It would be pretty incredible if he could pull this off and no one can argue that he doesn't have the country's best interests at heart.

Wyclef Jean has been at the forefront of the relief effort for Haiti since the country was shattered by the massive earthquakes this year. Now, he will formally announce his bid for presidency of the country!

Wyclef's reps confirmed he's submitted paperwork to run in the Nov. 28 election and his family has expressed their full support of his decision. It's a totally noble move, but there is some conflict. His former Fugees bandmate Pras is backing another candidate!

Whoops! Oh well, can't get everyone on your side, Wyclef!

Hey, maybe you could get Lauren Hill to campaign with you?! Two against one! We like those odds!

    makes perfect sense. It's always been a corrupt country.



  2. 2

    how embarrassing (and typical) to misspell the name of a superstar.

    I bet you don't know how to pronounce Wyclef Jean either. You can probably say "Lauryn" correctly.



  3. 3

    Didin't this guy scam a charity not long back? Setting him up as president, yeah, great idea.



  4. 4

    No Haitian Patriot in their right mind would ever vote for that self important douche.

    LAURYN*

    like he knows ANYTHING ABOUT RUNNING A COUNTRY. He can't even run a charity legitimately. Maybe he can be president, and have Brangelina as his VPs and George Clooney as his Secretary of State. So what they are from there, they butt into everything and I am sure they will support his run, even though he knows NOTHING ABOUT RUNNING A COUNTRY……

    If Wyclef can't keep the Fugees together, then how is he going to lead a country?

    Cake Much?

    *lauryn hill.

    maybe they will listen to him to bring change to haitian politics..third world people think the world of American celebrities. Somethimes a well educated person can't get people to follow 'him'. He should bring more democratic, accountable governance in Haiti if it means other ppl doing the job and he being a figurehand is fine in my book!



  10. 10

    just what the world needs, another corrupt black president. We've got our own



  11. 11

    because he's so politically active



  12. 12

    Wyclef's fund is a slush fund, but since the French were kicked out Haiti has always had a dictator, why do you think Jean is here in the US!!



  13. 13

    I can see where being part of a so-so band and funding your lifestyle out of the proceeds of a "charity" would make him a capable president of a corrupt nation. That would be like Perez running for governor of Puerto Rico. What a joke.

    barf

    He's perfect for the job



  16. 16

    If it means he'll leave the US, I'm all for it. In fact, he should take ALL the Haitians back with him! I'll even pay the plane fare if it means getting all those nasty, dirty, criminals out of here.

    Why not??? I think he would be perfect!!
