We end this year with another thought provoking issue. We’ve featured presidentiables (reluctant and otherwise) on ESQUIRE before. For our December 2015-January 2016 Meaning of Life issue, Vice President Jejomar Binay graces our cover. While in the middle of the biggest political campaign of his life, Binay also juggles a number of controversies and cases–but that’s nothing new for the second most powerful man in the country. The man from Makati shares where he’s been and what he’s learned in this ESQUIRE exclusive.

Interestingly, Binay is not the first presidential candidate of the 2016 national elections to grace the cover of the magazine. Secretary of the Interior and Local Government Mar Roxas was on the November 2014 cover, Sen. Grace Poe was on the December 2014-January 2015 cover, and Davao mayor Rodrigo Duterte was on the March 2015 cover. To date, Sen. Miriam Defensor-Aquino is the only candidate who has not appeared on the cover of the magazine.
