Daniel Robert Glickman (born November 24, 1944) is a United States politician. He served in the United States House of Representatives as a Democrat for 18 years, and is currently a lobbyist for the Motion Picture Association of America.

Glickman was born in Wichita, Kansas. He attended Kansas State University and graduated from University of Michigan and got his JD from George Washington University in 1969.

In 1969 and 1970, Glickman served on the Securities and Exchange Commission. In 1976, he ran for Congress as a Democrat from Kansas. In his last term, he was the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. He was defeated for reelection, by Todd Tiahrt, in the election of 1994, one of numerous Democrats to lose their seats.

Following his defeat, he was appointed by President Bill Clinton to be the Secretary of Agriculture, where he served from 1995 to 2001. After Clinton's term ended, Glickman became the director of the Institute of Politics at Harvard University. In 2004, the Motion Picture Association of America announced that Glickman would replace Jack Valenti as its chief lobbyist.
