New: Hillary Clinton for HRC’s Americans for Marriage Equality
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains why she supports marriage equality
WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department says Secretary of State Hillary Clinton plans to return to work next week after being treated for a blood clot in her head.
Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland says Clinton is resting at home but is speaking with senior staff and is, quote, “sounding terrific, upbeat and raring to go.”
She says Clinton looks forward to returning to her Washington office next week, although a date hasn’t been set. Doctors have advised her to avoid international travel for now.
Clinton was discharged Wednesday from a New York hospital, three days after doctors diagnosed a blood clot during a follow-up exam stemming from a concussion she suffered in December. Doctors are treating the clot with blood thinners and say they expect she will fully recover.
A photo released by the State Department shows Secretary of State Hillary Clinton watching her husband deliver remarks Wednesday night at the Democratic National Convention.
Hillary Clinton didn’t watch the speech live because she was busy meeting with leaders of the tiny nation of East Timor, 9,963 miles from Charlotte, North Carolina. According to reporters traveling with the secretary of state, Clinton watched a taped version around midnight eastern time.
