Erap Ties Villar for 2nd Place!

Yegadz!!!!

Unbelievable!

This latest piece of news just might actually push me to vote for Noy. *groan* Funny how one’s perspective can shift so drastically, so quickly.

Before I saw this on the news last night, voting for Noy was not even close to being an option. It was either Dick or Gibo. Or, if I had allowed pragmatism to more heavily influence my decision-making process, perhaps Manny Villar as a ‘lesser evil’.

Come to think of it, I think vacillating and delaying the inevitable final decision on who to vote signifies many things. The fact that there’s no perfect candidate. The fact that all of them have things that work for and against them. The fact that it really entails a long-drawn-out decision-making process to arrive at a satisfying choice.

Beyond those obvious things, what is remarkable is that before this new piece of news, vacillating was actually still an option. When the Presidential seat seemed to be unmistakably waiting for just either Noy or Villar, while it inspired heated debates and rising tempers – we all knew (I think) at the back of our minds that either way, it wouldn’t be such a bad thing. Or to be more succinct about it – Noy or Villar as President wouldn’t be unacceptable.

With Erap back in the race with a strong fighting chance, therein lies the most unacceptable event of all: that he wins back the Presidential seat. It’s no different from the 2004 Elections when it was clearly just a race between GMA and FPJ.

Yegadz!!! And to think there were rumors a few weeks ago that a few days before the Elections, Erap will suddenly pull out of the race and endorse all his supporters to vote for Villar instead.

Well… that’s not an impossibility yet at this point, of course. Our political arena is as we already know, very much akin to an arena filled with circus freaks.

So here we are, 2 weeks before the elections and it seems like much is changing. If Erap continues his climb up the Presidential race, it’s a no brainer that Noy is without a doubt, the better choice.

So much for voting without  compromising.
