Senator Ted Kennedy was hospitalized this morning after having some kind of seizure, and then taken to another hospital because it was apparently pretty serious, but the 76-year-old famous liberal is now talking and joking, according to the Kennedy Clan. This is Edward Kennedy, the Keith Richards of politics, and the Kennedys. He can survive anything.
This AP picture, by the way, is from May 12, a few days ago. Kennedy is laughing over something at the Profiles In Courage awards dinner at JFK’s presidential library/museum in Boston. John F. Kennedy, the first of the Kennedy brothers to be assassinated, was killed nearly a half century ago. [Boston Globe]
