7:04 am
fruit and small sandwiches. >> reporter: stranded at sea wasn't the way anyone planned to spend their vacation much less their honeymoon. jeffrey and sabrina were married saturday and their family finally reached them wednesday. >> they were awoke by the smell of smoke in their cabin and instinctually reached for life jackets and ran for the deck. >> no one was injured but they suffered the next several days. the journey finally comes to an end today but only after a slow tug of 6 miles an hour. carnival has called the trip challenging. >> we know we ruined their vacations. we thought the best thing nor us to do was to give them their money back, make them whole on this. >> reporter: in the meantime, on board, carnival said it tried to ease tensions any way they could. >> the bars have actually been open. we opened the bars. we've been providing free
7:05 am
drinks. >> reporter: but once many of those 3,000 passengers get back here on land,p isn't over. the trip originated in long beach and many will have t jump on a bus for a two hour ride up north. matt, the use o this fire in the engine rooms still under investigation. >> all right. miguel in san diego this morning, thanks for your report. we appreciate it. five after the hour. now after the political battle in washington, who will lead the democrats in congress? kelly has the latest,ood morning to you. >> reporter: hi there, meredith. if you thought the elections were over, not so fast. there's another critical set of votes happening next week when all e newly and re-elected members of congress come to town to choe their party leaders. on both sides, there's already been a lot of jockeying for positions. john boehner's big promotion comes in january. >> you will see, from day one, that i say what i mean and i
7:06 am
mean what i say. >> reporter: a couple of spots on boehner's team are up for grabs and one newcomer is generating buzz. republicans added a new leadership position for just one newly elected member. south dakota's christie got plenty of notice with this. >> first of all, i won't make nancy pelosi speaker. i approved this message. sorry, nancy. >> reporter: and she has backing and so does michele bachmann who claimed her ability to bilize activists qualified her for a place in gop leadership. but bachmann bowed out wednesday night in favor of an establhment conservative. >> i think he stands for the same things michelle does. not like a cice one person is on the dark side and the other person is inhe tea party. >> reporter: counting votes is what speaker nancy pelosi does very well.
7:07 am
even after republicans tried to drive her out, she has enough support to remain the top democrat. >> fire nancy, fire nancy! >> reporter: after her party's dramatic fall, her allies are still around. >> the caucus is more liberal now because a lot of moderate and conservative members were defeated. her base is very strong. >> reporter: but pelosi's surprising decision to stay has triggered a divisiv scramble. in the next ngress, democrats lose one leadership position, that leaves current majority leader steny hoyer and whi jim clyburn fighting to win the same spot. >> what's happening is people are trying to decide if one candidate has the votes. >> reporter: taking an indirect shot at nancy pelosi, boehner says as speaker, he will not use military planes to get home, a security measure provided to pelosi and her republican predecessor. >> i have flown back and forth to my district on commercial aircraft and i wil continue to
7:08 am
do that. >> reporter: using military airplanes for the speakers of the house was designed to increase security after 9/11. boehner says he won't do that anymore. for those who have to decide between howier and clyburn, it's a tough squall, howier is more moderate and jim clyburns the highest ranki inin ining african in the house and nancy pelosi would like to see them both stay. >> welcome this morning. >> thank you. >> nancy pelosi, i think she surprised a lot of people when she said she would run for minority leader. her poll numbers are very low. how do the democrats feel about her being the face of their party the next few years. >>there is obviously concerned. the people talked to in the white house said it could be overanalyzed. and they don'think it's the
7:09 am
face of the person in 2012. the inside is what nancy pelosi is best at, getting things passed, raising money for democrats, holding things in line. and she can be a polarizing figure we saw after the elections. >> john boehner, likely to take her position as speaker of the house, took a jab at her and said, when i'm speaker, i won't be taking military jets, i will take commercial flights. what do you think the priority will beor the party? >> cutting spding. if you reach out to the tea party base, you will say, i won't spend all that money on government travel for me. he has a job to do, as part of the establishment of the republican party, say to these tea party folks coming in, i'm with you, hear you, all aut that agenda, cutting earmarks and pet projects and cutting spending. that's all we're talking about in washington. >> speaking of that, there is a government commissioncutting
7:10 am
the deficit that received a lot of criticism from republicans and democrats because it recommended cutting back on social security and medicare and a number of tax breaks and you say the white house was somewhat blindsided by this. >> i think they got some heads , it was late but some surprise it would go thi early. the feeling in the white house is let's not comment on this right now because if we go in one way or anothere will hurt the magic number of 14 commission members have to agree on a plan before congress can take it up otherwise this is an intellectual exercise. i think there was a little bit of surprise and want to float some controversial -- this is shock therapy in terms of government spending, and maybe theyill revise some of it before it actually comes up for a vote. >> is this the kind of thing that will force votes of reblicans an democrats to get togeth. this will call a lot of people's bluff. if you want to get serious and make painful choices in the budget. here are trillions of dollars of
7:11 am
ideas from raising taxes on gasoline to raising the age on social security. we're harpooning every whale in the sea, it was said and minnows, too. the reason it hasn't been done before is the politics are horrible. we will see how committed the white house and republicans are to makg painful choices if they really want to bring the debt down. >> everything we're hearing suggest the bush tax cuts will be extended. is that the likely scenario? >> a lot of that energy and momentum is for that, at least a period of two to three years and then get into the realm of larger deficit ideas in terms of bringing spending down. this is a really likely area for the president to sand side by side with speaker boehner and other republicans. >> all right. david gregory, thank you so much. >> you bet. let's get a check of the rest of the morning's top stories from ann curry at the newsdesk. >> good morning. we begin with a development overnight on the president's trip to seoul, srk, where he is

