7:01 am
she is here. >> and i'm erica hill. a gust up in the senate between arizona's governor and president obama. senator marco rubio breaks down the gop race in florida. >> first as we do every morning, we begin with a look at today's eye opener, your world in 90 seconds. >> just extremely excited that she was safe, out of there. >> reporter: family and friends anxiously await the return of jessica buchanan after a stunning somalia rescue by navy s.e.a.l.s. >> reporter: it was the same special operations unit that killed osama bin laden. >> i was in the middle of a sentence and he walked away. >> reporter: tension on the tarmac as arizona governor makes her point to president obama. >> she wrote about a meeting that the two had in the oval office and the president took exception to it. >> i felt a little bit threatened, if you will, in the attitude that he had.
7:02 am
i thought that he was very thin skinned. >> he's attached from his own reality what he has done. his words and actions are so different it's sometimes hard to believe. >> even when there's a fire inside mitt romney, it's still just a weird electrical fire. >> reporter: in a new interview, newt gingrich said when it comes to sex scandals,'s not as bad as bill clinton. >> he knew he was lying under oath. i didn't do the same thing. >> after hearing it bill clinton said, you've got that right, and high fived every guy on earth. >> reporter: a strong storm threatens portions of a gulf coast this morning. >> move fast. >> reporter: all that, and all that matters. >> anthony has admitted stealing lines from a hollywood move have i. >> we have serious challenges and we need serious people to solve them. >> on "cbs this morning." >> we are going to hollywood. >> you guys are here in hollywood, right. what do you think? it's a rat hole, right?
7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." we have new details of the navy s.e.a.l. rescue of two aid workers. one of them an american who were held hostage for nearly three months in somalia. >> this morning american jessica buchanan is recovering in italy. her grateful father tells cbs news she's doing okay. john miller has more. >> reporter: early wednesday morning two teams of navy s.e.a.l.s under the cover of darkness parathoughted out of an air force c 130 transport plane to the so he mallian city of kudado. from there they hiked nearly two miles to an encampment where nine pirates were killed. the s.e.a.l. team suffered no injuries. army helicopters then picked up the s.e.a.l.s and captives and flu them safely to the african nation. >> the fact that they were able to get in, get both of these hostages out, kill all nine bad guys and not get an american killed is just a tribute to how good these guys really are.
7:04 am
>> reporter: cbs news spoke to yes, sir ka buchanan's father, john, who spoke with his daughter tuesday night. she was emotional but she's good. she's got some health issues, not life threatening. she'll be fine. she said, daddy, i love you, and i'll be fine. buchanan was kidnapped, along with paul hoeg again thisted in october while working for a danish aid group. they reached out to the family through the aid organization. the families used private negotiators who worked in tandem with u.s. officials to secure their release. buchanan's father told us the fbi were looking over their shoulder the whole time. they were efficient, they were kind, they were just on top of everything. new intelligence that buchanan's health had gotten worse prompted the decision to use military force. meanwhile, half a world away president obama was preparing his state of the union address when he got word that s.e.a.l. team 6, the same team that had
7:05 am
killed osama bin laden in may, had recovered the two hostages. following the speech a white house staffer phoned buchanan's father and told him to wait for an important call. it was 40 minutes of not knowing what the call would be. a guy came on the phone and said, mr. buchanan, the next voice you will hear will be the president of the united states. i said, okay. he said, john, this is barack obama. i've got some really good news for you. your daughter, jessica, has been rescued and evacuated by our s.e.a.l. team and she's on her way home. this morning jessica buchanan is at the u.s. base in italy to be reunited with her family. her father told us, i'm just thrilled she's okay and she's back. it sounds corny, but i really am proud to be an american. we are the greatest country in the world. >> john miller's here now, along with former navy s.e.a.l. officer. his memoir, the heart and the fist was a best seller. lots of references to same unit
7:06 am
team 6. what does that mean? >> the same unit. everyone's trained in the same standards but within that unit you have several teams. whether or not it was actually the same personnel, we don't know. >> what goes into making this mission successful? >> well, jessica was taken hostage last october 25th. from the moment she was taken hostage, planning would have begun for a rescue operation. over the course of the past few months intelligence professionals have been trying to build a picture of exactly where she was and what her situation was while operators would have been rehearsing and practicing various contingencies so that when the time came for them to go they'd be ready. >> the thing you worry most about is surprise. >> you're absolutely right. you're worried about surprise, worried about speed, you're also worried about violence of action. three key principles for any successful operation. >> john, eric mentioned a bit how all of these different camps obviously would be working together to plan this rescue. give us a better idea. the father said the fbi was looking over our shoulder the whole time. how do they all work together?
