(CNN) - Sen. Robert Byrd was hospitalized Monday night, a spokesman said.
The 90-year-old Democrat from West Virginia appeared lethargic when he arrived at his Senate office Monday afternoon in preparation for a vote on global warming, the spokesman said.
After the vote, he returned home, where his caregiver noticed the same symptoms, took his temperature and discovered he had a fever, the spokesman said.
I guess that's what happens when you mess with Cheney
What an inspiration! Be well, Senator Byrd.
Get well soon, Senator Byrd, my favorite senator! Why are all my favorite senators in the hospital? Get well soon to you too Senator Kennedy. Great true political giants are a fading breed, it seems.

Isnt it odd how so many of Obama's endorsers are suddenly stricken with illnesses? Could it be the mysterious Clinton Curse back in action? They seem to be dropping like flies, the way people have who've opposed the Clinton's over the years.
All I can see is Sen Byrd's tearful tribute to Sen. Ted Kennedy. And then that jerk Cheney goes and insults his citizens in WV.
I pray all is well with the Senator and he makes a speedy recovery!
Get well and come back to the senate senator.
WHY ARE YOU EVEN IN THE POLITICAL WORLD AT YOU AGE.
YOU HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB BUT IT IS NOW TIME TO GIVE IT UP AND SIT BACK AND ENJOY LIFE. STEP OWN AND WATCH THE PROCESS LIKE EVERY ONE ELSE DOES. YOU DID YOUR TIME , SO NOW ENJOY THE RETIREMENT AND FIND OUT THE REST OF THE AMERICANS LIVE ON RETIREMENT.
Hope he feels better soon.
It's about time someone younger takes his place. Obama is right age matters, Byrd is to old to be Senator.
I hope Byrd has another good 10-20 years of service left in him. His best work is yet to come.
The "young", "educated" people of this generation are way too ignorant to run this country. They are the "pep rally" generation. Give them a trendy cause and they will buy all the commemorative t-shirts and caps produced for it. Give them a politician who can speek for hours without actually saying anything and they will project any thing they want to believe on his "blank screen". If the presentation is flashy enough, they will cheer "go team go" while being led of the side of a cliff.
I truely hope evey Hillary supporter doesn't just give in this easy. He stole the election from her because she is a woman. You must write her in when you vote for president!!!!!
Get well soon, Sir. Our prayers are with you.
Good Health to you and best wishes on a speedy recovery, Senator Byrd.
Here's to a speedy recovery Senator Byrd. I hope all is well.
To all you Byrd haters, kiss off.

It's time for him to retire.
You are in our prayers, sir. Get well soon.
