Bill Clinton

Hospitalized for Chest Pain

2/11/2010 7:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0211_bill_clinton_bn_tmz_01-1President Bill Clinton was admitted to a hospital in NY today after experiencing chest pain.

A rep for 63-year-old Clinton just released the following statement:

"Today President Bill Clinton was admitted to the Columbia Campus of NY Presbyterian hospital after feeling discomfort in his chest.

Following a visit to his cardiologist, he underwent a procedure to place 2 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."

The statement continues, "In 2004, President Clinton underwent a successful quadruple bypass operation to free four blocked arteries."

FYI -- a "stent" is a device that opens up a blocked artery.

UPDATE:
Hilary Clinton has announced that she's on her way from Washington to be with Bill.

Don't care what happens to him or Hillary. He convinced her to vote to invade Iraq. Don't know how these people can sleep at night.
