Slate writers Dahlia Lithwick, Hanna Rosin, and Emily Yoffe discuss the results of the midterm elections and what they mean for women. Find out who rates as a reality-TV candidate, and whether that's good or bad. Also, find out whether this election means permanent changes for how American women vote and how they run for office. The Gabbers detour into President Obama's response to the elections and talk about the recent Supreme Court case on video game violence. Lithwick asks: Does "momism" also affect the court?

Rosin: the new translation of Madame Bovary.
