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.

Out of Line

(Fox News) - TIME Magazine columnist Joe Klein is taking Hillary and Bill Clinton to task over what he calls their creaky, transparent, out-of-date and distasteful actions toward Barack Obama — and he says they learned that behavior from the Bush family.

Klein writes on TIME Magazine's Web site that the entire Democratic Party is sick of what he called "games-playing" and "sewage" by the Clintons. He calls Obama's win in South Carolina a "wholesale rejection of Bill Clinton."

Klein adds that Obama believes — "the entire country is tired of the pestilence of tactical tricks that the Clintons learned from their co-dynasts, the Bushes."
