    " We all have millions of cousins "

    Palin is linked to a princess and a popular democratic president - Roosevelt - in the meanwhile Obama is linked to a superficial superstar and a republican vice president - Cheney.

    Royalty is in her roots to contrast her folksy image , Roosevelt for a genuine tendency to serve the people ... all the while Obama is superficial and a Republican - who many blame for the current economic crisis.

    Palin has presidency in her roots while Obama has vice presidency in his roots.

    I'm not declaring anything here. Is this article biased towards Palin , could it be that they deliberately mentioned these four particular people when they could have picked others? Again

    " We all have millions of cousins ".

    You don't suppose that the Mormons who run the geneology site might have any bias...?

    Just goes to show that you can't beat the old Urim and Thummim.
