Shaking the (Family) Tree

This is why I love the information age:

This could make for one odd family reunion: Barack Obama is a distant cousin of actor Brad Pitt, and Hillary Rodham Clinton is related to Pitt's girlfriend, Angelina Jolie.

Kudos to the AP for digging up one of the least consequential, yet more interesting, tidbits to come out of this year's historic Democratic primary. More good stuff to come, I hope.
