7:47 am
the ballot. this is good with california. and they are atrade of that argument. put in to some regulations. and even if it does pass the senate. and even if it earns the signature. it will likely be challenged in court. >> with 6 million people playing, i have a feeling it's got a pretty good backing. >> fantasy football is something i have been playing for a decade. there's a difference between that game and daily sports betting. >> that has yet to be determined. how did your team come out? >> my team came out on top. we were the champions of my fantasy football league. >> would you like to make a little money on the side? >> my friends, and cam newton was a fantastic quarterback. we're going to take a look at how he does right now. we want to take a look at the weather. a little bit of rain. most of the rain is south of the area that
7:48 am
centered. to take a closer look, you'll see this. we do have a couple of showers in the south bay. i believe they are being overpained just a little bit. the darker area is where we are actually seeing rainfall. notice a little dusting of snow on mount hamilton. as we take a look over san jose. we have these showers and that is ground is wet. temperatures outside in the host areawide. a little bit cooler than what we are seeing lately. grab the jacket. it's going to be chillier than what we are used to. our rain focus has shifted south right now. most of the rain, south bay, more los angeles. notice this popcorn like cloud structure. this has cold air. we do have a little moisture associated with this. it's going to move on and sink south as the trough does, as it moves inland. we do have a chance of some of that unstable air popping up some stray
7:49 am
storms today. a couple of stray showers in the north bay and east bay. ben, this morning, most of the rain south of our viewing area, and it moves on out of here, what's left by late moshing. now, into the afternoon, the second half of the day notice we start to see a couple of pop-up showers. we can't really predict where you are going to pop up but you should be prepared in the east bay or north bay for a stray storm or shower. most of us will stay dry, but the big weather story is going to be the wind. take a look at these wind speeds. i pause it later on this evening. we are topping out near 40-mile per hour gusts. sustained likely 20 to 30 miles per hour and gusting anywhere from 40 to 50 miles per hour possible. the highest winds along the coast. -- along the coast, coastal mountains and along the bay. gusts peaking this afternoon and into this evening although the wind advise are i in effect through 4:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. temperature-wise in the mid to upper 50s. the
7:50 am
heaviest rain stays well to our north and well to our south. superbowl city, if you are heading out there today, expect a blustery afternoon. grab that windbreaker or parka. you will likely see sunshine. probably not going to stay try, but it still may feel a bit cool because of the wind especially the second half of the afternoon and into the evening hours. the seven-day forecast shows a chance of thunderstorms for some folks today. isolated showers. we're not talking widespread rain. mostly sunny tomorrow. the next chance of showers is tuesday. right now about a 30% cab. looks dry and mostly sunny on wednesday. another slight chance of showers on thursday, and then look at this heading into the superbowl weekend sunny and mild. we couldn't ask for more than that. we'll be back after a break. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
7:51 am
7:52 am
7:53 am
have been hitting the pavemt all weekend. and it begs the question... do voters ce more about personality or platform. i sat down with former san francisco mayor willie browd political expert melissa ceo discuss it. the and -- do voters care more about platform or policy. is it what you say or how you are saying it? that is what it boils down to. we sat down with the former mayor. and melissa cane to say okay, what is it people are really listening to? >> how much of this presidential season is personalty-driven verses party plattforms? >> party plattform? what is that? party plattform is something put together by a committee of people who are retired or otherwise have a lot of free time to sit around and debate such things. this is all about personalty.
