Hillary Clinton talked about her health briefly this evening on 60 Minutes. "I still have some lingering effects from falling on my head," she said. Clinton added, "The doctors tell me that will all recede."

"It's great. It's great," Clinton said of her health. "Now, you know, I still have some lingering effects from falling on my head and having the blood clot. But, you know, the doctors tell me that that will all recede. And so, thankfully, I'm, you know, looking forward to being at full speed."

Steve Kroft, the journalist conducting the interview, asked Clinton about her glasses, but the secretary of state refused to explain the special benefits they might provide to her vision. She'd only say that she suffers from "lingering effects."
