I'm new to python and I'm getting a date time from a field in the database
that looks like this:
8/2/2009 8:36:16 AM (UTC)

I want to split it into two fields one with the date formatted like this:
YYYY-MM-DD  2009-08-02

and the time to be 24 hour or military time. How every you call it. Similar
to this:

I found it easy to truncate off the (UTC), but having trouble converting the
date. Can someone point me in the right direction?
