Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.

It was a painful father-daughter confrontation over alcohol, years in the making, that both Jim Klobuchar and Amy Klobuchar would describe as a defining moment in their respective memoirs.

In 1993, Jim Klobuchar was the star columnist for the Star Tribune, a Minnesota celebrity who'd just been arrested a third time for drinking and driving. His daughter Amy, now a U.S. senator and Democratic presidential candidate, was a young lawyer in Minneapolis who joined him at a meeting with counselors evaluating his addiction.
