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.

The leader of Hezbollah appeared in public today for the first time since the cease-fire with Israel. He told the Lebanese people, “I feel your pain.” You know, that’s Bill Clinton’s line.
