BOSTON (AP) - Sen. Edward M. Kennedy was airlifted to a hospital Saturday after suffering a seizure at his home, and did not appear to have had a stroke as initially suspected, his spokeswoman said.
The 76-year-old Democrat, the lone surviving son in a famed political family, was undergoing tests at Massachusetts General Hospital to determine the cause of the seizure, spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said.

No doubt that many here are not fans of his politics, but we should wish the best for him nonetheless.

Way, way south.
I am by no means a fan of him, but I do wish him the best and that I pray he recovers fully.

Heard he has a brain tumor. That's tough at any age, but at his age...

Regardless of any personal feelings, it is always awful to hear when someone's body has decided to betray them.

Hopefully this has been caught early enough, and can be treated.

My brother had a brain tumor (at age 54), died approximately 5 months after diagnosis. It's an ugly death, and I hope that Sen Kennedy's tumor is of a different type than my brothers. His family is in my prayers.

I believe in karma and after chappaquidick(sp) this could be his payback.

If that is your take, he has already had his payback by the sorrows within his family since the events at Chappaquiddick

I just don't know if they count. He has tried, not well, to capitalize on his brothers deaths. I just don't like the guy and in the end I beliebe you get what you deserve. I know, I have already been told I am unfeeling, no biggie.

yes, 40+ years later and the fact that he is what, 76 years old definitely point to a karmic event. (eye rolling emoticon)

I would not wish cancer on anyone good or bad. What Ted did or didn't do really does not matter at this point. What matters is that he gets the support of his family, some fine medical care, and works to fight this.

The idea of karma is cruel and keeps the world down rather than lifts it up.

Good things also happen to bad people, and bad things happen to good people. It's OK to dislike his political views. It's another, IMO, to revel in his illness.

so if he survives the cancer, but later dies of something else, and he will die (since most of us do), you will say a bad thing happened to a bad person?

I believe in Karma, but come on Kori. I think this is a stretch.
