Clan McCain

John McCain has some black relatives, who are "either the result of the illicit union of the McCains and the slaves that they owned, or descendants of the McCain family slaves," and they support Barack Obama.

It's often amusing when a relative doesn't support a candidate, but it's so common that it's not really useful as any sort of telling commentary. The reason I'm actually linking to the above is because, as you'll read, McCain seemingly doesn't even acknowledge that branch of his family.

Although his brother Joe does.
