Wyclef Jean and other celebrities who should be heads of state

Vote for him — one time, one time.

OK, so everyone will probably hate that joke. But I couldn't resist now that ex-Fugee Wyclef Jean has said he's considering running for president of Haiti. AP reports that Jean, 37, who was born on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince, could seek a five-year term during the 2010 presidential contest, set for Nov. 28. Jean's brother, Sam Jean, told eonline.com Tuesday that a presidential run is likely and that his brother is putting together campaign paperwork to file by Aug. 7. So which other celebs should lead a country? Could George Clooney oversee Italy, where his girlfriend is from? Could Bjork take Iceland out of economic dire straits? And how about Bryan Adams taking the helm in Canada just so the U.S. can get rid of him?
