SBY will be to be indonesia president again

Kenapa sby diyakini akan menang lagi?

Karena lawannya pasangan JK dan Wiranto yang terlihat kurang bergigi. Terlalu banyak kropos di kubu JK, dan terlalu lembutnya Wiranto.

Bagaimana dengan megawati?

Kalau melihat megawati yang masih mencari pasangan sepertinya tidak ada apa-apanya. Jika pun berdampingan dengan Prabowo rasa-rasanya tidak kuat ikatannya. Ambisi Prabowo yang ingin menjadi presiden terlalu besar, dan ini agak susah untuk dikompromikan. Kalaupun jadi mereka berpasangan rasa-rasanya rakyat sudah pernah melihat aksi megawati ketika jadi presiden.

Yang paling ditunggu cuma satu. Siapakah yang jadi wakilnya sby?

Dan satu lagi, apakah Megawati masih ngambek, jika kalah lagi dengan tidak mau datang ke istana ketika diundang mengikuti pelantikan presiden, Oktober nanti?
