Wyclef Officially Stops Trying to Be President of Haiti

Sad day, folks: Wyclef Jean has officially ended his awesomely quixotic campaign for the Haitian presidency. In a statement, Wyclef says, "This was not an easy conclusion to reach. Some battles are best fought off the field, and that is where we take this now. Our ultimate goal in continuing the appeal was to further the people’s opportunity to freely participate in a free and fair democratic process." Go gently into that good night, Wyclef for President tag. [AllHipHop]
