As in, he’s endorsing Schatz over Colleen Hanabusa.

And by ‘interesting’ I mean favorable:
If the Hawaii News Now/Star Advertiser poll checked the Senate race, it wasn’t reported: based on the numbers, I’d guess that Hanabusa would be ahead of Djou and that Djou would be ahead of Schatz*. That is… remarkable news: particularly if the Hawaiian primaries turn nasty. After all, Djou won his Congressional race because Ed Case and… Colleen Hanabusa… both adamantly refused to accept the results of their primary race. Obviously, the Hawaiian Democratic party is as aware of this as I am: the question is, will they be able to keep whichever Democrat loses in line?
Interesting days ahead.

*You might be forgiven for thinking that this poll suggests that hao… ahem, ‘Caucasians’… may end up having a somewhat thin time of it in Hawaii this election cycle. Mostly because I’m thinking it, too. I don’t know what to do about it, though.
Just as a thought experiment: imagine what would happen if the following scenario played out…
The question before the board is, Just how big would the resulting media firestorm be, anyway? Large enough to detect from orbit?
