Barack Obama Is A Distant Relative Of General Robert E. Lee

Researchers at the New England Historic Genealogical Society did a study on the three candidates for President, and there are some very interesting findings. Among them:

Obama has a prolific presidential lineage that features Democrats and Republicans. His distant cousins include President George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, Gerald Ford, Lyndon Johnson, Harry S. Truman and James Madison. Other Obama cousins include Vice President Dick Cheney, British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill and Civil War General Robert E. Lee, and he's also related to Brad Pitt. I'll give him credit, that's a pretty impressive blood line...

Clinton, who is of French-Canadian descent on her mother's side, is a distant cousin of singers Madonna, Celine Dion and Alanis Morissette and actress Angelina Jolie. She's also
distant cousins with beatnik author Jack Kerouac and Camilla Parker-Bowles, wife of Prince Charles of England.

McCain, whose lineage was harder to trace because of poor record-keeping is a sixth cousin of first lady Laura Bush.
