The fundraising lunch featuring Sarah Palin, originally slated to be held at Siebel Systems founder Tom Siebel's home in Woodside? It won't be in Woodside, it won't feature Sarah Palin, and it may not happen at all. Not due to lack of interest — so many tickets were sold, the lunch had to be moved to the convention center in Santa Clara. Ditto for a rally in Orange County. But Obama's lead in California is so large that the number crunchers in the GOP reconsidered. The party apparently decided that it Palin's time was more precious in more closely contested electoral races, meaning the Valley's loss is Ohio's gain.
