Hillary Clinton breaks elbow on the way to the White House

Posted: 07:55 AM ET

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fractured her right elbow Wednesday during a fall, State Department officials said.

Clinton fell Wednesday afternoon on her way to the White House and was taken to George Washington University Hospital. She was treated and released, and will have surgery to repair her elbow in coming weeks.

"Secretary Clinton appreciates the professionalism and kindness she received from the medical team who treated her this evening and looks forward to resuming her full schedule soon," said Cheryl Mills, a State Department spokeswoman.

Must say about health care that the GOPs are throwing out to the Americans saying ones do not want it Run by the Goverment.It's because they are too busy sleeping with them.The Ins Companies and Banks own the Senate.

The health care that the Senate has is Run by the Goverment and ones that work for the Goverment love their Health care.

Bush's pension is Run by the Goverment.
Bush's Secret Service people are Run by the Goverment
Bush's health care is Run by the Goverment.

If it's good for him then it's good for the rest of us Americans.

@ Judith

Yes, all federal employees receive excellent health care during their work years and also when they retire at very reasonable costs. Wish the local government I work for would have the same!
