I found an interesting article last night on msn.com and I wanted to share. As you probably know, the Secret Service has code names for almost everyone they deal with. U.S. presidents, first ladies, and even locations are given code names. It started out mainly for security reasons, but with communications today, names can be encrypted. So now the code names serve a purpose of brevity, clarity, and tradition. The Secret Service actually doesn't assign the code names. The White House Communications Agency does. With some of the names they come up with, it's obvious they have a sense of humor and are normally spot-on. Could there be a more fitting code name for President Reagan than "Rawhide?" More after the jump.
