This is just breaking on Drudge. From ABC News:
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.
I am not a fan of Bill Clinton’s politics, I am grateful that it doesn’t appear to be serious. I do wonder if Hillary will use this as an excuse to jump the listing ship of the U.S.S. Hope and Change?
UPDATE: Bill Clinton gets two stents
The former president’s counselor Douglas Band released a statement saying that Clinton is in “good spirits.”
“Today President Bill Clinton was admitted to the Columbia Campus of New York Presbyterian Hospital after feeling discomfort in his chest,” said Band. “Following a visit to his cardiologist, he underwent a procedure to place two stents in one of his coronary arteries.”
A stent is a wire mesh tube used to prop open an artery.
