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.

Impeachment Vote

(Fox News) - 32 towns in Vermont Tuesday passed resolutions calling for the impeachment of President Bush, for allegedly misleading the country about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction and for engaging in illegal wiretapping.

The symbolic votes came on Vermont's annual "Town Meeting Day" — which dates back to colonial times. Five towns passed similar measures last year.

Congressional Democrats have largely steered clear of any impeachment talk. Also on Tuesday, 16 Vermont towns passed separate measures calling for an immediate troop withdrawal from Iraq.
