Last night, I learned from the news that Loren Legarda and Vilma Santos will not be among those vice presidential candidates Lakas Kampi will choose. I also learned that Bong Revilla can be among the picks for Vice President since he also belongs to the same party. Apparently, Bong said he is still waiting for GOD sign. Do you think he can be a good Vice President? No hurting words, please.

Oh my... between Loren Legarda, Bong Revilla, and Mar Roxas... i would definitely choose Roxas... i don't like Loren... she give the impression that she is power hungry... Bong Revilla on the other hand is like any other politician who just won because they are popular... Mar has more achievements... and he comes from a family of good politicians... so his track record is good enough for me...

agree with you tere. among the vice-president candidates, i think it is roxas that comes across with a solid political experience and provides a concrete platform of governance. revilla and manzano, since he already announced his bid for the vice-president post, area only banking on their popularity as celebrities. agree with your observation that legarda comes off as someone as power hungry. probably because she feels she was cheated in the last national elections. can't blame her though. but she has shown that she is a political butterfly. lol!!! cheers!!!

If Bong runs then it would be a very easy choice between him and Mar Roxas. Track records, accomplishments and qualifications check, he will be no match for Mar Roxas. Celebrity appeal check, well there's Korina Sanchez for Mar. I just feel that Mar is the strongest candidate there is at the moment for VP. But that is just my opinion. Cheers!

I agree with you. It is not that hard to choose between Mar and Bong. It is a clear signal who has a better record of public service.

He can still be a good senator. As a Vice President, I think it's too early for him. He still needs to prove and show more of himself as a public servant. It shouldn't be mere press releases on TV. Real public service should be transparent.

this is a no-brainer for me... i will not vote for bong revilla until he shows something concrete that he can contribute to the progress of our country. for the others who would say that i may be building ladders and not giving bong revilla a chance, i say i wouldn't even risk it by voting for him. i know my vote deserves someoen better. just my two cents. cheers!!!

I am not keen on voting those who have philandering records. Having women around you other than your wife makes him more prone to corruption. We have had enough corrupt officials in the country, we could not afford to have another one. A lot of people suffer because of corruption. He might be looking for God's sign, I hope the signal is for him not to run for higher post.
