act on its promises and secretary clinton has been meeting with british official, set to meet with british prime minister gordon brown at this hour and travels to ireland later today. in colorado, snow, rain, and ice being blamed for dozens of car accidents, including this 50-car pileup. that's 5-0 near colorado springs. one person was critically injured. several others were taken to the hospital with nonlife threatening injuries. meanwhile, about two inches of snow fell in the denver area and causing cars to slip and slide all over the place. oh, seems premature for this weather to me. and standing by with a look at the weather. >> hey, it is premature and these are record breaking towards, not just breaking records by a degree or two, but by about 12 or 13 degrees, temps that may be a prior record in denver. the low cast 25 and now 14 so brutally cold and we're still there. 24 right now in denver and this entire area of the
7:06 am
rockies is going to remain cold this week. the cold is going to slide off to the east and much of the eastern part of the country is going to be seeing the lowest temperatures you've seen in a long time and let's move forward and look at the salt radar picture. couple things going on pt. kind of quiet right now, but expect to go see a now little storm to develop in the northern part of the rockies and see snow to the north of denver and clayton, your game didn't happen yesterday. >> i know, 9:30 last night postponed because of snow. >> and it was 24 degrees. >> it was a good thing. >> yeah. >> this'll probably get it in today, but the snow is going to be north and develop and move farther off to the north and forward across the southeast and did not see the rain this morning, but see and reinvague rate that this morn afternoon. as we move to the west, we are going to have a big storm and fire season across northern california, that's going to change by tuesday, six to eight inches of rain, maybe three or four feet of snow
7:07 am
across the higher elevations. >> you're tired already? >> you need a nap? put him in to sleep. >> mike in addition to being a fantastic television host is thinking about becoming an airline pilot. he can now sleep on the job if the unions get their way. a new movement afoot to let pilots sleep. >> napping may be okay. do you want your pilots to be napping while they're flying. >> not really. >> the pilots union and airlines are pushing the f.a.a. to make it okay to take naps. and this is when you're on a plane that has another pilot and an autopilot, that third pilot thing that they could take cat naps. >> the second pilot in case the autopilot malfunctionings, you'd want someone to be asleep-- awake at the wheel and the f.a.a. strictly forbids this policy right now. you're not allowed as a pilot here in the states to nap.
7:08 am
however, it is happening. >> oh, yeah. they determine that pilots are doing this so that they can cover themselves on the head sets, they use codes. they say, i'm going to take a moment to meditate now. >> what's wrong with in? this? >> british airways do it. >> yes. >> they have one of the best records and qantas airlines does one of the best records. >> and the idea that pilots are flying the planes in mid flight is ridiculous, the only time they're flying them is upon takeoff and landing and the rest it's all in auto pilots. >> i know, it's the feeling that i would prefer on my flights for the passengers to be able to sleep and the pilots to be alert. >> it is. >> just a cat nap. it says that they were going to be more alert if they take that nap they'll be more alert, but this would be the horrifying-- we're thinking about this. all the of a sudden, oh, the guy wakes up. what's wrong? why are the buzzers going off. >> and accidentally hits the throttle. >> it seems like it's going to
7:09 am
get done. >> we are going to talk to a poolt later and he's background to weigh in on this. >> let us know what you think on the blog at fox and or twitter. >> talk about 401(k)'s, fell 30.5% between 2007 and 2008 and mostly fell among people in their 30's and 40's and we have nicole petallides from fox business here to weigh in. hi, nicole. >> what do you think about the cat nap? >> nice to meet you. >> great to meet you. hi, guys. >> how are you guys, good morning. >> so, everybody is nervous when they open up their envelope about the 401(k) every month and some people think we shouldn't be putting anymore min in as a result. >> you open yours? >> i think a lot of people just stopped opening them altogether. because really, i mean, remember, when the dow was the at 14,000. >> right. >> went down to 6500, right,
7:10 am
so we certainly had a big hit and now we're back approaching that 10,000 mark, we've come off the lows which is great, but everybody's net worth is down from what they had and there's a real disparity between what the difference is between people in their 20's versus those in 30's and 40's. >> why is that? >> that's because in the 30's-- people in their 30's and 40's lost the most and give you the percentage terms actually. people in 30's and 40's lost 26% which was the most nvenlts yus the year of 2008. >> right, this is versus those who lost 18% in the younger generation. people in their 30's 40's had larger balances, more in equities because they're now they're working, making money, but they're not contributing as much so they had higher amounts in equities because you know, you have to know what your risk tolerance is, you know, what your risk tolerance is. it's funny as the market was crashing no one used risk tolerance anymore, because everybody wanted to get out
7:11 am
and get it in cash and now they're trying to get a taste of what the risk tolerance is. >> if we're in our 30's or 40's and you're sitting there saying, tough times, should i put more in my 401(k) at this point or pull money out of it. >> don't pull money out. to start pulling money out is probably not a good idea. >> lower your match rate. >> i'm still a big believer in matching programs and all of these things because they accrue and add up and when you're older they add up, but i think your asset allocation between cash, fixed income like bonds or equities, a lot of people have more than 50% in equities. so, it depends, are you willing to take the risk and also, do you have it in specific stocks versus funds? you know, you may want to play the market in a safer way and buy a fund that tracks your index. >> that's what i did. >> it's a good way to do it it's less poifl. >> with the dow almost reaching 10,000 it's safe to
7:12 am
creep back into my 401(k) and take a look? >> do you have a crystal ball? because you is it safe? over time it shows that all of these things will add up and even over the five years, you know, you had a good year and talk about the good year in 2003 and then we've pulled back after that. so, i mean, in the end, it balances out. it's what your length of time is. so, if you're in your 30's and 40's and you're willing to take the risk it's great, but it's very tough to some mack when you get those envelopes and you open them up and see that you're down. >> sure, of course if you're in your 50's and 60's you may want to stay in cash so you don't see all the losses. >> or something that you can get some interest to it. something that can accrue interest. >> and i'm worried now about turning 30. >> oh, do we get an invitation to your party? >> nicole, stick around. >> it's not as bad as people think. >> nicole is sticking around and we'll talk with her more. >> president obama is pushing
7:13 am
for more department of the power against wall street that he says will help main street. will the government plans really help you and us or end up back firing? >> plus, a controversial plan to keep the teens safe. why the critics say randomly issuing breathalyzer tests in school, we will have a debate coming up. ♪ . rewrite your hair's past and give it a whole new life. new aveeno nourish plus. active naturals wheat formulas proven to target and help repair damage in just three washes. - building shiny, strong... - hair with life. announcer: new aveeno nourish plus.

