I just can’t help but get excited over the turn of events in the political arena the past few months…With Manny Villar clearly leading the race the past few months with little competition from other hopeful presidents. MV was leading surveys and was flooding our television sets with his witty commercials.
Then came Nonoy with his dramatic entrance to the arena. With the teary announcement of Mar backing out of the race, Nonoy instantly announced his plans for the 2010 (“let us continue the fight of my parents”) and from the recent survey, Nonoy was number 1.
It was clear cut for the past week that it would be head on with Noynoy vs. Villar, but wait! Gibo Teodoro is now for president. Just hours ago, Lakas-Kampi (Ruling Party) made its announcement that Secretary of Defense Gilbert Teodoro will be its standard-bearer, there were some comments, that maybe he can make it to the top. With the backing of the administration, and a proper mix of charisma and intelligence (number 1 in bar exams) + a beautiful wife and powerful family (Cojuangco clan) maybe he can compete with Noynoy and Villar.
Who’s next??!! ERap? Noli? Chiz or Loren?..I don’t know, but all I can predict is that the 2010 elections will be or can be the most exciting this country has ever seen. With no sure winner (unlike in the past elections where there are only two sure winners), now the race is so tight that no one can really know who’s gonna be our next leader.
*will soon post the resume of Villar, Aquino and Teodoro and other presidentiables*
