I never imagined that Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III will be included in the long list of ‘presidentiables’ – not until the death and burial of former president Cory Aquino.
It’s magic! Or isn’t it fate? The silent senator Nonoy is now dragged to Malacanang by his supporters obviously to take advantage of “Cory and Ninoy magic”
Is there really magic? The number of people who went to the wake of former president Cory and those who were in funeral procession symphatized the family. It was never meant all those people will vote.
But in the Philippines, it is true that sympathy is turned to votes.
The clamor for Noynoy only show that we don’t reach yet political maturity. We always make and bend trends and selection of leader is not based on competence.
I am not saying that Nonoy is not competent. But I insist that his being Aquino alone is not enough. Noynoy still need to prove himself. He should stand on his own feet.
Noynoy is not yet ready. I feel better if he continues to serve as senator and learn how to be humble and smart.
I hope the Aquino family and Noynoy listen to their hearts, not to clamor.
