(Newser) – While President Obama had his hands full with the Secret Service prostitute scandal in Colombia, Hillary Clinton was partying at a trendy cafe in Cartagena. It was badass turn No. 2 for Clinton, who's undergoing a reputation refurbishment as a take-no-guff secretary of state thanks to the Texts from Hillary blog that features fake kickass texts from Clinton (who even got in on the joke with a real text). Now it appears that she's actually ... fun-loving. She danced and swigged a brewsky—although the Washington Post said she was "sipping beer"—in AFP-Getty photos at the Cafe Havana the night before the Summit of the Americas ended yesterday. The last viral photo of Clinton showed her hard at work on a flight to Libya.
