Obama-Clinton exchange

During a debate between Democratic presidential hopefuls this month, Sen. Barack Obama said he would move U.S. foreign policy in a different direction if elected. He was asked how he would do this because several of his advisers once worked for President Bill Clinton.

Sen. Hillary Clinton, the wife of the former president and the Democratic frontrunner, laughed out loud and said, "I'm looking forward to hearing that."

The comment drew loud laughter from the crowd.

Obama waited for the laughter to subside and then responded, "Hillary, I'm looking forward to you advising me as well."

Obama got the last laugh.
