Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, battling a brain tumor, walked through a wall of applause into the Senate on Wednesday and cast a stunningly unexpected vote on long-stalled Medicare legislation.

Returning to the Senate floor for the first time since his May brain surgery, Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Ma) was greeted with a “lengthy standing ovation” by his colleagues, CNN reports.
