In a model with a ForeignKey, (say Choice from the poll example), Choice.objects.values() will show one field as 'poll_id' for the ForeignKey.
However, if you want to select only that value, Choice.objects.values('poll_id') will raise FieldDoesNotExist. Instead it requires you to do Choice.objects.values('poll') and returns the values in the key 'poll'
