Steve Jobs Meeting With President Obama This Afternoon

Steve Jobs is reportedly having a one-on-one meeting with President Obama.

Jobs is meeting the president just before Obama speaks at the Palo Alto home of Google executive Marissa Mayer’s this evening.

The meeting with Steve Jobs is not on the president’s official calendar, but a White House official confirmed the meeting will occur.

Jobs is no stranger to meeting presidents. In June, he hung out with Russian president Dimitry Medvedev (who is an iPad user), and has had President Clinton over for dinner. Jobs and his wife are Democratic party contributors; and Obama is a famous Mac user.

Obama’s speech at Marissa’s Mayer’s house is at 7PM PST/10PM EST.
