Campaign status: Lost

WOMAN: I'm getting ready for a lot of things. A lot of things.

WOMAN: It's spring, so we're starting to get the gardens ready and my tomatoes are legendary here in my own neighborhood.

WOMAN: My daughter is about to start kindergarten next year, and so we're moving just so she can belong to a better school.

MAN: [In Spanish] My brother and I are starting our first business.

WOMAN: After five years of raising my children, I am now going back to work.

WOMAN: Every day we're trying to get more and more ready and more prepared.

MAN 2: Baby boy, coming your way. (Laughs).

FEMALE COLLEGE STUDENT: Right now I'm applying for jobs. It's a look into what the real world will look like after college.

MAN: I'm getting married this summer to someone I really care about.

YOUNG BOY: I'm gonna be in the play and I'm gonna be in a fish costume. [Singing] From little tiny fishes….

WOMAN: I'm getting ready to retire soon. Retirement means reinventing yourself in many ways.

WOMAN: Well we've been doing a lot of home renovations.

MAN: But, most importantly, we just want to teach our dog to quit eating the trash.

WOMAN: And so we have high hopes for 2015 that that's going to happen.

MAN: I've started a new career recently. This is a fifth generation company, which means a lot to me. This country was founded on hard work, and it really feels good to be a part of that.

CLINTON: I'm getting ready to do something, too. I'm running for president. Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. Every-day Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion. So you can do more than just get by, you can get ahead. And stay ahead! Because when families are strong, America is strong. So, I'm hitting the road to earn your vote. Because it's your time, and I hope you'll join me on this journey.
