indianapolis to preview. good morning. >> good morning. hillary clinton's campaign is certainly feeling the biden buzz. last night she spoke to more than 100 dnc members pledging their support and her staff is committing the next two days to try to secure commitments. hillary clinton's campaign is sending this form obtained by cbs newss to top democrats asking them to pledge their support at next summer's convention. asking them to commit now is one way of shutting out competitors like bernie sanders and o'malley or vice president joe biden. biden told party leaders the death of his son beau has left him torn. in audio obtained by cnn, he said he doesn't know if he or his family have the emotional fuel to tour a campaign. >> i have to be able to commit to all of you that i would be
7:09 am
able to give my whole heart and my whole soul, and right now, both are pretty well banged up. >> reporter: the magnifying glass on biden's every move has added a twist of intrigue to dnc members where they say they have yet to settle on a candidate. >> until you make a commitment, until everyone has had a chance to put their hat in the ring and be vetted, we'll wait. >> they show the front-runner dropping ten points in the last ten months. josh alcorn has been holding small information sessions but he said interest is climbing. >> when draft biden started in march, there were 2,000 on the e-mail list. when i came on board, we there

7:13 am
ignorant. >> john dickerson is with us. good morning, john. >> good morning. >> is that a little -- >> it's a little early for hair puns. they're a shear disaster. the numbers bring up basically the argument that he could never win in a general election because his negatives are too high and there are enough who wouldn't vote for him. we should note in the quinnipiac roll on trustworthiness, that's the exact same problem hillary clinton has. >> some have tried to take him on directly, some have tried to ignore him, and neither strategy seems to be working. >> it doesn't. those who have taken him on directly as he's liked to point out repeatedly whether it's rick perry or lindsey graham, their
7:14 am
numbers have gone in the wrong direction. so nobody's going to outtrump trump in taking him on. you could imagine a situation where a rival makes a case for himself using trump as a kind of foil, but no one has done that yet. >> she uses the words "terrorists" and "republicans" in the same sentence where they share similar views on women, what was she doing there? was that going to backfire? >> that's what she wants? hillary clinton challenges that she's running against herself, the special e-mail server she set up for herself and disclosure after disclosure explaining exactly what she was up to with that private e-mail system. that's no good for her. what she needs do is get engaged a fight with someone and better to have a fight with republicans, so she's picking those fights and hoping that

7:34 am
a condom in front of a half naked girl wanting to have sex with him and then stopping make any sense? >> reporter: while he accused him of lying. >> as difficult as it might be to expect, [ bleep ] deliberately and intentionally lied to you under oath. >> reporter: carney sought to shift some of the blame to the elite boarding school both attended where the senior tradition called senior salute where the senior classmen met younger female students for sex. >> they failed in their attitude toward senior salute. >> reporter: labrie asked the girl out on senior salute and said it almost led to sex but he then changed his mind. >> i thought to myself maybe we should. do this. it wouldn't have been a good move to have sex with this girl. >> reporter: but the girl who is now 16 testified earlier that
7:35 am
labrie had assaulted her after she told him no three times. >> i was raped. i was violated in so many ways. >> reporter: carney said e-mails between the two showed the girl was willing and consented to sex. >> the evidence is overwhelming on those indictments that labrie is not guilty. >> reporter: but the e-mails he cement to his classmates showed he had the girl in his sights for months and had, quote, planned to slay her before graduation. >> reporter: labrie is facing nine charges in all. some of those are felonies, and if he's convicted he could spend years in prison. anthony? >> anna, thanks. cbs news legal expert rikki klieman prosecuted sexual assault cases. she also defended rape suspects
7:36 am
in court. good morning. >> good morning. >> there seem to be so many questions. first dirksd they have sex at all and then the question. the girl sent e-mails after the fact that were very friendly to this man. how does the jury sort all of this out? >> the jury sorts it out by finding some way to find order. it usually comes from the foreperson. so they have nine countses to go through. so the real question is do they go through them count by count which almost seems counter-productive, even though that's the usual way. the real question is do they decide they had sexual intercourse or sexual penetration. if so, was it consensual. those are the two big questions. in order to do that, they have to assess the credibility of the alleged victim and the defendant against each other. >> okay. you have prosecuted. you have done so many of these cases. sometimes it comes down to a
7:37 am
subjective view, right? what does it mean? the jury is nine men and three women? >> i think that's the question of the day. here you have the stereotype is that women will support her and the men will support him. having prosecuting and defended these cases, i think nothing could be furtherer from the truth. you often find women who will say it wouldn't have been me. i wouldn't have found myself in that position. >> women can be tougher. >> they can be. men may be able to say just the opposite, i'm not supports him because i know what i was like when wi us 18. so the stereotypes go out the window. i'm a firm believer. it comes about by consensus. if you look at the physical evidence, you look at the e-mails, all of those things can support or detract from each of them. so if i'm a lawyer, what do i want in there. i want one juror if i'm a
7:38 am
defense lawyer to be able to say the proof is on the government beyond a reasonable doubt. that's where the burden is. >> can you tell us what your personal opinion is? what do you think happens? >> i don't know what happens. i mean, there's a compromised verdict here. if they believed there was penetration, they would go for statutory penetration. if they believe it was against her will and there was no consent, they go for the whole thing. remember, there are other charges here, but ultimately in this case, if he faces prison time for the sexual assault that's felonious, if he faces prison time, we're talking double digits. if he faces time for statutory rape, it is a misdemeanor in new hampshire. and as a misdemeanor, he does not have to register as a sexual defender. the distinction is really huge. his lawyer doesn't know that. >> and his lawyer? >> jay carney is a very good
7:39 am
lawyer. issue known him for many years. he was the lawyer for whitey bulger. nonetheless, he has bad facts. the government has bad facts. this is a tough, tough deliberation. >> thank you. a lonely fight against same-sex marriage is winning support. >> when you have that much conviction, it doesn't matter what they do to you, "stand your ground." >> why some people are rally behind an official who's standing up to the supreme court. that's next. and if you're heading off to work, set your dvr so you can watch us any time. we'll be right back.

7:45 am
decision, her appeal was denied on wednesday. >> he shas no basis at this point in which not to be complying with the order of the court to issue marriage licenses. she can seek to have review. i think it's very unlikely that the supreme court is going to intervene in any way to allow her to not issue licenses. >> davis has said she won't resign. she can only be removed if the state legislature impeaches her. her supporters rallied for her over the weekend. >> no matter what, "stand your ground." >> reporter: but those waiting to get married say justice delayed, justice denied. >> they don't like gay people and they won't let them get married. they'll burn the earth. coming up, is it real or is it fake?
