102-year-old Iowan prepares to cast her 20th presidential vote

Ruline Steininger’s political endorsement might not come with star power, but it exemplifies staying power.

Steininger, 102, of Pleasant Hill, expects to vote this fall in her 20th presidential election. She hopes to cast her vote for Hillary Clinton, whom she considers one of the best candidates she’s ever seen.

The retired teacher came to Grand View University to hear the former secretary of State speak Friday. She backed Clinton in the 2008 Democratic caucuses and plans to do so again Monday.

“I think she’s the best qualified. She has so much experience,” Steininger said, shortly before the candidate took the stage.

3. 102 and still gets around

Good for her
I got a great aunt who is 99 this year and she still drives
It helps she lives in a small community
She said if it was a big town she would not drive

On a political note Good endorsement for HRC

Wisdom does come with age.

15. Thanks, Cha. I was happy a national paper like USA Today ran this story.

I didn't see William's Des Moines Register OP before posting.

8. She was born at a time when women couldn't even vote! We've come a long way in her lifetime.

Gotta love this lady:

...."Has she ever been tempted to vote for a Republican for president?

Steininger scrunched her face at the question, as if she someone had passed sour milk under her nose.

“No,” she said, “I can’t say that I have been.”

Anyone who hopes to follow Steininger’s path should heed her secret to longevity: “I just keep not dying.”
