Barack Obama And His BlackBerry
Over the course of the presidential campaign, Barack Obama was photographed many, many times with his hands glued to his BlackBerry, or with it attached to his hip in a holster. Soon, Obama’s love affair with his PDA may end. When he moves into the White House this January, his correspondence will be collected under the Presidential Records Act, and there is always the risk of messages being intercepted. No president has been able to have email, and it doesn’t look like Obama will be able to break that barrier. After the jump, read made-up email and text messages Obama would send if he were able to use his BlackBerry while in office. TO: Michelle
