presidency, hoping to set the tone for a second term that his aides say will be every bit as ambitious as the first. after the ceremonies, all the celebrations and the ball, president obama will take on the tricky task of implementing his second term agenda. >> i plan to carry out the agenda i campaigned on. an agenda for new jobs, new opportunity, and new security for the middle class. >> reporter: on the list, gun control, immigration reform and climbed change. all of which will take support from both parties to implement. the president still faces a slow-growing economy and high unemployment. but there are signs things are turning around. real estate is starting to rebound. and the dow recently hit a five-year high. >> we are poised for a good year. if we make smart decisions and sound investments. and as long as washington politics don't get in the way of america's progress. >> reporter: and now, the man who ran the president's re-election campaign is hoping

running. look for him to be traveling the country, not long from today, push ing that second term agend. and beginning with guns in schools and gun violence. let's get more from our political contributors. years of experience on the top levels of democratic and republican campaigns. donna brazile and matthew dowd. matthew, the unfulfilled promise of president obama bridging our national divisions and divisions here in the capital? >> these speeches, the inaugural speeches are different than the state of the union speeches. where do you define yourself in the country in the arc of history? he has to lay out a broad vision of that. it doesn't need to be long. but it needs to give people a sense of where the country is and where he broadly wants to go. >> and he'll try to keep it short. donna, special resonance, that this is martin luther king day. one of the bibles he'll use is
martin luther king's bible. >> it's his dream, the vision he had for this country, of bringing people together, and sharing that brotherhood and sisterhood of love. this is going to be a very special day for those who will return to washington and those who are coming to washington for the first time to see our first biracial, african-american president. i think it's going to be a wonderful day of celebration. if dr. king were alive, he would encourage president obama to continue to pursue the programs he has over the last four years, to get people back to work. >> and of course, the fact that he is president, president obama's president, fulfilling part of martin luther king's dream. jon karl also mentioned, recent history, second terms run out of steam pretty quickly. often slip into scandal. how does the president avoid that? >> really, every day moving forward from today, is a loss of political power for an incumbent president that knows he's not going to serve. you take that back to lbj and vietnam.
a second scandal is often plagued by a scandal. president bush and katrina. and that was the end of his presidency. you bring in new people and basically set a pattern and a tone of here's what i want to do. bringing in new people is a big point in how to fix that. >> donna, the president's aides describe him right now as battle-scarred by buoyant. >> he is using dr. martin luther king's bible and abraham lincoln, to move forward to stand for the principles that got him re-elected. and not forget that there's people back at home who want the president to work with the republicans but also want the president to do what he said he would do, to get this country moving again. >> donna and matt, you'll be with us all day long. let's go up to new york and amy. >> okay, george. not a bad day in d.c. for the inauguration. but bitter cold freezing much of the country. a windily blast targeting the northeast. sam has been tracking the very latest. sam, a big change for a lot of us. >> big change for d.c., as well,
by tonight. for today, it's a big shot of arctic air that dropped in over the weekend. if you look at it, no matter where the air hits, it's going to be the coldest it's been in years. chicago has not been below the zero mark in 700 days. but they will get below it tonight. this air doesn't go deep in the south. but everywhere it hits, it reminds you of what winter's like. this morning, a brutal reminder of what winter can really feel like. sub zero temperatures and powerful wins, punishing the midwest. the coldest it's been in minneapolis in four years. in north dakota this morning, temperatures are 20 below zero. but in some areas of minnesota, with the windchill, it feels like almost 50 below. >> if you don't have to travel, don't. >> reporter: saturday, in michigan, as the arctic front blew through, gusts as high as 60 miles per hour, ripped frees from their roots, tossing them on houses and power lines. this morning, hundreds of thousands still lack power.
