So's zat Tommmy Pendergast's hat in dere for re-blockin'? Harry and Bess'll be headin' down the aisle in month or so, I heard. Things'll be changin' fast for Harry an' th' Boss real soon now.

I wonder if the Boss ever entertained the idea that his one-time errand boy would find himself in the Oval Office someday (and help turn the US into a National Security state within 2 years of taking the oath)?

I figure Pendergast was working on a sooner than later schedule for just such an occasion from one of his toadies, but he prolly didn't have Truman in mind, as he wasn't as pliant as them.
