Pole position . . . .

In my mind, when it comes to talking realistically tough and frighteningly to one’s rivals and opponents, Zbigniew Brzezinski is the question to the Jeopardy answer, “He’s going to tell me to ‘stuff it up my ass’ while he tears off my arm and begins the insertion.”


Suffice it to say, I was moderately intrigued when I read this little nugget tonight . . . . .

““Obama is clearly more effective and has the upper hand,” Brzezinski, who was President Jimmy Carter‘s national security adviser, said. “He has a sense of what is historically relevant, and what is needed from the United States in relationship to the world.”

Brzezinski, 79, dismissed the notion that Clinton, 59, a New York senator and the wife of former President Bill Clinton, is more seasoned than Obama, 46. “Being a former first lady doesn’t prepare you to be president,” Brzezinski said.

Clinton’s foreign-policy approach is “very conventional,” Brzezinski said. “I don’t think the country needs to go back to what we had eight years ago.”

Who says the Democratic nomination race isn’t going to get interesting, especially with a Cold Warrior who makes Dick Cheney look like a fat kid in a sandbox?
