The Mayo Clinic said Monday Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. was being treated for "Bipolar II depression" in a update released at the request of lawmaker, absent from Congress since June 10. It's a treatable ailment and Jackson's re-election campaign continues, I report HERE. Former Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) checked in Mayo in 2006 for bipolar disorder treatment; he plans to visit Jackson at Mayo later this week.