7:07 am
>> at the beginning of a kidnapping case where you've got an american involved the fbi comes in right away. the critical incident response group brings in trained hostage negotiators and they are coaching the family or the family's representatives, that's what he means by over their shoulder, as the kidnappers call, what to say, whatnot to say, how to handle those conversations which nobody has much experience with. on the other hand, you've got the cia, you've got the national security agency pulling in human intelligence, signals intelligence and you have the national geo spatial intelligence agency pulling in all the overhead, spy planes, satellites, drones, and looking at that compound once somebody puts them on what passes for an address in somalia. and then you are looking at pattern of life. when is it busy there? how many people are on the property? do they have two-way radios? how are they armed? everything down to the last detail. the s.e.a.l.s come into this with special forces -- joint special forces command comes
7:08 am
into this early. all that information is passed around. they're out building a mockup of this building. they're practicing this raid in real time and in darkness. it's pretty interesting. >> is this the kind of thing that the president has to say, go, or would it be done by the secretary of defense or someone lower down. >> i would very strongly suspect that this was a presidential directive to actually execute this operation. it's an international operation. it is a high-risk operation because hostages are involved and this one happened to go very well, but there could have been severe consequences. i'd be very surprised that this wasn't something that the president said go. >> good to see you. thanks. president obama is out west today promoting his state of the union proposals, but he's making news this morning for a confrontation with arizona's republican governor. chief white house correspondent nora o'donnell is in las vegas. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the president was near phoenix to talk about manufacturing, but it's what happened on the tarmac
7:09 am
when air force one landed that now has everybody talking. >> reporter: arizona governor january brewer got right to the point wednesday in a heated exchange captured on the tarmac of phoenix airport. >> they had been talking about a lot of different things. bottom line is, is that he generally wants to talk about amnesty and i want to talk about securing our border. >> reporter: but it's brewer's finger that has tongues wagging. >> they always say that a picture is what it is, but i must say that i was not hostile. i was trying to be very, very gracious. i respect the office of the president, and i would never be disrespectful in that manner. >> reporter: brewer took a different tact on the record with greta van sustrin. >> he immediately took umbrage, if you will, with my book i wrote, "scorpions for breakfast," and was somewhat disgruntled, if you will, about the way he was portrayed in the
7:10 am
book i don't know why he was surprised by my book. he evidently is. he's very thin skinned. >> reporter: the president and the governor have a history of strained relations. here's brewer following a 2010 white house meeting. >> well, we just completed our meeting this afternoon. it was a very cordial discussion that was taking place. >> reporter: yet a year later in her book she recalled that same meeting quite differently. it was as though president obama thought he would lecture me and i would learn at his knee. he was patronizing. last january the two put aside their differences at this meeting, but it doesn't look like they'll be making up any time soon. >> reporter: the president said later he'd be glad to meet with governor brewer again but he couldn't resist the opportunity to point out that he thought her book inaccurately described that last white house meeting they had in 2010. charlie and erica? >> is this the end of this? >> reporter: it may not be. certainly the president is going
7:11 am
to be returning to arizona again because even though that is a red republican state, the president's political advisors think it can be a battleground state in 2012, in part because of the huge hispanic growth. >> what's this trip about? obviously it's coming right after the state of the union. president is hammering home the themes of the state of the union. >> reporter: that's right. three days he's going to five different swing states or battleground states. yesterday talking about manufacturing and jobs a key part of his state of the union address. today he's talking about clean energy here at a ups facility in las vegas. tomorrow it's education hammering all those themes. charlie, make no mistake, he is also talking about income inee kwaul laity, fair js, and trying to draw a razor sharp difference. >> nora, thanks so much. with less than a week to go the race for florida's republican primary is tighter than ever. both of the top contenders are targeting a vital group of
7:12 am
voters in that state. political correspondent jan crawford is in miami. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, erica. good morning to the west coast. romney and gingrich are battling it out for the key hispanic vote which could be decisive in this campaign. yesterday it took an ugly turn as sparks flu flews over immigration. gingrich sounded incredulous that illegal aliens should self deport, in other words, leave on their own. >> i think you have to live in a world of swiss bank accounts and cayman island accounts, and automatic $20 million a year income with no work to have some fantasy this far from reality. >> reporter: romney fired back saying gingrich is also on the record for supporting the idea that illegal immigrants will leave the country if they're denied work. >> i recognize that it's very tempting to come into an audience like this and to pan dor to the audience. that's unbecoming of a presidential candidate.
