court, there's merrick garland, and sri srinivasan who would be the first asian-american and hindu justice. the president also considered another federal appellate judge with sparkling credentials, california-based judge paul watford. the fight over the nomination already has begun. republicans are united. they will not hold a hearing regardless of who obama nominates saying that in the mightle of an election year, the decision should be made by the next president. now, if the president phenomenon natures garland who is, i mean, no liberal fire brand, it would signal he's hoping for some kind of compromise. garland is considered the best candidate that republicans could hope for from a democratic president. gayle? >> jan, thank you. cbs news will bring you a special report when the president makes his announcement. it is scheduled for 8:00 a.m. pacific time right here on cbs. the latest primary results have the front-runner celebrating and challenger heading home.
7:05 am

7:06 am
delegates to clinch the nomination. if not, trumpen ahis republican rivals, establishment and otherwise will have to fight it out at a contested convention. >> we're going to go forward. and we're going to win but more importantly, we're going to win for the country. >> reporter: donald trump celebrated big swing state victories tuesday night and paused to ponder the question that's vexed his owe points, why attacks against him don't appear to stick. >> my numbers went up. i don't understand it. nobody understands it. my numbers went up. >> reporter: trump won florida handily, typically that cements the republican's hold on the nomination. >> i want to congratulate donald trump on a big victory in florida. >> reporter: but it knocked marco rubio out of the race. >> the politics of resentment against other people will not just leave us a fractured party, they're going to leave us a fractured nation. >> reporter: he lost to trump by nearly 20 points. >> but after tonight it is clear while we are on the right side,
7:07 am
this year, we will not be on the winning side. >> reporter: john kasich long ignored on the campaign trail secured a crucial win at home in ohio. >> i labored in obscurity for so long. people counting me out. >> reporter:
7:08 am
7:09 am
nominees into trouble in the past. he is going to be someone that's hard to get traction against, more like say a justice stephen breyer or a sam alito, kind of in that mold. he's a respected jurist, someone who people would say, yes, that makes sense except that he's not this fire brand. he's not a diverse pick. for that reason, i think people on the left could be a little disappointed. >> jan, has he received republican support in his confirmation for court of appeals. >> his confirmation hearing in
7:10 am
1997 was not unanimous. so that led some to believe that some of these other contenders like a colleague of his on the d.c. circuit here, sri srinivasan, could be the pick because he was confirmed 97-0. and sri srinivasan would have been diversity. it's the first asian-american. he is considered more liberal than judge garland. the other thing going for judge garland is that he kang be seen as a compromise pick. he's 63 years old. he would be the oldest nominee in modern history. the president can make the case to republicans that he's appointing someone with ununassailable qualifications and, therefore, you know, he may not do as much damage. he wouldn't be around this long. >> thank you, jan crawford. our coverage continues on "cbs this morning." we'll bring you another special report when the president makes his actual announcement. it is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. eastern time, 8:00 pacific. >> also find coverage on cbsn
7:11 am
and tonight on the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. i'm charlie rose with norah o'donnell and gayle king. now where bothork. campaigns expect that sanders will do well. >> thanks, nancy. cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is with us. john kasich winning in ohio and denying trump of 66 delegates does that mean the republicans who oppose donald trump can stop him getting enough detinlegates before the qinconvention? >> they hope so. that requires them continuing to stop him along the line. the question whether senator cruz peels the votes away or kasich does, but it gives them a little hope. >> i know it's early in the morning and i apologize for making you do the math.
