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.

One for the end of the road? Merry Clinton knocks back whisky on campaign plane

(Daily Mail) - Hillary Clinton took time out from her punishing campaign schedule to enjoy a glass of whiskey with a group of journalists.

The Democratic presidential hopeful was flying back from Rapid City in South Dakota, one of the few states yet to hold its primary when she decided to let her hair down a little.

Her relaxed mood may give rise to speculation she is preparing to concede to her Democratic rival Barak Obama.

I haven't seen a candidate drink so much alcohol out on the campaign trail before. Hillary's turning into an alcoholic. Ha!

Actually, she's probably just releasing all her drinking photos, not really drinking more. My take is that she's really trying to connect better w/ men, trying to be 'Willie's cool old lady who'll catch a buzz with you.' However, if she is drinking more, I can understand. Things can't be great in the Clinton campaign camp.
