Of the four likely presidential candidates in 2004, we have so far heard a clear, consistent expression of opposition to the impeachment of Chief Justice Hilario Davide only from Raul Roco.

Fernando Poe Jr. and Panfilo Lacson have both kept their mouths shut. President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo first hemmed and hawed and claimed neutrality when the articles of impeachment passed the house last week.

She did materialize at the flag-raising ceremony at the Supreme Court last Monday, October 27. But that looked like, at best, an attempt to give the lie to Senator Joker Arroyo
