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.

Charles Krauthammer: "Daily Show" Appearance "Diminishes" Obama

Dr. Charles Krauthammer: "One of the principle rules of governance is that when you are prince, you are the ruler. You should be husbanding your aura and be doling it out in small doses. This is particularly important for a man like Obama who rose to the presidency from charisma, particularly on that aura, it wasn't on his record. It wasn't on his achievements on his past, it was his persona. I don't think this diminishes the office, but it diminishes the man that is now holding the office."
