The popular 1970s police drama "Hawaii Five-O" showcased the nation's 50th state and attracted millions of tourists to its shores. This year, political reporters have been trooping to Hawaii to see if the entrenched 40-year-old Democratic Party machine--dubbed "Hawaii Four-O"--will finally lose a race for governor and open up the Aloha State's politics.
