WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who skipped an overseas trip this past week because of a stomach virus, sustained a concussion after fainting, the State Department said Saturday.

The 65-year-old Clinton, who's expected to leave her job soon, was recovering at home after the incident last week and is being monitored by doctors, according to a statement by aide Philippe Reines.

No further details were immediately available.

The State Department said Clinton was dehydrated because of the virus, fainted and sustained a concussion. She will continue to work from home in the week ahead and looks forward to returning to the office "soon," the statement said.

1. apparently pinto will be round shortly to lock this.

 

There's a duplicate post somewhere and Clinton doesn't deserve duplicates.

No I jest, it's just the rules.

3. Nope, there's one from an hour or so ago.

 

pinto just locked the one and the OPer put a comment in Meta about it.

It's here:

If pinto doesn't lock yours, then there's really a problem with equally enforcing the rules.

4. BTW, I get the trying to check. The search abilities on here suck big time.

 

I usually have more luck going straight to google and putting in my query followed by "democraticunderground.com" than to use the one embedded in the site.
