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.

    Go Hillary, you deserve to have a shot of whiskey. Canadian whiskey is the best and everyone who drinks whiskey knows that. Cheap whiskey gives you a headache. Just the facts but the unsophisticated Obama supporters wouldn't know that...they wish they were white winedrinkers...in fact, hey're the Thunderbird/Colt 45 group.

    Obama has nothing to apologize for in the comment he made. The average people he is talking about understood his comment and knows that he sympathizes with what we are going through.
    Clinton on the other hand, will jump on anything that is said and twist it. Listening to her and her lies makes me need a drink! This person doesn't have a clue and I hope people wake up and don't vote her and Bill back into the White House.

    At least Hillary is not being a snob by making demeaning remarks about small town America behind their backs like Obama........

    Instead she's having pizza and drinking beer and whisky with these people.

    Go Hillary!

    Obama was saying that Americans have been promised economic changes that remain unfulfilled to this day. What explaination is needed for the anger and bitterness toward those Clinton and McCain-like politicians that have promised much and delivered next to nothing. Look at the record job outsourcing and job losses, the dollars decline and general mistrust of the government that millions of hard working Americans are affected by everyday. Many will not see the truth in the context of Obama's message, that's sad. Let Hillary convince you that you have been insulted, rather than explain why she couldn't deliver the jobs to the people of New York she promised and won't deliver to America if elected.

    People, get over FL and MI. The state parties decided not to have revotes. The Michigan Supreme Court declared the election void. Put it behind you and realize your candidate WILL NOT WIN!!!

    Get a grip, Huntingdon PA – Hillary is as "elitist" as they get. See if she gives a hoot about the "small people" when she gets into office. NOT. She'll just take care of filling her pockets and boosting her ego.

    coooh blimey ! now let me put this in perspective ! mis step all the way to two weeks to penn, try hard to split hairs on an American bitter truth, only this time, told by a fellow contestant, due to drunkenness and livid with anger and racsism that the other guy is about to steal the show, jump to the semantics while terribly drunk, all this time, not even close to the fact that everything now is on auto pilot to the greatest fall of a desperate politician who just couldnt get it. I am sorry HILLARY, you are a bad movie that stayed on an hour too long !

    Clinton and all of your pseudo-left wing supporters (that somehow manage to accommodate free trade), the Democratic party is done with you. Better switch to the other party now.

    Us young kids are kicking you hypocrites out. Goodbye. Say hello to the new America

    I love how the CNN producers just through in "Canadian whiskey".

    All my life, I never knew Crown Royal was a canadian wiskey. Is this an innuendo or something.

    No wonder she always misspeaks, after all the royal crown, Hennessey, wiscky and all that. hmmm this is serious case. After the shot i bet another misspoken words will be flowing like aliens in the air. Watch out folks.

    Hillary is just like the rest of us Americans. She's down to earth,

    a true American, does not look down on the Penn residents.

    I hope everone read blackwell's column, he hit it right on the head

    with Obama. If Obama is elected President all of us white and any

    other race that is not black had better run for cover. Mark my words

    Rev Wright and his anti American wife will be right by his side along

    with the black panthers that support him. He is a lair and a sneak

    and he covers everyhting with his "YES WE CAN SPEECHES"

    Watch out Obama america is on to you.

    Way to go Hillary...Obama is a jerk..Well, lets see, if your out of work and bitter, you become a gun toting, bible thumping, homosexual racist? I think he just stepped in it again. He is also a liar, worst then Hillary. She only embelished her trip to Bosnia. She was opposed to NAFTA and is opposed to CAFTA. People need to get the facts straight. He flat out lied about his Rev. and Rezko and NAFTA. Why do people continue to follow him as if he were a messiah?

    Wow. Drinking Canadian whiskey makes you unpatriotic? Leave it to the Obominations to come up with that.

    She's just trying to appeal to the "average bitter US citizen" who resorts to drinking when things get bad economically and their religion, guns and racism haven't made them feel better. You just missed one Barack. Alcoholism is another result of bitterness.

    If I were married to Bill Clinton and had to run against Barack Obama I wouldn't be taking a shot......I'd be taking the bottle.
