Tony (sort of) defends his charge that Obama is a committed Marxist, Arianna calls McCain's campaign McCarthyite; Bob says socialism for the rich is the wrong game plan, and Matt says he hopes that whoever gets elected will step in decisively and put America back on the economic track.

Under Obama, will we see extensive government regulation that could stifle a recovery? We'll know on Tuesday.
