    The president on Monday was unable to schedule a meeting with 5-year old Miles Scott, the heroic Batkid who captured the hearts and minds of millions of people worldwide a few short weeks ago, according to reports.

    Obama visited San Francisco on Monday in order to meet with donors, including friends of Salesforce.com founder Marc Benioff, who hosted a $32,500-a-plate fundraiser at this home.
