7:03 am
is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning, norah. an historic day. >> good morning to you, charlie. it is indeed. >> we begin with that memory 50 years ago today, a shocking unthinkable crime stunned america and the world. this morning, we remember president john f. kennedy and his wife jackie were riding in a motorcade through downtown dallas on november 22nd, 1963. thousands of people lined the streets watching and cheering. then a sniper fired three shots killing the president. >> from dallas texas, the flash apparently official. president kennedy died at 1:00 p.m. central standard time. 2:00 eastern standard time. some 38 minutes ago. >> the city of dallas will honor president kennedy this morning
7:04 am
at dealy plaza, the scene of the assassination. bells will ring just before 10:30 pacific time. the moment the shots were fired. followed by a moment of silence. >> there were ceremonies this morning at arlington national cemetery where an eternal flame marks kennedy's final resting place. jean kennedy smith, the president's last surviving sibling, laid a wreath at his gravesite. and in boston the john f. kennedy presidential library will hold a moment of silence at the hour when the president's death was announced. half a century ago. other tributes are being held around the world. just outside london this morning, jfk's granddaughter and other dignitaries planted an oak tree at the official british memorial to president kennedy. >> and we will remember john f. kennedy throughout the morning. chief washington correspondent bob schieffer is reporting from dallas. he was also there 50 years ago covering the assassination. >> that historic day was also a
7:05 am
milestone for television news. we will show you cbs news's live coverage of the story as it happened. >> and presidential historian douglas brinkley will be in studio 57, and he'll talk about the continuing public fascination with president kennedy, his family and his place in history. all of that is ahead right here on "cbs this morning." extreme weather turned deadly in california. two people were killed after strong winds hit oakland. one man was electrocuted by a power line. winter weather advisories are posted from the southwest to the plains. in san diego drivers had to be rescued as rain flooded streets. a helicopter crew saved at least five people from the santa ana river in colton near san bernardino. and it's not just california. in centerville, utah north of salt lake city, a dramatic show as high winds blew out power lines. gusts hit near 80 miles an hour. meteorologist megan glaros of our chicago station, wbbm, is tracking it all. >> good morning, charlie and
7:06 am
norah. talking about a storm system moving through the center part of the country that will bring rain and snow to cities like chicago. but in the center part of the country, oklahoma, texas, talking about freezing rain today. snow in the mountains of new mexico. and into colorado it's ice, though anywhere from st. louis down through el paso causing travel difficulties this morning. but as much as 6 to 12 inches of snow will fall from just south of denver to northern parts of new mexico. so snow will be the main issue for those folks through the weekend. weekend for much of the country will hold some very cold temperatures. cities like chicago will be 20 degrees below norm. charlie? norah norah? >> megan, thank you. and the filibuster has played a huge role in the history of the senate. this morning that power of open-ended debate has been dramatically cut back. >> senate democrats voted yesterday to change the rule that allowed republicans to block presidential appointments. senators will only be allowed to filibuster supreme court nominations.
7:07 am
nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you and to our viewers out west. the rule they changed has been around for 96 years. democrats argue republicans were abusing it so they had no choice, while republicans call this a power grab that robs the minority of one of its few true pieces of leverage. all but three democrats voted to clip the minority's power, lowering the hurdle for confirming presidential appointees from 60 votes to a simple majority of 51 votes. that means republicans can no longer block nominees if they don't like them or to extract unrelated confessions. >> what is going on is absolutely unfair and wrong, and i'm glad we changed it. >> reporter: half of all the filibusters against presidential nominations in u.s. history have involved mr. obama's nominees. 76 presidential nominees are awaiting confirmation for an average of 147 days.
