Obama and Cheney are Cousins

Was going through my RSS feeds when I came across this interesting piece where US Vice president, Dick Cheney’s wife says that Cheney is the 8th cousin of Barack Obama. That translates into this:

The Duvalls are Mr Obama’s great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparents, and the vice-president’s great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparents.

That’s awesome. And if we further trace the lineage, there’s every chance that Cheney is related in some way or the other to Sonia Gandhi.

Read the full piece here.
