Better to have a teetotaler or a drinker in the White House?
And, when it comes to political leadership, it's not clear that Man from Galilee had more control over his apostles than, say, another J.C. had over Hamilton Jordan. And if Clinton didn't get his gin-blossoming, W.C. Fieldsesque schnozz from gin, where they hell is it coming from? But the main point is well-taken nonetheless; we all want a leader who can relax with an occasional beer. Or in the case of Winston Churchill, the continuous "Papa Cocktail."
We wouldn't want a leader drunk on duty, of course. But there's something about people who are afraid of losing control that's scarier than people who do lose control occasionally.
