1. That’s “Mr. Renegade” to You
Throughout American history, American presidents, first ladies and any children of the first couple have enjoyed a variety of nicknames, which are given to them by the Secret Service.
Some great ones from years’ past: Jacqueline and John Kennedy were known as a Lace and Lancelot, respectively. Jimmy Carter was a devout, churchgoing man during his presidency, and continued to teach Bible classes even while he was in office; he was referred to as “Deacon.”
Regarding the Obama family, President Obama is Renegade, Michelle Obama is Renaissance, Malia is Radiance and Sasha is Rosebud. Nothing like busting out a little reference to Orson Welles and Citizen Kane!? Kudos to the Secret Service.
We’re hoping Barack Obama will write a little something about being the “Renegade” when he has completed his second term as president.
