dumb... didn't he steal money from his haiti or something? scandalous
sorry haiti charity yes... i dunno i'm not down with it... another stupid celebrity trying to get attention and pretending to be a decent human being
Don't know if it's a good idea, but how can he NOT get elected? He's like Haiti's Bob Marley, everybody loves him there! I know he is a great supporter of humanitarian organizations, a great musician and a very intelligent person. But are these the makings of a great politician? One that Haiti needs during it's most desperate hour? I honestly can't say.
I've recently read that he will be unable to run as president because he hasn't lived in the country for five years prior to running. I believe he will be appealing this decision but I certainly think that it wouldn't be a bad thing if he couldn't run. Haiti needs a really solid, honest, bureaucrat in office right now to tidy up the mess, not a untested celebrity who can only talk the talk and has no political experience.
I don't know about Wyclef Jean specifically....but in general I feel that it's dangerous when celebrities start to act like they are experts on something besides their craft/celebrity status.
Angelina Jolie strikes me as someone who could be an expert due to all the humanitarian work she's done over the years.
