Is there really a Duterte magic?

Now that there is again much hullabaloo about the good mayor of Davao, Rody Duterte, expressing that he is running for President (pending his filing of candidacy and the approval of the COMELEC for him to do so), let me share with you this article I've written for Blog Watch of the Philippine Online Chronicles with the same title.

It’s final: a “NO” is a “NO.” The #DuterteSerye ended; for now, at least?
Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte filed his certificate of candidacy for Mayor of Davao City and not for President of the Republic of the Philippines. His growing numbers of supporters who hoped and waited until the last hour of filing on Friday, October 16, 2015 were disappointed and many took to social media to express their sentiments about their hearts being broken by the news that he will not run at all.
Let me start with a disclaimer that I am not a paid hack of anyone. I am a simple homemaker who is not even from Davao City but someone from Davao del Norte. Out here, we take pride in being called we’re from Davao even if we are not from the city. After all, we belong to the Davao Region which is composed of Davao City, Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur, Davao Oriental, Davao Occidental and Compostela Valley Province. I would just like to share a few thoughts about the Duterte mania that hogged the limelight these past few days.
Who is Rodrigo Duterte, by the way?
