Maybe Clef was joking around about being President of the U.S. of A. in his music and pre-Obama Rock The Vote spot, but the multi-talented Fugees frontman looks poised to run for the top spot in his homeland of Haiti. It's hard to imagine anybody inexperienced in politics wanting the job with the country being in such disarray following the massive earthquake in January, but I guess since he was at the forefront of the relief effort it shouldn't be TOO big a surprise...
According to a CNN interview, Wyclef has been considering running for a while and had already completed the paperwork in June that would be necessary to enter. He hasn't made any official declaration yet, but sources expect him to announce his candidacy before the August 7 deadline passes. Given his connections and resources (and popularity with the people of Haiti), he's a good bet to win it in November if he does run! Hopefully, over a decade of dealing with industry rule # 4080 will prepare Clef for the level of sheist and graft he is likely to encounter as a head of state...Choose your staff wisely, Clef!!!
