I want you to know that America expects better of you as president than what it saw in the campaign you ran. You are now to be our president, and that brings new responsibilities. I hope you feel the call of history to live up to them.
I am not voting for a perfect candidate; I am voting for every woman who was ever humiliated, every girl who was ever knocked down, emotionally or physically abused. I'm voting for human beings who, despite trying to do their best, are flawed. I'm voting for democracy. I am voting for America.
They say pictures are worth one thousand words, but voting literally can be worth hundreds of billions of dollars to you. When California voters like me voted on a highly-contested insurance reform ballot measure in 1988, we could not have foreseen how much it would have saved us 28 years later.
