There are just too many similarities between Frank and Claire Underwood vs. Bill and Hillary Clinton:
- Both couples are both political animals
- Both Claire and Hillary are the US "ambassadors" oversea, thanks to their husbands
- Both Bill and Frank are adulterers, and their wives choose to "forgive" them because of their own political ambitions
All these similarities can be coincidence in nature. But I can't help wonder whether the writers of House of Cards actually actively model the Underwood couple after Clintons? Is there any admission somewhere?
