thanks for watching. enjoy the day. "the early show" is next. >> caption colorado, llc manolo ack. saying he never sexually harassed anyone, but financial settlements were made with two of his accusers. what will this mean for his campaign and how will it impact the rest of the field? live to washington for the very latest. more than 2 million customers still without power this morning in the northeast as the death toll rises to more than 20 from the weekend's massive storm. this as an investigation is open into the jetblue flight that stranded passengers on the tarmac for more than seven hours during the storm. michael jackson's doctor said he'll reveal the plans to testify in his manslaughter trial after a key defense witness says he will never given jackson a powerful sleep drug at home.
7:01 am
reality bites. kim kardashian files for divorce just ten weeks after her made-for-tv wedding. she says sometimes things don't work out. what happens to all the money now? early this tuesday morning, now? early this tuesday morning, november 1st, 2011. captioning funded by cbs good morning. welcome to "early show" here on a tuesday morning. november 1. >> how did that happen? >> i'm chris wragge. >> i'm erica hill. we begin with gop presidential frontrunner herman cain who is denying charges of sexual harassment. he was accused of inappropriate behavior 12 years ago and the women involved did receive money. jan crawford is in washington with the latest on what is a major distraction to the cain campaign. part of the message was the changing message. good morning. >> he spent most of the day
7:02 am
trying to shoot down these allegations, but sometimes his story did change and all of this is coming just as several new polls show him solidifying his standing as a leader of the republican pack. >> i have never sexually harassed anyone. >> i never sexually harassed anyone. >> was there any behavior on your part that you think might have been inappropriate? >> in my opinion, no. >> reporter: the accusations against cain date back to the 1990s and brought to light sunday on the politico website. a group cain then led complained that he engaged in sexually elicit behavior. there was a settlement, cain initially denied. >> i hope it wasn't for much, because i didn't do anything. >> reporter: but later acknowledges on fox news. >> yes, there was some sort of settlement or termination and i don't even know what the contents of that was since it
7:03 am
was found baseless. >> reporter: the allegations, if created, a media fire storm and come as cain is rising in the polls. >> i told you this bullseye on my back has gotten bigger. i have no idea. we have no idea the source of this witchhunt. >> reporter: others have gone further alleging that clearance thomas, cain is the victim of lynching. >> you have a high ranking black figure who dares to challenge the republican elites, as well. >> reporter: but the reporter who broke the story denies he had any agenda other than the truth. >> i was doing my job and reporting a story about a candidate for president of the united states who had serious allegations lodged against him. >> reporter: despite the controversy swirling around him, cain was able to lighten the mood at his national broadcast
7:04 am
appearance. ♪ i'll never know why jesus came to love me so ♪ >> now, cain said the story was designed to force him out of this race. he vowed that it wouldn't. his chief of staff told me that his supporters, cain supporters were really rallying behind him, erica. online donations yesterday were up 75% he said. but the question is how long that will last if there are more disclosures. >> jan crawford in washington. thanks. >> helped john mccain with the 2008 presidential nomination. we want to have you handicap what we've seen over the last 24 hours or so. taking a look at how this was handled by the campaign, politico said they did reach out ahead of the story. so, they should have known this was coming. was it handled correctionally? >> no, erica, it hasn't been. three things should have happened. one, they should have known it was coming. two, they should have been prepared and, three, they should
7:05 am
have had a singular message and stayed on that message. the problem is not so much the story itself, but the changing nature of the story. and, so, if cain would simply have come out and acknowledged that the story had happened and been prepared and had a proactive statement about the incident and left it at that, it would have been fine. but now he keeps talking and changing the story and that's the problem is the evolution of the story. >> how does he take control of the situation today? >> well, he should just be affirmative and acknowledge that there was a suit and say that the deal was sealed and proactively reaffirm what he said before. he never harassed anybody. the problem is he went into the details of the alleged incident. which he never should have done. he should have said it never happened. i never harassed anybody. there was a settlement, end of story. the problem gets into versions of the story now. now he has a version of the
7:06 am
story and i assure you that the next thing we'll hear is is a version from the one of the alleged incidents and then competing versions of the story. i think it was a mistake for cain to get into how it happened, how it happened and where it happened. just better to say it never happened and that harassment never happened and that should have been the end of the story. >> that's how it came out. you gave us ideas of how the campaign should handle this. moving forward today, as jan mentioned, support among his core group there is up, kooring to his campaign manager. there was that rise in donations yesterday. how did the rest of the candidates handle this? they have been laying low, is that what you would have recommended? were you working with one of the other folks here who is looking for that bid? >> never get in the way of the train wreck when that's happening to your opponent. the other candidates should absolutely stay away from this. the problem for cain is two-fold.
