RULINE STEININGER: I'm 103, three months, and three days. I count 'em all.

In my first century of life, I have seen many incredible things. The first home I remember, our closest neighbor was a Civil War veteran. I've seen two world depressions, a cure for polio, a man on the moon, the end of smallpox, an attack on American soil, but when I was in high school, a girl could only be two things: you could be a schoolteacher, or you could be a nurse. There was no other choice for a woman.

INTERVIEWER: Why are you voting for Hillary Clinton?

STEININGER: Why? That's a foolish question!

I don't think anyone's ever been more prepared than Hillary Clinton.

INTERVIEWER: I want to read you something that you wrote in your Christmas card this year: "I've some to the decision that I must live to do my part in November 2016. I can die later," you wrote.

STEININGER: That's right. I'm doing alright so far.

It lets little girls know that you can be anything you want to be in this country.

You don't have to wonder whether they're going to be a schoolteacher or a nurse.

You're gonna win. I feel it in my bones. The sky's the limit now. You can be president!
