Bill Clinton's Email

Bill Clinton's Email

Bill Clinton was President of the United States of America from 1992 to 2000.  It was during his two terms that the Internet came of age and email became a common means of communication amongst his citizens.  Today, less than four years after Clinton left office, everyone and their grandmother has an email account and is on the web.

With this in mind, how many emails would you guess Bill Clinton sent while in office?  No less than 40,000 emails sent by Bill and his staff are being archived at the Bill Clinton presidential library, but how many did he actually send?  The answer is two.  One was a test to see if Bubba knew how to send an email and another was an email to John Glenn when he was part of the space shuttle crew orbiting the earth praising his return to space after almost 40 years.

I found this little fact fascinating.  Bill Clinton managed to lead America for eight years and in all that time only sent two emails.  That is, of course, assuming he didn't have a Yahoo! or Hotmail account for more personal exchanges.