7:08 am
republicans recently blocked three of the president's nominees to the powerful u.s. circuit court of appeals in d.c. but republicans say democrats are only taking this step now because they're trying to divert attention from obama care's problems. >> i'd say to my friends on the other side of the aisle, you'll regret this, and you may regret it a lot sooner than you think. >> reporter: that's the same argument then-senator barack obama made in 2005 when republicans were in charge and considering the same move. >> i think the loss will be enormous and one that all parties involved will come to regret. >> reporter: on thursday, he said times have changed. >> today's pattern of obstruction, it just isn't normal. it's not what our founders envisioned. >> reporter: republican senator john mccain led a bipartisan effort to head off the nuclear option in july. he was not successful this time. do you think the senate can ever go back? from this? >> i would be surprised because if we got the majority in 2015
7:09 am
i think there would be people who would be not want to reverse it. >> reporter: democrats say this move will ease gridlock because they'll be able to get these nominees through much more quickly, but republicans say it's only going to increase mistrust on all the other issues. either way no one's getting confirmed over the next two weeks, norah and charlie, because the senate has just gone on a long thanksgiving recess. >> nancy thank you. the dow opened about 40 minutes ago in record territory. for the first time the dow jones industrial average started the day above 16,000. it picked up 109 points thursday to close at 16,010. 2013 is a good year for investors. the dow has gained 22%. the nasdaq is up 31%. and the s&p 500 has added almost 26%. a notorious murder case in the 1970s is taking a new turn.
7:10 am
michael skakel is free on bail this morning after spending 11 years in prison. robert f. kennedy's nephew has insisted for decades that he did not kill a teenage neighbor. "48 hours" correspondent troy roberts has covered this case for years. troy, good morning. >> good morning, norah. it was a trial that made headlines. a kennedy cousin convicted of a brutal murder. then last month a connecticut judge threw out that conviction. yesterday he found out he could await his new trial from outside prison walls. >> reporter: this is michael skakel as a free man. for the first time in 11 years. on thursday a connecticut judge set skakel's bond at $1.2 million. as he exited the courtroom, he gestured to his family who burst into applause. skakel's attorney, hubert santos saw today's decision as righting at least one wrong from the past. >> there were two tragedies that
7:11 am
occurred in greenwich, connecticut, in 1975. the first was, of course the murder of martha moxley. the second great tragedy occurred in a courthouse in norwalk, connecticut, in 2002 when michael was convicted of the murder of martha moxley. >> reporter: in 2002 skakel was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison for the murder of martha moxley. in 1975 she was found beaten to death under a tree in her suburban connecticut backyard. skakel and moxley had been neighbors. both were 15 years old at the time. through the years, skakel now 53 years old, maintains his innocence. >> i did not commit this crime. >> reporter: as did his family. skakel is the nephew of ethel kennedy and the kennedys rallied to his defense. robert f. kennedy jr. is skakel's cousin. >> he's been in prison for a decade for a crime that he didn't commit.
7:12 am
>> reporter: last month a judge agreed with skakel that he did not receive an adequate defense from his trial lawyer mickey sherman. but outside the courthouse on thursday, dismay from the family of martha moxley. her mother dorothy, was a constant presence at skakel's hearings. >> i'm disappointed, but this is life. >> reporter: and martha's brother, john moxley says that won't change any time soon. >> we're not going away. we think the court got it right the first time, and we're not going away. >> as per the conditions of his bail skakel cannot leave the state without permission and must wear a tracking device. now he'll await news of his retrial. charlie? norah? >> thank you troy. more changes could be coming to your airline flight. next month the government will consider letting travelers talk on their cell phones while in the air. the use of mobile phones would be allowed once a plane reaches 10,000 feet but not during takeoff or landing.
7:13 am
cbs travel editor peter greenburg is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> tell us what this means. skbloo with >> the fcc will now consider this rule in fact change it as you said above 10,000 feet people can make calls if the airline wants to be part of this deal. if they do want to be a part of it they'd have to install a cell phone base station on the plane. right now technically you really can't get a signal from your own cell phone that will be effective below 10,000 feet or even above 10,000 feet. >> sounds like a good idea for customers. you know, you can make a call from a plane, but apparently the association of flight attends said passengers making phone calls could extend a mere nuisance creating negative effects on aviation safety and security that are great and far too risky. you think that's true? >> the technology's already there. it's been there for quite some time. we've had had air phones on planes before. it's a social issue. you have so much ambient noise inside that for you to actually have a reasonably decent
7:14 am
conversation with somebody, you almost have to yell. now, do you really want that happening with the person sitting next to you? do the flight attendants want in-flight flights? i don't think so. >> yeah, loud talkers. >> in terms of cost will it make any difference? >> remember, if you have to put that base station on the plane, the airline's going to want revenue. you have roaming charges on the ground. imagine what they could be in the air. now, some airlines have already said they're going to do it or at least consider it if the fcc does remove the rule. they said they'd entertain the idea. delta said absolutely not. feedback is so overwhelmingly. we're going to continue the policy of not allowing conversations on board. >> wi-fi. >> wi-fi is different. >> how long do you think it is before we could see this actually take effect on some airlines? >> well, remember, you still have to install those cell phone bay stations. that means they'll take each plane out of service to do it. you're talking maybe march, april, may of next year. >> thank you. and negotiations to curb iran's nuclear program continue this morning in geneva.
