this is nothing more than a power grab. >> gridlock. gridlock. gridlock. >> there are no rules in the united states senate. >> enough is enough. >> the senate goes nuclear. democrats toss out the rules and why republicans this morning are vowing war now. >> different subject. a real life nuclear deal hangs in the balance as talks with iran continue. we are live with the latest. her remark and i think she made it more than once, is, no, i'm going to leave these clothes on. i want them to see what they have done. >> 50 years ago today, president
john kennedy was killed along with the mystery what happened of jackie's iconic pink suit worn on that fateful day? >> the memories are every and the papers everywhere, the "new york post," they have a special edition. >> something you can take out and keep as a memento and share with the kids. >> i'm john berman. welcome to "early start." >> i'm zoraida sambolin. it is nice to have you with us. it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. begin with the stunning historic vote in the u.s. senate. so extreme it is called going nuclear. essentially blowing up what had been the rules for a generation. no longer will 60 votes be necessary to move ahead. with most presidential nominations, no longer will the minority be able to filibuster or executive branch conditions. democrats have been threatening this for years. republicans say the majority has
gone too far and they will regret it. chief correspondent dana bash has more. >> reporter: john mccain continues to work across the aisle and by detonating the nuclear action democrats may have blown up any senate bipartisan. republican feathers are so ruffled an agreement on issues that should be passed maybe harder to find. >> there are going to be difficulties from time to time. where cooperation was probably the case in the past, and will not be now. >> reporter: the historic rules change strips republicans of their power to block the president's executive and judicial nominees, except the supreme court. instead of 60 votes to break a filibuster it's now 51 votes a simple majority. it's called the nuclear option for good reason. just a few years ago, even democratic leader harry reid said he wouldn't do it saying it would be? >> a black chapter in the history of the senate. >> so what about now?
>> reporter: why isn't this a black chapter? >> things have changed dramatically since 2005, dramatically. for the last four and a half years they have done everything to deny the fact that obama was elected and then re-elected. >> reporter: translation? gop obstruction is unprecedented. to back that up, democrats point to statistics from the nonpartisan research service. in the history of the country, there have been 168 filibusters of presidential nominees about half 82 happened during the obama administration. >> in summary, this is a power grab. >> angry republicans don't necessarily dispute democrat statistics about nominees they have blocked but how many judges they have confirmed, 215 and rejected five. the president opposed this tactic as a senator when democrats were in the minority. >> if they choose to change the rules and put an end to democratic debate, then the
fighting and the bitterness and the gridlock will only get worse. >> reporter: he has changed his tune too. >> the vote today, i think, is an indication that majority of senators believe, as i believe, that enough is enough. >> reporter: dana bash, cnn, capitol hill. that is a big milestone in the senate, no doubt. there was a major milestone for investors in the economy to tell you about. the dow jones industrials average finished above 16,000 for the first time, up more than 900 points to close at 16,009. overall the dow is up more than 22%. that's amazing. that is a dramatic turnaround where we were four years ago at the height of the financial crisis. christine romans will have much more on this in "money time" in the next half hour. the team in charge of the obama care knew they were in a bumpy ride to the days leading up to the disastrous rollout. internal e-mails relieved by republicans investigating the
launch revealed healthcare.gov failed to use 100 end users and was supposed to handle 10,000 or more. >> the talks are called intense and substantial but not called yet is done. there is no deal yet between international negotiators and the iranian government on freezing tehran's nuclear program. our matthew chance is live in geneva. what is the latest there, matthew? >> reporter: john, it's very difficult to say. certainly we know that u.s. diplomats are briefed by katherine ashton in these talks over iran, nuclear program. you have to hang in these diplomatic situations on every word that is spoken, off the record, on the record by the various parties involved and the words they are using in jp terms they are calling the negotiations useful and substantial but saying they are intense as well. it's clear difficult negotiation
but to be expected it was always going to be hard. the objective is do a deal with guarantees that iran cannot develop a nuclear bomb. it's something it says it's not going to do and many countries, including the united states. deep skeptical about that. in return iran will want sanctions for the crippling sanctions imposed by the international community and doing damage on its economy and so the detail of that that is currently being worked out. u.s. secretary of state john kerry saying the parties are as close as they have been for the past decade but still some way to go. >> coming into this a sense that the five parties in european union weren't in agreement what the deal would be but iran needs to come along. is that still the case or seem to be what the tea leaves are saying around that building? >> reporter: i don't know if it's entirely fair to blame iran on this. some obligate obstacles that prevented a deal from being done 12 days ago when other foreign ministers were here as well.