7:13 am
>> reporter: both candidates know the stakes. the latest polls show gingrich closing in on what was a double digit lead for romney. they're now separated by only two points. in a neck and neck race, hispanics who make up 12% of the republican vote in florida, could be decisive. gingrich went for the kill releasing a radio ad calling romney antiimmigrant. but it backfired. influential senator marco rubio scolded the former speaker for using what he said was inflammatory language. gingrich pulled the athd and later explained why he signed off on it in the first place. >> the idea that somebody would actually think about deporting grandfathers and grandmothers strikes me as fairly inhumane. that's how the ad got developed. >> reporter: romney said his focus is on people who come here legally and gingrich, he said, was over the top. >> there are differences between candidates on important issues, but we don't attack each other with those kind of terrible
7:14 am
terms. >> reporter: as you can see, the gloves have really come off. we can expect that shrugging to continue tonight. there is yet another presidential debate and as we talked about, gingrich has used those debates to fuel his campaign. you can expect him to take some tough shots at romney. >> jan, thanks. marco rubio is at capitol hill. good morning. >> good morning. >> could you add to the feeling that you had about this ad and whether it is behind you now? >> well, very simple. i was asked a comment on an ad i heard on the air. i didn't think the ad was accurate. i didn't think the ad had a place in our campaign down there in florida. i think it's important to point out to people that florida is not like other states. florida is a swing state. whoever wins this nomination nation, rick santorum, ron paul, newt gingrich, and they'll have to come back and win again. i want to make sure we don't have candidates saying things that we'll have to come back later on and defend or clean up in the fall. i wouldn't characterize it as
7:15 am
scolding. i was asked my opinion about an ad. i made my opinion. i think speaker gingrich made the right decision. i've known speaker gingrich a long time. i think he made the right choice. i think he has a positive message to offer not just to hispanics but all-americans and all floor riddians. i encourage him to do that. >> hispanic voters are leaning towards which candidate, romney or gingrich? >> i don't know the answer to that. i'm not a pollster. i don't follow the polls. you know better than i do. let me say this about americans of hispanic descent. immigration is an important issue. people should understand that for the vast majority of days of the year you don't wake up in the morning and immediately start thinking about that. what's on people's minds is what's on your mind and my mind and everybody else's mind, that is, how am i going to provide for my family? how can i give my kids the chance to do all the things i myself could not do. what i encourage our candidates to do is to speak to that, particularly as they are doing, i think, embrace the american free enterprise system which has made us a nation where those
7:16 am
dreams have been accomplished more than anywhere else in the world in the history of the world. i think that's where we win. i think that's where we're different than president obama and his party. >> you're also a very successful politician from the state of florida with a career there. you know floridans. you're rumored to be a potential amitriptyline vice presidential candidate. >> close. close. that's why i want florida -- that's why we all wanted florida in florida to move up in the presidential primary cycle. what you are watching now is all the major issues that our country is facing are being confronted in florida and are being confronted in a major way. obviously you talk about the issues of immigration that are important to many americans of hispanic descent. the issues of economy, housing kriegs sis. yesterday they had to give foreign policy speeches on latin america. all these issues are pertinent in florida. isn't that what our candidates should be speaking about? >> you have spoken to the vice president before on these issues. is there anything else to say about it if you're offered it.
7:17 am
it's impossible to have a conversation with you without asking that question to see if anything else has changed. >> listen, it's very flattering. it is flattering. the bottom line is i'm focused on two things, number one is my job at the u.s. senate. we have major issues going on up here. secondly, i'll do -- i want to help the nominee. i look forward to campaigning around the country. i don't think it's going to be a as a vice presidential no, ma'am me. >> a quick question. you said the most important issue to voters in your home state is how they'll provide for their family. which of the candidates has the best message and the best plan to help people in florida and around the country do that? >> yeah. nice try. >> it's good. she's good, isn't she, senator? >> yeah. what i'm impressed by is if you go back to last summer when they started this process and where they are today, you have seen them grow which is why these campaigns are such a good experience. i think they are all offering good plans. i hope they'll focus on that. i get it. campaigns people are going to
7:18 am
try to draw distinctions. there should be boundaries. ultimately i think they're all offering some concrete ideas. here's the bottom line of none of them are the current president who i know for a fact is taking this country in a very bad direction. >> you have also called him, senator, divisive. what is is it about him that you think is divisive. >> did you see

everything for you, then affair of heart and hits you with something on the new album and then when you think -- jesse's girl and it goes nuts. >> mr. stewart has it right. welcome back to "cbs this morning." >> since the great recession began, many americans cut back on their travel. members of congress, however, still globetrotting. in many cases, other people are paying for it. the question here, are they breaking any rules? investigative correspondent cheryl at ki son takes a closer look at a story you'll only see on "cbs this morning." >> last february shall the house of representatives had just slashed 60 billion in spending. there were threats of a government shutdown and what did some members of congress do next? they jetted off to puerto rico. 13 of them to the intercontinental san juan resort and casino.
