    Isn't this the guy who's Haiti Fund organization came under scrutiny for mis-managing funds? Yeah... he'd be perfect for the job.

      I agree, something isn't right. He's a bad liar. If people aren't supposed to question you because of how "passionate" you are... you're lying! He's just looking for a brighter spotlight. Good luck in politics though!

    Read a piece about what he's already done for Haiti and how he's viewed by the people there. This guy can leverage some serious power to help rebuild that country. If he runs, he will win.

      Before the Earthquake he spends so much time for haiti, so much money and so much love for his native
      homeland. Click on http://www.yele.org and have a look about his work.

    I guess Wyclef was thinking that it couldn't get any worse for Haiti anyway.

    He is not ready to be president of Haiti. He should go to business school and learn how to run a business before running for president. Jean Should use his celebrity to help bring investment in Haiti. He will learn a hard lesson

    Have mixed feeling...But he cannot be worse than what we have now....The Haitian politicians have been so bad over the years... a new fresh voice and ideas for this country might be just what they need...

    Nice idea, he'll be overthrown in a matter of months if he tries to do anything significant and curtails the corruption of the elites.
