Hi, Dave,
try this:

 Cos[\[Theta]/2]^2, {\[Theta], 0, \[Pi]}, {\[CurlyPhi], 0, 2 \[Pi]}, 
 ViewPoint -> {1, 0, -2}]

Have fun, Alexei

I'm new to Mathematica, sorry.  I would like to draw a cardioid
rotated about its polar axis.  I checked the Mathematica wiki and it
did not cover this topic (that I could find).  Can someone help me to
understand how to do this in Mathematica?
