      No, Kayne West is a racist goof-ball. Wyclef will be fine if he surrounds himself with passionate and experienced advisors.

    Great. Just what Haiti needs. An untrained, inexperienced leader.

      I'd rather have someone that has a heart and is looking to be there for the people, than someone who is only president for the money and to lead the US into Socialism. Cough cough.

      He can only hope there isn't a group of people calling attention to his inexperience, who get called racists for daring to bring it up. It would be just awful if he were to be elected, found to be beyond incompetent, and then have to listen to "told you so" for years. Just awful. Good thing that hasn't happened here in the USA, am I right! Darn straight I'm right! Somebody repeal that term limit for Presidents, we need to keep this airplane pointed straight towards the ground until the job is DONE!

    I don't know he would probably be a lot better than the corrupt people in power there now. He is someone who actually cares for his people and would do anything to help them, even he does lack the experience.

      I said pretty much in another post, Joe. It would be really difficult to do worse than the governing that country's seen throughout its existence. Jean also could bring the celebrity factor to the office and be a better solicitor of financial aid. If he's in it for the right reasons, he might just be able to turn their financial situation around.

      Oops...that'd be "said pretty the same" in another post. Sorry.

      My words are getting eaten...I even double-checked that last one before I posted it. Trying to correct the correction now. (I swear I'm not drunk! LOL)

    "CNN has confirmed that a source close to Wyclef Jean says Jean will announce ..." If you read it closely that doesn't confirm anything, just the fact that you heard it.

    @ NKTC12, it could be better than the trained, experienced ones it has had before. A younger person who not connected to the elite and their stuffy ideas might be helpful.

    OMG this is a complete JOKE. HILLARIOUS. Wyclef, your heart is in the right place, but I highly doubt you will get anything done in Haiti. As he says in the song, he'll be 'gone 'til November'.

    Why not - can't do any worse than the corrupt governments they've had in the past. If his heart's in it, maybe he'll finally be the honest one in office to bring that country out of such abject poverty.
