He sounds perfect....

In the news that Imee Marcos' son will be running as Mayor of Manila (with Imelda as Campaign manager); it is interesting to note that in the brief paragraph stating his suitability for the job it is not his education and qualifications that get priority....

Known for his good looks, Borgy has modeled for Bench, Adidas, and Swatch and also appeared on a TV sitcom. He recently finished his studies at the City College of New York, majoring in advertising and public relations, while working part-time at an independent record label.

Closely followed, by his first political 'lie' (or maybe that's too strong a word!)...even with my chronic maths, June 2004 to 2007 is not five years....

But despite being a Marcos, Borgy is known to be simple -- he says goes to Divisoria and enjoys getting bargains -- and was described in a June 2004 Inquirer interview as a "sensitive, witty, young man finely attuned to the reality around him.''

In that interview, Borgy said he was not being groomed for politics but admitted that he might later join the fray.

"I think politics has been part of the plan for my family, my mom included. So I can't say I'm not gonna do it. But in the next five years definitely not,'' Borgy said.

Good Grief. I would like to see his other credentials please. How's his Tagalog? Does he have a third language? A grasp of history? A concern for the wellbeing of the people? That's the problem with people being groomed (or not) for politics. They enter it as a career and not as a vocation for helping others. These politicians forget that they are employees of the people, and for the people, and that their positions are not cash cows.
