After some inspring West Coast meetings with veterans and entrepreneurs on Monday and Tuesday, we’ll be giving  you an updated on our push to create the 30 Million Jobs we need.  Dylan had the chance to meet up with GC Green’s Liz Perez (see photo to the left) — and we’ll have even more exciting news to bring you on the vets and jobs front.  To get a look at the bigger picture of employment in the U.S., we’ll also talk with  David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf), Pres. & CEO of Garten Rothkopf .

The Wednesday Mega-Panel: Imogen Lloyd Webber (@illoydwebber), Jonathan Capehart (@capehartj) and Rob Cox (@rob1cox).  We’ll discuss President Obama’s meeting with Boehner and congressional leadership today — as Boehner is vowing another showdown over taxes and spending, we ask “again!?”  We’ll also look at the Americans Elect campaign — $35 million was spent, but it failed to get enough support in the online petition for candidate.  What does that mean for a viable third-party candidate?

The Specialist: We’re very much looking forward to this one — Tim Harford (@timharford), author of Adapt: Why Success Always Starts With Failure, will be joining us from London.  In his book, Tim shows us a new and inspiring approach to solving the most pressing problems in our lives. Harford argues that today’s challenges simply cannot be tackled with ready-made solutions and expert opinions; the world has become far too unpredictable and profoundly complex. Instead, we must adapt—improvise rather than plan, work from the bottom up rather than the top down, and take baby steps rather than great leaps forward.

Battleship!: In the new and soon-to-be-blockbuster movie based on the classic board game, a fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals.  The creators of Battleship wanted to include an actor who had been wounded in the film — we’ll be joined by Col. Greg Gadson, an Army commander who served in Iraq. In 2007, Gadson lost both of his legs when his car was hit by a roadside bomb.  He now runs the Wounded Warriors Program (@wwpinc).

The Daily Rant: Melber’s Minute:  Many people are saying that Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage was all politics and — Ari agrees,  and he’ll argue that he doesn’t think that’s a bad thing.
