Hillary Clinton hospitalized after doctors discover blood clot

(CNN) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was hospitalized Sunday after doctors discovered a blood clot during a follow-up exam related to a concussion she suffered this month, her spokesman said.

She is expected to remain at New York Presbyterian Hospital for the next 48 hours so doctors can monitor her condition and treat her with anticoagulants, said Philippe Reines, deputy assistant secretary of state.

    What were republicans saying about Mrs Clinton not long after her concussion? ....shame on them! Is this what we really want in the highest chambers of our government? The cynical thinking and hubris that has permeated the GOP knows no boundaries! God bless and help her in a speedy recovery.

    This certainly doesn't help the 2016 chances if she plans on running. I am sure that this would be disclosed on the pre-election medical exam.

    Here's wishing you a speedy and complete recovery, Madame Secretary. Blood clots are not to be trifled with, and I'm also relieved that she is hospitalized while on blood thinners (which also can cause problems if not watched carefully). Best wishes, Hillary: you're in my family's thoughts and prayers.

    I hope John Bolton has the decency to send her flowers after accusing her of lying about her concussion to get out of a congressional hearing....but I doubt it-there's nothing decent about John Bolton....
