hot enough for you? 105 in little rock. 104 in dallas. a deadly heat wave leads to warnings in 18 states. we have the latest forecast "early" this friday morning, august 6th, 2010. captioning funded by cbs very good friday morning to you. i'm erica hill. >> the heat in the headlines this morning. relief here. but bad in much of the rest of the country. we will get to that, too. wyclef jean, music superstar, announced this week he's running for president of haiti. we have an exclusive interview this morning. our betty nguyen sat down with wyclef and talked to him about what his plans are. >> looking forward to that. we want to get you to this. supreme court justice elena kagan. sworn in tomorrow after the senate voted yesterday to
confirm president obama's nomination. cbs news chief legal correspondent jan crawford joins thus morning from washington. the confirmation was pretty much expected but very divisive at the same time. >> well, that's exactly right, erica. it was basically a foregone conclusion. she had a major misstep and didn't. democrats have a solid majority in the senate and got all but one to support her. in addition to five republicans. like you said that vote was largely on party lines. and that is just a fact of life in these mod person supreme court confirmation hearings, the days of justices getting confirmed, 96-3. ruth bader ginsburg said those days are over. >> long gone. she isn't expected to alter the balance of the court very much but does come into the position of bringing or setting some historic precedence, i should say. >> well, that's true. some of them, she may not like so much. she could get more votes.
she is the first supreme court nominee in nearly 40 years with no experience as a judge. but she is a good one. her swearing in will mark the first time in history that three women will serve on that nine-member court, only three, but still that's, you know, progress. >> yes, it is. the swearing in comes tomorrow. she has to get to work. >> she does. she's never been a judge. so you know, she has to get her clerks together and start reading the cases. court comes back on the first monday of october. you know, she has a lot to learn and a lot of catching up to do to take the seat of that liberal justice john paul stevens. she won't change the balance of the court that much but will hold that seat for a generation. >> what's the biggest thing you think that people are expecting from her? >> well, i think that they expect her to be a pretty solid liberal vote. she has, you know, battling intellect, former dean of harvard law school.
so they expect her to come on that court and hope that certainly the obama administration hopes that she will really be a force, will be a leading voice for the liberals. like i said, that court is closely divided. have you four liberals and you have four conservatives and then there's the key swing justice vote in the middle that they are always fighting over. the obama administration hopes that she will be able to persuade him to go to the left a little more and get some of those cases more on the left column. >> everybody will be watching closely. they are always so surprised when they come along with it. jan crawford in washington this morning. now to the disturbing final words of the man who killed eight co-workers at a connecticut beer warehouse. a cbs news national correspondent jim axelrod reports the gunman called 911 from the crime scene just moments before he killed himself. >> this is omar thornton, the shooter in manchester. >> reporter: the chilling 911
call from omar thornton lasted a little more than four minutes. >> i understand that. >> they treat me bad over here. they treat all the employees bad over here. i took it into my own hands and handled the problem. i wish i could have got more people. >> you are not going to surrender yourself? >> come get me. >> thornton called from inside the beer distribution building. the 911 operator pleaded with him to surrender. >> we we don't any more people to lose their life here. >> i'm not going to kill nobody else. i love them. >> yeah. >> omar. >> yes. >> did you teomar. >> company officials from hartford distributors denied omar's claims of racism saying he never filed any complaints of discrimination.
