CROWN POINT, Indiana – After a day of taking shots at rival Sen. Barack Obama over his "bitter" remarks, Sen. Hillary Clinton relaxed in Crown Point, Indiana and took a shot of a different kind – Crown Royal whiskey.

Clinton was at Bronko’s Restaurant having a beer when the bartender asked, “You want a shot with that Hillary?” After some deliberation, Clinton settled on a shot of Crown Royal, a Canadian whiskey.

Later in the evening, the Democratic presidential hopeful also sat down and had some pizza.

    Cheers Senator Clinton!
    I am supporting you and I don't own a gun and I don't go to church.
    Read the comments of the extreme lefty BO supporters. Now THAT is bitter!

    Sens Clinton and McCain, just look in the mirror if you want to see an elitist. How can any couple with excess of 100 million in the bank call someone else an elitist??

    F, MPLS, you are correct.

    No wonder she raves on campagn trails. She needs sobriety test before each speach. The way I saw her do it, She didn't just learn it at a bar in Penn.

    So what? who doesnt take a drink every now and then. Most modern day presidents and certainly politicians have been known to drink alcohol .

    How unlady like can she get? Nobody wants a drunk for president.
    If she wins we will all need that shot & alchol consumption will go up.

    Crown Royal is too elitist. Stick with the beer.
