Throwback Thursday: Week 3 Former President Bill Clinton, on the mend after a heart scare landed him in the hospital last week for a stent operation, told reporters yesterday that watching his recent appearance on "Nightline," pictured  in the screengrab above, made him realize something was seriously wrong with his health. "I saw an interview I did with 'Nightline,' in Haiti, which terrified me," Clinton said, according to this New York Post story today. "I looked like I was 185 years old. My color was bad." The Friday before his hospitalization, February 5, Cynthia McFadden was in Haiti with Clinton, to interview the UN special envoy and tour the quake devastation.   Click here for our note last Thursday about the health scare.