7:15 am
7:16 am
>> new consumer financial protection agency that i've asked congress to create will have just one mission, to look out for the financial interests of ordinary americans. >> that was president obama at the white house on friday, pushing for more government power in the form of a new federal watch dog agency to oversee mortgages, credit cards and other financial products. wall street is resisting the move and "the washington post" says our commander-in-chief is using a quote, bully pulpit to get what he wants, but the president says this will protect consumers like you and me. is he right, nicole is back with us, is he right? >> yeah, good question. you know, i could tell you
7:17 am
everybody on wall street, what they don't want is more regulation, gep, i like how they say bully pull bit and that was-- more people would say, getting the people to do the jobs as oppose today yet another agency. talking about the consumer protection financial agency, right? and this is supposed to protect consumers. as he makes more legislation, it ends up costing the companies more and in turn when it costs the credit card companies, for example, more, then who pays for it? the consumers. >> true, but can we trust, what, is there any indication that we can trust wall street to and credit card companies regulate themselves? they've proved in the past that they won't. >> i think you can. i'm still a believer in wall street. i think there's still plenty of regulation and i think that they are protecting the consumers and they do have the legislation in place, i think, that these consumers, i think you're okay with these companies, i really do. i don't think that you need more czars and more oversight and more regulation, i think
7:18 am
that the rates have gone up recently, i think that people have felt that. i think that consumer spending has gone down. i mean, you know, it's different when you go to a store and you have your credit card and you go to buy a $200 pair of jeans, $300 pair of jeans, people do, people i know do. >> wow. >>, but when you have to take the money out of your wallet in cash now it's a different picture. so i think what they're doing, they have the default rates for people who default on credit cards those are the ones that are going to jump up. and what the obama administration has done has been protecting consumers from jumping mortgage rates where you have affordable mortgage and blink and now it's unaffordable. >> why weren't chambers of commerce across america be opposed to if this? >> why would they be opposed? >> hurts business? >> the product tonight make as much money. someone like dick bove, wrote
7:19 am
me a note. they'll force prices higher higher. keep people away from downtown and the stores. >> it's about the consumer, the consumer was spending and spending and now the consumer is not spending and i think that more regulation is not necessarily the key. >> here is a statement from the chambers of commerce around america. we will work with the administration and congress to protect consumers by strengthening the financial system and advancing our economic recovery. however, this agency, the cfpa, is the wrong approach to solving this problem. the proposed cfpa will exacerbate the weaknesses of the current system that clearly failed, restrict access it credit and make it more costly for consumer and businesses ab there's the rub. more costs to consumer and businesses. >> see that, exactly what we're saying. and the product costs more so they definitely are not-- they don't like this at all and the products that they have, these financial products are going to cost more and
7:20 am
that in turn gets to you and i, the consumers and you don't want that. take your time. what does everything have to be a rush. >> that's the thing, it's not at that they're good ideas? >> why the rush? they're screaming for me to get in this segment. >> and thank you, to clayton and aly and spending time alone on the couch. >> i know, this is fun. so, we have that last night. >> and human resources-- . i tried a white russian and gave it back. i took one sip, one sip. >> just drop the mic, thanks. >> there you go. >> more "fox & friends" when we come back. >> more on don't ask, don't tell.
7:21 am
7:22 am
7:23 am
7:24 am
>> we are moving ahead on don't ask, don't tell. we should not be punishing patriotic americans who step forward to ser this have country and celebrating the willingness to show such courage and selflessness on behalf of fellow citizens. >> that was president obama promising that he will end the long stamping don't ask, don't tell policy in the military. the president made the comments last night during a speech to the human rights campaign after coming under criticism recently by people in the gay community who feel the president is not living up to his campaign promises to fight for their rights. the president didn't offer a time line or specifics. >> so is the president taking on too much at once in an effort to please everyone? rick santorum is known for traditional values so we'll ask him this morning, what does he make of all of this. nice to see you. >> good morning, clayton, how are you. ail doing well. >> you heard what the president said. why should we be punishing patriotic americans who want
7:25 am
to stand up and fight for freedom? did you hear anything premic in the president's message last night? >> well, i mean, i would just say that this is a policy put in place by bill clinton. this was a policy that takes into consideration a lot of the problems associated with having you know, gays in the military and this is-- was a compromise that was fully support bide president clinton and democrats in congress, and has actually worked very, very well. i don't know why-- other than to appease a special interest group, i really don't know why the president wants to change it. i mean, he said the same thing last night, also, about the defense of marriage act, which was another clinton era piece of legislation that was designed to make sure that states were not forced to recognize same sex unions from other states. this was a states rights issuement again, supported by bill clinton, supported by a majority of those in congress and the interesting thing is, he hasn't done any of this yet
7:26 am
and i think the point is he hasn't done it because he's got bigger fish to fry right now than those two issues and he's trying to focus on health care and cap and trade and other things that are higher priority agendas for him. >> let's talk about that time line since he vowed again last night to end the don't ask, don't tell policy, how complicated is that, to repeal something? >> well, that's-- that's going to take a lot of work, it's going to take cooperation with the congress which again he's not going to want to go to congress with something this controversial, even within his own party. there are conservative and moderate democrats, who will not approve with what the president is going to do. the votes for for the health care bill. they have to get the votes for the cap and trade bill and again, he's focused on what i think he believes are higher priority issues receipt now. i don't disagree with him. and he can't go to the human rights campaign and he's going to fight for them. he's going to fight for them when the time is right, which is not right now. >> the president didn't layout
7:27 am
a time line and specifics last night in pennsylvania. rick santorum, always nice to see you, thanks for joining us. >> you bet. >> here is a story that you heard the first time on "fox & friends," a struggle to get his son back from the italian social services and now the italian courts are about to make a big decision on the fate of eight-year-old liam mccartie, we'll talk to them coming up. >> we have the coldest temperatures we've had across the parts of the rockies and the cold era moving east and we'll talk about that coming up. stay with us. ♪ quality and reliability...

