Join the draft Hagel movement!

There is much that we all can do now to help the draft Hagel movement.

First and foremost is to contact Senator Hagel and urge him to run for President. You can either email him or can fill out the contact form on his Senate website.

Second, join in the movement. Networking is critical. Fill out the form on the right side of the page so we can build a list of supporters. Also, join one (or more) of the many groups in the movement to talk to other supporters (Google Group, Yahoo Group, Myspace Group, or one of the Facebook groups). We also are making a push to build state by state networks, so please feel free to join the group for your state (CA, CO, FL, IL, MD, MO, NY, OH, SC, TN, TX, VA). If there isn't one for your state, request one and I'll make one.

Third: spread the word. Talk to people about Chuck Hagel and discuss why he will make a great President. Also, share your reasons for supporting Chuck Hagel here; we'd love to hear why you like Senator Hagel. You'd be amazed at how much impact just talking to people has.

Fourth: related to spreading the word, 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 it is critical. 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.

A fifth way 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, and/or to his Senate campaign. Any money in his Senate campaign can be transferred to a Presidential campaign.

Sixth is to 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, add a banner or a link to this site ( and others that support Chuck Hagel. If you have a blog, post about Chuck Hagel.

If anyone has other ideas, please share them.

I can tell you I'm extremely excited about the prospect of Chuck Hagel running. But you're right, we've got to get the word out about our guy and make this happen. I really think our nation is at a crossroads right now, and this is perhaps one of the more critical junctures we've faced in our history. Checking the political landscape I can't find a candidate I think is more suitable that Senator Hagel.

we have to get a Connecticut group going-after the Lamont/Lieberman campaign there are a ton of independents looking for a new candidate they could fight for
