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 San Francisco Chronicle reports Pelosi flew aboard a 12-seat C37A — the same type of plane used regularly by former Speaker Dennis Hastert.
