(Newser) – Sen. Edward Kennedy was rushed to a hospital yesterday with a "mild seizure," his office said. But he returned to his Hyannis Port compound to watch the presidential debate after about 3 hours of treatment. A change in medication prompted the seizure, doctors said. The senator was diagnosed with a lethal form of brain tumor after suffering a seizure 4 months ago, the Cape Cod Times reports.
