>> then as farr as hangovers go, probably some people out there are dealing with one right now. >> i'm not mentioning with names. >> however, we have all the tricks, the fixes and fact and fiction. but, of course, there are some of these old wives' tales about how you fix it. we've got the truth about fixing it, especially dealing with it right now stay tuned. >> definitely stay tuned, believe us. that's all ahead but first headlines this morning, for that we turn to betty nguyen. >> good morning. happy new year, everyone. about a million revelers filled times square in new york for the nation's biggest new year's eve party. security was tight even though police said there was no specific threat of terror. in georgia, the peach state, 2011 was welcomed with the annual peach drop from a 138-foot tower in atlanta. and in seattle, the new year was greeted with a dazzling fireworks display at the city's iconic space needle.
tornadoes roared across the south and midwest on new year's eve, killing at least six people. injuring dozens of others and leaving a trail of destruction. one of the twisters hit the northwest arkansas hamlet of cincinnati killing three people. 24 homes were destroyed, as was cincinnati's fire department headquarters, with most roads leading into town closed because of debris. three more people died in missouri. krv bs news correspondent cynthia bowers joins us from st. louis sglas the fast-moving systems rained down tornadoes causing massive damage across the southeastern part of missouri including metro st. louis. in the sunset hills suburb a tornado tore through at lunchtime taking out about 20 homes and businesses. >> it's incredible. absolutely inyesterday dibble. cars overturned, trucks overturned. it's kind of hard to believe such a thing could happen to our city. >> reporter: 20 people dove for cover inside a neighborhood pub,
fortunately, there were only minor injuries. these were the worst new year's eve tornadoes here in more than 50 years, adding to the danger was the fact rare winter tornadoes sliced through colder air more quickly leaving little time for warning. people in the sunset hills community are waking up this morning feeling grateful. betty? a stand-offer ended peacefully with the release of hostages and arrest of two gunmen. dozens of police officers surrounded the bank building. five hostages and a gunman came out first. later the second gunman and remaining hostages emerged. police also brought out three other people who hid inside a closet. that's the news at this hour. checking today's weather, blizzard conditions in the northern plains while severe thunderstorms continue to be a threat in pokerss of the midwest and south. tornadoes watches till in effect in some areas. but here's a closer look at the weather in your area.
that's your weather this new year's day. now back to rebecca and russ. >> from the courage and spisht of the chilean miners to heart-breaking devastation in haiti. 2010 was a year of triumph and tragedy. >> the greatest oil spill in american history now covers 29,000 square miles. >> crude oil at the rate of 8,000 barrels a day. >> 12 to 19,000 -- >> 800,000 gallons or more a day. >> the entire ecosystem is gone. >> it was a magnitude 7, possibly the strongest quake ever to hit that region.
>> it's incredible amount of devastation and incredible amount of people that will probably lose their lives here. >> bodies are strewn everywhere. families still in shock asked us over and over, where is the help? >> we need to secure our border. >> does it matter whether you're a citizen or not, you're being criminalalized based on the color of your skin! >> i don't want them to build this mosque over here. i don't care where they build it. i just don't want them to build it here. >> the president's signature domestic issue becomes the law of the lan. >> insurance companies will no longer be able to drop people's coverage when they get sick. >> i'm not a witch. >> we've come to take our government back! >> a power shift in washington, as republicans take the house. oop. >> i'm not recommending for
every future president that they take a shellacking like i did last night. impl the first miner has just made it to the surface. >> one by one, husbands, brothers, fathers and sons emerged to joyous reunions that defied all odds. >> moments after the game ended pandemonium paraded through the french quarter. the saints and their city had earned this moment. >> now, we got a super bowl! >> and here with a closer look at some of the year's most memorable moments, "people"'s suzanne zuckerman. happy new year. >> and to you. >> thank you so much. great to have you here.
