The final debate's over. Polls say Obama's star is rising. Can McCain make a comeback? Tony sees a glimmer of hope in the polls. Bob defends the underdog, but calls some of his followers scary.

Matt says he's heard that Colin Powell will announce for Obama this weekend. Enough politics: how 'bout that economy? Bob tells us why he bought Google and "did the right thing" while making a 50% profit. Bob stresses the need to help the homeowner, not the bandit bankers; Matt says we need both mortgage relief and an economic stimulus, and is writing a piece about his conversion away from fiscal conservatism, Why I Stopped Worrying and I Learned to Love the Trillion Dollar Debt… We'll share it once it's published.
