Awesome Political Figure of the Week: Boris Yeltsin

Yes, I know he's dead, but who is Death to keep an Awesome Political Figure from appearing on our blog? Nobody, that's who!

This is an excerpt from an upcoming book detailing a recent in-depth interview with Bill Clinton...

"He also relayed how Boris Yeltsin's late-night drinking during a visit to Washington in 1995 nearly created an international incident. The Russian president was staying at Blair House, the government guest quarters. Late at night, Clinton told Branch, Secret Service agents found Yeltsin clad only in his underwear, standing alone on Pennsylvania Avenue and trying to hail a cab. He wanted a pizza, he told them, his words slurring."

Rest in Peace. Party Animals Live Forever.
