Who are the “Political Royal” in Hawaii?

The Washington Post is making a list of the “First Families” of each state in America. They are basically looking for the “Political Royal” from each state.

However, Hawaii has not had anyone submitted or nominated for this list. I can’t really think of a “family” per say that would dominate local politics statewide necessarily.

…We’re still collecting and sorting through all of the submissions but we still need the dominant political family from the following states: Arizona, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota and Oregon…

Here on the Big Island, I guess the ties between Mayor Kenoi, Senator Hanohano and Councilwoman Naeole would constitute something to what they are looking for… but I know they are looking for more of a State family and not just a County family.

So who do folks consider the “Politically Royal” of Hawaii and do they even have power any more?
