This week, Farai Chideya sits down with Eric Deggans of The Saint Petersburg Times and CNN news anchor Fredricka Whitfield to discuss Barack Obama's refusal of public campaign financing.

The panel also discusses how the government has applied lessons from the Hurricane Katrina disaster to help the flood victims in Iowa and why the arrests of former Bear Sterns' executives may change the future of the mortgage industry.
