Butt boy - "(Doug) Band, 35, joined the White House as an intern in the counsel's office in 1995 and by the end of the administration was the president's personal aide, or 'butt boy,' the person responsible for making sure the president wakes up on time in the morning and stays on schedule during the day, and for peering around the corner of the president's existence 24-7, at home and on the road, to make sure he has everything he needs (lunch, tie, speech, hat, golf clubs, a handy bathroom) and avoids everything unnecessary, unwanted, and undesirable (you get the drift)." From "The Comeback Id," an article about Bill Clinton by Todd S. Purdum, Vanity Fair, July 2008, Page 80.
