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.

McCain launches White House bid

(BBC) The US Senator, John McCain, has announced that he will officially enter the race to be the Republican candidate for the presidency in 2008.

Mr McCain confirmed the news in a TV interview, to be shown on Thursday.

He formed an exploratory committee last November and since then has been making public appearances throughout the US.

But in recent weeks the former mayor of New York, Rudolph Giuliani, has widened his lead as the favourite candidate among Republicans.

...A Vietnam veteran, Mr McCain served five years as a prisoner of war, after being shot down as a Navy pilot in 1967.

I am sure this announcement was greeted with shouts of joy from atleast 3 or 4 "Conservatives". The real question here is whether McCain will run as an Independent when he fails to get the Republican nomination.

Well, and the other question will be who does he blame when he loses? Last time it was Evangelical Christians. I guess it will be their fault again.
