Biden surgery

Delaware Senator Joseph Biden has left a Florida hospital, a day after undergoing emergency gallbladder surgery.

His spokesman says the senator is "doing great," but will spend a few more days in Florida recuperating. Biden was on a weekend vacation in Fort Myers with his wife and daughter when he began experiencing abdominal pain Saturday.

He checked himself into the hospital. The 60-year-old Biden is a possible Democratic presidential candidate.
