Former President Bill Clinton Rushed to N.Y. Hospital
Clinton Had Quadruple Heart Bypass Surgery in 2004
By EMILY FRIEDMAN

Feb. 11, 2010 "

Former President Bill Clinton was rushed to a Manhattan hospital late this afternoon, sources tell ABC News.

Clinton, 63, was transported to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan for a condition related to his heart.

ABC News' chief political correspondent George Stephanopoulos reported that sources said he was taken to the hospital "likely for a stent procedure."

Sources on Capital Hill tell ABC News that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was seen leaving the Oval Office a short time ago and did not seem "too concerned" or "in a rush."

Clinton underwent quadruple bypass surgery at the same hospital where he is now a patient four and a half years ago.

@Butrflynet,
Here's hoping they're not just playing the story down. Hope he's ok.

Hope it’s not too serious, and that he has a speedy recovery.

@littlek,

Quote:
Douglas Band, counselor to Mr. Clinton, issued this statement: “Today President Bill Clinton was admitted to the Columbia Campus of New York Presbyterian Hospital after feeling discomfort in his chest. Following a visit to his cardiologist, he underwent a procedure to place two stents in one of his coronary arteries. President Clinton is in good spirits, and will continue to focus on the work of his Foundation and Haiti’s relief and long-term recovery efforts. In 2004, President Clinton underwent a successful quadruple bypass operation to free four blocked arteries.”

@Butrflynet,
I hope he's OK, too.

If he just left the nipple clamps on for too long, though, I don't want to hear about it.

Hopefully, Chelsea will be able to have her dad walk her down the aisle at her wedding this June.
