"Elizabeth really wanted him to do that interview. She wanted him to say, you know, you've got to get out in front of it. You've got to, you know, say the truth and speak the truth. And she didn't know the truth. So it's like you can't do the interview and not speak the whole truth."
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.
