Obama is a distant cousin of Bush

Hell froze over. A month of Sundays hit the calendar. Barack Obama and George W. Bush are cousins.
According to, Obama and Bush are 11th cousins, both descended from Samuel Hinckley, who lived in Massachusetts in the 17th century.
Meanwhile, Obama is also related — even more closely — to Dick Cheney. They are eighth cousins, both descended from a French Huguenot named Mareen Duvall who settled in Maryland in the 17th century.