7:32 am
most took spouses and children. all expenses paid thanks to a private nonprofit called the aspen institute. according to a new report, congress members took 1600 educational trips like these in 2011. all sponsored by private nonprofits and foundations raising lots of questions about why they're taking so many trips and who benefits from them. jacque freedly, the public interest group that compiled the report said the trips cost $5.8 million last year. >> when the private interests are taking members of congress and staff on the trips, they are definitely showing only one side of the story. >> freedly said it violates the spirit of reform made in 2007 after jake abramoff. -- groups that don't lobby can still fund trips. jim clark represents many groups that pay for congressional travel. >> whether that's overseas in afghanistan or if that's
7:33 am
overseas seeing some new technology or something that's going to help us, they should be involved there. >> the aspen institute which sponsored the puerto rico forum and spent a half million dollars on congressional trips to see vienna, canada and barcelona told us it education members of congress, builds relationships in civil discourse and accepts no corporate or special interest funding. unlike the aspen institute, foundations or other groups that do have corporate or lobbyist ties are paying for some trips. >> lobbyists found the foundation. they sit on the board of the foundation. because that foundation itself does not lobby, it's allowed. >> is that a distinction without a difference? >> it could be to some people, yes. >> one example he gives is the group that broke the all-time record or spending in a single year. the american israel education foundation. $2 million for 145 trips to israel. they don't lobby. but they share offices, a phone number and p.r. person with a
7:34 am
giant lobby called the american lsh israel public affairs committee. when we asked them about it, no government money pays for the congressional trips andy verse views are presented they told us. >> groups that loib and corporations are the middlemen or foundations that are set up that then do pay for the congressional travel. critics say that's skirting the intent of the rules. >> i'm not going to defend that practice. what i'm going to say, it seems like it is what the law allows. if that's not what congress' intent is, they should review their processes. >> looking at all types of privately funded congressional travel, it was up from the year before. the seven most frequent flyers are all democrats. jim mcdermott led the way with ten. sin will most expensive trip is john carter. they went to africa and
7:35 am
botswana. the biggest total bill goes to democrat jim cooper. his six privately funded trips including barcelona and india totaled more than $47,000. carter told us the africa trip was so expensive because he had to fly from afghanistan where he was on a work trip. the other members we spoke to assured us the trips were educational and in full compliance with ethics rules. >> sharyl attkisson is with us now. welcome. tell me whether you think congress will do anything about this? >> they have a chance to revisit ethics rules. let me emphasize, they make their own rules. if they don't see a problem with privately funded travel, they won't do anything about it. >> will they in fact with the pressure that public attention can bring look at it again? >> it's hard to tell. the only thing that makes them want to change things is a big scandal or huge amount of public pressure. there hasn't been the upswell like during the abramoff
7:36 am
scandal. we'll have to see how it gets. >> what the connection between travel and what happens in congress. >> it's hard to draw a direct line. one thing that was told to us, a staffer who was at a foreign country, treated well by a group, said upon her return, she made sure her member goes in for a vote even though she has to pull him out of a meeting. it has influence on the members. >> there is good information and some information that you can use from these trips that might lead to you have a better look at legislation? >> absolutely. they may get one side of an issue, but get edge indicated on something they wouldn't otherwise hear about. tensions rising between the west and iran. lara logan is here to talk about that. also, a call for negotiation. you're watching "cbs this morning."