7:07 am
he is seen as authentic. that he is trying to change his storyline or that he's not being truthful about it, that's problematic, too. his support among women is soft anyway. so, if this story gets any sort of traction, his support among republican women could collapse and that spells real danger for him. >> mark, good to have you with us and let us know if any of the candidates give you a call. >> sure will. all right, let's turn now and get you the latest from wall street. stocks, unfortunately, diving for a second straight day? >> investors are selling this morning shaking confidence in a european debt deal and rebecca jarvis is here with the story for us this morning. seems like the deal was in place and then pullbacks. what exactly is going on? >> what happened in europe is two-fold. greece, major debt problems there. last week it looked like greece had agreed to cut some costs in the country of greece. for example, paying for government jobs, for example,
7:08 am
for paying for entitlements. they had agreed in greece as of last week to cut things there in order to get a bigger bailout from the european union. from the other european countries. as of today, greece's prime minister has come forward and said, you know what, i'm not actually going to go forward with this deal until my people, the greeks, vote in favor of it. about 60% of the people in that country are on record saying they're not in favor of it, in order to get a deal, it looks like they're not even going to get the votes for it in the country and this adds a whole new layer of problems for getting the bailout in europe. >> that is the ripple effect we're seeing in the united states and across the world. later this week in france there's the g-20 meeting. obviously, this will add a new dimension to that. >> well, it will add a new dimension and the entire world, i mean, the united states has said to europe, get your act together. we need you to fix your debt problems in greece because it's having a ripple effect here in
7:09 am
the united states. we see it in the market and across the world in world markets and we see it playing out in some businesses here in this country because businesses get, i mean, the big companies that are based here in the united states, they get some of their revenue and they get some of the profits from europe and if greece goes down, so goes the rest of the european economy with it and, as a result, the united states has major issues down the road, as well. which is why you see the negative stock reaction. >> talk about the domino effect that could have. >> everyone around the world is pay a price for it right now. all right, this morning, nearly 2 million people are waking up without power after this weekend's snow storm which is now responsible for at least 21 deaths, including a massachusetts woman who died from carbon monoxide. >> here's more, michelle miller has the latest. >> reporter: this is how the sternburg family spent halloween night.