7:12 am
for john kasich to win the nomination, he would have to win 115% of the delegates? >> bring new states into the union and win those delegates. >> the strategy is to stop trump? >> yes and get to cleveland where the convention is held and have a convention fight. even in that strategy he has somebody in t o he has somebody in front of him, ted cruz. he'll be closer to trump. trump will have a strong argument at the convention which is likely to be i have more delegates than anybody else. even if he doesn't get to the magic number, he'll have more delegates. that's a strong argument. >> what do you make of marco rubio? by 8:13 he was in front of the camera saying i'm out. what did you make of his speech in he talked about fractured party, fractured nation. >> the speech was in the dark almost. that was content and the way it looked. he said there's no more hope and optimism in this race. that was a pretty extraordinary thing to say, that hope and optimism are gone from the race. he congratulated himself for not being angry and running his
7:13 am
campaign on anger. that's exactly what he was aiming at. >> where do his supporters go now, do you think? >> they probably go to kasich but some might also go to cruz as the way to stop donald trump. we'll have to see. but i think they probably go more to kasich but probably split to both. >> an interesting point in "new york times" by michael barabo. it masks a pro-foufound reality most americans don't like him or her. >> you go back to grover cleveland versus james d. blaine. two nominees who had big challenges facing them. we'll have to figure out how that goes. at the moment we have people who are not seen by the larger electorate as honest and trustworthy. in ohio, 30% of the republicans said they wouldn't vote for trump. these are candidates with issues. >> thank you, john. good to see you. in our next half hour, we'll

8:05 am
supreme court justice, particularly one to succeed justice scalia, one of the most influential jurists of our time. the men and women who sit on the supreme court are the final arbiters of american law . they safeguard our rights. they ensure that our system is one of laws. they're charged with the essential task of applying principles put to paper more than two centuries ago to some of the most challenging questions of our time. so this is not a responsibility that i take lightly. it is a decision that requires me to set aside short-term expediency and narrow politics so as to maintain faith with our founders and perhaps more importantly with future generations. that's why over the past several weeks i've done my best to set up a rigorous and comprehensive process. i've sought the advice of
8:06 am
republican and democratic members of congress. we have reached out to every member of the senate judiciary committee, to constitutional scholars, to advocacy groups, to bar associations representing an array of interests and opinions from all across the spectrum. and today, after completing this exhaustive process, i've made my decision. i've selected a nominee who is widely recognized not only as one of america's sharpest legal minds, but someone who brings to his work a spirit of decency, modesty, integrity, even-handedness and excellence. these qualities and his long commitment to public service have earned him the respect and admiration of leaders from both sides of the aisle. he will ultimately bring that same character to bear on the supreme court, an institution in
8:07 am
which he's uniquely prepared to serve immediately. today i am nominating chief judge merrick brian garland to join the supreme court. [ applause ] now, in law enforcement circles and in the legal community at large judge garland needs no introduction. but i'd like to take a minute to introduce merrick to the american people, whom he already so ably serves. he was born and raised in the land of lincoln, in my hometown of chicago, in my home state of illinois. his mother volunteered in the community. his father ran a small business out of their home. inheriting that work ethic, merrick became valedictorian of
8:08 am
his public high school. he earned a scholarship to harvard where he graduated summa cum laude and put himself through harvard law school by working at a tutor, by stocking shoes in a shoe store, and what is always a painful moment for any young man, by selling his comic book collection. been there. merrick graduated magna cum laude from harvard law and early years of his legal career bear the marks of excellence. he clerked for two of president eisenhower's appointees, legendary judge on the second circuit, judge harry friendly and supreme court justice william brennan. following his clerkships, merrick joined the highly regarded law firm with a practice focus ed on litigation and pro bono representation of disadvantaged americans. within four years he earned a
8:09 am
partnership. the dream of most lawyers. but in 1989, just months after that achievement, merrick made a highly unusual career decision. he walked away from a comfortable and lucrative law practice to return to public service. merrick accepted a low level judge as a federal prosecutor in president george h.w. bush's administration, took a 50% pay cut, traded in his elegant partner's office for a windowless closet that smelled of stale cigarette smoke. this was a time when crime here in washington reached epidemic proportions and he wanted to help. and he quickly made a name for himself going after corrupt politicians and violent criminals. his sterling record as a prosecutor led him to the justice department, where he oversaw some of the most significant prosecutions in the 1990s including overseeing every
8:10 am
aspect of the federal response to the oklahoma city bombing. in the aftermath of that act of terror, when 168 people, many of them small children, were murdered, merrick had one evening to say good-bye to his own young daughters before he boarded a plane to oklahoma city and he would remain there for weeks. he worked side by side with first responders, rescue workers, local and federal law enforcement. he led the investigation and supervised the prosecution that brought timothy mcveigh to justice. but perhaps most important is the way he did it. throughout the process, merrick took pains to do everything by the book. when people offered to turn over evidence voluntarily, he refused, taking the harder route of obtaining the proper subpoenas instead, because merrick would take no chances
8:11 am
that someone who murdered innocent americans might go free on a technicality. merrick also made a concerted effort to reach out to the victims and their families, updating them frequently on the case's progress. everywhere he went, he carried with him in his brief case the program from the memorial service with each of the victims' names inside. a constant searing reminder of why he had to succeed. judge garland has often referred to his work on the oklahoma city case as, and i quote, the most important thing i have ever done in my life. and through it all, he never lost touch with that community that he served. it is no surprise then that soon after his work in oklahoma city, merrick was nominated to what's often called the second highest court in the land, the d.c.
