There's at least on Clinton who likes Rudy Giuliani.

The Republican presidential candidate told a law-enforcement group in Louisiana that he has a letter from then-President Bill Clinton praising him for helping pass a federal anti-crime bill when he was mayor.

"I have a letter - I keep it at home," Giuliani told members of the Louisiana Sheriff's Association in Baton Rouge, according to the New York Post.

"It's a letter from President Clinton, congratulating me for all of my efforts and saying something like the crime bill couldn't have been passed if it weren't for me. I keep this letter. I'm going to use it at the right moment. You can imagine when," he said.

Giuliani was criticized by congressional Republicans at the time - who opposed provisions of the bill - for being too cozy with Clinton in 1994 and 1995.
