Stir hot consomme into gelatin mixture, continuing to stir until mixture is dissolved completely, and let cool. Rinse a 4-cup ring mold with cold water and drain but do not dry. Pour 2 tablespoons consomme mixture into mold and chill 10 minutes, or until set. Sprinkle aspic layer with 2 tablespoons each tomatoes and chives and spoon about 2 tablespoons consomme mixture over to just cover. Chill aspic 10 minutes, or until set. In a bowl with an electric mixer beat cream cheese just until light and fold in Roquefort and remaining tomatoes and chives. Gently stir in remaining consomme mixture until incorporated and ladle over aspic. Chill mousse, covered, 3 hours, or until set. Dip bottom of mold into a sink of warm water 10 seconds and run a thin knife around edge of mold. Invert a serving plate over mold and invert mold onto it. Serve mousse with toasts or crackers.