>> thank you. >> watching that piece it is very emotional to look back on a full year and those details. >> absolutely. what a year it was both for news and celebrity news and pop culture and just global news. it really was riveting to watch. >> "people" magazine has a double issue for the year end. you are looking at some of the most inspiring, uplifting, sensational moments of the last year. one of those moments is the chilean miners. >> oh, my gosh. what a story that was. you know, 69 days, miles underground these men just surviving by just sheer force of will and of course the wonderful footnote edison pen ya completing the new york marathon with ice bandaged around his knees, the heart it took to get through it demonstrated what he must have gone through underground, that resolve saw him through both of those ordeals. >> i have to say just when he was here in new york, there was sort of a rhythm in the city, a happiness and excitement over the fact he was here, he had come to new york after being
through such a momentous occasion in his individual life and you what was running in the marathon here. on a very, very different note, you have the julian assange wikileaks story that has really touched off headlines for the last couple of months of 2010 and looks like it is going to continue to be a big story of 2011. >> absolutely. as assange has said, there's more coming. this man is a polarizing figure. whether you believe he's a journalist, possibly a terrorist, he's dividing people's opinions but one thing for sure he's capturing headlines and we don't anticipate that stopping anytime soon. >> speaking of someone who's captureed a lot of headlines, and polarized, as well, sarah palin. >> yes. >> she's been on the campaign trail in 2010, in addition to that she's had her own reality tv series. >> politico, best selling author, reality star, what can't sarah palin accomplish? she actually sat down and told "people" the reason she wanted to star in "sarah palin's
alaska" because she was inspired as a child watching shows, documentaries about the great outdoors and wanted to celebrate her great state and bring that experience to viewers. that's wonderful. then, at the same time, we see her starring, co-starring in a way on tlc with "people" magine's one of our favorite cover stars kate gosselin. it is so interesting to see a political figure and reality star sort of come together in one, in one figure that we're all fascinating with, which is sarah palin, definitely one of "people's" most intriguing this year. >> also a very intriguing person, sandra bullock. >> yes. >> won the oscar, academy award but also went through significant hardship a very public divorce and on top of that adopted a brand new baby. >> such a year of dramatic highs and lows for sandra bullock. she, of course, began 2010, winning the oscar if "the blind side" and was blind-sided herself with the news of jesse james's infidelity. meanwhile all the while she had this brand new beautiful adopted
baby boy at home. while the year began with lots of drama for sandra, it ended with quiet solitude, home with louie, being a mom focusing on her life as a single mom. >> that's really significant because the role louie has played in sandra's life and will continue to play seems to be very significant. >> as her co-star in "the proposal" betty white said, louie has filled up sandra's whole soul. there is a new side to her and we can't wait to see her until 2011. >> i want to get to the late-night wars. everywhere in the press people were talking about the late-night wars and seems the comeback kid is the real star. >> conan o'brien is certainly is the comeback kid, that's what we dubbed him in our year-end double issue. what's interesting about the way he weathered this controversy during the late-night wars, he always got through it with human, that team coco banner that hung from the building when all of the drama was going on through the present day with his
brand new tbs show he's kept it funny the entire time and that's been what's seen him through and made him have continued success. >> couple other really interesting characters, mark zuckerberg has been a big one in the public yip the last year from "the social network" depicting the founding of facebook to his $100 million donation in newark, new jersey, the public schools there. >> right. mark himself called "the social network" a work of fiction. whether you believe he's a scheming jerk or a genius, again another polarizing figure for 2010 but he's a philanthropist and at 26 years old one of the youngest billionaires we know and actually plans, he says, to donate half of his vast fortune to charity. >> which is very honorable of him to do. in terms of some of the really exciting things that have happened recently, the big engagement of kate and wills, incredible. >> we can't get enough of this story. obviously with the wedding being april 29th, it is not going
anywhere, only going to continue to be a huge story in 2011. >> and i have a feeling people will continue to follow it. >> yes, we will. you can bet on that. >> as we will, too. thank you so much. happy new year. >> happy new year. >> thanks for being with us. >> thank you. >> back over to you, russ. >> rebecca, thank you very much. the holidays may be just about over but does not mean the sales are done. in fact, january can be one of the best months to buy certain items at discounted prices. here to tell us what's on sale beginning right now is aol consumer advicer regina lewis. happy new year you to. >> thank you. you, too >> winter coats, good deals. >> seems a no-brainer but especially true this year, coming off the warmest october in 20 years. they made up for some sales in december but there's still a lot out there we see 50% off in most parts of the country, still have three months of cold weather. i do not know about your house but somebody will luls the other glove at any moment now. it's good to scoop those up. >> we always heard about january white sales, linen sales.