7:15 am
for a third day, top diplomats are hammering out the sticking points of an agreement, but there is pressure coming from the u.s. harry reid is preparing to move ahead for plans to impose new sanctions against iran. margaret brennan is at the state department this morning. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. and good morning to our viewers out west. well pressures on those negotiators in geneva to hammer out a deal by the weekend. in washington, the senate signaled it will give president obama one month before it rolls out new financial sanctions, and that, the administration warns, could destroy the chance of a diplomatic deal. iranian negotiators are looking for more financial relief from sanctions that the u.s. and world powers are offering. raising concerns about a potential deal. >> i'm not in a position to go into the details of that but we have some major differences still. and those differences are on
7:16 am
every side almost. >> reporter: iran agreed to the nuclear talks because its economy is in desperate shape. u.s.-led sanctions have cost it $120 billion in oil sales and slashed the value of its currency. the treasury department's david cohen helped enforce those sanctions. >> the whole idea behind the sanctions from the outset was to create leverage and move away from where it has been proceeding with its nuclear program. >> reporter: but first, iran and world powers will have to agree on how much money is on the table. the u.s. froze $100 billion worth of the regime's assets. the iranians want access to that money. for now, iran is being offered under $10 billion in sanctions relief if it signs a six-month deal to slow its nuclear program. >> the administration says less than $10 billion. why is it worth it? >> well the relief package, you're exactly right, is actually quite modest. it's limited, and it's reversible.
7:17 am
>> reporter: for skeptics like the israelis and many in congress, it is too soon to reduce pressure. but cohen says the u.s. will continue to track iran's money and enforce the most damaging sanctions. >> i am going to go around the world, and my partners will go around the world to be very clear that anybody who acts in a way that violates any of the remaining sanctions will be dealt with. >> reporter: the u.s. and iran have not yet had substantive one-on-one negotiations in this round of talks. the europeans have been very focused on the kind of access that iran will give to nuclear inspectors. now talks are expected to continue well into the weekend. it is time to show you some of the headlines. "the new york times" looks at photographers who cover president obama. they are complaining about being excluded from some events. yesterday the white house correspondent's association and 37 news organizations sent a letter to press secretary jay carney in protest.

i'm cate caugurian, live at west oakland b.a.r.t., train service is back up and running, it has been for 10 minutes now. b.a.r.t. says the problem originally was due to a computer glitch. they say their computers in central control were not communicating with the tracks which is setting back service for more than three hours and trust ratting thousands of commuters. we know it will be a rough morning. reporting live in oakland, cate caugurian kpix 5. with b.a.r.t. service resuming, expect extra long delays on the roads since there's a lot of confusion this morning and people hit the bay bridge specially. it is backed up sol ill east of the maze, the 24 approach is back up towards the caldecott tunnel heading towards the 580 interchange. it's a little sluggish on the

50 years ago this morning a big crowd turned out to welcome president john f. kennedy to fort worth, texas. the president and vice president lyndon johnson attended a brunch where jackie kennedy and her outfit stole the show. >> i introduced myself in president by saying i was the man who accompanied mrs. kennedy to paris. i get that same thing when i travel around texas. nobody wonders what lyndon and i wear. >> air force one then flew to dallas where another big crowd was waiting at love field. the kennedys climbed into the presidential limousine to begin the motorcade that would lead to a critical moment in history.
