Word(s) Moment: Bully Pulpit

bully pulpit

n.

An advantageous position, as for making one’s views known or rallying support: “The presidency had been transformed from a bully pulpit on Pennsylvania Avenue to a stage the size of the world” (Hugh Sidey).

I also found this Wikipedia article enlightening concerning this phrase.
