Apparently Wyclef Jean was Serious about that President Thing

31 Jul

The Huffington Post:

Singer Wyclef Jean is considering a run for president of Haiti but has not decided whether to seek a five-year term as leader of the quake-ravaged nation, the musician’s family said Monday.

There have been rumors for some time the Haitian-born entertainer might enter the 2010 presidential contest, ever since his 2007 appointment as ambassador-at-large for the Caribbean nation by President Rene Preval, who cannot seek re-election.

In a statement e-mailed to reporters, the family said, “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 … If and when a decision is made, media will be alerted immediately.

Admit it, you didn’t actually think the guy would ever be president, did you?  I mean, it was just a song with political motives, right?  Apparently not.  Good for him, here’s to Wyclef.
