What the heck is a "Body Man," and why does the President have one?

President Barack Obama just had another member of his staff quit. This time, it was his long-time personal assistant, Reggie Love, to whom the President, and even the news agencies reporting the story, refer to as the President's "Body Man."

To whose body does the term refer? Is it similar to a bodyguard? If so, doesn't Obama have the Secret Service for that? Have other presidents employed someone in a similar capacity?

Just another headshaking feature of the Obama administration.

Bodyman is a long standing position in a presidents administration. The most famous example is the fictional Charlie Young from The West Wing. Here is a list of others, both real and fictional from different administrations, real and fictional:

Hardly a headshaking feature of the Obama administration.. just a regular, normal part of most administrations.

I see. And for this, Love was paid $102,000 of my tax dollars every year. It's even worse than I imagined.
