Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have been too focused on a potential run for president in 2016 to have effectively negotiated the recent peace deal with Iran or other matters, former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski suggested Thursday.
"You can't help but wonder, was she more cautious because she thought, would she have been comfortable negotiating the Iran deal going into 2016?" Brzezinski said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
"My point is, [if] she's being cautious because she's thinking of 2016, then she's thinking about the wrong things while being secretary of state," the former adviser to President Jimmy Carter added.
Secretary of State John Kerry looks "more comfortable in his own skin right now" and is doing a "fantastic job," Brzezinski continued.
He emphasized, however, that he thought Clinton was "terrific" in the position. The difference between the two, he said, was that each had different agendas.
"He focuses on strategic issues ... She had a global agenda. She had a futuristic agenda, human rights, gender issues, global climate, et cetera," Brzezinski said.
