Call employer. If unemployed, family members.

I got a few C++ questions, then a question on sorting algorithms then a brainteaser. The brainteaser went as follows: Three people are given hats. Each hat is either red or blue, chosen at random. Each person can see the other 2 hats, but not their own. They each must simultaneously either guess their own hat's color, or pass. No communication is allowed, although they can agree on a strategy ahead of time. What strategy will give them the best chances of at least one person guessing right, and nobody guessing wrong?
