On a congressional trip to Estonia, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton astonished her traveling companions by suggesting the group do what one does in the Baltics: hold a vodka-drinking contest!
Delighted, the leader of the overseas delegation, Sen. John McCain, quickly agreed, the NEW YORK TIMES is planning to report on Saturday.
The after-dinner game went so well -- memories are a bit hazy on who drank how much -- that McCain later told people how unexpectedly fun he found Clinton to be.
TIMES reporter Anne Kornblut has filed a story on the curious relationship between Hillary and John McCain.
"One of the guys," is the way McCain describes her.
Clinton and McCain have developed an amiable relationship. They worked together, both on the Senate Armed Services Committee and on the issue of global warming. But as the 2008 presidential campaign begins to take shape, with McCain and Clinton at the top of the polls for their parties' nominations, they are increasingly doing things that underscore their differences.
"But the interplay between the two senators -- both celebrities, both self-styled centrists, both with compelling personal narratives and a knack for infuriating their own parties' bases -- remains intriguing as they navigate the early phase of a presidential race with an eye toward conceivably running against one another."
They can't run against each other. McCain wouldn't make it through the Republican primary, nor Hilary through the Democrat primary. It's just not going to happen unless one (or gah, both) parties decide to swallow the line of electability.
And Reagan used to drink with Tip O’Neil.
I rest my case.
She probably reminded him of one of his former prison guards.
Reagan stayed conservative.
what a RINO!
McCain ain’t Reagan and Hillary ain’t O’Neill.
not by today’s standards
Don’t think I could envison anything fun about being with a drunk Hillary unless it was very, very late and I was way, way drunker.
haha it sounds like he shagged her, I hope he was keeping an eye on slick and Mrs McCain.
The first clue was her penis.
and Reagan aint running for president
They were both so drunk that McCain thought she was beautiful and thought she smelled good. Hillary thought McCain was actually sane.
I think I just lost my lunch.
No, he's as dead as the GOP.
This is, no doubt, a post to throw more votes to a 3rd party. Anyone ever so close to her will be stained.
Now that’s drunk!
Hey, Maybe McCain can make her his running mate after she loses to Obama.
