How do we heal the heart of our democracy and find ways to work together across America's two party political divide?

The election results are in, and the next two years for sure will have split government. Are we going to go back yet again to the polarized politics that have paralyzed Washington? That seems truly insane. So this roundtable will reinvent bipartisanship. We will step back and talk about new approaches to healing the great divide between Republicans and Democrats, between red and blue America. We’ll also talk about practical issues where common ground can more easily be found in the next Congress. Join co-anchors Joan Blades and Jacob Hess along with a very politically diverse group.

Participants include:
Jacqueline Salit, President of IndependentVoting.org

It's a good thing that Ebola is breaking out in the 21st century because only now do we have the means to stop it in its tracks. There are an array of new tools and technologies that could allow America to rapidly respond in unprecedented ways. One key problem is getting these approved and adopted by the federal goverment. We'll bring together innovators from inside and outside government to figure out new ways to accelerate the technology adoption process to more effectively fight ebola - and other diseases that might come in the decades ahead.

Food guru Michael Pollan thinks that the current food movement has too broad an agenda of single issues and could benefit from focusing on one big umbrella issue much like the gay rights movement did around marriage equality. How could the tech world - its new technologies, disruptive approaches, and burgeoning resources - help the food movement coalesce around one big unifying issue? Join Pollan and anchor Ali Partovi, a serial tech entrepreneur now applying himself to food issues, in this fascinating roundtable.

Where will the leading edge of digital technologies push the field of politics and social change in this 2014 election cycle?

We've had six cycles in the development of digital tools impacting politics and social change since Howard Dean's groundbreaking online campaign in 2004. Every two years, in sync with the electoral cycles, some new developments give a strategic advantage to someone that sets a new bar for what then becomes standard practice in the field. What will be seen as the developments this cycle that will make a big difference and push the field forward once again?

Join +Ben Rattray , the founder and CEO of Change.org, and a great group in this fascinating and timely roundtable.

Participants include:
+Joe Trippi , Political strategist, media consultant & FOX News contributor
+Jim Greer , founder of CounterPAC
+Chris Kelly , CEO of Organizer & former Chief Privacy Officer of Facebook
+Nancy Scola , Technology & Politics Reporter at The Washington Post
Ann Ravel, Vice Chair of the Federal Election Commission
+Gregory Miller, Co-Executive Director and Chief Development Officer of the TrustTheVote Project
+Josh Ginsberg, Co-Founder and CEO of Zignal Labs

To really understand what happened with the botched launch of healthcare.gov, you must understand something about procurement, or the way government buys stuff. This roundtable will take on this difficult problem: "How can we make the way government buys technology compatible with the way good technology is now built - yet ensure the process is fair and people are accountable?" In effect, we have to figure out a way for government to routinely do agile technology development but also go back to the first principles of how we ensure the process is fair and competitive.
