The “bully pulpit” is the power of American presidents to get things done with the spoken word. FDR, Kennedy and Reagan were masterful. Bush was inept. Eisenhower was a man of few words; Clinton a man of too many. LBJ bullied; Carter sermonized. Truman spoke honestly; Nixon did not. Presidents talk a lot, but we remember most the sound bites they leave behind, like echoes. These are the top 10 presidential quotes of the 20th century.
