Does anyone really care about this?

And if they do, why? Check out this story from the Baltimore Sun
So his Great-great-great-great-grandfather and his great-great-great-great-great-grandmother on his mother's side owned slaves...is there any relevane to life in 2007 to any of this? Just so you know I feel the same way about stories about Mitt Romney's grandfather being a polygamist. I mean we're talking about people long dead relatives. Here's the thing, do you think of we elect Romney he's going to legalize Polygamy? Is Obama going to legalize slavery? At least if they're going to waste their time digging into the past can they do it relative to the candidate and not some relative who's pushing up daisies?

I don't get that, either. but, I don't really understand why people are spending more time trying to figure out how "black" Obama is in the first place, so I can't get past that to go all the way back to somebody's distant relatives.
