caused in so short a time and how many lives taken. just watch what happens when in these tents people were housed after last week's quake. one loud bang is how residents described it. the quake did more damage to buildings that had been previously damaged last week. this is an area about 25 miles north of bologna. the death toll numbers may increase as rescue teams search through the rubble. it's a sad fact that many of the most beautiful buildings in northern italy are also the most vulnerable to earthquakes and of course sadder still that they t take their toll in human life. >> thank you. after today's texas primary, the republican race for the white house will be over. voters are expected to give mitt are exp romney enough delegates to become his party's nominee. t
>> instead of celebrateing, the romney campaign is fighting off a controversy over one of its supporters. bill plante is at the white house. >> reporter: good morning and good morning in the west. tonight after texas votes, it's official mitt romney will reach the 144 delegates and clinch the republican nomination. romney won't be there. he'll be in texas with one of one his more controversial there. supporters. >> how are you? >> reporter: the outcome in texas isn't in doubt so romney romney will be on the money trail money fund-raising in las vegas with donald trump who just a week ago just repeated his challenge to president obama's citizenship.enge last night when asked if he thought twice about campaigning with trump, this is how romney thought tw responded. >> i don't agree with all of the people that support me and i guess they don't all agree with everything i believe in. i need to get 50.1% or more and i'm appreciative to have the help of good people. >> reporter: the obama campaign or hit back with this web ad.ack
>> i have read about him. he's an arab. >> no ma'am.d >> reporter: it shows the last republican presidential nominee debunking the rumors on obama was a and calls on romney to do the same.ans on >> reporter: neither romney or the president served in the military, they are working hard to get the military vote. milita romney issued this warning. >> the world is not safe. >> reporter: romney didn't mention president obama by name but he seemed to take a swipe at him for proposing cuts in the military. >> if we were to follow that a kind of course there would be . no one that could stand to protect us. >> reporter: arlington national president cemetery president obama made the opposite case that the country is moving in the right direction. >> we're winding down the war in afghanistan and our troops will our continue to come home. a after a decade under the dark
cloud of war we can see the light of a new day on the horizon. >> reporter: this is the first election in years in which neither candidate has served in the military. a new gallup poll shows romney has a big advantage among veterans and leads the president 58% to 34% but the veterans vote is much the same way the rest of the population does and right now unemployment among veterans particularly among recent vets pis several points higher than l poin for everyone else. than for charlie, erica?lse. >> bill plante thank you. >> thank with us now, wall street journal's" columnist peggy noonan. welcome. >> good morning. >> this business about donald morning. trump.are george will over the weekend said why is he doing this? it was >> colorful words. my view is that the romney view i campaign made a mistake.omney camp
here is the mistake. there was a certain freak show atmosphere to the republican here to primaries in the past six months or so. now that's kind of over.over. the show is over. mr. romney wins the nomination nom tonight. texas will put him over the top. over it's a good time for him to differentiate himself from the stranger of the republican race. >> how does he do that?o >> one way you don't do that is so i a fund-raiser with donald trump. it's surprising that he did mitt romney this. i suspct mitt romney was old thinking in the old lbj way. he once said cleaning up his language it's better to have people on the inside of the tent aiming out than outside of the ing tent aiming in. >> ronald reagan said it's not what my people believe in but what i believe in. >> reagan got into an interesting point in 1980 when a
fringe group came out in robust support of him. that wasn't good for reagan. he was asked by reporters that m. these crazy people are supporting you. he said they may be supporting me but that doesn't mean i'm ting supporting them.ut t that was the end of it. was the >> this from "the washington post" today looking at nomination after texas. the republican party will have selected an unlikely standup arab in 2012 a new englander and party rooted in the south. a party fueled by hot rhetoric. a flip-flopper in a party that demands ideological purity. >> isn't that interesting? that's very well put.y wel >> how did this happen? what does he do now? >> there's a funny thing about mitt romney. his position as he espoused them in '08 and '12 were very very conservative and in line with
party orthodoxy of the right of the the party.unny and yet in a funny way he comes across as a classic republican moderate. that's that's an interesting differencetween t between things people stand on t and the way they present s the themselves. >> the right didn't trust him in tr the primaries. >> well you know at the end of at the day he was the guy who was guy always starting out with 30% andilding from building from that. intervi i interviewed him the other day and he said why are you doing well right now?ing well he said i proved myself. he sai we fought in big states. we were ten points behind but we myself toughed it out and we had good campaigns and i kept emerging as the victor. and that is what happened.ht there's such a strong right with strong views and if you look at the history of their nominees in
