Imelda Marcos' political comeback in the Philippines
The former Philippine first lady was known for her vast collection of shoes accumulated while her husband, Ferdinand Marcos, was in power. Since Marcos was ousted in the 1986 "people power" revolution, Imelda has faced several charges of embezzlement, corruption and tax evasion. But the 80-year-old is still influential in parts of the Philippines, and she is bidding for a congressional seat in this year's election. Al Jazeera's Veronica Pedrosa goes on a museum tour about the former first lady, conducted by Carlos Celdran. (May 9, 2010)
