Barbara Walters asks the tough questions:
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 ten 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.
