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.
(Fox News) - After months of controversy, The College of William & Mary will return a brass cross to the school's historic Wren Chapel. The decision by a committee of alumni, students and faculty follows threats by alumni to withhold contributions — including one $12 million donation.
The cross was removed after President Gene Nichol said he wanted to make the chapel more welcoming to people of all faiths. But it will soon be back in what is called a prominent, readily visible place — inside a glass case with a plaque explaining the school's Anglican heritage.
