But she does still like your music, if that is any consolation.
Haiti’s representative in the Miss Universe competition, Sarodj Bertin, has come forward to announce that she is not backing Wyclef Jean's bid for presidency in Haiti. As a lawyer and a fierce loyal to her country, she isn't convinced that Wyclef has the political capabilities to handle the job. In a recent interview, she explained:
“I really admire Wyclef, he’s a great singer and a really recognized Haitian artist – but I do not know if he’s going to arrive to his political objectives. After the (earthquake), we need someone that really knows this position and has studied politics, and really knows Haitian society. We’re not in a place right now where we can just try people out. If Wyclef thinks he has the capacity then maybe he can arrive, I wish him good luck, but I think we need to look at really moving the country forward politically.”
Can't say that we argue with that. Though, in Wyclef's defense, he has a lot of industry pull in Hollywood. He might be able to transfer that into big things for Haiti.
Guess we'll just have to wait and see if his political dreams will come to fruition…and then what he'll actually do with all that power.
