President Barack Obama has finally reached the Philippine shore yesterday, April 28, 2014.

Filipinos were either delighted or appalled by this visit for reasons that are far too numerous for someone like me to enumerate.

Whatever the reasons for this diplomatic visit, let’s hope it will be for the good of the majority.

Many heads of State have already visited the Philippines. I found a list in Wikipedia showing who these people were.
