Dan Glickman said this week he guesses he’ll “end up in the nonprofit or academic world” when he steps down next September after six years as chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America. But does the 64-year-old former Democratic congressman from Wichita have politics in mind? The U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Republican Sam Brownback (and already fought over by Reps. Todd Tiahrt and Jerry Moran)? Or the governorship, toward which Brownback seems destined at this point? Of the Senate seat, Glickman said: “That’s probably not a very realistic option for me, (but) I never rule anything out,” noting he’d like to be a senator but doesn’t relish trying to raise campaign dollars. “We’ll see if there’s a groundswell from Kansas.” Glickman remains well-liked in his home state, but there are two potential roadblocks to statewide electability: He’s a Democrat, and now he’s also been a lobbyist — and for Hollywood, of all things.
