Uncle Sam's Dilemma
U.S. is in a quandary of late on what measures to take in the face of the
political crisis hounding President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Just when the
President – under siege on all fronts from left to right over allegations
of fraud in the 2004 presidential election – appears to be on the way out,
former President Fidel V. Ramos and House Speaker Jose de Venecia come to
her rescue with their proposal to prop Macapagal-Arroyo up as “caretaker
president” until a new charter is drafted and elections are held. The
offer is made just as the U.S. appears wavering on whether to drop her or
Salungguhit literally means to
underline; figuratively, to
underscore or highlight.
