tv   Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo  FOX News  May 24, 2015 7:00am-8:01am PDT

7:00 am
iran fighting transparency as six world powers resume talks. hi everyone. i'm maria bartyiroma. not wanting any national inspectors on his country's military site. will any deal hold up? i will talk with a member of the senate foreign relations committee about the bill that would give congress say. the site of an eight-year battle during the iraq war now in the hand offer isis. former joint chiefs of staff, richard sherman on the strategy
7:01 am
to defeat the group. hillary clinton breaks her silence with the media. a lot of questions remain specially on her e-mails. the 2016 race for the white house as we look ahead on sunday morning futures. the supreme leader of iran not seeing eye to eye with world leaders on a key part of the deal to curb the country's nuclear program. ayatollah khamenei said he would not allow foreign inspectors on his military sites, something iranian leaders have said before. where do we stand? congress awaits the president's signature on a bill that would give them the say on any final deal. senator braso is with me from wyoming. so good to have you on the program. welcome. >> thanks for having me back, maria. >> would a deal hold up if iran refuses to allow inspectors in? >> i'm not sure it would. i'm not sure the president would
7:02 am
agree. a nuclear armed iran makes the world less safe less stable and less secure. that speech he gave was to the graduates of the military institution in iran just this past week. to me, an agreement has to be verifiable enforceable, accountable. we need to have inspections anywhere any time not just when the ayatollah says it is okay by appointment. >> you have been raising this question for some time pending a nuclear deal. at the end of the day, if he says no how do we stop any deal from going forward when we know it is not just about the u.s. but about the other five world powers? >> it has to do also specifically with the sanctions that congress has put on iran and, let's face it iran wants the money. i don't believe they want it for roads or hospitals or schools. i believe they want it for more terror because that's what we know they support with hamas, with hezbollah, with the hutis.
7:03 am
no sanctions relief from congress is going to occur unless this is a deal that meets the requirements that prevents iran from getting a nuclear weapon in the first place. that's where president obama started this. he said we have to stop iraq from developing a nuclear weapon. >> if we know that iran is the destruck tore in the neighborhood and we know that iran is the destructor helping other terrorist groups like hezbollah and hamas, why are we having this conversation? so much energy and time generated on this deal. why are we continuing this when we know what was just said? >> you are absolutely right. this is one of the most consequential parts of a president's foreign policy. we know the president has failed with foreign policy with russia with the red line in syria, with the pivot to china. all of those things are areas of
7:04 am
president obama's failures in foreign policy. i think he is so desperate for any deal with iran that my concern is that he is going to go for a bad deal rather than say no to any deal at all. >> right. senator, stay with us. a lot to talk with you. senator barrasso. first, how far apart are the two sides in these talks? fox news' senior correspondent, eric shawn. >> good morning. we are told a framework agreement will stop iran from building a nuclear bomb. there seems to be gaps large enough to drive that proverbial mack truck through it. >> we think the action in transparency is unprecedented. the additional protocol is an example of a forever agreement in what we have negotiated. >> the obama administration insists that the agreement will curb iran's nuclear quest. critics caution, you have to read the fine print.
