More details now...
She collapsed during an appearance where she was to deliver a speech on Social Security.
Colleen DiPirro, president of the Amherst Chamber of Commerce, told WBEN-AM radio that Clinton told the crowd she was feeling weak and had had a stomach virus. Clinton started to speak then collapsed, DiPirro told the radio station.
Clinton was scheduled to speak Monday at a Catholic college despite protests from anti-abortion groups and reluctance from the Catholic diocese. She was expected to discuss health care, not her pro-choice stance on abortion, the cause of the protesters' anger.
Several hundred people were waiting to hear that address. There were also hundreds of protesters waiting at the college.

It happened before she gave a speech at my College.
She fainted at a well to do private club. Apparently she was battling an illness earlier, and she told the local Dem. Party chairman that she was feeling light headed and ill before she collapsed. She was fine after this however and came to Canisius, my college and presented her speech. It was quite the hype everywhere it appeared. Buffalo and politics, always a bad mix.
