    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was admitted to New York Presbyterian Hospital Sunday after doctors found a blood clot related to a concussion she suffered earlier this month, the State Department confirmed in a statement. She will be treated with anti-coagulants and monitored for the next 48 hours as doctors “continue to assess her condition” and “determine if any further action is required,” her spokesman said. Clinton was sick with a stomach virus when she fainted and banged her head in mid-December, causing a concussion. She was set to return to work next week after a three-week hiatus.
