Congrats Sean Penn you idiot. You don't want any other person tied to Haiti except you. Forget the publicity he could have brought and the help he could have gotten from the publicity.
Tell me this. How many of you can name of the President of Haiti now? How about their last President?
Didn't think so.
If anyone could have gotten some help down there, he could have.

Wyclef has no business running for President of Haiti. He couldn't even keep "The Fugees" together, so how in the hell is he going to run an entire country.

Can we just sink Haiti into the ocean now? Couldn't care less about the worlds largest garbage dump we call Haiti.

I think he would do good there. Maybe this wasn't his time and he can prepare for the next time around.

Such arroganance. If he doesn't even know the qualifications to be President, why would he think he has enough intelligence to run?? Or maybe he thought because he's a rapper they would welcome him with open arms, What a Hollywood douche bag!! We don't care what Stars (or wanna-be's) say.we just want to watch them act like idiots..kinda like going to the Zoo and watching the Monkeys throw Stuff> Soooo funny !!!!