look at iraq. through the power of our
7:41 am
diplomacy, a world that was once divided about how to deal with iran's nuclear program now stands as one. the regime is more isolated than ever before. leaders are faced with crippling sanctions and as long as they shirk their responsibilities, this pressure will not relent. let there be no doubt, america is determined to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon and i will take no options off the table to achieve that goal. >> president obama mentioning a serious issue in his state of the union address. tension has been building now for weeks between the u.s. and iran over iran's nuclear program. >> iran is threatening to close the strait of hormuz and choke off oil exports as a protest. iran's president is ready for new talks this morning. we want to look at the key issues with chief correspondent lara logan in washington. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> does this mean that the
7:42 am
iranian president believes that sanctions and covert action are having an impact and, therefore, iran is hurting or is it simply one more move to delay and delay and delay? >> you know, charlie, it probably means both of these things. at the same time, the iranian government wants you to believe that sanctions are not having any impact and never will, clearly their currency has been in free fall. it dropped 350% in value. there's always a reason they want to come to the table. if you look at the history, they do this over and over again. they're masters at buying more time, giving their allies just enough to keep resisting completely comprehensive sanctions. they've got china on their side and russia on their side. they're masters at this game. it probably doesn't mean anything really significant. >> what about the impact of the covert action, the killing of nuclear scientists, of the

killing of the military officer, if that in fact was done by source outside of iran? >> well, you're absolutely right, charlie. this was one of the most fascinating aspects of what's going on in iran. there was the explosion at the iranian missile base last year. there was a computer virus that really set the nuclear program back significantly. and you know, this clearly demonstrates that nobody, somebody definitely doesn't believe that sanctions alone are enough to prevent iran getting a nuclear weapon. and that certainly has an impact. some people argue that it can make the iranians buying together and resist and can backfire or it can strengthen iranian commit am. the counter argument is that iran seems pretty determined and they've shown how committed they are. >> the interesting question is when will the united states or israel make a decision that sanctions and covert action in whatever form, has not achieved the results and they crossed the red line, when is that going to
7:44 am
happen? >> well, you know, because most people believe that you can't prevent iran from getting a nuclear wep on, you could argue that they will reach that at some point. they're going to reach that conclusion because iran is going to keep taking steps and move forward. unless they can be absolutely con v convinced that they're not doing that, at some point that decision will be clear. the other thing that could happen, that could intervene along the way is that everyone seems to be set on a path. there is a fear that something random, some act could escalate the situation completely. something that people are not expecting. that could drive united states or israel to action. clearly, israel has far greater incentives to act here than the u.s. they want this to be everybody's problem. not just their problem. >> erica? >> how much does the global community feel that it is everybody's problem or are they in some ways happier to sit back
7:45 am
and let israel an the u.s. deal with it? >> as with everything, erica, every country has its own self-interests at heart and first and seems to put that ahead of everything else. so people like the chinese who get a huge amount of oil from iran are much more reticent about applying sanctions. russia who is interested in

8:04 am
lunches haven't changed in 15 years. >> one of the big issues really is the big companies. they have a big interest to make sure their products, what the kids eat is what they sell. believe me, the big company are not selling you broccoli and are not selling you fish. they are selling you products that can never go bad. they can be on school shelves for weeks at a time. that's what we are feeding our children. nutrients that are not necessarily food. >> when you say these big companies, obviously, you agree with the changes. you are working with first lady michelle obama. plenty of people don't agree with what's going on. are you saying there's a large lobbying organization to put pressure on lawmakers to say, step back? >> yes. it is not like i'm working within the system of the first lady, i'm one of thousands of chefs around the country that we are supporting hands-down what
8:05 am
the first lady, the white house and the administration wants to do. so, yes, i mean, the simple issue here is that we have the interest of the children in the backbrper. children are first. children should be fed in the right way. and 40% of the meals that children eat at the school, it is very important that the foods we eat at school are the right ones. if not, we won't have a healthy country. >> you may have heard leading into this segment sarah palin and rush limbaugh who made the political point parents should do this. these are good objectives. none of the children, healthy children, nutritious meals, but it is not the government's role, it's the parents' role. >> this is the big republican lie. the republican lie will tell you government shouldn't be in charge of feeding america. the government is doing it right now, it is something called subsidies.
8:06 am
and the big businesses receive huge amounts of subsidies. over $20 billion a year over the last five, six, seven years. so the government, because congress is creating that system is somehow saying what america is receiving. >> you can do something about the subsidies and still raise the question as to whether the government should be dictating rather than parents taking the lead role in the kind of food that their children eat. >> you're right, charlie, but hre we need more than one angle to fight obesity. and the parents are very important, but we need to train the parents. because you are a parent doesn't mean you come with a title, i know how to feed my children. so here is parents in one part, the big argribusiness is one part, but the school and the school lunches, it's important. we have many million children that they depend on the meal.
8:07 am
sometimes children, the only meal they have during the day is the one they receive from the school. if it is not fruits and vegetables we will not have healthy children. >> in school there's an idea that means in place of the parent at that moment. >> i definitely feel guilty because i know i didn't do nutrition right in my home and i'm paying for it now, but you say it could be a matter of national security, which is a very interesting point. >> well, i'm not saying that, more than 260 generals are involved in this issue. they created an organization and they call it mission readiness. and they are asking congress to take the special school lunches as a series matter. why not national security? because today the military is having a big, big problem making

in today'she in today's "healthwatch" the rise of the introvert. most of the time the louder, the more outgoing you are the more attention you're going to get, but now very powerful people are reminding us to think before we speak. >> in fact, pope benedict, the pope himself said yesterday that silence is very, very important. it helps us to understand ourselves writer susan cain is here. her new book is called "quiet: the power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking." also jeff glor is here.
