Bush & Kerry related?!
    #2545530 - 04/10/04 01:34 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

How did I miss this story?

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/03/04/politics/main604163.shtml

Quote:

President George W. Bush and Sen. John Kerry are related. Well, sort of. They're ninth cousins, twice removed. So what's a little competition between family?

The two presidential contenders also share a widely known common relative, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, who is the ninth cousin of both men (the number nine is a coincidence). Twice removed from Mr. Bush, Hefner is a slightly closer relation to Kerry, only once removed.

Interesting indeed! But thats very distantly related, I must say. I would be a wee bit more closely related to Sen. John Glenn, who is my Grandmother's cousin.

That's not really all that interesting when you think about it. When you go back 9 generations, you'd be surprised how many people you're related to. If you're driving down the freeway, chances are that every fifth car or so contains someone who's your ninth cousin. This isn't a story at all.

I saw that awhile ago. There was a big chart showing many peoples relations. You'd be suprised how many famous people were related one way or another.
