That was fast! After arriving at SFO yesterday at 3:12 PM and giving what looks like a breast exam to our Mayor, what did Barack Obama do during his brief trip to the Bay Area? Let’s take a look:

He met up with Apple CEO Steve Jobs for about 45 minutes, where they talked “American competitiveness and education,” at the Westin by the airport.

Then he spent less than an hour at the Atherton home of former state controller Steve Westley for a $30,400 a person fundraiser for the DNC, where he posed with folks who paid $6,500 to get their pictures taken with the president. (That money went to CA Attorney General candidate Kamala Harris.)

Fun fact: the Harris fundraiser was relegated to the guesthouse of the Westley estate, while the DNC fundraiser took place in the main house. Westley wouldn’t say who or how many folks were in attendance, or how much money was raised.

Finally, he visited the Palo Alto home of Google exec Marissa Meyer for a $30,400 a person dinner for 50. For that, you got to eat, hear Obama speak on thing like “can-do spirit,” and get your picture taken with him.

By 9:30 he was back at the SFO Westin for the night.

He hopped back on Air Force One a little after 10 this morning. And poof. Just like that, he’s gone.
