Hot on the trail of the vice presidency, McDonnell quashes controversial bills

Bob McDonnell, really, really, really wants the Republican vice president's nod this year. Fearing his run for the veep slot could be compromised by a long list of extremist measures coming out of this year's General Assembly, McDonnell evidently took some time off the campaign trail to twist some GOP arms into delaying the worst of their agenda for one more year in order to give McDonnell his chance.

Democrats needn't waste too much time congratulating themselves: this delay is by McDonnell and for McDonnell. Once the extreme Republican agenda in the General Assembly no longer conflicts with McDonnell's ambitions, it will be allowed to proceed.
