The best president the country never had?

Raul RocoNope. Personally, I think that honor is reserved for Jovito Salonga. But Senator Roco comes close. Really, really close.

I voted for Senator Roco during the 1998 presidential elections, the first election I ever participated in. Nung 2004, hindi siya ang binoto ko kundi si Eddie Villanueva, pero hindi ako tumigil sa paghanga at paniniwala sa integrity at conviction ni Roco. Talagang humiling nga ako noon na sana may nag-give way sa kanilang dalawa at nagsama na lang sana ng puwersa para lumakas ang kanilang kandidatura.

For giving hope to the youth and the remaining idealists in this country, maraming MARAMING salamat po. You will be sorely missed.
