white house chief of staff under president george w. bush and fox news contributor. >> merry christmas. ed: what can you make as a political strategist? i know you don't support nancy pelosi, but as strategist what in the world is she trying to get done? >> as they said leverage. the problem she has no leverage. think about this the constitution says the house shall have the sole power to impeachment. the senate shall quote, have the sole power to try impeachment. so she has no constitutional role in the senate. she is trying to create one for herself. look, there is, as you know, from washington there, is always tension between the house and senate. nothing more than when each house tries to intrude on the prerogatives of the other. no more than when they try to intrude on constitutional prerogatives. i don't think she has leverage. the more this goes on, the more she plays fame, makes them look more partisan, petty and political. ed: she said it was not political. about the constitution,

prayerful, all the rest. this seems to play into politics of all of it. cory booker in the senate saying mitch mcconnell will not be an impartial juror. >> well, the constitution assumes that the senate is going to try this case but it doesn't assume they're all going to come in with no feelings whatsoever. mr. booker himself a little hypocritical he said months and months ago impeach president trump. ed: before the ukraine call. >> every democrat member of the senate already called for the president's impeachment. when will we hear booker denounce himself, denounce warren, denounce sanders, denounce kamala harris and denounce amy klobuchar biased not capable on the jury? the jury will have senate members with partisan backgrounds, partisan views, some open and public. the constitution assumes not that impartial jury of one's piers but senate of the united states.
9:06 am
ed: we teed up economic numbers. not just stock market. unemployment low. wages are coming up both parties want to see. think back to another strategists james carville on the other side from you, it's the economy stupid. how does the president pivot from impeachment? >> he has two big moments coming up. he has state of the union address. weeks leading up to it, the weeks leading out of it, while democrats are fighting it out during february and march for their nomination and the white house needs to understand, i think the president framed the message right last night the economy is doing well, run up to the state of the union, the state of the union, are opportunity to say i have a second act. yes the economy is good. that is not enough to get him reelected in most instepses. everybody wants a second act. the second act the prosperity we're enjoying we need to broaden it, deepen it, continue to grow it. here or two or three or four things. ed: talk about some of those democrats. elizabeth warren had a moment that expired in the debate by

going after buttigieg watch. >> the mayor just recently had a fund-raiser that was held in a wine cave full of crystals and served 900-dollar a bottle wine. billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next president of the united states. >> i am literally the only person on this stage who is not a mill favor or billionaire. so if -- [applause] this is important. this is the problem with issuing purity tests you cannot yourself pass. ed: in fact, she can't pass a purity test, ap, hardly partisan organization, comes out, associated press, she had a fun raiser at the winery before the campaign launched. maybe the wine wasn't expensive, maybe not -- >> turned out they didn't serve 900-dollar bottle wine ticks was $48. >> his strongest line was final line in this long litany i gave, could have come at her, wait a
9:08 am
minute, you transferred $10.4 million from your senate campaigns to help fund your presidential campaigns n two races for the united states senate you held plenty of fund-raisers at exclusive venues, private clubs, fancy hopes, god knows what, hosted by ceo, corporate ceos and titans on wall street and rich liberals and billionaires. don't be lecturing me about it. now you're also, pure, now that you're running for president. you had a much different attitude when you ran for senate. if you were honest, give back $10.4 million you transferred. ed: last thing, republican adam kinzinger had this on cnn about the president, state of politics. >> when you start to see people in the other party as the biggest enemy and not your actual enemies overseas, that is how democracies fail in the long term. so you have made this case for how the president has a strong economy, comes out of impeachment stronger. we shall see.
9:09 am
in order to get independent voters for president bush in '04 bus the president run risk of turning them off with some of the rhetoric? >> yes. i think, look in the final, five or six weeks of the 2016 campaign he used to get up there, you were at rallies, he joked, stay on script donald. he did. that caused, remember, 46% of the vote, 37% of the people who voted for him say i like him. i think he is qualified. i think he is experienced. he represents change i'm voting for him. 9% i don't think he is qualified, i don't think he has temperament but he has change on his side. i don't like her. they voted for him. he has got to keep that 9% grow it a little bit. you know, being president gives him a chance to do that. there has to be fewer moments, fewer tweets, fewer moments punching down. we don't think it is food to -- ed: he has the opportunity in the state of the union. >> he has, in the months to follow. ed: merry christmas.
