Now in reference to "Beancutter"'s comment;
Of course not every incumbent president or political candidate is related to his predecessor. The point being made is that because wealth and politics are inextricably intertwined the system tends to favor a form of oligarchy. Business elites also form the class of political elites, who in turn seek to shape policy at the behest of business. Keeping power and wealth familial allows for its continuance; keepin' it in the family. Lets see some examples; Bush I and II, Franklin Roosevelt and Frankling delano Roosevelt, the Kennedy family, the Clintons etc.
