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.

Arthur Branches Out

Is Fred Thompson Reagan reincarnated? Or at least a candidate for the slot?

By Kathryn Jean Lopez
National Review Online

“Is Fred Thompson the next Ronald Reagan?” Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked at the top of his show two weekends ago. The question echoed what I’d been hearing for days from National Review Online readers and in conservative circles. (“Ask What Would Reagan Do?” and the survey [that is, my inbox] says Elect Thompson!)

Wisely and humbly the 64-year-old former Tennessee senator dismissed the Reagan comparison as unwarranted. But Thompson didn’t rule out a run for the Republican nomination, saying he is “going to leave the door open.”
