take this one step farther

and see if any of the presidents wives
were related to them before marriage
my money is on this as a fact

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

so someone's had genes from perhaps 10,000 commoners

and one from royalty.. perhaps that's one way to look at it. i am not one, but even to fascistic people that should be pretty ridiculous to distinguish from someone else with pure 10,000 commoner genes and claim there's any marginal difference


That's not surprising. All of our Presidents have been European in ancestry (even Obama is half white). A lot of them have been at least part English, especially the early ones. Many people are related to King John, including me. That was a thousand years ago!

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

Oh come on. EVERYONE is related to King John.

Oh come on. EVERYONE is related to King John twelve times over. That's right. Check your family tree back to 1216, and you'll find Johnny boy's sixteen or twenty of your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfathers.

And Mad Jacques, the maddest madman in the village of Maddes-sur-Maddon in France, is your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather in firty six places AND your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-granduncle in eleven.

And I don't care if you're ethnic Chinese. Yuo know how those genes liked to travel in Mongol veins!

the next step

is to show how many people that ran for president but lost are related to the same person as the presidents. my guess its not going to be close to all of them..

That would indeed be an interesting part of the project.

There is no control in the above to determine whether or not this is likely for any group of people, and how far back is required to link a random group of people, etc.

But if you could prove that the non-winners were not tied to one another or the winners in any way, while not a control, would be extremely interesting.