8:12 am
circuit court. during that process, during that confirmation process he earned overwhelming bipartisan praise from senators and legal experts alike. republican senator orrin hatch, who was then chairman of the senate judiciary committee supported his nomination. back then he said in all honesty, i would like to see one person come to this floor and say one reason why merrick garland does not deserve this position. he actually accused fellow senate republicans trying to obstruct merrick's confirmation of playing politics with judges. and he has since said that judge garland would be a consensus nominee for the supreme court, who would be very well supported by all sides and there would be no question merrick would be confirmed with bipartisan support. ultimately merrick was confirmed to the d.c. circuit.
8:13 am
the second highest court in the land with votes from a majority of democrats and a majority of republicans. three years ago he was elevated to chief judge. and in his 19 years on the d.c. circuit, judge garland has brought his trademark diligence, compassion, and unwavering regard for the rule of law to his work. on a circuit court known for strong minded judges on both ends of the spectrum, judge garland has earned a track record of building consensus as a thoughtful, fair minded judge who follows the law. he's shown a rare ability to bring together odd couples, assemble unlikely coalitions, persuade colleagues with ride ranging judicial philosophies to sign on to his opinions. and this record on the bench speaks, i believe, to judge garland's fundamental
8:14 am
temperament, his insistence that all views deserve a respectful hearing. his habit, to borrow a phrase from former justice john paul stevens of understanding before disagreeing, and then disagreeing without being disagreeable. and speaks to his ability to persuade, to respond to the concerns of others with sound arguments and airtight logic. as his former colleague on the d.c. circuit, and our current chief justice of the supreme court, john roberts, once said, anytime judge garland disagrees, you know you're in a difficult area. at the same time, chief judge garland is more than just a brilliant legal mind, he's someone who has a keen understanding that justice is about more than abstract legal theory, more than some footnote in a dusty case book. his life experience, his
8:15 am
experience in places like oklahoma city, informs his view that the law is more than an intellectual exercise. he understands the way law affects the daily reality of people's lives in a big, complicated democracy, and in rapidly changing times. and throughout his jurisprudence runs a common thread, a dedication of protecting the basic rights of every american, a conviction that in a democracy powerful voices must not be allow ed to drown out the voices of everyday americans. to find someone with such a long career of public service marked by complex and sensitive issues, to find someone who just about everyone, not only respects, but genuinely likes, that is rare. and it speaks to who merrick garland is, not just as a lawyer, but as a man. people respect the way he treats
8:16 am
others. his genuine courtesy and respect for his colleagues and those who come before his court. they admire his civic mindedness, mentoring clerks throughout their careers, urging them to serve their communities, setting his own example by tutoring a young student at a northeast d.c. elementary school for the past 18 years. they're moved by his deep devotion to his family. lynn, his wife of nearly 30 years, and their two daughters becky and jessica. as a family, they indulge their love of hiking and skiing and canoeing and their love of america by visiting our national parks. people respect merrick's deep and abiding passion for protecting our most basic constitutional rights. it is a passion i'm told that manifests itself at an early age, and one story is indicative
8:17 am
of this, notable. as valedictorian of the high school class, he had to deliver a commencement address. the other student speaker that day spoke first and unleashed a fiery critique of the vietnam war. fearing the controversy that might result, several parents decided to unplug the sound system and the rest of the student speech was muffled. and merrick didn't necessarily agree with the tone of his classmate's remarks, nor his choice of topic for that day, but stirred by the sight of a fellow student's voice being silenced, he tossed aside his prepared remarks and delivered instead on the spot a passionate and impromptu defense of our first amendment rights. the beginning of a life long career as a lawyer and a prosecutor and as a judge, devoted to protecting the rights of others. and he has done that work with
8:18 am
decency and humanity and common sense and a common touch. and i'm proud that he'll continue that work on our nation's highest court. i said i would take this process seriously and i did. i chose a serious man, an exemplary judge, merrick garland. over my seven years as president, in all my conversations with senators from both parties, in which i ask their views on qualified supreme court nominees, this includes the previous two seats that i had to fill, the one name that has come up repeatedly from republicans and democrats alike is merrick garland. i recognize that we have entered the political season or perhaps these days it never ends.
