Obama Still Steadfast on Keeping His BlackBerry: "They're Going to Pry It Out of My Hands"

We already knew Obama was looking for ways to keep his BlackBerry, but it seems that he is now in a desperate struggle with the Secret Service and his lawyers.

In an interview with CNBC and the New York Times, President-Elect Obama noted: "I'm still clinging to my BlackBerry. They're going to pry it out of my hands."

So how is this going to end? Obama adds: "I don't know that I'll win, but I'm still fighting it." With Crackberry addicts this hardcore, I think there is only one way it can end—with him writhing around on the floor clutching the Blackberry to his chest shouting "Mine!" Eventually, a team of Secret Service agents will commence with a tickle fight until he finally relents. [NYT]
