MPAA chief Dan Glickman may be considering stepping down in order to run for the U.S. Senate in Kansas next year, Politico.com reported Monday. In an interview with the website, Glickman, who lost his Congressional seat to Republican Todd Tiahrt in 1994, indicated that he had been approached to enter the Democratic primary. Asked whether he was flirting with the idea of doing so, he replied, "I would say 'flirting' is too strong a word." However, he acknowledged that he was "interested" in the proposal, although the chances of his accepting it were "extremely remote." Nevertheless, he added, "Being a U.S. senator is still one of the best jobs in the world. I wouldn't deny that."
