Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) visited Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. at Mayo Clinic last week, bringing him a poster-sized get well card with messages from his House colleagues. On his Twitter feed Kucinich said Monday, "Visited w/ Rep. Jackson Fri, Sat @ Mayo. Photo w/ Cong. get well card. Kind words of colleagues clearly meant a lot."

Jackson is being treated for Bipolar II Depression; former Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) also visited with him last week.
