O-BlackBerry May Get White House Role

President-elect talks about becoming isolated as president during ABC interview with Barbara Walters

President-elect Barack Obama may not be handing over his BlackBerry quite so fast .

During an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" in Chicago, Obama told Barbara Walters he doesn't want to become isolated as president. 

"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," Obama says in the interview. "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."

Looks like giving up the BlackBerry may prove as difficult for Obama as giving up smoking.
