Between a rock and a hard place....
Tomorrow, after a long drawn trial which has lasted for almost six years, the Sandiganbayan is finally scheduled to render its verdict on the plunder case of former President Joseph Estrada.
Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place.
Acquit Estrada, and EDSA II will be reduced to nothing more than a sham political event, an example of how extra-Constitutional means were adopted for removing from office without due process what would amount to be a President innocent of any wrongdoing.
Convict Estrada, and earn the ire of perhaps millions of Erap (and even FPJ) supporters who believe their idol to be innocent of all charges, convicted only as a sacrificial lamb if only to justify his removal from office and the "unlawful" assumption of then Vice President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to the Presidency.
Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
And it's all happening tomorrow.
Watch the news tomorrow people. Whatever happens, whatever the consequences, it will be history in the making.
