W - The Prez or George II?

Did you know that President George W. Bush is kin to 15 17 previous presidents? Check out Wikipedia for more details. I also found it of interest that he is a distant cousin of John Kerry (9th, twice removed).

I'm not a conspiracy theorist. I do believe that there are a lot of political alliances that keep certain families in the ruling class in power. I think that can be safely stated as fact. Yes, public opinion ultimately decides the distinct 'who' in an election. However, public opinion can be swayed with enough money and clout.
