Bill Clinton Is in the Hospital


Former president Bill Clinton was hospitalized at Columbia Presbyterian in Manhattan earlier today after experiencing chest pains, and later had two stents placed in a coronary artery. Clinton, who also had emergency quadruple-heart-bypass surgery in 2004, “is in good spirits,” according to an aide. Also, ABC News reports, somewhat oddly, that “Hillary Clinton was seen leaving the Oval Office a short time ago and did not seem ‘too concerned’ or ‘in a rush.’ ” [44/WP, ABC News]
