POTUS Guilty of Nepotism?

Finally we have an explanation why President Bush chose Cheney as his running mate. It's all because of family history.

[Mike Ward of Ancestry.com] added that President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney are connected through an early New England settler by the name of William Fletcher.

Fletcher, incidentally, was also involved in politics. He served as Commissioner of Chelmsford, Mass., in 1673. [Link]

Gee, if I had known that descendants of William Fletcher could be part of the administration and start wars and hide government secrets, I would have applied for a job with GWB and RC.

Of course, I'm like 10th cousins through this line with them.

Cheers -- Randy

I'm descended from Fletchers too, but not from the ones in Chelmsford. Reason Number 2,384 why George Bush would never hire me.
