Grapevine: Did Steve Jobs Criticize Obama?

And now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine...

i-Warn You

A new biography of the late Steve Jobs, gives a glimpse inside the Apple founder's complicated relationship with President Obama.

The Huffington Post obtained a copy of the book by author Walter Isaacson, which describes a meeting last fall.

Jobs told Mr. Obama -- quote -- "You're headed for a one-term presidency." Insisting the administration needed to be more business- friendly.

Despite his concerns, Jobs did offer to help create the president's political ads for the 2012 campaign.

Post-Mortem

Well, leave it to the New York Post to have a unique take on Muammar Qaddafi's death.

The front page headline today reads -- quote -- "Qaddafi killed by Yankee Fan" with a picture of one of the rebels wearing a Yankees cap.

The sub-headline -- quote -- "Gunman had more hits than A-Rod" -- referring to Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez and his poor performance in the playoffs this year.

One sports blog wrote -- quote -- "Working an A-Rod joke (at his expense of course) into the killing of a notorious former autocratic ruler? Post, we can't believe anything still makes us say this, but we didn't know you had it in you."

The Post is owned by the parent company of Fox News.

Picture Perfect

Finally, we told you when Qaddafi's compound was raided this summer, rebels found a photo album containing pictures of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

The Daily Beast obtained an excerpt from her new memoir, in which Rice acknowledges Qaddafi's -- quote-- "slightly eerie fascination"-- with her.

She writes, during a 2008 visit, he presented her with a videotape containing photos of her and other world leaders set to a song called "Black Flower in the White House."

Rice writes -- quote -- "It was weird, but at least it wasn't raunchy."