7:33 am
we were all appalled at the bush administration high spending, but it looks like chicken feed now compared to the outrageous printing of the money that the obama team is running right now. >> yeah, and listen to rick reichmuth last night and it's so cold, coldest temperatures in history or something, it's just proof there's global warming. >> there's global climate change. leadi leading scientists agree that carbon emissions, and polar ice caps are melting, clinton. >> clayton. >> a lot it drink. >> i hit the global warming change hoax, look global warming is man made, it's a ridiculous hoax that brilliantly pulled the wool over the world's eyes. this is a tremendous app, actually and 250 responses. >> 250 talking points and there's tons of responses,

in italy. his condition seems to have deteriorated. in fact, we have a report here from the u.s. embassy in rome of their latest visit with liam. they appointed a guardian to visit liam. let me read you an excerpt from what they said. this was just in september. the visit was a difficult one from the start as liam initially refused to come out of his bedroom, refusing to see or talk to visitors, he was persuade today open the door by his guardian, liam was extremely upset and cried throughout the half hour visit. why don't italian authorities recognize that the child would be better back here at home with his father where he can get the help that he needs? >> well, you've got to understand italian laws. the mother is a dual citizen like i am and she has a full right as an italian citizen to maintain the son in italy, but due to the condition that the judge will decide in the father's case to bring the son back here to the states.
7:47 am
that's up to the judge because italian law is what it is and say again, the mother is an italian citizen and every right, but based on what you said that they say she's unstable, that's up to the judge to make that decision. my role as an eye member of the italian parliament, i can facilitate some visits and make sure she has the proper representation. >> speaking of the mother, fred, as you know, she was deemed mentally unfit. >> she was. >> and unstable by the italian courts and liam taken away from her and she is wanted here in the u.s. by the fbi and the interpol for abducting liam in the first place, but yet, the court may give liam back to her this week? >> they may, now what? they've had this child for two years, italian social services had him for two years, this fact is beyond dispute. he was a happy and well adjusted boy, why not give him back to his father.
7:48 am
he'll lift the travel restrictions and help get the warrant undone. give italian social services-- >> i'm sorry, u.s. social services and a father to give back an opportunity for his son. he's got to come back now, ka peesh. he's got to act. >> we're italian americans, surely, italians are big hearted enough to recognize that the father must play a role if his son's life. is there any possibility that you as a member of parliament could do something to help liam be reunited with his father back at home? >> my role as i said earlier, what i can do to help to facilitate, and the right, proper representation from an attorney in italy. what i can do is make a plea on behalf of the father and the child. >> and will you do that this week. >> that would be my pleasure. i'll be back to rome tuesday and personally make that appeal. >> thank you. i know that would be very
7:49 am
comforting to michael mccarty. please tell us know what happens with liam in italy. thank you for coming up on with the update. >> thank you very much. >> still on "fox & friends," separating fact from fiction when it comes to the swine flu. stick around mr. brardy. we're not doing yet. what you can do to protect yourself and your kids straight ahead. wow, is this... fiber one honey clusters? yes. but it can't have... can't have about half a day's worth of fiber? i assure you it does. i can only taste... only taste the crunchy clusters, honey, and brown sugar. no madam, i don't have esp.

>> welcome back. students in massachusetts may soon be subject to random breathalyzer tests during the school day at school and while many see it as a smart move to crack down on underage drinking, others are outraged and say it's invasion of privacy. for a fair and balanced debate i'm joined by an advocate of the test.
7:53 am
her daughter taylor died after wandering away from an underage drinking party. and kathy, first off, i'm sorry for your loss. kathy, explain to us, what these breathalyzer tests, exactly how would it work. who would be administered to? would we have to see or smell alcohol or see some stumbling by a student before we give them the test? >> yes, it's not something that they're just going to randomly grabbing every 10th child to do. it's something there's a suspicious that they have the need to do. >> why do you think it's a good idea, kathy. >> my daughter, to give a perfect example, as i say i'm only an expert here as a mom. by no means an expert in this field, but with taylor's circumstance she was at the homecoming game last year, a week from this sunday and she had been obviously drunk at that football game and spoke to teachers, spoke to assistant principals and in her case, nobody did anything, maybe they didn't do anything because they didn't have the capabilities to be able to
7:54 am
prove it at that point and they live with that every day, so, i feel it's something that you know-- you wish they would have given her a breathalyzer test. >> absolutely. >> i wish they could have given her the breathalyzer test and i'm sure when they wake up in the morning they wish they had that. >> jennifer, you know, sound like a pretty good idea we'll know for sure if somebody is drunk or not. >> a little bit of false hope here. we need to identify the children who are drinking in school. who are drinking at after school activities through education and through counseling, doing random tests or tests under suspicion is giving false hope here is here is why. >> we need to target these teens when they're leaving the house, parents need to be educated. the kids need to be educated. i fear that the kids are going to act up even more where there's a will there's a way. if they're trying to get drunk at school. instead of drunk they'll get high. a substance more harmful to them.
7:55 am
i think this is putting a really band, a bandaid on the system and not doing justice to the children or the parents. >> do you think just because there would be a breathalyzer, a possibility of a breathalyzer test that would drive them to drugs, why do you think that? >> because obviously, the kids know that they could have the possibility of being tested for alcohol in their breath. if they are really trying to intoxicate themselves during school hours or during activities, they will still find a way to get around that system. teens are smart and they can outwitt the best of the adults. what's going to happen next. >> sorry, jennifer. kathy, what do you think. >> that's okay. >> the fact that she said that something would be worse than alcohol, if alcohol was tested these days it would be considered an illegal substantial. it is an illegal substance with students drinking, obviously, under 21, there's a limit for a reason. i don't believe that students would pick up drugs over alcohol if that was their
7:56 am
choice to begin with. >> that's not true. and they're looking in their parents cabinets and looking in parents medicine chest, they're taking marijuana could be doing ecstacy, a host of things that kids can consume in order to reach that high and mask their breath, mask the alcohol in their r breath. >> kathy, take it up a notch then. if we are going to believe jennifer's statement and point of view, how about drug testing along with a breathalyzer test. >> absolutely. i mean, anything that you can do to keep your kids safe is what we have to do and if they have something in their hands that they know that they can test that something is happening, it's a risk that you take not being able to clarify it and i just don't understand how-- >> we can't fill the society. >> jen, go ahead. >> we already have big brother, we already have big brother enough. we cannot build a society of teens who are trying to teach to be responsible and respectful and at every turn give them urinalysis, a blood
7:57 am
test, breathalyzer test. this is ridiculous, at some point in time, parents must take, with all due respect, i feel for you, we have to build our society to be strong and not base it on tests. >> jennifer, thank you, and kathy thank you for being with us and again, sorry about taylor, clayton. >> thank you very much. >> thanks, mike, coming up on the show, president obama sounds pretty confident about passing health care reform, but he still may have some reasons to be concerned. we're going to take a closer look at that coming up. plus, jon and kate are headed back to court next week, the latest details and lessons you can learn from their nasty divorce. look at this. look who is in our green room. los lonely boys are here and we'll listen to great music from their new album coming up. quality and reliability...

