  • I have met Obama very plastic and fake. I am a very far removed relative too.

  • Sorry about your luck.

  • One way or another everyone is related. I wouldn't try to meet him. He probably gets this all the time. Not trying to rain on your parade, I know it's exciting. If I could trace my heritage I would.

  • No offense, but a lot of people are related to him. About 1/3 of all the presidents we've had are related, and he's in that group - which also includes the Bushes (and even Kerry, who ran against GW Bush). If nothing else, it ups the odds one of your kids may be elected someday.

  • Your relation is so far removed that there is barely any relation to speak of. I am supposedly related to President James Garfield, and the outlaw Jesse James.

  • I wouldn't get my hopes up to meet anyone unless I found out I was closer than a 4th cousin. That being said, how did you discover you were related? Sounds pretty neat and exciting though!
