Political Family Trees


That’s Barack Obama from one of his rallies in San Antonio before the March Primary. When he was here, he talked about his relationship with Dick Cheney (they’re distant cousins). Obama didn’t think that was cool. But have you heard who else he’s related to?

Brad Pitt! He’s also related to some other famous figures you’ve heard of, like President George W. Bush and his father, Gerald Ford, Lyndon Johnson, Harry Truman and James Madison.

We know how divisive Clinton and Obama have become, but how’s this for a little split? Hillary Clinton is actually related to Pitt’s gal, Angelina Jolie! She’s also a distant relative of Madonna, Celine Dion and (and that angry gal) Alanis Morissette.

John McCain already has some kin in the White House – he’s a distant relative of Laura Bush’s!

    Barack Obama and John McCain are the 20th cousin of Augustus Owsley Stanley III, the LSD person! No joking!