7:05 am
>> iran's supreme leader will have the final say on any deal seems to be piling on more provisions and refusing to let the you states nuclear inspectors visit nuclear sites or interview iran's nuclear scientists. those suspected sites where iran is thought to have conducted nuclear explosive research are off limits. khamenei's nuclear adviser said quote, they want to visit some of our senators which include some of our military centers. military officials are not allowed to let any person investigate the defense systems of the islamic republic of iran. these matters are part of the security of the islamic republic of iran and such permission has not been granted by the commander n chief commander and chief of the armed forces. the u.n. was given some limited access in the past. critics have said without the ability of full inspections any
7:06 am
place, any time any agreement will be worthless. >> it almost doesn't matter whether there is a formal relief for the sanctions. i think the president is determined to sign this deal. he said it is a legacy comparable to owebamacare. iran is on the way to nuclear weapons whether this deal is signed or not. >> they want to interrogate our dear children. it comes as the atomic energy agency says that iran is not fully cooperating. the agency says they have identified what he calls the right place to visit at the par parchinning parching military site. >> more with republican senator, john barrasso of wyoming. give us the timeline. the house has passed a bill for congress to review the nuclear deal. what happens next? when can we know for sure that in fact congress will stop any
7:07 am
wrong deal from moving forward? >> that passed with 99 votes in the united states senate as well. so it is veto-proof margins for the president. we will have a month to review the deal if the president signs on and if the iranians agree. you look at this belligerent activity by the ayatollah. it is almost like he is saying we're going to get it no matter what. you cannot stop us. congress is prepared to say, this is a bad deal. we will vote that it is a bad deal this summer when we get a chns chance to really look at it if it does allow iran to get a nuclear weapon. they would be a nuclear as well as an industrial and a military powerhouse in the middle east which adds incredible instability to the area. we know and i was in saudi arabia earlier this year. they are going to want nuclear weapons. there is going to be a nuclear arms race middle east if iran gets a nuclear weapon. you are going to see it in
7:08 am
egypt, in turkey in the emirates. all of those people will want that. congress will have a say this summer when we get a look at the specific deals if the president agrees to a deal. it is sure sounding to me like iran with its belligerence is going to make it harder and harder for us to say hey, this is a good deal i don't think it will be. >> let's face it. the implications of any deal will have to be dealt with the next leader of the free world. this is going to land on the desk of the next president in terms of the ramifications of any deal. >> we know what drove the iranians to the bargaining place in the first place were the sanctions. sanctions on their ability. we froze assets. we didn't allow them to export oil. all of those things hit them in the pocketbook. that's why they are so desperate to try to relieve the sanctions. i don't want the president to play into that hand because it is all about the money and i know that that money will not be
7:09 am
put to good use. it will be put to the use of terror. they continue to be a nation that is a sponsor of terrorism. they are doing it all across the middle east. you see it right now with what they are doing in yemen. i have concerns with isis and their efforts there. they are on the ground. we are running air missions bombing missions from the air support. i met with the iraqi prime minister about that. the concern is that iraq could ultimately defeat isis. iran will have taken over the country, because it will be their military their boots on the ground controlling the ground. >> that's a really good point. by the way, isis at this point controlling 50% of iraq of syria, rather 50% of syria at this point. isis is controlling. let me move on to the trade bills on the table right now senator. when you talk to business leaders, they feel that these trade deals are going to really move the needle in terms of business and the economy for american companies. what's your take and why the
7:10 am
holdup? >> i support the trade deals. voted in favor of it. i actually am working with the president on this. there is a bipartisan group. the president has mentioned the need for this in the last five state of the union addresses. it has been the democrats and harry reid who has been blocking it. i hope we get it passed. when it comes to international trade, the question is who is going to write the rules? the united states or china. my vote is the united states. >> senator, good to have you on the program today. thanks so much. >> thanks so much for having me, maria. >> we will see you soon senator barrasso. isis taking a pair of key cities as they look to spread their radical message across the middle east. we'll talk with general richard myers as we talk about finally defeating this terrorist group. >> you can follow us on twitter @mariabartiromo. let me know what you would like to hear on the program. see, you just pull like this to go left.
7:11 am
and like so to go right. where are the brakes? uh, just grab ahold of both and pull straight back. and the "whoa!" is optional. you wouldn't buy a motorcycle without handlebars. no thanks. and you shouldn't ride a motorcycle without geico insurance. roadside assistance, 24 hour service, great rates. geico motorcycle. see how much you could save.
7:12 am
7:13 am
7:14 am
welcome back. a major blow dealt in the fight of isis. army taking control of the key iraqi city of ramadi. the terrorist overran the historic city of palmyra in syria. president obama called the loss of ramadi a tactical setback but he thinks we are not losing the battle against the terrorism group. the race is on to train mod ral syrian forces outside the country in places like jordan to help fight isis. the u.s. sending 2000 anti-tank rockets to iraq as well as training security forces not only to fight but kale in air strikes when needed. general richard meyers is the former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. it is wonderful to have you on the program. >> nice to see you. >> can you characterize our efforts to degrade this terrorist group right now? >> i can't get in way of general
7:15 am
alsted and general dempsey. i think probably right now as we're talking they are working hard to come up with an overall strategy to deal with this. i think the notion that we can rely on iraqi forces in iraq for instance, to deal with isis by themselves doesn't look like that is playing out very well. where else can we help besides with their power and besides with training and mentoring? what else could or should we be doing? that would be the big question. i don't have the answer to that. my inclination, of course is that we probably need to put more effort towards this. every time they have a victory like this that's more people that want to sign up for the train they are on. the isis train. more people are wanting to get on that train and fight. that's not a good thing. >> some of that equipment that the americans gave or lent in the security training program to the iraqis the iraqis were overrun. so some of that equipment was
7:16 am
just delivered. now isis has it. >> the same thing happened in mosul, isis captured a lot of equipment that had been sold or given to the iraqi army. when you leave your position and you run, that's what happens. it goes back to the whole governs issue in iraq. is the government seen by the military as something somebody or an organization they want to fight for. then you mix in the sectarian issues. the president said it was a tactical defeat. i think general dempsey said words to that effect as well. on one level, it certainly was. on a political level, in terms of sunni/shia relations inside iraq it is a little more diplomatic. >> this is a key iraqi city.
