Obama Must Say Goodbye To His Blackberry

Come Inauguration Day, Obama must surrender his Blackberry.

The NY Times states: "In addition to concerns about e-mail security, he faces the Presidential Records Act, which puts his correspondence in the official record and ultimately up for public review, and the threat of subpoenas. A decision has not been made on whether he could become the first e-mailing president, but aides said that seemed doubtful."

This concept is so strange to me. I never knew that presidents were not allowed to carry cell phones or use email. It seems like once you become president, you re-enter the stone age. Personally, I don't think I would be able to cope.

Could you?
