President Obama may become the first emailing president. His advisors and and the Secret Service have given him the green light to keep his BlackBerry.
Obama has waged a very public campaign to keep his device. Tradition has kept previous commanders-in-chief from emailing. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters yesterday that a "compromise" will allow the President to use his BlackBerry to stay connected with senior staff and a few friends. He said it will allow Obama to avoid being stuck in a "bubble."
The president did have to give up one thing - his old email address. His new one , of course, is classified.
