(CNN) – No matter what happens to Hawaii's Daniel Inouye tonight in his re-election bid, this just kinda blows you away.
Hawaii has been a state for 51 years. Inouye has been Hawaii's senator for all but three of those 51 years.
Before that, he served as the new state's first congressman.
Before that, he fought in World War Two and was awarded the Medal of Honor for his service.
Not much you can add to that.
