Best moment in an otherwise dreary Democratic debate in Iowa today: Des Moines Register Editor Carolyn Washburn asked Barack Obama how he's going to be the agent for change he says he'll be when so much of the foreign policy advice he's getting comes from former members of Bill Clinton's administration.

"I wanna hear that," Hillary Clinton jumped in.

Everyone laughed, then Obama got the better of it: "Hillary," he said, "I'm looking forward to you advising me, as well."
