As things stand today, the Poe camp is determined to field Senator Grace Poe for President, WITH or WITHOUT an endorsement from President Aquino. The belief is that since Senator Grace is leading in the surveys, there would be no reason for her to slide down to Vice President as contemplated by the die-hard Liberal Party Mar Roxas rah rah boys. Considering the fact too that former Senator Mar Roxas is far behind in the Presidential survey (overtaken even by upstart Mayor Rordrigo Duterte, with Poe in number one and Binay in number two positions), Poe will not willingly yield the standard bearer position to 2010 Vice Presidential losing candidate, Mar Roxas. A Poe versus Roxas fight would certainly split the Liberal Party and the Administration Coalition since the more practical traditional politicians and political butterflies would tend to side with the candidate with the greater chance at electoral victory. Anyway, it would just be a few more weeks before President Aquino announces his choice of the candidate that would succeed him (or to put it more bluntly, try to succeed him since there is no guarantee of victory for his choice).
