Jobs, I have no interest in meeting our President, who the only reason why he is our pres is because he is a smoothtalker, and his US Citizenship has yet to be proven yet we still allow him to be President...

Obama would probably turn out to be a stupid drone taking orders on a cell-phone so I pick Steve

obama because i need to ask him why he ran inspiring the hearts of people against the war and didn't keep his promises.
conversation between an anarchist and a democrat politician :] interesting dinner...
i hope i wouldn't get star struck and back down.
obama has a way with words --- inspiring words!
but...they're often hollow, i find =/
i feel he'd be able to talk down my fury with powerful metaphors. i hope i'd hold my ground.

Tough choice. But I would probably ask Obama. The only thing I have to say to Jobs is that the iPad was a stupid idea.

Obama seems like he'd just be more interesting.
Not that Steve Jobs wouldn't be interesting, I just can't think of anything I'd want to say to him besides "Hey, thanks for iPods. They rock."

The President.

If the idea is to have a good time and exchanges some thoughts and ideas, then 100% of the time I would choose O'Bama over someone whom gives of an aura of a pompous asshole. The few times I have seen the Pres in candid, and pseudo-candid moments he comes off like a regular guy even when stressed. To me Jobs has not, in any similar instance, come off any other way than a prick.

I would even take my chances with James Cameron (whose accomplishments and imagination I respect highly but) who is known for being an a-hole sometimes, over Steve Jobs every time.

That's an awesome question. I'd have to go with Jobs, even though I really admire Obama. I have a pretty good feeling that I'd have far more to talk about with Jobs.

I honestly don't think I'd understand Obama's world enough to glean any useful insight or offer any useful input. At least Jobs I would be able to have some degree of intelligent conversation. (That's more of a judgement of my ability to converse with Obama than his intelligence.)

I went with Obama simply based on hunter thompson's notion that 'he is after all, the president'. Jobs has done a fair amount for us in the area of technology and branding, but (at least as far as I am aware), he does not have the codes that can destroy the fucking world.

Besides, Obama`s cool.

Neither, but if I had to - Jobs; to head slap the smug sanctimonious git and explain what engineering is really about (the product works they way you claim first time it's released every time, and not thinking someone will use in a different hand than yourself is not an excuse).

while, i undoubtedly have more things id like to say to obama concerning the state of affairs in our country; and how he is making things worse; i would hae to say steve jobs. But not because i live jobs, in fact i rather dislike apple and the software they produce; rather, i feel we could hold a much more intellectual and stimulating conversation than obama could hope to hold. ;p

I don't even like Apple and I had to think about this one. I personally don't care for politics because of the constant arguing. But I don't think I could ask Steve Jobs a question without getting a really conceited answer, so in the end it'd probably be with Obama. He'd probably have more food too.

I would go with Steve Jobs. I have met both and quite frankly Jobs is more interesting as a lunchin type. The President I imagine would be not much diffrent then when I met his as Senator, or professor. However that position can change people.

I would love to talk to both, but I think my first choice would be Obama. I used to work in corporate management and have dealt with many upper businessmen. They tend to be very direct and focused on profits and future planning for more profits. It gets old.
I would love to talk with Obama, or any President for that matter, to get a sense of what it is like to hold a position of such responsibility.

They are both incredibly awesome and inspiring people.....but here's some great quotes from Steve Jobs that many of you haven't read....

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do,” says Jobs. “If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.”

“You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future,” says Jobs. “You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

“The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better designs we will have,” says Jobs

“Innovation is the distinction between a leader and a follower,” says Jobs.

When Jobs was 17 years old, he read a quote that would stay with him forever: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you\'ll most certainly be right.” Since then, he has looked himself in the mirror every morning and asked himself whether or not he would do the same thing that day if it were his last day alive. “Whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something,” he says.

Obama has some great quotes, too, but his actions are worthy enough. I liked that he made a point to swear on the original Bible that Lincoln swore on. He wants people to know to that he has made a sincere commitment to serving this country and the world, as well, just like Lincoln did.

Even though Obama hasn't done anything visibly dramatic enough to change any stalwart Republican's heart....he's a living example of the decline of racism in America. I'm, also, not ashamed to hear him speak like I was every time G. Dubya opened his mouth. If McCain or Palin had won the election....I would have completely lost hope for my home country. Hope lives....

The President of the United States of America, is by far the best choice. Steve Job's is very successful, however he is also a control freak bilking Billions of dollars out of the US Citizens, as well as the rest of the world. People (In the US), who needs work, in order to make money to then help keep Steve Jobs rich.. I think there is a flow of logic here. As the Presidents name is spelled 'Barack' Obama. One 'R" not two. ;)

I think a worldly dinner, oil spill activity in the gulf, as well as the overall economy would be far better than hearing about the iPhone 4, 5 or 25.. Or any other iCrap device he is dreaming up.. Its amazing of the crap they try to sell you these days.

A very hard choice.

However, Barack Obama is basically THE most important and significant man in the whole entire world.

It would be an extremely memorable experience, either one.

Anyway, I voted Jobs, yes I am a Mac guy, but he really has made some impressive achievements and he's always thinking ahead of time. Once I watched the movie "Pirates of Silicon Valley" I got intrigued by Steve Jobs as a character. I love this video [link] you can tell in his expression at around 4:00 that he really did it... and he has done it ever since!
