but this is quickly as this snow man was gone so too was this christmas daylight the mass exodus of those enjoying their holiday lining up in the face of a hard drive down the hill. >> i got to go snow boarding today and stuff but on the road it kind of not really ideal. >> reporter: but worth it hope as the chains go on that memories of a sierra christmas remain. >> nice white christmas. >> reporter: chain controls are expected to be in place here on interstate 80 throughout night even if they are not you are expected to have them in your car ready to be put on in a moments notice. in truckee, derek shore, cbs 5 news. >> those chain requirements are in effect on the main sierra highways, interstate 80, chains between baxter and 12 miles
east of truckee highway 50, cyprus to meyers, four wheel drive vehicles with snow tires are permitted. >> planning on hitting the malls you will find a lot of post christmas bargains retailers are trying to build on momentum from a robust holiday season. i guess very is relatively speaking. they predict holiday spending will exceed $450 million an increase of more than 3% over last year figures coming in at the same time broader economic reports show fewer layoffs more business order have also come in lately. well, san jose tap water is by no means alone when it comes to high levels of chromium six. you may recall last week an environmental group ranked san jose's water fifth highest for levels of the chemical, lynneninged to -- linked to cancer but norman oklahoma topped that list. they only studied 35 cities
nationwide. according to mercury news, a decade long survey by the state shows thousands of water sources in california have higher levels than san jose. glendale, burbank and north hollywood among the highest. another update from a big story, san francisco airport denying allegations by an airline pilot that security is lacking. the story posted on youtube are baseless and misleading they say. the pilot who is no longer based in san francisco showed what he called examples of lax security. airport personnel can go into secure areas without being checked while flight crews face rigorous screening he took part in a federal anti terrorism program before resigning last week. california highway patrol is refusing to release the

than to receive. >> she really has a great heart. >> reporter: in dixon, cbs 5. well, christmas may be over now but the holidays are still in full swing. today is boxing day. something you may have only experienced by looking at a calendar it is a holiday observing served in canada, britain and other parts of the world there are various purposes of it, including it is just a day of giving to those less fortunate. rahm emanuel is getting some help cnn reporting former president bill clinton will endorse and campaign for him in january he served in the clinton white house five years before becoming a member of congress. now he is pushing ahead with mayoral campaign after a favourable ruling from chicago board of elections they said thursday he is ' chicago resident despite spending a lot of time in washington.
>> bill clinton doing him a favour you can get if elected he will do clintons a few. speaking of favours, president obama only time will tell how the new congress is going to effect his agenda next year. the president has long been the target of criticism but that has shifted now that he is playing ball it seems with the other team. >> that has gotten him criticism i sat down with willie brown and asked him okay the president's realist dealings with republicans, up or down good or bad? >> well, he had an incredible incredible week when you go from doing something about an arms treaty with the russians follow that up with don't ask don't tell and then cap it completely, with silence coming from the republican side on the taxeme jury the only thing you lose -- measure is the only thing you lose is the dream, business of transitioning from illegal immigrant to acceptable human being it is a great week.
