80. Yes of course
It's not just a Clinton rule. It's a general rule for anyone in management. Keep your hands off the help.

I happen to be a manager and I do have a woman secretary and I will tell you that I am careful the way I behave around her. I don't tell off-color jokes, and I don't even tell her she looks nice in certain clothes. You have to be careful about the work environment you're creating when it's a man-woman office. And I do all this and I don't even have a sexual harrassment lawsuit hanging over me.

Now to the subject of Harding, Poppy and Ike, I would be categorical about it. They all needed to keep their hands off the help. If they didn't, then I condemn them for it.

As far as I know the evidence is far stronger for Harding than for either Poppy or Ike, but guilt or innocence aside, I condemn any manager who has an affair with women working for him. In an uneven power arrangement like that, it is not good for the company or whatever the organization is.
