8:00 am
martha: when you through the pitch it went right over the mound and when tom brady through it what happened? bill: no. martha: that is bad. no one could hit it if you were a pitcher. bill: what is worse it is on camera. martha: forever and ever and ever. see you in an hour. bye everybody. jon: lots of new action in the 2016 race for the white house. good morning to you. i'm jon scott. jenna: hi everybody i'm jenna lee. the republican field now getting a little bigger, with florida senator marco rubio officially running, calling himself a leader for the new american century. his potential rival new jersey governor chris christie is in new hampshire, the state that holds the first primary in 2016. former florida governor jeb bush stops in the key swing state of ohio today. chief political correspondent carl cameron is in miami
8:01 am
watching all of this. hi carl. >> reporter: for jeb bush and chris christie they're planning or thinking or expecting or considering to being a president but marco rubio is one of the three presidential candidates and he has made it very clear not only will he go after die dynastic politics suggesting names like clinton and bush, are a question of privilege and could upset the american dream if every parent couldn't say to their kid some day you might grow up to be president unless you're married to a former president or brother or son of one. he says it is also really about whether or not one can be honest and whether the american dream can be continued. listen. >> just yesterday a leader from yesterday -- [booing] -- began a campaign for president by promising to take us back to yesterday. [cheering] yesterday is over.
8:02 am
[cheering].. >> reporter: rubio is considered a top tier candidate. jeb bush or scott walk remember near the top. he is tied with the top tier of candidates in the field. chris christie will make news. former florida governor jeb bush is talking to the chamber of congress in ohio. he is not expected to announce his candidacy until late may or june when current governors finish up their legislative sessions and make announcements. mr. bush is traveling country in key state ohio in the general election one where there is governor john kasich, eyeing a possible presidential run. they're bumping into each other. chris christie is returning to the campaign trail. he has been doing town halls in new jersey last couple months. he is up to 134 since he got into office. today he is in new hampshire.
8:03 am
he will tackle the third rail of american politics. he will talk about entitlement reform. specifically he will suggest that social security and medicare should be means tested, and that the eligibility ages for both should be raised. tough medicine, very risky in american politics. people who talk about entitlement reform don't tend to get warm receptions from awful lot of american seniors and those in need but indisputable fact both are costing the government a fortune. entitlement is a big part of the nation's debt and deficit problem. these things have to be dealt with. christie has to do that to tell everybody he is a truth teller. even though a thing a lot of voters don't like to hear. jenna: we'll see if that risk is rewarded. carl, thank you very much. jon: for more on the growing gop field in the 2016 white house race let's bring in a.b. stoddard, associate editor and columnist at "the hill" and charlie hirt, a columnist at "the washington times." so marco rubio join ad race right now that has three
8:04 am
official entrants, ab. more are certainly going to jump on the bandwagon. he seems to direct most of his fire at the democratic candidate, hillary clinton. how what's, what's the strategy there? >> well the importance of that rand paul to date, even before he was declared candidate was one of the only republicans wannabe potential contender candidates talking about bill and hillary clinton. they're trying to show the base, that, they are willing to go after her. and that they're going to be able to go after her. sooner you do that, the more realistic a candidate you become. potential nominee will have to face hillary clinton. we all assume, unless and until something unforeseen happens. earlier you begin to prove to the grassroots that you are a person to do that, the better standing you have with them as serious contender. rubio needs to, because he is young he needs to do it it, because rand paul is doing it but needs to do it to push off
8:05 am
against bush in the way carl cameron described. hillary and bush share some charactertics. they have happen to be some things in common. they happen to be from dynasties. they happen to be in their 60s. you will see him say attacking hillary i can attack her and push off against their age. jon: how do you think of that if agree with her charlie? >> i think agree with that. his candidate such hill battle on paper. running as senator and senators don't normally do very well. he is running on his biography even though he is 43 years old which is kind of, could sort of be a little off-putting but very appealing candidate. he speaks in a very sunny optimistic way. i think better than a lot of the republicans do, particularly on, you know, thorny issues like immigration. he famously had to, you know
8:06 am
revise his position on immigration. he is now a whole lot more in line with what the mainstream republican establishment or republican voters think on immigration. but, he is very food. i think is probably his greatest strength, he is very good talking about the american dream and doing it in a very personal way, talking about his parents. that's the part of immigration that conservatives, most conservatives really like the they like that. they don't like illegal immigration. they love legal immigration and, talking about realizing the american dream. and i think that that in a way puts him in, in a lot of ways, sort of the perfect candidate to go against hillary clinton because he can do it without being nasty and without frightening women voters and without coming off being a sort of an ugly, ugly republican. jon: but there are a. about, as i said at the outset,
