Attorney General Michael Mukasey was given a "clean bill of health" and went back to work Friday after his harrowing collapse at a late-night dinner speech. The 67-year-old Mukasey, accompanied by his wife, Susan, told reporters and cameras at midday Friday that he felt "excellent" as he stepped into a van for a ride back to the Justice Department. Mukasey never transferred his authority to a deputy during the time when he was rushed to a hospital late Thursday and while there under observation.
