loren legarda declares she is a vice-presidentiable, with teodoro or escudero?

loren legarda is once again in good dramatic form. she announced, actually she said she was kinda “forced” to announce that she is running for vice-president. she made it appear she was not intending to announce it, it was just that a reporter asked her the question and she answered.

the thing is she did not say who she will be running with. when she said that, i started to bite my nails. it was such a dramatic moment that no other cliff hanger on tv can beat her moment. after this announcement, i was reduced to tears.

MANILA, Philippines–Senator Loren Legarda on Friday formally declared her intention to run for vice president in the 2010 elections.

Legarda made the announcement during a press conference at the Rizal Park at the launch of her outreach program dubbed “Lingkod Loren.’’.

Her announcement came just hours after Local Government Secretary Ronaldo Puno withdrew his vice presidential bid under the administration’s Lakas-Kampi Christian Muslim Democrats tickets.

Legarda did not say who her presidential candidate would be. But even before Puno’s withdrawal, some administration members were already pushing for Legarda to be the running mate of Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro.

The senator repeatedly said, however, that she would stay with the opposition.

Legarda is a member of the Nationalist People’s Coalition, which is expected to endorse the presidential bid of Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero.