>> >> what's remarkable is not that we've had a spirited debate about health insurance reform, but the unprecedented concensus that has come together behind it. this concensus encompasses everyone from doctors and nurses to hospitals and drug manufacturers. . >> president obama making new comments about this weekend about health care reform. trying to convince the american people that the tide is turning in his favor, but was everything he said
8:15 am
accurate? joining me now are dana perino former press secretary to president george w. bush and also radio talk show host, alan cohen, both are fox news contributors. >> how you doing? >> let's start with dana. democrats keep saying one of the big excuses the g.o.p. hasn't put forward any new ideas on this and the president seems to be hinting that everyone has a concensus, this is going to get through and everyone is on board with this. is that true? >> i don't think that-- i think it's a little premature to say that. a little like they're building a field of dreams and they believe if they built it they will come. i don't think that's true in real life especially when it comes to health care reform and in addition to that. i don't know a single republican who isn't for reform and who hasn't put forward the concensus of ideas that actually could get passed on letting people take their health care from job to job, making sure we can sell insurance across state lines and preexisting companies are in the a barrier to getting coverage. >> alan, the president seemed
8:16 am
to be hinting there's mass concensus and everyone is on board with this. >> who is everyone? >> not everyone, but a number of quotes pointing out people on board and a number of people they didn't point out and governor schwarzenegger saying it's unaffordable for states. >> we found the cbo numbers check out on the baucus plan and save money over ten years and look, you have bob dole i interviewed a couple of days ago on the radio show says we've got to do it and bill frist in the last week, he's also a physician, it seems like the people who have left the senate and elected politics are speaking more freely and openly about the real need to do this. and in fact, the poll just out said not having reform is hurting the g.o.p. so, i don't know what the debate is. >> you said you talked to bill frist and said he would vote for it and now he's saying he is he wouldn't vote for any of them. >> he says there are some he would vote for. he wasn't specific. we need reform and we're debating this.
8:17 am
don't know which it's going to go. there are those on the right who don't want this and-- >> on the alan's point can the president come out and say we don't know what the bill looks looks. >> come along with me and he believes it will materialize. one of the things that is very important if you look at bob dole, senator frist, governor schwarzenegger, and tommy thompson, you have to look at their full quotes in context and also, i don't-- alan, i think it's unfair to say that the republicans don't have any plans because they've put them out there. >> where. >> and i think that the democrats actually just say that the republicans don't have a plan because they don't actually want to debate the good plans they've put forward. >> we we be talking about this were obama not elected president and democratic senate. if this wouldn't be a push-- >> alan. >> let me finish, please,
8:18 am
please, let me finish. >> you said we never-- >> elect add new president and overwhelming democratic majority this would not be on the table. >> i absolutely disagree. >> and where was it for eight years? >> well, alan, you simply don't pay attention. >> oh, i guess thank you for informing me. >> an entire reform package-- look at the medicare prescription drug benefits that most seniors now take advantage of. we use market forces, it costs a lot less than anybody-- >> that's not reform. we're talking much more comprehensive reform. nowhere for eight years. >> america doesn't want comprehensive health care reform and certainly wasn't the reason that president obama was elected. >> one of them. >> the thing that president obama savagely attacked senator mccain for are things he's defending as a portion of his bill the g.o.p. idea. >> and one of the things the president is defending is a health care plan. here is a picture of his own doctor on "fox & friends" before and his doctor says he doesn't support this although
8:19 am
the president says nurses and doctors across the country, american medical association all on board. >> i'm glad you can find one doctor you don't agree with. >> alan, simply not believable. >> the poll i mentioned are hurting the g.o.p. the if you keep going the way you keep going frjtsdz i'm glad you feel that way. go ahead and keep doing that and electing democrats, that's what's going to happen. >> well, we are going to-- >> i hope we continue to have this conversation in 2010 because i guarantee it will be a very different conversation. >> it will be, we will have reform by then. >> we are going to continue a separate discussion between the two of you, and go to your corners. and the commander-in-chief vowing to end the "don't ask, don't tell" policy and is it time to issue th-- is it time to attack this issue? we'll be right back. %%%%%

