Bill Clinton to Headline L.A. Fundraisers After Hillary Cancels West Coast Trip

Former President Bill Clinton will headline Los Angeles fundraisers on Tuesday after his wife Hillary Clinton cancelled a West Coast fundraising swing to recover from pneumonia, fundraising sources said.

Clinton was scheduled to attend fundraisers in Los Angeles on Tuesday, including events at the home of Seth MacFarlane, and another at the home of Barry Diller and Diane Von Furstenberg. Donors are being told that Bill Clinton will be there instead.

Hillary Clinton was advised by her doctor “to rest and modify her schedule.” On Sunday, she left a 9/11 commemoration ceremony early because of overheating, her campaign said. A video showed her wobbly and having to be helped into a van, but she later appeared outside of daughter Chelsea’s apartment and said she was feeling fine.

On Sunday, the campaign released a statement from Dr. Lisa Bardack, who said that Clinton “has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during followup evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics and advised to modify her schedule. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely.”

Hillary Clinton will appear via teleconference at an event in San Francisco on Monday night that is to feature singers k.d. lang and Lizz Wright, according to CNN.

Clinton returned to her home in Chappaqua, N.Y., on Sunday afternoon.

Update: Bill Clinton was interviewed by Charlie Rose, and told Rose: “She’s doing fine. She was even better last night before she went to sleep. She had a good night’s sleep. She just got dehydrated yesterday.”

Rose asked him whether it was “more serious than dehydration.”

“Well, if it is then it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors. Rarely, on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing’s happened to her when she got severely dehydrated, and she’s worked like a demon, as you know, as Secretary of State, as a senator, and in the year since.”

The interview will air on Rose’s PBS show on Monday night and excerpts will air on “CBS This Morning” on Tuesday.
