    To score a meeting with Batkid, one will have to get in line.

    And that goes for President Barack Obama, too.

    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.

    But Batkid, who the president asked to meet, was not available: he was in New York, on Good Morning America.

    Miles, whose leukemia is in remission, lives in Tulelake in northern California.
