like numbers in a rumble for the P150-million lotto, we can also juggle names for the president and vice-president candidates for 2010. there will no single and unified opposition ticket that will comprise the so-called Genuine Opposition. everything will be split, like the pieces of a bibingka.
as of today, my pink crystal ball sees the following combinations:
president - noli de castro
vice- president - bong revilla
president - manny villar
vice-president - alan peter cayetano
president - mar roxas
vice president - noynoy aquino
nationalist people's coalition:
president - loren legarda
vice-president - chiz escudero
president - erap estrada
vcie-president - jojo binay
laban ng demokratikong pilipino faction:
president - ping lacson
vice-president - jamby madrigal
Who will win? I do not know. But if elections were held today, monday, march 10, 2008, this would be the fearless forecast of my pink crystal ball:
1. Erap Estrada and Loren Legarda
neck and neck, possibly at 30 percent each. 30 percent is Erap's consistent percentage of voters, while 30 percent is the average of Loren's last two published survey results with SWS.
2. Mar Roxas and Manny Villa
neck and neck for second place.
3. Noli de Castro -- quite close to Mar and Manny.
Erap wants to prove his innocence, the innocence of the lamb, while Loren is a get-up-and-go gurl. Like race horses, their noses are out there, pointed at the finish line.
The rest has to catch up, work harder, communicate better. Visibility and image are the key.
Remember, one year from now, or March of 2009, it will be all systems go!
