    If Lugo could be a candidate that would be great! It happened in the Phillipines, where a President can only serve one term but the impeached Joseph Estrada was able to stand again on the exact grounds Lugo is talking about. I'm not surprised or sorry that right wing thug lost his comeback bid, but Lugo is a different case entirely =) If not he'll surely have a good “personal delegate”, a Campora to his Peron, and can do great work as part of a new left majority in the Senate =)
