I admire Wyclef Jean's dedication to Haiti, the country of his birth and all the good works he has backed to help matters in Haiti. As president, however, I have to agree with this:
But Camille Chalmers, director of the Haitian Platform to Advocate for Alternative Development, said Mr. Jean’s candidacy showed the bankruptcy of Haitian politics.
“It’s a catastrophe,” he said, groaning. “It’s a reflection of the weakness of the political class of Haiti that the system is at the mercy of a mediagenic person who flies in from abroad.”
With all due respect to Mr. Jean, this is more cult of personality madness that Haiti does not need. Let's hope he rethinks things. He can do more good out of politics than in politics.
