25. In 50 years when an Obama relative dies, people will still care

There are certain leaders who make an impression that lasts for generations. John F. Kennedy did - before he became president his family had also made a huge impression on this country. The murders of two of the family that had reached powerful political positions in public set those impressions permanently in the nation's psyche.

The Roosevelts had the same legacy - without the murders. Even today the deaths of Roosevelt kin (or Cleveland, or kin of most US Presidents) makes the news.

I think the Obama family will be the same - Sasha and Malia lives will be news, as will their children, even if they do not become leaders like their father. I hope the people of this country will be interested in news of the Obama family a hundred years for now.
