Chelsea Clinton announced on Tuesday that her mother, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, is "doing great" and will be "back to full health very soon."

“She is exuding the energy, the vibrancy and certainly the mental acuity that she always has,” the younger Clinton told Matt Lauer on NBC's "Today Show." “I’m so grateful that she is not only fine, but healthy and vibrant and strong and, God willing, will be for the next 65 years of her life.”

After Secretary Clinton suffered a blood clot scare in December, her family received some relief after doctors explained the blood clot was located between her skull and her brain -- indicating that she'd make a full recovery. The secretary of state returned to work on January 7th.

Clinton announced in January of last year -- and again this month -- that she would take a step back from the political limelight after leaving the administration. In December, President Barack Obama nominated Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) to succeed Clinton as the next secretary of state.
