Not sure whether this is a better interview for Jon or John. Here's what the TDS site put up:
Bob Bradley is the manager of the Egypt's national soccer team. He served as the head coach of the U.S. men's national team from 2006 until 2011. Bradley began his coaching career at just 22, when he was named head coach of Ohio University. He went on to work as an assistant at UVA before returning to coach Princeton, where he played soccer in college. Bradley has coached several Major League Soccer teams, including the Chicago Fire, MetroStars and Chivas USA. His son Michael Bradley is one of the top American players in the game today.
A post at orangejuiceblog has a bit more:
Bob Bradley was the coach of Chivas, and then became the US National Team’s coach.  He led the team to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.  The USA won its group, for the first time since 1930, but did not advance to the quarter-finals.  Bradley was replaced by Huntington Beach resident Jurgen Klinsmann, a successful former German player and coach.  Bradley is currently coaching Egypt’s soccer team.   This team is on the verge of classifying for the 2014 World Cup, which is making Bradley a very popular person.  He has won the respect of Egyptians not only because of his coaching success, but also of because of his determination to stay and coach in a country in which soccer has deep political volatile overtones.
There's a 13 minute trailer out for the documentary American Pharaoh: Bob Bradley & the Egyptian Soccer Team(one of two films on the topic, it seems). Apparently it's well-regarded, but I couldn't make it past about 16 seconds (Take a look, you'll see why). Looks pretty, though.

And I'm not doing any more research on Olympia Snowe than this:

But there's also this, which should be worth the time.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
