My apologies for passing out during the voting, but the voting continues. Impeachment is dead in the House.
The Congressional express was delayed long enough so that it’s ultimate objective, to reach the station safely before protests could gather, has failed. The train will reach the station but there is a substantial crowd to demonstrate indignation at its arrival. Cory Aquino and Susan Roces are there, on Commonwealth Avenue.
Fidel Ramos has called for a press conference at 2 pm or so. His solution? Charter change. But charter change has been hitched to the President, and the President is the one who has now polarized people. What remains unresolved, of course, is how far are those opposd to the President prepared to go? The Palace is counting on two weeks of fury, followed by opposition petering out.
What if the opposition doesn’t peter out? What then?
