NYT: sHillary, Tool McCain held vodka drinking contest

Raw Story points to a NYT article that, well, I’m not sure what the purpose of it is. Drinking = centrism? Drinking= butch?

On a congressional delegation trip to Estonia in August of 2004, Senators Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and John McCain (R-AZ) held a “vodka-drinking contest,” according to an article slated for Saturday’s edition of The New York Times.

…”The after-dinner game went so well — memories are a bit hazy on who drank how much — that Mr. McCain, an Arizona Republican, later told people how unexpectedly engaging he found Mrs. Clinton to be,” Kornblut reports. “‘One of the guys,’ was the way he described Mrs. Clinton, a New York Democrat, to some Republican colleagues.”

“What happens in Estonia stays in Estonia,” a Clinton spokesman tells The Times.
