AMAZING ENRILE

November 17, 2008

In a weird turn of events, Senator Juan Ponce Enrile is suddenly Senate President.

This old political warrior would be President but for utter lack of charisma.  In elections, he almost always barely wins.  But a brilliant, foxy fellow this creature is.  He is attracted to power and gets to it only through patient waiting and positioning.  Traditional politician to the core, he jumps from one side to another side with the ease of an acrobat, mindful only of the principles of survival.  This latest blessing to his person seems  to have fallen on his lap by force of circumstance, with his little prodding, perhaps.  This is the highest political office he has come thus far.  Will he remain a loyal administration ally?  We’ll see.  Remember that he was Estrada’s party president chairman-emeritus before he jumped over to Gloria and changed his tune accordingly.  He certainly could do the reverse this time as casually as before.   Senator Panfilo Lacson is saying Malacañang has no hand in this.  If true, the days ahead are interesting to watch; these people know Sun Tzu and Machiavelli like the back of their hands.
