If Grace Poe And Bongbong Marcos Are Elected President And Vice President, One Of Them Has To Step Down

imageMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Now that the Philippine Supreme Court has removed all legal impediments to Senator Grace Poe’s candidacy for president, it is time to look forward to the May 9, 2016 elections.

Poe, the consistent frontrunner in national polls, was previously disqualified by the Commission on Elections by virtue of her being a foundling as well as questions regarding her residency.

Earlier, The Adobo Chronicles reported that vice presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos has admitted and is standing by his statements that he and Poe are siblings.  It has been rumored for quite some time  that Poe, who was adopted by actors Fernando Poe, Jr. and Susan Roces, was an illegitimate child of Ferdinand E. Marcos with Rosemary Sonora, Roces’ sister.

All eyes are thereforce focused on both the presidential and vice presidential race.  If Poe is elected president and Marcos wins the vice presidency, one of them has to step down.

Constitutional experts say that the two cannot sit as president and vice president simultaneously because of conflict of interest as well as laws against nepotism.

So Poe is hoping that Marcos is not elected vice president and Marcos is hoping that Poe fails to clinch the presidency.

Poe and Marcos are running under different political parties.  In the Philippines, voters can choose their president from one party and the vice president from another.

Sibling rivalry is real.  Even in politics.

BREAKING: Donald Trump Just Endorsed Sarah Palin For VP

AMES, Iowa (The Adobo Chronicles) – If you are one of those people who wondered why Sarah Palin would endorse someone like Donald Trump to become president of the United States, wonder no more.

It’s the economy, stupid.

You invest so that you gain.

Lo and behold, Palin scored a huge return on her investment in less than 24 hours after she endorsed Trump at a campaign rally in Iowa.

Today, the Republican presidential frontrunner returned the favor and endorsed Palin to become the next vice president.

“She may have failed the first time,” Trump said, “but times are a-changing.  American voters are now more open to electing stupid people like myself.  If I win the nomination, I know whom I will pick for my vice presidential running mate. A Trump-Palin  team would be unbeatable!”

Birds of the same feather tend to flock together. And they dream big together, too.
