Obama & Clinton dig for celebrity help

U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama and actor Brad Pitt are related. And Democratic rival Hillary Clinton is related to Brad Pitt's wife Angelina Jolie.

The New England Historic Genealogical Society also found Obama shares a family tree with the likes of Winston Churchill, Harry Truman and perhaps most worryingly for him – George W Bush.

Whilst Hillary is distantly linked to Diva's Madonna and Celine Dion.
