When one thinks of a party girl, one does not automatically think of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. But the notoriously buttoned-up former First Lady let her hair down over the weekend in Columbia during a trip for the VI Summit of Americas, and someone photographed the evidence.

Clinton and her friends--including some bodyguards--drank beer and whiskey and danced to Cuban music at Cafe Havana, and while this may seem pretty un-newsworthy--Hillary drinks beer! Stop the presses!--it was actually sort of a big deal to some of those who were privy to information traded during the Summit talks; mainly, the choice of a Cuban club, since the isolation of Cuba was a main topic at the talks.

Twitter seems to think the Secretary's night out gave her bonus cool points.

Seriously? Hillary Clinton deals with dictators and tyrants on a daily basis, I think she deserves a drink or two. http://t.co/ZKXXm3hK(image) 1 hour ago via HootSuite ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto
