"The secretary was in the office this morning. She attended her morning staff meetings. She's already made a few phone calls. She made a bunch of phone calls over the weekend, as well."Kelly also said she has some mobility issues because there's a "big cast" on her arm and its in a sling. And to make matters worse she's right-handed! Kelly went on to say "And she's a right-hander, so ... she's got some dexterity and mobility issues... But she was on top of her game this morning."
It also was announced that Secretary Clinton, on her doctor's advice, will not travel to Europe for two meetings.
Deputy Secretary of State James B. Steinberg will attend the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe meeting in Corfu, Greece, and Undersecretary William Burns will represent the United States at the Group of Eight foreign ministerial meeting in Trieste, Italy, department spokesman Ian Kelly said during a media briefing.
Kelly said Clinton called the foreign ministers of Italy and Greece "to express her regret that she wouldn't be able to attend those two meetings."