9:10 am
get perspective from other side of the aisle, capri cafaro, democratic strategist, former ohio state senate. >> good to see you. ed: economy stupid, cnn poll, say 76% of americans in the cnn poll saying economy is good. how do democrats win this that environment? >> iting challenging anytime you're running sort of a against a strong economy, that usually does obviously help the person in the white house. we've seen that, for example, with bill clinton with the strongest, you know, peacetime economy in the 20th century. so what i would say is, that democrats, again they cannot just be against donald trump. they need to stand for something. and they need to bring those issues like they did in the midterm elections when it came to matters, for example, like health care. like education. like, immigration. so i think they need to make a forceful, compelling argument of
9:11 am
why democrats are going to bring, build upon, frankly, what the strength of the economy, grow that opportunity for a larger group of people, grow that middle class, and then appeal to some of those other issues like health care, education, immigration, and build that coalition. ed: capri, in fact joe biden, the front-runner in many of the polls, still had that opportunity in the last debate. we have got a sound bite there where he was pressed by the moderator judy woodruff about the economy. listen to this. okay. i guess we don't have it. >> or not. ed: don't have it teed up. he was struggling to explain what he would do differently. how do democrats make that pivot? >> as far as how they would do things differently? ed: when the economy is strong. >> when the economy is strong. again focusing how you grow that for the middle class. need, to number one acknowledge the fact it is strong. talk about, wage growth, talk
9:12 am
about, you know, retirement security issues, strengthening social security and social security trust fund. making sure again, if you are focusing on things like the stock market, yes, is that actually trickling down to the rest of the country. in communities like mine, north even ohio, we haven't necessarily seen that level of prosperity that many, places along the coast are seeing. so you need to talk about some of those forgotten areas that voted for donald trump because they expect ad change in the economy and they're not necessarily seeing that shared prosperity. ed: apparently we found the joe biden bite. listen to that and we'll talk. >> what is your argument to the voter watching this debate tonight who may not like everything president trump does but they really like this economy and they don't know why they should make a change. >> i don't think they don't like the economy. go back in middle class neighborhoods you grew up in. middle class is getting killed. middle class is getting crushed.
9:13 am
working class has no way up as consequence to that. ed: i get some people say, stock market is doing great, rich are getting richer, you know that we're also seeing numbers that suggest that paychecks are getting fatter, that wages are going up. something that both parties said they wanted to do. it is happening under president trump. so are folks like joe biden denying reality. >> again i think i would have taken a different tact. it is important again you have to acknowledge the reality of a strong economy but i think you need to focus again on matters like health care that are impacting, even if you are, you do have more money in your pocket, when you still have rising health care costs for example, the affordable care act is on the chopping block because of a lot of these court cases across the country, what is that going to mean to individuals? this is why "medicare for all," frankly is such a challenge i think for, why people are taking a second look at democrats. we don't really know how we feel
9:14 am
about "medicare for all." that would actually blow up medicare as we know it, that is working for people over 65. it hurts employer-based health care and hurts unions as well because their strength is actually negotiating stronger benefit packages. ed: you're right. >> they, we really need i think get back to reality and listen to the american people. acknowledge where there is strength but then again where there are weaknesses. ed: to the point on "medicare for all." here is bernie sanders in the last debate. what he had to say is pretty striking. >> i believe that everybody in america, including the undocumented, have a right to go to a doctor when they get sick. [cheering] and they have the right to leave a hospital without going bankrupt. [cheering] and that is why together, we will pass a "medicare for all" single-payer health care
9:15 am
program. ed: that was at campaign event before the debate. he said basically illegal immigrants will be covered under "medicare for all." how can you possibly sell that in a general election? >> it would be very difficult because undocumented immigrants right now are not covered for example under medicare or medicaid. we're not talking about green card folks. although the trump administration is talking about going after individuals that are legal immigrants with green cards i think is a bad idea but i think that, the american public does not want to see tax dollars spent on people that are not necessarily paying taxes into the system. undocumented immigrant, they are human beings, do get access to emergency room or free and chairable clinics. they are not without access to services. they can go. there is concern. a lot of times they do forego health care because they are concerned about revealing their immigration status. i think that bernie sanders is not going to be the nominee.
