    legarda has not been getting press lately. i wonder why. is that intentional on her part?

    she, roxas and escudero were the go-to opposition candidates of the press before. if there was an issue, they would normally interview those three for comments. but as of recent months, she is no longer one of them. now, its just escudero, roxas and gordon.

    this piece will help loren get back on the spotlight.

      I remember she has ads on tv and radio.

      • July 1, 2009 at 12:44 pm

        hmmm, yeah you are right. i remember that tv ad, the one set in a poor area. that was not available in youtube, i wanted to write about it.

        she was one of the first presidentiables who had an ad campagin very early on. but she suddenly stopped her efforts.

        lets see if she gets into advertising again.

    Sen. Loren will bring a change..a green change! A very hardworking senator. Not too many know this of Sen. Loren. Cos yeah, you don’t need to publicize whatever good deeds you have done for the country. She just does the job silently. That’s what I like about her.

    Truly believe with the vision of this woman. Nevertheless, this woman is surely an epitome of a good and hardworking public servant. Surely, Senator Loren Legarda, is a 24 hour working senator who is totally deserving to be the Philippines next VP.

    I always like Loren. She has been the most consistent listener to the demand of the people. She does have a lot of limitation in terms of implementing her advocacy but her actions speak more than her words. Her experience in the Senate cannot be ignored. Her advocacy is conservative and I can relate to it…
