Another socialist dynasty in Greece

"Prime Minister George Papandreou . . . a Socialist, was sworn in after his crushing election victory over the scandal-battered conservatives . . . Papandreou, a former foreign minister and scion of one of Greece’s two main political dynasties, follows in the footsteps of his father Andreas and grandfather George, who both served several terms as prime minister."

Isn't it a contradiction in terms to be a third generation dynastic socialist prime minister? Democratic socialists used to oppose dynasties and inherited power.
