Former president Bill Clinton was released Friday morning from a New York hospital, where he stayed overnight after doctors inserted two stents into a clogged coronary artery after he complained of chest pains. The one-hour procedure went smoothly, according to his cardiologist. Clinton, 63, was released from New York Presbyterian Hospital's campus at Columbia University early Friday morning "in excellent health" and will soon return to his work on Haiti's relief and long-term recovery, his office said.

The Baltimore Sun Subbing for new grandmother Hillary Clinton on late notice, former President Bill Clinton became the star attraction Tuesday night at a fundraiser for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Anthony G. Brown at a posh estate in Potomac. The Brown campaign said the former president helped Brown draw about 450 guests and raise more than $1.2 million for his campaign against Republican Larry Hogan in the Nov. 4 election. Hillary Clinton, the presumed Democratic front-runner for the 2016 presidential nomination, had been the expected headliner at the big-ticket event at an estate in one of Maryland's wealthiest communities.

MY LOVE AFFAIR with Bill Clinton is over.I know all of you were waiting to hear from the president on this, but since he appears to have trouble saying what he means and meaning what he says, I have decided to come forward and state for the record that my relationship with Bill Clinton, begun in 1992, is over.I now believe that his cheating did not end when I elected him president -- I and the rest of the 8 percent plurality of women voters who put him over the top in 1992.I and the rest of the female electorate that chose to ignore his marital history because we believed he believed government should do more to help people.

PRESIDENT Clinton's Cuba policy is not in the interest of the American people. It is not in the interest of the Cuban people. It is in the interest of an obscure but powerful right-wing Cuban American group.When President Clinton was asked to explain to dismayed Cuban Americans why he has shut the door to Cuban immigrants, the President responded that he is supported by "Cuban Americans I know."But who are the Cuban Americans Mr. Clinton knows? Chief among them is Jorge Mas Canosa, the leader of the right-wing Cuban American National Foundation, based in Miami.

WASHINGTON -- The prospects for cooperation between President Clinton and Congress in his second term are clouded as a result of the Republican Party's continued control of the Senate and likely retention of the House.But his impressive re-election will likely be a moderating force on his Republican opposition in Congress and the probable outgrowth a continuation of the tenuous but relatively productive relationship that existed between them in the last year.Unlike in 1994, when the GOP takeover of Congress for the first time in 40 years produced a revolutionary fervor among House conservatives and a determination to bury the last vestiges of New Deal liberalism, Republicans' mood this time around is likely to be more cautious.

NEW YORK -- The nation's Boomer-in-Chief celebrated his 50th birthday last night at Radio City Music Hall with a bash big enough to herald an entire generation reaching middle age. The night-long party for Bill Clinton brought together 20,000 of his friends and supporters, featured six decades of American music and raised $10 million for the Democratic Party.Clinton needed help from his 16-year-old daughter, Chelsea, to blow out the candles on his huge cake. Earlier in the evening, he joked that the three surviving Beatles, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, are all older than 50."

Sharon Long will tell you straightaway: She's just a simple woman who grew up in Southeast Baltimore, never wanting much more than a comfortable rowhouse, an unassuming life and a decent job. "For most of my life," says Long, who will be 44 Sunday, "that's exactly what I had." Until she got fired from her job after asking for a raise. Until the lawsuit, the illness, the accident that left her husband unable to support her family and the suicide of the couple's only child. Until she began being held up as a symbol by President Clinton, who recently called Sharon Long "heroic," her life an example for female workers across America.

Each president brings his own unique preconceptions to the job. Post-depression, FDR believed the American people deserved a "New Deal. " John Kennedy felt Americans would willingly "pay any price" to spread freedom and democracy throughout the world. Ronald Reagan thought a strong national defense would bring the "evil empire" to its knees. A post-9/11 George W. Bush saw radical Islam as the single greatest threat to western-style democracy. As a candidate and as president, Barack Obama, too, has been quite clear about the fundamentals of his foreign policy - particularly America's approach to the world's dictators and assorted miscreants.

I'm not saying that Jean Marbella deliberately tried to mislead readers in her recent column ("In all these sex scandals, see a double standard," Nov. 18) in which she implied that Bill Clinton had been impeached because he had had a sexual affair with a female intern in The White House. Nor am I saying that she tried to excuse his outrageous behavior by asserting, "...there's no shame in being a stud. " Truth be told, however, President Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives for committing perjury before a grand jury, and for obstructing justice.

Former President Bill Clinton will headline a fundraiser this month for John Delaney, the Democratic candidate running for Congress in Maryland's competitive 6th District. For Delaney, the visit couldn't be better timed. Clinton is riding a renewed wave of popularity among Democrats after his performance at his party's convention in Charlotte. The event will take place in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 16, The Sun has learned. Clinton endorsed Delaney in the primary in early March -- one of a series of announcements at that time that helped the Potomac businessman build momentum and ultimately shift from the underdog to the front-runner in the race against state Sen. Rob Garagiola.

The Sun and other national media have come under fire from Ron Paul supporters for ignoring their candidate. There's a reason for that: He himself said that he would be a different kind of president, one that got out of the way. It's hard for the media to cover his absence of an agenda. While Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich would take an active role in trying to improve the country, Congressman Paul's plan is simply to remove the obstacles to prosperity put up by government. Other than that, his platform leaves nothing for the media to report on. It's not a matter of not getting enough exposure by the media, because everybody understands where he would take the country.

Bill Clinton has some advice for Democrats heading into the 2012 elections, and you don't have to read very far into his new book to realize that what he has to say should be of particular interest to the current occupant of the White House. The former president thinks President Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats have the right policies but have done a poor job of getting their message out. Mr. Clinton is worried that if that doesn't change, the Democrats will face another Republican shellacking like the one they endured in 2010.

WASHINGTON -- Nearly a quarter-century ago, the politicians cut a deal with the voters: In exchange for public financing of presidential elections, candidates would no longer seek big-money contributions.That agreement -- designed to avoid another Watergate scandal -- seems to have been all but ignored by the time of the 1996 election.Led by President Clinton and Vice President Al Gore, the Democrats raised a record $123 million in "soft" money -- donations, frequently in amounts of $50,000, $100,000 or more, and not limited by federal law. (Republicans did even better: $138.

Every president leaves a legacy -- an intended or unintended bequest that helps or hinders his successors. Part of Bill Clinton's legacy could be a significantly diminished presidency. Whether or not he faces impeachment, Clinton's legal woes already seem to have made the institution of the presidency smaller and more vulnerable to adversaries. Sun national staff writer Lyle Denniston examines this prospect.What would it mean, in fact, if the presidency is "diminished?"Any whiff of scandal or wrongdoing could turn a future president's adversaries loose on aggressive investigations.

Letter writer John Holter criticizes President Bush for not attending Ground Zero with the current president ("Bush should have gone to Ground Zero," May 8). I wonder if Mr. Holter is aware that former President Clinton also declined an initiation to visit Ground Zero with President Obama? Does Mr. Holter feel that former President Clinton also turned his back on his supporters, the dignity of the office of president and the victory we are now celebrating? George Bush has refrained from criticizing Mr. Obama since the new president took office, despite the fact that Mr. Obama has criticized President Bush relentlessly.

Former President Bill Clinton is scheduled to be in Baltimore this afternoon, headlining a public rally for Gov.
