Working from home, Clinton 'on the mend'

(CNN) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is "on the mend" and working from home, the State Department’s spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Clinton had been recovering from a bout of stomach flu last week when she fainted and ended up with a concussion. Clinton informed the Senate Foreign Relations and House Foreign Affairs committees this weekend that she would be unable to testify at upcoming hearings about the deadly events in Benghazi, Libya, at the advice of her doctors. In her place, deputies Thomas Nides and Bill Burns will testify on Thursday.

    Very glad to hear that Hillary is feeling better. Stay home and enjoy the holidays. Have Bill bake you some of those chocolate chip cookies.

    "If guns are outlawed, ONLY criminals will have guns." So IF "guns are outlawed" THEN who are those criminals? Well . . . who's got (going to have) the guns? Who's "outlawing" (making the law) + (enforcing the law)? The police. ONLY THE POLICE WILL HAVE THE GUNS. "If guns are outlawed - ONLY criminals will have guns". "THAT" is my experience here on Earth. And then they find a woman.

    She's "on the mend" but where is her concern for the families of the murdered victims in Benghazi and their healing process?? She and the president are to be held accountable for the tragedy that occured on 9/11. Her recent illness does not exempt her from her participation and responsibilites regarding that horrific night, and the obvious lying and cover-up that took place over the flag draped caskets of the victims.

    Where? Behind her.

    Hey, I'll trade you an Obama administration Benghazi Attack prosecution for a Bush administration Iraqi War prosecution. Deal?
