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.

WIRE: Gore and his team were seen driving the 500 metres or so from hotel to the Cannes festival headquarters in several cars...

CANNES, France (Reuters) - A representative affiliated with "An Inconvenient Truth", a film about global warming involving former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, has stressed that the movie and Gore's tour to promote it are "carbon neutral".

Last week, Gore and his team were seen driving the 500 metres or so from a hotel to the Cannes festival headquarters in several cars. The representative said that arriving at events like photocalls and news conferences in cars was normal practice in Cannes. And Gore walked the shorter distance from another hotel to the festival for the movie's screening.

Andy,

The Drudge Report posted a follow up on this story a few hours later. Don't you think that it should be on the BP too, for your readers to compare?

This was actually a follow-up to the thinkprogress.org follow-up... I hope that makes sense.
