It looks like President Clinton is going to be all right. Admitted to a New York hospital with chest pains, two stents were inserted into one of his coronary arteries and Clinton was released this morning.
Clinton underwent quadruple bypass surgery in 2004. Photos taken of bypass grafts he received four years ago revealed that one of the grafts was blocked.
The question is: how does a guy’s bypass graft get completely blocked in that short time? Clinton’s cardiologist, Dr. Allen Schwartz, says lifestyle is not the answer:
"This was not a result of his lifestyle or diet, which have been excellent," he said, adding that Clinton is "in excellent condition, as evidenced both by what he does and objective testing."
Really, Dr. Schwartz? Then how do you explain this?
