    Yeah, I'm sure it makes sense because the press will refer to it as cablegate so they should do the same thing. I'm not really sure how this began either, Watergate was ages ago yet the adding of gate to denote a scandal is quite a recent thing afaik.

    I wonder how long until Nixon's henchmen breaking into the DNC Headquarters in Washington becomes Watergategate?

    Amusingly, Wikipedia has a List of scandals with -gate. Quite a few there, dating back to the 70s. Although sadly no Gategate :(
