Years ago, we all remember Bill Clinton being the cool candidate as the saxophone playing Elvis fan, and since then more and more contenders are looking towards the King to help them reach their goals for the Whitehouse. Songs like A Little Less Conversation have been blasted around the USA and we’ve seen our fair share of catchphrases such as ‘Thankyouverymuch.’
Now Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson is using his family influences to reach the White House. That’s right, his father Fletcher Thompson shared the same great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandparents.
Previous President Jimmy Carter is also related to Elvis as well. Apparently, they both share a 17th Century German ancestor which makes them 6th cousins once removed and Democrat chairman Howard Dean is also a 10th cousin with Elvis Presley.
