From the WTF file, Dick Cheney's wife claims the VP and Barrack Obama are related.
When MSNBC's Norah O'Donnell asked Cheney whether she thought America was ready for a woman president, she dropped this bomb:
One of the things I discovered was that Dick and Barack Obama are eighth cousins. Is that an amazing thing? If you go back eight generations, we have a common ancestor.
So, could this possibly be true or are the Cheney's being extra clever in their smear tactics?