>> welcome back here to the big show. president obama tackling a tough issue during his speech to the human rights campaign. he's promising to end don't ask don't tell, but will he be able to follow through on that promise. we're back with dana perino and alan colmes. welcome back. alan, start with you, a number of protesters outside the hall, 50 protesters holding up signs, gay rights supporters saying we want action. was this lip service last night or is the president actually going to move forward? >> i don't think he can't not move forward. he has to move forward. he had the right tone and said the right things, but he has-- where is the action? he said i'm with you in this fight, but now he's got to show that by actual action and hasn't done that. >> it looks like lip service and we'll see. he offered up no timetable. dana, i want it play the sound bite for you, where he talked about ending don't ask don't
8:24 am
tell and got a rousing applause and standing ovation and pointed out patriotism, take a listen. >> we should not be punishing patriotic americans who stepped forward to serve this country, we should be be celebrating their willingness to show such courage and selflessness on behalf of fellow citizens. especially when we're fighting two wars. >> and he brings up an interesting point, dana, we're fighting two wars and many critics said, look, aren't all americans, don't all americans have the right to fight for their freedom? was there anything wrong with the president's message last night? >> i don't-- i don't think so, i think that the military is already thinking about how to handle this and this is a policy that was put in place by president clinton and the military has wrestled with it since then. i can understand why the people in the hall were disappointed that they feel they haven't had the action they require and especially when you're talking about these two wars, in particular you look at issues like we need really good linguists and i know somebody who was asked to leave the military because she was openly gay and she was
8:25 am
a great linguist and we really needed her for our country. i don't know if there's a middle ground here. i don't second guess the military they're going to have to come to terms with tn a president obama as command ner chief can play a role in that and's going to have to decide when is the right time to do it. and the political consequences of not acting quickly enough in order to respond to the crowd last night. >> alan, you know one of the things for president clinton was the pentagon and now he has the support, president obama does, of secretary gate and also of mike mullen. what is holding this back. >> i don't know what's holding him back. maybe too cautious, i think sometimes he's too cautious because president clinton acted too quickly upon being president for don't ask don't tell. >> maybe the president might have too much on his plate and maybe something we don't need to focus on with health care
8:26 am
reform and two wars being fought? >> he certainly does have a lot on his plate, but every president has a lot on their plates, so it's a matter of priorities. >> a matter of priorities, lighting it up. and alan, when does your radio show air. >> one to ten o'clock at night, alan colmes and hear it there and about a hundred radio, armed forces radio and xm sirius radio. >> you're a trooper for coming in this earlier. dana, thank you for coming on. >> you're welcome. >> still ahead on "fox & friends," everything you need to know to protect yourself and your kids against swine flu just ahead and rick reichmuth is celebrating national pasta month. every time we have a drinking segment, a food segment. we recruit you. >> pretty soon a fat belly segment and it makes sense. hey, it's national pasta month and take a look, we've got the pastas, nice folks from ray seeny's from newark here,

archbishop john carol high school thursday and friday because they had one case, confirmed case of swine flu and two other students maybe have it. should you close whole schools? >> mike. >> do you need to? >> i think that's an overreaction. if there's so many kid getting it that the school can't operate, you close the school. if it's spreading quickly, get the kids out of them, equity them home. parents if your kids are sick or not feeling well, keep them home. that's how you spread it if you go to school if you have it and that's where the vaccines are going to work in schools. studies in japan if we vaccinate school children we cut down on deaths. that's why we've got to do. keep the kid vaccinated and keep them home if they're sick and tamiflu if they're sick. >> i want the seasonal vaccine and swine flu vaccine and i'm going to take it. some people say a flu shot gives me the flu. >> none of the injected vaccines can give you the flu, they're dead virus, do not spread the flu, you can get

8:47 am
to get over it. if you're totally healthy. 99% of cases are mild. the problem is you could spread it to someone like a pregnant woman, a child with asthma and got to think in terms of our neighbors. the problem is there's over a thousand deaths. 10,000 hospitalizations and just in the past month alone, we've got to watch it even though it's mild for people that are at greater risk. >> i wish i could read more about it somewhere. >> twitter me on it, i'm giving you daily updates. mark segal m.d. >> do you have a book. >> swine flu, the new pandemic, see you, doctor. >> she's the american college student charged with murder in italy. the judge in the amanda knox trial making a major decision over the suspected murder weapon. details and how this can change the entire trial coming up with judge janine pirro. and los lonely boys are live. you can hear them there, continue, come on. keep watching "fox & friends." ♪ ♪ i'm gonna do what i can

9:06 am
northern california. it will bring a lot of rain. it will get here by tomorrow night into tuesday. by the time we get towards thursday, most of the northern two-thirds of the state are going to see at least one to three inches of rain. some areas aches to eight-inches. that will end the fire season, at least across central and northern california. southern california will be in a risk, especially towards the san diego area. any kind of rain we can get this time of year will hopefully bring an end to the fire season. other story is this cold temperatures, broke records by around 10 to 15 degrees in some cases. all time record lows at this time of years. they feel more like january. it will move toward the east. areas across the southeast expect to see fall-like temperatures and towards the northeast, we'll be dealing with overnight lows, the coldest we've seen so far this year, and daytime highs in the 40s and 50s. the cold on its way. >> thanks.

