Rahm Emanuel's Secret Service Name Is "Black Hawk"

Rahm Emanuel's secret service code name is "Black Hawk," but, according to many online, "Silver Fox" -- sorry Anderson -- might be a better fit. From TheAtlantic:

"The Secret Service allows its protectees to choose the code name used by its agents, but Rahm's was assigned to him during the Democratic National Convention, and he decided not to change it.

"All other code names are assigned by the White House Military Office (through the White House Communications Agency."

Animal contrasts abound with Rahm. "Mr. Emanuel's slight build and basset hound eyes belie the 'Rahmbo' moniker that aggressive tactics have earned him over the years," wrote Jason L. Riley in a WSJ profile last November.
