President Bill Clinton was hospitalized Thursday in New York after experiencing discomfort in his chest. Clinton is in New York City's Columbia Presbyterian Hospital where he had a heart procedure performed. The 63 year old former President received two stents in one of his coronary arteries.
His wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was spotted leaving the hospital early this morning. Hillary Clinton traveled from Washington, D.C. to be with her husband earlier Thursday after the decision was made to perform the procedure.
President Clinton's doctors say he is doing fine and his prognosis is excellent and should be release today. President Clinton had quadruple bypass surgery at this same hospital six years ago.
