getting you where you need to go and watching the bay bridge toll plaza. >> that's right. i won't say anything controversial about it. [ laughter ] >> let's check your roads right now at 7:08. starting at the toll plaza, you can see the traffic is backed up to a ten-minute delay. maybe a little bit more but not more than 12 to 13 minutes but
i think i might be being too conservative. once you get to the bridge, you will wait a little bit and then you go off to san francisco. northbound 101 is looking good on the left. it's crowded and still looking good. 280 looks good down to the ballpark area. in the south bay, northbound and southbound 101, the slow drive is on coming in from southern san jose and getting
up into sunnyvale. here's steve. here we go. a lot of clouds. there are breaks in the clouds and the rain line has moved north, mainly up to mendocino and lake county. a lot of high clouds over us. but more high clouds but kind of partly to mostly cloudy. there's been good rainfall up
towards men -- mendocino. the strongest part of the jet stream is on the back of a low that will drive it south and takes crowds and aligns this parallel to the coast. there's still a lot of clouds coming up from the south. you can see a lot of these are skirt everything the area -- skirting the area. cloudy, rain, north, muggy, warm to the south. we'll have a lot of upper 60s, low to mid-70s, 74 in san jose. they are 59 right now. it wouldn't take much under partly to mostly cloudy skies. temperatures bumps them you. keeps on moving. 65 in san francisco. walnut creek jumping up to 72. oakland, 67 to 70. the mere fact that they are 59 right now. all they need is a wind,

night, clearing out sunday morning. monday and tuesday, looking warmer. tori? dave? >> thank you, steve. president obama on "comedy central." >> we've done some things that folks don't even know about. >> are you planning a surprise party for us? [ laughter ] >> it wasn't all fun and games on "the daily show" and why some say the president should not have done this interview. also why governor schwarzenegger is calling congress wimps and his wife is hinting what kind of work she would like to do when she is no longer came's first lady.
welcome back. it's 7:1. france may withdraw some troops from afghanistan. the country's minister says troops will begin to transfer the control to certain districts in afghanistan. they have 1300 troops in afghanistan. the defense minister says the move is not tied to a recent threat issued to country by osama bin laden. in a message, bin laden threatens to kill french citizens because of their country's support for the war in afghanistan and for the law regarding women wearing veils. the man accused of plotting to blow up washington, d.c. metro stations goes back to court tomorrow for a detention hearing. alison burns is live in our washington, d.c. newsroom and

something like that. >> reporter: federal agents have been searching the man's townhouse for more evidence. he lived there with his wife and young soon. as we've heard before in similar cases, neighbors say they are shocked by his arrest. reporting live from washington, d.c., alison burns, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, alison. here in the bay area, the port of oakland is marking a milestone in its new security program for trucks serving the port. the port says 5,000 drugs are now registered in its secure truck enrollment program. this program requires truck drivers to go through a registration process in order to be allowed access to the port. 7:17. president obama made an appearance on "the daily show" with jon stewart in an attempt to reach out to young voters. it's the first time a sitting president has been a guest on the show. although stewart cracked plenty of jokes, the president was all business in his responses.
>> you ran a very high rhetoric, hope-and-change and the democrats seem to be running on, please, baby, one more chance. [ laughter ] >> when i won and we started the transition and we looked at what was happening in the economy, a whole bunch of my political folks came up and said, you know what? enjoy this now because two years from now, folks are gonna be frustrated, and that is, in fact, what's happening. >> some critics say president obama's appearances on shows like this one and his other recent appearance on "the view" diminish the office of the president. "the new york times" poll shows 46% of likely voters say they would vote for republicans in the upcoming election and 40% say they would support
democrats. that's even though 46% saying they had a favorable opinion of democrats. with just a couple of months left on his term, it appears that governor schwarzenegger is getting sour on politics. recently, in an interview, he called members of congress wimps with no gut, intimidated by oil companies. he says he plans to to continue to work on environmental reform. but there are some signs the governor may be getting back to the movies. in a tweet cast last week, the governor said he worked with the director of terminator and "eve have tar" and he will make a -- "avatar" and he make an appearance soon. meanwhile, on "the today show" matt laur asked maria shriver how she plans to spend her free time and she says she hopes to spend it with him,

gonna keep the rangers up all night. that had had texas fans calling lefty's saying they wanted to order texas toast. the phone is ringing a little bit this morning, but just not as much. >> we're getting some calls. people are still saying, go, texas! we love ngers! and they are still asking for texas toast. we're definitely responding, you got served. you got toasted last night. [ laughter ] >> reporter: i did talk to security over at the westin. they say everybody has been good natured. some people yelled as the rangers came in. people know they have to be good hosts. despite rooting for the giants, they know after today, the giants are heading to texas. they will just hope that texas
