obama's sister and the hawaii connection

Here's a good story on Maya Soetoro-Ng, and her relationship with her older brother... Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama: Obama's success rooted in Hawaii. It talks about how Obama sort of became a father figure for her after her parents split up. She currently teaches history at the private LaPietra Hawaii School for Girls and night classes at the University of Hawaii. You also get the sense from the article that a large part of Obama's personal history and identity is rooted in Hawaii. So shouldn't Barack rock the upcoming caucus in Hawaii, his state? Hopefully: Obama seeks win on Hawaiian home turf. But not necessarily, according to this Daily Kos post: Obama in real danger of losing Hawaii. Nevertheless, Maya was reppin' for her brother this weekend in a big way: Barack Obama's sister Maya takes Islands by storm
