I also heard that her dog ate her homework.

That is really uncalled for Michael H.

Who was to blame for the original September 11 attacks. Did the Republicans make a hue and cry over that?

I hope she recovers quickly. She is a fantastic person and has done so much in her life for her country whether you agree or not.

I agree with Mary S! Hillary has done so much for our country. She deserves respect and well wishes!

Oh no - wonder if she is infected with norovirus? A concussion is no laughing matter. Get well soon, Madame Secretary!

Noted Carrie. Sending get well wishes for Hillary Clinton. She is such a hard worker.She seems to be looking a little bit peaked the last few times I have seen her on TV.

It's more than likely a scam....we've witnessed plenty of those over the past four years. Now Hillary won't have to testify on the Benghazi deal. Perfect! Liberals have no shame.

Was this so she wouldn't have to testify?

Christeen, this will "delay" her testifying anyway. I wouldn't put it past the liberals to fake a concussion. They simply have no shame. Chicago politics at work in the White House.....we've got four more years of this crap.

Speaking of "no shame"--didn't Laura Bush get sick after a state dinner overseas, and then write in her book that it was a "suspected poisoning"?

Dianna, I cannot speak to that because I, like you, cannot know if, in fact, it is true or not. The Benghazi situation is huge. Hillary is more than likely to blame for it. However, the Clinton's don't like being "wrong" so this can easily be a scam to delay her testifying. We'll all see how it works out. There's a great deal of "drama" in the White House these days and these people can "stage" anything to force fed the stupid Americans who pay all the bills.

so sad that we still have so many people blinded by their beliefs....Mr. Obama's one proven wrong is the idea we are "United States" we are "divided states" with so many unwilling to say anything good about the other side and always living in conspiracy mode.....

May Mrs. Clinton get well and continue to do her job until she chooses......

Must be sad to be someone who lives life thinking everything is a lie......

If Hillary Clinton actually had the flu and was dehydrated and actually fainted and got a concussion, you can believe that I want her to get well and get beyond this illness. However, if, in fact, the liberals are using this to make up a story to delay her testifying in the Benghazi situation, well, what can I say? I'm not a liberal with blinders on. I've watched this administration for four years and I wouldn't put anything past them.

Anne P. --I thought the norovirus too. Time will tell. Bless all who love Mother Earth.

Carrie it is unfortunate that you have no sense of humor. You must be a lot of fun at a party. You might try loosening up your girdle a little. That way you don't have to call someone mean spirited when they make a joke. I suspect that this is a scam to keep Ms. Clinton from testifying about the Bhengazi travesty. American heroes died there and they were thrown to the wolves by the government that they served. This could be worse than watergate. No Americans died at watergate.

Hoping Mrs. Clinton gets well soon. That is a terrible virus! I had to take my young adult son to the E.R. for dehydration because of it some months back. Those dissing on Hillary regarding Benghazi should've been badgering their leaders after over 3000 people died on 9/ produce factual info open to the public, to not push the Patriot Act, to punish all who outted CIA agent Valerie Plame, and to not invade Iraq. What happened in Benghazi was a tragedy that occurred within a very tangled web. The Powers That Be--from both sides of the aisle, don't want that web untangled.
