In a development that is sure to bring the house down, US Senator Edward M. Kennedy is expected to attend the Democratic National Convention, most likely to deliver a speech tomorrow night.

Kennedy is battling brain cancer, and his doctors are said to be worried that his treatment has compromised his immune system and that attending the convention could put him at further risk. Still, the senator has recently told people that he has a speech written for the convention and that he badly wants to come, pending a final medical consultation.

Buzz has built among Massachusetts politicos that Kennedy would come, and today a source close to the family confirmed that he had made a decision to come.

``He is definitely planning to be here,'' said the Kennedy family confidant. ``The whole Kennedy family will be in a special section. It should be quite moment.'

3. I don't know. John King said an hour ago that he's not able. Sad.
Hope it's a ruse.

4. Why can't they broadcast his speech live to the convention?
A hologram would be great.

I don't think it's worth endangering his life for him to appear in such a crowded place after what he's been through.

5. I hope he makes it..
I think he, his doctors, and his family are the best judge of his health, his ability, and achieving what ever it is he wants to do.
