The Secret Service has announced the code names allocated to each member of the Obama family.
The Obama clan now all have awesome 'nicknames' beginning with the letter R.
President-Elect Barack Obama: Renegade
Future First Lady Michelle Obama: Renaissance
Malia Obama: Radiance
Sasha Obama: Rosebud
These code names are way cooler than Eagle and Evergreen (Bill and Hillary Clinton), or Tumbler and Tempo (George W. and Laura Bush).
