During tonight's Democratic presidential debate in South Carolina, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama engaged in what is by far the most heated and ugly exchange in the 2008 campaign and brought boos from the audience. Clinton brings up Obama's past statements on Iraq and refers to a recent statement he made about Ronald Reagan -- and it was on.

Clinton accused Obama of not being consistent in his statements about Iraq and his stance on Republican programs and Obama shot back sharply. There's plenty of nastiness in this exchange, both candidates took brutal shots at each other:

Obama:"...Because when I was working on those streets watching those folks see their jobs shipped overseas, you were a corporate lawyer sitting on the board of Wal-Mart. I was fighting these fights."

Clinton:"I was fighting those ideas while you were practicing law and representing your contributor, Rezko, in his slum-landlord business in inner city Chicago."
