Noynoy-Binay! The Campaign Coup of 2010.

As the Senate and Congress closed their canvass on the national elections here in the Philippines, Sen. Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III and Jejomar "Jojo" Binay is going to be proclaimed President and Vice President of the republic today.

Vice Presidential candidate Mar Roxas. with around 700,000 votes behind Binay is announcing that he will be filing electoral protest...

It is high time for these stalwarts to focus their attention on the well-being of the country not on other thing things. Like, why is it that Aquino would opt to stay on another place than Malacanang Palace? Also, he has to consider the issues concerning about his being a smoke since the Department of Health (DOH) is strongly campaigning against nicotine addiction. And this department is part and an important wing of the bureaucracy.

Binay, on the other side must translate his campaign promise into reality: Kay Binay, gaganda ang buhay (With Binay, life would be easier/beautiful).

In the end, it's the people they vowed to serve who matter, not the other way around.
