I wonder why the Andrews controllers didn't send the C-17 around and let the C-40 land? Clearly the C-40 would have a higher priority and Andrews tower knew the First Lady was on board. Maybe the C-17 was already on the ground and the C-40 on three mile final? Not enought time to let the C-17 clear the runway?

Because protocol is for the lower/lead aircraft have priority of the runway.

It seems odd to me having transited Andrews numerous times that the C-17 is allowed to continue while Exec1Foxtrot has to do a pattern.
