Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, scion of one of America’s most enduring political dynasties, was rushed to the hospital Saturday after suffering what his staff called a 'seizure.'Make no mistake, I can't stand the guy's politics. But my thoughts are with his family. Get well soon, sir.
The 76-year-old senator was airlifted to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston Saturday morning after falling ill at his home on Cape Cod. By evening, his spokeswoman, Melissa Wagoner, confirmed a report that the senator was 'conscious, talking, joking with family.'
And in Reno, Nev., Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), told reporters at the State Democratic Convention that, after talking to Kennedy's wife, Victoria, he “will be fine.”
Earlier, when he was stricken on Cape Cod and 'after discussion with his doctors in Boston,” Wagoner said, “Senator Kennedy was sent to Massachusetts General Hospital for further examination."
