As I look over the leading candidates for president of the United States, I and many I have talked with have the common reaction: "none of the above."

After a long look for a quality write-in candidate who can inspire engagement in the political process, Chuck Hagel came to mind. With Hagel's Republican roots yet independent bold character, an internationalist's vision, solid financial discipline and experience, we have the man the nation can rally around and gather a winning write-in campaign. He is the sensible alternative to what the major political parties have presented as the best they have to offer. I challenge this nation to do better -- say none of the above and mount a winning national write-in campaign with Hagel as the sensible alternative.

Gordon Shaw, Lincoln
