Former President Bill Clinton is recovering at his suburban New York home today after leaving a Manhattan hospital where he underwent a heart procedure. Three black SUVs with tinted windows pulled through the high gates of his Chappaqua house around 7:45am. Clinton adviser Douglas Band said in a statement that Clinton left New York Presbyterian Hospital "in excellent health."
"He looks forward in the days ahead to getting back to the work of his Foundation, and to Haiti relief and recovery efforts," it said. Friend Terry McAuliffe was more candid: "If I know President Clinton, he'll be on the phone calling people asking for more help for Haiti and where he can get pickup trucks so they can deliver food or generators. If I know Bill Clinton, he'll be raring to go in about 35 minutes." (Read more Bill Clinton heart procedure stories.)
