Clinton talking with staff on phone from hospital, State Department says

It may only be a small update, but it seems we have a bit of good news about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's current health.

Clinton has been speaking with her staff and is active on the phone from the New York hospital where she's being treated for a blood clot between her skull and brain, according to State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.

Nuland told reporters at an off-camera briefing Wednesday that there is nothing new to report about Clinton's condition and treatment beyond the Monday statement from her doctors.

    I wish Secretary of State Clinton a continuation of her strong recovery.
    She will make a wonderful president after her election in 2016.

    One of best things that could happen to improve upon the americans gaining back control over their government is if this womans illness were to force her out of any official and unofficial conections with it.
    Not wishing her ill, just as an opinion by someone who cares not either way if that Pit Viper lives or dies.
    She is the most powerfull and influential figure in world today and she wields that power in a cold blooded calculating way.
    There are no more dangerous personages to world peace and the advancement of all mankind than Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama, which personalities came from same political body and are no more than rwo heafs of the same

    Note the press coverage and the complete downplay of her illness and wonder would this of been the case as in past when a political figure became ill and then had almost hourly updates on their condition.
    Obama has no where's the political connections in the UN governibg structures, finance world domestic or foreign. Nor prtsnal aquaitence with worlds powerfull as she does.
    The number of Clintonistas within every branch of government is staggering and the same goes to every national greenie and Worldwide NGOs that work for their and our government.
    Without her and her innergroup there is no one else that could replace her even if she stepped out of political spotlight.
    At least anyone who could remotely claim to be independent of her contrl.
    None.
    She falls and heads would roll back into obscurity by the hundreds if not thpusands.

    @ Russle Brown:
    Do you even know what the position of Commander in Chief is.
    What the duties and responsabilitys of that position entail.
    What were the original intent and when was that position assumed to be ineffect inorder to perform that duty.
    You may vote for a commander in chief but you are supposed to be voting for A president.
    No wonder this country act like an insane assylum.
    And to use that name in the context of these postings is blasphemy.
    As for my own useage I know I am but aspeck of dust and make no vows in that name
