c'mohappy birthday! i survived a heart attack. i'm doing all i can to keep from having another one. and i'm taking brilinta. for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin. no more than one hundred milligrams as it affects how well it works. brilinta helps keep my platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. brilinta reduced the chance of another heart attack. or dying from one. it worked better than plavix. >>don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising

5:17 pm

5:42 pm
one of the first promises president elect donald trump made was this: >> we will also finally take care of our great veterans. >> reporter: today aboard the uss hornet museum in alameda, more than a hundred veterans came to the job fair for vets hoping that the president elect will do just that. >> sounds like a good thing on the surface, we will have to see. >> reporter: former air force senior airman, paul served during desert shield but said finding steady work has been difficult since out of the service. >> been very hard to adjust. >> reporter: he lives in hayward says if president elect trump is serious about helping them, there is a lot he can do, from improvement at va hospitals where vets have died waiting for treatment, to increasing mental health services but he says there is a lot he can do surrounding jobs. >> focus on more plans for training, continue down that

there was so much at stake during the presidential election this week, but even so more than 100 million people decided not to vote. tom vacar looks at why. >> one person, one vote. the sacred rights soldiers have died for produced an abysmal turn out. professor brady is dean of the goldman school of public policy and renowned international expert on elections. >> somehow politicicize not engage-- politics is not engaging people as much as you wish given the stakes. >> according to the nonpartisan u.s. election project, 231 million americans were eligible to vote. 126 million chose to vote for president. but more than 105 million chose not to. that is why president elect trump only got 59.8 million votes and secretary clinton sightly more with 60.1 million. each with only roughly 25% of
5:48 pm
the total potential number of voters. >> people don't-- they are not really convinced politics makes a difference in their lives. >> brady says nationally it is particularly true for young people, poor people, and latinos, who the political process, the so-called person-to-person ground game by-passes. >> campaigns know they are hard to get out so they don't focus on them. they don't get the phone calls or the people knocking at their doors to turn them out. >> reporter: california was worse. the golden state has 25.3 million eligible voters, but only about 9 million voted for president, just 35%. that means 16.3 million, 65%, did not. >> probably the biggest reason is that everybody knows that california doesn't really matter in the election because we are not a swing state. >> reporter: with the turn out low, historians will write, as in the past, that the winners really have no call to gloat. nor the losers, any real reason
