Does Hillary have a drinking problem?
Let's talk about Hillary's drinking problem.

Drinking shots of Crown Royal, like she did here:





is something that can be done by someone that has done it before, perhaps quite often.

1. Don't forget about her vodka drinking contest with McCain in Estonia
Edited on Sun Apr-13-08 11:02 PM by JVS

30. I forgot about that story.
There is something really odd about all of these "I'm a man, watch me drink like one" photo-ops.

2. Please disregard that episode of "Cops"
It was an SNL spoof, and serious.

8. She's a politician. Politicians are public figures.
Public figures get ridiculed.

Get used to it.

35. Every gratuitous attack like this reduces the enthusiasm that HRC's
supporters might otherwise feel for Obama in the general election.

6. From her crossed eyes in the shot you didn't show, I'd say she's an amateur.
Sure, it was Crown, but I give her credit for keeping the shot down.

Quit it with the right wing attacks, and start getting productive.

She has lost. Let her pound back the bourbon.

I am VERY critical of our leaders (Mrs. Clinton in particular) -- but they all deserve R&R.

I don't think anyone here believes that she has a problem. The cocaine joke was a bit less jokey.

Why the hell not? The Obama folks obviously want to put things on that level.

26. the alcoholics I know have an acute grasp on reality
but Clinton seems to be disconnected from reality. So, upon further consideration, I don't think it's alcohol that she's abusing.

27. Three words - Werner-Korsakoff's Syndrome.
Look it up, related to long-term alcoholism and memory loss. Explains a lot.

But it's not.

36. Harry Truman liked a glass of bourbon
in the morning, before his daily constitutional. Churchill is alledged to have drunk a bottle of Cognac every day. AS long as she isn't face down in her dish every night, who cares.

I have many many problems with Hillary. This one is one bit of inanity I hoped we would not see, though. I drink maybe once every few months. I can down a shot. You don't have to be a regular to do it.

39. Binge drinking in public is a problem.
Tossing back shots of whiskey is not social drinking. I personally don't object to it but it happens to be a problem in many countries including our own, and no politician should model this behavior.

So whether or not she's an alcoholic I'd say the answer is yes.
