Bill Clinton Wants Manny Pacquiao To Become President

By John Santisteban
Manny-Pacquiao-with-two-womenFormer United States president Bill Clinton knows that Manny Pacquiao has been doing good things for his countrymen in the Philippines, and he thinks the former boxing champion has the makings a of a good public servant.
In a recent appearance on the American late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live, Clinton said that Pacquiao should aspire for higher position in the government.
Clinton is aware that Pacquiao is already a member of House of Representatives in the Philippines, but he insisted that Pacquiao should consider running for president soon.
“He’s already in the Philippine parliament and I hope he goes right on up the ladder,” Clinton said. “I think he’s a great guy and he’s a great role model for the country. He’s very smart and honest, and so he’s thinking about the rest of his life.”
Pacquiao made his eighth appearance on the late night show after Clinton’s turn.
When asked about Clinton’s suggestion about his political career, Pacquiao said that he is not yet thinking about running for higher position, reiterating that he is focused on his role as a congressman.
“Right now, I’m focused on my position as a Congressman,” Pacquiao said.
Pacquiao, whose wife, Jinkee, is the vice governor of their province in the Philippines, is currently preparing for his upcoming showdown against Manny Pacquiao on April 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Kimmel asked Pacquiao about his first showdown with Bradley, and the former pound-for-pound king said that most fight fans and boxing experts were one in saying that he clearly won the fight.
Pacquiao, who is coming off a unanimous decision win over Brandon Rios in November, wants to prove that he is better than Bradley, and that he still has the killer instinct, contrary to what his American rival is saying.
Pacquiao insisted, though, that he will not force a knockout, saying that he is planning to be aggressive to stop Bradley on his tracks in their rematch.
“I’m not thinking about the knockout. If the knockout comes, it will come. What my focus is, is more aggressiveness, more throwing punches and, you know, I want to prove to him that my killer instinct is always there,” Pacquiao said.
