During her interview with President Obama on 60 Minutes aired last night, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted that she is still suffering from some of the lingering effects from her concussion.

“I still have some lingering effects from falling on my head and having the blood clot,” she said, when asked about her health. “But, you know, the doctors tell me that that will all recede.”

When interviewer Steve Kroft mentioned Clinton’s glasses, she repeated that she was only suffering from temporary effects.

“I have a lot of sympathy now when I pick up the paper and read about an athlete or one of our soldiers whose had traumatic brain injury,” she continued. “I’d never had anything like that in my family and so, you know, I’m very conscious of how lucky I was.”
