national defensePresidential candidates 2010 update:

Since incumbent Vice-President Noli De Castro haven't decided until the set date whether to run for presidency or not, the administration's party had opted to choose between MMDA Chair Bayani Fernando and National Defense Sec. Gilberto Teodoro, Jr.. On Wednesday, after the conducted secret balloting among the members of the Lakas-Kampi-CMD Party, Sec. Teodoro won and eventually became the party's standard bearer. His possible running mate would be DILG Secretary Ronaldo Puno.

Personally, I won't be giving my vote to Sec. Teodoro because:
  1. He doesn't have a say about the country's foreign debt;
  2. He said he will continue the programs of the present administration which I think had not done any good to alleviate the economic status of the poor;
  3. He is pushing for an untimely charter change; and most of all
  4. He's a pro-war politician when he said he supports "War on Terrorism". (Who are these terrorists, anyway?)