jim axelrod, cbs news, new york. >> what a chilling story. went into the union meeting and resigns. comes out and says i'm going get my lunch box. that's when he got his gun. >> awful story. near st. louis this morning, a tragic story. two young people dead after a horrific highway pileup involving four vehicles, two of them school buses. packed with kids. cbs news correspondent ben tracy joins us from st. louis this morning with the latest on thursday's crash. ben, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this was supposed to be a fun field trip for members of a local high school band. instead 40 of them, nearly 40, ended up at this hospital in st. louis. after their school buses were involved in a terrifying crash. if you saw this along the road, you couldn't help but stop and stare in disbelief. >> i'm seeing it but didn't see it. >> reporter: two buses, cab of a semi, a mangled mess of metal once a pickup truck. the driver of that truck,
19-year-old daniel shatz was killed. his father said he sent daniel to run an errand but the accident happen. >> he's a great kid. it is going to be hard. >> reporter: 15-year-old jessica brinker, a member of the st. james high school band, was also killed. she was on the first school bus. >> it has been a horrible, horrible day in our community and will be felt forever. >> reporter: the buses, one with boys and one with girls, were just ten miles from the six flags amusement park when a day of fun turned deadly. >> looked out the window and heard a big bang. >> reporter: the highway patrols said the semi truck heading east slowed down for road construction. the gmc pickup following behind slammed into it. the driver of the first school bus was changing lanes. and didn't see the accident when she crashed into the back of the pickup truck. moments later the second bus collided with the first. crushing the pickup. they used metal ladders to help the kids escape. >> trying to get kids out of the bus. >> reporter: given this scene, it is amazing more people did
not die. nearly 40 students were taken to the hospital. with only minor injuries. as they were reunited with their anxious parents, cranes were brought in to disassemble the wreck. a lot of people are wondering if there were seat belts on this school bus and we are told there were not. in fact, there are not seat belts on most school bus necessary this country. the national transportation safety board already has a team here in st. louis. they are going to be in their investigation today and we are told that should last just about two weeks. erica? >> ben tracy in st. louis. ben, thanks. turning our attention to washington now where there has been a shake-up this morning in president obama's economic team. christina romer who heads the president's council of economic advisers announcing she will resign next month to return to college teaching. as she leads, the new unemployment figures released just this morning show the economy is still struggling to create new jobs. here with more on that is cbs news business and economic correspondent rebecca jarvis. we knew this report was going to
be bad. expected to be bad. the numbers are actually worse than what was predicted. >> they are worse than what was predicted. the economy shed 131,000 jobs in the month of july. that left the unemployment rate steady at 9.5%. a big reason behind the decline in jobs picture are those temporary census workers. we knew they were temporary. their jobs ended in the month of july. 143,000 of them left the jobs picture. also, on the private employment side of things, the number didn't increase as much as we were hoping. we want private jobs to come into the work force and only 71 how thousand of those jobs were sea aed in the month of july. >> that's where you need to see the creation in the private sector if we want to see that unemployment rate drop. correct? >> absolutely. between want to see the long-term private sector jobs come back into the market. between want to see jobs that aren't basically financed by our tax dollars come back into the market. that's very significant for economists. also on economists' minds is the fact there is a lot of jobs creation ahead of us.
13 million new jobs must be created just to bring unemployment back to a more normalized level of 6%. and if you think about what happened this month of july, it is going to take a long time do that. >> it definitely will. will is one bright spot. it is in the auto industry. >> believe it or not, the auto industry is hiring for the very first time since 2000. ford announced earlier this week they are bringing 27% more workers back on to the work force in the next couple of years. that's a very good statistic. of course, it is important when we hear that general motors is going to be going public sometime soon in the next couple of weeks here, too. >> here's something for to you watch for us. thanks. we want to get a look at the other day's headlines on this friday morning. jeff glor is standing behind me at the news desk. health throw. >> hello. good morning, erica. good morning, everyone. we begin with the deadly heat wave that's killed more than a dozen people in the south. with hot weather storms can come through like the powerful thunderstorms that hit the washington, d.c., area yesterday. our don teague this morning is following the heat in dallas,
texas. where it is scorching. don, good morning to you. >> good morning, jeff. here in the dallas-ft. worth area, we saw temperatures as high as 108 degrees yesterday. we will be well into the triple digits again today as much of the country continues to swelter. it is supposed to be hot in august. but the combination of high temperatures and humidity from texas to the east coast is deadly. in delray beach, florida, authorities say a 2-year-old girl died after being left in a hot van at a daycare center. >> it is safe to assume she was left by a staff member. we are going to look at that. there has been more than a dozen deaths and heat advisories in 18 states. with temperatures soaring into triple digits. 104 in dallas. 105 in little rock. >> 118 and flashing danger. >> reporter: in georgia, 118-degree temperatures on the field put high school football practice on hold.