7:10 am
sharing tales of trick or treat by candlelight. their third night in a row without power. their one comfort, a propane space heater, which out of caution, they turn off before going to bed at night. >> what's your routine at night without power? >> lots of blankets. heat the place up. you know, light the candles. >> reporter: they're like many residents in milford, new jersey, who refused to let a late october snow storm dampen their spirits. >> i have regulars. >> reporter: you do? >> they come every year. >> reporter: rain or shine, veterinarian carol carburry becomes a witch, but snow nearly simmered down her cauldron. she is also without power. what was it that made you say, i got to do this? >> i'm the witch every year, i had to do it. i couldn't let them down. >> reporter: kids are grateful for candy and parents like michelle limen are thankful neighbors are sharing
7:11 am
generators. >> i was just bragging on saturday how we had such warm halloweens and i think i spoke too soon and i jinxed everyone. >> reporter: one neighbor has supplied power to five homes on this street, including limen's. >> we got in about 7:00 last night after being without power at the hotel where we were. >> reporter: a large tree limb narrowly missed marilyn klein's home while she was away for the weekend. was it freezing, cold? >> it was really cold in here. >> reporter: utility companies say power may not be restored to many areas before late this week, which means more dark, cold nights without the benefits of spooky fun. michelle miller, cbs news. >> lots of problems in new jersey. my folks are still without power. more fallout from the jetblue flight this weekend that was stuck on the tarmac for more than seven hours. >> the government is now investigating how it could have happened, but a cbs news travel editor reports the government's
7:12 am
highly touted passenger's bill of rights may not actually help the passengers in this case. >> it's ridiculous. the airport is just leaving us here and not doing anything about it. >> reporter: jetblue flight 504 among 25 flights forced to land saturday night after snowy weather forced some 50 planes to be diverted from new york airports. >> is there any way you can get a tug and a tow bar out of here and get us towed smo ed somewhe gate or something. >> reporter: 129 passengers stuck on the tarmac for more than seven hours without water and working restrooms. >> they're totally filled. nobody can go in them any more. you just have to hold it. >> reporter: tempers began to flair onboard. >> i got a problem here on the airplane. >> reporter: jimmy brown was a passenger on jetblue flight 504. >> behind us there was almost a fight and in front of us people yelling, you know, just bring the stairs. let us get off the plane. >> reporter: rob marister
7:13 am
apologized. >> we know we let some of you down, for that, we're truly sorry. >> reporter: the passenger bill of rights states if a plane is delayed on the tarmac for more than three hours, the airline can be fined up to $27,500 per passenger, which in this case, could amount to more than $3.5 million. but the bill excludes airports from any responsibility. >> when they recognize that they, too, were start eeding to get overloaded. they should have said this is a situation where we can not accommodate all the aircraft and we need to divert somewhere else. >> our passengers and our crews need to have these situations revolved much quicker than this. >> reporter: pilot chelsly sullenberger believes everyone must work together. >> the airlines, the faa, the airports have to have plans.
7:14 am
>> here with more for us this morning. peter, how does this happen? whether it's the airport's responsibility or the airline's responsibility, how do you leave people on a plane for seven hours? >> once you divert a plane for whatever reason and an airport accepts that plan, a certain procedure they should have. >> we know it's not a big airport, but you have to do something. there's a guy in a wheelchair. >> we don't need a jetway here. go back to the future, get the stairs to the plane, get the people off the plane. >> which the pilot requested at one point. he requested the police come out. >> if i'm sitting on that plane, i'm literally, thinking open the door and put the slide down and get out of here. >> a jetblue flight attendant tried that. the pilot didn't declare an onboard emergency and he didn't call the local authorities. this goes beyond talking to the tower. this is a 911 call in the making. >> do you think the pilot is at
7:15 am
fault? >> i think the pilot should have gone one step further. >> could you ever realistically, though, is there a situation where the pilot could say, okay, i'm giving you the okay, get the slide out and get these people off the plane. is that an option? >> once you deploy that slide, it's a very expensive process. the bottom line here is this, in the 16 months before the three-hour rule was put in effect, 977 incidents of delays more than three hours. in the 16 months since it, only 54. now, here are the big questions. how many airlines have been fined for it? >> do you think they'll be fined here? >> no. >> no one has yet. >> i'll tell you those passengers would like to see a fine levee. >> they may get together and ask for something on their own, too. betty nguyen is in for jeff glor at the news desk. good morning. >> good morning, erica and chris. good morning to you. this morning, flight 16 from airline carrier lot from newark