7:36 am
>> a two-term president who ran the cotry during katrina, 9/11 and wars in iraq and afghanistan and the financial meltdown and he's pointing the finger at kanye west and that incident as the worst moment in his presency. i asked kanye west to respond to president bush's remarks. >> as far as it being the worst moment of his presidency, i can't really speak to that. you know, but as his take, his explanation, i completely agree with it. i empathize totally. i felt like that the entire time that, you know, i was being, you know, held as a hero and everyone saying, i'm so happy you said that. i didn't like you before but now i like you because you saidhis and you sit there and you know, in your heart as a person, that to, in a moment of emotion to peg someone or call a name or peg someone as a racist is not -- it's just not right.
7:37 am
>> thereas great frustration with the response to hurricane katrina. there, we were standing there, it was just a few day, less than a week afterward. while most people expressed frustration, you did take it across the line and said, you made it a little more sinister, that the federal response to katrina was because of race. do you regret having said that now? >> i don't want to speak on the word regret, and i think a lot of things that happened in america period are because of race, just the way this country was built in the struggle we had to get into, you know, position, you know, through media, through social position, thrgh so many -- a way bigger conversation than that. but what i wanted to speak to with bush was just to say that i empaize with the idea of being pegged as a racist.
7:38 am
>> just play the tape, don't even listen this time. i want you to loo at his face when he is commenting about you. look at him. this is the most emotional he got during my entire 3 1/2 hour interview with him. what would you say to him if he would meet with you face to face, i'm not sure he would but if he would. >> i didn't need you guys to to the show me the tape to prompt my emotion. >> look at his face. wh would you say to him? >> pre-looking aggravate his face, i wanted to say something to him right after the fact, would say, i don't have too tv stuff with me, this is ality, the real thing going on. this is -- you know what i'm saying? i don't need all the jazz. i would say to -- can you be quiet for a second? i would tell george bush in my
7:39 am
moment of frustration, that i didn't have the grounds to call m a racist. >> you're sorry? >> yeah, i'm sorry for -- >> i think i get the point. >> i want to give it the exact perfect wording because everything that i say gets taken and drawn into headlines and i'm here to man up to different mistakes that i made and speak to the, you know, the moment when i pegd george bush as a racist. i came here to say that i made mistakes, that i've grown as a person, and that it's n as easy as boxing someone into a villain role or race role.
7:40 am
i did not have the information, enough information in that situation, to call him a racist. that might have been the emotion that i felt, but me being a rational, well thought out, empathetic human being and thinking about it after the fact, i wld have chosen dierent words. even in these times where i was considered to have done something so wrong, my motivation was from a good place, maybe mistimed, maybe not the right wording, not using or realizing the power of my words and the way they would stop the internet, but nonetheless, it's very pure and from a good place. >> it sounds to me, not to oversimplify it, what you're saying is we're human, we mak mistakes but we have to learn from our mistakes? >> yes. >> during the interview, kanye west also told me he empathized with president busbecause , too, talking about kanye, here, was called a racist when he

interrupted taylor swift at the 2009 mtv music awards. as we often do today, we rolled video of that moment during his answer. we'll show you his reaction in a moment. after that interview, kanye fired off several tweets including this one, quote, i really wonder if matt lauer thought that blank was cool to play the mtv clip while i was speaking about bush. here's what he was talking about. >> we're alluding to when you walked onto the stage and grabbed the mike from taylor swift, this wasn't a guy expressing his music preference, a guy making a statement of race, that beyonce was greater than taylor swift and you got accused of racism. >> it was so funny to me it could be a race thing, i was expressing my frustration fm years and years of seeing -- you know -- how am i supposed to talk if you're going to run this thing in the middle of while i'm
7:42 am
talking. >> it's under. u won't be hearing it. >> i'm hearing it while i try to talk. >> could you take the sound out. you said it wasn't a re thing. >> please don't let that haen. it's [ bleep ] ridiculous. >> it's something we do everyday, when a guest is talking aboutn incident or a location, we run video of that location or that incident. there was nothing improper about it, nothing unusual about it. >> right. very common. >> whatsoever. we should mention president bush was here wednesday and he said he appreciated west's apology. that's what all the hubbub is about. >> okay. doesn't seem like much but -- >> we look forward to kanye's return for a special live concert on the plaza, friday, november 26th, the day after thanksgiving. up next, pat tillman breaks her silce about her husband's death in afghastan six years ago. we'll talk to her exclusively right after this.

