Ted Kennedy Collapsed At Obama Inaugural Luncheon

Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) has collapsed after suffering a seizure at a luncheon held for President Barack Obama at the Capitol, CNN and ABC News report. Paramedics arrived on the scene, and Kennedy was taken from the luncheon on a stretcher. ABC reports that the seizures lasted several minutes and continued as Kennedy taken from the banquet hall.
Kennedy was at a table with fellow Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry and others, George Stephanopoulos reports. President Barack Obama went out of the room with him, but he returned and spoke a few words about Kennedy.

"First of all, I know that while I was out of the room, concern was expressed about Teddy," Obama said. "He was there when the Voting Rights Act passed. And, along with John Lewis, was a warrior for justice. And so I would be lying to you if I did not say that right now a part of me is with him. And I think that's true for all of us. This is a joyous time, but it's also a sobering time. And my prayers are with him and his family and [his wife] Vicki."

Sen. Orrin Hatch (D-UT), a longtime friend of Kennedy, spoke to ABC News about the incident. "He did have what appeared to be a seizure and I went down along with Senators Dodd and Kerry and walked right along side until he got to the ambulance," Hatch said. "He was starting to do okay by the time he got wheeled into the ambulance. ... He was [conscious], he was speaking."
My guess, and it can be only an educated guess [but I once studied psychology] is that it was likely a combination of physical damage to his brain from his tumor, but set-off by his exteme mental agitation being reminded of what was done to JFK, RFK and himself by the Secret Govt. Though he doesn't talk about it, he knows it as he knows his own name.
