Ok, a "blood clot stemming from a concussion" would be a subdural hematoma, but they would never treat that with anti-coagulants, which would make it worse. A blood clot might form in a cerebral venous sinus, of which there is one behind the ear and between the brain and the skull, and would be treated with anti-coagulants, but that can't be caused by a concussion. So it's not making sense, but I tend to go with venous thrombosis because they are using anti-coagulants to treat it and because of how they described its location.Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, perhaps the most famous current female political figure, has fallen ill. "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. She is being treated with anti-coagulants and is at New York-Presbyterian Hospital so that they can monitor the medication over the next 48 hours," a spokesman for the former first lady said yesterday in a statement.
So if it's a cerebral venous sinus thrombosis the question is what caused this all of a sudden in someone of H's age? It comes down to cancer, severe inflammation due to an autoimmune disease, or a bad mastoid or ear infection. It's not usually a simple problem.
Merely speculation on my part, or course.
“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. – J Robert Oppenheimer.
For those who can "connect the dots" between Benghazi and Hillary's recent health problems, you might be a good example of someone exhibiting patternicity.
Patternicity: Finding Meaningful Patterns in Meaningless Noise: Scientific AmericanTraditionally, scientists have treated patternicity as an error in cognition. A type I error, or a false positive, is believing something is real when it is not (finding a nonexistent pattern). A type II error, or a false negative, is not believing something is real when it is (not recognizing a real pattern—call it “apat*ternicity”). In my 2000 book How We Believe (Times Books), I argue that our brains are belief engines: evolved pattern-recognition machines that connect the dots and create meaning out of the patterns that we think we see in nature. Sometimes A really is connected to B; sometimes it is not. When it is, we have learned something valuable about the environment from which we can make predictions that aid in survival and reproduction. We are the ancestors of those most successful at finding patterns. This process is called association learning, and it is fundamental to all animal behavior, from the humble worm C. elegans to H. sapiens.
Unfortunately, we did not evolve a Baloney Detection Network in the brain to distinguish between true and false patterns. We have no error-detection governor to modulate the pattern-recognition engine. (Thus the need for science with its self-correcting mechanisms of replication and peer review.) But such erroneous cognition is not likely to remove us from the gene pool and would therefore not have been selected against by evolution.
And then comes this:
Clinton Injured, US Navy Seal Killed In Secret US Mission To Iran?
:January 1, 2013 Gunny G provides what has to be the most way out “news report” I've ever read. It has to be perfect for you conspiracy nuts. What makes it more interest is that it comes along when other bloggers claimed she was in Santa Domingo – then shows up at the hospital in New York. Anyhow, enjoy!
The European Union Times is reporting a very different story about Hillary Clinton than what is coming out of U.S. mainstream media. I have no way to gauge the veracity of the EUT story, but merely publish it here for the record

Oh my goodness gracious! How this would explain everything! She might even get a medal for such heroism.
On a serious side, could medical problems like this remove her chances to trying to become Queen Rodham?
