Especially when you see political ads trying to stick a negative connotation to the word "Liberal" and using it on Bill Nelson or other Democratic political candidates. The quote comes from no less than one of America's greatest presidents, the late John Fitzgerald Kennedy:

If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people - their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties - someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad; if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."
