144. Oliphant CONFIRMED it.
Sorry you don't like it, but it is a fact.

Wesley Clark Throws Fuel on the Fire

Despite his recent endorsement of Kerry, in an off-the-record conversation with a dozen reporters earlier this week, General Wesley Clark allegedly stated: "Kerry will implode over an intern issue," according to a Drudge story released Thursday.

In a subsequent Boston Globe report, Thomas Oliphant confirms the story saying, "Clark actually said he was still in the race because he thought Kerry's campaign was going to implode over what he inelegantly called an 'intern' scandal."

Talon News is also reporting that Craig Crawford of the Congressional Quarterly said that Chris Lahane, Clark's press secretary and a previous adviser to former Vice President Al Gore, has known about the Kerry affair story for a while and "has shopped around for a long time" to find someone to publish it.

Sources told the Drudge Report - who previously broke the story on Bill Clinton's affair with intern Monica Lewinsky in 1998 - that these allegations are the reason why Dean decided not to drop out of the race after Wisconsin and turned increasingly aggressive against the front-running rival in recent days.
