Clinton left New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where she was admitted on Sunday for treatment, reports CNN. "Her medical team advised her that she is making good progress on all fronts, and they are confident she will make a full recovery," said a spokesman. He added that "she's eager to get back to the office," but didn't specify when that would happen.