7:17 am
u.s. troops fought here in ramadi for eight years. it has a lot of symbolism? >> i think when you look at the maliki government and their inability to reconcile between sunni and shia and now we have a new government and then we have this incident there are, i think, a lot of disenfranchised sunnis that are going to have to be brought back on side if iraqi forces are going to be successful against isis in the country. i think that's the big concern. i know all the leadership knows that. that's the big concern. >> then there is al qaeda. we get this big data dump. your reaction to the 100 plus bin laden documents that were made public this past week? >> absolutely fascinating, i think, to show thinking by al qaeda, their leadership and other elements of all qaeda and the fact that there was still plodding going on for at least
7:18 am
in osama bin laden's mind big attacks against the west and particularly the u.s. this threat has not gone away. whatever form it takes, whether it is isis or all qaeda or other forms as well. al qaeda and the arabian peninsula, they are always planning and strategizing. sometimes we have insight. sometimes we don't. you can be sure they are plotted and what they are plotting is something that is not good for the united states. >> all at a time we are negotiating with iran over their nuclear ambitions? >> yes. it reminds me of our 1994 agreement with north korea. that we would give them fuel oil if they give up their nuclear weapons. it turned out, they never divided by the agreement. they kept developing their nuclear capability. with he were ready a few years
7:19 am
later to celebrate this big breakthrough in diplomacy with north korea. they were reminded by then secretary of defense bill cohen and chairman of the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff that it is not just nuclear weapons with korea. they have chemical and biological and lots of missiles and they can reign destruction down on south korea and a lot of allied facilities in the region. there is a lot more to worry about than the nukes. the same thing is true in iraq. they sponsor state terrorism. they are doing lots of activities in the region whether it is syria or lebanon or yemen. they are iraq. they are very very active in not a helpful way, not as a positive international actor. the nuclear part is a piece of it. there is a lot more they should be held accountable for. >> general, great to have you on the program. thank you. general richard myers joining us. from the mideast to asia
7:20 am
she is a major player in one of the world's most powerful economies. one of china's most successful real estate moguls, sje jeng as we look ahead. kaboom... well, i just have a few other questions. >>chuck, the only other question you need to ask is, "what else can you do for me?" i'll just take a water... get your credit swagger on. become a member of experian credit tracker and find out your fico score powered by experian. fico scores are used in 90% of credit decisions.

7:23 am
♪ sleep train ♪ ♪ your ticket to a better night's sleep ♪ china's economy has gun to slow down from the peak levels of a few years ago statement as the stock market has gun to heat up. a lot of money moving into chinese stocks. i want to talk about that with my next guest. zhang xin. the co-founder of china's largest property developer with 60 million square feet developed in beijing and shanghai. thanks so much for being with us. >> good morning.
