    Kobe broke his fingers and can still play. Clinton is not even a sportsman, so Im pretty sure Clinton is on top of her game.
    Stop attacking our beloved Clinton.

    It's her elbow ...!!!!

    I'm sure someone as smart as Clinton will still know how to use her brain

    Is it my imagination or does the media seem to be reporting on every single detail of this new administration in a way they never reported on the last one? Or maybe it's just me.

    Wishing her a speedy recovery. She has endured more pain than that in her life from her enemies namely the now (Redundant party.)

    She will overcome her surgery with flying colors, she is tough and resilence.

    Wishing you God blessings I will keep you in my prayers.

    Take care.

    I think it's hilarious that she broke her elbow – I bet she'll get an earful about it from her orthopaedic surgeon, should have given her the universal health care "you'll have to wait 2 weeks for us to get to you".

    what job? I don't think King Obama has been letting her do anything....

    From a responsibility point of view it will make no difference. The president has successfully sidelined her. He has carved out the world and given it to those he can trust. Hillary is just the figure head in the pantsuit

    Still the liberals looking to bash Hillary Clinton at every opportunity.

    How will the injury to Sonia Sotomayor affect her nomination to the Supreme Court? Oops, don't go there.

    Lack of intelligence has never affected Brian Todd's ability to draw a pay check so why should a broken elbow be a problem with Hillary.

    If anyone can do 12 things at once while suffering searing pain, it's Hillary Clinton. She should the President right now – we wouldn't have the awful spending race.

    She would straighten out the economy, then tackle the deficit, THEN move to universal health care. That's how grown-ups handle things.

    Our current clown wants everything NOW, no waiting – the usual case with spoiled brats who have a solid steel sense of entitlement.

    Well, America, we've waited this long, we can and should wait a bit longer and go forward with something we can pay for.

    There is a major protest in another part of the world and this is your top article on the political ticker. CNN, who do you have writing these articles a bunch of high schoolers?

    It shouldn't effect her job anymore than it would anyone else in america. COME ON PLEASE> That is a ridiculous heading. Does someone get fired for being sick or injured on the job. She could stay at home and word and do more than what went on in the past eight years.

  17. Fet up with CNN!

    CNN, you are so distasteful...your Ticker starts off on your main screen as "Hillary Clinton's jop to be affected by her injury/surgery"...then you click in and the title changes to "how will Hillary's injury affect her job"....so sick of CNN's bull!

    She'll be fine, just need some rest and relaxation. She couldn't have picked a worse time, though. With Iran and Pakistan in upheavel and North Korea announcing that they will fire a missile toward Hawaii she needs to be at work now more than ever.

    Really CNN? Are you serious? How will it affect her job? Did she fracture her brain?

    Ok, it's not like she has been doing a whole lot to start with... there is tons of foreign affairs issues to be act upon and we never see her anywhere... I wish her good recovery and a few briefing on what is happening in the world could also be good to help her come back and take some decision

    As long as she can talk, she can continue apologizing. As long as she can turn her head, she can continue to ignore North Korea and Iran.

    Her injury doesn't prevent her from continuing to be useless.

    OMG that must hurt. Let nature take its course; don't try and rush the healing process. God Bless.

    Hillary Clinton has always been a strong powerfull inteligent woman. A woman to be admired by all. She is doing a great job for Pres. Obama and our nation. Hopes she mends well and feels better soon.

    I'm at a loss to understand why you would post the heading on the CNN home page "surgery affects Clinton's job." Why is it necessary to be provacative about a bone break fo rsomeone who will no doubt still handle her job competently and capably. I can't recall any instance when you have reported on a man who is injured or required surgery where the heading suggested that their job performance would be compromised.
