A lot of newspapers and magazines have been printing stories speculating what life will be like for the Obama’s when they move into the White House but none of them (that I’ve read) have taken this approach.
According to this New York Times article there will come a time when Mr. Obama will have to give up his cell phone, email, and any other electronic device or account that could lend a possible helping hand to all those pesky hackers out there. Its nothing new to the Presidency, even George Bush had to give up his old AOL account once he started his term.
According to the arcitle G Dubb sent out this email to his closest friends just before his accounts were shut down, “Since I do not want my private conversations looked at by those out to embarrass, the only course of action is not to correspond in cyberspace,” Mr. Bush wrote. “This saddens me. I have enjoyed conversing with each of you.”
Hopefully, we won’t be hearing any Obamagate tapes any time soon!
