@Joe Nation,
Al Gore comes to mind right away. I am sure that there are lots of other examples. I suggest you make your list by starting with a list of Congresspeople you liked and seeing what they did after they retired (or lost an election).

Even the good guys have to have something to do after they leave public office.

Good idea.

I have a half-baked theory that no one elected to Federal Office, nor their spouse, nor any member of their senior staff should be allowed to become a lobbyist for a period of five years after leaving office. (That would prevent weapons manufacturers etc from dangling the promise of a fat-paychecked job in front of staff members' faces as they try to get particular legislation introduced to the House committees.)

Yes, he should. And you'd be the person I'd choose to do it. C'mon now, don't try to tell me you wouldn't enjoy it.
