cousin, cousine

it turns out that dick and barak are related!

obama and cheney at a
family reunion


but could it be possible that democratic presidential candidate barack obama and vice president dick cheney share a common ancestor?
cheney's wife lynne says yes.

in an interview on msnbc tuesday afternoon, mrs. cheney said that in the course of researching her husband's genealogy for her new book, "blue skies, no fences," she discovered that the two public figures share an ancestor eight generations ago.

"think about this," mrs. cheney said. "this is such an amazing american story that one ancestor, a man that came to maryland, could be responsible down the family line for lives that have taken such different and varied paths as dick's and barack obama's."
[ed. note: apparently that man was walking on the less-sunny side of the maryland streets.]

but is blood thicker than the partisan waters of washington? apparently not.

even though obama is related to her husband, mrs. cheney said she is not supporting the illinois democrat's white house bid.
no, she'll be voting for hillary, like everyone else.
