Ann Nixon Cooper: Inspiration

Obama hails the 106-year-old black woman who symbolises the spirit of his triumph
Casting her ballot in a wheelchair as an early voter last month, she reached out to the voting machine’s 21st-century touch screen to choose Mr Obama.

'The first black president - isn’t that something, at 106 years old,’ she said.

The inspirational woman from humble roots who didn’t give up dancing until three years ago when heart attacks slowed her down, tells young people: ‘Keep smiling.’
