The story:
The democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton has said in an interview that she didn't disclose her pneumonia diagnosis originally as she didn't think it would be a big deal.

She's been facing criticism that she hadn't revealed her condition when diagnosed on Friday, but only after she almost collapsed in public two days later.

Jon Sopel - BBC News:
When the news broke that Hillary Clinton had been diagnosed with pneumonia it made headlines around the world.

But, in her interview last night, the democratic presidential candidate said she didn't think her illness was going to be that big a deal and she batted away suggestions that she'd been secretive. "People know more about me than almost anyone else in public life," she told CNN.

That may be true, but among many Americans there's a feeling that the Clintons are anything but transparent.

Key words and phrases:

hold/keep/play your cards close to your chest
not share key information; be secretive

come clean
tell the truth about something you were keeping secret

big deal
something important

not that big a deal
important, but not very important

short period when you are ill or unhappy; a short period of activity

bat away
(here) reject

This is very nice -- wish I'd known about it sooner. I have a lot of ESL college students who will really like this -- the main problem they have is getting up to conversation speed for lectures. Whoever thought of this is a real friend.

I am an English Learner. It's better for me to get know the words from the news, that's why, I went to the BBC Learning English's cite first. Now I know how to use these words, despite these words I ever known.
