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.

Video: L'Enfant Plaza Escalator Malfunction in DC

Riders hurt after Stewart/Colbert rally in Oct.

Surveillance video has been released by Metro of an escalator malfunction at the L'Enfant Plaza Metro Station.

The crowds attending the John Stewart and Stephen Colbert event on the National Mall, Oct. 30th, were huge.

In fact, it was the biggest Saturday rider ship in Metro-rail history.

There are three escalators at the L'Enfant Promenade entrance to Metro.

The middle one and the right one were taking people downward that day.

A security camera at the bottom captured these images.
