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!
