When President Barack Obama comes to San Francisco later this month, you can meet the most powerful man in the world for a hefty price -- $35,000 to be exact. "Obama supporters acknowledge that the $35,800 per person San Francisco Obama Victory Fund dinner may represent a new pricetag high for political fundraising," reports the Chronicle's Carla Marinucci. "After all, loyal Dems thought the ceiling was reached last Oct. 21, when tickets to that Obama dinner in the Palo Alto home of Google executive Marissa Mayer hit an astonishing $30,800 per person."

What's more, Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff will host the dinner. And "[d]onors are guaranteed that the president will speak to each table individually, with a photographer in tow to capture the moment."

We imagine there will be no press list, however. Alas.
