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:

we've had actors, comedians, former athletes and a wwf wrestler become politicians here in the good ol' u.s of a. if i've learned anything in all my years...it's that the masses will vote based on popularity more than merit. like a few have already stated...if his boxing business decisions are any indication....they're are definitely going to be in for a ride. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) they can expect 2 chiefs of staff....2 secretaries....2 of basically everything....like he has in boxing. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

2 promoters

top rank and golden boy

2 managers/advisors

gacal and koncz

2 trainers

buboy and freddie

2 strength and conditioning coaches

the filipino dude and ariza

i'm sure the list goes on....

let's not forget the entourage/church.
