Hawaii face-off - Senate

Off of Racism Week, and onto more substantive political analysis. For those of us in the mainland, Hawaiian politics never come to mind. However, Hawaii is the only US state where Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are the majority minority. This is what makes the Senate and 2nd Congressional District races particularly interesting, as Ed Case, the 2nd District's Congressman, is challening incumbent Senator Daniel Akaka (Democrat). This has created the standard musical chairs routine, and now there are a number of candidates for the open Congressional seat (I'll cover this in another post.)

What makes this state politically interesting is that it is the reddest "blue state" -- in 2004 , the national GOP in the form of Dick Cheney, made a few passes there, causing Democrats to invest some money in the state. Although the state's Congressional delegation is all Democratic, the governor, Linda Lingle, is a Republican.
Senators : Daniel Inouye (D), Daniel Akaka (D)
Representative(s) : Neil Abercrombie (D), Ed Case (D)

The 2004 Census figures show a very diverse state:

Column 1 = Hawaii pop. Col 2= US pop.
White persons, percent, 2004 (a) 26.5% 80.4%
Black persons, percent, 2004 (a) 2.2% 12.8%
American Indian and Alaska Native persons, percent, 2004 (a) 0.3% 1.0%
Asian persons, percent, 2004 (a) 41.8% 4.2%
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, percent, 2004 (a) 9.1% 0.2%
Persons reporting two or more races, percent, 2004 20.1% 1.5%
Persons of Hispanic or Latino origin, percent, 2004 (b) 7.9% 14.1%

(Sorry, one of these days I will figure out how to format in tables properly.)

I. The Senate race: Akaka v. Case

Senator Daniel Akaka is the only Chinese American member of the Senate (and one of two Asian American senators, both from Hawaii) as well as the only Native Hawaiian in the Senate, and the chief sponsor of a bill for federal recognition for Native Hawaiians. Akaka has been a leader for Asian Pacific Americans as part of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus. During WWII, he served in the US Army of Engineers. His campaign site describes his childhood:
Danny Akaka was born in 1924, the last of eight children. His grandfather emigrated from China in the late 1880s and married a Native Hawaiian. His father worked as a molder for the old Honolulu Iron Works Company while his mother cared for four sons and four daughters. The Akaka children grew up in a poor but close-knit family. They all lived in a tiny, two-bedroom house in Pauoa Valley. “We didn’t have much,” recalls Akaka, “but we were raised in a very spiritual manner with a great love of family, which our parents passed on to us. Looking back, I’m amazed at how they were able to give us so much of the things that really mattered when they had so little.”
He sits on the following Senate committees:
  • Armed Services,
  • Energy and Natural Resources,
  • Governmental Affairs (GAC), Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee
  • Veterans' Affairs,
  • Indian Affairs.

He previously also served on the Select Committee on Ethics. Akaka might become the ranking Senator of the Homeland Security committee if Dems take back the Senate and kick Joe Lieberman out, a scenario that is growing increasingly likely as Lieberman alienates rising numbers of Senate colleagues.

Congressman Ed Case is a lawyer by training who replaced the esteemed late Congresswoman Patsy Mink in a special election. Case had previously run unsuccessfully for Governor.

Rep. Mink was the first non-white woman to serve in Congress, as well as author of the historic Title IX Amendment of the Higher Education Act that legislated gender parity in higher education, most notably in sports. Mink was a major civil rights figure, and was one of the 13 Representatives who protested the awarding of Florida's electoral votes during the debacle of the 2000 elections because of voter disenfranchisement (in a clip shown during Farenheit 9/11.)

Case is a cousin of the fabulously wealthy Steve Case, founder of AOL.

A recent Honolulu Advertiser article highlights the main differences between the candidates:

Akaka, 81, squarely addressed the issue of his age, saying the elderly should not be cynically dismissed as frail and disposable but valued as kupuna who have wisdom and experience.

The senator also embraced his role as a liberal who has challenged President Bush on the war in Iraq, the USA Patriot Act and tax breaks for the wealthy, suggesting that the moderate Case would not stand up to the administration.

"Who is going to do that for us in Washington, D.C.? Who will be the alternative voice, that persistent conscience?" Akaka asked. "Will it be Republicans? Or even individuals who claim to be Democrats but vote to the contrary?

"Or will they just rubber-stamp the administration's decisions?"

