Rumors of Infidelity

Washington is so bored with the rapidly disappearing presidential nomination battle that new subjects are being scared up. Right or wrong, online sources get the jump on other media because they are willing to run with conjecture while newspapers and tv/radio news generally want more evidence before putting out a story.

Such is the case this morning, as the Drudge Report (not necessarily the most reliable or unbiased of sources), brings us breaking rumors of infidelity by Sen. John Kerry.

If this doesn't pan out, the political class will have to go back to discussing whether Gov. Bill Richardson or Sen. Edwards will make it into the vp slot.
