    Bobby's death was a body blow. I remember how hard I prayed that June night that he wouldn't die (of course he never had a chance). I can still see him on the podium in California after his primary victory. "It's on to Chicago, and let's win there".

    That horrible, ugly Democratic Convention later that year! I think that's when my last hope died. There was so much hopelessness and anger out there in the streets. I watched and felt the same way.

    Today seems to have opened the floodgates for me.