8:19 am
a political season that is even noisier and more volatile than usual. i know that republicans will point to democrats who made it hard for republican presidents to get their nominees confirmed. and they're not wrong about that. there has been politics involved in nominations in the past, although it should be pointed out that in each of those instances democrats ultimately confirmed a nominee put forward by a republican president. i also know that because of justice scalia's outside role on the court and in american law and the fact that americans are closely divided on a number of issues before the court it is tempting to make this confirmation process simply an extension of our divided politics. the squabbling that is going on in the news every day.
8:20 am
but to go down that path would be wrong. it would be a betrayal of our best traditions. and a betrayal of the vision of our founding documents. at a time when our politics are so polarized, at a time when norms and customs of political rhetoric and courtesy and comedy are so often treated like they're disposable, this is precisely the time when we should play it straight and treat the process of appointing a supreme court justice with the seriousness and care it deserves. because our supreme court really is unique. it is supposed to be above politics, it has to be, and it should stay that way. to suggest that someone is
8:21 am
qualified and respected as merrick garland doesn't even deserve a hearing, let alone an up or down vote to join an institution as important as our supreme court, when two-thirds of americans believe otherwise, that would be unprecedented. to suggest that someone who has served his country with honor and dignity, with a distinguished track record of delivering justice for the american people might be treated as one republican leader stated as a political pinata, that can't be right. tomorrow judge garland will travel to the hill to begin meeting with senators one on one. i simply ask republicans in the senate to give him a fair hearing. and then an up or down vote. if you don't, then it will not only be an abdication of the
8:22 am
senate's constitutional duty, it will be beyond repair. it will mean everything is subject to the most partisan of politics, everything. it will provoke an endless cycle of more tit for tat and make it increasingly possible for any president, democrat or republican, to carry out their constitutional function. the reputation of the supreme court will inevitably suffer. faith in our justice system will inevitably suffer. our democracy will ultimately suffer as well. i have fulfilled my constitutional duty. now it is time for the senate to
8:23 am
do theirs. presidents do not stop working in the final year of their term. neither should a senator. i know that tomorrow the senate will take a break and leave town on recess for two weeks. my earnest hope is that senators take that time to reflect on the importance of this process to our democracy. not what's expedient, not what's happening at the moment, what does this mean for our institutions, for our common life, the stakes, the consequences, the seriousness of the job we all swore an oath to do. and when they return, i hope that they'll act in a bipartisan fashion. i hope they're fair. that's all. i hope they are fair. as they did when they confirmed
8:24 am
merrick garland to the d.c. circuit. i ask that they confirm merrick garland now to the supreme court so that he can take his seat, in time, to fully participate in its work for the american people this fall. he is the right man for the job. he deserves to be confirmed. i could not be prouder of the work that he has already done on behalf of the american people. he deserves our thanks, and he deserves a fair hearing. and with that, i'd like to invite judge garland to say a few words. [ applause ]
8:25 am
>> thank you, mr. president. this is the greatest honor of my life other than lynn agreeing to marry me 28 years ago. it is also the greatest gift i've ever received, except and there is another caveat, the birth of our daughters jessie and becky. as my parents taught me by both words and deeds, a life of public service is as much a gift to the person who serves as it is to those he is serving. and for me there could be no higher public service than serving as a member of the united states supreme court. my family deserves much of the credit for the path that led me here. my grandparents left the pale of settlement at the border of russia and eastern europe in the early 1800s, fleeing
8:26 am
anti-semitism and hoping to make a better life for their children in america. they settled in the midwest, eventually making their way to chicago. there my father, who ran the smallest of small businesses from a room in our basement took me with him as he made the rounds to his customers, always impressing upon me the importance of hard work and fair dealing. there my mother headed the local pta and school board and directed a volunteer services agency, all the while instilling in my sisters and me the understanding that service to the community is a responsibility above all others. even now my sisters honor that example by serving the children of their communities. i know that my mother is watching this on television and crying her eyes out.
