there's alot to be said about drinking and smoking together...we're losing a healthy human interaction

The discussion was led by the Aspen Institute's Walter Isaacson. "And Obama had iced tea and was chewing Nicorette and Boehner had a glass of wine and he's smoking – it sends a subtle message," Woodward said.
Isaacson jumped in, "The one time we would've wanted somebody to start smoking again." But Woodward wasn't kidding. "You know if you say, 'let's have a drink together,' and somebody gets wine and somebody orders iced tea, you think, I'm on the other side here," Woodward said.
