Loren Legarda versus Chiz Escudero in 2010

Yes, you read it right! In 2010, the most dramatic political battle will be Loren Legarda’s quest to get the NPC’s presidential nomination.

Earlier, NPC patriarch Danding Cojuangco announced that NPC will have Loren and Chiz. However, it was not clear if it will be Loren – Chiz tandem or Chiz – Loren tandem.

After the announcement, Loren Legarda’s body language seem tell everybody that she is the anointed one and she has the sure fire in 2010.

Will Loren gets NPC nomination?

That makes Loren so annoying. Yes, she is visible in surveys but her arrogance make her an annoying political material. Imagine, until this time, she still believes that she won in 2004! In her political ads, she spoke about corruption but she had been more visible as kidnapping negotiator rather than a figure in the battle against corruption.

When asked by reporters about her plan, she confidently revealed that she is ready to lead the Philippines. That raised the eyebrows of some. She even attempted to announce officially that she will run as president in 2010 during her birthday.

The best thing Loren must do now is to concede to Noli de Castro and control her smiles on TV. She will gain sympathy that way.

Will Chiz be the next President?

Here comes Chiz Escudero, a soft-spoken, close to the youth, humble and a fresh political material. Chiz is getting the attention of many. Many likes the way Chiz deals with his fate. He did not show arrogance. He never grow as proud as Loren. Filipino’s wisdom see that difference.

There are many chances that Chiz will be nominated as official presidential candidate of NPC. As reported, NPC will hold a national consultation. There are already indicators that most of NPC members will favor Chiz over Legarda.

A special consideration will also be the resistance of many to a woman president. In addition, Loren had shown her narrow view in joining a party. She just joined NPC becuase of personal reason.

Remember, Loren was vice president of Lakas but left the party becuase she run as vice president of Fernando Poe Jr.

Loren has just joined NPC. I think, NPC men will remember that. Besides, Loren appears to desperately want to get the highest position for political vindication.

Loren needs ‘to eat more rice and salt’ to get NPC nomination. Most likely she will be asked to run as Escudero’s vice president in 2010.

I doubt Loren will agree to run as vice president. Loren will have to either agree with party’s decision, or go back to the senate, or leave the party and run as president under other party.

Postscript: Chiz must also control his public appearances endorsing a product. He looks better as senator and future president rather than a product endorser.

  1. enough of loren! she won’t make it on 2010. NPC men vs. this ambitious woman who believes she’s really the vice president of the philippines during 2004 elections? c’mon wake-up sen. legarda, you’re better as a newscaster but not as a politician.
    maybe chiz escudero is the answer to our problems, “the next obama” of our country. and I agree with you, he is better as a senator and not as an endorser, and his cheap looking wife not to mention she looks like a gay should just stay home and take care of their children.

    I love your point Man.

    On the other hand your analysis is correct. Lore Legarda is a good dancer and a political users.

    On the other part i also dont like Senador Escudero because i believed that the next president of the country should come with the profession of Engineers, Physics or Information Technology to mechanize and reprogram everything.

    I am tired of politicians. They have the same promised since 1970’s

  3. of course Loren wins. she is the most favored public servant nowadays. do you know why? it’s because of her sincerity and commitment to her work and to the people. parang hindi natutulog sa katatrabaho.and also because of her charisma.. I think one strong woman such as her is the agent for change. I’ll go for loren over anyone else… Chiz next. so it should be Loren-chiz. not the other way around.

  4. It’s too remote yet to discuss who can be the right person to be the president of the republic. At any rate, however, let me say something remotely. The Philippines doesn’t need a lawyer as president. What we need is a philosopher; a seeker of truth. For, if we will allow somebody again like Gloria Arroyo to rule our country, the country will go to the dogs. The first requirement is the honesty a candidate must have. She/ He should be not rapacious of the power. The candidate must have the cachet. At this moment, I am still making a thorough observation as to who deserved to the the 2010 president. Not only, cognizant of his rights but the rights of his constituents as well. Most of all, the next president should bear in his mind that his being president is not inborn but a title he owes to the Filipino people!

  5. go loren!

    go for truth!

    not for tooooooooot!

    you have my support as always!

    miriam santiago for president!

    loren legarda for vice-president!

    the best tag!

  6. What did Chiz do for you to vote him? Just because he’s got great charisma and he’s one with the youth make him a good leader and a good president already? Please do not bad mouth Sen. Legarda, she has done more for the country and the environment more than you guys can do in your lifetime. Go research first on the backgrounds of the politicians before making such remarks. Don’t just rely on their charm, how good they speak and how many times they have appeared on tv. Research on the things that they have accomplished while in power.