9:08 am
basics. i like hand wipes better than the gel. as you know, after a while, the gel, even though it's alcohol, it smears stuff around. the wipes wipe off the grime. litt things like tweezers and scissors are absolutely okay and can get through serity. i never go through the screening without socks on. i think the floor is loaded with bacteria and junk. a pair of travel socks or throw away stuff you can roll up side and stick in a favorite place. some are even disposab. band-aids. for a lot of pple who don't drink enough water, think of anti-i i do ri do re--ales andg to help you with constipation, the minimum basics. i never go anywhere without extra socks and something to wipe my hands. >> and someone in oshkosh, wisconsin asking how do i survive a flight with coughing

9:11 am
for road warriors like me. >> the easiest thing to do when traveling is you lose track of what you're munching on. i he an app on my iphone called lose it to document everything you eat. and if i have a chance before hand i pre-package my alnds, dried fruit, cheerios, whatever i know i want to eat. the biggest bugaboo is room service, i just want salmon and spinach, it comes swimmg in butter. i say grilled, minimal if anything and vegetables steamed. just munch your way through the day. ju get the children's burger and ask not for the happy whatever goes with it. just the burger, eat it with some non-fat milk or water. sustain yourself that way. but, boy, i tell you, you have to write it down. >> you have t sort of pre-think everything. >> pre-think. >> and plan. >> absolutely. good luck, karen.

9:19 am
our kids. >> that's right. >> the reason parents don't, is because they're thinking about wanting to protect their children. sohey feel li, even though they're worrying, they're covering it up and don't want to worry the kids and being really good parents. what they don't realize is, as the stu shows, kids have great radar d they really do know. parents are exhibiting stress in a ways they often don't realize, they're yelling more, have a shorter fuse, eating things, unable to consecrated and be real engaged and kids pick up on that. >> some of the way to help parents deal with this and help their kids cope, we need to own up to our own stress. >> correct. it's very common for adults to not realize how stressedhey are, yelling at people and eating or whatever and not sleeping and not realize it's because of stress. if you acknowledge that in this first place and own up to how it's playing out in your home. >> you say we need to recognize the empact on our kids?

9:21 am
is keep yourself. you are the model yourself. you cannot tell them things you are not doing because they will do what you do. finding your own coping mechanism and teaching them specific coping mechanism. what are other ways they can blow off stress, exercising, ing something active, talking to friends, talking to you, talking to a school psychologist, if need be. basicay, you want to teach them other ways to cope with stress and not do negative things because as they grow up, there will be other things that stress them. >> you need a plan as a family, to deal with this and avoid it in the future. >> the big thing about the plan is you have to communicate with your child. you think you're protecting them by not telling them about money worries. when they see you worried, they think not only money worries, it might be something even worse, maybe you're getting a divorce. you need to sit down and say, yeah, mom and dad, we are stressed out. we are worried about money, but i want you to understand we have a plan and we' going to go ahead and we're going to be

not -- it's just notight. >> there was great frustration with the response to hurricane katrina. there, we were standing there, it was just a few days, less than a week afterward while most people expressed frustration, you did take it across the line and said, you made it a little more sinister, that the federal response to katrina was because of race. do you regret having said that now? >> i don't want to speak on the word "regret,"nd i think a lot of things that happened in america period are because of race, just the way this country was built in the struggle we had to get into, you know, position, you know, through media, through social position, through gingivacation, so many -- a way bigger conversation than that. but what i wanted to speak to with bush was just to say that i empathize with the idea of being
9:39 am
pegged as a racist. >> tell me why you can eathize with it? >> it's the obvious reasons with the situation with the -- i'm not even saying the katrina disaster even compares to an award ow but it compares to the idea of the characters we have, these characters in life that are on this side of the tv that mean so much to the people, whether it's they connect it with music or because they're a president. >> let me make sure i let people understand you're aloluding to when you walked onto the stage with taylor swift andeople said this wasn't a guy expressing his musical preference, a guy saying beyonce was better than taylo swiftnd you got accused of racism. >> it was so funny to me it could be a race thing, i was expressing my frustration from years and years of seeing -- you know -- how am i supposed to