families now living without heat in the middle cold. in north dakota saturday, driving snow driven by winds of near 60 miles per hour, a ground blizzard. along with frozen roads, slowed highways to a crawl. as these temperatures start to dip, withe got the possibility picking up snow. it's 20 inches of snow. but in many locations, three to six inches of snow. by the time you get to boston, some places in that area will have eight inches of snow. we'll tell the nation what to expect when we come back. now, to the hostage crisis in north africa. new and chilling details emerging about that raid and standoff at a natural gas complex in algeria. several americans did manage to escape. abc's brian ross has the story of their terrifying ordeal. >> reporter: during the four-day siege, authorities say some hostages were executed. others made to wear explosives around their necks. a phone call from inside, made
to authorities outside, about what algerian tv said was one of the hostages in broken english. >> we have prisoners. we have hostages with bombs planted on the body. please, call back. please, call back. >> reporter: an al qaeda commander followed back with this ominous message in arabic. we will kill the american hostages here. we will slaughter them. algerian tv said one of the hostages made this video, as he and others escaped across the desert. survivors said one of the captors spoke excellent english and may have been from canada. and many of the terrorists were dressed as security guards, making the decision to run for it very difficult. >> you don't know who they are. and we know the terrorists are dressed the same as the security forces. and it was a huge decision. do you stay? or do you go? >> reporter: the rogue, one-eyed al qaeda leader, mokhtar belmokhtar, has taken credit for the attack.
we and al qaeda announce this blessed operation, he was reported to have said. the chairman of the house intelligence committee told abc news, the u.s. knew that some kind of an attack was coming from his group. >> we didn't know for sure if they would be this particular place under those circumstances. but we knew that they were trying to find and complete a target against a western target, which this clearly was. >> reporter: algerian officials say they have discovered a number of bodies that were so badly burned or disfigured they cannot be immediately identified. as of this morning, of the ten americans known to be at the plant, seven escaped. one from texas has been confirmed as killed. and the fate of two others is still not officially known, although there is a growing concern about what happened to them. they were inside the plant when the army launched its bloody rescue attempt, amy. >> we are certainly thinking of their families this morning. brian ross, thank you so much. let's go back to josh in washington for the other top stories developing at this hour. josh, good morning. >> good morning to you, amy. we're going to begin here with a
head-on train collision at the height of the morning rush. five people seriously injured when two commuter trains slammed into each other just outside vienna, austria. crews had to use specially-rigged cranes to pull some of the injured from the wreckage. investigators are looking at why both trains were traveling on the same track at the same time. and a tense landing at newark's liberty airport last night, as the united express flight blew four tires on landing. it nearly struck an faa navigation building before stopping on a taxiway. the 13 people onboard were shaken up but okay. we're looking forward to a speedy recovery for our dear friend and colleague, barbara walters. as precaution, she was hospitalized after falling and cutting her forehead in washington. barbara, giving orders to everyone. and that, as you might well know, clearly, a good sign. we want to show you this.
a terrifying ordeal for two fishermen in tennessee. the pair dangled over the edge of a dam for some three hours. they drifted helplessly towards the falls there after their motor failed. thankful, though, for that lifeline, as are we. and something of a wild night in north miami beach. police got a call that lemurs were on the loose. one even attacked a 2-year-old girl. officers eventually captured the pair of primates and returned them to their owner. he claims someone broke into their cage while trying to steal them. the little girl, and the lemurs, thankfully, george, are all fine this morning. it is a theme. everybody today, all okay. >> we're going to miss barbara today. >> we sure are. >> hope you're okay, barbara. let's go back up to amy in new york. >> okay. we're thinking of you, barbara. now, to what's being called the bro bowl. the san francisco 49ers and the
baltimore ravens for the super bowl. and the two brothers who coach the two teams are going head-to-head. we want to say good morning to darren revel. >> thank you so much. it's great to be here. we have the bro bowl here. the 49ers had to travel to georgia. and the ravens, to massachusetts, and play in front of a hostile opposing crowd yesterday. but in the end, they both prevailed and turned the super bowl into a family affair. they're calling it the superbaugh. or maybe, the har-bowl. either way, the 47th annual nfl title game, will pit the two harbaugh brothers, jim and john, against each other. after john's baltimore ravens crushed the new england patriots late sunday. >> absolute second-half dominance by baltimore. >> reporter: just hours after jim's san francisco 49ers beat the atlanta falcons. >> the 49ers are going to the super bowl. >> reporter: brothers have never
been head coaches of posing teams in the big game. >> i'd like to think when you look at those two teams, you're looking at mirror images of two football teams. i'd like to think that. it's going to be a great football game. he's a great football coach. >> reporter: it's no surprise, both men were born to be here. their father, jack harbaugh coached high school and college for more than 40 years. >> the thing about our family, we're always passionate about what we do. >> reporter: older brother, john, started his nfl coaching career with the ravens in 2008. while jim played quarterback at the university of michigan and starred in the nfl for 15 years, before becoming head coach of the 49ers last season. >> it's really unique to see which brother has the experience. who really won all those match-ups when they were younger? that's going to show on super bowl sunday. >> reporter: it will be tough for the brothers to face off in two weeks for the title. but it will be harder on their parents to watch. their only consolation, no matter what, one of their sons will win it all.

