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.

Clinton Supporters

Fox News

Some of Hollywood's heavy-hitters who have traditionally supported the Clintons are lining up behind the person who could be their choice for president in 2008 — Barack Obama. ABC's Web site reports movie moguls Steven Spielberg, David Geffen, and Jeffrey Katzenberg are throwing a $2,300/person fundraiser for Obama next month.

Couples who commit to raising $46,000 for the evening will also be invited to a private dinner with Obama at Geffen's Malibu home. The list of show business celebrities supporting Obama already includes past Clinton supporters George Clooney, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Oliver Stone.
