Senator Noynoy Aquino, is it the name or the man?

After a long period of "Pakipot" Senator Noynoy Aquino has finally decided to accept the challenge to run for the Presidency of the Philippines. Although his period of contemplation about the decision to run as president of the Philippines is ridiculed by some, that didn't mean they did not support him.
I really don't have any particular interests on who leads the Philippine nation as long as he or she does it well enough to lead us to a better future. But is Senator Noynoy the person to lead the Philippine nation to a better future? I honestly don't know because I don't know the guy, except that he is the son of Ninoy Aquino and Cory Aquino and that in itself suggests a lot about his current popularity.
It seems that the Filipino people are expecting Senator Noynoy Aquino to a do lot of things, and of all because his father and mother accomplished much for us. It seems that we are seeing only his parents capabilites and not his own which is a bad thing in the long run.
I'm not suggesting that Senator Noynoy Aquino is not fit for the presidency, In fact, I believe he might do some good for the Philippines if he was given the oppurtinity to do so. But, I only say that we should be careful in our expectations so that we could avoid disappointments in the future.
