You didn't think Barack Obama and Scarlett Johansson were the only presidential-candidate-and-booby-blonde-starlet duo exchanging electronic correspondence these days, did you? How naïve! John McCain and Hills star Heidi Montag have been keeping up a steady stream of BlackBerry messages and late-night e-mails for months. Luckily, we've nabbed a few of these conversations and reproduced them for you below. They include some surprises!

Heidi, I'm sorry it's taken me a while to respond to your latest e-mail. I take it you and Spencer have resolved your differences? That's at least what I've seen on TV. I don't like the way that the producers choose to focus on all the drama with your friends, instead of all of the intelligent, thoughtful ideas you have running around inside your head.

I hear that you and Spencer are engaged. That's great, if that's the right step you want to take right now. What will you be doing for the summer?

I do like movies, as a matter of fact. The most recent ones I saw were "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters From Iwo Jima." I liked the first one but the second one was junk. I also enjoy Legally Blonde 2: Red White and Blonde. My daughter got me into it. Speaking of whom, I just bought her the zebra top from your new clothing line. She loved it. Thank you for the recommendation!

Hello Heidi. I changed the subject of this e-mail chain because my assistant said it was unseemly. He doesn't think I should be e-mailing with you at all, but I said it would make me seem hip.

As for my son, I can't send you a picture because he sometimes serves overseas and it's not safe to have his face floating around. Anyway, aren't you engaged to Spencer? You shouldn't be looking at other boys.
