'm not sure what provoked this tweet.
8:08 am
the american law of flag burning should be thrown in jail or lose their citizenship. i'm not sure if mr. trump is aware that's an amendment to the constitution. i'm not sure you can strip someone of their citizenship. world leaders are arriving in havana ahead of tonight's spain's former king, the president of neck raicaragua an ecuador. notably absent vladimir putin, justin true dough, barack obama and joe biden. the white house still deciding whether to send an official delegation. charlie rose, good morning to you.

8:18 am
next year. jill schlesinger is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with mortgage rates. it was owe traumatic, it was double digits back then. now you said it's raised to 4%. >> it's weird, before the election if you were going to get a 30-year fixed rate mortgage you were paying 3.34%. now up over 4%. >> that's still good. >> 4% is amazing. but that jump is pretty dramatic. and the reason the rates have jumped is that the market believes that president-elect trump's policies where you get more spending, more tax cuts, we'll see more growth. so the federal reserve will have to raise rates faster. all interest rates will likely rise as a result. that's why mortgage rates are up. again, it's very low historically, honestly, if you're shopping for a mortgage,
8:19 am
more a month than a year ago. >> especially if they keep ticking up which they will presumably for a couple years now. >> and people are thinking, wait a minute, should i buy my house right now? wait a second, we're still looking at low mortgage rates and you've got to look at your financial situation. we talk financial planners all the time, what do they say, they say you should be spending up to 30% of your income on housing. housing can b can mean renting. it's tough in a high-priced mortgage to keep that housing cost at 30%. but what's really important is, if you are about to buy a house, you got to factor that in. you also have to come up with a down payment. 20%. you can do less but it's safer to do 20%. then you deputy factor in maintenance costs. the boiler can break.
8:20 am
first-time home buyer age? i just heard more millennials are now living at home. >> more millennials are living at home. the average age is still in the low 30s. about 33. if you want to buy a house, be clear. run your numbers. rent first and then buy. if you can stay with your parents, rock on. keep saving. >> but you don't want to date a guy who's still living at home. that's a real issue. the world chess championshi stalema stalemate, ahead see who is ahead after a series of ties. you're watching "cbs this morning." >> announcer: this morning's money is sponsored by rocket mortgage by quicken loans. with the garden patio will be gone. or you could push that button. sfx: rocket launching. cockpit sounds and music crescendo. skip the bank, skip the waiting, and go completely online.