8:07 am
there are a lot republicans yet to get into the race. at least four names maybe a lot more than that. how do people like marco rubio differentiate themselves from the huckabees and jindals and others who might come down the road? >> marco rubio hopes to be a blend and bridge between different factions in the party. hopes to be socially conservative enough for the huckabee supporters, to be a hawk enough, to be new and fresh enough, enough of an outsider, one with compelling story you will see him push back not only against bush as i mentioned, scott walker who is topping many many polls in key early states. he will say you don't have to have a governor to come in and handle foreign policy crises like the ones we're experiencing now. that he has been steeped in these issues for years. he will try to differentiate himself against scott walker, who has that strength but also, told people at cpac that he faced 110,000 protesters. so he can handle isis. jon: yeah, so far it has been
8:08 am
pretty kind on the republican side of the campaign trail, charlie. do you think these candidates and those who follow, are going to be able to set their sights on the eventual democrat nominee without tearing themselves apart or tearing the party apart in the process? >> i think it will be somewhat of a tightrope walk but as we saw in, four years ago, with the wide republican field it is going to get nasty and i think the trick is, how you get nasty get your points in, get your hits in against the other candidates. again, without compromising that sort of sunny demeanor, that that people want to get behind. and i think that the two candidates who are sort of best positioned at the moment, in that respect are rubio and walker. both of them are sort of fresh enough faces. they both have an ability to appeal to a broad cross-section. i think that somebody like, i think jeb bush is going to wind
8:09 am
up getting so much incoming about his name and about being part of sort of the dynasty and being part of the establishment that is not, that voters are not too thrilled with right now and i so i think it will, what we're going to see very quickly a battle between, the two of them and maybe one or two others that get in. and, but it's, going to get nasty between now and primaries. jon: 19 months to go until election day. charlie hirt a.b. stoddard. thank you both. jenna: sticking with politics, hillary clinton is scheduled to campaign in iowa later today after two-day road trip meeting with students and teachers at a small community college. we've white house correspondent ed henry is live there in monticello iowa, with the very latest. ed? >> reporter: good to see you, jenna. this is interesting because this will be first chance for hillary clinton to sit down with
8:10 am
some middle-class americans she promised on monday she will be champion of. significant, because she took this little road trip in the van, calling it the scooby van. we've seen little of her actually interacting with voters. she popped up at a chipolte in ohio based on surveillance tape there, literally showed her behind dark sunglasses, not exactly mingling with voters. here is her chance to roll up the sleeves failed to do something in 2007 and 2008, when she lost the iowa caucuses to then senator barack obama. now the president of course, who yesterday did an interview with a local tv station gave her another bit of support. listen. >> a little early for endorsements. she just announced yesterday but here is what i can say. she is talented tenacious. was a great secretary of state. she is a friend of mind. i think she would be an excellent president. >> reporter: something that vice president joe biden might not like to hear. he says he is still died
8:11 am
deciding whether he will get in here. interesting that can cut both ways. clearly not an endorsement of the president of hillary clinton. that is saying nice things, leads republicans like america rising pac to put together a lot of obama controversies and some of the clinton ones,. >> losing ground in key states include iowa. >> are you saying america should blindly trust her judgment? >> one set of rules for clintons. >> you remember whitewater remember file gate, travelgate, pardongate. remember benghazi. >> less than half say mrs. clinton is honest and trustworthy. >> i think i'm probably the most transparent perp in public life. >> reporter: interesting, because, what you see the republican pacs as well as some republican candidates for candidates do is engage hillary clinton if this is general election battle already. may raise their name i.d. and

with more on this story, william is live from our west coast news room. william? >> jenna, i didn't think you would mind me taking a nap here. this story takes sleeping on the job to a whole new height but this guy also got a heck of a wakeup call. imagine when those jet engines fired up and he's banging, let me out. by then it's too late. nobody can hear him. it's 14 minutes into the flight when the pilots level off and they hear banging from below. you can hear that. trapped in the front baggage area under first class passengers also heard the guy screaming and pounding. they tell the flight attendant who tell the air marshals who tell the pilot who tell the 179 passengers aboard they're headed back to seattle. >> passengers in the first class cabin heard banging, loud banging and noise and so they alerted crew right away.

