first, we lost robredo.
now, we get sereno.
parang sad pareho.
i hope sereno surprises us. otherwise the coincidence does not augur well for robredo’s legacy.
Low expectations ba tayo kay Sereno? Bakit naman? And what will it take for Sereno to pull a positive surprise?
Sereno’s appointment is the other side of the bad news, a good beginning. After the dark cloud of rain that poured over the hopes for a “daang matuwid” advocate, we can see a rainbow of hope. All the nominees were qualified, except that Sereno was the call of the hour, as Chinese proverbs has said a step backward to leap forward. Being both an academe in a business school and 18 years in the legal profession, she fits for the need of administrator to reform the judiciary system. I salute Pino’s best choice who herself was surprised.
i dont remember — why dont you like sereno? she did vote for land redistribution.
I presume you were searching for rhyme rather than sense? It appears to me that this was a good appointment. Chief Justice Sereno has the strength to speak her own mind, has a well-endowed sense of right and wrong, is unquestionably smart, and knows the law from having taught it for 20 years. I would not expect the president to appoint someone who is clearly an antagonist or even an unknown. I think this continues his pattern for hiring good people for important jobs. Then it is up to the people he hires to live up to his trust.