8:27 am
so are my sisters who have supported me in every step i have ever taken. i only wish that my father were here to see this today. i also wish that we hadn't taught my older daughter to be so adventurous that she would be hiking in the mountains out of cell service range when the president call ed. it was a sense of responsibility to serve the community instilled by my parents that led me to leave my law firm to become a line prosecutor in 1989. there one of my first assignments was to assist in the prosecution of a violent gang that had come down to the district from new york, took over a public housing project and terrorized the residents. the hardest job we face was persuading mothers and grandmothers that if they testified, we would be able to keep them safe and convict the
8:28 am
gang members. we succeeded only by convincing witnesses and victims that they could trust that the rule of law would prevail. years later when i went to oklahoma city to investigate the bombing of the federal building, i saw up close the devastation that can happen when someone abandons the justice system as a way of resolving grievances and instead takes matters into his own hands. once again, i saw the importance of assuring victims and families that the justice system could work. we promised that we would find the perpetrators, that we would bring them to justice, and that we would do it in a way that honored the constitution. the people of oklahoma city gave us their trust and we did everything we could to live up to it. trust that justice will be done in our courts without prejudice
8:29 am
or partisanship is what in a large part distinguishes this country from others. people must be confident that a judge's decisions are determined by the law, and only the law. for a judge to be worthy of such trust he or she must be faithful to the constitution and to the statutes passed by the congress. he or she must put aside his personal views or preferences and follow the law, not make it. fidelity to the constitution and the law has been the cornerstone of my professional life. and it is the hallmark of the kind of judge i have tried to be for the past 18 years. if the senate sees fit to confirm me to the position for which i have been nominated today, i promise to continue on that course. mr. president, it is a great
8:30 am
privilege to be nominated by a fellow chicagoan. i am grateful beyond words for the honor you have bestowed upon me. thank you. >> thank you. congratulations. >> good job. [ applause ] >> and there you have it, the president of the united states nominating -- nominating merrick garland for the position there. incredible speech by merrick garland. >> just as emotional sitting there, his family sitting in the front row. >> calling it the greatest hoppehop honor. let's bring in jann crawford. is it going to make it difficult for republicans to deny him a hearing? >> yes. i mean, the republicans are going to hold firm for a few months, but i think what you saw there, starting with those
8:31 am
remarks, by judge garland, it shows the emotion, such a human moment, so authentic and sincere and removed from the chaos and vitriol we see on the political campaign. the president is positioning the nominee as a reasonable person, reasonable pick who has unassailable qualifications, someone that everyone likes and respects, someone who as a prosecutor at oklahoma city bombing really considers how law affects people's lives. this is going to be a difficult choice for republicans, who have supported him in the past, as the president said, to object to. >> jan, i was impressed how he made his argument, the deliberations he had gone through, the significant of this nominee's record and then making a plea for a vote. >> that's correct. and, you know, you saw already, this system is one that everybody on both sides had told him time and time again over the years, merrick garland is someone republicans and democrats like and respect.
8:32 am
>> what, if anything, works against the judge in terms of his positions or past record, quickly in. >> i see nothing. just the timing and process. >> thank you, jan. our coverage will continue on our 24 hour digital network, and your local news will have more. and we'll have a complete wrap-up tonight on the cbs "evening news" with scott pelley. >> this has been a cbs news special report. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. cbs news, new york. the prince reportedly has several scheduled engagements the next few days. what do you think about that? >> i think the prince ought to be able to take a vacation.

8:34 am
others asking for is a consistent set of legislation across the country. six states allowed autonomous cars tested on the roads but the legislation is different in each state. some require special licenses and others require special equipment in the cars. the only way to get the cars better is test them on every road in the country. >> a robotic expert spoke at this hearing yesterday and said no question someone is going to die in this technology and these self-driving cars are absolutely not ready. >> right. >> what are the safety concerns at this point? >> definitely safety concerns and we just saw a google car hit a bus and only 2 miles an hour. nobody injured but there are mistakes going to be made. ultimately the potential of these are so great that is what people are looking for. mistakes made in the short term but long term the 2008 study shows all crashes involve some sort of human error. if you can get a self-driving car and eliminate a lot of of those errors and save lives on the road.
