But that does not mean there is no positive in the mixture
Of course, if both don’t see eye to eye, commission of corruption is very hard to do. Connivance or complicity to commit wrongdoing is next to impossible because teamwork is limited to good governance. Wholesale deception is also avoided because each acts as a critic or inspector of the other.
The president doesn’t have to cover-up for the vice-president, and so with the vice-president not making him/herself as the fall guy every time the president makes mistakes
Now, to the possible Leni-Sara team up. I’m not optimistic that it will be different from the Digong-Leni combination. And I’m sure a lot of us here knew why it can’t be a team that the country will benefit from.
I’m with you, joeam. leni and sara will not work well together, so different in temperament and are likely to clash head on. sara has problem with honesty and I seriously doubt if sara can play 2nd fiddle to leni or take direction from leni, as drama queen (duterte said of sara!) sara is likely to mukmuk when she cannot get her own way, mayhap become belligerent and sabotage leni as well.
leni will be spending more time making sure sara toe the onerous line taken by our country, instead of full on managing and overseeing the welfare of our country and the well being of our people.
similarly, bbm is weakened muscles coordination that xandro sometimes has to take over bbm’s place at some sortie. sara is pulling the strings, bbm happy to tag along, lol! sara can certainly work with a weakened partner whose ethics are severely compromised the likes of bbm; but may feel threatened and may well resent a stronger, more astute, more competent partner with strong moral values the likes of leni.
sara as vice to leni? I prefer kiko. kiko has leni’s back, can be trusted, is supportive of leni and will not stab leni at the back. kiko can Idaho car title and loans take a back seat to leni; sara most certainly can’t is what I think.
“VP Leni and Inday Sara are BFFs.” – LCpl_X () -– That’s the bone of your opinion. Where’s the meat? We cannot digest bones. ??
But the main issue is whether the president-elect and the vice-president-elect, both from different or rival parties, can work cordially and in-harmony together. My view is, it depends. If we based our experience to that of Duterte and Robredo, it looks like a Leni-Sara will go down the drain.
Sara will not allow Leni to hound his father about the shenanigans that happened under his watch
Sara will surely be unfavorable on Leni putting BBM and his family on the right place. And Leni might feel awkward working with the daughter of a man who mistreated her in the past.
But in my experience, once you’ve had Orange Chicken with someone (photo above), you tend to be friends for life.
The question is if support for Robredo breaks down on issues as vested interests attack her for making unpopular decisions. So if giving Sara a Cabinet position is unpopular, do some pinks turn against her. Then, next issue, more turn against her. Then, in the end, everyone is snarling, like with Aquino. Or do pinks respect Robredo as much as she respects others, even those they don’t like. And give her some wiggle room.
that picture above of leni and shaven head sara is 6 yrs old, goes back 2015 before sara’s dad become president, and before leni become vice president. that pic is a bit scary, reminiscent of bad feng sui: sara’s kubyertos pointing daggers at leni, whereas leni’s kubyertos are blocking off the effect. sara in an emperor position (closer to the camera) her right hand up like a microphone – listen to me! her left hand clinched reinforcing the daggerlike kubyertos. with both hands out and fisted, sara’s stance is pugilistic and not ‘open’ to leni.
