" Tapper grew up in Queen Village, in the house where his mother, Anne Tapper, still lives. "That Philly wasn't as fancy as today's Philly is," he says. His parents "split when I was 8.

  JAKE TAPPER, the host of CNN's "The Lead," may be Queen Village born and bred, but his next project takes him to Pine Valley, the fictitious setting of soap opera "All My Children. " Tapper really stretches his acting muscle in a cameo in an Aug. 12 episode playing - what else? - an annoying journalist named Spencer Phillips , a faux business reporter. Alas, his plotline involves no evil twins. And he's never coma-ridden. Not even once. "All My Children" was canceled in 2011, but the show was resurrected online and is available through the Online Network via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes.

"The message has been clear," he wrote. "Wilson Goode cannot effectively run this city. " Earnest might be one way to describe its tone. Tapper, who at the advanced age of 32 is the Washington correspondent for the online magazine Salon.com and author of the just-published Down & Dirty: The Plot to Steal the Presidency, has another word: Obnoxious.

The list of panelists who will join President Clinton at the Dec. 13 Entitlements Conference at Bryn Mawr College reads like a Who's Who in the deficit reduction field. It includes former Sen. Paul Tsongas of Massachusetts, who made the deficit the focal point of his campaign for the 1992 Democratic presidential nomination; former Sen. Warren Rudman, a New Hampshire Republican who declined to run for re-election in 1992 because he said Congress could not effectively deal with the deficit; and Sen. Bob Kerrey (D., Neb.)

Gov. Christie said Tuesday that if he'd been president in 2003 and had known that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction, he would not have gone to war. "Now, I think President Bush made the best decision he could at the time," given the information the intelligence community had provided to him, Christie told CNN's Jake Tapper in an interview. "But I don't think you can honestly say that if we knew then that there was no WMD, that the country should've gone to war," Christie said.

"Congressional press secretary" does not exactly top the list of possible entry-level jobs for recent college graduates. In fact, it's not on the list. That is part of the reason Jake P. Tapper never expected to land where he has. At 24, he is one of the youngest congressional press secretaries in Washington. And he works for one of the most talked-about freshmen, U.S. Rep. Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky. "A lot of people will make comments about my age," Tapper, who looks more like he's 21, said last week.
