It all went down on a rainy, chilly Los Angeles evening. It was this past Thursday, actually. Curled up on the couch, I listened to the sky cry bitter tears over God’s inability to produce a clear choice in the Democratic race.

But first, some back story. Let’s rewind to November 3, 2004, a dark day in the memories of many. I had just gotten back from canvassing my little idealistic heart out for Kerry in Nevada, only to find that my efforts were in vain and we were staring another four years in the ugly face.
