Going home: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton left New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Wednesday after being treated for a blood clot
Republicans have been battering the Obama Administration and any officials associated with the September 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate, which killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
The Washington Post reports that Clinton 'remains committed' to appearing in front of the Congressional committees, though no date has been set.
The new House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman, Rep Edward Royce, said the government accountability report on the attack points to 'an unacceptable failure of leadership' leading up to the attack.
Some Senate Republicans have threatened to block the confirmation of Sen John Kerry, Clinton's successor as Secretary of State, until Clinton testifies.
Clinton has long said she planned to leave the job as the nation's top diplomat after Obama's first term.
. Her physicians say she suffered no stroke or neurological damage as a result of the clot. She is expected to make a full recovery.
Clinton's illness led her to cancel an overseas trip and scheduled testimony before Congress about the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
When her absence was reported, several pundits and newspapers accused Clinton of making her illness seem worse than it was to dodge questions from lawmakers over the attack, which has been blamed on lax security installed by the State Department.
The New York Post called her concussion a 'head fake.' Florida Rep Allan West said Clinton had a case of the 'Benghazi flu,' while Fox News contributer Charles Krauthammer dubbed it an 'acute Benghazi allergy.'
Hot seat: Republicans have demanded the Secretary of State's appearance to testify about the security failures that led to the attack

I have no memory, of anything at all.
Good to see that Bill made it back OK from guiding Santa’s sleigh.
Chelsea looks pretty damn hot standing there next to mom.
Her mind is jello.
So would Rosie (ewwwwwww).
The Washington Post reports that Clinton ‘remains committed’ to appearing in front of the Congressional committees, though no date has been set.
How brave! Despite a concussion and a blood clot, SHE will TESTIFY, brothers and sisters....TESTIFY...endangering her own well-being and health so that YOU can get the answers YOU WANT and DESERVE!
I can hear it now...”Uh...Thats one of the things I just can’t recall, Senator....”
[Did I mention I HATE kabuki theater?]
One think I note of the picture Bill and Chelsea look like they actually may be from the same gene pool. She alway had the Web Hubble look. This picture makes me take a double take.
Very odd they felt the need to include what appears to be a doctor in the photo, as they are leaving
She still looks like Webb Hubbel not the fake daddy, Monica’s boyfriend, behind her.
The sun must have been blinding. Those are some big sunglasses.
Slick seems to be in high spirits.
Brings a tear to the eye....or a gag to the throat depending upon political affiliation or IQ.
...to coin a phrase!
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Isn’t that the “stealing-the-silver-from-the-White-House” coat Hillary has on?
Prepare for a puff pass, given her trevails. The Dems will be apoplectic with any serious questions posed to the Perpetually Untouchable One, and then there’s the hired guns media serving as Evita’s personal protection.
Riding the Xmas sleigh is a lot less dangerous than riding the Halloween witch's broom across the Harvest Moon sky.
Chelsea has “fish lips” neither Bill or Hillary have them...
Plastic surgery .....
Who needs guns when you can flash a picture like that!
Ooo, maybe she’ll take a few perfunctory questions, act like she’s dizzy and faint in front of the cameras. Then every leftest news channel and rag can show her being carted off by EMTs and accuse the GOP of trying to kill her.
“This hearing is closed!”
Whitewater 2.5: Delving into the realm of the incompetent.
Notice her neck and eyes are covered.
But if you are going to do plastic surgery why not wait a few weeks until you resign your post?
How can you do it on the taxpayers dime? Vacation time?
The Corleones were a crime family worthy of several films. This bunch of grifters, not so much. But we have been subjected to them for 20 years now.
It is odd.
I have never left a hospital, or seen anyone else leave a hospital, who wasn't in a wheel chair.
Liability issues for the hospital, I think.
So, where is her wheel chair and a nurse to wheel her out?
Chelsea has had some plastic surgery. I think her chin was improved via surgery. Don't know if anything else was done.
Those 2 don’t have any qualms whatsoever about spending taxpayers money on themselves. They’re entitled you know. Must be nice to have a home in the country courtesy of you and me since it just so happens they charge the Secret Service 10 grand a month......about the same if not the same as their mortgage. Please Lord, make these people go away....:(
Hey! Isn’t that the Hibbell kid?
"I can't recall, you know, because I fell and had a blood clot in my brain. Next question."
"You know I can't recall that one either, what with the blood clot and what-not."
Maybe she lifted a few things from the hospital wearing that coat!
One look at her tells me that she’s not going to be president - ever. By 2016 she’s going to look 5x worse - if she’s around at all. I think we are seeing the end of Hillary! as a public figure. Of course this opinion is worth what anyone paid to read it :)
Maybe she had eyes done, hence the sunglasses. Is anyone else wearing sunglasses?! HA!
Her forehead looks a little "botox-y".
If she did her neck and "laugh lines" around her mouth and cheeks, she needs to get her money back.
The debate is settled AND closed.
No ... not Hillary (LOL!!) The comment I was responding to was about Chelsea looking more like Bill in that picture rather than Webb Hubbell. Some years back, it looked like Chelsea had some plastic surgery - she certainly became more attractive and less ‘Hubbell-like’.
“”””Chelsea looks pretty damn hot standing there next to mom””
Put down the bong.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list

Unlike many at this forum who think all of this is a conspriacy to keep her from testifying I say that is nonsense. Hillary is a trained professional liar and obfuscator and will have no problem cleaning the floor with these amateur RINOs. The dems will treat her gingerly and make the timid questioning by the RINOs look mean. It will be much ado about nothing. She will obfuscate, bob and weave, admit we should have done more, state we have learned lessons and not condescend to providing any useful information. We will never get the truth out of this administration.
Lapsing into a coma any time now...
GOP is once again getting played.
“Look at them picking on that poor, sick, dying woman!”
I can hear it now.
All that work for nothing.
She hits herself in the head with a hammer to cause a blood clot on her non-functioning marxist brain to avoid testifying and now she’s going to testify. At least she’ll have an excuse for giving short choppy sentences that mean and go nowhere.
This is a lovely picture of her rapist husband thingy and her glamourous daughter. Billy Goat looks like a randy old homeless reprobate.
This is truly a photo of a happy and well adjusted family.
Wonder how many abortions Hillary had before giving birth to their only child?
Even at that she'd still be an improvement.
if shes around at all.
She'd still be an improvement...
Fully agree, that being said, she's not above any theater to further damage the evil, mean, nasty webublicans and strengthen her own brand.
I have to agree. She does now and will look more later, withered.