why january? >> dates back to 1878, john wannamaker invented it put all the linens on sale, of course they were all white. macy sent these over and we spoke with sears, talking about 70% off. >> wow, goodness. >> it is a legitimate fe no na. >> 70% off. >> 70% off. >> talk about electronics, digital cameras it is interesting january would be the for sales on those. >> i tell you what. the consumer electronics show is january 6th to # 1th in las vegas, i'm headed out there when they unveil all the latest and greatest gadgets. what that does is brings down the price of the last greatest model. they tend to go down about 30%. january is actually a very good time to buy electronics. >> we talk about plasma v tvs and l.e.d. tvs being on sale s. it a good time to buy? >> it is except for the super
bowl because they go back up and guys like you need to have them. >> we are simple to figure out, of course. toys on sale in january. >> sure. seems like a no-brainer but especially true this year. toys came in and started at a lower price point. amazon sent these over. i have tupperware bins in my basement. i load up on toys right about now and then i save a fortune when the kids go to birthday parties throughout the year a. great trick. >> a great idea, very, very good idea. talk about some of this stuff. this is obvious but people think in january, you know what, i've seen all this christmas stuff out. it's on sale. christmas is so far away, i should shouldn't bother with that now. you say get the stuff now. >> they are giving it away now. but then you'll go to the store and it's going to be gone. this is really the week to get this stuff things like christmas lights and christmas cards. the other trend is it's great this year because they weren't so color specific. everything wasn't red and green, you've got blues, shades of green, silver was in as we've seen on the set here all month
long, brown. we'll need to wrap rebecca's wedding gift, rye. >> of course. >> we'll need to wrap birthday gifts. baby gifts throughout the year. pick the colors relatively neutral and don't just think holidays but i'll milk this stuff all year long. >> another one that got me, gift cards, deals in january on them. what's that about? >> because there is a re-sale market. people got them for christmas. some got gift cards to places they don't like to shop and wanted cash so they went to a site like plastic jungle and sold them, which means you can buy them now. there's a great selection like buying discounted cash. i can buy a $100 gift card for 90 bucks. the really bargain bees load up on these to buy something like a washer and dryer they will buy five $100 gift cards at five dollars off. if you know you will shop at that store, discounted cash. >> you talked about a historic cal reference, some are no-brainers, any other reasons
in particular january being this time of year to get good stuff. >> it kims down to timing. the other we don't have is carpeting. people entertain for the holidays and in a rush to get their carpets done. come january the carpet guy is sitting there, nobody is calling them. >> like the lawn guy. >> yeah. so, timing is everything but january is a good month to buy these items and to stockpile. >> okay. regina lewis, as always, thanks. >> of course. >> happy new year. >> thank you, too. >> happy shopping. you can log on to our website for more on super january sales. rebecc rebecca? >> now is the perfect time for get a fresh start on your finances for the new year. a survey found 65% of americans were resolved to save more money in 2011. and if you are one of those personal finance expert farnoosh ter rabe joins us with tips to organize a budget and keep you
on track for spending goals also the author of "psych yourself rich." great to have you with us. happy new year. >> happy new year. >> very important. everybody thinks about it. >> what is interesting about the is survey while we have our mind on the money we also want to get back to business in terms of our health, in terms of spending time with family and sort of getting back to the old emotions. but, money is still really important and so we've got some tips how to keep you on track. >> yes, they all kind of work together, all this stuff works together, if you are financially more on track your health can be better and a lot of things work out better. in terms of how you actually approach this and start your budgeting, what's the first thing you recommend? >> the first one is to have a money buddy, okay, someone who as you would have an exercise buddy, right? that's going to keep you on track financially. you are going to share your goals with this person. you're going to, you know, maybe shop together but this is being a frugal flend keeping you on track and in line with your goals, your mom, a best friend,