7:24 am
>> let me ask you, first, about what you are seeing in china in terms of the economy. we know the growth has slowed down. is it the engine of growth for the world it was just a few years ago. >> it still is the main engine of growth for the world but it is certainly also slowing down. we are used to seeing double digit growth. the days of 14% gdp growth and now last year it is wa 7.5 and now they are forecasting 7%. i say it is 6.5%. so still, a remarkable growth. it is certainly slowing. >> i want to ask you about the u.s. and what you are seeing here. i know you invested in the g.m. building in new york park avenue plaza in new york. where else are you looking at investing on a personal level or at soho china in terms of opportunities? >> we've looked at the u.s. real estate when the financial crisis
7:25 am
hit. >> back in '08? >> it was good timing. then we saw a lot of value in these top quality assets. today, the prices are high because of not just in the united states and europe and asia all the government printing money. the money is easily flowing into the best quality assets. manhattan's best iconic building certainly attracts the most money. pricingwise, it is very very high. while the u.s. economy is still growing at 2.5%. in europe we are seeing prices just as high. the economy is not even growing as much. >> do you think it is partly because of the strong dollar. is that what is doing it in the u.s.? >> it is also the strong dollar. the strong dollar is propelled by growth and also the q.e. >> what is it going to take to get you more interested? a big selloff? >> do you think we are going to
7:26 am
see prices come down? >> i don't see that either. there is so much money floating there. they are not going to other areas. they are going to -- a lot of money chasing after a few assets. it is not like assets across the board are growing as much in pricing but the top ones grow a lot higher. the price has gone up a lot more than the average ones. so i think that will continue to be the case. when you are borrowing rate is so low, people borrow to buy buildings and little return from the buildings is good enough. >> you have this amazing seat front row seat in china even when you were a young girl growing up under mao. how have things changed? >> a lot. we grew up with nothing under mao. we all had very little. we all dressed the same. we spoke the same language.
7:27 am
those were the days. so really the last 20 years is where we saw everything change. we dressed differently, spoke differently, lived differently. you see chinese travel around the world. you probably see chinese coming to america to shop a lot. years ago, we had none of that. >> you have also seen increasing numbers in terms of women billionaires women independents women freedom. characterize that for us? you, yourself have been able to become this incredibly successful business woman globally. >> well interesting enough it is mao, a lot of bad things bad said about him behe liberated women. he said women can raise half the sky. growing up i see my mother my mother's friends. they don't work. men and women earned the same dressed the same looked the same. one thing was that there was always a defense of everybody
7:28 am
works. so there is no such thing as women don't go out to work and stay at home. i think that continues. that trend continues with china's open doors. women naturally find more space in private sectors. that's why you see a lot of self-made successful business women. >> it is really impressive. zhang, great to talk but. thanks for joining us. up next hillary clinton breaks her silence over a series of recent scandals and going on the record. are these controversies doing anything to stop her momentum. the panelists will begin here as we look ahead on "sunday morning futures." stay with us. kid: hey dad, who was that man? dad: he's our broker. he helps looks after all our money. kid: do you pay him? dad: of course. kid: how much? dad: i don't know exactly. kid: what if you're not happy? does he have to pay you back? dad: nope. kid: why not?
7:29 am
dad: it doesn't work that way. kid: why not? vo: are you asking enough questions about the way your wealth is managed? wealth management at charles schwab i'd rather do anything else than sit at a dealership. it's a lot of haggling and it takes so long. craig's experience is completely different than mine. yeah. yes, mike has used truecar. at truecar, we'll show you how much others paid for the car you want and how much you should.

7:32 am
this is a fox news alert. i'm arthel neville. new information on the protest in cleveland. following the acquittal of police officer in the shooting death of two unarmed black suspects in 2012. the chief of police saying a short time ago that 71 people have been arrested overnight bebecause they quote, crossed the line. most of the protests have been very peaceful. after the verdict was announced yesterday. a startling assessment made by defense secretary ash carter on iraq's armed forces. he says they show no will to fight during the fall of ramadi last week, adding that the s is trying to encourage them to
7:33 am
engage isis more directly. government troops and allied militia say they are planning a counter offensive to take back ramadi. i'm arthel neville, i'll see you again at noon eastern alongside greg jarrett. welcome back. it finally happened after 28 days. some 40 150 minutes, hillary clinton finally took questions from the press. the former secretary of state and democratic presidential candidate shrugging off a few questions. she insisted they are roux he leased as well as foreign donations to the clinton foundation. despite the recent scandals mrs. clinton does not seem to be using steam, traveling to iowa, new hampshire and chicago, illinois last week. we want to bring in our panel, former adviser to president
7:34 am
