    EDSA II was like 7-8 years ago so this is from distant memory:

    It was the impeachment trial 11-10 vote in favor of not opening the envelope containing evidences that is said to be against Erap that sparked teh EDSA II. (By the way Erap is in impeachment trial due to plunder and corrupt charges. Gov. Chavit Singson of Ilocos prov. was the key person during the trial. He said he had given Erap some 400 million payoff money for illegal gambling profit.) That night of the 11-10 vote, protesters gathered at the EDSA calling Erap to resign. The number of protesters grew each day. The protest became even stronger when the news on TV broke that the Air Force withdrew support from Erap and pledged allegiance to Gloria. Next day, the Supreme Court declared the office of the presidency as vacant and Chief Justice Davide swore in Gloria as the president of the Philippines. TV showed Erap and his family are leaving the Malacanang but that gave some confusion if Erap really resigned since Erap never clarified if he did.

    He did not duck.

    The powers that be would not rather forget that he voted to oust the Americans from Clark and Subic. That he is ready to confront the rebellion in the South with a macho stand, going for an all out war that would have pulled the Americans into a confrontation that at the time they would not rather get involved with.

    He became president, seems to me that is enough here, now there are calls for Gloria to quit, nothing changes

    he wasn't as good as Arroyo in covering up all his mistakes and underground activities.

    he was caught by the Filipino people and he admitted it.

    he did not live up to the expectations of the Filipino. he taught of himself and his family but not his countrymen.
