So, Emmanuel Pacquaio is on the verge of possibly taking his political career to the next level. I'm not saying that he'll succeed, just that he's definitely giving it a go.

What does that mean for the people of a country who've been through many tough times, but seem to be on the upswing nowadays. If he parlays his cult of personality into higher political office, what can the people expect?

There's an interesting article on Bloomberg.com and here's the link:

nobody has thought of this, but were all here blaming Arum for the fight not happening, and Manny is easily smart enough to know that if he stays with Arum the Mayweather fight will always be out of his reach, so he stays with Arum, Arum soaks up all the hate and Manny is looking nice and innocent, an elaborate way to duck Mayweather and a pretty smart way too. While where all made to believe that it's all Arums fault, the oldest trick in the book (playing dumb) seems to of worked a treat.

I've often thought that too. I mean the guy did sign an extension relatively quickly no questions asked, right after manny basically got jipped out of a decision win, which I believe arum had involvement in, but who knows.
