Sen. Mark Kirk has left the hospital and gone home.
And the sooner he returns to Washington, all the better.
The Capitol remains in short supply of thoughtful legislators willing to work across the aisle.
In the meantime, we’d like to express admiration for the way Kirk has battled back from the stroke he suffered on Jan. 21, and for the way he has dug back into work.
When he’s not rehabbing on a treadmill, we are told, he’s reading policy white papers. Knowing the man’s passion for his job and country, we have no doubt.
