If the Democratic Party is Serious about "succession" and building "seniority" they will select Tulsi.
Hanabusa is too old, and so is Hirono. Ed Case and Neil Abercrombie both served in Congress, but are also on the downslope of their careers.
Gabbard is a vet, has youth, and was duly elected to the House. Since "seniority" is "everything" in Congress, Tulsi should be chosen.
Right now, Hawaii has zilch to lose, but putting Hanabusa in there would guarantee we lose seniority again in the not too distant future, coz Colleen and Mazie ain't spring chickens.
A "thin bench" indeed.
