Bill Clinton meets with Martelly and Manigat Behind Closed Doors

Former US president Bill Clinton was in Haiti over the weekend and he met with presidential candidates Michel Martelly and Mirlande Manigat behind closed doors to discuss the future of Haiti.

Bill Clinton and Michel Martelly

The associated press reports...

...Clinton met separately behind closed doors Mirlande Manigat, a former first lady, and singer Michel "Sweet Micky" Martelly...

...Clinton, the U.N. special envoy to Haiti, said he had no preferred candidate. He said he was careful not to do anything in his role as co-chairman of an interim reconstruction commission to compromise his ability to help Haiti...

Clinton told reporters...

"If we can continue to work very hard and speed up decisions - and we plan to do so this year - that will help whoever wins be a more effective president"

What do you think about that?

Hey You! Yes You, My dear Sisters and Brothers,

If Bill Clinton who fought to bring Aristide back to power with the aid of the United States Military could hug and smile with him, why can't you smile for his Presidency and hug his wonderful dream for Haiti.

I suppose if Sweet Mickey was saying weird things and acting silly everybody would be paying attention.

We all understand some the important issues with surrounding aristide and his administration.

But it is time to stop blaming others for our lack of devotion and vision.

Let us be clear, if aristide wants to fly to Haiti, he should go the South African Airport with a big cross around his neck, with his family and important papers to declare a hunger strike in protesting and demanding the right to fly back to his country.
