ReasonTV - Virginia is for (Liquor) Lovers

Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell makes the case to privatize booze sales.

Despite a reputation as a social conservative, McDonnell thinks that state-run liquor stores are a bad idea from both pragmatic and philosophical perspectives. Given budget crises, says McDonnell, "we can't just do things the same old way.... Certainly there's nothing I gleaned from the [Virginia] constitution that would have me think it's better or required to have the government controlling distilled spirits."

How long before we start calling Bob McDonnell "The Constitution First Governor"?
