This just in...: Jimmy Carter cancels D.C. appearances due to hospital stay

  • Two book-tour events in Washington for Jimmy Carter were canceled Wednesday because of a stomach ailment that kept the 39th president in a Cleveland hospital for a second day. Carter, laid low by what doctors say was probably a virus that's now clearing up, had been set to sign his new "White House Diary" at Politics and Prose and speak at a sold-out Lisner Auditorium. No word on whether he'll attend a Habitat for Humanity gala here Monday honoring him and wife Rosalynn; but his grandson said Carter will likely resume his activities this week.