Case, 53, acknowledged that the primary is a difficult and emotional choice for many but asked people to look honestly at the need for leadership transition. He said planning for transition is routine in business, the military and in many families and warned that it would be a mistake for Hawai'i to fail to recognize its importance in the Senate.

Case's argument for "leadership transition" is specious - as Akaka pointed out during the debates, Congressman Neli Abercrombie would be a natural fit for the next Senator from Hawaii. Furthermore, rubberstamping Bush's agenda does not equate to "leadership" for Case. Case fails here to make a sound argument FOR himself, rather he is just engaged in trying to bring down Akaka. A major policy difference here: Akaka voted against the Iraq war, as someone who has seen firsthand the ravages of war, whereas Case remains in support of his vote for the Iraq war.

Akaka portrayed himself as someone who has been able to be "that alternative voice, that nagging conscience."

"Will it be Republicans or even individuals who claim to be Democrats, but vote to the contrary?" Akaka asked. "Or will they just rubber stamp this administration's decisions?"

Case said, however, that Akaka has been named the "most liberal member of the Senate" and is backed by the "far-left one percent."

Turning his attention to the war in Iraq, Akaka said he sees himself as someone who will "demand of this (Bush) administration a strategy and timetable for peace and how we intend to ensure a stable and democratic government in Iraq."

But Case said Akaka was one of only 13 senators who voted to demand that American troops pull out of Iraq in one year.

Akaka has been endorsed by progressive Democrats including Dennis Kucinich and Barack Obama (who grew up in Hawaii) and the Progressive Democrats of Hawaii, a spinoff of the Progressive Democrats of America.

MyDD has a good analysis of how conservative Ed Case is, and finds him very far to the right:

The National Journal on Feb 24th published an ideological ranking of all members of Congress. Overall, Ed Case was the 25th most conservative Democrat in the House. 22 of the more conservative Democrats came from the South, so I guess you can say they don't have much freedom on how to vote. Of the two non-Southern Dems, both came from conservative districts that voted for Bush. After looking at the scoring, I can comfortably say that Ed Case is the most conservative Democrat in the House who has a choice on how to vote! The others HAVE to support Bush-- Ed CHOOSES to do so.
Progressive Democrats are working to kick Joe Lieberman out of the Senate on the mainland, and should be rightfully worried about getting a conservative Dem like Case in exchange.

