Clark Clifford's new office was only four blocks from the White House. Clifford took on but one partner, Edward H. Miller, a lawyer from the Justice Department whom Clifford knew from St. Louis. Although he was an avowed liberal and a former adviser to Harry S. Truman, Clifford diligently worked to transform himself into someone that corporate America could be comfortable with. On November 15, 1949, a week before news of his departure was leaked to the press, Clifford gave a speech before the annual dinner of the Grocery Manufacturers Association. The speech, entitled “Business and the Government's Program,” stressed his conception of a symbiotic partnership between business and government. Much of the speech involved a defense and explanation of the Fair Deal as well as the Truman administration's foreign policy, but Clifford likely viewed the speech as an opportunity to present himself as an ally to the business community.
