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.

(Winston-Salem Journal) - Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the presumptive Republican nominee for president, will speak at Wake Forest University on Tuesday, the day of the North Carolina primary.
