CHICAGO--Moderator Tim Russert is asking about a national smoking ban. Clinton tees off, says tobacco should be regulated by the FDA--this is a reference to a long running proposal thwarted by Big Tobacco and then left to local governments to decide. Obama says similiar answer, without FDA angle.

But all the others--Dodd, Biden, Edwards, Gravel and Kucinich--said they would be for it.
