Hello natsvelascotan! I would go for Sen. Chiz Escudero. I just like him because he looks like Bamboo.hehe..just kidding. Seriously, I like Chiz Escudero because he is quiet smart. I like the way he talks andI think he can carry everything.

I would vote for Chiz Escudero. In my opinion, Loren Legarda has been in Politics too long. You'll see her attending premier nights of certain movies.Which in my opinion is for the purpose of getting notice. Also during Ces Drilon's abduction, she suddenly became part of the negotiation team only during the eve of her release. I know that there is nothing wrong with that. It's part of her strategy. She is not the only politician doing this. Bayani Fernando's MMDA poster is all around the country. Even in places that MMDA has no Juridiction. I think it's cheating. It is unfair for those whoc an't afford to spend that much money on campaigns. We need a fresh perspective. Though I am not sure that Chiz is ready for the responsibility.

Ditto on needing a fresh perspective. We really do need something (or someone) "new". Chiz Escudero looks promising. He went to my college a couple of years ago and he seemed smart and opinionated - and he talked to the students as if they were his colleagues and friends. My professor told me it's unlikely for him to run this early though. He (prof) says Chiz might run as VP.

Running for vice president might be possible. Most of his votes came from college students.

I'll go for Chiz too just like other people says, I think Chiz really have the guts to be a candidate or maybe the next president cause he has quite intelligent too and I see that he has a genuine love not only for our country but for all the Filipino people. Thats why he's on the top of senatorial race when senatorial elections begin.

If there's no other choices, then I would go for Chiz. I like Loren too. She is hardworking and was able to pass good bills as a senator. Chiz is not good as a congressman and a senator. I think he will do good though if he's in a executive post. However, since there are other choices, I will not vote either of them in the on-coming election whether as President or Vice-President.

I think Chiz would be my choice if there are no other choices to be seen. looks like Chiz is a much more dynamic politicians and being young I guess he has more energy of a new politician than being tainted as being traditional politicians. Loren on the other hand is tainted to play in that arena already.

Hi there. If I were made to choose between these two, I'd say Sen. Chiz Escudero would definitely have my vote. I find his candidness quite a refreshing change to the hypocrisy of the traditional politicians of yore. Also, I find that he speaks with such authority that one couldn't help hearing him out. There are few people in government who I feel still warrant the respect of the Filipino people and I believe Sen. Chiz Escudero to be one of those. So, if he ever does run for president in 2010, I'll definitely vote for him.

politician wise I think they are both good candidates my money would be on Chiz but then again I don't think they are just the same as all the corrupt politicians running our country. I think they have their own agenda and it is not always in the best interest of our country
