Obama Doctor: Moderate Alcohol Intake Recommended

So, does Barack Obama need to "moderate" his alcohol intake?

The President has not quit smoking, as he promised Michelle he would do. His doctor said Obama is using "nicotine replacement therapy, self-use" to help him stop smoking. All those White House parties - smokers find it difficult to drink and not smoke, so...

His health was described as excellent and he does not have to return for another medical until 2012. Obama, who is 48, has 20-20 vision, weighs 179 llbs in his shoes and clothes, and requires little medication. Apart from the nicotine replacement, he uses a non-steroid anti-inflammatory medication associated with physical activity: he regularly plays basketball at the White House.
The doctors also recommended "moderation of alcohol intake".
If a person is capable of being the president of the United States, that person should be disciplined enough to quit smoking. This president is very disciplined in some areas, mainly doing what he wants to do, when he wants to do it. So what do you think about the recommendation to "moderate alcohol intake?"