the past few decades, they to tended to choose the guy they hought thought was more moderate. >> which in many ways is the guy they thought could win. i want to talk about veterans showing greater support for mitt s romney. how important will veterans be e in this race? >> i think it's 18%.rates it's less significant. what's significant is mitt romney's support among veterans that is lopsided. he doesn't carry them by five points or ten points.ts. he's up there around 20 points. do i think it's significant?nk yes. do i consider it shocking? no.king? veterans tend in their impulses ses and their very way of looking at to life to be somewhat co conservative. i don't think they ever fully erstood understood president obama. i'm not shocked. >> peggy, thank you. >> thank you. >> good to see you. egypt's historic election
pr turned violent on friday. fire was set to a candidate's campaign headquarters. a u.n. special envoy, kofi annan is in damascus meeting with bashar al assad. a they are blamed for a massacre 1 on friday that killed more than 100 people mostly women and oday tha children. a u.s. official said most of the victims were executed at pointblank range including entire families. officials in canada want to know why an engine apparently fell apart on an air canada flight to japan. th that boeing 777 had to make an emergency landing in toronto on nday a monday after an engine shut down and chunks of debris fell to theth, good m ground. mor >> it's considered one of the f most popular planes out there nicknamed the triple seven.

befor safely making an emergency landi landing at 3:53 p.m. >> we came in very fast. again, at least twice the normal speed. >> reporter: this passenger was mid air when he found out m something was wrong.nd he snapped these pictures after napped the landing. after >> we pulled off to a special area. fire crews and i'm taking pictures for my son thinking this is cute having no idea that m something fell off our plane and this we were lucky to have landed at all. >> reporter: investigators collected some of the debris monday and are also expected to tigators take a close look at the plane p itself. >> these types of failures are extremely rare.se they'll tear down those engines part by part and piece by piece sur to make sure they can understand exactly what happened during this failure. reporter: >> reporter: no injuries have been reported and air canada is canada promising a full investigation.ation. it will try to determine whether the flying debris did in fact come from that plane. the transportation safety board in canada will lead the
investigation. erica and charlie? >> seth thank you. tropical depression beryl could pick up steam as it moves back toward the atlantic ocean. it's expected to move northeast toward the carolinas by tomorrow. beryl came ashore early yesterday in jacksonville. packing strong winds and dumping several inches of rain on the region. tens of thousands ss lost power. region minor flooding but no injuries reported.as congress is getting new warnings about the fiscal clip coming at the end of this year. that's when tax cuts and unemployment benefits run out and automatic budget cuts kick in unless congress takes action. former treasury secretary robert rubin writes about this. the election is economics and who can deal with the economy in the future. what impact will europe have on this and what are the dangers
that it could unravel even more and leap across the pond? >> in a word charlie, think theleap acros leaders in europe have been behind the curve from the e b beginning. it's troubled right now. i think that unless they come together to provide a political o solution to current ulties, th difficulties, i think the risks are that this could get worse as time goes on and i think as as matters get worse in europe, i e think it creates a real possibility particularly there's cr a contagion of spain and italy getting involved a real possibility that could affect t the global economy including the united states and if greece were to pull out, i think probability is very high that would have serious contagion effects across the eurozone and that in turn could have serious adverse impacts to the united states and around the world. >> there is serious consideration that today more people are taking it seriously. more p >> the problem is greece is a problem from the very beginning. pr instead of addressing this at e the beginning which is what
european political should have ssing done, it's gotten worse and worse and worse and they are having difficulty finding a solution of greece coming out of the eurozone.so i think the probability of greece leaving eurozone is probably less than 50-50. even if it stays within the euro eurozone, problems are enormous enor and that could create contagion and cause bank runs and spain and elsewhere and if that happens, i think it has in spa potential probability but not certainty of having serious negative impacts here. >> let's talk about your piece to in the journal. you talk about this the best best political environment for real fiscal action in a long time. do you really see something really concrete long-term happening?ong t >> well that's a very good question. as i say in the piece. i think there are three broad possibilities in the face of the circumstance that charlie mentioned before.ies. number one congress does would nothing. that would cause -- congressional budget office said that would lead to a recession
next year.year. probability of that is low. number two, as most people thinkhat which is that dysfunctionalty in down congress they'll kick issues down the road and that will conti continue where we've been that may not have an effect but hav there's a real possibility that the markets and more importantly the economy could respond negatively to that. to and of course long-term that continues a dangerous situation. the third possibility, which i think is a realistic possibility is that two parties in congress would finally decide in face of rty difficult circumstances to reachch across party lines and reach a sound resolution of our fiscal situation which could have bu favorable effect on the economy but it has to be done the right krks way which is a ten-year program. >> the major debate will be over how to raise revenue. we hear tax the wealthy more.
