7:08 am
presidential race is already intensifying. democratic frontrunner hillary clinton takes her campaign to new hampshire today. where republican rivals are already on the attack against her record. nbc's andrea mitchell is in new hampshire for us. good morning to you. >> reporter: hi good morning. hillary clinton comes here today trying to repeat her low key campaign style in iowa, but republicans got her first and they gave her a very unpleasant welcome. republicans who are here all weekend made clinton their prime target. >> starting to worry that when hillary clinton travels there's going to be need to be two planes. one for her and her entourage and one for her baggage. >> reporter: this morning, clinton's first chance to respond. she will comment on the economy, and plus meetings with local and state politicians as she did in iowa. photographed there by the campaign photographer. so far, few specifics fuelling criticism from republicans.
7:09 am
>> she talks about meeting real voters but in the one instance when she walks in the store when there's a real opportunity in chipotle, she remains in silence and the disguise. >> reporter: it was an unscripted moment in 2008 that helped her connect to voters. >> i had so many opportunities from this country. i don't want to see us fall backwards. >> reporter: this time around, voters here are hoping to see more moments like that one. >> i think she's starting right this time. i think she should work on being more relaxed. more open. listening to people. >> reporter: new hampshire has been very friendly territory for both clintons in the past. and while republicans are barely organized here clinton has hired a full staff trying to show new hampshire voters she is taking nothing for granted. >> andrea mitchell in new hampshire, thank you. dana perino served as press secretary for george w. bush and
7:10 am
she's co-host of "the five." she is the author of a new book pack called "and the good news is." good to see you. >> good to see you again. >> we have a little history. >> at the white house. >> we do. we'll talk about the new book but let's talk you think that's a blessing or a curse? >> when you started the show with andrea mitchell's segment, she was called the front runner. she's not the front runner. she's the only runner on the democratic side. a lot of benefits and challenges come with that. she is the only person all the republicans who are running, if they're trying to show a contrast, she is the only one to show a contrast against. >> we saw over the weekend a bunch of republican would-be candidates up in new hampshire taking their shots at hillary. is that the question question right now for republicans, who has the juice to take her on. >> i think for some republican voters, yes, but there's a lot of different republican voters. and they're all across the
7:11 am
country. they're wanting to know a couple things. some people might say, who can win, but also, who's going to represent me well? who's going to get the country back on track? the country is about 75% or so, according to some polls, think that the country is on the wrong track. they're wanting to hear, what are the policies and positions you'll have? plus, remember, every presidential election is about character, trust, and honesty. i do think one of the reasons hillary clinton decided to go forward in april and announce her candidacy is they saw her numbers in that key area slipping in key states like ohio, florida, colorado, and iowa. >> you do have a division in the republican party, though, shorthanded as the establishment side of the party versus the conservative side of the party. it's a conservative article of faith right now. ted cruz is one who's a proponent of this argument that the reason republicans aren't winning national elections is because they do not nominate a candidate who's conservative enough. do you agree? >> that's how he's going to define himself. i'm excited about, at this time, as an observer, i'm not part of
7:12 am
a campaign. that's great and new for me. looking across the field, i think the field in 2016 is a lot stronger than it was in 2012. there are stark differences and contrasts. there are men of substance. there's also carly fiorina. >> you worked for former president george w. bush. his brother looks to be gearing up for a race. as you well know, in 2008, the last bush name would have been a nonstarter. do you think people's views have softened about the bush presidency? >> maybe for some in a little way because time heals a little bit. a bush/clinton race in 2016 would give everyone flashbacks. >> in a good way? >> for some. but not necessarily all. i think that jeb bush knows that he goes into this with eyes wide open. he understands his name i.d. is both a benefit and a drawback. so he has a lot of hurdles he's going to have to clear. if he can clear those and earn people's trust, then he could go the distance.
7:13 am
>> the book is about you and your unlikely rise. sort of small-town roots all the way to the podium at the white house. it's called "and the good news is." so what's the good news about politics right now? >> i think when people read this book, you'll actually end up with a warmer feeling about washington and public service because, for one, i get asked all the time, how did somebody like you end up in a place like that? i grew up in the west. i had no political connections. some people think that i either knew the bushes or the cheneys and that's how i got the job. that wasn't how it was. when you and i met and you were working for nbc and i was the deputy press secretary, i was quite happy being in that role. but then things happened. when tony snow moved on and unfortunately then later passed away after his battle with cancer, i just happened to be the right press secretary at the right time. now at fox news, it's a new career transition for me, where for the first time in my life, i'm speaking for myself. i don't speak for anybody else. so i wrote this book to try to get people an understanding that you don't have to have gone to

8:37 am
the single life and, yes that, works. first this is "today" on nbc.
