How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Check Out Secret Service’s Most Telling Code Names

The Secret Service has come up with some interesting code names of the people they are paid to protect.

Here is a partial list compiled by Vanity Fair:

Roger Clinton: The half-brother of President Bill Clinton, notorious for his attempts at influence-peddling and a conviction for cocaine use, got the nickname “Headache” for obvious reasons. “I don’t have a choice of being first brother,” he recently told The New York Times.

Senator Ted Kennedy: Back when the late Lion of the Senate was but a wee brother of the president, his pale Irish complexion didn’t mix well with the summers playing flag football in Hyannis Port, or his penchant for drinking. Hence, the name “Sunburn.”

Dick Cheney: The former vice president usually went by “Angler,” both for his love of fly fishing and his tendency to take favorable angles on things like invading Iraq. (He was also known as “Backseat,” because really, he was the ultimate backseat driver.)

George W. Bush: Speaking of invading Iraq, Bush’s code name was “Tumbler,” assigned to him back when he was just the son of George H.W. Bush. (Bush had a notorious drinking problem while his father was vice president, making the code name especially cruel if it wasn’t randomly assigned.) When he became president, he changed it to “Trailbazer,” which is more manly and sounds less like women’s gymnastics.
