When asked, “Have you ever won a drinking competition?” Clinton replied that Republican Senator John McCain had challenged her to one when they were part of the same congressional delegation.
“We have our political differences but we sat there drinking vodka, until we both, I think, agreed to withdraw in honourable fashion, having reached the limits that either of us should have had.”

The question and answer tweeted by Hillary’s campaign team.
“I consider it a tie, yes,” said Hillary, who holds a clear lead over second-placed Bernie Sanders in opinion polls that predict the winner of the Democratic presidential nomination for the White House in 2016.
Republican Senator John McCain was the Republican presidential nominee in the 2008 presidential election, but lost to Barack Obama.
