Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

In poverty fight, Edwards must risk ticking off the left

From The Des Moines Register:

John Edwards will soon face a dilemma.

The former North Carolina senator and Democratic vice-presidential candidate has started an anti-poverty center and think tank. He's also running for president again in 2008.

The dilemma facing him is this: Can he stand up to Democratic constituency groups and tell them things they may not want to hear about fighting poverty while still courting them in another bid for the White House?
