Richard Holbrooke Hospitalized

The State Department has more trouble on its hands than WikiLeaks: Richard Holbrooke, the State Department’s special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan, was hospitalized Friday morning after feeling ill. He was apparently meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when he gasped and walked out of his own office. He is being treated for a blood clot at the same hospital that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is being treated for kidney stones.
