Most Forced Campaign Analysis Of The Day, Or Ever

From Mark Leibovich's A1 Hillary dispatch in the New York Times:

Mrs. Clinton’s [emails] are spare (“yes, let’s do it.”), uncluttered with jokes,
emoticons or out-of-nowhere “whassups.” She carries a BlackBerry, on
vibrate, in her purse.

I get it -- Hillary is efficient, but in a slightly sinister way, as if she doesn't care for (or doesn't understand -- like a robot!) the human-to-human pleasantries of regular life. But are John Edwards's emails cluttered with jokes, emoticons, or out-of-nowhere "whassups"? Does Obama leave his BlackBerry at home? Is it supposed to be meaningful that Hillary's BlackBerry is on vibrate?
