Administrator Accounts and Protecting their Status

I have Windows 7 Premium.

Is there any way I can make it so that If any Administrator Account wants to change any other Administrator Account into a User Account, It requires the Password of the target account to do so?

For Example, lets say there is an Admin Account named "ADMIN" and a second Admin Account named "BOB".
I want to make it so if ADMIN wants to change BOB into a User account, I must enter in the password for the BOB account before I am allowed to do so.

Right now, Windows just does this all blindly, and without regard to whether the account type change is even voluntary or not.

I hope I am being clear. I also hope this is the right place, should be.
If you need more info on my system specs, please ask and state why.

Read up on Group Policies, I'm sure there's something in there to define all of that.

Tho, users shouldn't need an admin account for daily usage anyway.
Yeah, with any OS, don't give users any admin privs if you don't want them to be able to do things like changing passwords.
If you don't trust someone with admin privileges, don't give them admin privileges.
