    Isn't it incredible just how many sons of famous, powerful and/or rich men end up being such assholes, especially in comparison to their dads? E.g. Bush, Graham, Romney, Quayle, Paul, McCain. I left out many, I'm sure.

    At least, when it comes to conservative men. There are examples of decent sons, e.g. Biden, Cuomo, Brown. Hmm, something to do with their ideology, maybe?

    Also, no women that I can think of. I think that women who go into politics tend to be more their own person and less in need of proving something or outdoing their parents. Healthier egos there, I suspect.

      following in their politician parents' footsteps -- a few of the Kennedys, perhaps, but not too many others. We might have to wait a generation or two to see how the family trees bear fruit in that regard.