>> interesting because all those things were in the works, and it was pretty clear they were going to go, but media and politicians acted as if this guy was going down in flames mid-term. >> you had a number of people in congress leaving, and on the way out the door they really did want to be associated with something they have been pushing for all the two years of his first administration. >> all right but come january he is going to have a new congress they are going to be less friendly republicans will be in charge of the house, he will be right back to troubled waters again. >> except that it may be to his advantage all of a sudden he will not be singly to blame for all the failures it will not be an internal fight in his own party there is no body practically left to fight. it is like a room with no -- >> he gets to run against the republicans. >> challenged in every sense of the word on every issue and he can distinguish himself because
i think in facto he will be on the side of the american people you will see the tea party within the republican party creating problems for republicans. >> they will push him in one direction you thing it will alienate him for most of the americans. >> no question they will be demonstrated all of what sarah palin is about that is only one third america. >> on that front, the -- what america is all about is where they live these days california for the first time in anybody's memory did not grow in population what does that mean for our congressional delegation? >> one we stay where we are on the congressional side and decade after decade we have been expanding our influence with pure numbers. texas picked up two new seats, florida picked up two new seats. ohio lost two, new york lost two. it is not a good day for us in addition, federal dollars distributed on the basis of
pure unadulterated population figures. that means our numbers may have stabilize, we may not look for growth, we may not be able to project growth in federal money. >> final question given that, how important are we going to be in the presidential race in two years hey, that is california out there on its own or recording us? >> no, i suspect that barack obama will start claiming california, as his new home. >> reporter: how many homes does he have? now hawaii. >> well, i don't think he will go to one of those red states any more i think he will think of the blue states and california is the bluest of all blues. >> true. >> well, as he pointed out california is bluest of blues but under this new census when we count how in people are in states, we are losing power to florida and texas. so watch out, because we watch
for democrats and other people in california, to try to take those census figures to court and get them reworked some how because it wasn't fair. >> if they are not successful how will this loss of power effect us? >> s will of money. you get less money out of the feds they will try to even it up. >> less money at a time when we need money. all right speaking of the east coast, a lot of snow coming down right now and that is a travel nightmare for people trying to make it home from grandma's house. >> when weekend edition continues another powerful winter storm pelts most of the u.s. >> also ahead trouble for people trying to fly back home for christmas as we mentioned airlines canceling flights, hundreds of them because of the weather. pgh >> what about the weather here in the bay area? lawrence with the forecast that you will have to take all the way into 2011

the chains. come monday they will catch a break from some of that snow but as we head toward tuesday a chance of more snow on the way and more after that as well. we have a series of storms lining up off the coastline one moving through yesterday, more showers on the way throughout the day today, as this starts to move its way on through. keep things unsettled for the better part of today as we head in toward the evening hours a couple scattered showers likely to continue. with that in mind, let's roll the clock forward as we turn to morning hours, more widely scattered showers. head toward noontime hour a batch of rainfall, our computer models, parts of north bay and spreading into central bay as well more scattered showers will continue on and off as we head in toward the afternoon, keep things unsettled and on the cool side around the bay area w. that in mind if you are headed out the door you may want to bring your umbrella with you.
keep temperatures down. cool 50s out toward the coastline blustery and breezy out toward the beaches. warmest temperatures inside the bay in oakland, 57 degrees or so, alameda, north bay temperatures running up into the 50s. a cool, brisk day outside and speaking of which, we will take a hit toward the middle of the week. may get a break monday, tuesday more showers, rain overnight wednesday cold storm dives in, low snow levels down to a couple thousand feet late wednesday into thursday more rain expected in the next weekend that is a look at weather back to you. sounds good. thanks lawrence. san francisco in a peculiar situation. mainly because it holds local elections in odd numbered years and now it has a mayor who accepted a bigger job, he was threatening to stay longer at the job he was leaving. >> he is concern d about who is going to take over after he leaves the current board of
supervisors picks the interim mayor to succeed gavin newsom. it will be the new board in january, on january 8th. >> why? >> the mayor will stick around i think there is a belief that new board will elect someone, who the mayor and those who support the mayor will be a little more comfortable with. >> so you don't see much of a chance of the current board which is rather on the left leaning side putting together the votes and getting a filibuster. >> they could stay in but that vote means nothing as long as the mayor stays in office and then when their time ends january 8th, at noon and the new board is sworn in the mayor could resign. >> this is a little complicated sounds like the mayor himself is holding a lot of cards on this. >> he said publicly he wants a
nonpolitical care taker type administrator to take over for the final term. who do you see fitting that bill? >> two big names, mike hen see our sheriff and ed herton, -- herrington. former mayor brown has been thrown out as someone who could do the job and not come back in november but if two leaders are hen see and herring on the. >> as far as you go what are you looking for as interim mayor. >> i like the idea of someone not worried about re-election politics because next year's budget will be more difficult than the last three put together and if i got someone in room 200 worried, if i make this cut, then maybe local 798 firefighters are not going to endorse me. might make it more difficult to
make the cut in fire department or if you are worried about cuts in the health department, worried about service employees all kinds of political calculations go into budget cuts and if you have a mayor not as worried about that and can do the right thing, i think we would be in a good place. >> you certainly help the supervisors out. >> taking the hatchet to all of these, you get to sit back for a year >> it certainly helps but we need someone who has it in their head who recognizes when their year is done they will be hated andville fied but 10 years from now they will be recognized as one of the best mayors the city has had. >> he just mentioned willie brown i know he is a big bud of your what is are the chances? >> slim and none. couldn't take the pay cut. >> what about phil matier? >> no way, he would be right behind. >> interesting. we will be right back after this break ,, it's really delicious, mom.

