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.

Necessary Retreat

"I can't say I agree with Charles that this was a necessary retreat. You don't retreat when you're winning. This was bowing to a political expediency, no more, no less."

I don't believe this was "bowing to a political expendiency." I believe Ariel Sharon made a strategic move. Charles wrote a good column last week on this titled Israeli withdrawal is correct and necessary. Charles makes very good points in this column.
