            Good Potential - Scalability
            This seems to be a pretty cool. Runs DailyKos so must be pretty scalable.

            Wordpress can be quite slow once you get over 10,000 visitors a day (2.0 does takes even more queries than ever before to produce a page)

            So this is worth a look if you've got a big project happening.