7:54 am
every effort, effort debate. the fact-checking comes in, and nobody cares. it's all about the beer acception -- perception of who is strong, who sounds like i want them to sound. >> but in the past, the question of whether or not a particular political party had put together a program on which candidates would run, certainly in the primary that does occur, but as we move towards the general election in the conventions that we hold, we do go party plattforms. and you are expected as the -- as the candidate to debate -- to defend or adhere to the party plattform. >> but nobody really ever does. it is about personalities, so which leads me to our next question. if we have these splits going on within the democratic party and the republican party, is there even anybodying there to broker some kind of plattform and a deal at a candidate. >> well, i think to some degree, it's not. the plattforms really aren't that important. the last time around e we had either side, the democrats taking aim at what is in the
7:55 am
republican plattform and the republicans doing the same and both sides say iing hey, it's not that important. it's a piece of paper. we still govern by our own principals. >> but on key issues like abortion, same sex marriage, taxes, all of those things become part of the planks in the so- called plattform. and every candidate will have to address those issues because they will be constantly peppered by news people with questions about where they stand. >> so if hillary clinton winds up with a plattform that is dictated or largely incorporates the bernie sanders model and ideas, what does she do? >> she is going to defend only that component of it that she is comfortable with. the rest she's going to act like it doesn't exist. >> candidates can ignore any parts that they want. let's say the republican side, you have a libber tar yan group that wants to put in some sort of noninterventionist
7:56 am
element. they just drop the subject all together. you just say you know what? we're going to stop the list at number eight. >> and i think ultimately it is trust. >> yes, it's humongous. >> it is interesting to see in the primaries that you see is them addressing these issues. very fervently, and then we'll see what happens as they move down and as they emerge is winner. no, it's about me winning more and more and less andless possibly flipflopping. >> it's called ma suring -- maturing, and adjusting. ,,

homeless during super bowl .
8:11 am
8:12 am
police have been trying to them out from the area arou a lot for the homeless during superbowl week. police are trying to move them out of the area of superbowl city to say the temporary housing facility. some say that facility looks more like a prison than housing. >> and joining us this morning is supervisor scott weiner. scott, this is a problem that predates the superbowl, and it's going to be after the superbowl. we're not just talking about superbowl city. you know there are parts of san francisco. people literally livering on tents. what is your favor? >> well, it comes to some of the tents and encampments we're seeing, this is not about the superbowl. there's been a lot of talk about the superbowl. this prickiested -- preexisted the superbowl. this is going to be here. this is about our neighborhood and the fact that we have a growing number of tent encampments in san francisco and it's not safe. thes not healthy. for the occupants or for the neighborhoods and we need to move people out of the tent
8:13 am
into shelter. into housing. >> we have heard mayor after mayor and supervisor after supervisor say the same thing you just cede. and we set up programs for people. they either opt in or decide not to and they say well y you can't keep sleeping on the streets with these tents set up and they still do. >> well, i think the situation we're seeing now is very different. i lived in san francisco almost 20 years. i have never seen this many tents and other people who have been here a long time. and so the question is what is the limit? my concern is that we're going to get so used to these tents that inertia will set in and we will defacto have a tents as housing policy. tent is not hughesing. it's not safe or healthy for the people in them. or the surrounding neighborhoods. we need to have more shelter and housing and whether there is
8:14 am
available sheller and housing. people need to move out. >> you and i have seen down at city hall and across there for years. the catch # 2 is there has never going to be enough. there are always going to be nor. we still need more. we still need more. even when they have the shelter available, there is not the -- you don't want to criminalize. nobody wants to criminalize the homeless or you don't send the police, who are you going to send in? what are you going to do? >> it's not about criminalizing or putting people in jail. it's about saying to people, if there is housing available. or else. >> exactly. >> if you are sitting there, and by the way, some of these tents are a couple hundred bucks and people are buying them for them and dropping them off. they set up that tent and say go into sheller and they say no, what are you going to do? >> and if there is a shelter available for someone, and they are in their tent, so you think we should be seizing the tents. >> the sents can't stay there if there is shelter available for people. it's illegal to put a tent up and block
8:15 am
public sidewalks. people need to move in the shelter. we need more shelter absolutely. we need more housing, but as we do that, we need to make sure people are transitioning. >> you are saying we need to take the tents. >> if they are shelter available and people won't go, yeah. >> that will be interesting. you know the minute the police and department of public works start grabbing those, it would be an upruer. demonstrators would be all over the chamber. >> we as a city are very compassionate. we want people to be safe and to have housing for the people who want to live in an unsafe and unhealthy circumstances, they can have their want people to transition into tent and housing. and there are a lot of support of that. >> and one for the tent is the
