There you go.
This might be the unbeatable dream team:
Senator Miriam Santiago for President
Benigno Aquino III for Vice-President
But Santiago has to hold on until the day of her proclamation by Congress in June 2016.
This pairing would work for those who want PNoy to become president again. And for Santiago, this would be a chance for her to become President even only for a short time – something she was denied in 1992.
I know there are serious issues about her mental health. But such issues will no longer come into play with her Stage 4 cancer. Assuming she lasts until June 2016.
The race just got more interesting.
