    He always looks so healthy, though. I'm kind of surprised.


    When Clinton started having heart problems, he looked really bad for a while.

    My dad's been an avid runner since the late 70's when he quit smoking...eats right...a little over weight but in pretty good shape for a guy who will be 71 this year.

    He had a heart attack last summer and had to have a stent put in.

    IMO it just shows that genetics trumps calisthenics every time.

    Former President George W. Bush left the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital on Wednesday after undergoing surgery to open up a blocked artery.

    A spokesman for the 43rd President told The Associated Press he is “doing great” after being discharged from the hospital.

    Doctors found the artery blockage Monday during a routine checkup and implanted a heart stent Tuesday to relieve it.

    The 67-year-old Bush is known for his superior fitness. Karen Hughes, a Bush aide, told USA Today that the surgery would not slow him down.

    "Are you kidding? He's already talking resuming a normal schedule the day after tomorrow," Hughes said on Tuesday.

    President Obama wished Bush well after hearing about the surgery on Tuesday.


    Of cuss he did - he has to have W to point his finger at even 5 years later.
