WEST BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX)-- Democratic U.S. Congressman Ron Klein, who attended a political dinner near Boynton Beach Thursday night, just met with former President Bill Clinton two weeks ago for a briefing on the Haiti earthquake Recovery.

"President Clinton only knows one speed and that is fast," said Klein.

The former president's time has been consumed with his role as the U.N.'s special envoy to Haiti.

Klein says Clinton looked worn out.

"He was probably under some stress with all the work he was doing. That probably bore down on him a little bit," added Klein.

Clinton was in Boca Raton January 19th at a fundraiser for State Senator Ted Deutch. He appeared to be sleeping during part of the event.

"When Bill Clinton was here a few weeks ago he did look tired, but otherwise looked in shape," said Palm Beach County Democratic Party Chair Mark Alan Siegel.
