My prediction, if Erap is convicted, he will run! If acquitted, he will endorse a candidate from among Villar, Loren Legarda, Lacson, Jojo Binay and Chiz Escudero.
Why is Mar Roxas not on the list? Because the Liberal Party broke ranks with the opposition in the last days of the 2007 campaign.
Hindi ko alam na kumalas pala ang LP sa UNO during the last days.
UPDATE: Peter Lavina took offense at Maceda's comment and had this to say:
There appears to be a sinister plot to isolate the LP - and Mar Roxas - from the opposition, which is perceived to be the winner - again - in the next elections.