a spouse. second have a money zone. what is this? it's a place in your home you can go to and it has all of your financial to-dos but also you can visualize your goals, as well. without goals, money is very intangible. have pictures of the vacations you want to take or have inspirational quotes but also have your file folders and your receipt boxes and it doesn't have to be a big space. it can just be a place at the end of the kitchen table or a table in the sunroom or in the garage but it's your zone and it kind of is away from all the other clutter in the house. >> everyone is dying where we would find that zone in your home. >> i live in a very small new york one-bedroom apartment. it's actually in my bedroom. i have a little nook at the end of my chest of draws and a little desk with my laptop and it's where a lot of my file folders go with the receipt boxes and all that stuff that will come in handy come tax time. >> when it comes to paying your bills and keeping track of all that, that obviously goes hand
in hand with having the budget, working with your money buddy. how do you think about that? >> automation is absolutely key. so, if your goal this year is to save the best way to do it, do it automatically so it's painless. behavior yorl experts have done studies where with cash and automatically. thee either pay out of pocket or electronically. those who patron nickly have more financial security, they're more happy, they sleep better at night. if you are worried about, you know, just having a better mindset this year, pay automatically and then the other thing is to pay with cash, okay. >> when you are actually out shopping. >> when you are actually out shopping. surveys show recently when we use cash we actually save 12 to 18% of our dollars. get this, mcdonald's did a survey of their customers, the customers who use credit cards versus cash spent seven dollars versus $4.50 on average. so, 50% more using credit cards more likely to get the smoothie or the extra large coke.
>> when you look at the dollar bill you realize if this is the last thing in my wallet and i'm handing it over i'm done. >> when it's gone, it's gone. when it's painful. that's key. credit cards a painless. you spend and feel you can afford something when technically you may not be able to. >> in terms of setting that budget and sticking to it, are there any words of wisdom, the words that farnoosh says we should live by? >> everyone should have a rule of thumb or several rules of thumb when it comes to money. we do this when we diet saying we are not going to eat past 8:00 or no des setters this week, only the weekend. with money i think a similar tactic can work. whether i'm going to talk to my partner if i'm going to spend more than $100 on a household item or it's i'm going to pay myself first at the beginning of the month before i spend anything that i want. so, that you have these rules of thumb, these benchmarks because when you make decisions, financial decisions especially, it can get very hairy, very tough. but when you give yourself these benchmarks these sort of rules of thumb to fall back on --
>> resolutions? >> -- resolutions, test thatments, whatever you call them, i think it can help you stay on track and avoid temptation. >> farnoosh, thank you, as always. >> you're welcome. >> have a gray 201 #. >> you, too. >> for more, visit our sister website: russ? >> thank you. a little more than seven hours into the new year. how many resolutions have you broken already? coming up, we'll show you how to keep your toughest new year's resolutions. later, if your head feels like a football, stay tuned for the secret to easing that holiday hangover. honest, folks, this is a cold, not a hangover. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. ,,,,

we talked about resolutions early. >> a lot of people think about that this time of year, right. >> of course. i know gyms, health clubs are packed the first three months of the year. >> so true. >> then you can go any time after. >> that you always see the commercials. i've been seeing them everywhere lately. the commercials for, you know, come in, make sure you live up to your goals, meet those goals. do you have any resolutions, russ? >> i don't. i'm one of those people who

why are you bother meg with this. staying healthier, one i think, i mean probably 95% of the -- if you are to take a poll of resolutions out there, that's probably 90% of everyone's dance card. >> yes, exactly. everyone is thinking i'm going to eat more vegetables, be a little more active, get more sleep. do you think about getting more sleep ever russ? >> i think about it a lot but doesn't quite happen. maybe that will be a resolution this year, as well. >> i definitely can appreciate, though, getting back to people's e-mails returning their phone calls. it's nice when you have a platform like this to let people know that's what you are hoping to do. >> i'm thinking about you, even if i don't return your phone calls and e-mails, you know, you're right here, you really are, it's okay. >> i couldn't have said it better myself. i feel the exact same way. >> sounds fantastic. again, happy new year, everybody. hope you are having a wonderful day. coming up, talking more about hangovers and stuff like that. >> and also keeping those resolutions. >> that's right. >> and predictions for the coming year. >> there you go. >> you're watching "the early

