No One Saw It Coming

There goes my presidential bet as he conceded to Sen. Noynoy Aquino.
"Sir, hats off to how you ran your campaign. You have class."
Would love to see him run for office in 2013. I am really fond of this man.

My observations --
  • The biggest surprise in this recent presidential election is the rise of Jojo Binay. No one even thought he would be making it. But he has been on top since the tallying of poll results had begun. So will it be him or Mar Roxas? Mar Roxas did not see this coming as he had been continuously number one on the surveys.
  • It was not Manny Villar that was the threat to the presidency of Noynoy Aquino but Joseph Estrada.
  • Richard Gordon is #6. Eddie Villanueva surpassed him
  • The Filipino people, apparently, have very short memory. Joseph Estrada is #2.
  • Same set of people in the senators list: Revilla, Estrada, Santiago, Drilon, Osmena, Enrile, Cayetano, etc. I was hoping for new faces and new names in the Senate.
  • The House of Congress just got interesting with Manny Pacquiao, Lucy Torres and Lani Mercado.
Kudos to COMELEC for the success of the first automated polls. The election was generally peaceful. The results came in pretty fast. Thank you, Lord, for that.

I promise that in the next election, I will vote no matter what. It feels strange not seeing the indelible ink on my finger.

Now let's set aside our differences and move towards working on making this country a better place to live in.
