7:37 am
who really showed the nexus to this boy as opposed to his older brother who he says he was under the influence of. but most important is what you found as the way this prosecution is ending last week and today is they're going through the autopsies of the three people who were killed. the jury was moved to tears. people had to look away couldn't look at the photos. the description of the injuries of victim number one was horrific, and i will guarantee you victim number three is going to be that little boy, martin richards. that will be today. >> that ends very strong. what are the chances you think he will take the starngsdnd, dzhokhar tsarnaev. >> he will not take the stand. >> what does he have to lose? >> he may in the penalty class. judy clark began in her opening by saying he did it. it was him. there's no point in prolongs that controversy. she wants to move on and do this
7:38 am
at the penalty phase. when you say what does he have to lose, you ask the normal person's question. you ask the viewers' question. if he says he did it why won't he testify. the reason he won't testify from the lawyer's point of view is he'll get devastated in cross-examination. it's going to be just something that the prosecutors are longing for. beyond that fact what if during the point of cross-examination, whether it's now or whether it's later, at some point he says i'd really like for you to put me to death, i want to join my brother in martyrdom. so if you're the defense lawyers, you do not want him on the witness stand. >> there was a poll last week that showed 27% of bostonians want him to be put to death. so that meaning an overwhelming majority don't want that. do you think that may -- you know that's judy clark's strategy, just to get him life

8:16 am
>> reporter: kennedy's former colleagues from both parties recalled that passion. john mccain said that despite repeated rounds of verbal combat, the two remained friends because they work eded at it, like the time kennedy gave his 6-year-old son the best birthday party ever. >> we took him out to a coast guard cutter. we had a tour of the entire boston harbor for my son jim. three different birthday cakes, three times they song happy birthday to him. >> reporter: president obama served in the senate with ted kennedy and he will be the keynote speaker here in a matter of minutes and this institute will open to the public tomorrow. >> chip, i know you covered him on capitol hill for many years. what a great thing to have that replica of the senate for students to pretend like they are lawmakers. >> we encourage active participation, so important. talk about ted kennedy for the

8:34 am
is announcing the new lincoln continental concept car. first on "cbs this morning," ford's ceo mark fields is here to talk about lincoln and much more. talk about this idea of the new lincoln concept car. >> you know as a company, we have a real commitment to lincoln as a luxury brand with experience to match. we laid out a plan. we have a lot of momentum. our sales were up last year more than the industry. they're up again this year. and at that plan we announced four cars in four years back in 2012. and the fourth car is a full-size sedan and we're introducing the lincoln continental concept which really signified for us the future. quiet luxury. it's around elegance effortless power and it's around an environmental that's serene and relaxing. almost a place to chill. >> i thought what was so interesting is luxury cars are a smaller part of your of the
8:35 am
industry profits. so it's really important for us to be there. and we've done i think, a good job growing the ford brand over the last six seven years. so when our customers are ready, if and when they're ready to purchase a luxury car, we want to be there for him. >> she looks very pretty in wanton needs from obviously u.s. consumers and chinese consumers. and interestingly, there's a lot
8:36 am
more similarities than differences. one of the differences, though, is in china, this full-size luxury sedan, most people that own it that is correct i're chauffeured in it. so there we spend a lot of time on the back seat of the vehicle and giving them amenities and this quiet luxury experience. >> let's talk about taking over as ceo of a giant automaker. what's the biggest challenge for you? where do you have to take this company? >> i think our biggest opportunity is to accelerate our one ford plant which we've had in place in the last six, seven years. we've been growing the business. a huge opportunity for us is around innovation and driving innovation in every part of our business and we strongly believe that the industry is at an inflection point with a lot of the technology that's available for us today. >> more than technology than being able to abscess the internet and all that. >> it's much more. for example, we're thinking of ous as a mobility company and auto company because we're looking at trends in the
8:37 am
marketplace and societal trends and you look at the growth of mega cities. cities with ten or more vehicles. you look at the growth of the global middle class, which is expected to double in the next 15 years, and, of course the first thing you want to do is buy a car. so we want to provide mobility issues for consumers, some some of the society problems an also at the same time help complement our business. >> what does that mean mobility solutions. >> what does that mean? >> when you think about that ford's smart mobility is around using innovation and allowing us to take to next level things like autonomous vehicles mobility, card sharing, ride sharing, i thinks around the cold customer experience p. and we're actually conducting 25 experiments around the world to learn because our overall goal is to make mobility and etan muss vehicles and connect theed cars
8:38 am
available to everybody like henry ford. >> it's so fascinating. >> after 15 years hue long will it take before the electric cars are a predominance of the car business? >> well, it will be a percentage. obviously a lot of that is dependent on customer acceptance of the new technology the electrified technology. part of it is based on the cost of a gallon of gas. clearly our approach as a business at ford is to bribe what we call the power of choice. so we have the widest array of whether it's gas engines, hybrids, conventional hybrids, plug-in hybrids, or full battery electrical vehicles. i can't give you an exact figure. it will be part of the landscape but it would depend on a lot of factors. >> i would imagine you get a big kick out of the matt mcconaughey commercials. when you first heard him say it's not about hugging trees, did you think it was hilarious?
8:39 am
>> i thought it was fantastic. we wanted to be differentiating. we realize there are a lot of luxury brands out there. we're one of the smallest ones. >> have they made a big difference in sales? >> there's a new markets metric over how many times your commercial is spoofed. >> they got spoofed a lot which is incredible and fun. great to have you here. >> thank you, mark fields. go further. do you spend enough time with your kids -- that's their slogan -- jennifer is in studio 57. ahead, a new study why working moms can stop feeli

8:42 am
8:43 am
working parents alert. a surprising new study this morning shows spending more time with your kids does not always lead to better behavior health or grades. but that is not an endorsement for hands-off parents. >> right. >> jennifer is the author of "all joy and no fun: the paradox of modern parenting." she's also a contributor to "parent" magazine. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> explain think.
8:44 am
why does more time not translate to better behaved kids? >> i can't tell you why, but it does. they found no material differences. not in emotional well being, not in behaviors, not in academic performance. it didn't matter what. only a slight statistical difference in adolescents, meaning if mom spent more time, they wouldn't drink as much. >> so working moms, i think, who feel really guilty about this are having a giant sigh of relief. is one of the reminders that quality is more important than quantity? >> i think that's most certainly a reminder. if you don't read with your kid, watch tv, have dinner with your kid seems to make a material difference. can i point one thing out? i haven't been surprised about this. we only have worried about this question since women started working. since women started working we've been spending more time with our kids not less.
8:45 am