we all know you eat less and exercise more. we all know houf. what is it? maybe the cause of the eating we might need to look at that. if we are not eating because we are hungry, we need to look at that. but the important thing to look is accountability. we need accountability whether you join a national program to lose weight or do it with a friend, be accountable to yourself that helps you see it and also don't give up. i just lost 10 pounds getting ready for the new year. >> congratulations. >> if i had a bad day instead of saying forget it eat what you want, stick with it, stick with it, get back on track. so accountability and consistency. >> almost like you are telling me a mantra to keep in mind to stay on track. >> you have to be very conscious. that's the hard part. we get back to our real life and lose track of things. >> people are oftentimes this time of year are thinking about a new job, a better job. what do you think is wrong about that resolution? >> well, better is not specific. so, any resolution needs to be specific. what's better, more money, more
accountability -- more authority, more creativity, what's better? nine out of ten times my clients don't need to change jobs. they need to get specific about what needs to change, might be a smaller thing and do research, do you need to get a mentor, a coach? get out there and do industry research on what salary you can demand and even in tough times, you can ask for more. >> so, research, ask for more and define what you want. >> yes, that's the key. define it. >> a lot of people this time of year are also thinking in the new year i'm going to get a boyfriend, i'm going to get a girlfriend, i'll get married, you know, i'm going to force somebody to get married to me, maybe. what's wrong with that in your view. >> it's tough about the relationship piece so much is out of our control. you know, you can't control, make somebody to marry you. >> it takes two to tango. >> it does. it's important in this case if that's your resolution to stay very open minded, don't make each date mr. wrong or miss right and go home exhausted and
depressed. be curious about people, stay positive, you'll be much more attractive. and don't let it take over your life. how much time are you getting to given to this dating phenomenon in yir life? an hour a night online is probably enough. it can't take over your life. >> it can become on obsession. we have very bad habits some of us do and look at the new year as a chance to shed that, quit that habit but so few actually stick to us. why is that? >> we like the new year, another clean slate time but i want people to know you can do that every day. in my book "the prosperity plan" i talk about a bad spending habit. that's a big one. >> smoking. >> it's an addiction inch it's an addiction. that's what i want say most importantly if it is more than you can handle and can't quit, please get help. that is nothing to be ashamed of. if you are going to tackle it yourself you can start over every minute, not just every day, every minute. don't need a new year. you have to start over to stay with something like that and also you need to forgive yourself and reward yourself.
but if you have a spending habit don't reward yourself by buying something, please. >> find another habit. >> another bad habit. >> i'm only joking there, obviously. but it sounds a lot like there's something that has to come from inside, too. you have to kind of constantly remind yourself about these things and remind yourself of ultimately what the goal is versus what you're trying to do and try and determine is the short-term satisfaction going outweigh the long-term goal. >> it is a constant conversation with yourself, it really is. that's why it's important to have others in your life who can support you and remind you if you are not telling yourself the right thing. we talked about the difference between the people who stick to them and don't, it is discipline, that inner commitment to yourself. start off that year loving what you want to accomplish and loving you and take it slow and small. >> take it slow and small. that's a good piece of advice. don't try and overthink or get too grandiose with what you want to accomplish. >> a lot of people this time of year will set the big one, i'm going to run a marathon, write a
novel. take bite-sized pieces. no one runs 26 miles they go to the gym and get muscles and start running, right? >> such a good points. >> little pieces i can leave people with one thought one thought a day can get you to your dream, one action a day. >> i love to end it there. laura, thank you so much. happy new year you to. >> my pleasure. >> russ? >> thank you. up next, fact or fiction. do bloody marys actually cure a hangover. matt bean is here to tell us what works and what doesn't. it's coming right up. this is "the early show" on cbs. and blur my vision. my eye doctor said there's great news for people with astigmatism. acuvue® oasys for astigmatism. he said it's the only lens of its kind designed to realign naturally with every blink and created with hydraclear® plus. i'm seeing more clearly, crisply, comfortably, all day long. now life doesn't have to be a blur.

