    WASHINGTON (CNN) – Go back far enough, the saying goes, and everyone's related.

    But could it be possible that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and Vice President Dick Cheney share a common ancestor?

    Cheney's wife Lynne says yes.

    In an interview on MSNBC Tuesday afternoon, Mrs. Cheney said that in the course of researching her husband's genealogy for her new book, "Blue Skies, No Fences," she discovered that the two public figures share an ancestor eight generations ago.

    More proof that politics is a genetic disease that needs to be attacked, treated and cured. Gene therapy might be needed in some cases. It leaves families devastated, promises unfulfilled and treasuries in default.
