BUFFALO, N.Y. - Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton collapsed Monday during a speech in Buffalo.

Colleen DiPirro, president of the Amherst Chamber of Commerce, told WBEN radio station that the 57-year-old Clinton told the audience she was feeling weak from a stomach ailment just before she collapsed at the Saturn Club, one of Buffalo's most prestigious private clubs.

There were no immediate details on whether she remained conscious.
Clinton's appearance at the Chamber of Commerce event came shortly before another speech scheduled at a nearby Catholic college, which was planned despite protests from anti-abortion groups and reluctance from the Catholic diocese.
She was planning to discuss health care, not her pro-choice stance on abortion, aides said. Several hundred people were waiting to hear that address. There were also hundreds of protesters waiting at the college.

A friend of mine has just informed me that his mother had symptoms very similar and it turned out to be a heart attack. Let's hope she's ok


I've read she was treated at the scene and plans to give her speech as planned.

Nothing surprises me these days, Angie. These people are sincere in their hatred.
