Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Clinton frames win as sign of strength

PHILADELPHIA (Yahoo News) - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton celebrated another must-win victory Tuesday night in Pennsylvania, with a convincing win over Sen. Barack Obama that she sought to frame not just as a sign of her strength but of Obama's abiding weakness.

"Maybe the question ought to be, 'Why can't he close the deal?'" Clinton said Tuesday morning outside a polling place in Conshohocken, Pa.

In her victory speech, Clinton cast her 10-point margin -- larger than late polls suggested -- as a pivot.

"You made your voices heard, and because of you, the tide is turning," she said Tuesday night.
