According to a post on Slashdot:
Every single elected president - INCLUDING Barack Obama, has a genealogy related to President George Washington.
Note I did say Elected President. Gerald Ford is (as of yet), not known to be related to George Washington.
Barck Obama is George Washington's 9th cousin, 6 times removed. Yes, this is through his white mother.
From what I can tell, the least connected elected President was Martin Van Buren - 17th cousin thrice removed.
Also, President William Henry Harrison was related by marraige, not by blood.

This seems to be a rather extraordinary claim.
I'm skeptical of whether this is in fact an extraordinary event. If it is indeed extraordinary I am skeptical of the source.
The claim may not be particularly extraordinary if many or most of American descent are related to George Washington. Are American presidents more related to George Washington than Americans in general? What about the American population as a whole?
In any case, does the source adequately support the conclusion?
