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.

Temporary transit center relocation would accommodate DNC in 2012

CHARLOTTE, NC (By STEVE HARRISON, Charlotte Observer) - The Charlotte Area Transit System said it's gotten a "strong indication" that the main bus station uptown will have to be moved because of the 2012 Democratic National Convention, and officials have started planning where they can create a temporary transit center.

CATS chief executive Carolyn Flowers, speaking at a luncheon Wednesday, said the transit system hasn't heard officially from the local host committee about the size of the security perimeter around Time Warner Cable Arena, where President Barack Obama is expected to be renominated. But because the transit center is across Trade Street from the arena, CATS probably will have to pack up.

"We're having internal discussions (about where to move)," said Olaf Kinard, director of marketing and communications for CATS. "It's preliminary."
