Obama Negotiating to Keep His Blackberry

Barbara Walters Obama Interview On ABC (VIDEO):
"WALTERS: How are you going to get along without your Blackberry?

OBAMA: (Laughs). This is a problem. I, you know, one of the things that I'm going to have to work through is how to break through the isolation ... the bubble that exists around the president. And I'm in the process of negotiating with the Secret Service, with lawyers, with White House staff ...

WALTERS: You might have a Blackberry?

OBAMA: Well, I'm, I'm negotiating to figure out how can I get information from outside of the 10 or 12 people who surround my office in the White House. Because, one of the worst things I think that could happen to a president is losing touch with what people are going through day to day."

    How will Obama deal with the loss of his beloved BlackBerry if he has to surrender it before he takes office? Read a tongue in cheek letter to President-elect Obama at Thumbs at Rest: Will Obama Give up the CrackBerry Habit?
