Obama, Bush, and Cheney Cousins
In an interview with MSNBC’s Norah O’Donnell this afternoon, Lynne Cheney revealed that while researching the Cheney family tree for her new book “Blue Skies, No Fences,” she discovered that the Vice President Cheney and Barack Obama are related — albeit distantly. According to Mrs. Cheney, the two politicians are eighth cousins.
MSNBC’s Adam Verdugo has also dug up a little publicized story from the Chicago Sun-Times reporting that Obama and Bush are 11th cousins, making him 10th cousins once removed with former President George H.W. Bush.
Thus far, no creative Patty Duke allusions.
