Bill Clinton admitted to hospital for heart bypass surgery

Bill Clinton was admitted to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York City today, after a blockage was found in his heart.

According to CBS and ABC, Clinton will be having quadruple heart bypass surgery.

He's undergoing tests, which have come behind chest pains that have plagued the former president in the past few days.

Hospital officials are not commenting, but, as you can imagine, the press have swarmed over Columbia Presbyterian thus far.

Most sources do not consider it to be a major issue presently, since his wife, Senator Hillary Clinton, is on a campaign trip in upstate New York, as opposed to being at his side.

UPDATE (1:15P ET): According to Clinton's office, he will be undergoing bypass surgery on Tuesday.

Today, he's undergoing part of a series of tests.

Hillary and Chelsea Clinton will be joining Clinton at the hospital shortly.
