    Harry S Truman was easy for me. Just read bio.

    Just watched the show. Good game…albeit baffled by the ts on Brazil & coffee connection.

    I see why Alan wrote Eisenhower. Looks awfully young even though he’s an Engineer. He might be on Jeopardy a long time based on his quickness & breadth of knowledge.

    Congrats Alan. Keep going.

      @Jacob, I’m guessing they were thinking some kind of beer for brew, even though the clue had “hot” in it. As we students of slang know, hot can mean cool. LOL!!

      I’m thinking the same thing that Alan might be the one. Kudos to Emma though. She gave it her all and was keeping up with him pretty good till he got that $5K DD.

      After watching the Howdies, I’m gonna be rooting for Meike tomorrow. Just loved the little fist bump she gave in her intro. Go Meike!

    Congrats to Alan on his big win. Let’s see if he can keep it going. How long did Truman’s presidency last? I somehow got the answer to today’s final jeopardy. Also, who was Emma thinking of in her response?

      @Lou, if you click on the link in the recap to his life before the presidency, there is a link on the top right to pictures of all the presidents and their terms. Truman’s first term began when FDR died in April 1945. He won the next election and stayed in office till 1953

    I was off by one president. All I could think of was FDR. My only excuse is that I am Canadian.

    OMG. Eisenhower was a 5-star General in the military AND President of Columbia University. No one could do that in the 20th century w/o a college degree.

    Btw, I think Wilson was the only U. S. President to hold a doctorate degree since the fj clue focuses on U. S. Presidents and college degrees.

      I linked to the wiki article on the West Point Class of 1915 just in case they ever have a clue about Omar Bradley and Eisenhower graduating in the same class (I checked and didn’t find one). The article says Bradley was No. 44 in the class and Ike was No. 61. Cool stuff to know.
