Interesting about Secret Service code name for President Reagan...
Before turning to politics, Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) was a movie star in Hollywood’s Golden Age, and served two terms as President of the Screen Actor’s Guild. Between his terms, his film career faded, and he moved into the fledgling television industry, hosting “General Electric Theater”, and was later a regular on the Old West series “Death Valley Days”. Ironically, he never appeared on the "Rawhide" TV series.
By the mid-1960’s, Reagan had become fully disillusioned by Hollywood liberalism, and at the end of his acting career, he successfully ran for Governor of California as a republican. In 1980, he soundly defeated incumbent Jimmy Carter for the White House, with an even more lopsided victory over Carter’s vice-president Walter Mondale in 1984.The code name ‘Rawhide’ most likely references Reagan’s starring roles in multiple westerns, as well as his passion for horseback riding. Generally, the Secret Service gives all members of the President’s family code names beginning with the same letter. In the Reagans' case, First Lady Nancy was assigned ‘Rainbow’, while their four adult children (Maureen, Michael, Patti, and Ronald Jr.) were known as ‘Rosebud’, ‘Riddler’, ‘Ribbon’, and ‘Reliant’, respectively.
