“I’ve always said that for me, it’s the Presidency but not at all costs; not at the cost of losing my soul, not at the cost of being eaten up by the system and the process and certainly not at the cost of not being able to do the things that I set out to do” – Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero, on why he’s not joining the presidential and vice-presidential race in 2010 anymore
