Code Names

It is no secret that the First Family gets their own code names nor are the code names secret (thus it begs the question of what's the point, but it is now tradition even though the names are no longer useful). Anyway, the Obamas and Bidens got their new names recently.

Barack Obama: Renegade
Michelle Obama: Renaissance
Malia Obama: Radiance
Sasha Obama: Rosebud
Joe Biden: Celtic
Jill Biden: Capri

The article I referenced also includes some past names as well. Jimmy Carter was "Deacon," while Barbara Bush was "Tranquility." Richard Nixon was "Searchlight" and Jackie Kennedy was "Lace." Harry Truman was "General," while Eisenhower (an actual general) was "Providence." Ted Kennedy (in the 1970 campaign) was "Sunburn." The article also includes a few code names for West Wing personnel, such as Zoey Bartlet who was "Bookbag." There is also a link to get your own code name, but it rather silly. It isn't any type of matching thing, but just a randon name generator.
