The Democratic presidential candidates have taken part in a "virtual" forum online, with the Iraq war getting much of the attention.

The forum was sponsored by MoveOn.org.

Presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., used the opportunity to chide GOP rival Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., over his recent visit to a Baghdad market. While not mentioning McCain by name, the Illinois senator said using a heavily guarded walk through an Iraqi market to highlight security advances has no credibility.

All seven Democratic candidates who took part in the forum agreed that any Iraq solution would require political engagement, not military force. All of them also agreed on the need for a specific timetable for American troops to be removed from the country.
