    that a majority wanted Hanabusa. Well, she didn't get the most votes. Her seniority in the House, her seat on the House Armed Services Committee and the solid pair of Hawaiian women in the House were crucial in Abercrombie's and the state party's decision, IMO.

    Charges of racism or Schatz "not being Hawaiian" are pure speculation. The Hawai'i State Democratic Party and Gov. Abercrombie are trying to clean up the image of Dems in Hawai'i. Maybe they know more about this than we do? Just sayin'

    Thank your stars you're not that way/Turn your back and walk away/Don't even pause and ask them why/Turn around and say 'goodbye'/Just wish them well.....
