Chelsea Clinton told Matt Lauer Tuesday on TODAY that her mother, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton , is “as vibrant as ever” after sustaining a concussion and blood clot in her head, and that the Secretary is expected to return to full health soon.
“She is exuding the energy, the vibrancy and certainly the mental acuity that she always has,” Chelsea Clinton told Lauer. “I’m so grateful that she is not only fine, but healthy and vibrant and strong and, God willing, will be for the next 65 years of her life.”
Secretary Clinton returned to work on January 7 after a nearly month-long absence. Her illness prevented her from testifying on the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the deaths of four Americans. Clinton is scheduled to testify before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on January 23, 2013.
