Sir John A. was, at times, a lawyer, soldier, businessman and politician. If you want politicians who have only done one thing, Sir John A. is not your man.

As to the booze, he himself is famous for making jokes about his own drinking. To paraphrase one of his own jokes, I would prefer Sir John A. drunk to many of our present politicians sober.

And no, I am not a fan of Mr. Harper. Among other things, by advising the Crown to prorogue parliament when he had lost the confidence of the Commons, he succeeded in temporarily making Canada no longer a democratic country. A rather dirty trick. In my opinion, the Governor General should have exercised his constitutional "referee" role and refused the advice.