would that do enough? >> what i think we should do is exactly what you said. we should raise top rates to where they were under president said. clinton and under president clinton we had longest economic reside expansion in nation's history. that won't be sufficient. sufficient further measures will have to be be taken. i think bowles-simpson had the n right idea in that respect. v bowles-simpson wanted to make s and adjustments. if you take top rates back to where president clinton had, there were additional revenues then obtained by limiting some of those deductions and credits and you could get adequate revenues. >> thank you very much. >> you're welcome. >> nice to be with you.
lecture from the judge. we'll look at the deliberations and why the behavior of some of the jurors is becoming an issue in the case. more than a year after the tsunami in japan, disaster reaches all of the way to alaska. >> this beach we're looking at here is at least 50 miles of this. and there are hundreds and hundreds of tons of debris on this beach. >> we're back to show you what might be coming to the west coast. you're watching "cbs this morning." >> announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by oc it's cookout season, and we honor this all-american tradition with the red, white, and blue. ocean spray cranberry, white cranberry, and blueberry juice cocktails.

>> anna werner is covering the trial. anna what's happening? >> reporter: as you said they come back from the holiday weekend with the same burden deciding on the six felony counts of john edwards. the judge is going to start the day a little bit different today. they're discussing what was described by the judge as a juror matter. they don't know what it is because spectators were kept out of the courtroom. meanwhile there's a couple of odd things that happened. number one, one of the alternate jurors ss seemed to be flirting with edwards. others noticed. and some of them dressed alike. on thursday they wore yellow. on friday they all wore red. we don't know why, but they appear to be having a good time. meanwhile the actual jury does ot appear to be having fun.
some look tense, frustrateded on what are complicated charges here. we'll be watching again today to see what happens, whether they get any closer to a verdict. charlie and erica? >> 48 hours' correspondent erin moriarty and analyst jack ford. what's going on? >> here's what you have to keep in mind. if you try cases for a living if you chronicle cases iffer a living, one of the first things you realize, you have no clue what's going on in a juror's mind. we talked about a juror smiling at someone. the first case i ever prosecuted, from the very beginning, i've got the foreman, he's nodding at me smiling, i thought, he's with me. turns out we go in. from the very first moment he said i'm voting against the prosecution. what i learned is he liked me. he didn't like my case. so you really -- you can't read
into their gestures and say definitively this is what this means. >> and it's not really unusual for a federal corruption case to go this long. blagojevich's, he had two trials. the first one went 14 days and there was a mistrial. the next went ten days in deliberation. you really can't tell. the one thick i think is clear is the defense attorneys did tell the jury please do not look at our client. he may be a bad husband, but he didn't commit any crime. think obviously they didn't go right back in and convict him, so they're really taking a look at the evidence. >> jurors, i think, learned that high-profile cases, the o.j. sim simpson case. the great criticism of the trial was it was nine hours. i think jurors are working very hard. they're saying we're going to take our time whatever time is necessary. >> there is a question of these alternate jurors and showing up in the same outfits two days in
a row. that seems odd. >> they are totally bored. you realize they are not included in any of the deliberations. they're sitting around day after day. they could get called in if you lost a juror, so they have to stay there. can you imagine? so they're sitting around going, okay, what are we going do tomorrow? let's all wear yellow. let's all wear red. what else are you going to do? they're there all day. it did strike me also that one of the things jurors really have to deal with in this case, here you have the u.s. government not really agreeing on whether these were illegal campaign contributions, you have the campaign contributor saying they're not illegal. they don't have to be listed on financial statements be you have the justice department to do. so what are you expectings from 12 jurors to be able to look at this very complex law. >> so that's what's taking so much time. >> they have -- interestingly they don't have to figure out the facts in this case.
