It wasn't a stroke. From AP/Yahoo:
WASHINGTON - Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson (news, bio, voting record) of South Dakota was hospitalized after becoming disoriented Wednesday, weeks before his party is to take control of the Senate by a one-vote margin.
Johnson, who turns 60 on Dec. 28, was admitted to George Washington University Hospital with an undiagnosed illness, said a spokeswoman, Julianne Fisher.
She said, however, the senator did not suffer a stroke or heart attack. His office had said earlier it was a possible stroke.
I'm glad it wasn't a stroke or heart attack. Here's hoping that they find out exactly what happened and that it's not serious.

I share DeLay's sentiments. Get well soon, Sen. Johnson.