8:21 am
jenna: that would have served him right. i thought you were choking. i didn't know you were yawning. i didn't even pause. i just let it continue. >> i'm choking and it's okay with you, right? jenna: i was like onward with the story. makes us think about dozing off at work a little bit more. thank you so much. we'll find out what happens next. >> i read that his fellow ramp workers were yelling into the belly of the plane before they closed it all up. everybody clear? he just didn't wake up. jenna: there's a lot more we need to know about this story. is it a rel thing? do the baggage handlers just sort of cuddle up among the baggage just for a power nap on a regular basis? jon: i hope not. maybe the guy is working two jobs. the senate is taking up a bill to scrap medicare's troubled doc fix physician payment formula after the house approved its version last month. what the massive price tag means for your bottom line. plus as a key senate committee

jenna: right now senate lawmakers getting set to vote on a bill that would give congress a chance to weigh in on a final nuclear agreement with iran. in the meantime as obama administration battles this issue, there's facing anti-american sentiment inside the islamic republic. that video put together by our next guest, a portion of a story that he did. tom is the tehran bureau chief for "the new york times." he's one of the few western journalists living and working in iran and he's publishing a weekly series called "a man of iran." in this segment you introduce us to a man who is called big mouth. why is he called big mouth? what group does he belong to in iran? >> he's called mr. big mouth
8:27 am
because he's always in front of the camera shouting death to america and he represents the small declining group of hard liners that still have quite a bit of power in this country but cannot put as many people on the streets as they could before. jenna: we see him driving his motorcycle to friday prayer and we have footage. we have reported on the ayatollah saying a variety of different things about america. he said that america is deceptive. we then see the chants. this is very common what we see out of iran the chants of death to america. you say this is part of a big propaganda machine. why do you see it that way? why should america take iran at its word when they say death to america take it for what it means? >> the relationship between the united states and iran is something similar to that -- to
8:28 am
friends who very long ago made up all the reasons why they are engaged in such a fight. iranians have had many grievances towards the united states. the revolution 36 years ago so they feel bad about the united states and the slogan death to america, actually stems from that period and it's still repeated at the friday prayers even all the way up to last week. jenna: and that was so interesting about what you said in your reporting that this is a decades long chant that continues until this day. you also say the hard liners are declining and you challenge big mouth so that saying there's change inside iran. do you think there's enough change and enough decline among those in power that we could see a regime change in iran? >> regime change is very, very difficult word over the past
8:29 am
decades in this region. but what we could see is certain reforms that might make iran a more acceptable country for the united states. i don't think the iranians are very interested in forming alliances with the united states but the fact that i can interview an iranian hard liner and live to see the day and not end up in a video wearing an orange jump suit says a lot about the real level of anger that the hard liners have. lock at the country next door. look at iraq syria, look at the rise of the islamic state. a group that iran completely en lyly counters. this is a group where the united states and the iranian states run parallel. jenna: we're seeing some video we had after there was announcement that the framework deal with iran was in place a few weeks ago. i'm curious if you could thomas can you give us an idea what is being reported on inside iran? we're talking a lot about the ayatollah's tweets and what he
8:30 am
had to say. that's the sort of press we're getting outside country but inside country, what are average iranians hearing about this deal? >> people initially were very happy and we spoke about that last week. but of course, this happiness got had a serious undertone now that it's clear there are a lot of differences between the interpretation the united states has of the framework agreement and that the iranian leader has of the framework agreement but at the same time the choice is made to again, start talking. i think they start again in a couple of days to continue to discuss the details. the process is moving forward and when you ask ordinary people you know, to drive the taxi or drive the bus or that comes and delivers my newspaper, he would still think that this deal will ultimately happen. jenna: interesting. a very interesting snap shot for us about what's happening inside iran. that is the series that our viewers can watch online as well. great to have you as always. look forward to talking again.

