Hillary Clinton is pulling for her ex-political rival after Senator Bernie Sanders underwent emergency heart surgery.

The former U.S. secretary of state appeared Wednesday on "The View" along with her daughter, Chelsea.

The Clintons are making the press rounds as they promote a book they co-authored, "The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience."

The moment the ladies sat down, they were asked about the big news of the day regarding Senator Sanders receiving two stents during an emergency heart procedure.

"Wish him and hope for the best," Hillary said, appearing to show genuine emotion for the health of Sanders.

Chelsea also wished him well, and reminded viewers, "If you have chest pains, please go to the doctor."

She stressed that men need to know the signs of heart trouble, because they generally wait too long to seek treatment during an emergency.

Hillary bested Bernie for the Democratic party's nomination, but she blamed him for the lasting effects some of his aggressive campaigning caused.

In her book, "What Happened," she wrote that the aftermath made it, "harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump’s ‘Crooked Hillary’ campaign.”

She also wrote that, "I am proud to be a Democrat and wish Bernie were, too."

Campaign Put On Hold

78-year-old Sanders was hospitalized Tuesday night while in Las Vegas.

A press release from senior campaign adviser, Jeff Weaver, read:

"During a campaign event yesterday evening, Sen. Sanders experienced some chest discomfort. Following medical evaluation and testing he was found to have a blockage in one artery and two stents were successfully inserted."

"Sen. Sanders is conversing and in good spirits. He will be resting up over the next few days. We are canceling his events and appearances until further notice, and we will continue to provide appropriate updates."
