...and She Got Attractive 'Round Closing Time

McCain's just like all the boys:

Two summers ago, on a Congressional trip to Estonia, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton astonished her traveling companions by suggesting that the group do what one does in the Baltics: hold a vodka-drinking contest.

Delighted, the leader of the delegation, Senator John McCain, quickly agreed. The after-dinner drinks 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. “One of the guys” was the way he described Mrs. Clinton, a New York Democrat, to some Republican colleagues.

Musta been some powerful stuff....

The vodka probably triggered some of the programming McShame underwent in Vietnam.

McCain was always a screwball. Not too surprising.

This is one of the problems which the hard-core partisans on each side have: the necessity to demonize the opposition all the time. Demonization is often a substitute for clear, rational thought. Some of the partisans on each side are incapable of rational thought, of course.

If you read historical biographies you find that the men (and so far they have all been men) who have been elected President have been pretty good people. That even includes someone like Richard Nixon, who had quite a record of accomplishment beyond his dark side.
