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.

Edwards carries political messages toward '08

The WSJ knows that touting Hillary is a lost cause in NC. The only hope for the Democratic Party is our hometown boy, Mr. John Edwards!

John Edwards might not be in the U.S. Senate anymore, but he's still a politician. Edwards, the one-term Democratic senator from North Carolina, and 2004 Democratic nominee for vice president, spoke yesterday at the National Press Club about his signature issue - poverty.
...a recent poll by the Des Moines Register ranked Edwards as the favorite in Iowa, even ahead of Clinton. Cook said that this puts Edwards in a good place to compete against Clinton and was probably the best possible news Edwards could have hoped for.


The official Democratic Party sales pitch: The lesser of two evils, perhaps? 'Anybody But Hillary'? Go, John! Go!

I’ve been watching this guy on dspan today. Look-his pollyanna views on poverty is enough to make him dangerous. And he seems to be missing the point about unions. They’re partly to blame for walmart and and other importers of cheap foreign goods where we all know what conditions they were produced under. Frankly this guy is 1/4 baked.
