I found out recently from a cousin of mine who used to be a professional genealogist that I’m distantly related to George H.W. Bush and, by some huge cosmic joke, to his son, Dubya.
I told my cousin how ironic it all was, given my political persuasion, and said I would much rather be related to President Obama instead.
Upon hearing that, she laughed and said that could be a real possibility too, since Obama’s mother was born in the same county in Kansas as my father.
There’s always hope…
