"Arroyo, 57, a U.S.-trained economist and daughter of a former president, had the support of big business, charismatic Christian groups and much of the political elite as she campaigned largely on her track record and Poe's inexperience...

...Poe, 64, who left school at 15, inherited many of Estrada's poor supporters. He was also backed by Imelda Marcos, the widow of dictator Ferdinand Marcos, whose two-decade rule ended in 1986 in the first of two "people power" uprisings....His reticence on policy issues rattled financial markets.

I didn't vote for GMA. I didn't vote for FPJ. Reading this article on ABS-CBN, I now have an image of what fair, balanced, and objective means.
