Now why would you go ahead and tell everyone about that. :dead3:

Not too much to worry about I suppose. What he has, he'll likely either die before 2006 or plod along slowly for the next several years.

UK obit virtually assured though, since his death would have a significant impact on the makeup of the Senate...

Ah, here's one on the list with an official site. Even has a contact button so we can e-mail him and ask how he's doing. Most recent statement - Dec 28 - says he's being weaned off the medication.

I am dissapointed that Tim Johnson has been added to the 2007 list. He may be an American senator, but the only thing he is really famous for, is his current ill-being and its possible consequences. It is this very ill-being that has thrust him into the headlines, if it were not for this I doubt the people who have constructed the 2007 list would have ever heard of him.

Theres a point.
Is Tim Johnson fair game under the unofficial, unwritten DL rules?
He is only famous because his illness compromises the Democrat majority in the Senate.

I'm not complaining like. Just hope he doesn't do what number 2 did to us last year.

The death of any US senator, or representative, whilst in office, would certainly receive extensive UK media coverage, whether that person had been terminally ill on January 1st or if they were run down totally out of the blue by a steamroller.

I'm not sure what people are looking for here. We could put Paris Hilton, Jade Goody and Britney Spears on the list, and hit everyone's criteria for youthfulness, femaleness, and suitability for selection because they're not unwell. And we'd have picked the three most beautiful women in the whole world. But then we'd get about four hits on the year, and everyone would bitch and moan about how unsuccessful the DL was and that there was nothing to talk about.

From: http://www.keloland.....cfm?Id=0,53551

A Sioux Falls neurologist says US Senator Tim Johnson may be in for a long recovery period from brain surgery.

Doctor William Rossing bases that belief on the length of time that the senator has been sedated. Prolonged sedation was used to minimize swelling after emergency surgery on Johnson for bleeding in the brain.

Rossing says recovery for someone who's been sedated as long as Johnson is likely to be "significant and lengthy." That could mean the 60-year-old politician will be in recovery for months instead of weeks.

Rossing says it usually takes just a few days to wean a patient from sedation. Johnson has been sedated since December 13th and is being gradually weaned.

A New York University Medical Center official also says it's unusual for a patient to be sedated for more than a few days after brain surgery.

I'm surprised he was so high up on the list, although he has been making steady progress with recovering over the past couple of weeks although he's not entirely off the danger list

I'm not so sure on this one, although his demise would certainly benefit Republicans like myself over here in the states. It sounds like he will be acting a lot like Ariel Sharon over the next year - in and out of conciousness, etc...
