Sister Cecilia Gaudette, a 106-year old Catholic nun who lives abroad in Rome, has informed the BBC that she has registered as a Democrat and will be voting for Barack Obama on Election Day. Though Sister Cecilia has not voted in over 50 years, with her last vote being cast for Dwight D. Eisenhower (!) in 1952, she claims that she is "encouraged" by Senator Obama, and feels that Obama "seems to be a good man with a good private life. That's the first thing," Gaudette notes, "then he must be able to govern."Though the Catholic church's pro-life stance surely clashes with Obama's pro-choice views on abortion, Sister Cecilia claims she is more concerned with "peace abroad" and stays on top of US news and events by "reading newspapers and watching TV at the convent." It is a testament to how important this election is, not only at home, but abroad, that Sister Cecilia would go out of her way to stay informed and ensure that her voice is heard in her home country. Though Gaudette, at 106, claims to "have no plans for the future", her vote will ensure that, in some way, she has a say in the future after all. 106-Year-Old Voter Chooses Obama [BBC News]
