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.

Neighborhood Watch

(Fox News) - Some people who own businesses near the national campaign headquarters of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards say they are fed up following last week's bomb scare at the office near downtown Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

A box that turned out to be full of ticking watches brought out the bomb squad and shut down commerce for three hours. One restaurant manager says it cost him $1,000 in business — and a dental office had to reschedule appointments worth around $20,000. It's the third time they've had a bomb or poison scare at the location.

And by the way — neighbors say the Edwards people hog the parking spots and are not all that friendly. An Edwards spokeswoman says the campaign might change how and where the office gets its mail.
