The 31st chief executive, a Republican, was the only one to write a biography of another one, Woodrow Wilson -- number 28 and a Democrat. Hoover not only was admiring in his book, but he accomplished the endeavor when he was in his eighties.

Maryland (20-1-2) will advance to the College Cup in Hoover, Ala., for the first time since 2008 when it won the national championship. The Terps will face the Georgetown Hoyas, who defeated the University of San Diego 3-1 earlier in the day to advance to the round of four.

Call it the built-in gravitas gap: President Obama flies the country in a grand 747, cruises in plush limousines adorned with American flags, and speaks from the White House Rose Garden, while his campaign opponent, Mitt Romney, flies in a smaller MD-83 passenger jet, rides in nondescript SUVs and makes speeches at factories and strip malls.