8:35 am
>> she testified that hackers can get into the system. >> a lot of vulnerabilities in these cars because they are early and still being tested. gps is very easy to spoof. you can easily convince a car that -- these cars -- that they can fall back on. part of the thing the researchers need to get into and this is early technology and a lot of research and a lot of testing needs to come. >> you say there is financial benefits to self-driving cars. how so? >> if you're looking at a company like uber or lift where they are taking people from one place to the other they have to have a lot of overhead in terms of drivers and benefit and things like that and if you get rid of the drivers a lot of cost savings for them. for individuals you can see cars no longer needing insurance because they will not crash and you don't have to pay for insurance and they can be a lot lighter a lighter. the long-term benefits are compelling. >> you see it happening when? >> putting my head on a swivel

relationship. she is the author of "untangled guiding girls into adulthood." lisa, welcome to studio 57. >> thank you for having me back. >> yes. what a great article. i like what you say that good fights happen when teenagers consider arguments from both sides and bad fights happen when they don't. so how can conflict with teens be a good thing? >> well, what we see is conflict comes with the territory so you have to accept it's going to happen. and what we know is that it can become the training ground for helping them see through multiple perspectives. that is what we want our teenagers to be able to do. when we look at conflict, we actually see there is four different types, fell into categories. three are not so good and one that is much better. there is attacking where everybody gets ugly. there is withdrawing, where people refuse to engage. there is complying where somebody gives in to make it stop. those are the three not so good ones. the last one is problem solving

where people say here is how you see it and i see it and how can we come to a better solution. >> this is good with when you're outlining and there is this and that but in the heat of the battle, are you mad. >> absolutely. >> you say something and you're off to the races. how do we tamp that down on both sides? >> i think oveften, we can't. you need to let everybody separate and cool off and i think it's incumbent on the parent to come back and say i don't like the way that went down. that got ugly and i'm sorry. here is where i'm coming from and can you walk me through where you're coming from? it won't and can't happen every time but we know it can be valuable. >> i love saying to your teenager can you walk me through how you feel? >> i know! they might roll their eyes! >> where are you coming from? >> right! >> i would say i want to hear your opinion but at the end of the day, i'm going to make the

call. democracy. >> gayle is the boss. >> but even to say that -- >> no, no. i'm saying gayle is a great mom and has great kids, right. >> but somebody has to make the call. >> it's at the end of the day and the parents' job to have the rules. you say i want to hear your opinion, a lot of parents aren't getting there. what we see is when parents can get there, things go better. >> i thought you said, too, teenagers who cannot resolve arguments at home often have similar troubles in their friendships and love lives. >> yes. i think the way we have to think before bit, home is a training ground and how we conduct our relationships at home spill over into hour teenagers develop relationships elsewhere. >> what happens if your terge goes into the rom and slams the door? >> that is often the beginning after fight and i think we all want to get past the slammed door. i think that is an impasse and we need a new way in. i think to let things settle down and say when you're ready to talk, i'm ready to talk. >> you say don't you ever slam the door again in my house? >> absolutely. >> you say fighting is

inevitable. how do you know when it's a problem and somebody raised an interesting question to me recently. why should i care what they think? >> that's interesting. >> cue the chris licht cam! why should we care what they say? >> oh, no. you did not say that, chris! >> address that one. there are parents who feel that way. >> there are. what we know from the research, parents who are willing to walk around in their teenager's mental shoes, get teenagers who are willing to walk around in the parents' mental shoes. when is it a problem? great researchers study the relationship and they have a terrific quote which is disagreement is common, serious conflict is not. so if you are getting knock down and drag out all the time and never any productive outcome and you're jumping on a kid's back as shown in the clip, probably things are not going well and that is probably when support is in order. >> one last question. what is it they want? >> what is it they want? you know, i think at any given
8:49 am
moment, it could be any variety of things. i think what is really hard it's hard for teenagers to maintain -- >> just someone off camera just said, what is it they want, in the case of teenage boys, what they want, right? >> probably not what they are talking about. >> thank you. >> just getting commentary. >> you're watching "cbs this morning." we will be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,
