ABC News reports:
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."

Update: Fox News is reporting the former president had two stents placed in one of his coronary arteries.  Aides say he is "in good spirits" and resting comfortably.  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has left to be with her husband in NY, although no word on whether she will cancel or delay her Middle East trip scheduled for the weekend.
