This is a killer story that can get us a LOT of traffic. BBC reports a story that Obama and Cheney are related. This is a breaking story, and could generate us some traffic over the next year due to the length of the elections in the U.S. Let's make our treatment the best so we can get some links from Yahoo news, blogs, etc. Common ancestor is Mareen Duvall (c1630) immigrant from France. ~ Phlox 20:32, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
