Remember when Wyclef Jean tried to run for President of Haiti?
And while there were many who opposed the idea, claiming that Wyclef was full of himself, there weren’t too many people recognizing that Wyclef has been working for years to help the Haitian people. Though he’s faced a great deal of scrutiny, his work with Yéle Haiti, The Timberland Company, and the World Food Programme have all brought relief to the Haitian people, as well as awareness to Americans. While technicalities meant that Jean was not eligible to be president, his desire to run was clearly based on an honest desire to do good.
Enjoy the Wyclef Jean song “If I Was President”, and of course, watch his If I Were President Video. And don’t forget to tell us what you would do if you were president. You can submit your video or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