8:14 am
so what's this? >> i think there's a driving thought here. this is something i saw when susan's book was coming out. and i just picked it up and couldn't stop reading it because i think it is fascinating, the idea susan latched on to here. this has been in the works for, what, six years? >> yes, i've been researching this book for six years. >> why do it? >> well, it was very clear to me -- it's been clear my whole life because i'm an introvert, but it's been clear to me that introverts live in a world where many of them are trying to pass as extwoverts. and the latest statistics show a third to a half of all americans are introverts. a third to a half. and that's surprising because so many people are passing as something they are not. >> but people normally think introvert means you're shy or lonely or like being alone and you're saying that's not necessarily true. i'm curious about you, too, jeff, why it resonates with you because i would never think of you as an introvert. >> there's a misconception with this that i talked about with susan quite a bit.
8:15 am
there's the impression that an introvert is a hermit and doesn't necessarily come out and is shy. that's not necessarily the case. it's the stimulation, how much you prefer. and i think i prefer a smart, quiet conversation like this as opposed to thumping in a club and cocktail party where you can't move. i think susan prefers the same thing. >> that's right. there really is that conception that introversion is about being anti-social. what i always say is, no, it's a different way of being social. so that's just the thing, the introvert would rather have a glass of wine with a friend as opposed to going to the club. >> most people say, what's the perfect evening, they say a great dip we are friends. that's the kind of thing you're talking about here. >> exactly. >> look at this "time" magazine just out on the newsstands tomorrow. the power of shyness. are these things connected? >> that's an important connection. shyness and introvertness are different. introversion is a preference for
8:16 am
quiet and minute mall y environments. both are careful and sensitive. and it has all benefits that we tend to undervalue in this culture. >> what's the definition of introvert? >> yeah, that's a fantastic question. an introvert is simply somebody stimulated environment. mally - >> would that be you? >> and the pope, by the way. >> i thought that was very interesting. do you think that more powerful leaders are introverts or a different kind of leader? i thought that was interesting. >> it is very interesting. they are a different kind of leader. and we tend to believe that the model of leadership is something very bold -- right, so many of those leaders in history and in our current business life have been and are introverts. >> who's the best example of that? >> out there, barack obama, mitt romney, ron paul, all
8:17 am
introverts. newt gingrich is an extravert. >> you look at obama and romney, much of what they have done -- much of what enabled them to get to the place they are at today is their introversion. they are nope for careful and meticulous planning of their campaigns. they have cerebral styles. >> we are out of time. before we go back to gayle, this is interesting to me. are more women or men introverts? >> that's an interesting question. there are slightly more men who are introverts. 53% men, 51% women. >> take that. >> charlie, i'm actually very shy. thank you very much. good to see you guys. >> jcpenney is ringing up new strategy, no more sales. they are cutting prices on everything permanently. we'll find out if that's what shoppers really want. i'm thinking, yeah, we do. you're watching "cbs this morning." >> announcer: "cbs healthwatch"

a new accident southbound 880 by lewelling boulevard. there was one lane blocked.
8:28 am
traffic is slow in the area. this is the nimitz northbound 880 near the coliseum but obviously it is socked in with fog. so it is hard to see but it is going to be kind of slow. slow and go in those northbound lanes between 238 heading out past downtown oakland exit towards the macarthur maze. a lot of fog this morning crossing the golden gate bridge and a little sluggish in the southbound lanes. the far outer lanes as you approach the pay gates. northbound traffic is fine. check out the backups still coming out of downtown san jose. we have seen a couple of earlier accidents there so it's backed up from downtown towards cupertino. all right. with more on the foggy forecast, here's lawrence. >> very gray around parts of the bay area right now. starting to break up in spots. let's get a live shot toward pleasanton. you can see a couple of breaks in the fog out there but it is going to take some time to break up today. and i think at the coast not much in the way of clearing. at the beaches right now we're also seeing drizzle there. temperatures staying fairly mild overnight mainly into the 50s. by the afternoon, though, we should sneak in a little sunshine as high as 63 degrees
8:29 am
in san jose today. 62 in livermore. and you will see that 50s and the fog toward the coastline. but i think things change over the next couple of days. high pressure building in. the offshore winds are going to blow. that will warm temperatures over the weekend staying mild toward the afternoon.

