a buick? Thanks for insulting the car that i have. But youre absolutely wrong. theres a reason why the EVO and the STi also come in AWD and not RWD. Thats because AWD is good for handling not bad. Obviously you have very limited experience with AWD cars.
I drive a 325i (RWD) and the A4 (AWD) everyday and i can tell you that my car is the winner when it comes to handling.

i think the only advantage of 4wd is apparent in world rally ...

i agree with the safe and easy to drive in snow etc. all true.
'course stock setups are different. however there is a lesson to be learned from the pros, and that is that the trade-off of worse traction of rwd for better accuracy and handling is often made.
i do not drive with nowhere near scca competitive skill, but i can definitely tell the difference between dull steering response and not. in my hands, at normal driving speeds, rwd is so much more eganging and just plain better to drive!!!. again, how fast is not the issue here, but how much feedback the car gives you. i could not give rats arse about horsepower, in fact i'd take a good handling car over a more powerful one any day (corvettes and most american muscle being the case..)
to me the difference is HUGE!!
