He holds one of the most accomplished political resumes in the association world, having been elected a senator, a governor, a cabinet secretaryeven mayor of Boise, Idaho.
Indeed, during a recent interview at his downtown Washington, D.C., office at the American Council of Life Insurers, where he is now CEO, Dirk Kempthorne said a reporter happened to be sitting in the Senate chairand then proceeded to point out the governors chair and the cabinet chair in different corners of the room.