8:32 am
florida statute, any professional sports facility can constructed with financial assistance from the state shall be designated as a shelter for the homeless. in the 23-year history, the law has never been enforced, that angers florida senator mark bennett who sponsored a bill demanding that teams return the money if they can't prove they've been in compliance with the law. >> we should not be taking taxpayers' money to support these professional sports. the rule was you took the money, you were supposed to have use for a program for homeless people and you didn't do it. we want our money back. >> across the state, professional sports teams received over $270 million taxpayer dollars. lawmakers like bennett say teams haven't done anything in return. in the wake of rising ticket and parking prices, something needs to change. >> we're cutting monday r foi medicaid and education. cutting money for homeless programs and shelters and all
8:33 am
these other things. we're saying you know what, maybe we should ask for the money back. >> in a statement, the miami heat spokesperson said that the american airlines basketball arena has never operated as a homeless shelter due to the intensity of arena activity and physical layout. the fact that the arena is in a flood and evacuation zone. critics say the bill has little chance of passing. but the showdown over taxpayer dollars could have an effect on how new stadiums are built. for "cbs this morning," anna werner, cbs thus news, miami. shifting gears, husbands and wives nagging their way through marriage. it's a staple of tv sitcoms. >> come on, al, i want you to go with me. >> why? >> keep the men from leering at me. >> they're not leering at you, they're laughing at me, peg. >> honey, i really have to go.

8:35 am
that's the issue. it will bring down many more marriages. we roll our eyes when we think of it. but it brings down marriages if you don't deal with it. >> you say that nagging has gone multiplatform. >> this is the thing. it used to be, you'd ask your husband to do something. but now, i can text him and then if he doesn't text right back, i'm going to e-mail him at home, work. i'm going to call him. he's got three phones. it can drive you knit. >> erica, you're a married lady. >> tom is a brave married man sitting with three women. i mean, look, part of it -- you brought it up in your columns. we talked about it in the green room. we need to know that things are going to get done. you get that right, tom? >> look, this is the problem. you get married because you think it's going to be all romance and there is that part of it. there's that romance and all that. but when you are in a marriage, what a marriage really is, you get involved with mortgages and

8:37 am
it's all annoying. it's always annoying. >> wait. >> but you don't say that to your wife, you don't say that to the boss. that's what your friends and dog is for. your wife complains and nags you. you say okay, and you take the dogs for walks. i can't believe she's talking to me like that. the dog agrees. you walk into the house with the dry cleaning. you say here it is, your highness. anything else that i can do for you? i'm telling you, the whole thing runs great. you're not any happier. don't worry about that. >> but she is. >> she is. >> which in turn makes you happier. what kind of response have you had? we saw this column yesterday and we were all -- what have you heard from people in. >> it's interesting. i hear because it's a journal. a lot of men will write. the men will say here's the problem. no matter what i do, i'm wrong. that's the feeling that men have. no matter what i -- she asks me to do, i'm always in trouble. they say that. but i have a lot of men say, i learn to just step up. if i do it, then she won't nag me anymore. i learn to step up.
8:38 am
>> do your job. >> are women the only one that is nag? don't men nag too? >> sure, for sex. they also -- they do nag. but there are reasons. women are more a tune, the bosses of the home and in tune and got to get everything done. >> you're a guy. just like the -- at work, the boss will make employee of the month once in a while, tell you, you're doing a good job. you'll get that. >> i think, elizabeth, you said something helpful to people. the i and the you rule. could you just explain that for people. when you're in the middle of a conversation, whether you should use i or you should use you and things you should never say. >> exactly. this is over and over. this is a good way to have an argument. nagging is arguing. instead of saying you never take out the garbage, honey, you never do this. you say, i would love for you to take out the garbage honey and it's important to me, because it stinks. you want to put it on yourself and explain why it's important
8:39 am
to you. i. >> the same way i talk to my children. you're like another child in the house. it really is. >> as long as you know that, we're all okay. >> thank you both. >> we will never forget her in fatal attraction. you remember. that alex character that glenn close played. he she kept everybody shall men, from being cheater, cheater pumpkin eaters. that was one of her characters. she received an oscar nomination for her latest. she'll tell us about ,,,,

thinking i might purchase a real business. >> ah, a business. fancy that. what kind of a business? >> perhaps a little shop. >> all right. what kind of a shop?
