Traders, how would you play the election?

If defense stocks get sold off ahead of the election, I’d be a buyer, says Guy Adami.

Or if bio-fuels rally I’d sell them, adds Jon Najarian.

If it looks like McCain is going to win, play nuclear with Market Vectors-Nuclear Energy ETF , counsels Quint Tatro.
