Total Recall

This morning’s showdown of Manny “Pacman“ Pacquiao and David Diaz billed as “Lethal Combination” can be an apt description of the team–up between V-Gov. Julius Caesar Herrera and Provincial Administrator Tomas Abapo, Jr. for Bohol governor and vice governor, respectively.

Except that the two are not in each other’s throat as the Pacquiao-Diaz fight, the combination of their political ambitions may just be as lethal, this according to pundits who were asked to comment of a billing of the political kind.

Political pairings of  probables gunning for the top two elective provincial officials  gained premium after a leading weekly made an in-dept story of who’s running and who’s not in the 2010 local elections.

If plans do not go haywire, a tandem between Herrera and Abapo in 2010 may be a force to reckon with knowing that it is a dream team of  west meeting east. Herrera is from Calape while Abapo is from vote-rich Ubay.

But here’s the rub. No matter how palatable the combination  looks on the surface, the key to victory of the two top provincial contenders will all depends upon which part of the two’s political bread  is battered.

As if wielding a Swiss knife to butter the equation, the blessing of  Gov. Erico Aumentado is the be-all and end-all of all these posturings.

Even Cong. Edgar Chatto who is said to be casting a moist eye of the gubernatorial plum is also courting the support of Aumentado.

For Herrera, after assuming the role of supporting cast for nine years, his positioning to become the next governor is unmistakable. Very visible even if the 2011 polls is still one and a half years away, there’s no mistaking that Herrera is there to claim the position that he has been dreaming for the past nine years or so.

Aumentado’s clout is needed by both gubernatorial pretenders considering his hold in the captive votes of the second district.

In the past three elections where he ran for governor, his vaunted bailiwick in the second district proved to be the winning edge even if he only fared fairly in the first and third districts.

Is the Aumentado sting still in contention come 2010?

Any jaded observer following the storied political career of the  poor boy from Ubay will  no doubt swear before the grave of his ancestors that Aumentado is far from being a spent force.

Why is Abapo part of the Herrera-Aumentado equation? If Aumentado is true to his Ubayano trait, then Abapo is a cinch  of a vice gubernatorial material.

Representing the east in a partnership with Herrera, Abapo, a lawyer, is also a popular choice considering his exposure as provincial administrator.

A problem will crop up however if a quid pro quo is hatched to accommodate graduating second district congressman Roberto Cajes.

A compromise arrangement, Aumentado will have no choice but to accommodate Cajes’ “temporary shelter” as Bohol vice governor if Aumentado can clinch a deal that will prevent the congressman’s wife to take his post.     

With Trinidad Mayor Judith “Babie” Cajes positioning as her husband’s successor, only Aumentado’s insistence to return to his old post can persuade the lady mayor from pursuing her congressional aspiration.

Although Aumentado is still coy about his future political plan after practically assuming all the provincial and congressional  positions up for grabs, the prospect of returning to his old post which remains lucrative as ever to this day, is still a juicy option.

If so, then Abapo will have to rethink his own plans to pave the way for Aumentado’s comeback bid. - Bohol Sunday Post
