Unless your fluid is old it is good. I certainly don't see brake fluid completely crapping out in one day, it degrades slowly over time.

Master cylinder sounds feasible...

Brake fluid is definately old. I would say atleast 4 years or more.

Don't really know how air could have gotten into the lines?

Well I'll do some snooping tomorrow and try to get a better idea what is going on. Thanks for the suggestions.
