A smart Democrat’s read of the Kerry “scandal”:

To look at it from an economic point of view, this has all the earmarks of a “demand-pull” story. The whole hep political world spends a week saying: “Only a big ol’ sex scandal could stop Kerry now!” There’s a low-level not-so-scandalous rumor involving sex and Kerry and the magic word “intern” that’s been kicking around for a while. Demand’s so strong it pulls in whatever’s out there in the way of supply, and thanks to Drudge, it’s now a “story” that “rocks the campaign.”

I may be wrong, but it sure looks bogus to me.
