(Newser) – Hillary Clinton continues to recuperate at home but will be back at work in her Washington office at some point next week, reports Politico. Clinton is "sounding terrific, upbeat, and raring to go," says spokeswoman Victoria Nuland. The secretary of state was discharged from the hospital yesterday following treatment for a blood clot in her head. Meanwhile, expected successor John Kerry picked up a mountain of briefing papers ahead of his confirmation hearings and will begin reporting to the State Department regularly tomorrow, reports AP.
