Wyclef For President!

President of Haiti, that is.

The singer, who’s originally from Haiti, has been heavily involved in providing relief for the earthquake victims ever since it happened. Now it looks like he’s going to take that aid up a level by running for president!  Sure, he might have had one or two semi-shady events that occurred with his charity for Haiti, but it’s cool, I’m sure he’d do a much better job running the whole country.

Nothing has been set in stone yet – Wyclef told CNN that right now, he’s still just considering it.  He’s already filled out the paperwork though, and his foundation released this statement that serves to beat around the bush some more:

“Wyclef’s commitment to his homeland and its youth is boundless, and he will remain its greatest supporter regardless of whether he is part of the government moving forward. At this time, Wyclef Jean has not announced his intent to run for Haitian president. If and when a decision is made, media will be alerted immediately.  Please let us know if we can help with anything else.”

This should turn out wonderfully.  The election is in November, so we should be hearing relatively soon about Wyclef’s decision.  I’m going to go ahead and make a list of “Gone Till November” jokes, just in case.
