Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (aka Ted Kennedy) was released from the hospital this morning after having a seizure during an inaugural luncheon yesterday. According to former Vice President Walter Mondale, who was at the event, Kennedy was telling "old war stories," but "obviously under stress" at lunch.
The Massachusetts senator went back to work in November, months after suffering a seizure that led to the diagnosis of his malignant brain tumor. His office confirmed he left Washington Hospital Center this morning after resting overnight for observation. A spokeswoman said Kennedy, 76, is in "good spirits" and doctors wanted him to get some rest.
