12:15 pm
>> we understand that. i think the iranians understand that. >> he insisted that the u.s. won't go for what he called a bad agreement just to have an agreement. there was plenty of scepticism about an agreement with iran and a lot of that was led by key democrats including his predecessor former defense secretary leon pannetta. >> there are a lot of concerns what is going to happen with the fuel that was developed. what is going to happen with this heavy water react tore and how is all of this going to be specified? >> the powerful chairman of the senate armed services says no. >> i love the slogan trust and

12:21 pm
the ground hitting an area called pecan which is south of illinois. these images of how ominous of the sky. and there were images of some of the damage on the ground in illinois. many houses being crushed by trees that have come down and we sauw debris from our structures as well. we'll keep a watch on the severe weather center. let's talk about politics and the rotead ahead. hillary clinton is staying in the public eye and making sure that people don't forget one of her key causes. >> here is elise, hey fred.
12:22 pm
hillary clinton is speaking out about women's empowerment. with three speeches in the past week. at the time she is coy about her political ambitions but she is able to reach a key voting block. >> hillary clinton has always had one campaign. >> we are going to be about the business of making sure that those ceilings crack for every women and girl around the globe. >> we have to stand firmly for women's rights. >> but hillary clinton and the sisterhood have a history. she came of age as the women's movement was gaining full steam. remember this from 1992, i supposed i could have stayed home and baked cookies and made tea bull i decided to go to
12:23 pm
work. >> but in the third year of his administration she stamped her name on a cause in beijing. >> women's rights are human rights once and more call. >> her push for girl power stirred a global movement. one of the reasons she failed to attract young women in large number. >> she did not emphasize that she was a woman running for president. >>. >> she shied away from that subject. there was polling data that she needed to emphasize her credentials and being tough. as secretary of state she could do both. while advancing women's rights and helping female entrepreneurs in india. >> i want to bring to public awareness what you are do iing.
12:24 pm
>> today the mission and the mantra remain the same. >> the great unfinished business of the 21st century is helping women and girls break through these ceilings. >> hillary, hillary. >> or using these time to build a base for 2016. a confident for 25 years sugg t suggests it works either way. >> it is how you get things done and beyond that. politics is a way to get things done, but it isn't to be divorced from what you are about. >> women are not a monolythic force. there remains plenty of opposition. some don't like her views on abortion and others say she
12:25 pm
doesn't like her vision of family values. >> clinton must prove that she is the woman to make that history. >> thank you so much. if hillary clinton runs again in 2016 will she or any other democrat be able to create some distance between the campaigns and the troubled obama care roll out? i'm joined now by hillary rosen and republican strategist rich gallen. >> i was geared up to call you rickey. >> hillary, you first. what do you think? how long will obama care haunt the democrats? >> that was quite a segue from hillary clinton's political future to obama care.
12:26 pm
i think that the issues are going to be long gone and by the time democrats are running for president. i think and i believe the opposite actually. it is going to end up being a fairly good signature program for democrats. after all when you look at polls for the last 20 years of people running for president, concerns about health care were always number one, two or three in terms of people's top concerns. the fact that president obama delivered that despite it's bumps, by the time we get to 2016, that is going to be an accomplishment. you agree just give it time? >> it might, it could well be. let's see if we are going to talk about polling, they asked
12:27 pm
in one question who do you trust more the president or the gop in congress on four issue areas and on health it was the president 42 and republicans 43 and economics 41 and 45 budget 40, 45. there is not an issue area that the president is trusted more than republicans in congress. that flies in the face of democrats that say this is going to be great you will see. sharp contrast where the president was able to gloat on how much americans trust in him and how little trust there was in the gop. >> hillary, it is a tough transition to make. but the whole point is democrats, there has been a defession in the past couple of days, 39 democrats who broke
12:28 pm
siding with the gop house plan and many have side that is to better position themselves for mid term elections. you buy that? >> well look, democrats that are up right now are concerned about things like primaries. i still believe that is plenty of time to recover here. we have over blown in the week the downfall of the presidency. we started this year with a
12:29 pm
budget problem that we couldn't get through. we are going to have another big budget battle in the next come of months. and i think that you know, by the time we get to 2014, we'll have more thing to talk about in an election than just obama care. >> just months away. >> but the president by st stretching this out keeps it on the front burner. no matter what the house and senate do. so i think it may well be there. >> how many people today have health insurance before. thank you so much. millions of people in dozens of states right now facing a severe weather threat. we'll continue to watch the system sweep ago cross one third

12:40 pm
turning up potentially dangerous weather. >> we have seen the weather extremes now over the last several months. so we cannot take anything for granted. we have to keep our guard up. what is the message that you are conveying to chicagoians? >> we run drills constantly, we put up messages on preparedness. we have a webpage that tells people how to prepare for emergency plans for contact information and communicating with each other and we have a supportive mayor who encourages us here with the fire and police here. we constantly run drills and coordinate at soldier field also. we try and be as prepared as we