let lennay in 2007. most bizarrely, te'o kept talking about his fake girlfriend even after he knew she was a fake. he and his parents can explain that when they meet with katie couric on thursday for the on-camera interview. now, espn's jeremy schaap, and "gma" legal analyst, dan abrams. jeremy, you spoke with te'o for 2 1/2 hours. you asked him everything. but some fans, some people still aren't satisfied with his answers. we know he will be speaking with katie. and his parents will be on the show, as well. what do we expect to hear? >> i think it will be important for people to see him answering these questions. i don't know what the format's going to be. i don't know if it's going to be a live audience or taped. i'm not sure if those details are available yet. but having conducted this interview offcamera, we only took still pictures. we recorded the whole thing. we put a transcript on espn.com.
people want to know how he responds to these questions in terms of his body language. >> was he emotional with you? >> i wouldn't say emotional. there were moments when he took pregnant pauses. he was certainly aware of how much this has weighed on him. but he gave me a straightforward account. he answered 300 questions. and he never portrayed nervousness. he never backtracked. he was very convincing. >> dan, what about the legal issues here? does the damage for more victims change anything? >> it makes it more likely they'll want to prosecute. in california, one of the states where impersonating someone online is a crime. in california, it's a misdemeanor. if you can expect they can stack up the victims here, and the intent in doing it was to harm, defraud, threaten, et cetera, then there may be prosecution. but again, we're talking about a very small crime and a
misdemeanor. but in a really high-profile case, even a misdemeanor takes on greater meaning than it might in an ordinary case. >> this is such a high-profile case. it's gotten so much coverage. it will continue to do so. what does this mean, jeremy, for te'o's nfl career? >> i think probably very little. if he goes to the nfl draft combine and has a great performance, he's going to get drafted in the first round. he's probably going to get drafted in the first round, even if he doesn't have a great combine. this is about possibly top of the draft position. does he go in the top 5 versus the top 15. one way or another, he's going to be a millionaire very soon. >> it's about on the field. and what about te'o and notre dame? any legal consequences for them? >> some say notre dame should have disclosed this earlier. my question is, why? why would notre dame come out earlier? they did their own investigation, determined there
was no wrongdoing. i don't think there's any -- certainly no legal concern. and i don't think there's a real moral one, with regard to notre dame. the question for notre dame, is possibly ncaa violations, i don't see it. >> dan abrams, jeremy schaap. thank you for being with us. time for the weather and sam champion. >> amy, as we get ready for a big blast of wintry air across the country this week, europe had theirs. a picture from paris. about four inches of snow there. 40% of the flights canceled as that hit of snow came across the area. look at london, as well. heathrow having problems. it's been two to four inches around london. 20% of the flights canceled. 10 delayed today. the most widespread snowfall in england since 2010. a real winter blast there. here's where the low cruises up the coastline. throws snow off the great lakes. also, i think it's mountain snow and a new england snow there. we'll watch it carefully. in the southwest, it is nice and warm.

violence and worse back in the late-'60s. such a meaningful moment for them four years ago. >> chicago is in the house. >> chicago is in the house. good to see you. we're here with -- we've had people from west virginia, california, mississippi. america represented, ladies and gentlemen. >> absolutely, bill. what a lovely moment that was four years ago, when you met with the freedom riders. look forward to seeing them again today. now, let's get to josh who has the morning headlines. >> we're going to begin with the rising death toll from the hostage siege in algeria, ending over the weekend at a dear price. at least 81 people confirmed killed, as bodies are still being found. so far, one american is confirmed dead. seven escaped. and concern is growing for two others still missing. and an atlanta falcons fan is in a georgia hospital this morning, after a postgame argument turned violent. witnesses say the falcons fan

greatest champion" will no longer be in the nonfiction section. the move follows his confession that he relied on drugs. >> and move them to fiction. >> there's a sign in the library that says you can find all lance armstrong books in fiction. >> well, it's true. this is also reportedly true. and get ready for it. a genetics professor from harvard school of medicine says he has collected enough dna from neanderthal fossils to make a person. look, there's a picture. >> no. >> professor church believes, sam, cloning the species, believed to be our ancestors, 33 million years after they became extinct, could provide answers
