# Move \item a little bit from left?

I want to move the item term a little bit from left? for instance,

move the first two items to the right a little bit. How could I do it?

 \documentclass{beamer}
\begin{document}

\begin{frame}{Consenus \& Distributed}
\begin{itemize}
\item[Distributed]  topology
\item[Consensus]    criterion
\end{itemize}
\begin{itemize}
\item One aim, not the same.
\item Consensus filtering is a special case of distributed filtering
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

• you might want to spell "consensus" correctly in the heading of the slide. – barbara beeton Mar 15 '15 at 16:32

You should be using description instead of itemize

 \documentclass{beamer}
\begin{document}

\begin{frame}{Consenus \& Distributed}
\begin{description}[Distributed]   %% [Distributed] is the longest label
\item[Distributed]  topology
\item[Consensus]    criterion
\end{description}
\begin{itemize}
\item One aim, not the same.
\item Consensus filtering is a special case of distributed filtering
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}
