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.

Clinton fundraiser set for Blowing Rock

Bonnie, Jamie Schaefer will be the hosts at spa

BLOWING ROCK (Winston-Salem Journal) -
When invitations went out for a $2,300-a-person cocktail reception for Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday at Westglow Resort & Spa, some people wondered if it was a hoax.

“We’ve got a lot of calls from the area from people who can’t believe it and say it’s wonderful,” said Blake Zeff, a spokesman for the Clinton campaign. “Yes, it’s true.” The answer to the other question that everyone seems to have, however, is no: Bill Clinton will not be with her, according to the campaign.

The private fundraiser is being held by Westglow owners Bonnie and Jamie Schaefer at the spa a few miles from downtown Blowing Rock. Bonnie Schaefer is the former co-chief executive officer of Claire’s Stores, familiar to every parent of a young girl who visits malls and goes to Claire’s to buy inexpensive jewelry and other items.
