Cheney & Obama Related

This is a story making headlines in newspapers across the country and you'll probably be talking about it at the office today.

It seems that Vice President Dick Cheney and Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama are related.

The Vice President's wife, Lynne Cheney, made the discovery while researching the Vice President's family tree for her new book titled "Blue Skies, No Fences."

The two men are 8th cousins.

Mrs. Cheney tells MSNBC that it was, "An amazing American story that one ancestor could be responsible down the family line for lives that have taken such different and varied paths."
