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.

Story developing ...

UGGGGHHH    

Get well Mr President Bill Clinton. You did a great job running the country and left millions in surplus when you left office.

Now the country is going DOWN HILL thanks to BUSH AND OBAMA.

With all the stimulus money, to create jobs, now the JOBS are being outsourced out of the county. THATS WRONG, THATS WRONG , THATS WRONG

He brought the country to a standstill for 2 years while he lied and lied (under oath) to the American people after he was impeached. So, whoever said he's a good man? Best President ever? Pfffft! He and Hillary should be selling used cars back in Little Rock!

How come there is no live feed from the hospital. Come on Harvey get in the ball. This is a former President with a possible heart attack which is far more important than the live coverage you gave to Charlie Sheen going to court or Dr. Murray.
