Hillary Clinton discharged from hospital

[Update, 6:31 p.m. ET] U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was discharged Wednesday evening from New York Presbyterian Hospital, where she'd been admitted Sunday because of a blood clot, the State Department said.

"Her medical team advised her that she is making good progress on all fronts, and they are confident she will make a full recovery," the department said. "She's eager to get back to the office, and we will keep you updated on her schedule as it becomes clearer in the coming days. Both she and her family would like to express their appreciation for the excellent care she received from the doctors, nurses and staff at New York Presbyterian Hospital Columbia University Medical Center.

[Update, 5:50 p.m. ET] U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's office hasn't issued a statement saying that she had been released from New York Presbyterian Hospital.

CNN staff outside the hospital had seen Clinton, her husband and daughter get into a van outside the hospital on Wednesday.

[Initial post, 4:13 p.m. ET] U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has left New York Presbyterian Hospital, according to CNN staff at the scene.

Clinton had been admitted Sunday due to a blood clot that was discovered during a follow-up exam related to a concussion she suffered last month.

      Let's hope that Kerry or whoever fills her shoes can be half the diplomat she's been.
