Teddy Kennedy Hospitalized
Sen. Edward Kennedy, a leading Democrat and patriarch of a prominent American political dynasty, has hospitalized in Boston, a spokesman for a hospital in Cape Cod said.
Kennedy, 76, was rushed from the Kennedy compound at Hyannisport, Massachusetts, to Cape Cod Hospital at 9 a.m. (1300 GMT), a hospital spokesman told Reuters.

Kennedy had surgery last October to repair a nearly complete blockage in a major neck artery.