everybody kind of know what the facts are. they have to figure do the facts fit within the parameters of what the prosecution says the law is. as erin says you're not even getting agreement among the federal authorities which is a recipe -- again, you dmoejts what the jurors are going do. it could be there's one person but when you have one person it could be a recipe for a hung jury because people are looking at it saying if they don't agree, how can we. >> is a hung jury a victory for john edwards? >> always for the defense. your mantra is anything but a conviction. you know what? if this jury hangs, you sit down as his attorney and say why do we have do it again. you guys gave this your best shot. it didn't work. you want to find out what the numbers were. how many were leaning toward acquittal. if you have to try it another time, as a prosecutor i always
felt it was better to retry a case because you knew exactly what the roadmap was and the defense was going to do. >> that happened in the blagojevich case. that's exactly what happened. they had fewer counts and they did convict him on 17 counts. they had 23 the first time around. >> we're not done talking about it yet. thanks very much. last week we showed you how the debris from the tsunami is washing up onshore. we take a look at the damage on one alaskan i land. we'll show you radioactive damage too. that's all ahead. you're watching "cbs this morning." i've worked hard to build my family. and also to build my career. so i'm not about to always let my frequent bladder urges, or the worry my pipes might leak get in the way of my busy lifestyle.

is new. >> we can tell there's more because we do monitoring projects on an annual basis. >> reporter: pal ister runs this. >> we really have poured our heart full into this and it's hard. that's all we do. this is definitely out of a building building. >> reporter: pallister says every piece of debris they pick up will be a reminder of tragedy. >> you think of the horrible destruction that people in japan suffered but it doesn't make it any easier to take here. >> reporter: when a basketball turned up on the shore it was traced back to a japanese middle school destroyed by the tsunami. alicia who found the ball is preparing to send it back. thenational oceanic oceanic & atmospheric administration is running models

walter cronkite covered that story and many more in his career, he became the most trusted man in america, now the cbs news legend is the subject of a new biography. >> "cronkite" written by news consultant doug glast brinkley who joins us with a very big book. >> good morning. >> i look at that tape and so much part of my dna i lived in turkey as a kid but the only news cast we watched when we came back to the states was walter cronkite and to read in your book it was almost a fluke he got into television. >> that's right. the big deal was radio and he was a print reporter trying to get into radio and edward r. murrow wanted to recruit him during world car ii to be the cbs voice from stalin grad he did a handshake agreement with murrow that he would go on radio but he ended up blowing murrow off and stayed with united press and then by 1950 the korean war
came and cronkite thought he could be a foreign correspondent and instead he was shoved in a broom closet to do beginning television for wpoc in d.c. nobody knew if television news was going to work. it did. it took the country by storm in the eisenhower area and cronkite rose with the tide. >> when you look at this extraordinary career two things that stand out, one that, but the sense of all the election coverage as well but also the moment in which he said that -- talked about what lyndon johnson famously said. >> cronkite was for the vietnam war in '65, '66, and '67, gone in '65 and got toured and too enamored with the military machinery, the airplanes and the grenades and all, and so he came back saying we're going to win this thing we're the united states. morley safer said walter they're lying to you in '65. cronkie befriended morley they
were very, very great friends, but by '68, cronkite went and really talked to the vietnamese people, talked to homeless people and refugees and soldiers on the ground and recognized not only was the war probably immoral but johnson was lying to him and he went on tv on cbs report at night, not during his half hour broadcast, and called it a stalemate and the ripple effect was gigantic ostensibly lbj said to his press secretary if i've lost cronkite i've lost middle america. my policies were not going to be effective. >> who was the walter cronkite that you introduce us to that millions of americans did not see on television? >> well, first off, he was obsessed with news reporting, as a kid he was a paperboy in kansas city he loved the wire service. one of his great skills he was like a jaguar leaping to grab those wire reports. you know you got the elbow
walter to grab -- he wanted the first crack at all of those because you break news when you're doing that. the real man, he was everything everybody thinks he was, the nice -- there was nobody he didn't want to talk to a very democratic spirit. >> you said he was very curious. >> hugely. >> very curious guy. >> curious about how machines particularly worked and space he was so good at it. edward r. murrow was going after joe mccarthy in the '50s cronkite after sputnik got on military aviation and was able to do the broadcasts of alan shepard and john glenn and the moon race when he did this marathon broadcast for "apollo 11" and what's cronkite going to say when armstrong steps on the moon and there was a lot of talk about it and all he said was, my golly, i'm speechless. people loved him for that. in his private life he loved drinking, the old boy's club endless amount of friends.