7:43 am
>> the more to inacceptsive natural gas does is it's a tremendous boost to our economy. it means electricity price res lower, gas price res lower, companies that would have gone overseas are building them in the united states. >> politicians of every strine -- >> it's a path forward president obama endorsed directly in march. >> recent innovations have given us the opportunity to tap large reser reserves. perhaps a century's worth of reserves. >> reporter: the reserves are buried thousands of feet below ground in massive shale rock formations in states like texas, louisiana, arkansas, and as far north aspen pen and ohio and new york. in 2010, the united states surpassed russia as the largest producer of natural gas. we currently get about a quarter of our energy from natural gas and demand is climbing. >> is it easy? is it accessible to get to that 200 year's worth? >> yes. it's not that easy in the sense
7:44 am
that it comes to you. you have to go drill a well. >> the process is noun as hydraulic fracturing. companies drill a well one to two meals below the either and turn it sideways, pumping large amounts of gas to the service. >> we've drilled about 125 wells in this particular field. >> that's a lot of natural gas. how many dollars does something like that equate to? >> they wells cost typically around $7 million, $8 million. some of the best wells might pay out in as little as 30 to 60 days. >> but the price of natural gas has dropped significantly, raising questions about the industry's profitability and its long-term nurch. >> if we go into a deeper economic decline, a double dip, then we would see natural gas prices probably fall. they could fall to a level where you would see drilling activity

decline simply because people don't have the capital. our company will make $2 billion this year for its shareholders. the industry is a protble industry. we're the lowest cost gas producers in the word today. and i'm going to deliver this american treasure to the american people because they need to know about it. t the. >> mcclendon tells us he's been in touch with several european conditions that are interesting in replicating this. tomorrow we'll look at whether high drat dralic fracturing is safe and if energies are done in the property agencies. >> that's dwight dividing communities. >> it is dividing communities. on one hand, you have a cheaper potentially cleaner alternative to oil. but on the other hand, there is an impact on the communities.

8:35 am
more support for it? maybe because he's honest. >> i also think that the party is more divided right now, more so than it ever has been. so i think it's been tough for him to get out there. but, you know, if you stop and think about the elect blth factor and someone who can get to democrats, independentes and republicans and, you know -- >> we've noticed that it's one issue that people, you know, look at, whether he worked for obama or he's for one thing or the other and you think, you know, at the end of the day, these issues don't really matter. when he was an ambassador or china fwhab it was a nonpolitical job. he's served for four presidents, reagan, bush, bush and obama. i served my country. that's what i was raised to do. i think some people take that the wrong way. >> as much fun as you guys are having with add jon 2012 girls, which is the twitter handle, you joke around with some of the

8:42 am
you don't need to pea pai these high premium. anybody with a crone inillness, you want to make sure you get a traditional plan. there's one key thing, this ch is great. the hsa, the health savings account that is tied to a high dedoubleble plan. they're like an i.r.a., but for your health care. it's a tax deduction, up to $6,250 if you're a family of two or more. and it can grow, you can invest it and it's potable. when you go from job to job, it stays with you through retirement. this is another way to save for your health care coverage. >> let's say you have kids that are often sick. >> traditional plan is for you. it's going to cost way too much for you to go through that deductible. if you have to go to the doctor often, stick with a traditional plan. but a high deductible plan makes sense for a lot of other folks. >> and you mentioned this hsa.
8:43 am
a lot of people are more familiar with what's called an fsa, the flexible spending account. walk us through quickly what the kirchbss are, but allow you can use that plan to your advantage. >> and that's very different. that's something we've seen a lot of hsa is different in the sense that this is something you can invest, it grows, take it with you. an fsa, this is an account you put money in and it has its limits, as well. and it is changing. in 2013, the new rules are that this is going to slipg from $5,000 that you can put away to $2,500 in 2013, also over-the-counter medications, no longer qualify for ffas. this is an account that if you don't use it, you lose it. if you know you need insulin, this is a way to put pretax money away. >> if you're going to have a baby. >> exactly. >> i wouldn't know, but i'll taker word for it. >> they are very expensive. >> if you don't have health care coverage through your employer, what should you do? >> and there's more and more
