Right in the middle of the Medicare cloture vote.
They broke into a standing ovation for him.
I can't wait to hear the clerk say "Mr. Kennedy ... AYE".
(Sorry about doing this as a BREAKING, but it really, truly is. The enthusiastic response from everyone in the Senate chamber was truly amazing.)
UPDATE UPDATE -- video of the ovation (I wish they'd also captured the interrupted roll call leading into it):
UPDATE: Thanks for putting this micro-diary on the Rec list.
And I'm absolutely astonished that (so far) there are no other Ted-on-the-floor diaries. Usually, the smallest event produces two dozen nearly-identical diaries.
