Politicians and Ethics?

This just doesn't make any sense:
Bush is requiring his executive office staff to attend refresher courses on ethics and handling classified materials, according to a White House memo. [source]
Since when do politicians care about ethics? When have the two ever gone together? This is probably just another stunt to make it look like Bush is doing something about the CIA leak.
"The President has made clear his expectation that each member of his Executive Office of the President (EOP) staff adhere to the spirit as well as the letter of all rules governing ethical conduct for EOP staff," states the memo sent to Bush's staff.
Define "ethical conduct". Maybe I'm just being too much of a skeptic here, but hey, it's what I do best.
