Finally, the dynasties of Bush, Cheney, McCain, and Clinton will no longer hold office starting in 2023. The main reason for the shift away from these families who served collectively since the 1970s, can be attributed to Donald Trump.
The final family to fall was the Cheneys. Tuesday night Liz Cheney was blown out in the Wyoming Republican congressional primary.
As news of Liz Cheney’s defeat spread rapidly on Tuesday night, people immediately took notice of this new trend in American politics.
When Liz Cheney is sent packing tonight by Wyoming’s voters, it will be the first time in over a hundred years we will no longer have any Bush’s, McCain’s, Cheney’s or Clinton’s in office!

Everyone is rightly noting that Trump ended the Bush, Clinton, and Cheney dynasties. Very true.
He also ended Paul Ryan's political career.
And a very Trumpian forerunner, David Brat, ended Eric Cantor.
Wins across the board.

In Texas, many in the GOP establishment thought George P. Bush would be the next to climb the political ranks.
But, with the Bush family’s relentless attack on former President Trump, George P. did not get any support for the “Donald”, thus he lost his state land commissioner seat.
Bush earlier this year also lost to Ken Paxton in the Texas Attorney General race.
The Texas Tribune reported in May:
His ubiquitous name recognition is emerging as a liability in the Republican party. George P. Bush, who currently serves as the state’s land commissioner, is trailing Paxton in polls. Some of the top reasons Republican voters are reluctant about him are his ties to his family’s center-right political leanings and his own past policy positions.
Bush said those attacks are led by Paxton and don’t reflect the support he has seen on the campaign trail. The sitting attorney general’s ads against Bush focus on labeling him a RINO — Republican in name only — and linking him to his famous family.
The late Republican Maverick Arizona Sen. John McCain died in 2018. Even though his widow, Cindy McCain, has been working the political sidelines, her opposition to Donald Trump at every turn has pretty much ended any chance of the McCain dynasty continuing.
The Democrats have tried to groom the former first daughter, of the crooked Clintons, for a run at higher office. In spite of their efforts, Chelsea Clinton has not gained much traction and most likely will not be able to follow in her father and mother’s political footsteps.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has hinted at a possible 2024 run but has said nothing conclusive about her future plans.
While the Obamas have certainly made their presence known in the cultural sphere through their production company Higher Grounds, former first lady Michelle Obama has given no indication of ever running for office despite Democrats’ highest hopes.
These dynasties are not popular with the younger democrats, they all carry a huge amount of baggage and with Trump’s steady support, are finally being put to pasture for good.
