Wyclef May Run for President

Nothing's been decided, but famous Haitian (and often questioned philanthropist) Wyclef Jean is considering running in the 2010 Haitian presidential election. (The elections are in November, but the deadline to declare is August 7.) A statement signed by Wyclef's family was released, saying, "Wyclef's commitment to his homeland and its youth is boundless, and he will remain its greatest supporter regardless of whether he is part of the government moving forward ... If and when a decision is made, media will be alerted immediately." Sort of sounds like a yes, right? Great, now that Fugees reunion will really never happen. [AP]