reagan judith miller at the manhattan research center and meekle goodwin is with us columnist for the "new york post." all three are fox news contributors. >> two pultizer prize winners on the stage. >> what did you think about hillary? i didn't like how she handled ed henry. >> five questions is not a press conference. she has been in this race for 30 45 days. she has not talked to a major reporter one-on-one. she is basically ducking and dodging. i wouldn't call this a press conference. >> is it working for her? >> it is working monday democrats. it is the independents she is losing and it is affecting her superpac money. the expectations of what she raised are way below what she is raising. she has only $5 million in hard commitments. >> so then it is not working? >> i don't think it is working at the level she needs it to work. >> what do you think, michael? >> i think she has been hiding from the press because she feels
7:35 am
that the press is too tough on her. therefore, she will have these canned scripted where the press photographs her sitting with ordinary iowan voters but they are always hand-picked. it does work in which the headlines, where she speaks not what she said but just that she answered questions. quickly, on the e-mail release, of course she wants them released. she sanitized them. the once she deleted are probably the more interesting once. >> i find this extraordinary. it is not just about her talking to the press about the e-mail scandal, about the clinton foundation and donations there and conflicts of interest. it is about what is her feeling about isis? what would she do with with adimir putin in russia? >> what about the economic story of the united states the entitlements? >> the most fundamental question is why is she running? what am i going to do that is different than my husband or the
7:36 am
present president did? what is my vision for the future? if you don't have an agenda you are not going to be very effective. >> i think she thinks she has lots of time to do that. she is alone. all of the questions are going to be really directed at her. she wants to spread things out to keep a little drama. >> you think she will answer these questions. >> eventually. >> she just feels like she has the time to do it? >> exactly. >> also the entitlement sense of her campaign she is going to be the nominee. she is a celebrity. she doesn't have to behave in the way a normal candidate does. let the others deal with the issues. it is me. i am here. i show up. i wave and i make news. >> angelina jolie of pol tex? >> meanwhile, martin o'malley says he will announce he is going to be running. he is going to announce at the end of the month apparently? is that going to take any bloom off the rose here? >> he is a very capable governor. he was the mayor of baltimore for eight years. a lot of issues he could talk about. he will not be a viable candidate. he is very much in the clinton
7:37 am
camp. maybe he is running for vice-president. i think the key thing here as we talked on the show six democrat debates. she is going to have to stand up there with bernie sanders, who is so far to the left he is a socialist, obviously, jim webb a very serious military guy. and o'malley. a lot of issues she will be debating on and she is not a great debater. >> i am thinking who are the debaters. i know you just named them. these guys have courage going in the field against her. i don't know the demings are going to like that. >> he raised $1800 in speeches for bernie sanders as opposed to the clintons $25 million. >> all my new york friends can vote for them. >> that would be good. >> maybe he can be mayor of new york. >> could be. this field, let's talk about this field for a second. you have got hillary in one corner and you have a whole host in the gop corner.
7:38 am
is it too many again, and will the gop basically trip over themselves because of that? >> that potential is there. there are several serious candidates. governor kasich was in new york talking to people was on fox the other night, met with people around here. he will be a very serious candidate if he gets in and he is thinking in terms of if he can raise the money? this is a guy chairman of the budget committee, 16 years in the armed services committee. he is probably the most capable republican that we have in all facets. governor perry will emerge in spite of his brain freeze he said last time. the problem is our debates are going to be narrowed to ten. we have 20 running and the donald trumps of the world will be in those debates and some of the serious people mae not be in the serious stage. >> how do you think it plays out? >> too much of a good thing. a lot of good solid candidates in this group. there are just too many. this idea of cutting them down for the debates is sure to cause
7:39 am
lots of controversy, sure to be a self-fulfilling prophecies as to who will emerge as to some strength? it is a problem ta will givehat will give hillary a vantage for a long time. >> the question is who will face-off with hillary clinton? the gop field of 2016 candidates set to expand over the next couple of weeks. our panel looking at that as well as this big data dump. what did we learn with osama ben lad ladin from all the information collected? that's next on "sunday morning futures." this is humira. this is humira helping to relieve my pain and protect my joints from further damage. this is humira giving me new perspective. doctors have been prescribing humira for ten years. humira works for many adults. it targets and helps to block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to ra symptoms. humira can lower your ability to fight

online and on the usaa app. mark and alissa anderson recently signed a 30-year mortgage on this home. they must be confident about the future. are you? buy in. quickenloans/home buy. refi. power. what up wheels! mr. auto-mo-deal! hey, it's the wheel deal! hey, hey, the duke of deals! i know a few guys in the rental car biz. let's go, 'wheels'. rental car deals up to 40% off. welcome back. those running for the white house stands at section. ten others are exploring the opportunity. who is the best position to take the nomination? we bring back ed rollins, judy miller and michael goodwin.
