    Default Clinton's gift to Internet age: two e-mails

    Fun Fact: Number of E-mails Bill Clinton sent through his entire presidency: Two.
    Fun Fact II: One was a test to see if he knew what he was doing
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The archives of the Bill Clinton presidential library will contain almost 40 million e-mails by the former US president's staff and two by the man himself.

    Skip Rutherford, president of the Clinton Presidential Foundation, which is raising money for the library, says the e-mails are "the only two [Mr Clinton] sent".

    One of them hardly qualifies for electronic communication because it was a test to see if the commander in chief knew how to push the button to send an e-mail.

    Former Ohio senator John Glenn has the distinction of being the first American to orbit the earth and the only person to receive an e-mail written by Clinton when he was in office.

    The e-mail was sent with the help of Clinton staff members to the space shuttle while it was in orbit and Glenn was a part of the crew.

    It praised Glenn for his return to space after almost 40 years.

    Mr Rutherford says Mr Clinton, who relished the chance to speak to voters, did not make time to send e-mails, even though Internet usage exploded during his presidency.

    "He's not a techno-klutz. I don't think President [George W] Bush sends e-mails, either," Mr Rutherford said of Mr Clinton.

    "Most of the decisions in the Oval Office are made through decision memos," Mr Rutherford said.

    The 40 million e-mails of the Clinton administration are almost exclusively comprised of memos, notes and correspondence among his aides and cabinet members.

    Then as now, Mr Rutherford added, Mr Clinton was more apt to write personal notes or telephone than communicate through e-mail.
