Jimmy Carter, the effervescent former U.S. President who may or may not have said that he’s the best ex-president ever, was hospitalized in Cleveland, Tuesday.
According to CNN, Carter was hospitalized for an upset stomach. Now, this may not be a big deal for you or me, but Carter is 85 years old. A hangnail could be a potential big issue.
Jackie Mayo, the public information officer for Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, said the 39th president was transferred to the hospital at approximately 11:30 a.m. ET after paramedics met Carter’s plane upon its arrival. Via CNN
Early reports say Carter is resting fine and probably just had some gas; he will spend the night under observation.
Carter is in Ohio to autograph copies of his new book, White House Diary, at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in the suburb of Lyndhurst.
