A view of New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York, December, 31, 2012 where US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been hospitalized. Clinton was at a New York hospital Monday, receiving treatment for a blood clot discovered in the aftermath of a concussion suffered earlier this month. The latest health scare for the globe-trotting Clinton will likely keep her out of the public eye a bit longer, just as she prepares to step down after four years as America's top diplomat. Clinton, 65, fell ill with a stomach bug on her return from a trip to Europe earlier this month that caused the former first lady to become severely dehydrated and faint, suffering a concussion. 'In the course of a follow-up exam today, Secretary Clinton's doctors discovered a blood clot had formed, stemming from the concussion she sustained several weeks ago,' her aide Philippe Reines said in a statement.