>> rebecca tells me you can get really dry if you are drinking if you drink a lot. at what point do you start drinking water? >> even before you start drinking alcohol. >> is that right? >> it is a pro move. you want as much water in you as possible because alcohol actually interferes with your body's ability to retain water and inhibits a hormone, an anti-dur retick. forget the technical stuff. drink one water for each drink. tell the bar tendr bring me water and keep it coming. >> you start before you start drinking the other stuff. >> absolutely. >> one myth is drink coffee and your hangover is gone in a heartbeat. what's the truth? >> it can actually be conflicting because sometimes caffeine can cause headaches or help headaches it's all about the personal feeling you get from coffee. if you need it in the morning and not having it will make you feel worse, you should go with it but remember it also dehydrates you so continue to drink water like i said you drink water slam a water before you go to bed, slam a water when you get up in the morning. >> also toast and crackers, you say this is good for a hangover,
as well? >> this is a myth. everybody says bread soaks up the alcohol the next day. the fact is, it's already out of your stomach, into your intestines being asocand metalized. the good thing about carbs like this they boost your blood sugar levels and sometimes your liver is so busy met blooising that -- you are irritable and cranky and have a headache a and sometimes good to go with carbs. >> any points in time this is a good idea? >> in the morning. i wouldn't do it before you go to bed. >> medicine here. people say you have a hangover, take medicine. >> you have to be careful about the asees min fin. there can be conflict with the liver. a couple, don't overdo. >> all say be ware of liver damage if you drink and take this stuff. anything particular than anything else, plain aspirin. >> people respond to different drugs differently it is what works best with you but stay
away from acetaminophen, if you can. >> we have vitamins here. >> that's right. they are prevented from being absorbed by alcohol. the next day get supplements or go eggs, banana, milk an cereal you'll get the same out of those, as well but they will definitely make you feel worse if they are not in your body so supplements or a nice balanced breakfast. >> the next day when you wake up i you say impl the next day. >> exercise, you say, can be a good idea? >> it's always a good idea but not for the reasons people think. people say, you got a hangover, go sweat it out. it might make you feel better but not because you are sweating it out. the only thing helps metabolize alcohol, time, about one drink per hour. if you want to go to the gym, that's fine. you may feel better because naturally exercise releases endorphins which make you feel better. >> okay. couple much myths to debunk or -- >> let's debunk the myths. you see a bloody mary. >> it the hair of a blood, have a blood ys mary or alcohol.
oh, my gosh we've already got the ehhhhh. not a good idea? >> i think they a always good the next day but not because they'll help you with the hangover. the fact is when you have zero alcohol in your system that's when the hangover symptoms are the worst. if you are going to have a bloody mary, it is just going to prolong that crash. of course a lot of other stuff in it you might need, you've got obviously fruit in here from the northern illinois bloody mary family we like as much stuff in there as possible. you can obviously get nutrition in it, as well, generally speaking harrell of the dog is not going to cure your hangover but put it off to later. >> again rebecca tells me again if you eat grese in food it will absorb. >> that es are not french fries. >> we do our best. times are hard, matt. greasy food a good idea? >> before you start drinking because it is coat your intest stins and slow the be a sorps but the day after one more thing for your system to deal with. i say stay away from the greasy
food. there it is, the buzzer. >> good gosh. good to see you. i was joking about rebecca. she didn't say any of those. for more tips on avoiding the dreaded holiday hangovers go to our partner in health and search "hangover" rebecca. >> thanks, russ, i appreciate the clarification. anyone nursing a hangover right now that buzzer had to be fun. coming up, the car be lovers cleanse, the seven-day plan to a thinner yew in the new year. you're watching t"the early sho" on cbs. i feel the same way when i do taxes. turbotax has a unique gps feature that guides me step-by-step. and calculations are guaranteed 100% accurate, so i know it's done right. they even offer representation in case of an audit. which helps me reach my maximum refund, guaranteed. >> try turbotax online now. you don't pay unless you're satisfied with the results. ooh, a brainteaser.

