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.

    Obama and his supporters have a real disconnect with American people.

    On one hand, Obama states Americans are bitter and angry because their government does not listen to them and has left them behind. And this frustration is reflected at the polls. True enough.

    But then, The voters of Fl and Mi are being disenfranchised. The state and local governments are not listening to the people and are leaving them behind. They made rules to discount the votes of those Americans. Worse yet, voters are being punished, in a most undemocratic way, for the sins of elected officials.

    How can this NOT create anger and bitterness that will be reflected in the polls in Nov. And Obama, hypocritically has hired lawyers to block a revote.

    See, she's just like us common folk....kinda reminds me of another president people wanted to have a beer w/....GW Bush.....that worked out well.....sarcasm

    Now she's drinking to get votes, she's laughable. Are the American people going to fall for this again? Beware as soon as she get elected it's back to the same old stuff. Foreign trade agreements, lies, bad health care(she already failed at it once), lies, more war, lies. She'll come out richer than before however.

    Now, that the real Senator Clinton that why she thought whe was under sniper fire. See that answer the question to why Bill Clinton was on the other side of the white house with Monica Lewinski because Hillary was likely drunk.

    See George Bush can at least say he got help.

    Eat, drink and get fatter! the old alchy shows her true side, an old drunk! she is drunk most of the time you can see her blood shot eyes and her crooked walking like her crooked husband.

    She looks like a fish out of water if she isn't drinking and shooting her mouth off, no wonder she makes up so many lies and stories then when she is sober, she can't keep them straight. She better get loaded up soon, she is about to get thrown out of the elections when Obama kicks her big butt out!

    Obama is an elitist.

    Go Hillary Go!

    All the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

    We can trust Hillary. She will take care of the USA and the world

    Hillary is right.

    Obama is out of touch.

    His lawyers Blocking a revote in Fl and Mi is just another example of government NOT listening to the people and leaving them behind.

    Those voters are being punished for the actions of elected officials. To deny the vote is UNdemocratic and does not sit well with Americans. Yes, the voters of Fl and Mi too will become angry and bitter and they too will vote their frustration in Nov.

    How can such a smart man not endorse and support the people's right to have their votes count? And how can he be blind to the fact that this will hurt the democratic party and himself in particular this Nov?

    Even if he buys the nomination and were THE only name on the Nov ballot- he would not get my vote.

    Hillary campagin staffers who accuse Obama of appealing to "latte liberals" miss that Hillary herself IS a "latte liberal", Whiskey shot to the contrary.

    ME AND MILLIONS- Your anger is misplaced. How can "Hillarybots" blame Obama for FL and MI? He had nothing to do with that. And she didn't care about your voices being heard at the beginning of this race when she was leading.
    Critical thinking is severely lacking these days.

    This is ridiculous! I can't believe that a presidential primary is slamming a shot in a pub. Clearly pandering, and shows that she will stoop to any level to win votes.

    I can not believe this bitter crap is even getting attention it was just one more example of Hillary going negative and splitting people even further!

    How can she say he is out of contact with the American people there are the ones paying his bills not her in Mc Cain they have Corp. American and the lobby behind them him. she is so low! i like crown royal also but come on how presidential can she get! but I am not bothered anyway she will lose in PA I can not believe people there will vote for someone that obviously can not run the country and has been making money from them losing there jobs.

    Go Obama 08

    Hillary would snort coke and shoot heroin if she thought it would help her get elected.

    Drinking Canadian whisky while campaigning in Indiana...Not at all a decent step as a mother. I too wonder that how low she can go to win this nomination by hook or crook method...shame Hillary.

    OBAMA 2008....!!!!

    Certainly, she is doing more harm than help to herself and her family's legacy (if any).
    All she's done of late pertains to nihilism. That is, "herself or nothing".
    Electorate won’t put long before they have deciphered her innermost egoistic intents.
