At his Independence Day speech, President Aquino was all praises for DILG Secretary Mar Roxas. No anointment was given since that would have to wait for at the earliest in July 2015. The last day for filing of the Certificate of Candidacy is in October 2015 while national elections are for May 2016, FEARLESS FORECAST: An Aquino endorsement for President in 2016 can only help Senator Grace Poe as it would increase her chances of beating front running Vice President Binay. President Aquino anointing Secretary Mar Roxas as the Liberal Party standard bearer (Presidential candidate) is not enough to improve the dismal popularity and acceptance ratings of the presumptive LP bet. In fact, the greatest help to the Binay campaign that can be contributed by President Aquino is in choosing Mar Roxas over Grace Poe, since Mar Roxas would be far easier to beat than Grace Poe, as far as the Binay camp is concerned.
