NEW YORK (Reuters) - Former President Bill Clinton has checked into a New York hospital and will undergo heart bypass surgery, U.S. networks reported on Friday.

ABC and CBS television reported that Clinton, 58, had checked into New York Presbyterian Hospital for quadruple heart bypass surgery.

A Democratic Party official told Reuters that Clinton had checked into the hospital with "chest pains." The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, could not confirm that Clinton would undergo bypass surgery.

CNN quoted a source close to the former president as saying the surgery could take place as early as Saturday.

Clinton, the 42nd U.S. president, promised at the Democratic convention in July to be a "foot soldier" in John Kerry's race against Republican President Bush.


Even though I have no love for Clinton I do hope he is okay.

My prayers are with the former president.

Angels offer ‘unconditional love’ – they set no rules, no standards to be fulfilled. Angels are here for us this instant, loving and guiding, giving us the support we need to move onwards and upwards towards spiritual enlightenment.

Post-op Clinton 'awake and alert'

Bill Clinton is awake, alert and talking to his family after his heart bypass operation, the former US president's office has said.
Doctors have described his recovery so far as satisfactory, and hospital sources say he is now taking liquids.

Mr Clinton is thought to need two to three months to return to full health.

Correspondents say he will now be less likely to campaign for Democrat candidate John Kerry in November's presidential elections.

On Tuesday doctors revealed that Mr Clinton, 58, had been in imminent danger of a major heart attack before the operation.

He was admitted to hospital last Friday suffering chest pains and shortness of breath and underwent surgery on Monday.

He is now said to be "resting comfortably" and is expected to remain at the hospital for a few more days.

Mr Clinton served two terms as president, during which he became known for his love of fast food and jogging.

But during his presidency, Mr Clinton showed no signs of heart problems during rigorous health examinations that were made public.
