I live in Hawaii. I'm supporting @kaikahele for Hawaii 2nd.

I was a member of three groups in my life. Catholic since baptism. Democrats since my first election with my dad running for city counsel when I was maybe five years old. And I was a Boy Scout. Pretty much that's it.
Kai Kahele's dad was a highly respected Democrat here. Like Tulsi, Kai has paid his dues in state government and in uniform. But he's a Democrat. I could not certify Tulsi Gabbard as an ideological Democrat. IMO a 180 degrees off on many fundamental Democratic Party orthodoxy.
Congress member Gabbard's aggressive response to the perceived attack today overtook any possible thoughtful analysis of @HillaryClinton's Syria policies. I thought her policies were misguided and they set the stage for the reckoning we now have with Trump's decision
to surrender to Hilary's jihadists. What Gabbard showed today was that she was a hot head. I've had enough of that. She may be a fine MP but she's no commander in chief.

And I don't trust her to protect the Kurds and religious minorities
I think she will take Assad's view and that means Hezbollah. They come as a set.

There are way too many people dying in Syria right now. That's where our attention should be focused. Not on some petty squabbles.
