Doris kearns goodwin the power of teddy roosevelt s bully pulpit
A bully pulpit is a conspicuous position that provides an opportunity to speak out and be listened to. This term was coined by President Theodore Roosevelt, who referred to the White House as a "bully pulpit", by which he meant a terrific platform from which to advocate an agenda. Roosevelt used the word bully as an adjective meaning "superb" or "wonderful", a more common usage in his time than it is today. The term is related to the phrase "Bully for you", used in modern English since as early as 1864.
