President Obama has visited this county to deliver policy addresses more than any other in his second term.<p>"Hello Maryland. It's good to see you," the president said enthusiastically in January at a Costco in Lanham, Md. "I love to get outside of the Beltway, even if it is just a few hundred feet away."<p>For many years, presidents have traveled to Prince George's County because it is the location of Joint Base Andrews, the home base of Air Force One.
