Roxas and 4 other presidential aspirants in ANC Leadership Forum

I was able to watch yesterday evening's Countdown to 2010: The ANC Leadership Forum which put together 5 (it was 6 supposedly, but Senator Ping Lacson wasn't able to attend because he fell ill) of the presidential hopefuls in one place.

Together with Senator Mar Roxas were fellow Senators Chiz Escudero, Dick Gordon, Department of National Defense Secretary Gibo Teodoro and Pampanga Governor Ed Panlilio.

Roxas was asked on his accomplishments as a public servant, and I believe he stood out. He was also asked about the issue that he was just using Ms. Korina Sanchez for his presidential ambitions.
"Mahal ko si Korina. Matagal kaming nag-sama, limang taon. Nagkakaintindihan kami. May pangarap kami sa isa't isa at matibay ang aming samahan. Tulad ng sinabi mo, mga kritiko ko ang nagsasabi nun. So, inggit lang sila. (I love Korina. We have long been together, for five years. We understand each other. We both have dreams for each other and our relationship is strong. Like what you said, my critics are the one saying that. So, they're just envious)" Roxas told Tina Monzon-Palma on the getting-to-know portion of the forum which made the whole audience laugh.

This ABS-CBN News article also tells the symbolism of the padyak being used by Roxas.
Such elitist background doesn’t seem to jive with the advertisement showing him driving two poor kids in a "tricycad," or a bicycle strapped to a sidecar. He explained that the 3-wheeled bicycle is "just a symbol of where we are right now."
Below is the video clip from ABS-CBN's Bandila:
