FILE - In this Oct. 18, 2011, file photo Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, right, spar during a Republican presidential debate in Las Vegas. Perry, still nursing wounds from his failed presidential campaign, did himself a world of good with his self-deprecating jokes at a dinner in Washington in March.
