The Bully Pulpit 0

E. J. Dionne, musing over a conversation he had with Joe Biden:

For Republicans, American power is rooted largely in military might and showing a tough and resolute face to the world. They would rely on tax cuts as the one and only spur to economic growth.

Obama, Biden, and the Democrats, on the other hand, believe that American power depends ultimately on the American economy and that government has an essential role to play in fostering the next generation of growth.

The question: Should TR’s “bully pulpit” be used to bully or to lead?