>> danger right now. not extreme danger but it is danger. we will keep our guys inside. >> reporter: firefighters in memphis were forced to take extra precautions with heat index essay approaching 120 degrees. in tulsa, 100-degree plus temperatures and dry shifting soil and ruptured water lines. authorities now urging residents to use less water and speaking of water, hawaiian falls water park near dallas dumped loads of ice into the pools just trying to cool things down. those thunderstorms across the country have helped cool some areas down which has been a help in the dallas-ft. worth area, no such luck, though. it was still in 90s a couple of hours ago. the sun is not up. it now cooled down to the 80s. jeff? >> all right, don teague in dallas. don, thank you. the online whistle blower wikileaks may be about to release more classified government documents.
wikileaks posted a massive encrypted file on the website named insurance. it is 20 times larger than the batch of 77,000 documents released last week. nobody knows what it includes and wiki leaks says it won't say. the pentagon is demanding wikileaks canceled for plans to classified material. there is a new man in charge of the nation's intelligence this morning. last night the senate confirmed james clapper as the next director of national intelligence. he will oversee 16 spy agencies. in the gulf this morning, bp has plugged its broken well at the top and next comes the so-called bottom kill. here is a live look at that well. you can see that no oil is leaking thanks to the mud and cement plug on the top. that plug, scattic kill, is nearly complete. the bottom kill, the relief well must be finished. about 100 feet to go. the officials say 53 million gallons of oil remains in the gulf and along the shores.

this is a personal matter. it is widely believed that the 20-year-old is estranged from her famous father since her parents' divorce in 2002. carolyn giuliani faces petty larceny charges and due in court august 31 but those charges will likely be dropped because the store is refusing to press charges. also this week, former usa charged with shoplifting from a target store in texas. so here now with more on why young people steal, especially when they don't need to, eye jennifer hartstein. always good to have you with us. with a lot of the stories people in the public eye, people from seemingly well-to-do background who don't need to steal, what drives them to do this? >> it is a really good question. we are asking it a lot certainly in this situation. and there's many reasons that they may do it. they found that when research a third of people that shoplift have depression. a menial health reason behind it, an entitlement factor.
there is a sense of i just deserve it and i can take and it i'm going to do that and keep moving forward. >> we mentioned -- i want to get back, though, to entitlement but the depression, a third of people you say. there are two-thirds of the other shoplifters. >> two-thirds of the other shoplifters that don't. there are other reasons. about three. one is that the substitute for a loss. something happens and then they feel like they need to replace it. they go and take things. the second thing is that justified payback which could be something we are talking about with carolyn giuliani. getting back at a parent, getting back at someone that does something that may hurt you. and getting back at them by trying to embarrass them. certainly look at what her father did to new york. what's the best payback for him, get caught stealing. the third one is it is a relief mechanism, relieve some anxiety or negative sense of self, negative feeling. similarly to someone that may drink or self-injure. those kinds of things that help decrease a real sense of emotional disregulation and
makes them feel better. >> harmful behavior like self-mutilation or shoplifting, they actually see that as helpful? >> it gives them a rush. it may change their mood if they are feeling anxious or low. it may give them the boost they need to make themselves feel regulated and better. >> you also mentioned the sense of entitlement. so much talk about kids don't know how to work for things. no matter the background. there is a sense of entitlement. as parents, how do you keep that from happening with your own child? ? there are a couple of things. first you want to teach them what your values are and teach them what the consequences are of these things happen. you want to hammer that point home. you also want to be able to teach them how to give back. they can't have everything. but the things they have, maybe they don't use them, i will give to people less fortunate. thirdly, you remember want to talk to them about how they are going to earn things. how are they going to get what they want, how are you going to give it to them and what do you need do. >> how shoplifting can really hurt any of those plans.

