BUFFALO, N.Y. - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton fainted Monday after complaining of a stomach virus before a scheduled speech on Social Security.
She received medical attention at the scene and then went on to give another speech at a Catholic college Monday afternoon. "It wasn't as dramatic as it sounds," Clinton said after the 30-minute speech.
Clinton aides said doctors believed she had a stomach virus.
They said she felt weak at the private club where she was to speak, needed to sit down, and then fainted briefly.
Later Monday, Clinton, 57, delivered a speech about health care at Canisius College. She was introduced by former U.S. Rep. John LaFalce, who told the crowd that Clinton went against doctor's advice because she was committed to talking about health care.
