    Because Barack Obama requested earmarks for "highways to nowhere" when he was a baby!

    Here is a Geek answer.....


    While the name implies that Interstate highways cross state lines, many do not. Rather, they are funded federally with money shared among the states. There are Interstate highways in Hawaii funded in the same way as in the other states, but entirely within the populous island of Oahu. They have the designation of H-x and connect military bases, though they are open to public use.

    The reason HI has interstate highways is because that's where the other 7 states Obama mentioned actually are. I thought everyone knew that. I know our school books say it's just one state, but it's not.
