Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is denying she's unhappy with her say in foreign affairs in the Obama administration.
In a nationally broadcast interview that aired Monday morning, Clinton told ABC: "I broke my elbow, not my larynx."
There has been speculation that Clinton was chafing over perceived competition in the national security area from Vice President Joe Biden, national security adviser James Jones and special envoys Geoge Mitchell and Richard Holbrooke.
But in the ABC interview, Clinton said flatly: "I couldn't be more satisfied with the amount of time I spend with the president."
Clinton has been hemmed in a bit because of the broken elbow, which she injured in a fall last month while on her way into the White House.
