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.

    People, everyone needs to understand this. It doesn't matter that she's drinking the whiskey. It's that she doesn't have to pay for it like you and me. The Clintons have all this money but still get all those perks. And everyone still loves the Clintons (the ones that only really care for themselves)

    Enought with "bitter" since it doesn't compare to "sniper fire." This coverage is enough to drive one to drink. Will 22 April fast enough?

    "Hillary's Problem is Obama's Problem":

    The problem with Hillary and Bill is that they are NOT AUTHENTIC. You could even read it from Hillary's facial expression. She is too FAKE. However, it is becoming clearer to me that DECEPTION is what you need to win an election in America, and these goes all the way to define who Americans really are: GULLIBLE, if not how can Clinton still be in the race to be the leader of the "MOST GULLIBLE country in the World"

    In the case of Obama, he is too AUTHENTIC for America politics. Good for him, he is being schooled on how in America, politician should not speak the TRUTH. Here, you can't just continue to be honest with your words and expect to win votes. The way to do politics in America is to tell the people what they want to hear, even if it is not the TRUTH. Drink whiskey where voters love to drink whiskey, claim you are an avid hunter where people like hunting even if you have never shoot a catapult. Obama if you want to win an election in America, GO AND LEARN HOW TO TELL LIES!

    She'll need another drink when she realizes America is not buying what she's trying to sell–baloney.

    You gotta be a fool to be fooled by this woman. When will Hillary realize it is all over? For me, I relish the thought of seeing the Clintons throw a tantrum when thsy finally fold.

    Sen. Clinton takes a shot of whiskey? It's all for the vote. OK..so I now tell my daughter, that in addition to pretentious crying and out and out lying and other evils I forgot, she's going to have to learn to take a whiskey shot.

    That's if she wants to be President. Wonder if I can persuade her to be a Dentist instead?

    How is this news?
    It looks like it is another way to show the Pennsylvanians that Hillary is in touch. Is CNN working for the Clinton campaign? Is CNN getting paid yet? Y'all sure ain't doing real journalism. Shame on you CNN

    I drank whiskey.
    My daddy taught me to shoot a gun.
    I changed a tire on a pickup (it was American made)
    I drove a double clutch farm truck.
    I baled hay.
    I can tell you right now. Hillary is not a real man. I am.
    Vote for me.

    Seriously she is doing exactly what Obama expected her to do. Sink low and go after the gun vote and the religious vote to distract folks from her record on NAFTA, her lies on the trail and her millions in the bank.

    This is funny she calls Obama elitist but takes a shot of fine Canadian wiskey in Indiana, where she should have had Jack. We all know who the elitist is.

    The headline should have been more like Hillary sipped a shot.

    she is the woman of many faces and this is on the way to prove it

    I hope that everyone can now see that Hillary do not want Obama to get all the action. Why did Hillary make a fool of herself and drank whiskey? What else did she do after getting drunk. This is sad. Hillary no standards at all when it comes to this campaign election. No morals at all, she seem to enjoy every shot she drank.

    Wow people. The woman is human. If she wants to take a shot and eat pizza, so be it. If I was in her shoes right now I'd be doing a lot more than one shot.

    She is worth 109M+dollars anyway. Loook the people she is drinking with. They are not regular folks. No wonder Obama has such a support!

    These politicians will do anything except discuss the issues (they'll mention them, but not say what they'll do about them). They're driving ME to drink - Wish I could afford what they're guzzling!
