Clinton takes a shot . . . of whiskey

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.

    I believe everyone is missing the point to this...The real questions is not about politics, it is a question of if she chased the shot with her beer or not.

    She has the momentum going to PA & Indiana, she can even win North Carolina. She is now on her way to close this long winded primary!

    Obama is an elitist, his grandma & his wife are elitist. He's not a true down to earth candidate! I really don't trust him.

    Wow, Canadian whiskey. She really DOES support free trade. She can't even drink American. Besides, I'd drink too if I was as behind as she is given that she should have wrapped the nomination up in February.

    The Clintons' whiskey shots were real; their sniper shots in Bosnia weren't. May the Clintons take reliable polygraph shots to atone for all of their sins and misstatements.

    Who cares if she has a drink. We are all human. Let's move on to their political views.

    I don't have a problem with her taking a shot of royal. I did go on to her website and tried to comment on her blog and with no success. On Obama's blog you can see your comment immediately after you post it. On her's obviously only the pro Hillary comments are posted. What happened to the idea of a good debate Hillary?

    Ask John Roberts there is no e in whisky. Bring on Jesse Ventura. He should be your next president.
