Sen. Johnson Recovering

CNN is reporting that South Dakota Senator Tim Johnson is recovering after his brain hemorrhage earlier this week. He remains in critical condition due to postoperative swelling of the brain, but that is typical in cases such as his. The political speculation about his seat, thankfully, appears to be moot. Unless Johnson has a dramatic turn for the worse, even with months of physical therapy, it seems unlikely that he would resign his seat or be so incapacitated that he cannot serve.
