I've been following the stories about Wyclef Jean and his bid for President of Haiti ever since it first broke. I wrote a previous blog about it last week.
In that blog I merely wanted to let everyone on Mancouch know about it, like a PSA. I had no opinions about Jean's decision. And now, I still don't know what to think. Part of me thinks he could do it, with the right intentions and the right advisers and the right plan. Part of me thinks that he can't, and to be fair, that no one can.
But I was taken aback when Pras, a member of the famous recording group the Fugees, gave an interview to the Associated Press about why he thinks Wyclef Jean is not the right choice for Haiti. (I must admit I know nothing about the former relationship between the two men, whether they were rivals or best friends.)
For your consideration, feel free to view the video clip and leave your comments, while I continue to form my own opinion as the story continues.
How do you feel about a member of the Fuggees voicing his opposition to Wyclef jean?