a couple of things holding the negotiations up as far as where one is. iran's insist ns for a full more recognition of its right to enrich uranium and something the powers have balked at. on the other side the extent of verification. the french raising objection about the heavy water reaction that iran is building in iraq which would produce a by-product they want greater inspections on that and work on that to be stopped. so there are a couple of problems on both sides. they are not insurmountable we are told by diplomats but they are still watching the details. >> watch this over the weekend. there could be quick progress but we just don't know yet. matthew chance, thank you. a diplomacy going on involving afghanistan. a tentative deal is starting to look shaky. hamid karzai suddenly insisting the agreement should not be signed until the afghan people
elect a new president in april. the white house is responding by imposing a year-end deadline. without this signed pact, there will be no u.s. support groups left in afghanistan by the end of next year. strong signals this morning from the united states to north korea. three americans being held there in strained relations with washington could improve and comes after an 85-year-old korean war vet on a visa was obtained. tensions with pyongyang at an all-time hoof at north koreans conducted nuclear test and threatened a strike on the south korea and the the united states. right now, the pentagon is facing nearly a trillion dollars of cut in the next decade and the next could come in january if congress doesn't agree on a spending plan that would end
those automatic cuts. it's friday. that means the weekend is almost here. did you see berman? aahh! but for a lot of us it may be a little snowy. this was the scene in denver suburbs yesterday. that snow, we understand, is moving east. i say if it's coming, indra, bring a lot of it so we can play! >> not this friday is all that ma matters. >> we are talking about more snow in the west but flurries are going to be northeast. start out west and look at colorado. currently not seeing too much. it has kind of moved south of their region but higher elevations in arizona and new mexico and southern portions of colorado are still going to be talking about that snow and good amounts of it as the system drops farther south. of course, farther south we will be talking about rain where it's a little bit warmer. let's separate the two here. look at the amounts of snow. almost two feet of snow south of telluride and 1 to 4 inches in new mexico and big bear out towards california looking for about a foot of snow from this system. we know it's really good.
you can actually see that low spinning around and this moisture filling into the region so flood warnings likely with the heavy rain into the southwest. south the systems making their way east. notice the cold front not expecting to bring a lot of rain with it. the bulk of the heavier rain farther south but seeing showers into the northeast and only an inch of rain to the north and farther to the south, maybe 2 inches or so but the temperatures we are going to be talking about. look at these current temperatures. pittsburgh, 51 right now. the reason i'm sewing you that big gap is the gap will not be that big by the time we get to sunday and talking about 20s and 30s in new york and maybe a little snow. >> thank you. >> it's almost the season. it's not too early. indra, thank you so much. it was an unforgettable moment. jackie kennedy covered in blood after her husband was murdered 50 years ago today. this morning, remember that tragic death and then this question -- what became of the iconic pink suit, the suit that

plaza in dallas for the first official ceremony marking the tragedy but the days before the anniversary also brought protesters insisting that jfk's death was part of a conspiracy. >> so one iconic imagine from that day is the first lady jackie kennedy in her pink suit. it would become a symbol not only of what happened in dallas but also her grace in the face of unspeakable tragedy. here is randi kaye with more. >> reporter: in the words of president john f. kennedy, she looked smashing in it, which may be why the president asked jackie kennedy to wear her now famous water medicallyin' pink suit on dallas on november 22nd, 1963. >> the committee presents mrs. kennedy with a bouquet of red roses. >> reporter: it looked like cocoa 'cha nell but the suit was a knockoff made in america and the lady had worn is six times before that fateful day. here she is in 1962 awaiting the
prime minister of algeria, john jr. in her arms. in dallas on november 22nd at this ft. worth chamber of commerce luncheon. >> no one wonders what lyndon and i wear. >> reporter: later that day, president kennedy would be dead and the first lady's stunning pink suit, stained forever with her husband's blood, would begin a long and mysterious journey when aides suggested she change her clothes after the shooting, she refused. phillip sheenan wrote a book about the kennedy assassination. >> her remark and i think she made it more than once is, no, i'm going to leave these clothes on. i want them to see what they have done. >> reporter: hours later, mrs. kennedy continued to wear the suit during the emergency swearing in of lyndon johnson as president. >> that whole scene is, obviously, just surreal. she arrives in the cabin in air force one in these clothes covered with the president's
blood and expected to stand there and witness the swearing in of her husband's successor. >> reporter: mrs. kennedy was still in her suit with when she arrived later that evening at andrews air force base in maryland where she received her husband's body. the president's brother at her side in the middle of the night. once at the white house, her personal maid put the suit in a bag so mrs. kennedy wouldn't have to look at it. then some time in 1964, the blood-stained suit arrived here at the national archives building in the nation's capital. it came in a box, along with a handwritten note from jackie kennedy's mother on her personal stationary. it read simply -- jackie's suit and bag worn november 22nd, 1963. all this time, mrs. kennedy's pink suit has been forbidden from public view and will likely stay that way for a very long time. in 2003, after her mother's death, caroline kennedy gave the
suit to the people of the united states with the understanding that it wouldn't be put on public display for 100 years until 2103 and even then, the kennedy family must be consulted before any attempt is made to display the suit. all an effort to avoid sensationalizing that horrible act. and it's believed only a handful of people, maybe only as few as two, have seen the suit since. along with the suit and also hidden from view in the new archives in maryland, the blue blouse mrs. kennedy wore in dallas, her stockings, blue shoes, and blue purse. what they don't have is the first lady's pink pill box hat. >> the hat is a mystery. the hat apparently goes to the secret service initially and the secret service turns it over to mrs. kennedy's private secretary and then it disappears. it has not been seen since. >> reporter: the archive is making every effort to preserve the suit. it's stored in a windowless vault, in an acid-free container
where the air is changed every 20 minutes or so to properly maintain the woollen cloth. it is kept at a temperature of 65 to 68 degrees, which is best for the fabric. the suit story, a perfect ending for a first lady who craved privacy after so much pain. randy kaye, cnn, los angeles. >> there is such indelible images and the colors are so bright. even when it's black and white i think you see the pink exploding off the screen. >> that was a really special thing about "time" magazine, the colors that they had of all of these images which is so vivid and so bright. >> i have to say the bright images of that day are symbolic and emblem mattic of a way the colors are muted after that horrible act happened. this is all before. >> i didn't know the story of her suit. it really is remarkable. stay with cnn. we will bring you live coverage of anniversary events that are
