Dan Glickman: a bad economy can turn people to the right

Dan Glickman, now head of the MPAA, appears in “What’s the Matter with Kansas?” reminiscing about his defeat as a longtime Democratic Congressman from Wichita (filmmakers’ note: we’ve never heard a politician reflect on a lost election with such honesty and good humor as Mr. Glickman did for us.)

Speaking at a panel in advance of the Politics on Film Festival, he noted that hard times can just as easily turn the public to right as the left.  The key, of course, is who has the more persuasive message.  In the early 90s, the conservative movement was in full swing, and swept Glickman and many other moderate Democrats out of power in the 1994 election.
