Sen. Kennedy’s Feeling Better

The Lion of the Senate might be coming back with a roar. Senator Harry Reid told reporters today that Sen. Edward Kennedy’s brain cancer is in remission, and several senators confirmed he is planning to return to the Senate after Memorial Day to push through health care reform, the Hill reports. Reid’s spokesman distanced himself from his comment afterwards, saying he will “leave the diagnosing to doctors." Reid said he spoke with Kennedy’s wife who said the lawmaker is “doing fine,” but is going through another round of chemotherapy treatment. Since he was diagnosed with brain cancer last May, Kennedy has stayed out of the public eye. He did attend Obama’s inauguration in January, where he had a seizure brought on by fatigue and was rushed to the hospital. Kennedy is expected to spearhead Obama’s health care reform if he returns.
