Glenn Reynolds asks Obama to lower the drinking age:

I will make one policy proposal. Some of my fellow libertarians hope that the Obama administration will put an end to the drug war. I hope so too, but I'm not too optimistic.

This mandate was a creature of Elizabeth Dole (who is no longer in the Senate to complain at its abolition), and it has unnecessarily limited the freedom of legal adults, old enough to fight for their country, to drink adult beverages.

Megan agrees. It's nice to see that Glenn is libertarian on the issues that matter. Oh, wait...
