Default DISSING COUSINS: OBAMA, CHENEY, BUSH RELATED

Who says Barack Obama doesn't have what it takes to be president? Turns out, he's a distant cousin of both Dick Cheney and George Bush.

The vice president's wife, Lynne Cheney, announced her discovery yesterday while hawking her new book, "Blue Skies, No Fences," on MSNBC.

When asked if she would support Hillary Rodham Clinton because she is a woman, Lynne Cheney said, "I have to admit to a certain bias here . . . Dick and Barack Obama are eighth cousins."

Mrs. Cheney said that it was "an amazing American story that one ancestor . . . could be responsible down the family line for lives that have taken such different and varied paths."

Then asked if she supported Obama she quickly said, "No."

Obama's camp made light of the family ties. "Every family has a black sheep," said spokeswoman Jen Psaki, with tongue firmly planted in cheek.

The Chicago Sun-Times revealed the genealogical link in early September, claiming that the shared ancestors were Mareen and Susannah Duvall, 17th century immigrants from France.

The newspaper, however, claimed that the senator from Illinois and the vice president were 11th cousins.

The Duvalls are Obama's great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparents, and Cheney's great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparents, the paper said.

George W. Bush and Obama, meanwhile, are 10th cousins once removed - linked through a 17th century Massachusetts couple, Samuel Hinckley and Sarah Soole, according to the Sun-Times.
Nope don't see Kevin Bacon in there.

Funny, Obama's distantly related to 6 ex-presidents. McCain is linked to none, except his 6th cousin Laura Bush. SO, I guess by this ruler, Obama is more qualified......That's something you should base your vote on. Really. And when I say distant, I mean barely.
It is funny though.

Actually, since Obama keeps saying that change should "Come TO Washington, not FROM Washington", than he's been dissing himself.

This makes McCain the TRUE outsider...

I read somewhere that Palin had some interesting relations as well. FDR and Princess Di. With that lineage, she should easily win over the Reagan Democrats/US Magazine reading/Soap Opera watching crowd.
