Hillary Clinton in hospital with blood clot after fall
bbc ^

Posted on 12/30/2012 6:12:24 PM PST by traumer

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been admitted to hospital in New York with a blood clot, officials say.

Mrs Clinton suffered a concussion earlier this month after fainting and falling down.

At the time, she was reported to have had a stomach virus and to have passed out after becoming dehydrated.

Mrs Clinton is due to stand down as secretary of state before US President Barack Obama officially begins his second term in January.

Doctors discovered the clot during a follow-up examination on Sunday, her spokesman Philippe Reines said.

Mrs Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants. She was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where she will remain for the next 48 hours so that doctors can monitor her medication.

She is expected back at her desk on Monday, Mr Reines said.

Mrs Clinton is due to give evidence before a Congressional committee on 10 January in connection with the attack in September on the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi.

The US ambassador to Libya and three American officials were killed in the incident.

Mrs Clinton was appointed secretary of state at the start of Mr Obama's first term, in January 2009.

Her most recent foreign trip was to Dublin earlier this month.

Yep. She needs more time to craft the best story possible. Wonder if Bill or Huma are with her.

Sounds like an SIE (Subpoena-Induced Embolism).

During the Salem witch trials, the defendant was adjudged to be innocent if she drowned since we all know that witches cannot drown.

By the same token, I believe Her Thighness will be clearly innocent if she dies of this clot.

I hope she’s innocent.

assuming it’s all true, it probably was the clot that caused the other stuff.

Great medical coverage considering it is on a Sunday just before New Years. I think she had a small stroke early on and is now inoculating public opinion.

I dislike the Clintons as much as the rest of you, but am withholding any judgment on this until or if we get the truth.

If she is seriously ill, then she needs our prayers. If she’s seriously lying - then she needs our prayers.

I don’t know what to think giving their past history (present as well) of lying, but sure don’t want to bring a false accusation against anyone.

So, I choose to sit on the sidelines regarding this issue.

My concern when she does croak is what’ll happen to the FReepers with her name in their nicks?!

I agree with you...I really have a lot of reasons for despising her but eventually she’s going to die like anyone else and we shouldn’t necessarily jump to the conclusion that this is fake.

What if she has been failing for quite a while and this was the reason Benghazi wasn’t protected properly? What if the zero administration has been covering up for her being not all there and this caused the death of our people in Libya? Remember when she read the statement after the deaths - she sounded like she was reading to a 2 year old - I thought it was just her way but maybe something was wrong then.

We will most likely find out many - but probably not all - answers very soon.

Sympathy and prayers for the Evil on top, little or no empathy for the suffering on the bottom. Spare me.

These serious health issues may be used as an excuse for Benghazi, but these folks have staffs who should handle issues. We still need to know what happened in real time the night of the attack, and who gave the stand down order.

She traveled too much, was in that job too long. I don’t much agree with here but nobody can argue herat work ethic in that position.

I’m with you on this. Blood clots are serious business. I do not wish sickness on anybody.

Isn’t this type of thing what the Russians did to their “inconvenient” apparatchiks?

Bunch of crappola.
She’s getting liposuction and a face lift for her presidential run.

Hey everyone......Give poor Hillary a break. I heard she got in a lovers quarrel with Huma, Huma hit her on the head with a large phallic device and then dumped her. Apparently, she’s absolutely heartbroken.

She needs to receive “our prayers” in a prison cell.

Whatever she has done in this life, will be judged by a higher authority than us. She’s already in a prison cell - I’ll let you figure out my statement on your own.
