What will Dodd do next?
Wild speculation was in the air last night atop the offices of the Bipartisan Policy Center, which was formed by former Senate Majority Leaders, Dole, Daschle, Mitchell and Baker. Former Ag Sec. Dan Glickman, a BPC Senior Fellow, worked the room at the reception in his honor. Journos like Margaret Carlson, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, CNN Senior Political Analyst Gloria Borger and local ABC’s Gordon Peterson were spotted mingling in the crowd.
Glickman was until recently the chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America which continues to look for a new lobbying chief since his departure. Bob Pisano, former head of the Screen Actors Guild remains in the top post as the interim CEO of the MPAA, but speculation has run rampant ever since the vacancy. Former Sen. Bob Kerrey was the latest top name to bow out over the summer, and moderate Republican Tom Davis has been rumored to be the next candidate. One name that continues to circulate is retiring Senator Chris Dodd. Wonder if this photo is Dodd’s reaction to Glickman offering him the new gig?
We hear that Glickman, who was rumored to be the next Dean at GWU’s Graduate School of Political Management, will instead teach a course there called, “The Politics of Food” with Wendi Hausfeld, daughter of DC attorney Michael Hausfeld.