8:38 am
8:39 am
we are back now. it's 8:38 with an unprecedented shift in 2014 for the first time singles outnumbered married people in the u.s. kate bullock wrote about it in the atlantic. she's now following that up with a book called "spinster." first we asked a few women what the term spinster means to them. >> when i hear the term spinster i think of the little old lady who's alone living in that house at the end of the street with 50 cats and she's by herself and lonely and sad. she's a little scary. >> i think a woman who's independent and she doesn't need a man to survive. >> when i was growing up the image of spinster i had was a
8:40 am
school teacher from little house on the prairie in a black victorian dress who was not always happy and sometimes bitter with her loss in life. >> kate bullock, good morning to you. starting a conversation again. spinster is not a word as we just saw that most people associate with positive things. are you trying to kind of reclaim it in this book? >> i am. i think that spinster is an excellent way to broadcast our conflicted attitudes around women. and a way to think about how we can rethink the single woman experience. >> this book takes your column in a next step. i guess it sort of talks about a single life you choose. >> exactly. i wanted to show the state many women avoid of being alone and childless that many women have thrived past and present. amazing things can happen when
8:41 am
people are alone. >> but there's so much pressure to pursue that course. you write it in the book. whom to marry and when will it happen those two questions define every woman's existence and govern her until the answers are even nobody and never. some women can say maybe i'll have relationships, maybe i just won't get married. >> i think society is catching up. it's hard to bring attitudes up to date with demographic shifts. it always takes awhile where we still have the attitudes that our parents and grandparents dealt with. we were dealing with a different reality on the ground. but right now we have more unmarried women than ever been. it's changing the conversation. >> there's a distinction to be made there. is this a question of women saying i don't want to be in any relationship or that i don't want to be married? >> it's a lot of things. i've only talked to a handful of
8:42 am
people who say i never want to get married. that's not for me. mostly it's about women who are really excited about their careers or their educational pursuits and keep pushing marriage off but still feel like something's wrong with them. or feel like they're alone in that decision. >> and generationally it also must make a real difference. >> yes. absolutely. i see that women of my generation who they're the ones who -- it's been -- we tend to grow up thinking we'll get married some day because that's what people do. then we hit our mid-30s and go through this paradigm shift like wait a minute i love my life. >> i have to say, you have a part in the book where you're talking about walking down the street in the middle of the night eating a big mac going home. i was like i remember those days. those were good days. by the way we asked folks to weigh in in the orange room and asked them whether or not they thought being married was easier
8:43 am
than being single. and 59% said no. actually that being single was harder. wait. is it easier for a woman to be married than single? no. 59%. it's a good decision to have and one that will continue online. >> thanks so much. coming up the joys and stresses of getting into college. we're with students as they learn the big news. but first this is "today" on

8:45. we're back now with something you might be experiencing if you have a high school senior in the family 37. >> yes. the exhilarating anxiety inducing time which is the college admissions season. jenna is back with that story. >> when we applied it was all about the envelope. now decisions are sent by e-mail. but what hasn't changed, the nerve-racking process. and for the last four months we followed along with a group of
8:46 am
students from one new york city school as they applied. >> let's go seniors let's go! >> reporter: it's an annual tradition in washington heights. a trip to the post office to send off college applications. an emotional journey for many of these students. like 17-year-old erica cabrera who has big dreams. when you were younger how'd your parents talk about college to you? >> since i was younger, my mom always told me i don't want you to be like me. she works at a gasoline station. she wakes up at 5:00 in e the morning and she goes off to work. that was the motivation for me my mother telling me to go to college. >> reporter: erica attends wheels where most are first generation college applicants. she rides the subway every day for over an hour each way hoping her dedication will pay off with acceptance to her dream school. >> i couldn't help it but to fall in love so hopefully i get
8:47 am
accepted. >> reporter: i had classmate byron garcia also has big plans. >> what makes me nervous is not getting in into a college. the worst thing is getting a denial from both of them. >> reporter: wheels is a school that stresses education and not just abo getting in. >> being eligible for higher education and truly being ready are two different things. >> reporter: the founder of a group called blue engine sends mentors to work with students at schools like wheels. he calls it his army of peer mentors. >> the students and teachers in blue engine are working so closely to make sure what students have when they go they're going to have what they need launched into higher education. >> reporter: blue engine representatives tutors students
8:48 am
helps with financial aid forms, and perhaps most important for all, they're there for the kids after they've graduated serving as a sounding board. with the help of blue engine mentors, three months after byron mailed in his application, he finds out. >> i got into university at buffalo, university at albany and wait listed at bart college. i'm planning to go to university at buffalo. >> reporter: now it's time for decisions and plans. on a journey that started with a symbolic three-block walk. getting parents teachers mentors, and a neighborhood a reason to celebrate. are you proud? >> yes. >> reporter: blue engine mentors so proud too. >> byron has come a long way. i'm just extremely happy that he's here. i love him to death and i'm so excited for hi
