    This is a good thing, since I was born in Hawaii I know how very conservative the entire state is. It’s good that the elections are going in a good election(cept for the Rep’s house takeover)

    Did the House stay Democratic? If so yes, I’d say they should get their fully-equal (except for the name) Civil Unions.

    @george: The Hawaii Legislature is overwhelmingly Democratic.

    Hawaiian politics is a weird and wonderful thing to behold. One of the most democratic states while also with a strong streak of blue collar conservatism.

    I miss home!
