It's ScuttleButton Time!

Scuttle Button Puzzle.

It is heart-rending and emotionally moving to see President Obama and former President Clinton doing what they can to help those who so desperately need it. Of course, I'm talking about Martha Coakley, the Democratic Senate candidate in Massachusetts.

Hopefully, before the president flies up to Boston on Sunday, he and the rest of the nation will find the time to figure out this week's ScuttleButton puzzle.

Here's how to do it: Every Friday on this blog, there are buttons displayed vertically. Simply take one word (or concept) per button, add 'em up, and, hopefully, you will arrive at a famous name or a familiar expression. (And seriously, by familiar, I mean it's something that more than one person on Earth would recognize.)

And don't focus on a political answer. It doesn't necessarily have to be political, though it could be.

A correct answer chosen at random gets his or her name in this column. Personally, I can't imagine a greater honor.

You can't use the comments box at the bottom of the page for your answer. Send submission (plus your name and city/state — you won't win without that) to politicaljunkie@npr.org.

Here's the answer to last week's puzzle.

Good luck, and happy Friday!

P.S. I usually reveal the answer — and announce the winner — in this space on Tuesdays. So you should get your answer in by then.
