Although expected, it was still surprising to see Gov. Ed Panlilio among five presidential aspirants during leader’s forum, Countdown 2010, hosted by ABS-CBN.
His presence had given me strong feeling that he has strong desire to be the next president. Gov. Ed Panlilio seemed to be inserting himself to the president-to-be short list.
I thought the first Filipino Roman Catholic priest elected as provincial governor in the Philippines will continue to serve Pampanga, the province that gives him chance to get noticed in entire country. I imagined that Gov. Panlilio will campaign for his second term. But I was fooled with my expectations that Among Ed will prove his worth in Pampanga provincial capitol and the worth of his suspension as priest.
