Clinton To Return To Work Next Week
PEMA LEVY 5:36 PM EST, THURSDAY DECEMBER 27, 2012
After three weeks recuperating from a stomach virus and subsequent concussion, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will return to work next week, Foreign Policy reported Thursday.
Clinton's ongoing recovery will still prevent her from flying abroad, but will allow plans to move forward for her to testify in open hearing on the Sept. 11 attack on Benghazi, testimony that she was unable to give -- as per her doctor's orders -- on Dec. 20. Her return to a public schedule could also end the weeks of conspiracy theorizing and wild speculation about whether or not she was faking or misrepresenting her illness to avoid testifying.
"The secretary continues to recuperate at home. She had long planned to take this holiday week off, so she had no work schedule. She looks forward to getting back to the office next week and resuming her schedule," Clinton aide Philippe Reines told The Cable.

3. She fainted, fell, hit head.
Reported in the news a couple weeks ago.
It probably took a few hours or so to determine cause of the fainting.
There was much speculaton and concern at time of the report.