inch i understand. what will be the republicans' first order of business in 2011? >> spending. they are going to cut spending and they've got this -- they are going to do a few things, one cut their own spending. congressional operations will be cut by 5% then they will cut a different piece of spending each week to keep this constant drumbeat then big, big fights how to funds the government, the big budget question and also they still have to fund continuing operations. so, the republicans, you will hear from them all day long, how will they will cut spending, cut spending. >> tea party members coming in soon, what impact will that have on business. >> this is why congressional leaders, republicans are so fixated on spending, what the tea party cares b. they want to see government government getting smaller and smarter. another thing you will see from republican leaders, oversights looking into what the obama administration did in the last two years. that will be looking at health care, the financial regulatory bill and the tea party says, you know, the republican leaders are on probation. even though they won in that
last election, they still have people looking over their shoulder. >> back in the clinton years we heard this term try an gullization in terms of how you ran governments. describe to us once again what that is and do you think president obama will employ thamplsts depends who you talk to. it is a dirty word among democrats. the way they talked about "it" with president clinton a purposeful strategy to find liberals and attack them so moderates and independents would look at the president and say, oh, he's not one of them, not one of those crazy liberals. president obama did something like that at the end of the year last year and that was basically to stand in the middle between liberals and conservatives and say, i have a better way on extending the bush tax cuts. but the distinction the white house makes is he was forced into that position by the political landscape. he didn't go seeking a fight with liberals to look better to independents. this may be a distinction without a difference and certainly liberals will be looking at the president and seeing if he's using them as a punching bag to improve his politics with the middle of the country. >> finally in the 30 or seconds
or so we have left, president obama, what's your first order of business in 2011. >> to capture the conversation about the budget, to put it in a big narrative frame so that you can find the democrats as they are talking about cutting spending you will say i have different priorities. to help the middle class and here's why my plan for this is better. put it in a big, big narrative. fortunately, he halls the state of the union he can do that. >> john dickerson, as always, thank you. >> thank you. >> once again, happy new year. from politics to style, rebecca has more predictions on the new year. rebecc rebecca? >> a new year means new styles from the year's hottest color to the latest trends in makeup and accessories.

color of 2011. why, you ask? >> i do. >> yes, i had the feeling you might. pantone, the world renowned color experts choose every year "the" color of the year based on pop culture, film, art. this year it is honeysuckle and they consider it very energizing and optimistic, something we certainly all need. >> yes. i like when they choose what i already have in my wardrobe so i don't have to get a new one. >> this is kind of special. >> this is borrowed from the runway collection and this also from nanette lapore, it doesn't have to be solid but can be flour. we have a great dress by cynthia steffi, they showed up on the runways for the spring 2011 collections, even looking to the pre-fall collections already happening, we're seeing honeysuckle pop up. >> i like it. >> also as far as makeup. >> still seeing lots of color. >> we are. i see that here. what can we expect in terms of, you know, how we should apply it and think about it the next
year. >> we see lots of color and it can be skwaer especially for women thinking i'm going to wear bright purple eye shadow to work. we are not recommending that but we saw the dio runway makeup was spectacular, brights and brights lips. >> i love the lips. >> instead of putting everything together in one look like we see here from the dior runway, you can add bits, a touch of an eyeliner you wear in the evening, or a very subtle sheer am pli indication of an eye shadow with a bit of color in it. not talking about the heavy kind of -- >> you don't have to walk the runway in real life. >> no. >> but you can mix it in. that's good. i like it, too. as far as handbags, we are all into handbags always something new for the season. what will this year's? >> structured bags what we are looking toward here. these two examples from millie launching her debut accessories collection in jan vn, these aren't even out yet, they will be in the next couple of weeks. basically anything with structure and shape.
