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.

John Edwards' North Carolina Campaign Headquarters Evacuated After White Powder Found

Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards' campaign headquarters in North Carolina was evacuated after a staff member opened a letter containing white powder, a campaign official said.

"The health and safety of our staff and volunteers is obviously our paramount concern, so we contacted the authorities," Jonathan Prince, deputy campaign manager said after the evacuation Wednesday. "The authorities have asked us to evacuate while they run tests on the substance, and we have done so."

Edwards tries desperately to keep his name in the news.
