It looks like they've just about wrecked Bush's chances of winning a third term:
Democrats attack Bush on Iraq in debate
All eight Democratic presidential hopefuls competed to strike the strongest opposition to the war in Iraq on Thursday evening as they held the first debate of what promises to be the longest presidential election campaign in US history.
The 90-minute event at South Carolina State University came more than eight months before the first primary elections and 18 months before the general election in November 2008.
Campaigning has started unusually early because the election is considered the most open in decades, with President George W. Bush required to step down after two terms in office and Vice-President Dick Cheney having ruled himself out.
They're also guaranteeing that any other Republican will be a welcome breath of fresh air.