7:31 am
>> president kennedy's family friends and colleagues are recalling their happy memories. reunite reunite reunited, bob schieffer will join us as he describes a return to camelot. >> reporter: just days ago, nancy dutton who campaigned for kennedy, a unique gathering got under way. a reunion like no other for those who knew worked with even loved president kennedy. >> i'm the oldest of all the grandchildren. so i was lucky at least to see what a difference he was making in the country. >> reporter: kathleen kennedy, bobby's daughter. >> each night we would pray around the bed that jack would be the best president ever and my father would be the best attorney general ever. >> hardly a day goes by where i don't meet somebody who tells me that my uncle jack inspired
7:32 am
them. >> reporter: teddy jr., ted kennedy's son. >> looking at the people around this room they really believe that the government can do great things. and i think people really miss that now. >> well, i mean, i remember everything about him. all of them. >> reporter: for ben bradlee, the legendary editor of "the washington post," the day his good friend was assassinated is embedded in memory. >> my crowd remembers that day like part of the bible. >> reporter: time heals wounds. this gathering found the daughters of sworn enemies now at peace. lbj's daughter linda, and kathleen kennedy. >> the kennedys were wonderful friends of ours. and my parents loved president and mrs. kennedy. >> reporter: for these people on this special night, the moment remains real. the dark day in dallas their
7:33 am
world and ours changed with a gunshot. >> it's sad for me and it is really sad for the country. there was a lot of loss. >> bob schieffer is at dealey plaza in dallas. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. >> let's begin with your thoughts as you stand there in this place. >> reporter: well it always kind of takes your breath away when you come back here. i came down to dallas last week. and the first time i kind of approached the school book depository, which is just over my shoulder there, it's probably too dark to see it now, it just is hard to believe, you know that all of this happened in one day. i mean, you know it was this young, vibrant, active president. he got this unbelievably friendly welcome here and then just in a matter of seconds, it was all over. it's a day that changed america, charlie.
7:34 am
>> you know, bob, the "daily news" here in new york has reprinted the paper that they ran the day after his assassination. incredible to read all the stories. and one of the things that struck me inside the paper was about the kennedy children. you know not being told that their father had been assassinated waiting for until jackie kennedy could tell them. it is incredible how many remembrances this day, to go back and look at it. >> reporter: yeah. and you know it's the little things like that how do you tell the children at a time like this? and there are so many of those moments. and yet hanging over this norah, was this feeling of no one knew what this meant. we didn't know if it was the beginning of world war iii. they had closed off the borders with mexico. but, you know you saw this tragedy like we had never seen unfolding before us. television had never covered
7:35 am
something like that covered this that day, and then hanging over tragedy we were seeing before our eyes are we about to go to war? and that was what was so terrifying. it's a day unlike any day that i think anyone who was alive that day had ever experienced. and not until 9/11 did we -- any of us -- ever feel the same way. >> bob, you were reporting that day, and you're reporting this day. how is the legacy of the president changed in these 50 years since that terrible day? >> reporter: well, i think the legacy of john kennedy will always be that he inspired young people. he inspired intellectuals. he inspired people who had not shown much interest in government to come and do something in government. i mean people really took him at his word when he said "ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country." and it just brought a new sense of energy to the country.
7:36 am
and the creation of the peace corps came about. when you look at john kennedy's legislative record it was fairly thin. it would be left to lyndon johnson to pass the monumental civil rights bills for the great pieces of legislation of that era. but it was the inspiration that kennedy brought to the country, i think. and i think really as you look back on it, that will be his legacy. >> bob, thank you so much. on sunday bob schieffer's guest on "face the nation" include clint hill. he was the secret service agent seen frantically climbing onto the limousine after the shooting. that is sunday morning here on cbs. >> incredible to see that. where were you, charlie? >> i was -- i remember it well. i was in a car at duke university, and i pulled up to an intersection. and i heard it on the radio. and i just pulled over. it was a tough day for all of us. >> mm-hmm. >> especially because you
7:37 am
felt -- you felt the country had new promise. and you felt that there was a sense that we were young and vital. and i think -- i remember famously what pat moynihan said when mary mcgrory said we will never laugh again. and senator moynihan said we'll laugh again, but we'll never be young again. i think we can recapture youth, too, but it was a remarkable day and a remarkable time for america. >> it was. 50 years ago today. and we will have more here on "cbs this morning" as we continue. and the future of driving could be in your garage by this spring. >> reporter: hydrogen cars with zero emissions. we'll give you a first look at the vehicles that are starting a revolution in the auto industry. that next on "cbs this morning." but first, we look back at how quickly the news unfolded 50 years ago today.

