14. Just for grins, I went to FR on Sunday.
1. Their comments about Hillary were nowhere near as nasty as those on DU.

2. They have their game plan ready against Obama: patriotism (e.g., Obama never served in the military); Wright; elitism; and Michelle.

The entire forum seemed rather subdued, but I only visited a few threads to check out the general atmosphere. On the Eight Belles thread, there was not one single ugly remark about Hillary choosing Eight Belles, the horse that died at the Derby. That surprised me.
