There's a new book coming out next week revealing the juicy gossip found within Bill Clinton's secret White House tapes, which he kept hidden in his sock drawer, next to his Trojans.
The wackiest anecdote involves Boris Yeltsin, the sot who once led the Russia people to a new era of detente with the US. While visiting Washington in 1995, Yeltsin got stinking drunk, slipped out of Blair House, and was found wandering along Pennsylvania Avenue in his underwear (boxers, not briefs). Secret Service agents said he was attempting to hail a cab and, with slurred tongue, said he wanted to order a pizza.
USA Today reports:
The next night, Yeltsin eluded security forces again when he climbed down back stairs to the Blair House basement. A building guard took Yeltsin for a drunken intruder until Russian and U.S. agents arrived on the scene and rescued him.
Some hosts, those Clintons.
