CONCORD, New Hampshire (CNN) – After filing for the New Hampshire primary Monday, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, addressed a large crowd at a rally outside the statehouse. There, he criticized the Bush administration, while highlighting genealogical ties to 'cousin,' Vice President Dick Cheney.
Last week, in an interview with MSNBC, Lynn Cheney said that her husband and Obama shared an ancestor from eight generations ago.
"Let's face it. All across America people are tired of George Bush. They are tired of this administration. They are tired of my 'cousin' Dick Cheney. We had been keeping this under raps. Everybody's got a black sheep in the family," Obama said.
