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.
