Former President Bill Clinton hospitalized; Second time around?

Former Prez Bill Clinton was hospitalized in New York today. He had been complaining of severe chest pains for two days now. He was admitted to Columbia Campus of New York Presbyterian Hospital today (NBCChicago)

Hillary Clinton released the news that she is leaving Washington right away to be with him.

TMZ reports that he had to have a stent procedure which consists of two stents placed in his coronary arteries which is usually required to unclog a blocked artery.

Bill Clinton is in good spirits about his health problems. His rep says, "He will continue to focus on the work of his Foundation and Haiti's relief and long-term recovery efforts."

"In 2004, President Clinton underwent a successful quadruple bypass operation to free four blocked arteries," so this is the second time around for good ole Bill.
