More on Clinton's fracture

From NBC's Libby Leist

President Obama called Secretary of StateĀ Clinton last night -- he was one of first to call -- after she fractured her elbow, according to the State Department.

She fell in the basement of State Department on her way to her car around 5 p.m. She was with Af/Pak envoy Richard Holbrooke, and they were heading to the White House for a meeting.

They went back to her office to get examined, and then went to the hospital after that. It appears a simple fracture, and she is working from home.

No decision has been made on whether she will travel next week. She is supposed to go to Greece and Italy at end of next week. But she is scheduled for surgery next week.

Also, Bill and Chelsea Clinton are in D.C. now with her -- they came in last night.
