103-Year-Old Woman Vows To Stay Alive Long Enough To Vote Against Donald Trump

In an interview published last Friday, a 103-year-old woman told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that she “must live” long enough to vote for Hillary Clinton.

Amanpour spoke to the woman, Ruline Steininger, who lives in Iowa, about Clinton’s candidacy. Steininger, who was born seven years before women even had the right to vote, campaigned for Clinton before the Iowa caucuses.

The Iowa caucus turned out such a close result between Clinton and Bernie Sanders that the voters Steininger may have swayed to the Clinton camp could have decided the election. You never know, and it certainly is possible.

Amanpour introduced Steininger’s dramatic lifespan.

“Imagine living through 2 World Wars, the Depression, a man on the moon, cures for polio and smallpox, 9/11, the first black American president, and the digital revolution,” she said. “That is the amazing 103-year lifespan of Ruline Steininger.”

“When I reached her at her care home,” Amanpour went on, “She told me that she’s desperate to stick around long enough for the first female American president.”

3. Go Girl!

That lady has seen a thing or two, Hoover creating Hooverville shanty towns with the old trickle down nonsense and FDR putting people back to work, realizing a rising tide lifts all boats.

I hope this intrepid centenarian lady does cast one more vote against that dangerous charlatan/clown.

4. If my grandmother was still alive today she would be 101,

but she died a few days before her 95 birthday. That's still a good long time live. It is nice this woman cares about seeing Hillary elected. I hope she gets her wish.

6. I love Ruline.

 

She looked great at the Iowa caucus.

Who can turn the world on with her smile?

Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?

Well it's you girl, and you should know it

With each glance and every little movement you show it

Love is all around, no need to waste it

You can never tell, why don't you take it

You're gonna make it after all
