    Wyclef Jean is no longer attempting to run for President of his native Haiti and it's not because Sean Penn scared him off with his inflammatory criticisms of Jean's political bid. A statement from Jean's publicist indicated that the singer is leaving Haitian politics behind in order to promote a new album. Jean was left off the ballot presumably because he did not meet eligibility requirements, as he spends most of his time residing in New Jersey and not Haiti.

    Are you interested in a new Wyclef Jean album? Do you think he did the right thing by abandoning his political campaign?
