Lynne Cheney said she made the discovery while doing genealogical research for a book she's working on. Obama spokesman Bill Burton reacted by saying, "Obviously, Dick Cheney is sort of the black sheep of the family."

Cool. I don't have a copy of my family tree but my Aunt told me one branch goes back to the Mayflower. I have wondered if I'm distantly related to any known historical figures. Of course as blue collar as my family is I'm probably related to their servants! lol

My family is mostly farmers in South Dakota. Apparently an aunt or uncle traced our family line all the way back to someone moderately important in England and liked to talk about it. Suddenly the relative doing the genealogy stopped talking about it. The joke among the rest of my relatives was that they had found that back in England we were actually related to horse thieves.

It takes a lot for someone to up and move. They have to believe that where they are going is better. Many are running from someone or something. Sometimes it was just a political reason, but many times it was for a plain and simple legal reason.

Yup. I figure we're all related to Michael Moore, GWB, Hillary, Cheney, Algore, Jesse Jackson, George Wallace, Al Sharpton and David Duke in one way or another if we look far enough. Makes me feel....undecided.
