Hillary Clinton Fractures Elbow

Hillary Clinton was on her way to the White House Wednesday when she fell and fractured her right elbow, says her chief of staff, Cheryl Mills.

Clinton had to cancel her meeting with Angelina Jolie due to the injury. She was supposed to join Jolie at a World Refugee Day event and present awards at the American Foreign Service Association.

"Secretary Clinton appreciates the professionalism and kindness she received from the medical team who treated her this evening and looks forward to resuming her full schedule soon," Mills said in a statement.

Clinton was reportedly treated for the fracture at The George Washington University Hospital and later released. Sadly she will have to undergo surgery in the coming week to fix the fracture.

We were so excited about the idea of Hillary and Angelina joining forces for World Refugee Day, but it looks like Angie will have to step up and present the award herself.

Wishing Hillary a speedy recovery!
