Is Hawaii Sen. Dan Inouye On The Mend? No One Will Say12/14/2012
It's been more than a week since U.S. Sen. Daniel K. Inouye was admitted to the hospital, yet his status as of Thursday remained closely guarded.
On Monday, Inouye was quoted in publications across the country as saying he was "for the most part" OK.
But since then, the public has received little information about Inouye, who is without question Hawaii's most powerful political leader and, as the man third in line to be president, also an important national figure.
