This is interesting – Bloomberg reports that former Carter admin National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski has endorsed Barack Obama:
Obama “recognizes that the challenge is a new face, a new sense of direction, a new definition of America’s role in the world,” Brzezinski said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt.”
“There is a need for a fundamental rethinking of how we conduct world affairs,” he added. “And Obama seems to me to have both the guts and the intelligence to address that issue and to change the nature of America’s relationship with the world.”
Strangely enough, despite the ringing endorsement from “America’s most notable foreign policy realist“, Obama is being advised on foreign policy by unrepentant liberal interventionist Ivo “Concert of Democracies” Daalder of the Brookings Institution. That, coupled with Obama’s now-infamous close relationship with Joe Lieberman, has me reconsidering my somewhat reflexive antipathy towards Senator Clinton (and questioning Brzezinski’s judgment).
Update: Hilzoy’s take on the Brzezinski endorsement.
