Former Arkansas governor and failed congressional candidate William Jefferson "Bill" Clinton was hospitalized in New York City — where he was presumably visiting for vacation — just a little while ago…
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.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Governor's wife and children, as well as the good people of Arkansas, in this difficult time.
Update: I have just become aware that the former governor — an amateur jazz saxophonist– has "had two stents inserted Thursday to prop open a clogged heart artery," is in good spirits and is expected to be able to go back to playing his reed instrument of choice in no time.
