Zbigniew Brzezinski, national security adviser in the Jimmy Carter administration, is endorsing Sen. Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Brzezinski, a key foreign-policy expert for the Democratic Party, told Bloomberg Television that Obama has a better global grasp than Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

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.''

``Obama is clearly more effective and has the upper hand. He has a sense of what is historically relevant, and what is needed from the United States in relationship to the world. I don't think the country needs to go back to what we had eight years ago.' There is a need for a fundamental rethinking of how we conduct world affairs. 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.''

Brzezinski said of Clinton: ``Being a former first lady doesn't prepare you to be president. President Truman didn't have much experience before he came to office. Neither did John Kennedy.''
