Obama Family Gets New Dog
'Bo' a Portuguese Water Dog

More on the New First Dog Here

Finally the long national wait is over:
We know the identity of the Obama
family pet. The first dog is a 6-month
old Portuguese water dog named Bo.

The dog was given by Sen. Edward
M. Kennedy (D-Mass), who has three
Porties and who lobbied for the breed.

The Obamas decided to name the dog
Bo for two reasons: 1. The girls, Sasha,
7, and Malia, 10, have cousins with a cat
named Bo and 2. First Lady Michelle
Obama's father was nicknamed Diddley,
after the singer Bo Diddley.

The First Dog has tuxedo-black fur,
with a white chest, white paws and a
rakish white goatee.

Barack Obama's Blackberry
President Obama's Unique Secure Blackberry Device

On February 1, 2009 President Obama was interviewed by NBC live from the White House to discuss the XLIII Super Bowl.
Obama jokingly compared his "gadget" to a James Bond device. Obama said his Blackberry "has the works" and "can turn into
a car."  "Only a handful" of people have Obama's e-mail address, but not world leaders, "They know how to reach me" at the
Oval Office. Security issues required a customized version of the Blackberry device for President Barack Obama.

Portion of the Interview RE: Obama's Blackberry

Interviewed by Matt Lauer of NBC

February 1, 2009

Q Letís talk about the BlackBerry, all right? You got to keep it.

THE PRESIDENT: I did.

Q Can I see it? Do you have it?

THE PRESIDENT: You know, I didnít bring it down here.

Q No?

 THE PRESIDENT: No, itís like Inspector Gadget -- you know, if you touched
it, it might blow up.

 Q I kind of envision that, itís like Q in the James Bond -- did they give you,
like, fingerprint recognition technology or something?

 THE PRESIDENT: The works. The works. It turns into a car if I have to make
a quick getaway. (Laughter.)

 Q How many people have that email address?

 THE PRESIDENT: A handful. Look, there are security issues involved, and so
weíve got to make sure that Iím not creating a situation where, you know,
potentially people can comprise our system somehow.

 Q But, like, world leaders -- can they contact you on that BlackBerry?

 THE PRESIDENT: Typically, world leaders are going to be contacting me
through the Oval Office. They know how to reach me there.

 Q Sasha and Malia?

 THE PRESIDENT: Sasha and Malia can always contact me.

 Q Oprah?

 THE PRESIDENT: Well --

 Q Maybe. Youíre not going to hook me up, are you?

 THE PRESIDENT: Matt, do you want one?

 Q No, I want your email address. (Laughter.) I want to communicate with
you during the game.

 THE PRESIDENT: I like your son, I might give it to him -- Iím not going to
give it to you. Jack, he might get one.

 Q Jack, give it to your papa, okay? (Laughter.)

President Obama is One of Many Recent Left-Handed US Presidents
US Presidents have a higher than average tendency to be left-handed. In the 2008 election campaign both John McCain
and Barack Obama ran as left-handed Presidents. In 1992 all three presidential candidates, George Bush Sr., Ross Perot,
and Bill Clinton were all left-handed candidates. Amazingly, four of the last five, and six out of the last 12 Presidents have
been left-handed. The national average is only 10%. Scientists say left-handed people have a "wider scope of thinking",
noting a disproportionately higher number of Nobel Prize winners who are left-handed.  Photos: Using his left hand, US
