And he actually won a damn war

According to the AP: "A month after the American colonists issued their Declaration of Independence, Gen. George Washington made plans to defend New York against a British attack. He also put in his order for wine, brandy and an assortment of liqueurs.

Washington's list called for:
_1 box Claret
_1 Cag. Brandy
_1 box Muscat wine
_1 Basket Cordials
_1 box Ratafia
_2 Cheeses — old — 58 lb"

(A box is a case, and they think cag is probably a keg.)

Of course, our current President is anti-alcohol and doesn't drink at all. Now which one would you say is the better leader?

As Homer Simpson once said: "To alcohol! The cause of - and solution to - all of life's problems."
