    Hawaii DEMS are apparently so arrogant they are willing to blow this special election and Abercrombie didn't have to resign.

    I think DEMS will find it a lot tougher to win this seat back in November after the bloody DEM primary that won't happen until Sept!  DEMS are being fools letting the very likable Djou get in office.  If he wins big in the special he will be a lot tougher to get rid of in the fall.

    Just plain stupidity by the DEMS all around in Hawaii.

      Both Democrats just HAD to stay in this race.  Now we are paying for it and will probably pay for it for several years.

        One of them could have dropped out of the special election and just run for the primary in Sept when it became apparent that the seat was in jeopardy.

        Let me just say that I blame Hanabusa more in this case.  Her numbers in the district are really not good and she would be a very poor candidate to take on Djou in the fall.  I know many here don't like Case but he can win...and he is a Democrat.  He has been wrong on some issues like Iraq but he is the only candidate who can beat Djou in the fall in my opinion.

        Why did DEMS just have to bring this nonsense on themselves.  I am so pissed by this mess.
