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.

Tough Talk

(Fox News) - Tuesday's exchange of insults between Vice President Cheney and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid over congressional funding of U.S. troops included a memorable line by the senator: "I'm not going to get into a name calling match with someone who has a nine percent approval rating."

But it turns out that not only is Cheney's rating much higher than nine percent in the latest Harris Interactive poll — it's actually higher than Reid's.

The vice president got a 25 percent approval mark, while the senator came in at 22 percent in the online survey.