Have a great day! Eddie Friends Eddie US Senate Hawaii 2006 Eddie Pirkowski US Senate Hawaii 2006 Candidate Direct Email: mauisenator@yahoo.com Eddie Pirkowski US Senate Hawaii 2006 Candidate Open Letter Platform Response to Debate Senator Akaka and Congressman Case. To all the people of Hawaii, a true leader focuses on those issues most important to the people, to reach all the dreams and goals of all the people of Hawaii. My leadership is in the style of Lincoln and Kennedy - to Stand up and reach top leadership in the US Senate for all the people of Hawaii. I humbly ask for your vote in this upcoming primary September 23, 2006. PLATFORM LETTER Hawaii US Senate 2006 GOP Candidate Eddie Pirkowski's Platform Creates Hawaii Leaders with Respect, Commitment, Trust, Equality in the Style of Lincoln, and, Kennedy. My US Senate Hawaii platform goals for the state of Hawaii are far reaching, and includes creating strong leaders in Hawaii that are respected worldwide. As one of the US Senate's Hawaii leaders, I will restore respect, trust and, honor in both public, private, and, nonprofit services throughout Hawaii, and the US, and thereby strengthen our defense with renewed respect on the world stage. It has been far too long for creation of Hawaiian sovereignty with respect for all, therefore I recommend immediate dual citizenship status (Dual US Hawaiian Passports) with appropriate US Federal, State, County, City Hawaii, and UN recognition. I will reduce Taxes for all ages and income groups, by increasing the minimum wage to $9.50 and the home exemption to $500k+ effectively doubling revenues to create a budget surplus of $1B+ for Hawaii. These funds will paydown real estate, and other taxes toreduce the impact on fixed income seniors, middle income wage earners, the young, and the poor. New community urban city revitalization programs will include new technology, industry centers, transaction grids, multi-use buildings, green walking communities, and low income housing with a goal of 100% independent services by community. New home incentives for owners to develop urban botanical gardens, victory backyard gardens including plants, vegetables, and native Hawaiian flowers and plants will revitalize neigborhoods and balance in family life. Entertainment infrastructure on the islands will include building new and updating existing sports /entertainment facilities by island to allow professional baseball, football, and soccer teams, movies, and world class concerts in Hawaii with the path for children to reach these heights clearly defined. An emphasis on the Police Athletic League (PAL) will bring both state,county and city workers closer together with the families of our islands. PAL will extend leagues from our children to our active seniors. These are the huis which create our family structure by community and need to be nourished to sustain respect of the youth and the aging for the leaders in our state, the everyday heros the moms, dads, grandpas, and grandmas, the ohana anties and uncles. The goal of creating 100% energy independence by Hawaiian island can be achieved using reliable, low cost solar tube technology (http://www.sbp.de) with 24 hour production capabilities of 50 MWe power generation per tube, 4 tubes per island will create 250MWe+ per island meeting the stated goal of 100% energy independence by island, complementing existing infrastructure. The power will be used to create desalination, and pumping facilities to distribute our water to regreen all our communities. After recycling, new advanced waste management techniques with a 500' rotating pipe can safely reduce and separate the islands paper waste volume significantly as in Rhode Island. Shredded, recycled waste tires will create new environmentally friendly rubber sidewalks, driveways, and guard rails on all islands. A new financial services industry in Hawaii, including a new Hawaii Stock Exchange (HSX) with partnerships with all major US, EEC, and Asian stock exchanges will create a new multibillion dollar industry here. Hawaii is perfect for the financial services industry with 24 hour trading partnerships with the leaders in the US, EEC and Asian retail, proprietary trading, private equity, derivatives hedging, banking,private banking, insurance, and investment banking communities. New state, county, and local paper digitization program to reduce paperwork storage requirements especially in the state, and county legal, engineering, and planning departments will create state and county office space in existing office buildings. Six sigma reviews for efficiency of all programs at both the state, and county levels will identify bottlenecks in services and reconfirm the strength and quality of our services to reach the needs of the people today and tomorrow. I ask for your vote for the US Senate Hawaii on September 23,2006, to create the leadership to reach your goals and community visions for today and the future. My commitment is to make each person's life better on all the beautiful islands of Hawaii, and to restore the peoples trust in our US Senate leadership,in Hawaii, the US and the world community. Because of the location of Hawaii, from New York and Japan, it is the perfect location for 24 hour trading worldwide to create a new Hawaii Stock Exchange (HSX) , with partnerships with US, EEC Asian exchange leaders. The State of Hawaii can use $100M+ of the current surplus to raise the credit rating for Hawaii. (currently AA- rating is highest in the nation) to reduce risk, reduce State, and County cost of borrowing,increase rates of return on investment, and prepay interest on long term debt. America was built on the strength, and creativity of its immigrant population, therefore I recommend immigration reform including restoration of respect to all citizens and, to provide all with a 100% path to US citizenship. To lead with strength, honor, trust, commitment, and respect at all levels of public and private endeavor is our goal. Hawaii's rich diversity of plants and animals provides a wealth of diversity with unique differences on all of the islands. This diversity creates a plant and animal genetic catalogue of all Hawaii native plants, and animals to guarantee our future with respect for our common past. New advanced transportation systems complementing our existing infrastructure will focus on independent green walking communities, with new private and, public buses, and increased route coverage for all our seniors and children to reach any part of our islands. I recommend the development of advanced transportation systems for 100% independent transportation by island for Air, Land, Sea, and Rail as the core of a reliable infrastructure for stable growth. In construction and planning, decentralized leadership of each islands county wait list by community based on the general plan ,and decentrallized control of planning will allow leaders by community to take ownership of and increase both the effectiveness and to reduce the wait time for planning and development of advanced green communities, and the needed infrastructures to support current, and plan for solid future needs. The specific focus of agribusiness will provide 100% of each islands Hawaii food, including production, operations, distribution with an immediate goal of 100% sustainable independence by island. Organic farming will ensure price stability with highly productive and efficient environmental farms. The replanting, and regreening of all islands will heighten the tourist experience, and the aina of the land for the people of Hawaii. The road to Hana on Maui must be regreened and tropical including developing all park areas and setting aside lands with long term large scale koa reforestation and unique botany tropical and regional projects for all islands. The beauty of our islands is unparalled, and needs to be replenished for a strong and beautiful future for our children. Thank you for this opportunity to speak my mind. I am standing up in leadership for each of you. Mahalo ! Aloha Have a great day!
