Colmes asked him questions about Alito, strip searches and shooting fleeing, unarmed criminals. Bob says: (rough trans.)

Bob: I don't think that is a very good issue for his opponents. I think the danger is the Democrats have is they're going to looking weak on law enforcement and weak on National security....

Strip searching that little girl sure is a winner for Alito. Meanwhile, Hannity really enjoyed Novak yelling" bullshit," and storming off the stage with Carville.

Novak was asked by the CIA no to print Valerie's name, but he did anyone and know his regret is that it caused him trouble. He said the same thing on his last interview on CNN. Hannity and Novak- "a better match has not been made."

Newshounds has a transcript.

NOVAK: I didn’t really say that. I said if I had it to do again, I probably wouldn’t do it. I don’t think I made any mistake at all. She was not – I don’t believe she was an undercover agent, I never have. The CIA never told me that it would cause any damage, because I don’t think it would. So that is not the regret.

He said he warned Novak, in the strongest terms he was permitted to use without revealing classified information, that Wilson’s wife had not authorized the mission and that if he did write about it, her name should not be on
