What we can do now

Here are a few things that people can do now to help make the road to the White House a possibility for Chuck Hagel.

One of the key things that must be done is networking. A grassroots movement must be built with people able to communicate. To further that, fill out the form on the right hand side of this page. Also, join one of the Chuck Hagel for President Yahoo groups (Hagel for President, Missouri for Hagel, South Carolina for Hagel), or make your own. If you have other ideas for how to build a network, please share them.

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 voter.

One more way that you can help Chuck Hagel on the road to the White House is to donate money. Two ways to do this are to donate to his PAC, Sandhills, and/or to his Senate campaign.

Another thing that people can do is drive the Internet Buzz surrounding Chuck Hagel. There are numerous ways to do this. Everyone can vote for Chuck Hagel in online polls. Also, everyone can comment on blogs, expressing their support for Senator Hagel.

If you have a website or blog, make a link to this site ( and others that support Chuck Hagel. If you have a blog, post a blog post about Chuck Hagel. There are 2008 sites that track how much attention each of the possible candidates are getting on the web and in blogs.

If anyone else has ideas, please share them.
