Life imitates art, art imitates life, or the wondrous powers of our own Dan Nexon…

The following takes place between 4:00 and 5:00 pm on the day of the California Presidential Primary:

You might remember that the plot of Day 1 of 24 was today: The California Presidential Primary, when the first major African-American Presidential candidate stands to win a major victory that will propel him to the White House. In the show, special agent Jack Bauer took anti-terrorism to a new level when he killed (and tortured) terrorists in order to prevent the assassination of David Palmer. He did*, and the rest is history…

*for the time being… Palmer would later be assassinated, after his Presidency, in season 5 so he could leave 24 for his new series, The Unit.
