"As a woman, a mother, and an entrepreneur, I need to believe our country can be a place where everyone has a fair shot at success. This November's election will determine whether we get to keep moving forward, or if we're forced to go back to policies that ask people like my middle-class family in Ohio to carry the burden — while people like me, who don't need tax breaks, get extra help."

"Mitt Romney would raise taxes on middle-class families to cut his own and mine. And that's not who we are as a nation. And let me tell you why: because the Eva Longoria who worked at Wendy's flipping burgers, she needed a tax break. But the Eva Longoria who works on movie sets does not."
"In 2008, less than half of all eligible voters between the ages of 18 and 24 voted. Young America, why are we only speaking with half our voice when so many issues at stake here directly affect us? You know who I'm voting for. I'm not going to tell you who to vote for. I'm here to ask you to commit to vote."
"I think there are some who believe they are actually protecting women . . . and that it is better for women to be taken care of. [But] women want to take care of themselves, and I think having a voice in how that is done is very important. And frankly . . . I can't understand why any woman would want to vote for Mitt Romney, except maybe Mrs. Romney."
"I don't understand how a nation where freedom of religion and speech are so highly touted and are highly defended by liberals, how it is so easy to proceed with bigotry against someone who happens to be Mormon. . . . I dare anyone to put another religion in there for Mitt Romney, and they wouldn't say a word. . . . What if Mitt Romney was Jewish? What if Mitt Romney was Muslim? Think about how people act differently toward that."
"As a woman, I'm very worried about what the Republicans propose. Women in this country have fought so hard to ensure that we have the rights that we enjoy now. And we still don't even have fair pay with men . . . there's a vast difference between what they're proposing. It couldn't be any different. Just glancing at it you can tell that the two sides are completely divided, and for me as a woman it's a very easy choice to go with the president who supports women."