it's hard to get anybody that knew him that didn't like him because he didn't take himself too seriously and his wife betsy wouldn't let his ego get too big. he was grounded. kept his wristwatch on central time even when he was in new york. >> he famously visited george clooney at lake cuomo and places like that knew a lot of very famous people. >> i interviewed clooney's father who used to be the anchor man in cincinnati and clooney family, they were one of walter's closest friends, george clooney has done a number of nice things for walter including picking up tabs if he found out walter was in a restaurant, his father would tell him and he would buy the meal and also have him as you mentioned go to lake cuomo. they would go swimming together. >> you showed he was a very human being too, you said he liked drinking and talked a little bit about stripteases, there was a whole other side of walter cronkite we did not know that said he still became the most trusted man in america,
how? >> because look he was dubbed that in 1972 and look at the history of the '60s, nobody trusted anybody. i mean young people were rioting and angry at their parents, everybody thought lyndon johnson and mcnamara lied nixon and agnew were liars, so the trust factor was corroded and there was walter cronkite coming in beaming, breaking through the glass in your living room telling you the news day after day. a george clooney only has to sell one movie a year you pay and watch him for two hours but cronkite had to be a steady eddie, he had to be comfortable with him in your bedroom and living room and people were. >> what was his life like after he stepped down from the anchor's desk some. >> he deeply regretted it. he did the right thing in the sense, he quit at 64. back in those days 1981 65 was the age you had to quit. we don't abide by that. >> we're glad that's over. >> you remember that was part of the deal in life. >> yeah. >> and about six months later he regretted. he had a show called "universe"

alibi. >> did her alibi check out? >> not completely. >> reporter: turns out nanette had a secret a big one. >> eric naposki. >> reporter: a professional football player who thought nanette was his girlfriend. >> you can only imagine it was such a shock to all of us. >> reporter: police believe eric and nanette plotted to kill mclaughlin for his money but it would take 15 years for prosecutors to have enough evidence to charge them with murder. in two separate trials eric and nanette were both convicted and that's where we thought the story would end. but it didn't. eric naposki says he's finally ready to tell the truth about what really happened and who is truly responsible for the murder of bill mclaughlin. >> i might wear handcuffs and i might be locked up but i'm no criminal. there's a person out there who actually committed a crime and today i'm going to tell the world who really did it and prove my innocence. >> sold. i've set my dvr because i'm not
going to be home when you're coming on tonight so i set my dvr before i left home. this is what i don't get, troy. if you know who committed it, why would you spend a day in prison to protect someone snels. >> i asked him that same question, gayle. if i knew who the real killer was i would be screaming from the mountain tops. he said no one would believe him until he had the evidence to prove his claims. he did not get that evidence until nanette's trial after she was convicted he had thousands of pieces of discovery available to him and he was able to piece together his case. he presented us with bank transfer statements from nanette to the alleged hitman in the weeks leading up to the murder as well as phone calls between the two of them. he had the phone records. he didn't have any of this until her trial. >> he was able to gather the case while he's behind bars? >> right. >> did you believe him? whatever it is did you believe him? >> he's -- i visited him three times, been there three times and he's a complicated guy. he's straight out of central

whether it be from rudy or myself and through mental preparation too. >> but what she just said you can tell something about a person by the way they play golf. what can you tell about tiger by the way he plays golf today? >> i think the tiger we see today is a little lost compared to the past. i they because he's going through another revamp of his swing. when you think about tiger woods and his greatness, when i started with tiger, he was 17. we went through two different revamps of his swing and he went through haney. the average person would say why would someone that good do that. because he has this burning desire to always get better and he's never satisfied with where he is. >> what's wrong with that? >> absolutely nothing wrong with that but it takes time. it takes time to change. you look at tiger. he's had four knee suchries so many off course problems and all of these things enter into your

my wife says it's a nightmare to go to a movie because i see every flaw in the movie. all of a sudden i see 50 things at once and it just clicks. what i see in your swing that isn't right that causes all the problems that isn't right jumps out at me and then you have to articulate it to the individual. i go back to the way my father taught my brothers and i. he said you have to teach golf at a second grade level, meaning a second grader can understand it. thing people today make it too complicated. > so when the great ones have something go wrong with their game, what do you see? what happens to people who have had more than 10,000 hours oven the golf course? >> you go back to great fundamentals, grip alignment. the work i did with ernie els. you go back to basic fundamentals. then you look at what someone does naturally.
