Since learning that Obama’s Secret Service codename is “Renegade”, I thought it would be fun to check out all such codenames going back to when it all began. Here’s a thorough list.
Some noteworthy codenames:
JFK: Lancer. A cavalry nickname for a Camelot knight.
Ronald Reagan: Rawhide. For the former cowboy actor.
George H. W. Bush: Timberwolf. The codename is so much cooler than the man.
Besides sitting presidents, the Secret Service also has codenames for presidential candidates, VPs, members of the First Family, and even noteworthy individuals that may require their services. Some more fun examples:
Ted Kennedy: Sunburn. What?
John McCain: Phoenix. Mythology meets Arizona.
Hillary Clinton: Evergreen. Had that name since her First Lady days.
Prince Charles: Unicorn. Bwa ha ha ha!
Pope John Paul II: Halo. So cool.
Frank Sinatra: Napoleon. My personal favorite.
