Guest Cralis Posted November 13, 2008 Share Posted November 13, 2008 From bbc.co.uk, The not-so-secret code names used by the US Secret Service for the president-elect and his family have been published. Barack Obama is called Renegade, while his wife Michelle is Renaissance, and their daughters Rosebud and Radiance. The names are chosen to be easily pronounced and understood when agents use radio communications. Now, if it was for 'easily understood', doesn't 'Renaissance' sounds a lot like 'Radiance' over the radio?? I think George Bush's names were slightly better (for radio comms): 'They will replace Trailblazer (President George W Bush) and his wife Tempo in the White House on 20 January.'
