[Prospero] Pichay downplayed the supposed public clamor that apparently convinced [Noynoy] Aquino to join the presidential race.
“I cannot understand why you would call it a euphoria,” he said. “It’s euphoria when you have one million people rejoicing in the streets. But it’s not when you have only 5,000 people wearing yellow shirts.”
Pichay [a vice president of the Lakas-Kampi-CMD party] said the supposed clamor was “felt only in Metro Manila and ABS-CBN.”