8:38 am
expert and author of predator the secret origins of the drone revolution and captain nash is a retired aviator. you have a great panel today. we explore this topic and richard, i want to start with you. you just wrote on this with the title, this is the title of your article, war against isis shows limits of drones. does it show us the limits of drone technology? >> yeah. there's a -- partly because of hollywood, i suppose there's a notion that drones can replace manned aircraft and the war against isis is showing why that's wrong. the air force and their february budget submission actually revealed they're only flying 10 drones at a time over iraq and syria, parts held by isis and they're notable -- not suitable to burn pilots alive. you can't do it because there
8:39 am
aren't enough and they don't carry enough firepower. jenna: so lawmakers say we need to invest more in drones. we've seen them take out terrorists before. we want drones that can fly for days, go deep within enemy territory and that way we have very little damage to our men and women and we have the potential to be more aggressive. what do you think about that? >> wow. that would be cool. the only problem is the laws of physics, you've got range endurance and payload, the three critical things. to put a drone up there for the amount of time that they want it to be up there would require something so big but it also has to launch off aircraft carriers. oh, but no. don't just do that. it's got to be able to operate in contested air space something the drones have not been doing. iraq, syria, yemen somalia totally uncontested air space. we have total air dominance there. now we want it to operate in
8:40 am
contested air space which means it has to be extremely low visibility, stealthy, so it's got to be stealthy. the same critics, though that are asking for all of these things will be the first ones to pounce on the navy when the thing goes way over cost and budget and schedule because they're trying to cram too many capabilities into it. jenna: those are points well taken. let me just ask you this. we're talking to general scales and he was for more investment in seeing what the technology can do because perhaps it would not put our men and women on the front lines at risk. that is where he saw the benefit of investing in technology to see what it does next. what do you think about that point? >> well technology is a tool in the tool box and to try to take awe bunch of money. there's the cost to develop something and then opportunity costs. defense budgets tend to be zero sum. not just within the department but within each service. so as soon as you start buying those things, the opportunity
8:41 am
cost is what didn't you buy that you may need later? so it sucks up a lot of oxygen out of the programs when you go into that technology. if the army wants to invest in all of that they'll find difficulty. they'll go more towards the soldier. jenna: one of the things we're talking about here as a tangent is the fact that we have used the drones before against terrorists as we mentioned and there is that question about when that technology could be used against us right here in the united states. what about that threat? because i think that's what people think about, okay. if there's drones that are going to come over here and could hurt us then what about sending droeps to intercept the drones before they get here? without knowing much about the technology, i ask you that question. what about that? >> well one of the things that i describe and explain in my book is the fact that we are able to fly drones on the other side of the planet. not simply by subscribe to go satellite tv but because some very clever people in the air
8:42 am
force put together a system that sends the signals by fiber optic cable to europe to satellite uplink stations in germany that then goes up to a satellite and reaches the drones. i don't know how many countries in the world are able to do that. i don't know how many terrorist grups could manage to put together a communication system like that. i'm frankly a lot more worried about al qaeda wannabes building pressure cooker bombs and letting them off in public places. jenna: point well taken. how do you think our foreign policy would be impacted if we relied more on machines rather than men when it comes to conflict? >> i think we could walk down a dangerous path on two levels. you don't want to make warfare too easy and too remote controlled because you might be tempted to engage in it more often. it is a human endeavor the most wasteful but that's the key. the other thing is there's no
8:43 am
easy solution. if we start investing a lot of money into those things that only operate in a certain range on the spectrum of warfare, we're going to give up capability elsewhere where it's really needed that plays on the full spectrum. jenna: maybe we can pay servicemen and women a lot more. that's also a potential idea. thank you very much. >> you bet. j comes to hillary clinton and jeb bush, many analysts see them as inevitable nominees in the 2016 election. think again why history often trumps conventional political wisdom.
