What can I do to help (part 2)?

Now for part two in our series on what you can do to help put Chuck Hagel on the road to the White House. (Part one is here.)

A key element is simply spreading the word. Chuck Hagel doesn't have the national name recognition that other potential candidates have. Talk to people about Chuck Hagel and discuss why he might make a good President.

Also, buy merchandise and get his name and the idea of him running for President into people's heads. At this point getting people to think about the possibility is key. Also, getting those people that are likely to volunteer on a campaign or donate money to think about Hagel for President is important, as they are more likely to be thinking about it earlier than your average person.

U.S. lawmakers face anthem challenge

WASHINGTON, May 9 (UPI) -- With a fuss about a Spanish "Star Spangled Banner," ABC News found mixed success while checking whether U.S. lawmakers can handle the song in English.

Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio, and Rep. Gene Green, D-Texas, both easily passed the test, ABC reported, but many lawmakers begged off when asked to display their singing talents.

"I can probably sing it with a group," said Rep. Robert Aderholt, R-Ala. "If I was in a group, I would sing it."

Rep. Ron Kind, D-Wis., gave the excuse that his singing voice was "not that good."

Rep. Robert Ney, R-Ohio, said he was busy talking to his wife on the phone while Rep. Jim Costa, D-Calif., and Rep. Paul Gillmor, R-Ohio, both had other places to be, ABC said.

On the Senate side, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., both passed the test with flying colors.

Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., had to go to lunch and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, begged off due to a bad singing voice.

Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., balked as well, saying, "I am like 61 percent of Americans. If I had to get up and recite the national anthem, I would fail miserably."
