Wyclef Jean and Haiti

I bash Haiti a lot in this blog: it’s the closest example to SUU of how to do everything wrong with your country.

Now Wyclef Jean is running for president of Haiti.

The pros for this seem to be that he lived in Haiti until he was 9, that he speaks Haitian creole, and he’s famous.

The cons are best expressed by this quote from the comments to the linked article: “No experience. No plan. No education. Can’t speak the language let alone proper English plus a history of not being able manage his own personal affairs based on foreclosures, IRS tax liens and his nonprofit scandal.”
