WASHINGTON - Sen. John Kerry spoke to reporters after visiting Sen. Ted Kennedy briefly at the Washington Hospital Center in the nation's capitol.

Kerry said the senior senator from Massachusetts is in "good shape" and had a "mild seizure," something he's undergone before and "goes with the territory" of having his form of cancer. He said Kennedy "joked a little bit about what happened" and is grateful for the telephone calls he's received.

Kerry said Kennedy is expected to stay the night at the hospital. He didn't think Barack Obama had spoken to Sen. Kennedy yet.
