I admire Barack Obama’s ability to stay cool in public. David Brooks, of the New York Times, pointed this out to me – that in fact over two years of intense campaigning, he did not rant, did not get petty. This sense of resolve and non-ranting in public is a Hawaiian value, onipaʻa, from the the time of the overthrow of the monarchy. It was the motto of King Kamehameha V and Queen Liliʻuokalani. You will find that ranting in public will not get you many results here in the land of Aloha.
Onipaʻa; _determination, resolute_
