Villar, Roxas, Legarda, Lacson

Continuation ito ng post ko dito. Konting adjustment lang sa prediction ko.

Only two candidates have a good chance of getting erap's endorsement: Villar and Legarda. I think Villar will get Erap's endorsement.

I also sense too that both Villar and Legarda are the most likely to flipflop from Opposition to Admin if they don't get Erap's blessing. Since malamang makukuha ni Villar ang endorso ni Erap, magiging defacto candidate ng administration si Legarda at official candidate for the president ng NPC ni Cojuangco. Pero kung si Legarda naman ang maging kandidato ni Erap, si Villar ay magiging unofficial candidate ng Malacanang.

I think Mar Roxas doesn't mind getting erap's endorsement and be the main opposition candidate for the presidency. Sa tingin ko hindi siya lilipat sa admin kapag hindi niya nakuha ang basbas ni estrada. Same with Lacson.

But I don't see Erap picking Ping and Mar, so both of these two will run as third force type candidates.

Mar Roxas will most likely be civil society's anti-Arroyo candidate (as opposed to Villar as ERap/GO candidate). And Lacson once again will run as an Independent candidate. Legarda will be the NPC and the admin's candidate.

you're right about villar and legarda, they won't think twice about flipflopping from opposition to admin if they don't get erap's blessing. it will matter, too, i think, kung sinong kukunin nilang running-mate for v.p. i read somewhere na nililigawan na ni villar si gov. vilma santos-recto. i bet loren is thinking jinggoy estrada or bong revilla.

I have a feeling na there was a deal struck between Estrada and Villar. That's why Jinggoy broke away from the Opposition majority to side with the admin in making Villar Senate president. And Dad supported jinggoy's move. And you kept hearing Villar say na he thought erap was not guilty and wants to see him acquitted. tapos madalas ring bisita si villar sa tanay residence ni erap dati.

Villar and Vilma? Baka Villar at Jinggoy! dahil matagal nang napagusapan yang deal nila.

Loren will probably pick his partymate Chiz Escudero.

ay oo nga, loren and chiz, me panalo. villar and jinggoy? i'm not sure. but maybe you're right. villar might not have a choice, given all the wheeling and dealing he's had to do become senate pres. unless pagandahan ang mangyari, then mas beauteous si vilma kay jinggoy.

Sana nga tatakbo si Mar Roxas for President in 2010. I don't care if he gets Erap's endorsement. After all, politics in 2010 would not be between Erap and Gloria.

anong "sana nga", kevin? are there any doubts re him running for president in 2010?

Kevin Ray said...

Sinabi kong "sana nga" dahil we are not sure if he's going to run. 2010 is still far but I hope he does. Dami kasi ng political pressures na maaring ma-eencounter nya kapag maraming opposition figures na tatakbo for President in 2010. But I'm optimistic that he will heed the people's call. Mar Roxas for President in 2010! http://marroxas2010.blogspot.com

Sana john, matulungan mo ako sa pag-spread ng online petition for Mar Roxas 2010 www.petitionspot.com/petitions/marroxas2010

Thanks!
