Names & Faces: Ripkin tours CIA. . . Bally names Kennedy fittest president, followed by Clinton. . . Ellsberg will be on panel at Silver Theatre tomorrow. . . Jessi Klein: "I think we're divided into Michael Moore states and Bill O'Reilly states -- the undecided states are [Don] Imuses. We like to see things in black and white, good and evil. We're a Lord of the Rings country." [WP]


Inside Politics: Halperin's father heads Soros' Open Society Public Center. [WT]

Inside the Beltway: Chalabi says Iraqi insurgents favor Kerry: "They may feel that John Kerry doesn't have the investment, the political investment in the Iraqi situation that President Bush has.". . . Bumper sticker: "I Actually Voted For John Kerry Before I Voted Against Him." [WT]

Lloyd Grove's Lowdown: Jon Stewart criticizes Novak for causing expensive investigation: "Novak apparently broke his hip. I think that's not the case. I think his hip tried to escape.". . . Franken on O'Reilly scandal: "It seems like a sad thing. . . If this is true, there'll be enough schadenfreude to fuel. . . " Hillary to Kenneth Cole, Hilfiger, Zac Posen: "If we don't get a new President, the next four years will be a burden that will fall upon so many Americans and particularly Americans who are free thinkers, who are creative, who want the freedom to be able to do what they see and feel in their hearts is their destiny and dream!"

Rush & Molloy: More Stewart, at panel set to air on C-SPAN: "It's as if a guy drove me into a ditch and said, 'Don't worry, I know how to drive us out of this.'

"The whole town is talking about" Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, who wore the same suit three nights last week. [NYDN]

Liz Smith: Would Stewart want Bush's reelection for the jokes? "From a purely comic perspective, you'd want Mr. T to be president. That would be truly fun. But no, I don't cheer for the demise and erosion of the world purely for my own professional standing. I can write jokes about anything!" [NYP]

Page Six: Sundance Channel source says everyone there hates Franken: "He obsesses over every single promo and laughs uproariously at his own bad jokes. He thinks he's hilarious. And he's so bossy during the editing process." [NYP]
