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

"This Isn't the Person I Campaigned With Back Then," Kerry Says of Edwards, Per Source

Political Punch: A source close to Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., says the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee has reacted with sorrow to the scandalous personal behavior of his former running mate, former Sen. John Edwards, D-NC.

“It’s a really sad personal family situation,” the source tells ABC News.

Kerry “reached out and called” Elizabeth Edwards a couple days ago, the source says. “He reached out and called her. He’s very sympathetic to the situation she’s going through, and that’s where his focus is.”
