The impact segment tonight aware in the world is Hillary Clinton she's not been seen in public since taking a fall during a -- with the stomach flu two weeks ago.
We're told that she suffered a concussion and she needs -- rest advised to have an address by doctor meantime she's missed a congressional hearing on -- Ghazi.
President Obama's announcement about her successor and the State Department holiday party.
As you -- you know the media has already crowned her the 2016.
Democratic front runner.
But many -- now wondering if she'll ever get around to testifying about Libya joining us now from New York is Margie -- she's a democratic.
Strategists on -- did I tell you after O'Reilly and I talked about mrs.
Clinton last Thursday.
And I I laid on that line about was the immaculate concussion giving full credit to one -- mines tweaks first came -- but it.
Al Riley laughed -- not one of mrs.
Clinton's top aides emailed me and I got Christmas Eve.
And said look mrs.
Clinton and I'm shocked that you would kind of joke about an issue really did fall and she really has been advised to take -- -- -- -- take them at their word.
I think -- eyes -- a lot of people it is a bit of convenient timing right they see mrs.
Clinton hasn't been seen in public.
If her health is out as badly compromised.
I hope she's getting medical attention I don't know if she's got -- hospital it doesn't look like she has.
But does this mean she will testify after she leaves.
But I don't think this is.
It convenient timing -- mean she has gone to over a hundred countries as secretary of state I feel not just just listening to the hearing about her schedule so.
I I take our word I don't doubt for a second that that she's been ill and if there's anybody who wouldn't be afraid says testify before congress -- it's Hillary Clinton so.
Studies -- testify and we why do you think that.
Because she's been -- so much she has -- continued today get up in and lag get back at their face challenges personal and professional for decades.
Carelessly and -- And then what does that have to do -- Ben -- and I am not trying to be difficult here but she even forget that forget the testimony for a moment right she -- At any point in time after the -- got the attack.
After the Susan Rice fiasco she come -- -- a quick press conference maybe twenty minutes thirty minutes answer questions.
And handsome look I'm -- testify before congress -- we learn more should have gone out of me.
I I -- I think she is incredibly top I think she as an incredible schedule and she's I think if you're a Democrat she's got to be really happy with mrs.
Clinton no doubt about it.
I so I have respect for her a lot of respect in that regard.
Any little -- not I'm just what people are -- A fall how could that -- Hillary Clinton off on you know what -- hitting her head and if it if she did.
I've -- this -- of people are saying that I waited a couple nights ago that I ticker -- word she foul and she -- -- get better something like that.
People like how can you say that I there's just so what's.
Campuses and out there so help us.
Set the set skepticism drastic that I I -- -- I don't think there's a lot of skepticism I saw a poll I think today that showed that she are her favorable -- -- two to one as a scientist Democrats.
Who have strong feelings toward Americans overall she is 66% favorable -- don't think there's anything dance around and I think.
Well I think when that time -- rich and she's feeling better and and you know that that's that's down the road.
You know I don't think this is some manufactured excuse not testify.
Let's go on to Chuck Hagel because he is now.
It looks like his nomination -- might not happen and or it's gonna run into serious problems let now.
Chuck Schumer out liberal senator from New York's senior senator very well respected and Democrat circles.
Are raising questions.
-- implicitly by his reaction on a Sunday show.
Today -- eagle nomination that's out also.
I supported by other Democrats -- seem less than enthusiastic.
About -- -- -- Of course for secretary of defense what's your reaction there especially after this -- rice.
Fiasco at her nominations.
Well I think -- -- right that there are some Democrats want to have a conversation about some pieces of senator cables record.
And and I think that's inappropriate conversation to have I think what makes hate the -- saying and it and a good choice.
Is he is he went earned two purple hearts.
He's bit maverick really his whole career he doesn't.
Haven't really saying necessarily well I'm not -- I -- I'm not I think we have an outlet when he took liberal arts is amazing and we certainly celebrate his service -- honor his service but that doesn't really have anything to do it.
Why he's a good choice now when both Democrats and Republicans.
Seem to have real problems let -- it's just an odd way to go about.
Floating someone not to be secretary defense well.
He had to military background he -- and it background he has a cost cutting back -- his business background administration -- he.
I think it comes to the table and -- independent streak that makes him not part of the partisan bickering.
In Washington that people are really -- up.
And while it's perfectly -- for Democrats that have a conversation.
There are some Republicans moved seem like the senators who cried wolf I -- remember Mitch McConnell saying our number one -- to defeat President Obama.
There's just this sense that a lot of Republicans.
Want to thank the Democrats and 86 am not their problem I think if if he doesn't get nominated it's not because -- -- Republicans -- probably going to be.
Because of the Democrats that Jewish lobby -- adamant in not voting for the Iran Libya sanctions that.
Probably have some Republican opposition as well -- great to see if that -- -- quiet and has done having holiday.
