Diana Owen, who leads the American Studies program at Georgetown University, said presidents were not advised to use e-mail because of security risks and fear that messages could be intercepted.
“They could come up with some bulletproof way of protecting his e-mail and digital correspondence, but anything can be hacked,” said Ms. Owen, who has studied how presidents communicate in the Internet era. “The nature of the president’s job is that others can use e-mail for him.”
This is a rationalization for a quaint anachronism.
Oh? Considering how this site LOVES to publish the never ending exploits in a constantly connected world, what am I missing? Of course his email would be hacked. It would get hacked in a nanosecond.
Why doesn't he just have a DNC address, and then they can "accidentally" delete his mail when someone asks for it?
