Taj Mahal Palace Hotel's Luxe Liquor Cabinet for Obama
If President Obama wants to drown out the sorrow of the mid-term elections this week during his visit to India, the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel where the President is staying is ready for the U.S. Commander-In-Chief.
Despite the fact that Obama is known to only rarely imbibe alcohol (just beer in public) , the hotel, according to media reports in India, is stocking the following to offer the President. With a selection like this, Obama might be tempted to tipple to take the edge off the Republican takeover of the House of Representatives.
