Bill Clinton on Losing Weight, Becoming a "Medical Experiment" -- Plus, a Dancing Dog! (VIDEO)

Bill Clinton on Losing Weight, Becoming a 'Medical Experiment' -- Plus, a Dancing Dog!On 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), former President Bill Clinton showed up to discuss his recent weight loss, and he also compared heart surgery war stories with host David Letterman. Several years ago, Bill had a quadruple heart bypass, but Dave has done him one better with his own quintuple bypass surgery.

Since this operation in 2004, Clinton has become much healthier, and has tamed his love for fast food, meaning that clips like this one are no longer strictly accurate. (Although we're still big fans of the late, great Phil Hartman's Clinton impersonation.) Bill told Letterman that he now weighs the same amount that he did in high school. "You look fantastic," Dave said.

The 64-year-old ex-President promised his daughter Chelsea that he would lose fifteen pounds for her wedding -- in fact, he lost more than that, dropping twenty pounds in total. (Chelsea herself shed more than twenty-five pounds before getting married.) Bill also revealed an additional factor in his recent weight-loss. He's had another operation within the past year, and following that, he began paying attention to his lifestyle -- "I read all those books I should have read after the [first] surgery [six years ago], I changed my diet accordingly; the weight-loss was sort of a side benefit."

After this new operation, Clinton took part in a type of treatment where he, in his own words, became "a medical experiment." He cut out all cholesterol and ate a strictly plant-based diet. According to Bill, only a few hundred people have attempted this, but 82 percent of them have seen positive results. It was this plan that helped him drop all those pounds before Chelsea's wedding, so good job on being a guinea pig, Mr. President!

Speaking of animals -- or at least guinea pigs -- Bill Clinton had an interesting animal encounter on Dave's show tonight. He met one of Letterman's other guests -- a merengue-dancing dog named "Carrie." This is the first ever meeting between a President and a dancing dog, so it's kind of an historic occasion. It also gives us an excuse to post this video of the dog, which is pretty much why we brought the whole thing up.

Elf, You had it right. Except both President Bush's have worked with Clinton on Haitian relief.

I don't think anyone is necessarily "jealous" of Clinton, I think they don't like what he has stood for. Clinton gets a lot of credit for prosperity that was not of his making, remember he followed 12 years of Reagan & Bush Sr. Low taxes, enormous job growth & we got rid of our debt during those years, no one else's. That's what creates surplus.

G.W.Bush, on the other hand made his mistakes and while I believe from everything I've been reading about him, he truly believed he was making the right decisions, he just didn't. He was seriously misguided & surrounded himself with the wrong people. I don't particularly care for either man. I'm a libertarian & think the 2 party system is antiquated & needs to go. The point is this...there will always be people that love Clinton & always be people that love Bush & people on opposite sides who don't understand the other side's thought process...isn't wonderful that we live in America & we can have these thoughts FREELY? At least, for now.

I hate to say this but ex President Clinton seemed to way off his game last night. It almost seemed as was high on pain killers or something. Never saw him stumble threw questions like he did on Letterman. Very strange indeed.

Bubba Bill is going to be another Peanuts Carter, he just won't go away. Give credit where it's due though, Slick Willy and Schrillary did have all those people murdered at Waco and got away with it. Only Obongo has got the media to kiss his ass more than the Clintons.

OMG, when will this train wreck and his wife go away. I suppose not until after November. And Hollywood studios love to promote their "pet politicians". Hillary goes on TV in Ecquador and tells them the Obama administration is going to sue AZ for their stand on immigration BEFORE ANYTHING HAD BEEN SAID TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. Both Clinton's are liars and will do whatever it takes to promote themselves, including putting 22 states in the United States into a report on human rights violations to the U.N. as being challenges because they have voiced opposition to the administration doing NOTHING about our borders and
show support for the one state that took action. They included in the report the steps they will take to control these states.
