Will the Plame Affair screw the White House more generally?

Wonkette engages in some wishful speculation:
Will the Plame thing do it? Sure, it seems cut and dried: The NYT states plainly, for example, that the WH promised "any administration official found to have been involved in leaking the name of an undercover C.I.A. officer would be fired." Rove was surely 'involved' in the name getting out, even if Matt Cooper's email suggests Karl didn't leak the actual name. Ergo, if Bush doesn't fire Rove, then he's a big liar, everyone's disgraced, his approval rating plummets even further, mass resignations, even the copy boys get laid, Hillary in '08, etc.
Meanwhile, Kevin Drum refers back to his own wishful speculation that the second Buch term would be marked by an enfilade of scandal.
