Asked directly about the allegations Friday morning on a radio show, Kerry, married to Theresa Heinz Kerry, heiress to the food empire, did not flatly deny them, but said: "There is nothing to report, nothing to talk about. There's nothing there. There's no story" Kerry, who has won 12 of the 14 Democratic primaries and who has looked all but certain to win the party's nomination, told the veteran broadcaster, Don Imus, he was the victim of a dirty tricks campaign. "We've seen evidence. We know exactly where these guys are gonna go, and I'm ready for it," he said.
It said that retired general Wesley Clark had told reporters just days before he dropped out of the Democratic race, that "Kerry will implode over an intern issue". Clark, meanwhile, endorsed Kerry, something interpreted by some Washington observers as an effort to try and repair any damage his off-the-record comments had done.
Reports Friday identified the young woman as Alex Polier, 24, and said she had fled to Kenya after being approached by the media.
The Sun newspaper quoted Polier's father, Terry, from Malvern, Pennsylvania, as calling Kerry a "sleazeball". - Independent Foreign Service

Kerry says there is "no story".

These sex scandals get a lot of press and ratings, but ultimately it doesn't have much impact with the voters.
Clinton survived it. Not only did he get elected, but his approval ratings remained high, even during the Monica scandal.
Scharzenegger's alleged womanizing had absolutely no impact on the voters whatsoever. In fact the newspaper that broke the story was swamped with cancelled subscriptions. And women didn't care. They still voted for him.
These stories are entertaining, but they don't seem to matter very much.

So what if it is a negative thread about Kerry! Negative (opinions) threads don't have to be a bad thing. It's the personal jabs that make the thread go bad. As long as we don't bash eachother, what is the problem with voicing our concerns about republicans or democrats? Can there be no negative threads about democrats? It seems when a democrat gets bashed, it's a mortal sin. Look at ALL the negative threads about Bush! Come on kids, let's play fair. It goes both ways.
