I can understand the argument most people have regarding the candidacy of Wycleff Jean at the highest office in the country that we all love, Haiti.

When one says it does not required a formal education to be president of Haiti, this statement does not hold water.

Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere.

A country where the life expectancy is only 53% and the infant mortality is extremely high. About 12% of children diet before they reach their 5th birthday.

Furthermore, the illiteracy rate is about 65to 75%.

Just to cite a few of the problems of our nation.

To compile on the problems, we are emotionally envy to put Mr. Jean who until recently in 2009 appreciates education by attending Berkley School of Music to study ear training, improvisation and guitar.

Lately the conversation regarding the election of Haiti has forced us to include wyclef in the midst.

Why?

He is rapper who has accomplished great things in the world of music.

He has done a super job during the January 12 earth quake that devastated Port-au-Prince and its surroundings.

Does that give him carte blanche to escalate at the supreme magistrate of Haiti?
