ABSTRACT
The article presents an interview with political activist Doris Haddock. On being asked about her feelings on her 100th birthday, she says that she keeps forgetting that she is that old. She says that If she would have been elected to the U.S. Senate, she would have finished her term. She believes that public financing for elections will happen eventually, especially since the U.S. president Barack Obama is in favor of it.