8:49 am
>> reporter: wheels principal brett kimmel says it's a message of hope for the kids to follow. why is it so important we celebrate these kids applying to college. >> many of them will say i've been waiting for this for years. we saw in ninth grade the seniors do it and we were ready to do it. it becomes inspirational that way. >> reporter: a step towards the future. >> congratulations, class of 2015. >> reporter: and what about erica cabrera? >> touch my heart right now. >> reporter: on the day she checks the dartmouth website, her mom is by he. two shining stars leading the >> i must be hormonal too. i don't know. >> being pregnant and watching these amazing kids is so
8:50 am
terrific. but erica is going to dartmouth, it was her first choice. she traveled almost an hour and a half one way to get to school because this school wheels is so terrific. all the support systems that got them to where they're going is incredible. >> follow them. keep following them find out how they do. >> that touched my heart. you touched our hearts. thank you. up next, the best of broadway. a live performance from the cast of "on the town" in our studio. but first this is "today" on

9:03 am
but we know she had a strong message last night. take a look at her beautiful speech. >> for many years i was her constant companion. and i witnessed a young girl with very few friends become a young woman with many learning to stand up for herself and the things she believes in. like many of you out there tonight with children of your own i am a very proud mom. >> and taylor swift, a very proud daughter there. i mean it was so sweet. the audience reaction, reaction on social media. you know, we don't often want to bring our parents into our world. we're so protective of them. and she shared her story her mother's struggle. her mother slept in the car and waited on her for auditions and was her best friend. now she's standing there with her mother somebody who will pull through this. and our prayers and thoughts are with them. >> i don't think there was a dry
9:04 am
eye. adorable speech. you see that bond so close. here's an interesting op-ed that caught our eye. i think you probably all know what i'm talking about if you are a parent of young kids. the sarl hey kids look at me when we're talking. the author says when she shakes hands with young people, they have an aversion to looking at him in the eye. why is this? well, the theory is that kids obviously spending way too much time looking into their screens that they start to lose the ability to read non-verbal communication. things you start learning when you're an infant. you start mimicking what they do. but he says that kids as they're getting older all they're doing is staring at their screens. they're losing the ability to read people's non-verbal signals. and therefore are not having those -- the one-on-one interactions that you normally have. and according to the article i was reading, apparently the kaiser family foundation says
9:05 am
the amount of time kids are spending on devices under the age of 8 tripled from five minutes a day in 2011 to fifteen minutes in 2013. and they say for teenagers, kids are spending on average seven and a half hours a day on their devices. seven that's more than they're sleeping in most cases. >> i mean it may very well be the devices, but it's also correction. you know i have three nieces and a nephew they're like my kids. we go everywhere together and when we are that he a restaurant, i make them look up and order their food. you can't just look -- i'm not going to order it for you. you want chicken nuggets, i'm not going to tell the waitress or server you have to look at them. >> can i text you, cameron, to get me chicken nuggets. >> order number 1 with or without hot sauce. >> that's a battle. >> this makes me feel like an old guy. those darn kids on their devices. >> but i'm sure your parent or someone around you said give a firm handshake.
9:06 am
>> right. >> look a person in the eye. >> yeah. >> so i don't know. i mean i just think it's correcting the behavior that may not be as prominent when we were kids. >> it is. it's the way the kids relate to people is through their devices instead of face to face. >> how often do you hear kids even really having a real conversation? they'll be in the same room texting each other back and forth. >> that's what al says and other people, guess where they're learning it though? from parents. they keep their work phone on. >> not good role models. >> it's not that we've all become -- it's not being bad or good we've become tech obsessed. i look every day to see when my iwatch is going to be shipped. trust me, i'm, working on that. >> do we have a parenting app that will raise the kids? >> put a picture of the kids. >> we have a show called "super nani." >> bring her in. >> bring in things that are

that can lead to a stroke from a blood clot. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. hey, well i'm glad we got together. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. tell me about it. let's see, golf clinic, or blood clinic? ooh, that's a tough one. not this time. not with xarelto®. anything else? i'll have another arnold palmer. ok. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking xarelto® you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®
9:40 am
watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve, or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. you may be able to get up to 12 months at no cost. now at chili's new top shelf ranchero chicken tacos. stop in for lunch and tap, swipe, and go. chili's. fresh is happening now. i did it... do it...take the nature's bounty hair, skin and nails challenge. if your hair, skin and nails don't look more beautiful, we'll give you your money back. i did it...and i feel beautiful.
