Bill Clinton calls Perry 'good-looking rascal'

Former President Bill Clinton says Rick Perry is a "good-looking rascal" but dismisses the Texas governor's policies as "crazy."

Clinton made the comments Monday during an address to a meeting of the International Association of Firefighters. The Democrat told the group he had watched Perry's speech Saturday in which the governor announced he was running for president and joining the Republican race.

Clinton said it was "crazy" that Perry wants to cut the federal government but would take advantage of government perks like Air Force One if elected president.

Perry is on a weeklong campaign swing through early primary states.