7:43 am
what do you think? >> a year from now, when it is may of next year i will be able to tell you exactly. at this point in time i think there are five or six very serious people in this race. you can't count bush out in spite of the fact he has had a lousy couple of weeks. he will have an enormous sum of money. the game is going to get over quick. california new york new jersey that don't traditionally matter in the nominating process this time can matter. they are late. at the end of the game you may need to get that. the crowded field is going to keep anybody early on from being a winner. >> the question now to all candidates and the media is would you have gone into iraq if you knew now what we -- if you knew then what we now know? the other question to ask hillary, is should we have pulled out of iraq 100% now that we know that isis has taken control and taken all the american weaponry? >> that's the nightmare question
7:44 am
for her and an easier question for someone like rubio who distinguished himself this week by defending jeb bush and saying he just misheard the question. of course he was right in terms of his answer. i think that's a good place for rubio to be. i think it will be very hard for hillary clinton to say what we all know now, which is clearly the decision to pull out totally was catastrophic. >> it really was. there are questions for hillary around benghazi which will likely come up. do you agree with ed on the 2016 field, in terms of who might be the real runner up? >> sure sure. i think there are a number who will survive the first four primaries. the caucus in iowa and three primaries. i think it will still be a manageable field going forward after that. just to the impact of benghazi and isis and all of that look i think they are going to be bad foreign policy headlines for the next -- until the election with
7:45 am
china, russia of course. the islamic state. i think that she is going to have a lot to answer for during that time. for the republicans, it is kind of a free shot. she is part of the obama administration. she is seeking effectively a third term. this is a huge burden on her all the way through. >> look this past week obviously, we got this huge data dump. we know now that isis is controlling 50% of syria. they have taken ramadi and so now we get all of this information that they have been sitting on for three years about osama bin laden. what did we learn? >> we have learned a lot about him. the most important thing i learned was how absolutely operational he was. we are all talking about what he read. what interested me was that he even gave instructions suches ado not pay advances on salaries to al qaeda people. he was deeply in the weeds in terms of managing this very top-town but decentralized
7:46 am
organization. i think we have taken our eyes off of al qaeda. it too has gained territory in iraq and syria. >> obsessed with attacking america. >> he said don't grab turf don't create states. go after america. america is the enemy. attack their embassies and their communities. my sense is that isis now is collecting turf and it is going to be very hard in spite of the administration's promise, the marines and u.s. army took the biggest hits the first time they went in the battle ten years ago to regain this province. we had 12,000-15,000 troops there that we were the best fighting men. it was a 6, 8-week battle. that isn't going to happen again. isis is going to control that for a long time. i think they are going to continue to expand. >> we have been doing these air strikes since last year november october. without coordination on the ground. mike baker from the cia has said, earlier, we can't have just air strikes alone. so even though we continue to hear different advice from the

president, he is not listening. >> i saw a headline, administration to review isis strategy. what is the strategy? do we even have one? if you go back to when this began, it was essentially over the decapitation on video over americans. until that moment americans wanted nothing to do with it. overnight, the poll slipped. i think president obama has done the minimum necessary to give the public the impression he is doing something. it is more of a political strategy than a military. >> he likes to push the button on the drones. as we saw with former c.i.a. director gates saying with he don't have any strategy. jack king whom we all love was right there at the beginning, said the disaster would have passed today. in my sense, it will continue to be a disaster. the air strikes, wait for a sandstorm and then attack. >> the place where one-third of american forces fought and died to fall so easily into isis
7:48 am
hands is truly heartbreaking and disgraceful for the administration. >> that is ramadi. >> we take a short break and return to politics. what is different this time around that is giving republicans some confidence? what are the polls saying right now? plus is a big are field better? so far, the only democrats are hillary clinton and senator bernie sanders. we'll break down the numbers. we're looking ahead on "sunday morning futures." let's take a look at your credit. >>i know i have a 786 fico score, thanks to all the tools and help on so how are we going to sweeten this deal? floor mats... clear coats... >>you're getting warmer... leather seats... >>and this... my wife bought me that. get your credit swagger on. become a member of experian credit tracker and find out your fico score powered by experian. fico scores are used in 90% of credit decisions.

at old dominion, we see freight... a combination of products and customers. every on-time arrival is backed by thousands of od employees, ...who make sure the millions of products we ship arrive without damages. because od employees treat customer service... our most important delivery. od. helping the world keep promises. my name is jamir dixon and i'm a locate and mark fieldman for pg&e. most people in the community recognize the blue trucks as pg&e. my truck is something new... it's an 811 truck. when you call 811, i come out to your house and i mark out our gas lines and our electric lines to make sure that you don't hit them when you're digging. 811 is a free service. i'm passionate about it because every time i go on the street i think about my own kids. they're the reason that i want to protect our community and our environment, and if me driving a that truck means that somebody gets to go home safer, then i'll drive it
7:50 am
every day of the week. together, we're building a better california.
