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.

One thing I like about President Clinton is that he has always been worried about the iraqi kids in haiti that don't have clean water.

Oh My God, The intelligence of the general American mentally leaves me to shake my head in wonder. Where are the manners and general goodwill toward your exPresident. I am very concerned that if this type of filth that seems to come out of some of these peoples brains is why the American people are so hated in the world. It scares me to hear such hatred as it all comes back to you. No wonder everyone says that Yankee's are all yap and no action. Get with it and start using your brains

He should be addressed as President Clinton, and he is not one of these no class Hollywood losers? The lack of respect that he showed to his wife and to the office he held as President with that Lewinsky crap is every bit as low class as these Hollywood losers. I still like him but lost alot of respect after the Monica scandal.

TO people comparing this to the Rush limbaugh incident...
One is an elected official(who is more loved then hated), the other is a man on the radio.

@ JackieMichele

We refer to all presidents, past and current as Mr. President or President. It's a sign of respect, even if you didn't like them. As well as a title that was given to them. Like in college, you really should call the person a Professor, or Dr. It's what they worked to get.

You know Karma is a b!tch and some of you are going to learn when it bites you in the backside. Just like when people wished ill will on Limbaugh those doing it to President Clinton will regret it in the long run.

I wish President Clinton a full and speedy recovery.

To all these people who are getting their panties in a bunch because he is not being called President GET A LIFE! he is not royalty and the American people are not his subjects. We are breaking no laws calling him by his name Bill Clinton.
