Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am on the right way with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following brief excerpt from an IHTís article?
McCain, who came of age in a chain-of-command culture, showed once again that he believes that individual leaders can play a catalytic role and should use the bully pulpit to push politicians. Obama, who came of age as a community organizer, showed once again that he believes several minds are better than one, and that, for all of his oratorical skill, he is wary of too much showmanship.
chain of command culture = hierarchy culture
bully pulpit = superb platform
Thank you for your efforts.