7:51 am
welcome back. new polling numbers out showing while the gop field may be crowded, overall voters seem to feel satisfied.
7:52 am
57% of the group is passositive. we're back with our panel, ed and judy. >> first of all, you've got governors that have been elected in big states and blue states. you have young, dynamic senators. i think the party has a great great feel. the problem is narrowing it down and giving voter as chance to vote on it. governor perry wildly known in texas but not throughout the country. they'll get noticed as the campaign goes on. >> i think one of the crucial questions at the end of this is enthusiasm. those numbers are fine but not great, 57%. of course if the nominee is a centrist you're going to lose some of the conservative enthusiasm and vice versa. so i think that is going to be the ultimate test for the
7:53 am
general election. >> i think this is starting so early that these numbers -- >> change a lot? >> exactly. and they don't mean very much. >> what about the numbers on the democrat side? it seems like the clinton foundation has had some impact. by the way, the clinton foundation you know i've been there, you know interviewed tons of people there and it's not about necessarily cgi, clinton global initiative. it's more about the fact that she was secretary of state and whether or not policy decisions were changed. >> the question of a quid pro quo for the donations, the speeches technically when she was secretary of state. i think for her, the fundamental issue is a sense of trustworthiness and polls have shown repeatedly across the country that a majority or near a majority in all of the key swing states do not trust her, do not think she's honest. that's a very hard decline and we see it in her national negatives. they are about equal with her
7:54 am
national positives. these are fundamental questions about her authenticity that i think she's going to have to change. >> what do you think, ed? >> i don't think there's a strong democrat that can beat her. i think she can beat herself. i think if this continues, the foundation is not out raising money but there will be an impact and they've done great and meaningful things but it's been a slush fund for the clinton boots that have been out there. >> uh-huh. >> and i think o'malley's entrance into the race is a bet that at some point she's going to falter just as she did the last time when obama beat her unexpectedly. >> the fact is judy you know you wouldn't see anybody else entering the race because that's -- the democrats stick together. that's the difference. >> you've got one. >> you've got one.
7:55 am
bernie sanders. >> he loves him. >> i do. john kerry is desperate to run for president again and it could be a health issue, a variety of things. john kerry will step in. i promise you that. >> he's not going to do it now? >> no. no. >> everything for his popularity is right on that iran deal. >> right. >> that's going to make or break. >> and that deal is in bigger trouble this week than the previous weeks as the ayatollah digs in and stacks up the number of conditions and things he won't accept it's going to be very hard for the administration to pull this off. >> let's not forget it's not just about the u.s. will a deal go through even if ayatollah says look no inspectors in my country? >> look i think that joe biden and john kerry, president, have made some promises. inspections anywhere anytime. i don't see how he gets out of
7:56 am
that. or he says there will be no deal.
7:57 am
7:58 am
7:59 am
we're back with our panel. the one big thing to look at the week ahead. >> the trade deal is going to be up to nancy pelosi. is she going to do what her members want which is kill it or do what the president wants, try and get it through? >> i'm a journalist an independent journalist so i'm watching jason rezay on his trial in tehran which opens this coming week and "the washington post" executive editor is pleading for a visa so he or someone from the paper can go and watch. >> that's interesting. go ahead, michael. >> i'm all for the continuing investigation into the clinton foundation. i think all the major news organizations are looking closely. they've all got teams working on this. >> yeah. >> somewhere, if there is a mother load i think it changes the dynamics of the race.
8:00 am
>> i'm watching the gdp report out on friday. that is it for "sunday morning futures." thank you for watching. i'm maria bartiromo. on "media buzz" this sunday reporters fail to pin her down on issues regarding the clinton foundation to her private e-mail to her personal wealth. >> was there conflict of interest in your giving paid speeches in the run-up to you aunited states noing you're running for president? >> the answer to the question is no. >> why was it so easy for her to finesse that question? and what about the benghazi e-mails that was first leaked to "the new york times"? as isis captures ramadi much of the media debate is focused on finger pointing. and the brutal truth is that the obama administration and