9:16 am
this is one of the reasons why. ed: we'll see. still up there in some of the polls. a long way to go to decide it. it is getting closer to iowa. capri, wish you merry christmas. >> same to you, ed. ed: boeing star liner capsule back on land after failed mission. landing in white sands, new mexico. dramatic pictures after going into a wrong orbit. christina coleman, in the newsroom, maybe a soft landing after rough couple days. good to see you. reporter: boeing's and that said they had a bullseye's landing. the star liner ended up in the wrong orbit after internal clock problem which caused the capsule to burn off too much fuel so it didn't make it to the international space station as planned. the good news the capsule had a successful touchdown. it marks the first time in u.s. history a human rated capsule
9:17 am
returned from orbit to make a ground landing. boeing and nasa officials say it was a good test. they will get a lot of information going forward. they didn't meet the objective docking at the international space station the flight was a success. >> today we had a lot of successes. i would say one of the biggest successes watching the nasa team and the boeing team and the ul a-team work together in a off-nominal situation to make good decisions that would be right for the astronauts and right for the country. reporter: the smooth takeoff from cape canaveral on monday -- >> rise of star liner, a new era in the rise of spaceflight. reporter: smooth takeoff from cape canaveral on friday was supposed to be the beginning after space trip that should have lasted more than a week. instead it ended today. they are trying to figure out what cause the internal clock
9:18 am
issue half hour into the flight. due to connectivity from the ground they were unable to by the time they reset the clock. the capsule burned so much fuel it wasn't enough to make it to the international space station. nasa officials say the star liner that landed today will be refurbished for the operational flight mission following the test. unclear when all of that takes place. ed. ed: christina, thank you. a lot of other news to get to. new developments in the jeffrey epstein case. the surveillance video outside his jail cell but seemed to disappear but now magically reappeared, raising a whole bunch of new questions as that mystery deepenses. yeah, and he wanted someone to help out with chores. so, we got jean-pierre. but one thing we could both agree on was getting geico to help with renters insurance. ♪

upon further review. upon further review is not always clear and conclusive. let it stand with what the umpire said in that instance. he will be relayed into his ear much like i'm hearing you now as what the machine says. 44% of the time is a lot. people lose their jobs because the umpires and officials in these games can't get it right. this will help them get it right. i don't know why there would be pushback. only pushback will come from umpires. that's sad. those people are wonderful people. and they have dedicated like i said, their lives to the game. but they're not being eliminated. they're being helped. ed: you lose something of the game. you're right, if you can improve it. it will actually impact it, get it right more often, seems like a step forward as you suggest. last question, i will put my bias on the table. i'm a yankees fan. you know that. we lost a couple big championship series to the astros. now there is cheating scandal going on, alleged cheating scandal. you see some of the star players

on the screen. major league baseball commissioner rob manfred says this is the biggest investigation about whether they were stealing signs. whether some batters knew a fastball or curve was coming. they have gone through tens of thousands of emails. where does it all end? for example, could the astros lose their world series title from 2017 if there is proof they cheated? >> i think it has to be proven. that is the first thing. there seems to be a lot of evidence indicating something has gone wrong here. i think the commissioner is on trial here. once the credibility and integrity of the game is questioned, if the fans don't believe everybody is playing with the same rule book and that everything is fair and square, then really all you have is determined out come by those cheating, advancing it. do we want professional wrestling with the determined outcome? the commissioner is on trial. he better get this right. he has been lax on this he let this go for way too long. there has been a lot of teams
