rushed to the hospital. They're
thankful the Massachusetts Senator is
now


resting comfortably in a Boston
Hospital.



(SOT: Senator Joe Biden/Delaware - D)


"I'm optimistic, but that's just based
on my native optimism."



The 76-year-old Senior statesman
suffered two seizures Saturday...the
first


at the Kennedy compound on Cape Cod
...the second as he was airlifted to


Boston On the Sunday talk shows...
there was an outpouring of support from


his friends and colleagues.



Some had the inside scoop as to how
he's been spending his time.



(already fonted - do not super)


(SOT: Bob Shrum/Democratic Strategist)


"He was sitting up in bed eating
take-out food from Legal Sea Food,


wishing he


could go sailing, and watching the
Boston Red Sox."



(Stand-up Bridge: Drew Levinson/CBS
News/Boston, MA)


"This is not the senator's first stay
here at Mass. General Hospital. Back in


October he had surgery to remove a
blockage in his left carotid artery. "



New York Univesity's Doctor Mark
Adelman says THAT surgery is probably
not


connected to Saturday's seizures. He
says during the past couple of days,


Kennedy's likely undergone a brain
scan, an MRI, an ultrasound and an echo


cardiogram -- all checking
circulation from the heart to the brain
as well


as overall brain function.



(SOT: Dr. Mark Adelman/NYU Medical


Center)


"It is quite possible that there is
something more serious going on as a


source of the seizure but there is a
50 50 chance that we are not going to


find out anything else wrong with the
senator outside of the seizure itself."



In that case, Adelman says Kennedy
could leave the hospital within a
matter of


days as long as he takes medication
to keep future seizures at bay. Drew

and second place.


Tanco would tap in for a routine

On the Boy's Side of things there
would be no comeback from those
