    The removal of D. R. is justified. But I seriously doubt if there is anyone else who really is a much BETTER option to be the next president. Any suggestions?

    The PMDB already lost one chance - during their Party meeting last week - to break away from Dilma and the PT......but as the country keeps on sinking under her incompetent leadership, I'm pretty sure it's only a matter of time - a few weeks maximum - before the PMDB will sever all ties, in order to not sink with her.

    Temer may have to wait forever because - sadly - D. R. will continue as a puppet-president till Lula/PT returns to rule Brazil for a few more decades.

    And by the way, forget about cheering and getting over-excited about keeping all the culprits in jail. ALL the crooks will be free AND active - as usual very soon. They are most likely to change the laws, regulations, ministers and even the constitution; in THEIR favor!
