As far as I can tell, this is the recent news out of Iraq:
Yesterday: "Six U.S. Servicemen Die in Iraq Violence."
Wednesday: "Surge of Violence Leaves 52 Dead in Iraq."
Monday: "Iraq-Bombing Update: Additional Bombings, Death Toll 10."
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.
