Tonight we’re talking to four successful women who have at least this much in common; they’ve risen to the very top in traditionally male dominated fields.

Our panel of experts will be tackling issues that working women face and sharing how they’ve overcome obstacles to make a name for themselves. The panelists are financial powerhouse Suze Orman, first female White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers, neurosurgeon and author Dr. Katrina Firlik and professional poker player Maria Ho.

We’re also focusing on the Tuesday elections. Many of you will be voting, so we’re breaking down the races and the issues. Members of the best political team on television will also look the changed landscape for Democratic and Republican candidates – exactly one year after the general election.

And Afghan electoral officials have declared incumbent President Hamid Karzai the winner of the 2009 presidential election. The announcement was made after opposition leader Abdullah Abdullah withdrew saying he believed a second round of voting would be fraudulent. We’ll dig deeper tonight on the implications of Karzai’s presidency on U.S. strategy in Afghanistan.

What else are you following? Let us know and see you at 10 p.m. ET

    I think women need to be able to respect our male bonding time, and learn to appreciate a separate but equal workplace. Please feel free to setup your own 'girls club' full of female poker games and women only sports games.
