pulse asia december 2009 vice-presidentiables poll – mar roxas and loren legarda a virtual tie

December 22, 2009 10 comments

mar roxas and loren legarda are on a virtual tie in this poll. this is a much harder read and a more interesting one. while their national totals are on a virtual tie, how they got there are very different.

roxas’ strengths are NCR and visayas which are legarda’s weaknesses. legarda’s strength is luzon while that is roxas’ weakness. there seem to be a clear divide among the voters for both of them in specific areas. it would be interesting to know what the explanations are for the disparities.

there is also a clear disparity between the two on socio-eco class. mar roxas’ strength is at the NCR while it is legarda’s weakness.

mr. pink, the uglifier of metro manila bayani fernando to run for vice president – smart move, almost

December 1, 2009 5 comments

we think it is right for mr. pink bayani fernando to drop his run for the presidency, his chances of winning without a party is anywhere from zero to nil.

bayani fernando

we also think his running for vice president is right, well almost. we think fernando will make an excellent vice president for any candidate. he has the passion and the energy to get things done, no matter what. these are very good qualities as a 2nd in command.

there is the almost there as we think he will have a hard time to win this election as VP. running for the senate would be much better for him but the vice-presidency is a tough fight for him.

we wish mr. pink, the uglifier of metro manila,  bayani fernando all the best.

Legarda says yes to Villar
Team-up finalized at Sunday dinner

MANILA, Philippines—It was a victorious day for two Mannys.

On the day Manny Pacquiao made history as the only fighter to dominate seven world boxing divisions, Sen. Manuel “Manny” Villar Jr. quietly captured the heart of a woman he wanted to be his vice presidential running mate.

At a private dinner in Makati City on Sunday, Sen. Loren Legarda said yes to the standard-bearer of the Nacionalista Party (NP), who was with his spouse Cynthia, the representative of Las Piñas City.

Villar will personally make the announcement today (Tuesday) at 3:30 p.m. at the Laurel House, his residence, on Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City.

Legarda confirmed this to the Philippine Daily Inquirer in an interview shortly after the dinner, which lasted three hours.

finally someone agrees to be gilbert teodoro’s VP running mate – edu manzano

game ka na ba?

the long wait is over – at last someone has agreed to be gilbert teodoro’s VP runningmate – edu manzano. manzano is more know for being an actor/tv show host and the ex-husband of vilma santos. he used to be vice mayor of makati but his most recent government role is as chair of the Optical Media Board. we see him around town raiding stalls of pirated CDs and computer software.

we do not know if there was some kind of process that LAKAS-KAMPI-CMD applied to choose manzano but we doubt if there was one. they will probably say there was and that edu came out as the best choice, but the truth is the ruling/admin party had not choice. all of the politicians they wanted to be teodoro’s VP backed out, even his own party mate, secretary ronaldo puno and manzano’s ex governor vilma santos.

lets see how the tandem of teodoro and manzano will work out. actors in nationally elected positions  based on the last election tended to bomb ouot. maybe manzano will break the trend.

just think – edu manzano vs loren legarda vs mar roxas???? well….
