Are Frank and Claire modeled after Bill and Hillary Clinton?

There are just too many similarities between Frank and Claire Underwood vs. Bill and Hillary Clinton:

  1. Both couples are both political animals
  2. Both Claire and Hillary are the US "ambassadors" oversea, thanks to their husbands
  3. 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?
