His first try might have ended in a slap fight with Sean Penn, but that’s not going to stop Wyclef Jean from running for President of Haiti in 2015. “I’m not a quitter, and the most important thing for me is, I think, to move Haiti forward. It’s gonna take modern thinking” Jean told Hip-Hop Weekly, “So, if all goes well, I plan to definitely come back in five years and give it another shot.” Jean then tore the plastic wrap off his copy of How To Become The President Of Haiti For Dummies and turned to the first page.
Wyclef lost the chance to run for the 2010 presidential election earlier this year after the electoral commission realized being the spokeperson for Ritz Crackers does not actually qualify someone to lead a country. We’re not going to lie; Jean’s recent hospitalization for stress doesn’t exactly fill us with a lot of faith. Because you know what’s probably the most stressful job on the face of the planet right now? Being the president of Haiti. We wish Wyclef well in his pursuits, and hope he succeeds as president if he ever manages get elected. And, hey, if nothing else: free Ritz for everybody!
