In EXPECTORANTS, a fellow blogger asks,
3. Manolo Quezon, will you ever run for president?
To which I have to respond by stating an answer to a similar question asked in Batang Baler Forums.
My answer was basically as follows:
I won’t run for public office because of many reasons, chief among them: a) don’t have the funds b) don’t have a suitable personality c) I’m adopted so my name doesn’t matter d) you have to be true to your true calling, in my case being a journalist/historian e) a belief i share with my late dad that one Quezon in politics is enough.
I have served in an appointive position but won’t serve again until I’m more financially stable; and absolutely the only position I’d contemplate campaigning for is as a delegate to a constitutional convention, and even then, someone would have to bankroll the campaign.
