Probably no conclusion should be drawn...

Hitler, who was a teetotaler, had very low opinion of Winston Churchill: in an opinion he repeated often he said Sir Winston was an "undisciplined swine who is drunk eight hours out of every twenty-four."

Today, in response to Margaret Thatcher's death, an Argentine newspaper opined that one of the reasons for her ill health was that the victor of the Falklands War "had suffered the ravages of too many gin and tonics,"

During the American Civil War, when someone complained to him that Grant was a drunk, Lincoln responded "Find out what Grant drinks and send a barrel of it to each of my other generals!"
