 Do you know the Secret Service nick names for the First Family?
As government trivia goes, few tidbits are as fun to know and share as the code names the Secret Service issues to those whom it protects. Barack Obama received his handle "Renegade" back in June when he won the Democratic nomination. Now the rest of the soon-to-be First Family have received theirs. Mr. Obama's wife, Michelle, is "Renaissance." His 10-year-old daughter, Malia, is "Radiance." Seven-year-old Sasha is "Rosebud." Meanwhile, Vice-President Elect Joe Biden is "Celtic," while his wife, Jill, is "Capri."
The names are chosen by military officials, who warn people not to read too much into them. That said, code names don't always seem to be completely random. Former President Jimmy Carter, who taught Sunday school, is "Deacon." Ronald Reagan, the one-time cowboy movie star, was "Rawhide." George W. Bush, who received a code name when his father ("Timberwolf") was president, was called "Tumbler," which some might think a reflection on his then-reputation as a carouser. Vice President Dick Cheney, who loves to fish, is "Angler." Bill Clinton is "Eagle."
Like all of us, even code name assigners seem to find it hard work keeping up with kids. Amy Carter was "Dynamo." Michael Reagan: "Riddler." Chelsea Clinton: "Energy." Jenna Bush, on the other hand, was "Twinkle" while sister Barbara was "Tranquility."
There's also a roster of candidates and protectees whose names were unfortunate or just bizarre. Al Gore, known to be a bit inexpressive, was initially "Sawhorse," although evolved (perhaps he complained?) into "Sundance." John Kerry was "Minuteman." Hillary Clinton is "Evergreen." Nancy Reagan? "Rainbow." And one of my all-time favorites: Ted Kennedy -- "Sunburn."
