Hillary Clinton returning to work next week

Washington (CNN) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will return to work next week after a nasty bout with stomach flu and a concussion sidelined her for three weeks.

"The Secretary continues to recuperate at home. She had long planned to take this holiday week off, so she had no work schedule," her spokesman, Deputy Assistant Secretary Philippe Reines said in a statement. "She looks forward to getting back to the office next week and resuming her schedule."

    Give her some more time off – she deserves it – like forever.

    After the events of the past few weeks, Benghazi seems like an incident that occured in a simpler time. The past few weeks has changed this country.

    I assume that there is some doctor approval there somewhere. Is she going to testify in front of Congress?

    Now she might be able to go before Congress and say it's her fault that four Americans were murdered because she would do what they asked for more people to guard them.

    Well, it's about time...otherwise, there would have been a subpoena issued – to the Secretary of State.

    “America is rapidly becoming a nation of takers,” economic blogger Michael Snyder writes. “An increasing number of Americans expect the government to take care of them from the cradle to the grave, and they expect the government to dig into the pockets of others in order to pay for it all.”
