Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joked about her broken elbow today, telling reporters, “I'm engaged in a different form of arms control, I think.”
Clinton fractured her right elbow when she fell at the State Department on June 17th. Her arm was in a sling today when she took questions during a brief news conference.
When a reporter asked if it’s still painful she answered, “It is. It is. Don't break your elbow. That's my last word of advice.”
“But you know,” she added, “every day gets a little bet better.”