you don't want to see anything slouchy or shapeless or sloppy. kind of taking a cue from the "mad men" style we admired so much last year. >> i love that style, i have to admit. in terms of clothing, one thing is always that question of the skirt because the skirt just keeps shrinking higher and higher. are we going to get any relief when it comes to hemlines? >> everything kinds of goes these days except diners really embracing for this year is the longer hemline seeing anything from just below the knee, even to the floor. that's not just for evening dresses. what we have here is straight off the runway from rising star designer -- seeing footage here from his 2011 spring show and, as you can see, it's not dowdy. people think it is a strange lepst but he thinks is very intelligent. >> i like that. >> sounds like you, katrina.
>> you, too. >> thank you. >> i want to show you this. this entire look which is amazing, head to toe strait from the marc jacobs runway something say amazing because marc jacobs is pretty much the arbiter of all things that are big. '70s inspired he showed on his runway this is actually a jumpsuit, wide legged and flowy. you see the inspiration with the flour, the belt, the neckpiece even a big hat that goes with it and designers followed suit. the big trend we see not only for spring but also for fall is all about that. i'm going to grab this shoe. >> yes. >> as we step back here. because everyone -- naysayers have said the platform, my favorite in the universe is out of style and we see all these kitten heels. straight from the marc jay jobs runway, people, the platform here to say and we saw it on prada and channelel it is not going anywhere. >> keep those platforms. >> stand tall. >> stand tall. >> thank you so much. happy new year to you. >> happy new year. >> up next our 2011 predictions

telling for "the situation". >> even with those abs? >> those abs of steel, i think are not going to cut it, i really don't. >> i would have thought "the situation's" book would have turned out to be the nicks way tolight or something, i don't know. >> i'm sure he was hope for that. >> didn't quite work out. what celebrity hook-ups might be surprised at impl the hollywood dating pool got more interesting, so many break-ups. jennifer aniston is single again. we're really look at these people and saying who are they going to date? it's really interesting also because you have sam mendez and kate winslet also out there. lots of talent and beauty. that always makes for an interesting dating situation for 2011. >> you are talking about all these people kind of on the rebound in 2011. >> that's right. big-time rebound for 2011. >> how about people who, unfortunately, in your view, might be breaking up the coming year. >> i think what you have to do is understand when celebrities break up, it's because of their
schedules, a lot of times. they're off on movie sets and touring. with odds against them i would say josh demeale and fergie. they are gorgeous but their schedules are so hectic. they really have to make an effort to come together, definitely a couple to watch in 2011. >> okay. we know of two huge weddings in 2011, one rebecca and mat malt. >> obviously. number one. >> today but let's talk built one, you know, all across. >> the one everyone's talking about, not mine apparently. >> prince william and kate middleton. how huge will this be. >> it is the wedding of the century. a billion people are expected to tune into this wedding. it will be massive. the thing that makes it endearing, will and kate say they want to make it the wedding of the people meaning they actually want to invite citizens to the wedding. they want to have charity workers sit in the pews, they are very conscious of the fact the economy isn't doing so well.
while it be lavish and royal, it will really be understated in the way that they want everybody involved in it. >> that will be really nice to see also, the grammy awards and emmy awards will be huge this year. in terms of the musical acts we'll see and people who might make really huge comebacks, what do you predict? >> i definitely think lady gaga will be huge. her album "born this way" is coming out in february 2011. she, herself, is saying it is the album of the decade. so, i think we predict huge things for her and you have bruno mars and lady antebellum san amazing act. they were nominated for six grammy awards. >> thank you so much. happy new year. >> thanks, amy. >> up next, the song that became an anthem for millions after 9/11. >> it's coming right up. this is "the early show" on cbs. what is it? oh just return it. returning gifts is easier than ever with priority mail flat rate boxes from the postal service. if it fits, it ships anywhere in the country for a low flat rate.