9:08 am
when is they're leaving the house. parents need to be educated, the kids need to be educated. i fear the kids will act out more, where there is will, there is a way. >> that's a good point. it makes the kids, if you know there will be a breathizer test at your dance, does it make you act sneakier. does it make you say, do drugs that can't be detected? >> it's math class, it's in the middle of the day. it's going to class and therefore, what level do you -- i guess the question is, at what point is a pus pishes -- a suspicion, just because someone is staggering around, maybe they're acting funny, how do you know they're drunk? >> that's definitely a suspicion. something stabberring around and being disruptive, they can go to the principal's office. but if it's somebody who is a bad kid or somebody who has a history, are you going to get a
9:09 am
breathizer test and what's the harm if you do? maybe this is what it's come to. >> i don't think i would might not as a parent if they have a breathizer test at the school. can you tell that i'm drunk right now? >> can we get a test out here? >> do we need one here? >> all right. kidding, of course. >> let's talk about this, a new study about what your car may say about you. we talked about this a little earlier on the show. we wanted you to send in some of your cars. the car you're currently driving, it's not the one you first got, 'cause some of us got hand me down cars and some bought clunkers. what does your car say about you. a new study, education level, technology smarts, wealth, determine the car you drive. >> you think about guys around my age, i'm going to get a red sports car, convertible. >> right. >> yeah. >> you know what that says?
9:10 am
>> that means i'm a dufus. >> porsches says you're a successful man or woman if you drive one. >> no, no. it says you're a successful man. 87% of porsche drivers are men. not women. and guess what the median income is if you buy a par issue? >> 20? >> $390,000 a year. that's your median income. moving to honda. >> honda is interesting. i was surprised. this is a car i used to have back when i lived in california. pragmatic and well educated. thank you very much. i appreciate that. i had a honda civic. >> i had a couple hondas. >> that means you have a college degree or higher, 70% of honda owners do. >> how about ged? >> like a chevy, something like that. >> chevy says you are anti-internet. apparently 45% of chevy owners do not use the internet.
9:11 am
isn't that hilarious? >> they're anti-internet? >> these guys drive chevies? >> what do you drive? >> ford. >> ford, what's that? >> a dodge challenger. >> i don't have a car. >> ford, 45% have college degrees. >> is that right? congratulations. >> chevy people, 35% have college degrees. let's ask allison what car do you drive? >> gosh, it's embarrassing. my husband picked it. it's an suv, of course. you know, with the kids, i have the same suv that every other person with three children on earth drives. >> mike, what do you drive? >> i don't have a car. >> what does that say? >> unpredictable. >> no. i live in big city, new york and philadelphia. so it's easier to take mass transit. >> this is what i ride every

9:16 am
well, hospitals and insurance companies are playing a game of chicken, apparently as our next guest puts t. we the patients are stuck in the middle. insurers are refuse to go reimburse patients for procedures and there is nothing in the reform bills that addresses that problem. >> joining us is senior vice president of avelier health, john. >> great to see you guy. >> is there dysfunction right now in the health care system that's not being addressed by any of the bills currently moving through congress? >> well, to the matter at hand, we've clearly got challenges in figuring out how to manage a pie that will be growing slower over the next couple of years and decades if we're going to control health care spending. what plays out in some markets is battles between insurance companies and hospitals and insurance companies and doctors, insurance companies, they want to make sure they've got an affordable policy for the pizza shop down the street. the hospitals want to make sure they've got enough technology
9:17 am
that they can treat the pizza shop down the street. this is a couple of folks trying to figure out how to make this work and some places insurers have the upper hand and some cases, the hospitals have the upper hand. and what we've really got to struggle with is how to put them both in the same economic basket so that they're a win-win possibility instead of one always sniping at the other. >> what about the battle you didn't mention, and that's between insurance companies and patients? i think it is a universal experience that all of us have had your doctor order a test, you don't want it, but you do it and you get a notice from your insurance company that says, we don't pay for that test and you embark on a yearlong battle to get reimbursed. is that addressed in the reform plan? >> i think in large measure those kind of changes are addressed in changing the way some of the insurance companies and to their credit, they've supported this, no more preexisting conditions, making sure anybody who wants insurance can get insurance.
9:18 am
everybody agrees on, those are all in the bills. the insurance companies support them. everybody on the hill supports them. when we get to the struggle of managing health care cost, you have two things you can control. you can either change the amount of money you pay for something, or you can do less of something. and what we all struggle with in our personal lives, not just in health care, but can i afford this and how many of these things can i afford? what we set in motion really is a private sector that freely negotiates prices and tries to manage the amount of things that are happening. the public sector, medicare, that has government set prices and doesn't do much on the volume. but either way, we're probably paying more and spending more than we need to as a country. >> everyone thinks the insurance companies, the big enemy here. but isn't the real enemy the prices and the problems with the submission process? >> well, i think the real enemy is that we all want to be healthy. that's priceless.
9:19 am
health care is expensive. when you put your personal health care, that's a priceless commodity, so you're willing to spend examine do anything. we've got to resolve that tension in a way between the doctor, between the patient, and yes, between who ever is paying the bill. >> john, thank you for joining us this morning. >> you're welcome. >> coming up on the show, you put your life in their hands when you fly the friendly skies. can you imagine your pilot nodding off in mid flight, taking a nap? u.s. airlines and their ruins are pushing the faa to allow nap time in the cockpit. is that really safer than sleep deprivation? we'll talk about that next.

their unions are pushing the federal aviation administration to allow naps mid flight to cut back on fatigue. i'm talking about the pilots napping. will this work and make it safer? >> let's ask the president of the flight safety foundation. nice to see you this morning. >> good morning. >> so what's the problem here? we hear that tired pilots are listed in by federal investigators as one of the top ten reasons we have airline crashes. what's wrong with letting these guys get a little shut eye while another pilot is manning the helm? >> actually we think it's a really good idea. what we've been promoting for a long time is the idea that this isn't the going imposition at the start of the day. you don't plan on sending the guy to work with his little rug so he can take his afternoon nap. but you do want to have a situation where when everything goes to pieces and you're out there in a late night landing, before a late night land not guilty a blizzard, if they're
9:24 am
really shot and tired, let the guy get a few minutes rest. >> how does this work? is this mostly on really long flights and do you take the nap in the seat, up in the cockpit? >> yeah, exactly. that's what we're talking about here. we're really talking about something that's pretty common sense and pretty simple. first of all, you don't plan on it at all. you don't count on this, so you don't start having pilots napping and still using -- instead of using hotel rooms. you send them to work rested in the first place. but if something happens that makes the day go longer, makes things tough, while you're enroute, the altitude, you have a special procedure and say, okay, i'm going to take 20 minutes off here, close my eyes. maybe even call back to the flight attendant, say check with us in ten or 15 minutes just in case there is the other guy starts to get drowsy. and you take care of it. if you admit you're going to do it, you can do that. >> you know what the problem is,
9:25 am
critics and faa forbids. they haven't been willing to look at this. but let's be specific here because we had a bunch of e-mails from people saying i don't want my pilot sleeping while flying. but is it really the only flying done upon takeoff and landing and most of the middle stuff is the auto pilot? >> yeah. absolutely i have to tell you that in the enroute phase of flight, at altitude, there is very little going on. and it's almost more of a problem of boredom than anything else. we're not talking about the guy getting up and sleeping in first class. we're talk being him being at his station. you're really saying, let's admit what human beings would do anyway. same device we give our teen-agers on the road. >> isn't this happening already anyway? >> yeah. absolutely. >> let's be honest. aren't they napping now? >> you know, we never forget, these pilots are the first people on the scene of an accident. so they know if they're getting
9:26 am
dangerously overtired, but they shouldn't have to sneak around. it's a safer procedure if you can admit you're doing it. then you can take precautions. >> interesting stuff. bill voss, president of flight safety foundation. thanks for coming in. >> british airways has done this. >> thanks. >> allison is -- >> she's awake? >> wide awake. thank you. john and kate gosselin are heading back to court. you know them, if you're getting a divorce, you're going to want to hear this next segment because there are lessons you can learn from their nasty divorce case and what not to do. first, we have a quick look at the weather. >> we have got some serious snow going on across the central part of the country. how about maybe six to eight-inches of rain in big snow out west coming up this week. we'll talk about that, coming up.

