Is this crony abandoning Ate Glue?

Now that Ate Glue has vowed to ensure a peaceful turnover of power to the next chief executive on June 30, assuring critics that she would not stay a day longer in office, should we heave a sigh of relief? Remember she also said during a Rizal Day speech she wouldn’t run again for President.
But taking her word for whatever face value we can muster, perhaps she really is leaving. I was told, she would rather remain glued but things have so evolved that there is no turning back. Look, it was pointed out, Ate Glue is flying to Spain after attending an Asean meeting in Hanoi. There is no official reason for the visit to Spain, a favorite destination of Ate Glue and Spain is a long way from Hanoi to be a side trip. Bakit kaya?
No wonder even some of those close to her are going ahead with their own plans in an Ate Glue-less world. Take the case of a prominent crony who was even the chief financial officer of Ate Glue’s personal political party. He has virtually unglued himself from her and, if the grapevine is to be believed, even trying to get into the good graces of the top presidential contenders. My sources in both camps confirm approaches were made but couldn’t (or wouldn’t) confirm if the offered political donations were accepted.
