I heartily applaud SENATOR KIKO PANGILINAN'S early declaration for the Vice Presidency, which is off to a running start with the help of wife and megastar, SHARON CUNETA and her legions of adoring Sharonians. (Ronnie Puno can just run for Barangay Tanod). Of course, Kiko has a long way to go in order to regain the confidence of many in Civil Society who cannot forget his role in the 2004 election canvass as "Mr. Noted" (some of them are sure to show up here making snide remarks). But Sen. Pangilinan's campaign to wield the Damocles Sword of the Vice Presidency is tied to a serious voter registration campaign for youthful and first time voters. This recalls a page from out of the history of the US Civil Rights Movement of the 50s and 60s that can only yield fruitful political results. It also happens to be a more statesmanlike strategy than just trotting out the megastar missus. And listen to the above speech given by Kiko at Rock the Vote 2010. This is not your usual mild mannered Kiko "Clark Kent" Pangilinan. Here are glimmerings of Martin Luther Kiko. And check out his campaign on Facebook.
