    Well, that's an interesting question.  As a 2008 Clinton supporter, it sure felt like being ganged up on and shouted down in what many felt was their online "home."  Suddenly "home" had become a hostile place.  Most of those who left felt that they were chased out and took great umbrage at that.  

    But morally superior? Not really.  I think the overriding feeling was hurt and anger at being marginalized.  


    It's the Supreme Court, stupid!

      I can say I was perhaps as non-biased on the Obama v. Clinton fighting as one could be here, and I did not see any qualitative difference between the vitriol dished out by each side.  Big-name posters here on DK were on each side dishing the hits out.  It was just as much a self-perpetuating cycle of implacable attacks as we see in the Israel/Palestine fights here.

      Pretending your you-know-what didn't stink is simply not accurate.
