I said you mean you and I being friends? He said yep. I said well Mr. President, Tom Clark was Harry Truman s best friend and when the steel thing went through and that case came to the Court, Tom Clark wrote the opinion tearing Truman down. And if and when I need to do it, I will do the same thing to you. And he said, that s as I would have it. And so I said, thank you, sir. We re in business.