good morning. >> good morning. yes. i sat down with wyclef just before he announced his candidacy to become haiti's next president. while he admit he is has no political experience, he says he felt compelled to run following january's earthquake that killed some 300,000 and left another 1.6 million homeless. >> wyclef. ♪ >> reporter: he is a hip hop star and former member of the group the fujis. but now haitian-born recording artist, wyclef jean is putting his music career on hold in a bid to become haiti's next president. ♪ >> reporter: we know you as a grammy winner. we know you as a hip hop star. what are your qualifications for president? >> i have no qualifications for president. i have qualifications for leader. the reason why i even entertain this idea is education. job creation. and agriculture, bringing security into the country.
>> reporter: a country infamous for its repressive government. there's a long road ahead of you. haiti has a long history of corruption. how are you going to handle that? >> if i am not corrupted, then there's a chance of me putting the right team around me that's not corrupted. where we can start to do business the right way. >> reporter: one of his first orders of business was to resign from his charity. the organize drew criticism following the january earthquake for alleged mismanagement of funds. so when people look at that and see maybe a possibility of corruption, what is your argument? >> you could say the governance of yele haiti was not right. how do i know you can govern a country if you couldn't govern a charity? what i will say to you is that i made a mistake. what i did, i fixed the mistake. i moved on. >> he's now fully focused on his campaign and says his wife may be the key to his success.
>> she is from a place in haiti called jeremy. and they say that you can't win the election in haiti unless jeremy is on your side. so i said well, then i married a wife from jeremy. >> reporter: you wrote a song called president. now that you are running, do those lyrics haunt you any? >> no. the lyrics don't haunt me at all because i'm sure before i become president i will have a remix of the same song. >> reporter: this is the last one. just hours before boarding a plane for haiti, wyclef was still wrapping up what he calls his last album. is she part of why you do it, too? >> she has to be. >> reporter: it is a sacrifice he says he's making no only for his daughter but for future generations.
>> i have to take what i used to sing about and turn it into policy. >> reporter: the big question is whether he's eligible to run. haitian constitution require as president to live there for five consecutive years before the election. wyclef moved from haiti to new york when he was 9 years old. he still has a home in haiti and tells me he was eligible to vote in the last presidential election. that said, he believes he's still eligible. harry? >> if, in fact, he is able to run, though, his candidacy is not being met with the universal acclamation. >> right on the heels of him announcing yesterday in haiti, sean penn, the oscar winner, who has since -- enormous amount of time in haiti saying i have questions about this. wyclef, according to him, had not spent enough time in haiti to rebuild the country. he also goes on to question his motives behind running for president. so it is going to be very interesting. but if you ask wyclef, wyclef will tell you there are no
mightives. this is my best way to help my country. here is another interesting point. wyclef could be running against his uncle. he will be running against his uncle because his uncle, former u.s. ambassador to the u.s. from haiti, decided to run for president as well. >> all right. quite a story. betty nguyen, thanks so much. we will be right back. the ice cream man is here! breyers all natural grasshopper pie. walmart's the only place you can get it. they love it when i take my work home with me.

