OpEd: Too old to build seniority to steer pork to Hawaii

The Democratic primary battle is not a clash over ideology. Rather, the divide is personal. In Hanabusa's candidacy, what remains of Sen. Inouye's mostly Japanese-American political machine is fighting for supremacy against a younger and whiter progressive wing that is trying to become Hawaii's new ruling class.

A new path is what Abercrombie had in mind when he picked Schatz, saying, "It had everything to do with the future and the past." The governor said he thought Hanabusa, now 62, was too old to build enough seniority in the Senate to continue Inouye's legacy of steering an outsize allowance of federal money to Hawaii. Abercrombie noted: "Brian Schatz is 41. Colleen isn't. She's in her 60s."

Hanabusa said Abercrombie's focus on her age is "rather offensive." Hanabusa sounded angry and at times bitter that Abercrombie passed her over for Schatz. "It's like saying to the voters, 'Here's somebody who's going to be there forever.' No one should feel that level of entitlement."