8:42 am
>> i'm thinking maybe tobacco. >>. >> but a woman could serve at the counter in. >> yes, indeed a woman could. >> did you recognize her? another year and yet another oscar nomination for the one and only glenn close. this time is for her performance in albert nobbs where she plays a woman posing as a man in 19th century ireland. >> it's been close to her heart for some 30 years. we're pleased to have glenn close here this morning. welcome. >> thank you. >> why this role was such a thing that you had to do? >> well, i first played albert over 30 years ago in a little off-broadway house in manhattan theater club. every night you had a very intimate relationship to what was going on stage and what people were feeling in the audience. every night the seemingly stim
8:43 am
am story blind sided the audience emotionally. i love stories like that. that kind of build up on you and end up really making an emotional connection with an audience. that's what -- what i think everybody wants is some sort of emotional journey. >> congratulations on your oscar nomination. >> thank you. >> please tell me you were awake and watching and you weren't sleeping and you had no idea or you didn't know it was oscar day. please tell me, glenn. >> i was actually having a lovely cup of green tea latte around the corner in the west village with my husband and we were talking about probably, you know, making fuel out of algae. >> you can do that, you know. >> as we all do. >> and then the phone rang and i was thinking about algae and all of a sudden it was oscar nomination. >> you've had a tony, you have emmys, but the oscar nomination, even though you've been
8:44 am
nominated, it's eluded you. what does it mean in is there a part of you that thinks on the day of the oscar, please let them call my name, please? do you feel that? >> you know, i have never allowed myself to buy into the winner/loser. >> you haven't? >> i haven't. because at that level, you know, to me -- >> everybody's a winner. >> everybody is a winner. i know that sounds unreal. but i really feel that. >> you talked about the emotional connection that really hooked you with albert nobbs and hooked the audience. you can see it in your performance. one of the things that was amazing to me, so much of what we get from you, the connection you seem to create is through your eyes and your face and not even your words sometime. but literally your presence on the screen. how do you perfect that part of your craft? >> i learned quite quickly the
8:45 am
power of thought on film. particularly in what only film has, which is the close-up. the close-up is a moving, real time representation of some emotion going across a human being's face. the greatest challenge for me to do a character like albert on film was to know that the close-up has the potential to look into your soul. this is a woman who has not allowed herself to look into anyone's eyes for 30 years. >> your daughter is in this too. >> yes. >> what was that like? >> well, you know, i'm very proud, actually. when people say oh, your daughter wants to be an actress, i feel like saying, you're talking about a professional of 30 years. i think i learned less by working with phenomenally gifted people and phenomenally generous
8:46 am
and to not wish that on my daughter, would be -- it doesn't make sense. but the one thing that i worry about is how hard it is for your personal life. it's a terrible balancing act. >> could i just ask you, i know wee got to go, about fatal attraction. to this day, i love the character alex. i saw the movie my husband, who is now my ex-husband. see what happened? do you still find women come up to you and say thank you, glenn, for that role. thank you, thank you. >> it's really interesting. it's mostly men that come up to me and say -- >> you're my nightmare? >> yeah. and you saved my marnl. >> mostly men? >> kr do you like so much, gayle? >> because i think it sends such a message for men in particular about how going outside the marriage is not a good thing. he thought it was going to be a one nightstand. or you'll end up many places you
8:47 am
don't want to go. i think it was a great advertisement. i'm saying nothing personal about my own life here. but i'm just saying i thought it was a service to many people. that's all i'm saying, charlie rose. >> unfortunately, we have to leave it at that. we're getting cued. >> i won't be ignored. >> that's right. >> thank you and good luck and congratulations. albert nobbs is in theaters now. >> she won't be ignored, charlie. gabrielle giffords is another extraordinary woman. we'll have a special look at the former congresswoman who has inspired so many after facing tragedy. you are watching "cbs this morning." ,,,,

8:52 am
republicans and democrats can come together from the house speaker to one of the leaders of the democrats and debbie wasserman coming together to say there are times in which everything goes beyond politics. >> it was so good to see, you guys, one of my favorite moment was barack obama before the state of the union, had they did that rocking hug. because it was a genuine tender hug. you never see that. >> interesting, too, two of the most poignant moments we've seen of congress coming together over the last few months. gabby giffords showed up for that first time to vote. and then when we saw her at the state of the union and to give her resignation. everyone calls her gabby. >> probably never seen -- i can't imagine a time in which there have been more tears, more congressmen and women than there was in appreciation of her. a great story as she goes for recovery. that does it for us. we'll see you tomorrow on "cbs this morning". we'll see you tomorrow on "cbs this morning". are a great day. -- captions by vitac --
