Steve Jobs told Obama he would be a one-termer

When the late Apple co-founder met with President Obama, Jobs gave the president ideas about generating jobs and retaining talented engineers from overseas, Jobs' biographer tells "60 Minutes."

Steve Jobs met with President Obama a few times and gave him ideas for how to generate jobs in the U.S., according to his biographer, Walter Isaacson.

Jobs also told Isaacson that Obama needed a management style more like his own, which could be both mean and manipulative. They clashed over how best to attract and retain talented overseas engineers. And even though Jobs had supported Obama's candidacy, he also warned Obama that he would be a one-term president.
