    well I am sure FoxNews and all those right wingers that accused her of faking it will be there to greet her and give her well wishes as she is released.

    Prayers are with you Hillary. We need you to get well. If a Democratic is to run this great county, it has to be you.

    I'm so happy to hear that Hillary is out of the hospital and on the mend: best wishes to her for a full recovery!

    Well, I hope she has a full recovery, just like I hope the same for GHW Bush. How sad that during this
    scarey time for her family, the likes of John Bolton, Sean Hannity, and others at Fox had to demean
    her illness and accuse her of "avoiding" testifying about Benghazi. Any chance of apologies from
    them? No way.
    Get Well, Mrs. Clinton.

    I graciously thank God for hearing and answering all those who faithfully joined hands in praying for our mom, Mrs Clinton while in hospital. God will bless you.
    Also, I still ask you all to keep on committing this great woman before God’s Cherubim for continuous protection and let HIM perfect his healing in her.
    God blessed you and happy new year 2013.

    Stay healthy Hilary. We need you in 2016 even if you don't run for President.
    You showed US and the world that even after defeat you (and President Clinton) still have the ability to put country first before personal gain and you did it with grace and dignity and no sour grapes.
    Something completely missing on the party of he 11 NO! mcnasty and others should take notice but their hatred continues to blind them to what is best for the coiuntry.
