Does Python scale for heavy web loads?

Question: Using Python as a CGI and running it under Apache, would
Python realistically be able to handle 5,000 hits an hour and not
degrade performance?  With Python's threading, (ex: using a Default.py
script as an example) I call Default.py to render some information,
only one thread runs Default.py right?  No other people can hit
Default.py until Default.py finishes with its original request and
serving the information back...Correct?

Thanks.
