Hillary Clinton is leaving her job as Secretary of State with no immediate career plans. CNN's Jill Dougherty reports.
As Hillary Clinton exits the State Department, CNN's Kate Bolduan looks at the history of Clinton and President Obama's relationship.
Rep. Darrell Issa says he is "disappointed" that Secy. Hillary Clinton's Benghazi testimony "didn't have more answers."
Fran Townsend and Jake Tapper discuss Secretary Clinton's testimony before Congress on the Benghazi attack.
Hillary Clinton is being treated for a blood cot located in a blood vessel, in a vein that drains blood away from the brain. Dr. Sanjay Gupta describes how doctors evaluate the condition, and what procedures they could use to help her recover. "They gave her blood thinners and they hope that eventually by thinning the blood, that clot will start to dissolve," he says.
On AC360 Wednesday, Sen. John McCain responds to Hillary Clinton telling reporters that an accountability review board will look at all aspects of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. She made a point of saying that they won't be "cherry-picking" stories and documents about the incident. Clinton was referring to e-mails sent on the day of the assault to the White House, State Department and FBI identifying an Islamist group as taking credit, which they later denied.
"I'm all for a thorough and complete investigation, but certain facts are known and there continues to be contradictions within the government. And we now find out, we members of Congress, rather than being briefed, we find out from the news media," said McCain. He told Anderson he doesn't expect that the results of the review board will be made public until after the November 6 election.
Fareed Zakaria and Fran Townsend discuss the timing and motivation behind Secretary Clinton telling CNN's Elise Labott that she takes responsibility for the attacks in Benghazi, Libya that left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Stevens.

Reading tea leaves is not science. And what I'm about to discuss is an epic tea-leaf read. But it could make for an interesting strategy for 2012. Suspend a little disbelief and read on.
Here's the background. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hasn't spoken much on domestic policy since she took the foreign affairs gig. For someone so vocal during the campaign, it's been clear she's purposely sticking to her charter and staying out of domestic affairs.
Yesterday, according to Ben Smith at Politico.com, Hillary spoke to the Brookings Institution on national security strategy. That's exactly what you'd expect from SecState.
But then she took an interesting foray into domestic affairs by saying, "The rich are not paying their fair share in any nation that is facing the kind of employment issues..."
The comment itself is what got Politico's attention, but her rare move into domestic policy is what caught mine. Although Mrs. Clinton prefaced her statement by saying it was her personal opinion, that made it even more interesting.
Why would she say such a thing when she's been so disciplined about her messaging? Especially with China and Korea heating up, the Middle East still simmering, and all sorts of other threats and risks across the world - why would she move to the topic of wealth disparity?
Well, here's one idea. What if she's getting ready to go back on the domestic stage? How could it possibly make sense for her or for President Obama?

Haiti must restore its political system, and hold elections, as well as repair the vast physical damage from the January earthquake, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Haitian President Rene Preval said Tuesday.
"President Preval made the very important point that we must work toward elections to ensure the security and legitimacy of the Haitian government," Clinton said. Parliamentary elections set for February were postponed and it is unclear whether the presidential election scheduled for the fall can proceed.
"I assured President Preval that the United States would work with the international community to hold elections as soon as appropriate," Clinton said during a question and answer session at the State Department.

Military officials from NATO and its 28 member states descended on Washington last week for a series of discussions about rethinking how the alliance should transform itself in an era when its scope has expanded beyond traditional Cold War boundaries.
The seminar was hosted by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who is chairing a group of experts appointed by the NATO secretary-general to recommend a new "Strategic Concept" for the alliance, governing how it perceives and responds to threats.
The group heard from some pretty heavy hitters: U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, all of whom aptly acknowledged the alliance is facing a new strategic landscape with new enemies, ideologies and battle tactics that threaten its collective security.