welcome back, everybody. thank you for joining us this morning. mike is in for dave, clayton. let me tell you what your headlines are at this hour because we start with a fox news alert. senator john mccain coming to the defense of former running mate sarah palin, speaking earlier this morning, mccain said that palin is still a formidable force in the republican party. he also says he has great affection for the former alaska governor. this comes just days after his campaign manager said it would be a catastrophe for republicans if palin is the party's 2012 presidential nominee. we're seeing the first pictures from that fatal bus crash in idaho. the bus was transporting a group of high school students home to utah after a band competition when it skidded off the highway and flipped onto its side.
9:31 am
one teacher was killed. more than a dozen students suffered serious injuries. 30 others suffered minor injuries. idaho investigators believe the driver lost control after suffering some sort of medical problem. registered nurse files a lawsuit against new york state. she's asking a judge to block a state policy requiring health care workers to get vaccinated against the swine flu. that's becoming mandatory in lots of places. tell us what else. >> the car company volkswagen has transformed a staircase in a subway station in stockholm, sweden into a giant piano. the goal? to get more people to use the stairs and have fun. these stairs, we showed you the before, these were blank. droves of people, you could have seen, were going up the escalate nonstop. so they painted them and put sensors on the stairs. >> they make noise? >> they make noise and the stairs are covered in black and white. when the sensors are connected,
9:32 am
they find people are using the stairs instead of the escalator and not being prompt to do do so. >> that's great. >> that's cool. just when you thought you heard everything. look at this. they're using the stairs. >> you got to check it out. i'll post a link on twitter and you can check it out. it's great to see. all these people on the escalator in droves droves and y paint them, and everyone starts using the stairs. it's psychological. >> like rick's weather. >> you would be dancing like in the movie, big. >> right. >> take a look at the weather picture. we've got very cold temperatures across parts of the west. 14 in ma zhu la. rapid city, more snow coming today. take a look at this picture. everybody enjoy this is time of year because it's fall and you want to get out and see some of the foliage. another one that comes from a.j. burnett. there we go. take a look at this. church of new england. he went apple picking and got
9:33 am
pictures. send me pictures and i would love to post those next week. moving forward, a lot of snow moving in across parts of -- into the plains again. toward the rockies, bringing snow, as well as the rockies in colorado and wyoming. that moves toward south dakota today. and then the tail end of the front that brought all the rain this week. it will stall out across much of the south and bring the beneficial rain in towards texas, but not as much needed rain across the southeast. that will be with us for much of this coming week. then this week, our big story is going to be out west. it's been very dry. we had a typhoon that hit japan earlier this week. some of that energy is making its way in across parts of california and very heavy rain will fall this week. some areas up to eight-inches. we'll see snow into the higher elevations and it will bringen an end to the fire season. southern california not as
9:34 am
lucky. i don't think they'll see as much rain. temperatures for your day today, still cold in across much of the rockies. just getting to 33 in muzzola. florida has a heat wave. 91 in tampa. record high temperatures tomorrow, that's just one spot. really all the cold air will be towards the northeast and the coldest temperatures we've seen so far this year. back to you. >> thanks, rick. >> famous reality couple jon and kate going through a nasty divorce. what can others learn from that public battle? >> the host of judge judy joins us now. she's here to weigh in on it. good morning. all rise. >> thank you. >> how are you? >> hi. >> you look fantastic. >> thank you. it's good to see you. >> okay. let's talk about this. the jon and kate plus eight.
9:35 am
they're going through a divorce and every week we hear more details about the court dates, what sort of seedy things jon has been up to, what things kate has been up to. jon has withdrawn over $230,000 from their joint bank account, according to her lawyer. can she get this money back? >> sure. at the end of the divorce. what happens is they're going to do a forensic account. apparently a lot of money is involved here. and the forensic accounting will tell who took what money and at the end of the day, if there is any money left, then they'll difficulty it up. here is the bottom line, people need to understand that if they are married, it doesn't mean they're going to be married forever. you should have a separate account and even where they have a divorce arbitrator as they did, who said the money was not to be removed, he allegedly removes it anyway. this is a lesson to anybody out there, you should have your own money, you should have it in a separate account because if it's in a joint account, either person owns it. >> how is that allowed? how can you walk up to the bank
9:36 am
and withdraw $230,000? shouldn't it be frozen, their joint account? >> no, because it's in their name. as long as it's a joint account, it's your money or his money, whoever gets their first gets it. at the end, then it's divided up. what you've got here are two people who rose to fame based on nothing other than the fact that they had eight children and they are acting like amateurs in this. what they need to do is stop attacking each other, stop -- he's saying she's taking the money before the divorce. >> that she took $100,000 out of that same joint account. >> right. what you have are a lot of accusations. he's saying my children shouldn't be used in a reality show, but oh, boy the way, i'm going to bring entertainment tonight to their birthday party and pocket some cash there. it's ridiculous. what they need to do is chill out and what a judge will ultimately do is say, i don't think these kids should be in a reality show. >> when is the ruling? tuesday? >> tuesday they'll start discussions as it relates to the money. but ultimately as to whether or not the kids should be doing television based upon his
9:37 am
claims, a judge will decide that in the next three or four months. >> one of the questions is, where is he getting other money? apparently it's alleged he's getting money from other sources. we don't know where. but this money is coming from other places. what can other couples going through a similar divorce proceeding learn from this? is it something their lawyer can look into and gather or keep this hidden? >> he's going to try to keep it hidden. i don't think jon will be able to keep anything hidden. if he's getting money for photographs or being out with a girl and saying, give me 10, $50,000 whatever, he might get it. but most people can't afford an accountant to come in and analyze all the moneys coming in. these two, because they're so high profile, i don't think they'll get away with a lot. people need to understand is they need a nest egg for themselves in the event it goes south. >> marriages do not always go south. >> but when they do, it's about that. here is the problem, when you are married, you can have your
9:38 am
slush fund on the side attention, but of course, most of your assets are joint assets. you can't start -- >> do you have a slush fund? >> you have to. >> is it in an offshore account? >> do you have a swiss bank account? >> no. >> but most of your assets together. when are you supposed to start protecting that joint account? >> one person usually knows before the other that the divorce is coming and they'll try to take the money. even before that, there is an award saying don't touch the money. she says she can't pay the bills. shame on their lawyers for not getting the money put in escrow or get someone who is going to be paying the bills because these two are out of control and they're stealing from each other, which apparently is legal because it belongs to both of them. >> i know you're a judge, have

