And he said those ethical standards need to extend to top administration officials, even on questions about travel and gifts. He quoted his first White House counsel, Greg Craig: "'If it sounds like it would be fun, then you can't do it.' That's a general test. 'If it sounds like something you would enjoy or appreciate, no go.'
