"Following a visit to his cardiologist, he underwent a procedure to place two stents in one of his coronary arteries. President Clinton is in good spirits, and will continue to focus on the work of his Foundation and Haiti's relief and long-term recovery efforts," continued Band.

Clinton's wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was seen departing the Oval Office in the White House Thursday afternoon; she "did not seem 'too concerned'or 'in a rush,'" sources told ABC.