you noticed jon is losing a lot of hair. >> he is. he looks stressed. he's out partying too much. >> he really is. didn't the show buy his her -- hair plugs for him? >> and she had a tummy tuck. >> there is a lot to say about that. >> i think she's kind of cute. >> you do? >> i kind of do. well. >> there is also a slush fund. >> there are new developments in the knox murder trial, the american exchange student accused in the death of her british roommate. now after 20 months behind bars, her fate could be decided. details coming up next. >> just returned from iraq where they performed for our troops. los lonely boys are here. >> you hide money from your husband? ♪ ♪

the amanda knox defense hit a snag after the defense's request to run more tests on key evidence was shot down. should amanda knox start thinking beyond the verdict and looking into an appeal? >> what do you think? >> not good news for her. there is a knife that has amanda knox's dna on the handle, the victim's blood on the blade, and you've got her boyfriend, his dna is on her -- the victim's vertebra strap. in addition -- bra strap. you have her saying she wasn't there and then there. you have a foot print in blood blood that they believe is her boyfriend's and you've got her not only lying, but you've got her acting inappropriately where she's doing hand stands and cart wheels at the police department. it was apparently a drug-fueled
9:44 am
sex game and the poor victim in this case was literally almost crushed to the ground and stabbed. the defense is saying, look, this knife, we want to have it examined again for dna and the jury, which is kind of interesting, come priced of six or eight people, said no. she's poised for an appeal based upon the denial of that additional review. in other words, if she's convicted, one of the grounds for appeal will be, look, the jury played too much or relied too much on the dna of the prosecution. we wanted to do our own analysis. we weren't allowed to do it and, therefore, this case should be reversed. we should get a new trial and be able to do our own examination of that knife. >> there is a flip side and that is the drug-fueled sex game that you referred to is how she's being depicted in the italian press. but some americans think she's being railroaded. it may not be easy to get a fair trial with a somewhat whacky italian court system. >> i don't know how whacky the
9:45 am
system is, but i know she is despised over there, based upon the fact, based upon her behavior and the dna, her statement, her lying. a lot of this she's brought on herself. and remember, this is all complicated by the fact that the third person, an ivory coast immigrant, has already been convicted of actually having sex with her during this fueled event with the victim, and he's now appealing in the italian system. when he appeal, he will take the stand. the issue and the appeal will take place before the verdict is decided. he may implicate amanda knox and her boyfriend. not a good scenario for this student. >> if you were her attorney, is there some point you give up and then you're better off at sentencing? >> i think all trial attorneys, and i've tried many cases. what you hope is that if you're a defense attorney and i've never been, is that there is one
9:46 am
juror who will take some kind of sympathy on her and say, this poor girl didn't speak the language or she was really scared and the police beat her down, which is what she's saying, the police beat her down. everything about this woman suggests that she's anything but an innocent kind of soft, shy, retiring type. and i think the evidence is all there. they will decide this case right before christmas and the italian justice system, you call is whacky, they take the summer off. you're in the middle of a murder trial, we're going to the beach for the summer. >> the bottom line here is that meredith, the victim, was alive when the night began. she was murdered by the next morning and there were only three people in the house. i don't know how amanda knox could be found not guilty. >> in addition to that, they've got her implicating a guy who is a bar tender who was absolutely not there. i think that he's going to be suing her. she's lied, she's changed her stories. there is a bloody foot print --
9:47 am
>> let me ask you this -- >> she heard the screams, but she thought she was dreaming. >> had she said from the beginning, you know what, i was high on drugs. the night is a blur. i feel horrible about what happened. this is a tragedy. would she be sitting in a better position? >> without a doubt because it's all about your mental state. it's all about whether or not did you intentionally try to kill this woman and apparently she was stabbed and almost decapitated. it was a very vicious, vicious homicide. if she had said, you know what, i was drunk or drugged and i didn't have the intent to kill her, then it's manns. it's not -- manns, it's not murder. >> is it too late for her to go that route? >> yes. i think some italians have her dead to right, they're not going to let her go. >> there are two judges on the jury. it's kind of interesting. >> very different. >> good to see you. >> always good to see you. >> judge shapiro, thanks for coming in. los lonely boys are here.