7:44 am
promise of zero-emission hydrogen-fueled cars. this week at the los angeles auto show, automakers finally are keeping that promise. hyundai is the first major automaker to mass produce a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. the tucson suv will be available in showrooms this spring. >> with a hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle you're actually generating your own electricity with fuel cell stats that are fueled by hydrogen. and the only thing that comes out the tailpipe is water vapor. pretty cool. >> reporter: instead of gasoline, you pump hydrogen into the tank. but the process is almost identical. three to four minutes at a fueling station and you're good to go for 300 miles. hyundai is betting hydrogen is the solution to problems plaguing electric vehicles. >> how far people can go between recharged causes some anxiety. we picked a long time to refill batteries. there's really no way around

them. >> reporter: hyundai is not the only carmaker banking on hydrogen. honda took the wraps off its car here at the l.a. auto show. toyota unveiled its hydrogen-powered concept in tokyo this week. both will hit the market in 2015. >> innovation has reached a point that allows a more commercially viable fuel cell vehicle to be mass produced. >> reporter: but not everyone is buying the hydrogen hype. elon musk made a big bet on electric cars with his tesla. >> hydrogen. >> reporter: how do you convince people that this is safe? >> these tanks have metal that's about an inch thick, and they're wrapped with carbon fiber. they're essentially impenetrable. >> reporter: other concerns are more practical. >> there's no place to fill the cars. we only have a half dozen filling stations in california. so you get a car, even if it's a great price, you've still got to put the fuel in it. >> reporter: hydrogen boosters
7:46 am
point to california's recent decision to pay $100 million to build 100 fueling stations in the next five years as evidence the so-called hydrogen highway is being built, slowly but surely. >> let's do it. >> absolutely. >> reporter: when i took hyundai's new hydrogen-fueled tucson for a spin -- that has a beautiful sound. >> no sound at all. >> reporter: the sound of silence. it drove like any gas-powered car on the road today. this handles just like the car i drive. >> when we drive it and i have maybe friends or family join me they don't actually realize that they're driving the technology of the future. and that's kind of what we're aiming for. >> reporter: charlie norah, one of the best things about hydrogen, it's abundant. but with new drilling technology, oil is abundant again, and gasoline prices are actually dropping. so the question is will consumers have an economic incentive to embrace this new technology? >> bill, thank you. wow.
7:47 am
i mean that's just incredible. >> indeed. >> yeah. >> i would love to try it. >> yeah. >> i have a bias towards anything new. >> i know that. i know how many ipads and iphones you have. and a new car. we're starting out with very strong gusty winds around the bay area bringing down some power lines, some trees, some debris in the roadway. be careful outside. looking out over russian hill right now, mostly clear skies all the way to the golden gate bridge. aty cent day ahead. the winds will subside into the afternoon. very strong this morning. temperatures this afternoon under sunny skies in the 60s. a couple low 70s. looks like a nice weekend, less wind, could see some rain by the middle of next week. the anniversary of president kennedy's death is an emotional time even for many americans who were not alive 50 years ago. presidential historian douglas brinkley is in our toyota green room.

8:37 am
test of time which is also one of the things that makes them great. >> i love these guys. i mean they're the masters of their world. just think of the ipod and what marc has done and the friendship is also -- we're all friends, but those guys have been friends, and they met in tokyo. and their stories are interesting as their products. >> did you get gayle and i something for christmas there? >> i'm talking with them. >> you know what i think? that $500,000 camera wow. >> i'm thinking more like shoes. >> they can make simplicity look look. >> simplicity is the essence of what they do. >> bravo. >> look how simple. this one. >> yeah. charlotte, that's her name gave her to me. for four days grieving americans gathered in front of their tvs. we'll show you how cbs news we are looking at windy conditions around the bay area