norman oklahoma topped that list with a level 10 times that of san jose but environmental working group only studied 35 cities nationwide according to mercury news, a decade long survey by the state, shows thousands of water sources in california have higher levels of chromium six than san jose. among the highest, down in southern california, glendale, burbank, north hollywood. republicans going to benefit most from next month's big changes to our government. but on the state level, democrats still manage to not only maintain control but increase numbers. i sat with willie brown and a smith who engineered those key campaigns and asked what were the lessons we learned from the november election. >> if the entire ball game in california, winning elections is how you do with the
independent voters where republicans have missed it, they don't understand fundamentally this group, which makes up 20% of the electorate is fundamentally socially liberal. so you can't use the old playbook. that is why it failed them. what you are talking about is deline costates, they are not republicans, not democrats, swing voters is what we are talking about. >> yes. >> swing voters have always been characterized on the conservative side but these past elections they went staunchly blue. >> well, the pun dents have programmed them as if they were on the conservative side but we who run, hang out in campaigns have always known that was a hidden asset on the liberal side if you really played the game well. let me tell you, one more thing that occurred in this last election, i think if you go back and look at numbers probably the highest level of participation ever in the
history of this state by latinos that speaks well for going forward in the future, because the moderate delivery system in this state is going to be heavily influenced, by the immigrants and in particular latino immigrants. >> if you were the tackty san let's address those two issues first of all where are the liberal swing is voters? >> in the bay area and up the i- 80 corridor. >> this is where you can swing an election? everybody thought it was central valley. >> that used to be true maybe in the days but the fact of the matter is, if you look at -- this is surprising, the highst number of declining state voters in call foreign gentleman and county of san -- california, and county of san francisco, -- >> growing. >> what about the latino group, percentage wise that is growing but can that deliver election? >> well, it did for hillary clinton. it is a huge powerful block.
look at los angeles. >> ace did not the latino vote as well influence hillary's position in texas and one or two other states. >> no question about it. >> so if it is latinos and independents what other group? >> the other group not on the asen dependency but just a hidden power are women voters and in california, especially in democratic primary, wholly 55% of the vote will be women. there is great hidden power in latinos, women. interesting point there is if you are going to win the democratic primary you need to get your women voters and latino voters behind you statewide you have to get this group called independents, liberal on social issues,
conservative on fiscal. both republicandemocrats tried to get them, and it was the democrats that did. >> okay well, then it looks like the want for the social liberalism is out. >> yes, because remember the republicans were saying you might not love me on social but like me on the fiscal >> it will be interesting as we see things progress everyone is hacking their butt >> yeah. >> how much the fiscal thing will come in next time around. >> we have other elections. >> yes, former white house chief of staff, rahm emanuel getting high profile help in his run for mayor of chicago. former president bill clinton will endorse and campaign for emanuel in january. he served in the clinton white house for five years before becoming a member of congress and then serving as obama's chief of staffer now he is pushing ahead with this mayoral campaign after a favourable ruling from the board of
