Perhaps he will begin his term after he is released from prison for tax evasion.

Of course. Worked with many and sold the first house I ever owned to one.

Not that it matters but do you know any?

perhaps before making a judgement on Mr. Jean, one should see what he has to say.

(not saying it's a good thing, or a bad thing, just that he seems to have a pretty good take on the state of affairs in Haiti)

Anyone who is a citizen, born in the USA (News Flash - Hawaii is in the USA) can be president of this great country. Today that's an African-American, some day it will be a Mexican-American, maybe even an Indian-American. Imagine that! What the heck, we might even evolve enough to elect a woman! Progress. It's coming whether you are ready for it or not, caveman deo vindice!