at a five-star resort. the bulk of the cost to taxpayer for the first lady's vacation is for the security detail and the plane that flew her, her daughter and some 40 guests to spain. an estimated $230,000 so far. for that, and also for the appearance of this trip, michelle obama is being called a modern day marie antoinette, glamming it up while americans struggle with recession and unemployment at home. >> ouch. that seems a bit harsh. sure, if i were the president's political adviser, this would not have been my top vacation destination but let's not get too carried away. >> i think it shows questionable judgment. >> in fact mrs. obama and her guests are picking up their own personal expenses including accommodations and incidentals like the cost of shopping in the boutiques. however, the public cost will climb this weekend when mrs. obama switches into her official role to host a charity ball and
visit the spanish royal family at their palace on a private royal item. the bill for those events will be picked up by the white house. elizabeth palmer, cbs news, london. republican strategist leslie sanchez, "you've come a long way maybe" joins us with democratic strategist tonya acker. good to have you with us this morning. leslie, i want to start with you. always good to have you with us. the first lady paying for the first part with her own personal funds. she's going to be there in an official capacity. what is the big matter? >> first ladies wield a tremendous amount of influence behind the scenes. they humanize their husbands, the perception of the administration. at a time when we're seeing 9.6 unemployment, people losing jobs and homes, it doesn't convey she senses the plight of the
american family. critics push they are an elitist administration thumbing their nose at working families. >> tonya, perception is so important here. it's something the first family knows a little bit too well. the first lady just recently on the gulf coast saying, come here, it's a great place to vacation but ends up in spain. do you think they just completely missed the public perception part of this trip? >> well, i think there's no question but that every political family wants to avoid the inopportune photo-op, and that's certainly what we have here. i also think americans are a little more sophisticated than we may now be giving them credit for. i don't think they have forgotten mrs. obama's husband is leading an administration that just prolonged jobless benefits. caring whether or not jobless benefits are extended or looks their banks are going to continue to gouge them than whether or not the first lady went to the beach. >> this is the equivalent of a ceo of several of these banks
asking for bailouts and they go use other resources to have -- >> that's a harsh parallel to draw. >> i think it's one admirers and critics draw together. if you like spain and the culture, go to new mexico. americans are very concerned about the building the strength of the economic environment right now. i think every bit of that, including the influence of the first lady, really matters. >> i'll let you respond. we know the first lady can help the president and humanize him and help with public perception yet there's this backlash now. >> now question. i think we all liked it when mrs. obama is wearing a talbot's dress and i'm hoping she hasn't tossed them from her closet. i'm uncomfortable with the notion that in order to be a good american you have to surrender your passport and not go across the border. certainly if i were advising her would i suggest a different trip, sure, but we're not. >> an interesting fact, her poll numbers have been pretty good.
you want to look to your first lady obviously to help humanize your president but there's also a certain amount of glamour americans like in their first lady. exhibit a, first lady. is it so wrong to have a first lady who may want to perhaps explore new things and sprou americans to different things. >> sure, not at all. michelle obama to her credit has done important things. she was mom in chief. she's talking about family. she's talking about working moms, in many sense being a professional mom before this role and her approachability in fashion and style. but this is tone deaf when it comes to the economic reality of families. >> well, i have a feeling it will be one of many things we'll discuss as we gear up for november even if president obama is not ready for re-election yesterday. let me say, i appreciate you both being with us. just ahead, casual friday, can you take it too far? we'll help you find the right look for work at the end of the week when we return.

casual a distraction? >> i think some people have taken it a little too far. a good rule of thumb, unless you're a lifeguard, if it works at the beach or poolside, then it dent cut it at the office. >> reporter: before i left the button-up law firm i asked if my outfit would pass. >> everything is wrong. >> reporter: how many rules am i breaking? >> showing too much skin, first of all. >> reporter: this has to be higher? >> yes. jeans are jeans. i don't are to say anything more than they're jeans. sandals, no socks, the worst. you would not get past the downstairs desk. >> reporter: really? so, i'm fired? >> now, here to help us avoid any friday faux pas is "early show" contributor katrina szish. . >> hi. it it's important, it's friday, beach on the brain, but you
don't want people at the office to know that because it's a sure fire way to say -- >> i've already checked out. >> and i don't respect this workplace. bring a carry-on bag with you, change while you're walking out the door, but keep the beach separate from the boardroom. >> let's take a look at our denim don'ts. you have some denim don'ts. these are things you definitely don't want to be caught guilty of. >> as we saw, some offices don't allow denim at all. some do. weights most important you want to be careful what you wear it with. on the left we have something way too revealing, not appropriate for the office. you don't want your denim to have rips, frays or be exceptionally sandblasted. dark denim is the rule. guys, logo, sloppy tee shirrs, baggy jeans, running shoes, a big no. >> let's talk about denim dos if it's okay for denim in the summertime, what are our do looks? >> dark denim is the safest way to go. on blair we put her if some skinny jeans. toes are completely appropriate.
