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.

Board to hear protest: Davidson Board of Elections will decide whether Hege is eligible to run for re-election as sheriff

(By Wesley Young; Winston-Salem Journal) - The people trying to block former Sheriff Gerald Hege from getting back his old office yesterday won the right to have a hearing on the issue.

But the hearing won't be until three days after the May 4 primary in which Hege is running against two other Republican candidates.

Hege lost the office in 2003, after his conviction on two felony counts.
